For group adress delivery, the customer recognizes that the product is set to be delivered at the adress indicated in the order. Once delivered at the indicated adress, Decathlon.ca is therefore no longer responsible of the order.

In the case of a delivery on some areas difficult to reach, the delivery will take place on the nearest center. The transportation of products from this center to the final delivery location may be made by a carrier separate from the marine carrier mandated by decathlon.ca. This delivery may result in additional billing by this carrier, which will be charged to the customer.

The delays annonced on the website are calculated starting the day the products are ready to be shipped. The client is informed of the day of the shipping by email.

What can I do if i'm absent the day of the shipping?

For delivery by mail, the customer absent during the delivery has a delay to go to recover his parcel at the indicated place. Beyond this time, the package will be returned to decathlon.ca. We will send a first reminder to the customer, by email. In the absence of response from the customer within 7 days, decathlon.ca will refund the amount of the order, after deduction of shipping costs.

For the delivery of heavy products, the transportation service within decathlon.ca or the transport provider will contact the customer directly to arrange a delivery schedule. In case of absence of the customer at the place of delivery, at the agreed time, the customer must notify decathlon.ca at least five (5) working days before the agreed delivery date.

ARTICLE 5 - WARRANTY/AFTER SALES SERVICE

5-1 General informations


-Legal warranties:

Regardless of any additional conventional warranty that may be granted to the customer, decathlon.ca remains subject to the legal warranties relating to the products sold (“Sale of Goods Acts” et “Consumer Protection Acts”).


-Commercial warranty

Certain products sold on the website may benefit from a conventional warranty whose duration, scope and conditions will be mentioned on the product page of the articles concerned.

Our warranty policy is not applicable in the event of defect, damage resulting from negligence, external events, improper installation, or use not in accordance with the supplier's instructions. Decathlon.ca would also bring to the customer’s attention that the defect or dysfunction could also be a consequence of bad manipulation or bad installation. Therefore, Decathlon.ca invite the customer to follow the instructions of the troubleshooting guides available on the website and to perform several tests on the material received.

5-2 Terms of application of the warranties

If the customer finds a product defective during the period of legal or commercial warranty, or not compliant with the order, it’s possible to ask for the after sale services on Decathlon.ca.

To make a refund on decathlon.ca, the customer has to go on his « My account » => « My purchases » => « My online purchases » and specify the occured difficulty or malfunction. These steps will allow the customer to get a refund number.

As part of the warranty, decathlon.ca offers the customer either to bring his product to a Decathlon store located in Canada, or to return his product via the website. The assumption of the expenses of port will be carried out under the conditions envisaged by the law, whatever the chosen option. It is already stated here that all shipping costs of the product, related to a return under a commercial warranty, will be the sole responsibility of the customer.

Once the request processed, Decathlon.ca will verifify if the return falls under either the legal or commercial warranty. The product will be then repared or exchanged. If the product cannot be repared or exchanged by an equivalent or identical product, it will be reimbursed.In all cases, Decathlon.ca will always propose the more adequate solution (replacement of the defective part, replacement of the item or refund)

In case of abnormal or abusive return, the return will be considered as non-conforming return and treated as such. Likewise, all returned products without a return number will be systematically treated as non-compliant returns. It is reminded that the customer is free to choose the method of sending his product and to subscribe or not to an insurance in case of loss, theft or destruction of his parcel. Decathlon.ca does not support any of these costs and cannot be held responsible for non-receipt of the package from the Internet. Finally, the customer is responsible for the packaging of his product, which must be made in such a way that the product can travel without risk of breakage or degradation.
