In particular, you must provide your real name, phone number, email address and other requested information as indicated. Furthermore, you will be required to provide payment details that you represent and warrant are both valid and correct and you confirm that you are the person referred to in the billing information provided.
The site is available only to individuals and others who meet the BEHIND THE RACQUET terms of eligibility, who have been issued a valid credit/debit card by a bank acceptable to BEHIND THE RACQUET, whose applications are acceptable to BEHIND THE RACQUET and who have authorized BEHIND THE RACQUET to process a charge or charges on their credit/debit card in the amount of the total purchase price for the merchandise which they purchase. BEHIND THE RACQUET may restrict the quantities of an item being shipped to any one customer or address.
By making an offer to purchase merchandise, you expressly authorize us to perform credit checks and, where BEHIND THE RACQUET feels necessary and to the extent permitted by the applicable laws, to transmit or to obtain information (including any updated information) about you to or from third parties, including but not limited to your credit/debit card number or credit reports (including credit reports for your spouse if you reside in a community property jurisdiction), to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit/debit card, to obtain an initial credit/debit card authorization and to authorize individual purchase transactions.
Furthermore, you agree that we may use personal information provided by you in order to conduct appropriate anti-fraud checks. Personal information that you provide may be disclosed to a credit reference or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information.
To place an order, you must add items to your Shopping Bag, enter your billing/shipping address, select your delivery option and choose your payment method to complete your order.
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability, and items in your Shopping Bag are not reserved and may be purchased by other customers.
BEHIND THE RACQUET offers products for sale that are in stock and available for dispatch from our distribution centre. Occasionally, however, we may be waiting for shipments from our designer suppliers. Consequently, you may from time to time be given the possibility of making an Advance Payment for certain items in which case you are able to make an Advance Purchase. This will ensure that you receive this item in priority once the stock has been delivered to BEHIND THE RACQUET. BEHIND THE RACQUET will only take Advance Purchase orders for stock that has been scheduled for delivery by a designer supplier. Your rights regarding Advance Purchase are the same as those for any other purchase at BEHIND THE RACQUET. Alternatively, you may simply choose to register your email address for notification of arrival of the selected merchandise not held in stock.
Items received into stock may be pre-allocated to satisfy Advance Payment orders and customers making Advance Payments will receive items in priority to customers on the Waiting List or customers ordering through the site for immediate delivery. Please be aware that we may be unable to deliver selected Advance Payment merchandise due to production problems or quality check issues identified when we receive an order into stock. In these circumstances we will notify you by email and refund the Advance Payment to your credit/debit card within thirty days of being advised that merchandise has become unavailable.
If you have registered your email address for notification of the arrival of a specific product featured on our site, we will attempt to notify you by email within 48 hours of the product becoming available on the site. Please be aware that on occasion, certain products that are in particularly high demand will sell out during this period.
BEHIND THE RACQUET will store a record of your transactions for a minimum of one year.
We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the Colors of our products that appear on the Site. We cannot guarantee that your computer monitor’s display of any color will be accurate.
4. Pricing policy
Prices shown on the Site are in US Dollars and are exclusive of taxes. If you are shipping within the USA, local sales tax will be charged where applicable. No other tax or import duty will be applied to orders shipped within the USA.
All prices and offers remain valid as advertised from time to time. The US Dollar price of a product displayed on the Site at the time the order is accepted will be honored, except in cases of patent error.
From time to time, prices are subject to change in response to currency exchange rate changes, markdowns and other commercial factors. The price applicable to your order will be the price current at the time your order is accepted.
Customers purchasing from a country served as DDP will incur relevant import duty and tax. These costs are included in the final purchase price. Customers purchasing from a country served as DDU will be charged for the items purchased and shipping costs only. Import duty or tax costs will be invoiced to you directly from DHL or an import broker appointed by you. We recommend you contact your local customs authority to determine a landed cost price prior to purchase completion.
If you are a customer whose credit/debit card is not denominated in US Dollars, the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your card issuer processes the transaction.
5. Sale pricing policy
BEHIND THE RACQUET will offer a Sale Price Adjustment on items purchased up to 7 days prior to the commencement date of a sale. Please be aware that the exact style and size of an item must be available for purchase at the time your request is made before any adjustment in the sale price can be approved. All approved Sale Price Adjustments will be credited to your BEHIND THE RACQUET account in the form of store credit.
We are unable to offer price adjustments on items originally purchased in a sale or on any special promotion items that are temporarily reduced in price. Once an item has been purchased at a discounted sale price, no price adjustment will be offered should the item be further marked-down.
6. Acceptance of your order
Once your order has been placed, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is NOT an acceptance of your order, just a confirmation that we have received it.
On the confirmation page of your order, we will provide you with an order summary of each product, the price (including all applicable fees and taxes), and the cost of shipping.
Your order is an irrevocable offer to buy the products. Before proceeding to purchase, please check the order details and correct any possible errors.
Unless you cancel your order, acceptance of your order and completion of the contract between you and BEHIND THE RACQUET will be completed when we email you to confirm the goods have been dispatched. English is the language used for finalizing the contract. Neither our third- party payment processor nor our nominated courier has the authority to accept an order on behalf of BEHIND THE RACQUET.
We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event, for example, that we are unable to obtain authorization for payment, that shipping restrictions apply to a particular item, that the item ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy our quality control standards and is withdrawn, or that you do not meet the eligibility criteria set out within the TOS.
We may also refuse to process and therefore accept a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time when the transaction or service does not comply with our business policy, or in the event where there are reports or suspicion of fraudulent or illegal activity. In these events, we will not be liable for refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun. To the extent permitted by the applicable law, we will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of our withdrawing any merchandise from the site whether or not that merchandise has been sold, removing, screening or editing any materials or content on the site. We reserve the right not to accept orders received from users who are acting for commercial and professional purposes. Whilst every effort is made to make sure details on our website are accurate, we may from time to time discover an error in the pricing of products. If we discover a patent error in the pricing of a product in your order, we will let you know as soon as possible. We shall be under no obligation to accept or fulfill an order for a product that was advertised at an incorrect price, provided that the error was recognizable, and reserve the right to cancel such an order that has been accepted or is in transit. If you order a product that is patently priced incorrectly for any reason, we will email or telephone you to inform you that we have not accepted your order and/or that the relevant part of your order has been cancelled. If you have already paid for the goods, we shall refund the full amount as soon as we are able. In the event that products are recalled in transit, we will process your refund once the products have been returned to us.
Payment can be made by Visa, MasterCard and American Express, and any other methods which may be clearly advertised on the Site from time to time. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorized by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment to BEHIND THE RACQUET, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
We take reasonable care to make our site secure. All credit/debit card transactions on this site are processed using a secure online payment gateway that encrypts your card details in a secure host environment. If you are a registered BEHIND THE RACQUET user, we will securely store your credit/debit card details on our systems. These details will be fully encrypted and only used to process card transactions which you have initiated.
To help ensure that your shopping experience is safe, simple, and secure, BEHIND THE RACQUET uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Furthermore, we take reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the site.
8. Gift cards
Gift Cards are not available to purchase.
9. Insurance and delivery and shipping
You will own the goods on and from the later of the point in time when: (a) we receive payment in full, or (b) we deliver the goods to you.
BEHIND THE RACQUET insures each purchase during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to your specified delivery address. We require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfillment by BEHIND THE RACQUET, and transfer of responsibility in the same way. The goods are your responsibility from the time we deliver them to the address you gave us.
The signature can be waived for domestic orders dispatched via UPS. When placing an order, the signature requirement is set by default; however, you can update your preference on the shipping page before proceeding to purchase. Please note, that if no signature is collected, you agree to our terms and conditions and, confirm that BEHIND THE RACQUET can leave your package(s) outside the premises at the shipping address provided by you without obtaining a signature for proof of delivery. You authorize BEHIND THE RACQUET to leave the package(s) at the shipping address without obtaining a signature and release and indemnify BEHIND THE RACQUET from liability for any loss or damage that may result from leaving the package(s) at your shipping address without obtaining a signature.
Please note that we aim to dispatch all orders within 72 hours, or 96 hours during sale periods. Delivery times appearing on the Site are estimates and are to be used as a guide only and commence from the date of dispatch. In any event, we will deliver the goods to you within 30 days of the day on which we accept your order. BEHIND THE RACQUET is not responsible for any delays caused by destination customs clearance processes. If delivery is delayed by any event outside of our control, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimize the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to cancel your order and we will give you a refund for any goods you have paid for but not received.
Lastly, BEHIND THE RACQUET reserves the right to implement a flat rate shipping fee for any and all domestic and/or international orders.
