3. Our role
BY COMPLETING A SUBMISSION OR ENTERING A LAUNCH, YOU ARE CONTRACTING WITH THE RETAILER DIRECTLY FOR THE PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS, ON THE RETAILER’S TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE.
Where applicable, we facilitate the transfer of payments by Successful Users for their Orders on behalf of the applicable Retailer as a limited payment agent for that Retailer and will immediately cease to act in that capacity once payment is received by the Retailer.
For the avoidance of doubt, we:
- are neither offering to sell Products nor advertising or promoting the sale of Products;
- are not responsible for repairing or replacing damaged Products;
- are not responsible for fulfilment of your Orders, including delivery or in-store pick up experiences;
- are not responsible for refunding any amounts paid to the Retailer – all refunds must be discussed with and facilitated by the Retailer; and
- expressly disclaim any involvement in disputes between Users and Retailers about Orders Products, or any in-store pick ups.
Making Submissions and participating in Draws is free.
Users making Submissions may also have a $0 pre-authorisation charge placed against applicable payment methods. For in-store launch processes this may also take place when in-store, or as otherwise directed by the relevant Retailer. This pre-authorisation does not indicate a User is a Sucessful User or constitute any part of the sale price of a Product, and will solely be implemented for verification purposes.
The Launch Live Period operates from the date, and continues for the period, indicated on the Site. Each Launch will be open for Submissions only for the Launch Live Period.
To participate in a Draw, you must complete a EQL Form on our Site by selecting the Launch you wish to participate in and providing the following details about yourself:
- first and last name;
- phone number;
- email address;
- date of birth;
- billing and shipping addresses, or applicable store for pick up; and
- any other details relevant to the draw, for example apparel size.
You must also provide details sufficient to process payment of your Order (including any Delivery Costs and Handling Costs) in accordance with clauses 6 and 8.
We may not be able to accept your Submission if you do not provide accurate and complete details via the EQL Form.
You will receive a confirmation message after you have completed the EQL Form. Your entry will only be considered valid once you have verified your phone number and email address with us.
You may only make one Submission per Launch. You may enter a Submission to multiple simultaneous Launches but can only make a single Order for each model of Product across all Launches and Retailers.
We reserve the right to close the EQL Form early or restrict access to the EQL Form to certain Users if we suspect fraudulent behaviour or tampering with the Submission process or for any other reason (acting reasonably).
5. Draws and orders
Each eligible User who has completed a valid Submission in relation to a Launch during the applicable Launch Live Period, and is not in breach of this Agreement, will be included in the Draw for that Launch.
You may not cancel a Submission after a Draw or Launch has been closed.
Draws will be carried out three days after closure of the Launch Live Period for the applicable Launch.
During the Draw, one or more Successful Users will receive an entry that may be selected from the pool of tickets of Users who have made a valid Submission for a given Launch. Each User entry has an equal chance to be selected as a Successful User for the first time that User participates in a Draw. Users who are unsuccessful in a Draw may be eligible for our EQLIZER promotion – which grants eligible unsuccessful Users an extra entry in the next Draw they participate in.
Following the Draw, we will contact Users to notify them of the outcome, we will also notify the Successful Users that their Order has been accepted. Where applicable for online launches we will and automatically initiate the payment process of the Total Purchase Amount from each Successful User on behalf of the Retailer in accordance with clause 6. Successful Users of in-store pick up launches will be sent pick up instructions as provided by the relevant Retailer, and will be required to comply with all such requests of a Retailer in order to complete the purchase of a Product. Such Users will not be considered a Successful User until the Retailer’s specific requirements and payment process have been completed as determined and set out by the Retailer. To be clear, being notified to collect a Product in-store does not guarantee or create a right to purchase the Product.
Orders and purchases are only valid for the registered email, shipping address, product, size and payment method specified at entry.
Entries cannot be sold, transferred, assigned or otherwise provided to anyone else. Evidence of such behaviour by any User will result in disqualification. Entries have no cash value and are not redeemable for cash or credit.
Your eligibility to participate in a Draw, make Orders and purchase Products is subject to and conditional on:
- your current and continued compliance with this Agreement;
- the successful transfer of funds from you to the Retailer as payment for your Order; and
- the stock availability of Products in your selected size.
We reserve the right in our sole discretion to disqualify any individual we suspect to be tampering with the Submission process or the operation of a Draw and/or purchase of Products or to be acting in violation of this Agreement or otherwise in a bad faith or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of a Draw and/or Product purchase may violate criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, we reserve the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.
We may conduct a redraw for any Successful Users who become ineligible or are disqualified from participating in a Draw, as determined in EQL’s sole discretion.
You agree to pay the Total Purchase Amount (including Delivery Costs and Handling Costs where applicable) for the Order to the Retailer as they are calculated and quoted to you at the time the EQL Form is completed, or as otherwise advised. In the event of in-store pick ups this may include additional charges or costs placed on the purchase by Retailers.
All prices listed on the Site are set solely by the Retailer and are denominated in the currency indicated by the Retailer.
You may be obliged to pay additional import duties, sales tax or tariffs in relation to your Order, in accordance with the laws of your jurisdiction.
