Terms of Use
Effective Date: February 21, 2014

The site (the "Site") is owned and operated by Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. and its Family of Businesses (collectively, "DICK'S"). These terms (these "Terms") are provided by DICK'S and applicable to all DICK'S operations at or through our websites, our mobile/table sites, our social media presence, our applications, and our stores.

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE SITE. YOUR USE OF THE SITE CONFIRMS YOUR UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT FULLY ACCEPT THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE THE SITE.

  1. Use of the Site. The Site is a general purpose site and is not targeted towards children under the age of 13. By registering an account on the Site, you represent and warrant that you are 18 years of age or older. If we become aware that you are under the age of 18, we will terminate your registration.

    You may use the Site solely for your personal, non-commercial use. You acknowledge and agree that we do not control the User Content (as defined herein) posted to the Site, or any links to other sites, including the content of any messages or posts, and that we do not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of User Content. All User Content, including advice and opinions posted by users, comprises the views and responsibilities of those who post such User Content and does not necessarily represent our views. You understand that, by using the Site, you may be exposed to User Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable.

    You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password information and for restricting access to such information and to your device. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password.

  2. Revisions to these Terms. DICK's may revise these Terms at any time and from time to time by updating this posting. You should visit this page from time to time to review the current Terms as they are binding on you. Certain provisions of these Terms may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages of the Site. Your continued use of the Site after any modifications indicates your acceptance of the modified Terms.

  3. Products, Content and Specifications. All features, content, specifications, products and prices of products and services described or depicted on the Site are subject to change at any time without notice. Certain weights, measures and similar descriptions are approximate and are provided for convenience purposes only. We make all reasonable efforts to accurately display the attributes of our products and services, including the applicable colors; however, the actual color you see depends on your device set-up, and we cannot guarantee that your device will accurately display such colors. The inclusion of any products or services on the Site at a particular time does not imply or warrant that these products or services will be available at any time.

  4. Applicable Law. It is your responsibility to ascertain and obey all applicable local, state, federal and international laws (including minimum age requirements) in regard to the possession, use and sale of any product or service purchased via the Site. By placing an order, you represent that the products or services ordered will be used only in a lawful manner and as intended by such manufacturer.

  5. Shipping Limitations. When an order is placed, it will be shipped to an address designated by the purchaser as long as that shipping address is compliant with the shipping restrictions contained on the Site. All purchases from the Site are made pursuant to a shipment contract. As a result, risk of loss and title for products purchased from the Site pass to you upon delivery to the carrier. You are responsible for filing any claims with carriers for damaged and/or lost shipments.

  6. Accuracy of Information. We attempt to ensure that information on the Site is complete, accurate and up to date. Despite our efforts, the information on the Site may occasionally be inaccurate, incomplete or out-of-date. We make no representation as to the completeness, accuracy or currency of any information on the Site. For example, products or services included on the Site may be unavailable, may have different attributes than those listed, or may carry a different price than what is stated on the Site. In addition, we may make changes in information about price and/or availability without notice. In the event of a pricing error or discrepancy on the Site, we reserve the right to cancel any such orders.

    While it is our practice to confirm orders by email, the receipt of an email order confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of an order or our confirmation of an offer to sell a product or service. We reserve the right, without prior notice, to limit the order quantity on any product or service and/or to refuse service of any order or to any customer. We also may require verification of information prior to the acceptance and/or shipment of any order.
