These Terms do not apply to the sale and purchase of services or insurances through our Website.

The Website is operated, and Product(s) are sold you by HMD Global Oy, a company incorporated in Finland with its registered office at Bertel Jungin aukio 9, 02600 Espoo, Finland and with Business ID 2724044-2 (“HMD Global”, “we”, “us”).

If you do not agree to be bound by these Terms, you may not order Products from our Website. These Terms do not affect or limit your statutory rights as a consumer that cannot be limited or excluded under applicable law.

Placing orders through our Website

By placing an order through our Website, you are making an offer to us to purchase the Product(s) in your order. Orders are placed through our Website by adding the Product(s) you wish to purchase to your shopping cart. Once you have added the Products to your shopping cart, you can proceed to checkout.

Shortly after our receipt of your order, we will send you an email confirming that we have received your order. Please note that the order confirmation email merely confirms that we have received your order and does not constitute a formal acceptance of your order. All orders placed through our Website are subject to our subsequent acceptance. The decision to accept your order is at HMD Global’s sole discretion. All Products, prices, and descriptions indicated on our Website are subject to availability and do not constitute an offer by us. HMD Global reserves the right to withdraw or revise any Products, prices, and descriptions indicated on our Website at any time prior to our acceptance of your order.

Once your order has been processed and prepared for shipping, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that your order has been accepted. The email will also contain the shipping details for your order. Our acceptance of your order shall become valid at the time when the order acceptance email has been sent to you.

While we endeavor to ensure that the Products appearing on our Website are available at all times, we cannot guarantee that all Products are in stock or immediately available when you place your order. We may reject your order if we are unable to process or fulfill it. In the event that your order is rejected, we will refund all payments we have received from you for such Products.

Returns policy

30-day right to return. You have the right to return your Product(s) within 30 days of the date on which you, or a person indicated by you, have or has received the Product(s).

Orders for several items. If you have made an order for several items, you do not need to return the whole order. When you are initiating the return, you can choose which items from your order you want to return. You can only make one return per order, so please ensure that you send back all of the items you do not want in one return. If you ordered items that were featured in a bundle offer, you cannot send part of the bundle offer back. For example, if you ordered a phone that came with an accessory for free or at a discounted price, you cannot return just the phone — you must send the accessory back as well. We reserve the right to charge for any accessories not returned at their full value.

If you fail to comply with these obligations, we may decline to inspect your Product(s) for the suspected defects. We recommend that you to obtain a proof of mailing when returning Product(s) to us. HMD Global has no obligation to accept a refund or exchange if the Product(s) returned is deemed to have been damaged.

Once we have received your request to return the Product(s), we will provide you with the details on how to return your Products or arrange for their collection.

We will initiate a refund once we have received the Product(s) that are being returned. We will use the same payment method to refund you that you used for your order. If you paid by credit or debit card, your refund will be sent to the card-issuing bank within seven business days of receipt of the returned Product(s).
