The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.
18. Dispute resolution; injunctive relief
It is important that you read this entire section carefully. This section provides for resolution of disputes through final and binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury.
Any dispute, difference, controversy or claim between us or by either of us against the other or the employees, agents, mandataries, officers, directors, successors, assigns or affiliates of the other, arising out of, relating to, or having any connection with, the present terms, this website, any use of this website and any transaction conducted on or from it (whether contractual or extra-contractual, in contract or tort, pursuant to statute or regulation, or otherwise, and whether pre-existing, present or future), including any question regarding negotiation, formation, existence, validity, performance, effects, interpretation, breach, resolution or annulment and further including the applicability or scope of this arbitration clause (including the National Arbitration Forum's Code of Procedure discussed below) (hereinafter collectively referred to as "Claims" and each, individually, as a "Claim") shall be referred to and finally resolved by binding arbitration, to the exclusion of courts of law, before or under the rules of the National Arbitration Forum under the Code of Procedure then in effect and any specific procedures for the resolution of small claims and/or consumer disputes then in effect (which you may obtain at www.arbitration-forum.com or by mail at P.O. Box 50191, Minneapolis, MN 55405), which Code of Procedure, as in effect or replaced from time to time, is incorporated into and forms an integral part of these terms.
However, before you submit a Claim for arbitration, you must first contact our customer service representatives at 1-888-818-2536, and give us an opportunity to resolve the dispute. Similarly, before ALDO takes a dispute to arbitration, we must first attempt to resolve it by contacting you. If the dispute cannot be satisfactorily resolved within sixty (60) days from the date you or ALDO is notified by the other of a dispute, then either party may then initiate the arbitration process as provided in the National Arbitration Forum's Code of Procedure.
For greater certainty, no recourse may be made by either party to any court or tribunal, whether federal or provincial, in respect of any matter whatsoever relating to these terms including, without limitation, any Claim, any arbitration initiated to resolve a Claim, and any arbitration award made in relation to a Claim, except as expressly permitted in these terms or by law. Any award rendered pursuant to the arbitration shall be final and binding on each of the parties and no appeal shall lie from such award. Such award may be rendered enforceable and executory by any court having jurisdiction over the person or the property of the person against whom enforcement of the award is sought.
No claim may be joined with another lawsuit, or in an arbitration with a dispute of any other person, or resolved on a class-wide basis. The parties expressly agree that any claim that is arbitrated pursuant to these terms shall not be consolidated with any other arbitral proceeding for any reason. The arbitrator may not award damages that are barred by these terms and may not award exemplary or punitive damages or attorneys' fees. You and aldo both waive any claims for an award of damages that are excluded under these terms.
Injunctive Relief and Provisional Relief
Notwithstanding the provisions in this Section 17, the National Arbitration Forum's Code of Procedure or any other provision of these terms, ALDO shall have the right to seek and obtain any injunctive, provisional or interim relief from any court of competent jurisdiction to protect its trade-mark or other intellectual property rights or confidential information or to preserve the status quo pending arbitration.
19. Changes to terms/severability
ALDO may modify, alter or otherwise update the terms applicable to this website from time to time. We will notify you of any such modifications to this website by posting notice of such changes on this website. Following the posting of such changes, your continued use of this site will constitute your acceptance of these terms and other policies, as modified. You will be bound by such changes. If any one of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, such condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
This website is controlled and operated by ALDO from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. ALDO makes no representation that materials on the website are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who choose to access this website from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
22. No waiver
The failure of ALDO to enforce any provisions of these terms or to respond to a breach by you or any third party of these terms shall not in any way waive the right of ALDO to subsequently enforce any of the terms and conditions contained herein or to act with respect to similar breaches.
23. Entire agreement
These terms, together with all other agreements, terms or conditions incorporated or referred to herein constitute the entire agreement between you and ALDO with respect to the use of this website and any transaction conducted on or from this website and its contents, and supersede any prior understandings or agreements (whether electronic, oral or written) regarding the subject matter hereof, and may not be amended or modified except in writing, or by ALDO making such amendments or modifications available to it pursuant to the terms hereof.

Terms and conditions of sale
This agreement (“Agreement”) sets forth the terms and conditions that apply to the purchase of products and/or services (the “Products”) from ALDO U.S., Inc. (“ALDO”) using the www.aldoshoes.com website. ALDO reserves the right to change these terms and conditions without prior written notice at any time, at ALDO’s sole discretion.

This agreement contains important information about your rights and obligations, as well as limitations and exclusions that may apply to you. This agreement also contains a dispute resolution clause, found in section 13.
As further discussed in section 11 of this agreement, except as expressly provided for in this agreement, aldo does not make or give any representation or warranty with respect to the products you may purchase from this website and aldo's liability is limited as provided in that section.
1. Consent to use to electronic documents
You hereby consent to the exchange of information and documents between you and ALDO over the Internet or by e-mail, and that this Agreement (together with any applicable Order Confirmation(s) accepted by ALDO as indicated in Section 3, below) in electronic form shall be the equivalent of an original written paper agreement between us. You further agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
2. Other documents, agreements and policies
Before submitting an order for the purchase of Products using this website, you will be shown an order confirmation screen (the “ Order Confirmation”) describing, among other things, the Product(s) to be ordered, the purchase price and any applicable charges for shipping and taxes. When you submit your order (by pressing the [“ Submit Order”] button), such order will constitute an offer from you to ALDO to purchase the Product(s) described in the Order Confirmation, for the price and subject to the other charges, terms and conditions set out in the Order Confirmation. Orders are not binding on ALDO until accepted by ALDO. ALDO’s acceptance of your order is evidenced by return e-mail from ALDO indicating that your order has been accepted.
ALDO reserves the right, in its discretion, to limit quantities, terminate accounts and to refuse or cancel any order, including after the order has been submitted, whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. In the event that your order is cancelled after your payment has been processed, ALDO will issue a full refund.
All prices quoted are payable in U.S. Dollars. Although ALDO strives to provide accurate product and pricing information, errors may occur. ALDO reserves the right to correct any errors in pricing or product information and to modify the prices of Products, at any time, without prior notice. ALDO cannot confirm the price of a Product until after you submit an order for the Product. Without limiting the generality of Section 4 above, in the event that the price or related information for a Product (as described on the www.aldoshoes.com website and/or the Order Confirmation) is incorrect due to an error in pricing or product information, ALDO may, at its sole discretion, refuse or cancel your order, whether before or after ALDO’s acceptance thereof. If there is such an error in pricing, ALDO will cancel your order and reverse any charges that have been applied, then contact you to ask you to place a new order for the Product at the correct price.
6. Payment terms
Terms of payment shall be determined at ALDO’s sole discretion. Payment shall be made by credit card unless some other pre-arranged method of payment has been accepted by ALDO. Any payments made by credit card are subject to the approval of the financial institution that has issued the credit card.
7. Product availability
The availability of certain Products may be limited, and Products may not be available for immediate delivery. ALDO may revise or cease to make available any Products at any time without prior notice. In the event that ALDO is unable to deliver you a Product ordered due to lack of availability, ALDO will notify you via e-mail and your order will be automatically cancelled with respect to such unavailable Product, provided that ALDO may, in its sole discretion, contact you in order to allow you to maintain your order subject to a revised delivery time if and when the Product becomes available.
The products available for sale and/or distribution by ALDO are available only in the contiguous United States (i.e. the U.S.A. less Alaska or Hawaii).
8. Shipping; taxes
ALDO will arrange for the shipping of the Product(s) ordered by you according to the delivery method you have chosen and to the address indicated in the Order Confirmation. ALDO will only arrange for the shipping of products to addresses located in the contiguous United States (i.e. the U.S.A. less Alaska or Hawaii). Delivery times provided by ALDO are estimates only. ALDO shall not be responsible for any damages or costs resulting from any delays in delivery.
Unless otherwise stated, all prices quoted do not include shipping and handling charges and, where applicable, federal and state sales taxes. The applicable taxes and shipping charges will be shown separately on the Order Confirmation. You are responsible for all sales, use, goods and services, harmonized sales, and other taxes and duties associated with the order.
Tax charges are calculated on the basis of the shipping and/or delivery address associated with your order. Where required, sales tax will also be applied to the shipping and handling charges. If you return an item for a refund, you will also receive a refund for the sales taxes you paid for the Product. You will not, however, receive a refund for the sales taxes you paid on the shipping and handling of the item, as the shipping and handling charges are non-refundable once an item has been shipped. If you have any questions about the sales taxes on your order, or whether taxes are applicable to your shipping and handling charges, please call us anytime at 1-888-818-2536.
9. Ownership; risk of loss
All Product(s) purchased from ALDO are delivered to you by a third party delivery company, pursuant to a shipping contract. Since the actual delivery of your order can be impacted by many events beyond ALDO's control once it leaves our facilities, ALDO cannot be held liable for late deliveries. ALDO will, however, work with you to ensure a smooth delivery.
All Product returns are subject to the ALDO Return Policy, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference. Some restrictions may apply.
11. Exclusion of warranties and limitation of liability
Except as expressly provided for in this agreement, aldo does not make or give any representation, warranty or condition of any kind, whether express or implied, statutory or otherwise, including without limitation warranties as to uninterrupted or error free transactions, privacy, security, merchantability, quality, title, durability, suitability, non-infringement or fitness for a particular purposes, or those arising out of a course of dealing or usage of trade.In no event will aldo be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages, howsoever caused, including but not limited to, any lost profits, lost savings, loss of use or lack of availability of facilities including computer resources, routers and stored data, punitive, exemplary, aggravated or economic damages, arising out of the products provided by aldo or otherwise related to this agreement or the transactions conducted on or from the www.aldoshoes.com website, even if aldo or any of their lawful agents, contractors, employees or mandataries have been advised of the possibility of such damages or claim. In no case will aldo’s total liability arising under any cause whatsoever (including without limitation breach of contract, negligence, gross negligence or otherwise) be for more than the amount paid by you for the specific products ordered under this agreement and to which the claim relates. In no event will aldo be liable to you for damages or losses resulting from viruses, data corruption, failed messages, damages arising as a result of: transmission errors or problems, telecommunications service providers, aldo’s contractors, the internet backbone, third-party suppliers of products or services, damages or losses caused by you, or your respective employees, agents, mandataries or subcontractors, or other events beyond the reasonable control of ALDO.
Certain federal, state or provincial laws may not allow limitations on implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the above disclaimers, exclusions, or limitations may not apply to you, and you might have additional rights.
For the purposes of this Section, “ ALDO” shall include ALDO’s affiliates and ALDO’s and its affiliates’ respective directors, officers, employees, agents, mandataries and contractors.
This Section shall survive the termination or expiry of this Agreement.
12. Governing law and jurisdiction

The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.
13. Dispute resolution; injunctive relief
It is important that you read this entire section carefully. This section provides for resolution of disputes through final and binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury.
Any dispute, difference, controversy or claim between us or by either of us against the other or the employees, agents, mandataries, officers, directors, successors, assigns or affiliates of the other, arising out of, relating to, or having any connection with, the present Agreement (whether contractual or extra-contractual, in contract or tort, pursuant to statute or regulation, or otherwise, and whether pre-existing, present or future), including any question regarding its negotiation, formation, existence, validity, performance, effects, interpretation, breach, resolution or annulment and further including the applicability or scope of this arbitration clause (including the National Arbitration Forum's Code of Procedure discussed below) (hereinafter collectively referred to as “ Claims” and each, individually, as a “ Claim”) shall be referred to and finally resolved by binding arbitration, to the exclusion of courts of law, before or under the rules of the National Arbitration Forum under the Code of Procedure then in effect and any specific procedures for the resolution of small claims and/or consumer disputes then in effect (which you may obtain at www.arbitration-forum.com or by mail at P.O. Box 50191, Minneapolis, MN 55405), which Code of Procedure, as in effect or replaced from time to time, is incorporated into and forms an integral part of this Agreement.
However, before you submit a Claim for arbitration, you must first contact our customer service representatives at 1-888-818-2536, and give us an opportunity to resolve the dispute. Similarly, before ALDO takes a dispute to arbitration, we must first attempt to resolve it by contacting you. If the dispute cannot be satisfactorily resolved within sixty (60) days from the date you or ALDO is notified by the other of a dispute, then either party may then initiate the arbitration process as provided in Schedule «A» below.
For greater certainty, no recourse may be made by either party to any court or tribunal, whether federal or provincial, in respect of any matter whatsoever relating to this Agreement including, without limitation, any Claim, any arbitration initiated to resolve a Claim, and any arbitration award made in relation to a Claim, except as expressly permitted in this Agreement or by law. Any award rendered pursuant to the arbitration shall be final and binding on each of the parties and no appeal shall lie from such award. Such award may be rendered enforceable and executory by any court having jurisdiction over the person or the property of the person against whom enforcement of the award is sought.
No claim may be joined with another lawsuit, or in an arbitration with a dispute of any other person, or resolved on a class-wide basis. The parties expressly agree that any claim that is arbitrated pursuant to this agreement shall not be consolidated with any other arbitral proceeding for any reason. The arbitrator may not award damages that are barred by this agreement and may not award exemplary or punitive damages or attorneys' fees. You and aldo both waive any claims for an award of damages that are excluded under this agreement.
Injunctive Relief and Provisional Relief
Notwithstanding the provisions in this Section 13, the National Arbitration Forum's Code of Procedure or any other provision of this Agreement, ALDO shall have the right to seek and obtain any injunctive, provisional or interim relief from any court of competent jurisdiction to protect its trade-mark or other intellectual property rights or confidential information or to preserve the status quo pending arbitration.
14. Export laws
Products sold or delivered under this Agreement shall be subject to export control laws and regulations of Canada. You agree to comply at all times with all such laws and regulations.

The headings of this Agreement are inserted for convenience of reference only and do not affect the construction or interpretation of this Agreement.
16. No assignment
You may not assign your rights or obligations under this Agreement without the express written consent of ALDO.
This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon each of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
The provisions of this Agreement shall be deemed severable. In the event that any provision of this Agreement is determined to be unenforceable or invalid, such provision shall nonetheless be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
19. Entire agreement
This Agreement, together with all other agreements, terms or conditions incorporated or referred to herein constitute the entire agreement between you and ALDO relating to the subject matter hereof, the use of this website and any transactions conducted on or from this website, and supersede any prior understandings or agreements (whether electronic, oral or written) regarding the subject matter hereof, and may not be amended or modified except in writing, or by ALDO making such amendments or modifications available to it pursuant to this Agreement.
20. No waiver
The failure of ALDO to enforce any provision of this Agreement or to respond to a breach by you or any third party of this Agreement shall not in any way waive the right of ALDO to subsequently enforce any of the terms and conditions contained herein or to act with respect to similar breaches.
21. English language
You expressly agree that this Agreement and all ancillary documents be drafted solely in English; Vous consentez expressément à ce que cette entente et tous les documents y afférents soient rédigées en anglais seulement.
ALDO Ethical Sourcing Policy
ALDO wants to ensure that every business decision in which we are involved promotes social welfare in the countries where we do business.
Our Code of Ethics and our Supplier Partnership Manual specify the minimum requirements by which all of our suppliers and their own suppliers must abide, including employment practices, legal requirements, health and safety standards and environmental protection laws and regulations. Also, our Code of Ethics expressly prohibits the use of child or forced labour and any forms of coercion, abuse or harassment.
ALDO conducts audits of our suppliers based on the conditions outlined in our Code of Ethics and our Supplier Partnership Manual. These verifications take the form of announced and unannounced on-site inspections as well as on-site and off-site discussions with workers conducted by independent monitoring firms. These audits are performed regularly and any non-compliance is detailed in a Corrective Action Plan Report. In the event resolution is not completed within the agreed upon time frame or is not possible, ALDO has the right to choose to terminate the business relationship with the non-compliant supplier.
ALDO’s Global Sourcing and Social Compliance teams combine efforts to develop an approach that goes deeper into our supply chain. ALDO specifies in our Code of Ethics that manufacturing partners must associate with suppliers that comply with legal requirements in any country in which their business is conducted and which meet or exceed ALDO’s minimum standards.
ALDO’s Global Sourcing and Social Compliance teams are trained on the provisions of ALDO’s Code of Ethics and use their visits to factories and supplier facilities as one part of our monitoring and verification programs. They have been trained to report questionable behaviours, including slavery and human trafficking, to management for follow-up and action.
ALDO has undertaken these efforts to verify our supply chain and to ensure that our suppliers provide a safe and healthy working environment to all of their employees.
