1.2. The Order shall only be deemed accepted by Halfords when you have paid for the goods, monies received by Halfords and the goods have been dispatched. Any email, order confirmation or other electronic acknowledgement by us of receipt of an order does not constitute legal acceptance by Halfords of your order.

In the unlikely event that you are able to place an Order for an item that is not available from stock, Halfords will contact you as soon as possible. You will have the option to wait until the items are available from stock or to cancel your Order. In these circumstances, upon cancellation, you will be refunded in full.
1.4. Halfords only accepts Orders originating from and for delivery to UK addresses.
1.5. The only language in which the Contract can be concluded is English.
1.6. Halfords will retain details of your Order in our database and these details can be made available to you on request. Please contact our Customer Service team.

2.5. In the event that there are any errors regarding price or description, we reserve the right to correct that price or description and notify you accordingly.

Similarly, Halfords stores are under no obligation to honour any online price or promotion that differs from the in-store price.

We regret that we are unable to accept payment online by cheque, cash, Halfords Gift Vouchers, Halfords Gift Cards, High Street Vouchers, Purchase Orders or any other form of payment.
4.2. Please ensure that the expiry date of your credit or debit card is after the anticipated despatch date of your Order. Payment will be debited from your account just before the despatch of your goods, and if your payment card has expired, we will be unable to take payment and fulfil your Order.
4.3. Halfords will endeavour to process any payments at the time of dispatch. On the rare occasion that this process is not successful, we will re-process accordingly.

4.4. All credit and debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
4.5. In addition, to prevent fraudulent use of credit and debit cards, Halfords will validate the names, addresses and other information supplied during the Order process against commercially available records (e.g. Electoral Roll data, Credit Reference Services). A third party may also be instructed to complete these checks. By ordering from the Website you consent to such checks being made. We may need to contact you by letter, telephone or email to verify details before we are able to process and dispatch your Order or we may be unable to accept your Order. Any information given may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of the information. All information provided will be treated in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

5.10. Halfords shall have no liability for any delay in delivery of the Goods, or failure to deliver the Goods, where the delay or failure is caused either by a Force Majeure Event or the Customer's failure to provide Halfords with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.
6. Refunds and Returns
6.1. If you decide that you do not want any item that we have delivered, we are happy to offer you an exchange or refund within 28 days of delivery, provided that it is returned to us in its original and unused condition (including in its original packaging), along with the wrapping and delivery note (as proof of purchase).

6.4. You may send returns back to us via which ever method you choose, however we do recommend using a trackable service and obtaining proof of postage. When sending returns back to us please make sure they are securely packaged, as Halfords cannot be responsible for lost or damaged returns. If you would like Halfords to collect the goods, there will be a charge of £7.00 for this service.
6.5. We will endeavour to process refunds as soon as possible, but will refund the account within 30 days

Please contact our Customer Services Team if you wish to exercise this right.

9. Force Majeure
Neither party shall be liable for any failure or delay in performing its obligations under the Contract where such failure or delay is caused by a Force Majeure Event. A Force Majeure Event means any event beyond a party's reasonable control, which by its nature could not have been foreseen, or, if it could have been foreseen, was unavoidable, including strikes, lock-outs or other industrial disputes (whether involving its own workforce or a third party's), failure of energy sources or transport network, acts of God, war, riot, fires, floods, storms, earthquakes, epidemics or similar events, natural disasters or extreme adverse weather conditions, or default of suppliers or subcontractors.

If any invalid, unenforceable or illegal provision of the Contract would be valid, enforceable and legal if some part of it were deleted, the provision shall apply with the minimum modification necessary to make it legal, valid and enforceable.
A waiver of any right or remedy under the Contract is only effective if given in writing and shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. No failure or delay by a party to exercise any right or remedy provided under the Contract or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it preclude or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall preclude or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.
14. Third party rights
