  7. Liability and Guarantee

If we fail to comply with these Conditions, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these Conditions or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it is an obvious consequence of our breach or if it was contemplated by you and us at the time we entered into this Contract.

    7.2. Except where expressly stated otherwise and agreed in writing with you, we only supply the Pre-Pedalled Bikes for domestic and private use. You agree not to use the Pre-Pedalled Bikes for any commercial, business or resale purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

    (a) death or personal injury caused by our negligence;

    (b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;

    (c) any breach of the terms implied by section 9 to 11, or 17 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015; and

    (d) defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

    7.4. All Pre-Pedalled Bikes come with a 12-month guarantee. Therefore, subject to the exclusions set out at 7.5 – 7.7 below, we will repair any defects with the Pre-Pedalled Bikes for free for a period of up to 12 months from the date of purchase by you.

    7.5. The warranty described at 7.4 is subject to the following exclusions:

    (a) wear and tear - it is important to understand that all bike parts are subject to general wear and tear, frames and forks included. This is where a bike part has simply done what was expected of it and has worn out or failed through general use. Some of the more common parts subject to general wear and tear are usually the drivetrain, brakes, tyres and battery; and

    (b) Failure of components caused by misuse, lack of servicing and/or care.

    7.6. Your warranty will be void if the Pre-Pedalled Bike is modified or altered in a way that affects the geometry of it and/or puts unnecessary stress on the bike and/or renders the Pre-Pedalled Bike non-compliant with the Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles Regulations 1983, as amended by the Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles (amendment) Regulations 2015 or any equivalent or replacement law or regulation.

    7.7. This warranty applies only to Pre-Pedalled Bikes used under normal riding conditions. The components specified on all terrain cycles are guaranteed for normal off-road use. However, no cycles sold by Halfords are guaranteed to withstand stunt riding, jumping, trials riding, misuse, accidents, lack of maintenance, abuse, use in competition or commercial use (e.g. hire). This guarantee does not affect your statutory rights.

  8. Events Outside Our Control

    We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by an Event Outside Our Control. An Event Outside Our Control means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.

    11.4. If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Conditions, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

    11.5. These Terms are governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction.
