7.4 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:
|Your Contract||End of the cancellation period|

|Your Contract is for Goods which are delivered in instalments on separate days.||The end date is 28 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the Goods or the last of the separate Goods ordered. |
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the first instalment of your Goods on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate item of your Goods on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate Goods at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 12 February.

7.6 If you cancel your Contract with Halfords, Halfords will:
(a) refund you the price you paid for the Goods.

(b) refund any delivery costs you have paid.

5. Your rights
Under the terms of data protection legislation, you have the following rights as a result of using this website:
5.1 Right to be informed
This Privacy Statement, together with our Cookies Policy, fulfils our obligation to tell you about the ways in which we use your information as a result of you using this website.
5.2 Right to access
You have the right to ask us, in writing, for a copy of any personal data that we hold about you. This is known as a "Subject Access Request". Except in exceptional circumstances (which we would discuss and agree with you in advance), you can obtain this information at no cost. We will send you a copy of the information within 30 days of your request.

5.8 Rights related to automated decision-making
In order that we can understand your interests and preferences - and deliver communications that will be most of interest to you, where you have consented to receive these - we employ profiling techniques (which include automated decision-making) based upon the information that you have provided to us, as well as your purchasing history and engagement with us. We do not believe that these processes have any potential to significantly or negatively affect you i.e. they will not lead to any form of discrimination against you or impact your legal rights.
Examples of how we use profiling are as follows:
Where we hold a customer's details, we will also seek to ensure that, as far as possible, we maintain a single composite record of their interactions with us, which may require us to match their different activities. Where customers have indicated that they do not want us to us their data for receiving communications (other than those deemed legitimate), we will use this information purely for anonymised internal analytics and reporting, for example, looking at sales trends which does not identify individual customers.
If you do not want us to undertake profiling or matching, you may either:
6. Data privacy and security
At Halfords, we maintain a comprehensive data management work programme, which includes processes for ensuring that data protection is a key consideration of all new and existing IT systems that hold customers' personal data. Where any concerns, risks or issues are identified, we conduct relevant impact assessments in order to determine any actions that are necessary to ensure optimum privacy.
We also maintain an active information security work programme which seeks to protect the availability, confidentiality and integrity of all physical and information assets. Specifically, this helps us to:
We recognise that the security of data and transactions on this website is of primary importance. We therefore ensure that all connections to secure parts of the website (such as when you login) are encrypted and authenticated using strong protocols, key exchanges and ciphers.

In all situations, your permission will be sought before geo-tracking is used, and then, it is only used to personalise your experience.

Halfords supplies many chemical-based products online, via our catalogue and in-store. All retailers selling chemical products are obliged to comply with European directives by providing key health and safety information for this type of product. Several key European Directives/Regulations exist governing the supply of chemical products with regard to labelling, packaging and marketing and these regulations also require health and safety documentation to be made readily available.
The Regulations themselves are designed to protect both the environment and human health, and as a responsible supplier Halfords naturally takes its obligations very seriously and ensures it complies and enforces these regulations.
Halfords Health and Safety information for chemical products provides access to the latest up-to-date label information, Safety Data Sheets and Detergent Ingredient Data sheets.
To access further information, follow the link above, then select ’Name’ for the search criteria in the left-hand drop-down box, and in the box underneath, enter either the full name of your product if know, e.g. Halfords 5W30 VW Fully Synthetic Oil, or a generic name, e.g. oil, click ’Search’, and all the products we have information on will be displayed in the box to the right.
