Changes to the Terms

Products

The images of the Products on our Website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the Products. Your Products may vary slightly from those images. 

Orders

Customer can place an order by following the order process on the Website, and will be able to identify and correcting any input errors as part of that. All orders placed by Customer are subject to Specialized’s acceptance. This means that Specialized may refuse to accept or may cancel any order, whether or not the order has been confirmed, for any or no reason. We will also inform Customer by email as soon as possible if the Product Customer has ordered is not available and we will not process Customer's order.

Price

 All prices stated on the website are subject to change, but changes will not affect any confirmed order. The Website contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our Website may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products, we will inform Customer of this error and we will give Customer the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling the order. We will not process a Customer order until we have Customer's instructions. If we are unable to contact Customer using the contact details provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify Customer in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by Customer as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to Customer at the incorrect (lower) price.

VAT

The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of an order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT Customer pays, unless Customer has already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.

Payment

 If Customer chooses to purchase a Product, Customer must designate and provide information about a preferred payment method (e.g., credit card, online payment service or any other payment method made available by Specialized). All orders must be paid in full prior to shipment. Payment information is submitted by Customer upon the placement of any order and fulfillment and shipping of the order is subject to verification of payment information and availability of funds. Customer agrees to pay all fees and other charges incurred in connection with Customer's username and password for any Specialized Website account 

Delivery

We do not deliver to addresses outside of the UK. All other delivery restrictions, and all delivery charges, will be made known to Customer as part of the order process. Ownership of, and responsibility for, the Products shall pass to Customer upon delivery of the Products. Any timeframe provided by Specialized is a good faith estimate of the expected delivery date. Specialized will use commercially reasonable efforts to fill Customer’s orders within the time stated.

Cancellation rights

If Customer is a consumer, Customer has the right to cancel an order for any Product during the period from when the order has been placed until the end of 14 days starting from the day after Customer receives the Products (or if Customer has ordered multiple Products, the day after Customer receives the last Product). To cancel an order, please contact us in writing to tell us by sending an email to [email protected] or by sending a letter to us at: Specialized (UK) Ltd.29 Barwell Business Park, Leatherhead Road, Chessington, KT9 2NY or by contacting us in another appropriate way. Customer may use the model cancellation form that we make available on the Website, but it is not mandatory. Customer may wish to keep a copy of a cancellation notification for their own records. Customer's cancellation is effective from the date Customer sent it, as long as Customer sent it during the cancellation period. If Customer exercises the right to cancel, Customer will receive a refund of the price paid for the Products [and any applicable delivery charges Customer paid for]. Specialized will process the refund due to Customer as soon as possible and, in any case within 14 days from the day Specialized receives the Products back, or Customer providing evidence that they have returned the Product. We will pay the costs of return if you are exercising your right to cancel. For more information on how to arrange a return, please visit our returns page. Specialized will make the refund using the same means of payment as was used for the initial purchase, unless Customer expressly agrees otherwise, and Customer will not incur any fees for receiving that refund. We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery charges) to reflect any reduction in the value of Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.

Product Changes

 Specialized may make any change in the design of or specifications for, or in the way it manufactures or produces any Product if such changes are necessary or desirable to improve the safety or performance of such Product. Further, Specialized may furnish suitable substitute Products or components for Products or components which are unobtainable by Specialized because of any priorities, rules, regulations or the like established by governmental authorities or agencies, or due to price changes or the non-availability of materials or components from suppliers. Customer may not make any changes in the designs or specifications for the Products unless Specialized approves of such changes in writing, in which event Specialized may impose additional charges to implement such changes.

Waiver

 If Specialized fails to insist that Customer performs any obligation under these Terms, or if Specialized does not enforce its rights against Customer, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that Specialized has waived its rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If Specialized does waive a default by you, Specialized will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that Specialized will automatically waive any later default by you. 

Klarna Services Terms

 

These terms apply between Klarna Bank AB (publ) (“Klarna”) and you when you use Klarna’s services and features as described in these terms (the “Services”). You sign up for the Services by accepting these terms.

Description of the Services

For Klarna, shopping is not just about finding great stuff and paying for them - it is also about enjoying a great shopping experience at the store of your preference, a state of the art app, and many other things. Simply put, a smoooth user experience both before you have done your purchases and after you have done a purchase. These terms explain in more detail what this means. Please note that additional terms may apply to a specific payment method if you choose to make your payment by using one of the methods offered by Klarna.

 

1. Autofill and preferences

In order for you to have a smoooth and friction free shopping experience we will remember some information about you and use that information to autofill different forms with your information during your shopping. This will enable you to save time and focus on more important stuff than filling out the same information over and over again. Let us explain in more detail how this works.

 

Autofill of your contact information

We can help you to fill in  your contact information in two ways.

Autofill through input of limited information

While interacting with Klarna we may ask for information about you, such as name, address, telephone number, email, date of birth, or personal identification number. We will keep this information in our systems so that when you return to us or use our payment methods, you will only need to provide some of this information such as email and zip-code, or personal identification number (dependent on the country) in order for us to autofill the remaining fields with your other details.

Autofill through a Klarna cookie

An additional method we can use to autofill your information is by placing a Klarna-cookie on your device (computer, tablet, mobile phone, etc.). You may choose to store your details such as name, address, telephone number, email, date of birth, or personal identification number, and card details with Klarna. If you do so, we use the cookie to fetch those details from Klarna’s storage, and the cookie will help us to autofill them when you shop with Klarna.

By accepting these terms you give Klarna a consent to store this cookie on your device. For more information on our use of cookies see our Cookie Statement.

Disable autofill

If you don’t want to use the Autofill functionalities you can contact us and we will disable them. You can also disable them from the Klarna App or by adjusting your autofill settings during the purchase process. You can at any given time delete all cookies on your device, which deletes our cookie as well.

Autofill of other information

While interacting with Klarna you may also provide us with other information, such as for example card details. You may choose us to keep this information in our systems so that when you return to us we may autofill such information after we have identified you.

When you shop directly from the Klarna App we can also autofill your details on the site where you are shopping. This is enabled by you being logged in to the app and we know it is you that are shopping.

 

Preselected preferred payment methods

In order to make your shopping experience even smooother Klarna can, based on your previous purchases, pre-select the payment method that we believe to be your preferred way of paying. You may however also have access to other payment methods should you prefer to switch to another method than the one we pre-selected for you.
