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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.

These legal rights are not affected by, and are in addition to, anything in these Terms (including the following warranty that Specialized additionally and separately provides).

We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation, but this will not affect Customer's rights or our obligations under these Terms.
Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
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.
