Any such duties and taxes may vary in different territories. We are unable to advise you in relation to any import duties and taxes and we recommend you contact the local customs office at the delivery destination in this respect.

(b) is higher than the price stated on the Website, we will at our discretion either contact you for instructions prior to dispatching the Products or reject your order and notify you of such rejection by email.

We are under no obligation to provide Products to you at an incorrect lower price, even once we have sent an order acknowledgement email to you, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have been recognised by you as an error.

We will fulfill your order by the date and time set out in the order acknowledgement email or, if no date or time is specified, within a reasonable period from the date of the order acknowledgement email, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

(a) Obtained from a source other than the Website
(b) Damaged by abuse or negligence (exposure to chemicals, caustic substances, open flame, high heat, sharp object, etc.)

Cancellation

You have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep the Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of:
If the return falls outside of this period, or the Product is worn, damaged or not in its original packaging, Firepower cannot accept the returned Products and cannot give a refund in the case of:

(a) any made-to-measure, personalised or custom-made products (e.g. Products personalised using our iD personalisation service);
(b) any sealed Products which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons, if they are unsealed after you receive them (e.g. mouthguards, underwear, boxer shorts etc.); or
(c) any Products which become mixed inseparably with other Products after their delivery to you.

Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Acceptance Notice (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 below:

Your Contract

Your Contract is for a single Product (which is not delivered in installments on separate days).

End of the cancellation period

The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product.
Example: if we provide you with an Acceptance Notice on 1 January and you receive the Product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.

Or

Your Contract

Your Contract is for either of the following:

  • one Product which is delivered in installments on separate days.
  • multiple Products which are delivered on separate days.
End of the cancellation period

The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last installment of the Product or the last of the separate Products ordered.

Example: if we provide you with an Acceptance Notice on 1 January and you receive the first installment of your Product or the first of your separate Products on 10 January and the last installment or last separate Product on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all installments and any or all of the separate Products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.

To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to e-mail us at powerup[at]firepowersport.com. Please include details of your order to help us to identify it.

If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us.

For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or e-mail us before midnight on that day.

If you cancel your Contract we will:
(a) refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted at our premises. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the Products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount;
(b) [refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if we offer delivery of a Product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option; ]
(c) make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
i. if you have received the Product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us; or
ii. if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
(d) If you have returned the Product to us under this clause because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the Product to us.
(e) We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay.
(f) If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
i. then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract;
ii. unless the Product is faulty or not as described, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Product to us. If the Product is one which cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the Product to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery. If we have offered to collect the Product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.

Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Product that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Product that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

Liability

If we breach the Contract, we shall only be liable for losses which are a reasonably foreseeable consequence of such a breach. Losses are foreseeable where they could be contemplated by you and us at the time of entering into the Contract.

We are not responsible for:
(a) losses not caused by our breach;
(b) indirect losses which are a side effect of the main loss or damage and which are not reasonably foreseeable by you and us at the time of entering into the Contract, for example loss of profits or loss of opportunity; and/or
(c) failure to provide the Products or to meet any of our obligations under the Contract where such failure is due to events beyond our control.

Our aggregate liability to you in connection with each Contract shall not exceed the value of the Products ordered by you under that Contract.

Nothing in these terms seeks to exclude or limit our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence, fraud or any other liability which cannot by law be validly excluded or limited.

If you breach the Contract and we take no action against you, we will still be entitled to use our rights and remedies in any other situation where you breach the Contract. If any part of the Contract is disallowed or found to be ineffective by any court or regulator, the other provisions shall continue to apply.

We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under the Contract. Each Contract is personal to you and you may only transfer your rights or your obligations under a Contract to another person if we agree in writing. A Contract is not intended to give rights to anyone except you and us.

We will do our best to resolve any disputes over each Contract. If you wish to take court proceedings against us you must do so within the United Kingdom. The laws of England and Wales will apply.
