Please read and check your Order before placing. You may only purchase Goods from us if you meet any legal age requirement necessary for the acquisition of the same.
1.2. The Order shall only be deemed accepted by us when you have paid for the Goods, monies received by us and the Goods have been dispatched. Any email, order confirmation or other electronic acknowledgement by us of receipt of an Order does not constitute legal acceptance by us of your Order. We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an email confirming that the Goods have been dispatched ('Dispatch Confirmation'). The Contract between us is formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
1.3. All Orders placed via the Website are subject to stock availability. In the unlikely event that you are able to place an Order for an item that is not available from stock, we will contact you as soon as possible. Depending on the time period for stock to arrive you may be given the option to wait for your items or your Order will be cancelled. In these circumstances, upon cancellation, you will be refunded in full.
1.4. We only accept Orders originating from and for delivery to UK addresses.
1.5. The only language in which the Contract can be concluded is English.

4.1. ASA Cycles accepts payment by most major credit or debit cards registered at UK addresses, or by Paypal registered to UK addresses.
4.2. Please ensure that the expiry date of your credit or debit card is after the anticipated despatch date of your Order. Payment will be debited from your account just before the despatch of your Goods, and if your payment card has expired, we will be unable to take payment and fulfil your Order.
4.3. When an Order is placed a pre-authorisation will be made against your account. Payment is not taken at this time. ASA Cycles will endeavour to process any payments at the time of dispatch.

A third party may also be instructed to complete these checks. By ordering from the Website you consent to such checks being made. We may need to contact you by letter, telephone or email to verify details before we are able to process and dispatch your Order or we may be unable to accept your Order.

5. DELIVERY OF GOODS
5.1. We can only deliver to addresses within the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, we are unable to deliver to non-UK destinations, including the Republic of Ireland, the Channel Islands and BFPO addresses at this time. Please contact us if you require further details.
5.2. For deliveries to non-mainland UK addresses and certain remote locations e.g. Scottish Isles, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands, there may be an additional surcharge imposed by our couriers and a slightly longer delivery lead-time.
5.3. The delivery charge for each item is listed on the product detail page. When you add products to your shopping basket and have chosen the delivery option the appropriate charge will be added automatically. All delivery charges will be shown clearly throughout the checkout process.
5.4. We may deliver the Goods by instalments, which shall be invoiced and paid for separately. Each instalment shall constitute a separate Contract. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment shall not entitle the Customer to cancel any other instalment.
5.5 Any dates quoted for delivery are approximate only and we cannot be held liable for any costs incurred if delivery is delayed.
5.5.1. Please be aware that Royal Mail First Class postal service can take up to 7 days. This is under the terms of Royal Mail and is out of our control.
5.5.2. 3rd Party couriers can deliver direct delivery orders between the hours of 7am and 9pm.
5.6. Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we deliver the Goods to the delivery address given in the Order.
5.7. The Goods will be your responsibility from the time of delivery.
5.8. Where the courier is unable to deliver the Goods, they will either attempt to deliver to a neighbour, attempt to redeliver the following day, leave a card for you to rearrange a suitable time for redelivery or leave the parcel at your local Post Office for you to collect.
5.9. We shall have no liability for any delay in delivery of the Goods, or failure to deliver the Goods, where the delay or failure is caused either by an Event Outside Our Control or the Customer's failure to provide us with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.
5.10 If we miss our estimated delivery deadline for the Goods or, in the absence of any estimate being given the date 30 days after the Dispatch Confirmation, you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:
(a) we have refused to deliver the Goods;
(b) delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
(c) you told us before we accepted your Order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
5.11 If you do not wish to cancel your Order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 5.10 you can give us a new deadline for delivery which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your Order if we do not meet the new deadline.
5.12 If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery you can do so for just some of the Goods or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Goods have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your Order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Goods and their delivery.
6. RETURNS & EXCHANGES
6.1. You may cancel your order for all Goods at any time up to the end of the 28th day from the date you receive the ordered Goods. You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your order for the Goods nor will you have to pay any penalty.
6.2. In order to return your unwanted Goods you should either i) bring your Goods and proof of purchase back to ASA Cycles store, or ii) follow our returns and cancellation procedure as detailed on the return’s form that is included with your order, before the end of the 28th day from the date you receive the ordered Goods
6.3. Unless the Goods being returned are faulty, they must be returned in a saleable condition. All bikes and accessories must be treated with respect until you are certain you are keeping them. ASA Cycles shall be entitled to refuse a return in the event that the Goods are returned in an unsaleable condition.
6.4. If you have received the Goods before you cancel your order then you must send the Goods back to us at your own cost and risk. If you cancel your order but we have already processed the Goods for delivery, you must not unpack the Goods when they are received by you and you must send the Goods back to us at your own cost and risk as soon as possible.
6.5. Once you have notified us that you are returning the Goods, any sum debited to ASA Cycles from your debit or credit card will be re-credited to your account as soon as possible, and in any event within 14 days of your return/cancellation request PROVIDED THAT the Goods in question are returned by you, and received by us, in the condition they were in when delivered to you. Please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Goods as a result of your handling of the Goods.
6.6. You are responsible for the cost of returning any non-faulty Goods to ASA Cycles. If you do not return the Goods delivered to you by the delivery service provider or do not pay the costs of delivery, we shall be entitled to deduct the direct costs of recovering the Goods from the amount to be re-credited to you.
6.7. Similarly, any amounts debited from your debit or credit card in respect of delivery charges payable to the third party delivery contractors shall be re-credited to your account as soon as possible by the relevant delivery contractor or by us on their behalf. 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.
6.8. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Goods while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
