12.1.2 The right to request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

12.1.4 The right to object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms.

In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which over ride your rights and freedoms.

Delivery of the Goods is to be completed within an agreed timescale with You. The Goods shall remain in Our beneficial ownership until full payment for the goods has been received. The risk in the goods, however, shall pass to You upon delivery.

7. Under Distance Contracts

We will arrange and agree a delivery to Your fixed place of residence or place of employment. We may require proof of address to be provided before a delivery is arranged and proof of identity will be required at the point of delivery.

9. Transfer of Deposit

Not withstanding Your rights defined by clause 4 if You fail to pay and take delivery of the Goods within 7 days of notification that the Goods are available for delivery We shall be at liberty to treat the contract as repudiated by You. We shall then be entitled to dispose of the Goods and reserve the right to offset and recover from You, by way of damages, any loss or expense including storage and depreciation costs which We may suffer or incur as a result of Your default. These costs will typically be £50 per day up to a maximum in line with Your initial deposit amount paid. The deposit can however be transferred by You in full to another vehicle on Your request at any time within 90 calendar days from the point at which this contract is repudiated.

10. Administration Fees

We will charge an Administration Fee for each vehicle, the amount of which will be clearly presented and is in addition to the purchase price of the vehicle. The fee covers all costs associated with administration and paperwork including sending V5 documentation to the DVLA, plus We will provide You with a HPI report on Your new vehicle for Your retention. The vehicle administration fee is non-refundable.

11. Part Exchange / Our Used Vehicle Purchases from You

Where We agree to allow part of the price of the Goods to be paid by You delivering a used vehicle to Us, such used vehicle shall be collected by Us and accepted upon the following conditions:

a. That, after examination of Your vehicle and inspection of the accompanying documentation at the time of any collection, it shall be collected in the same condition and within 250 miles on the odometer as and when an agreement was made as to a valuation of its allowance by Us. We reserve the right to revalue Your vehicle if You fail to adhere to this requirement. The order and any allowance in respect of a used motor vehicle offered by You in Part Exchange is subject to acceptance and confirmation in writing by Us.

b. That where the used vehicle is the subject of a Secured Finance agreement We shall be entitled to make any such payment to the Finance Company and will, with the consent of that Company, finally discharge such agreement and the allowance shall be reduced by the amounts so paid.

c. You will disclose to Us whether the used vehicle is subject to an existing Secured Finance agreement, if this is not disclosed to Us and later becomes apparent You will be liable to repay to Us any amounts required to be paid by Us to the Finance Company to discharge such agreement. We will conduct our own checks using industry standard ownership verifications to seek confirmation of any Finance Interest placed on the vehicle, however this does not waive Your disclosure obligations under this agreement.

d. If this agreement is cancelled after Your used vehicle has been collected by Us, We later may cancel the agreement to purchase Your used vehicle, provided that, if We have before cancellation sold or thereafter sell the used vehicle You shall be entitled to the profit or shall bear the loss (as the case may be) on the resale of Your used vehicle (in calculating this profit or loss Our reasonable selling expenses shall be taken into account).

e. If a cancellation is invoked under this agreement and the amount paid to the Finance Company under clause 11(b) or 11(c) as the case may be, exceeds the value agreed in part exchange of the vehicle, You are liable to Us for the difference between these amounts with the payment needing to be made within 30 days of You sending notice to cancel this agreement either under clauses 13 and 15 or in line with Your statutory rights.

f. That if the Goods to be delivered by Us through no default on the part of Us shall not be delivered to You within 30 days after the date of Your order or agreed expected delivery date, the allowance on the said used vehicle shall be subject to a reduction by an amount not exceeding 2½% for each completed period of 30 days from the expiry of the first mentioned 30 days to the date of delivery to You of the Goods.

12. Price Match Promise

If You see a similar car at a VAT registered professional motor dealer either before You make your purchase from Us or within 48 hours after purchasing a vehicle from Us at a lower price We will match that price. This is subject to Our discretion and the following conditions;

a. The alternative vehicle must be the same age (as determined by the year denoted on the vehicle registration number i.e “15” plate).

b. The alternative vehicle must have the same Specification as the Autosave vehicle. Examples where the Specification differs may be considered at the discretion of Autosave if the difference in Specification of the alternative Vehicle and the Autosave vehicle does not have a material impact on its market value at the time of comparison.

c. The alternative vehicle must have the same (within 1,000 miles) or lower mileage than the Autosave vehicle. The mileage must be warranted.

d. You must have a written quote from a VAT registered professional motor dealer, trading as a limited company from permanent premises within a 40 mile radius of Your home address. The quote must be dated within 48 hours either prior to or after Your purchase, or an Autosave representative must be able to view the vehicle 'live' on a dealer website and the alternative vehicle must be available for immediate purchase and physically in the location within 40 miles of Your home address.

e. The price match does not apply in cases where the comparative vehicle is being offered at a CAP clean price.  A cap clean price is the industry benchmark for used car disposal values and is not a guide for retail pricing. 

13. 14 Day Exchange Policy

In accordance with Consumer Contract Regulations You will have the benefit of a 14 Day Exchange Policy on the purchase of Your Goods. The 14 Days commence from the day after the date on which delivery takes place and is inclusive of weekends and bank holidays. The 14 Day Exchange Policy is in addition to and does not affect Your statutory consumer rights. It should not be considered as an alternative to Your short term right to reject a vehicle due to a breach of Your core rights at the point of purchase under Your statutory consumer rights. To serve notice of Your intention to invoke this exchange please see clause 15 and it is subject to the following conditions;

a. There is a duty of care for You to return the Goods in a condition commensurate with that at the time of delivery. We will inspect the goods at the time of return and We reserve the right, entirely at Our own discretion, to charge You any amounts required to return the goods to their condition at the time of delivery.

b. All vehicles returned will be subject to a returns fee of £149 which represents the non-refundable administration fee.

c. A usage charge will be applied relating to the mileage that the vehicle has been driven under Your ownership, representing the increase in miles during the period between delivery of the vehicle to You and the subsequent return of the vehicle, as evidenced by the odometer at the time of return and the original mileage as documented at the point of delivery. The mileage charge will be:

Miles Driven Usage Charge
First 100 miles (0 - 100) No charge
Over 100 miles (101 or more) £50 plus £2 per each additional mile
For illustration, a vehicle driven 100 miles will incur no usage charge. A vehicle driven 110 miles would incur a usage charge of £70 (£50 plus £2 x 10 miles).

d. If We agree to recover the vehicle We reserve the right entirely at Our own discretion to charge a collection fee that will reflect Our costs of collection from Our closest Place of Business to Your place of residence. These charges will also be subject to VAT.

e. We will charge You a delivery fee for the replacement vehicle in line with clauses 6, 7 and 8

f. All documentation provided with the Goods at time of delivery is returned at the same time as the Goods. If You fail to do so We will request security is provided.

g. An agreed location, date and time for a return or collection of a vehicle will be made in writing between You and Us which will be no more than five (5) days from the notification by You of the cancellation. If You fail to return the goods at the agreed time We reserve the right to charge a failed appointment charge at Our discretion.

h. To facilitate the Exchange Policy, We will identify with You a suitable vehicle for You to exchange Your vehicle for.

i. Once a suitable replacement vehicle has been selected We will transfer to the replacement vehicle any amounts due after adjusting for the returns fee, usage charges or other charges as a deposit on Your replacement vehicle.

j. You will be liable for any shortfall between the deposit under clause 13(i) and purchase price for the replacement vehicle. Where Your deposit under clause 13(i) exceeds the purchase price for Your replacement vehicle We will refund to You the difference.

k. We will cancel any additional products You have purchased with Your exchanged vehicle and transfer them to Your replacement vehicle where this is relevant. Where this is not relevant We will cancel the products, and refund You any amounts in line with the relevant terms of those products.

l. Where You have purchased Paint Protection for your exchanged vehicle no refund will be made.

m. If Your exchanged vehicle was purchased using a line of credit organised by Us then We will work with Your lender to secure a new line of credit to fund Your replacement vehicle. In circumstances where We cannot secure a line of credit for Your replacement vehicle then the 14 Day Exchange Policy will be deemed as void.

n. Where You have successfully invoked the 14 Day Exchange policy, Your replacement vehicle will be exempt from this policy as described in these terms under section 13.

14. Distance Contracts - Finance

Should Your used vehicle be purchased by a Secured Funding or Unsecured Funding method, then You have the additional right to cancel the finance agreement for 14 calendar days commencing from the day following the date of the delivery of Your Goods. However Your contract with Us is unaffected.

15. Notices and Complaints

In order to serve notice to Us to invoke Your rights to return Your Goods, make a complaint or any other formal correspondence this needs to be put in writing and sent via recorded delivery for the attention of Customer Experience Manager at the address shown on Your invoice or alternatively via email to helpline@Autosave.co.uk.

16. Pricing and Mileage Errors

Whilst We try to ensure that all the prices and mileages shown on the Autosave website and other websites We may use as marketing channels are accurate, errors may occur. If We discover a material error in the price or mileage of the goods You have ordered We will inform You as soon as reasonably possible (a material error in mileage will exclude any mileages added to a vehicle due to test drives, relocation or delivery where appropriate, being typically less than 500 miles). You will then be given the option of re-confirming Your order at the correct price or cancelling Your order with a full refund of any deposit made. If We are unable to contact You using the contact details You provided during the order process, We will treat the order as cancelled and notify You by email. If You decide to cancel Your order after We have informed You of a pricing error and You have already paid for the Goods, We will give You a full refund as soon as reasonably possible (and in any event within thirty (30) days of cancellation).

17. Description Errors

Autosave has made every effort to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in the website and other media however:

a. Manufacturers are constantly seeking ways to improve the specification, design and production of their vehicles and alterations take place continually. Whilst every effort is made by Us to produce up to date product descriptions and specifications, the website and other media should not be regarded as an infallible guide to vehicle products and services, nor does it constitute an offer for the sale of any particular vehicle. Autosave are not agents of any manufacturer and have absolutely no authority to bind the manufacturers by any express or implied undertaking or representation. Any references to speed or performance should not be taken as an encouragement to drive either dangerously or at speeds in excess of national limits.

b. All fuel economy figures are in accordance with Directive 93/116/EC. They have been calculated using the same test cycle as used for official exhaust emission classification. They cannot be compared with the previous steady speed/urban figures and are more representative of actual on-road fuel consumption. Under normal use the vehicles actual fuel consumption figures may differ from those achieved through the test procedure, depending on driving technique, road and traffic conditions, environmental factors, and vehicle condition.

c. We do not guarantee that use of the website will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that the website and its servers are free of computer viruses or bugs and strongly recommend that all users ensure that they protect their equipment with the use of firewalls and virus checkers.

Other

18. The terms and conditions above do not abrogate or derogate from the rights afforded to You by the CRA, Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, Distance Marketing Regulations 2004, Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations (2008) and all other statutory rights.

19. Car Shops Limited T/A Autosave, is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) for consumer credit activities. Our Firm Registration Number (FRN) is 447727. Car Shops Limited is also an Appointed Representative of Sytner Group Limited, which is authorised and regulated by the FCA for Insurance Mediation Activities, under FRN 310540

20. Jurisdiction

Any dispute regarding this agreement will be governed by English Law and will be subject to the jurisdiction of the Courts of England and Wales.
