Our contract with you
- Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
- If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing, cancel your order and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified. Where your order contains multiple goods and one or more become unavailable for any if the above reasons, we will contact you separately by email to ask how you would like to proceed with your order.
- We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
- Our website is solely for the promotion of products within the UK (including Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man). Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from or deliver to addresses outside of this area.
- 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 a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
- The packaging of your product(s) may vary from that shown in images on our website.
Your rights to make changes
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see clause 8 - Your rights to end the contract).
Our rights to make changes
- The product may change to:
- reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
- implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat.

Providing the products
- The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.
- During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you. If the products are goods we will deliver them to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.
- If our supply of the product(s) is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
- If you have asked to collect the products from one of our Click & Collect remises (orders delivered, at your request, to one of our selected convenient locations, for your collection) premises, you can collect them from the store of your choice upon confirmation of delivery at any time during the working hours as stated on your nearest store details page here. Please note for our Click & Collect service you will need to bring photographic identification with you when collecting your order.
- If no one is available at your address to take delivery, our courier will inform you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.
- If you do not collect the products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 10.2 will apply.
- You have legal rights if we deliver any goods late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any goods then you may treat the contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
- we have refused to deliver the goods;
- delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
- you told us, before we accepted your order, and we agreed with you in writing, that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
- If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 7.7, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
- If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 7.7, you can cancel your order for any of the goods or reject goods that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those goods (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled goods and their delivery. If the goods have been delivered to you, you must either return them in person to where you bought them, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please contact us, please click here.
- A product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us or you or a courier organised by you collect it from us.
- You own a product which is goods once we have received payment in full.
- We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. We will contact you in writing to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 10.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
Your rights to end the contract
- Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
- If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 11;
- If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;
- If you have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 8.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods;
- In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 8.7.
- Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at 8.2.1 to 8.2.5 below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided. The reasons are:
- we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to
- we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
- there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; or,
- you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong (including because we have delivered late (see clause 7.7).
- For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
- Your rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 are that you have a 14 day period to change you mind and that you must pay costs incurred in returning the goods to us. Your right to a refund terminates when your warranty activates.
- You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
- products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes (e.g. earphones), once these have been unsealed after you receive them;
- sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these products are unsealed after you receive them; and
- any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
- If you have bought goods (for example, Mac, iPhone, iPod or iPad) you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receive the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.
- Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered and paid for. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.
- Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
How to end the contract with us (including if you have changed your mind)
- To end the contract with us, please let us know by contacting us.
- If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must either return the goods in person to where you bought them or post them back to us. If you wish to return the item by post, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your order reference and reason for return. We will then provide you with a Return Merchandise Authorisation (RMA) number and confirm the details of where the product(s) should be sent. Please not that all returns must be sent via a tracked delivery service, with the RMA reference. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
- We will pay the costs of return:
- if the products are faulty or misdescribed; or,
- In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
- We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
- If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
- We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop (e.g. including but not limited to, the device having been switched on and registered). If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
- The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. 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.
- We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:
- If the products are goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from 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. For information about how to return a product to us, see clause 9.2.
- In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind
- Please note that if product you are returning was purchased with a mobile/wireless service, this service is the responsibility of your service provider and will not be automatically cancelled when the product is returned to us.

- you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the products;
- you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or collect them from us; or,
- the product is no longer available.
- If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 10.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
- We may write to you to let you know that we are going to stop providing the product. We will let you know in advance of our stopping the supply of the product.

Summary of your key legal rights
This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.
If your product is goods, for example a laptop, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following:
up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.
up to six months: if your goods can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases.
up to six years: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.
See also clause 8.3.
See also Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013).
- If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must either return them in person to where you bought them, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Any cost incurred for the return of the goods will be at your own expense. If you wish to arrange for the product to be returned please contact us, our details can be found at the following link
Price and payment
- The price of the product (which includes VAT and/or IPT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
- If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
- It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
- We accept payment with:
- Visa, MasterCard, American Express and debit cards.
- In certain circumstances, third party payment gateways such as (but not limited to) PayPal, Apple Pay, Barclays Finance, Klarna.
- In cooperation with Klarna Bank AB (publ), Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden, we may offer you the following payment options. Payment is to be made to Klarna: Pay later, Slice it. Further information and Klarnas user terms you can find here. General information on Klarna you can find here. Your personal data is handled in accordance with applicable data protection law and in accordance with the information in Klarnas privacy statement.
- If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
- We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
- We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products as summarised at clause 11.2 and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
- We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
How we may use your personal information
- to supply the products to you;
- to process your payment for the products; and
- if you agreed to this during the order process, to give you information about similar products that we provide, (and you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us).
- We will only give your personal information to third parties where the law either requires or allows us to do so.
Other important terms
- We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation.
- Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as explained in clause 15.2 in respect of our guarantee. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
- If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
- Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
- Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
- Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact the alternative dispute resolution provider we use. You can submit a complaint to ADR Group Limited via their website at www.adrgroup.co.uk. In addition, please note that disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform.
Terms and conditions for service and repair
- These Terms and Conditions must be read in conjunction with the Company’s Standard Terms & Conditions of sale, which take precedence over terms herein, and these Service & Repair terms & conditions contain contractual terms that are defined therein.
- These terms are the terms and conditions on which we (being “we”, the “Company” - Compu b Limited) supply service & repair services to our consumer customers (being “you” or the “Customer”).
- Contact. If we have to contact you, we will do so by telephone, text or SMS message, or by writing to you at the address or the email address you provided to us when you submitted your device for repair.
- "Writing" includes emails. For clarification, "writing" includes emails. When we use the words "writing" or "written" in these terms, this includes e-mails and SMS texts or messages.
Our Service & Repair servicesOur "services" are divided into three parts:
- Inspection. This will usually take place at one of our retail stores where you submit your device initially, or in one of our service centres with or without you present, and this involves identifying what, if any issues or faults are found with your device. At this stage we will record what faults are found or reported by you, as well as the cosmetic condition of your device, and any points of note that we find on the inspection.
- Diagnosis. This stage of the process involves running a diagnostic review on your device in store or at our service centre to further analyse the reported or identified faults to be diagnosed so that we can identify if it can be repaired, to see what parts are required to be ordered for such a repair process and to determine an estimated price and timeline for the repair, if possible. This is a chargeable and non-refundable service, irrespective if your device is under or outside of the manufacturer’s warranty.
- Repair. The repair process will fall into one of the possible options for your device to be repaired or replaced, as outlined in section 3 below:
- In Warranty. If your device is covered by a warranty and can be repaired, we will carry out the repair and return the device to you – either via the store where you submitted your device for inspection & repair initially, or directly if you posted or delivered your device to us, then this will be returned by courier to your address.
- In Warranty, but Beyond Economical Repair. If your device cannot be economically or practically repaired and is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty (or if it’s covered by an approved insurance cover – acceptable to the Company), we will contact you to inform you accordingly and arrange a replacement device to be ordered for you.
- Outside of Warranty. If your device can be repaired practically but is not in warranty or covered by an approved insurance cover, we will write to you to let you know the cost of the parts and our labour fee for repairing your device. It is then at your discretion to confirm to us to proceed with the repair or to return the device to you (at your cost) or to dispose of the device for recycling.
- Outside of Warranty, and Beyond Economical Repair. If, in our opinion, your device cannot be repaired and is not covered by a warranty then we will contact you to let you know and arrange for the return of your device. Our decision as to whether your device is repairable is final. If you do not reply or do not arrange to collect your device within 30 days, then we may dispose of the device for recycling.
Service & Repairs in Warranty – future, post repair Warranty
- If your device is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. If your device is repaired or replaced and is covered by a manufacturer’s warranty then your replaced or repaired device will be covered for the remainder of your original warranty period or 90 days, whichever is longer.
- If your device is covered under Stormfront 3-year warranty. If your device is repaired and is covered by our Company warranty then your replaced or repaired device will be covered for the remainder of your original warranty period or 90 days, whichever is longer.
- If your device is repaired out of warranty. If your device is repaired outside of warranty, then any replacement parts used in the repair will come with a 90-day warranty. However, we do not warrant that any repair we conduct will address any other non-identified fault at the time of the original repair. Any parts replaced under the repair, when in warranty with the manufacturer will be returned to the manufacturer. Any parts replaced under the repair, when out of warranty with the manufacturer will be either returned to the manufacturer or disposed for recycling.
- Third-party Parts. If on inspection a device is found to have replacement 3rd party parts or ‘rogue’ parts that are not supplied by the manufacturer, your warranty will be deemed as invalid and we reserve the right to refuse to service / repair the product, if it is either in or outside of the warranty period. The product will then be returned to you.
Return of your device
- 30-Days’ Notice. If you do not collect your device from us within 30-days of us sending you a notice that it can be collected, we reserve the right to dispose of or recycle your device and you hereby agree (by accepting these terms of service) that you (as the legal and beneficial owner of the device) indemnify us against any claim that may arise from the disposal, destruction or recycling of your device, including that relating to the loss of any data.
- Time limits for returns. If you either do not instruct us to conduct necessary repairs or fail to provide instructions to proceed or otherwise fail to respond and instruct us, within 30-days from the date on which we provide a quote to you for repair, then (unless both Parties agree otherwise) we will assume you do not wish to proceed with the repair and we will return your device to you directly or we will leave it at the retail store at which it was initially inspected. We will contact you to let you know when your device is ready to collect, and sub-clause 5 (a) will apply.
- Third-party Parts. We will test your device to identify faults & issues, including to see whether it has been previously repaired, altered or modified by a third-party (or if it contains third-party parts as a result of a repair inside or outside of warranty provided elsewhere). We are not responsible for any damage caused to your device as a result of these tests if any third-party part, repair, alteration or modification is identified and conflicts in any way with our systems, parts or services provided.
- Return of Devices Beyond Economical Repair. Devices may be returned in a different condition to that as submitted for repair if the device is deemed by the Company (in our sole opinion) as being Beyond Economical Repair. During diagnosis your device may be dismantled and if the parts are damaged, broken or irreplaceable then your device may not be returned in a complete state or in the same or better condition than when it was submitted to us. This is often unavoidable.
Our contract with you
- Our acceptance of your request for a repair will take place when we tell you that we are able to provide you with the repair services, which we will also confirm in writing to you, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and the Company.
- If we are unable to accept your request for a repair for any reason, we will inform you of this and will not charge you further for the repair services. The Diagnostic fee outlined above may still apply.
- We will assign a reference number (called an SRO) to your request and tell you what it is when we accept your request for a repair.
- This service is only available for devices in the United Kingdom.
- We are only responsible to you for foreseeable loss / damage caused by us. We are responsible for loss / damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable (including data loss). Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you realise that it may happen.
- We do not exclude or limit our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the services including the right to receive services which are as described and supplied with reasonable skill and care.
- We are not liable for Business losses. The services under these terms and conditions are offered for domestic and private / consumer use only. If you use the services for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
- We are not liable for Data lost from your device. This includes data stored on or accessed via your device. It is your responsibility to ensure that, prior to inspection, your device has been backed up. We are not responsible and will not be held liable for any data loss which may occur as a result of these services.
Changes to the service
- If you wish to make a change to the services, please contact us as soon as possible. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the services, their timing or anything else which would arise as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
- We may change the services offered at our discretion, but any such change will usually be to reflect changes in relevant laws or regulatory requirements; or to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements.
- If a change will affect your use of the services or the price of the repair, we will let you know in advance of the further work being undertaken.
Timing and information provided for the services
- We will supply the services to you from the date set out in the repair request until we have completed the services. The estimated completion date for the services is as told to you during the repair request process or we end the contract by written notice to you as described below.
- We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our performance of the services is affected by an event outside our control, we will contact you to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any services you have paid for but not as yet received.
- As outline above, in the description of the services, we will need certain information from you so that we can provide the services to you, for example, your contact details, information about your device (e.g., when and from where it was purchased, technical information or other details which we may request from you at either inspection or diagnosis). If you do not (within a reasonable time of us asking for it) provide us with this information, or you provide us with incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for providing the services late or not providing any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information that we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
- We may suspend the services if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the services when you are supposed to and you still do not make payment when we remind you that payment is due, we will suspend supply of the service and clause 5 will apply.
Customer rights to end the contract
- You may end the contract before the services have been supplied and paid for. You may contact us at any time to end the contract for the services, but in some circumstances, we may charge you certain sums for doing so, as described below.
- If you are ending the contract for a reason set out below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any services which have not been provided or have not been properly provided. The relevant reasons are:

Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in light of those risks.

The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not fool proof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
These content standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to our site (contributions), and to any interactive services associated with it.

3 year guarantee
Our guarantee for Mac, iPad and iPhone.
The Stormfront guarantee gives you 3 years peace of mind from the date of purchase of your Mac, iPad or iPhone. During the first year, the device is also covered by the standard Apple warranty.
What if your Mac, iPad or iPhone develops a fault?
As Stormfront is one of the UK’s largest Apple Authorised Service Providers, we are the best people to look after your device.
In the unlikely event a hardware fault occurs, please visit your nearest Stormfront store. One of the team will confirm the issue and if required, arrange for its onward transfer to our national Service Centre.
Any claims under this guarantee will need confirmation of the serial number and the original date of purchase from your receipt, so please keep it safe.
What if we cannot repair the item?
If we cannot repair the item we will replace it with an item of equivalent specification. If an item of equivalent specification is unavailable, we will work with you to seek a suitable settlement. We will always endeavour to find a resolution that you are satisfied with.
What is not included?
There are some specific exclusions from the guarantee:
- Repair costs caused by external factors, such as computer viruses, malfunctioning software (including the operating system), theft and weather.
- Depleted or consumed batteries.
- Accidental / deliberate damage, for example, if the product is dropped or has liquid spilt onto it.

- After the first year, storage devices (such as hard drives or solid state drives), external power chargers, cables and Apple Watch straps are excluded from the Stormfront guarantee but may be covered by EU consumer law.

Personal Trainer services are intended for informational purposes only.

Personal Trainer sessions are individual sessions between the Personal Trainer member and a Stormfront employee.

Members must book their reservations online using the Stormfront Personal Trainer scheduling system. Members can choose an upcoming reservation for one (1) Personal Trainer session at a time. After the completion of that session, you may schedule your next session for the following week. For the purposes of this membership, the week begins on a Monday. Personal Trainer topics are detailed on the Stormfront training website, found at http://www.stormfront.co.uk/personaltrainer, and are subject to change. Personal Trainer sessions start promptly at their scheduled time and instruction ends 50 minutes later, with a 5 minute wrap-up. Arriving late to a Personal Trainer session may result in its cancellation or rescheduling. Stormfront reserves the right to change or cancel the date or time of any Personal Trainer session at any time, including replacing staff who may be scheduled to deliver the session.

Any finance arrangement entered into for Associated Accessories shall continue for the duration of the Usage Period. Associated Accessories are not eligible for the Upgrade Option (see clause 2) and therefore are not returnable and become your property upon full payment of the Instalment Loan.

You may be offered a choice of Usage Periods. Stormfront does not advise on the suitability of different Usage Periods and selection of a Usage Period offered by us is at your sole discretion. Once the Usage Period has come to an end you must decide whether to:
proceed with the remaining payments due under the current Finance Period until conclusion of the Finance Period, at the end of which you will own the Product; or,
trade-in the Product (excluding any Associated Accessories); or
begin a new Finance Period (see Upgrade Option at clause 2).
Missed Payments. If you missed a payment of your Instalment Loan then your Usage Period may be extended by the period for which payment was missed.
Instalment Loan. You will be required to apply for and enter into an instalment loan (“Instalment Loan”) with a 9.5% (Fixed) Annual Percentage Rate (“APR”) for the Finance Period you have chosen, for the price of the eligible Product. You will be required to pay 5% upfront deposit. The APR for any Associated Accessories is 11.9%. You will enter into the Instalment Loan with Stormfront’s finance partner, Klarna Bank AB (“Bank”).

you have come to the end of or exceeded the Usage Period;
your account with the Bank is in good standing under the terms of your Instalment Loan and all payments have been received without any issue; and
your Product meets the requirements of condition set out at clause 2.8.
Eligible Product Availability Upgrading to a new eligible Product is subject to its release and availability at the time you exercise your Upgrade Option. Depending on the eligible Product model and Associated Accessories chosen, your monthly instalment payment may change.
Exercising your Upgrade Option. To exercise your Upgrade Option you must clear all payments due on your Instalment Loan. This can be done by
trading in your Product in accordance with these terms, as directed by Stormfront (subject that you may need to pay further amounts); and
enter in to and agree to the Easy Upgrade Programme terms set out at that time.
Timing. You may exercise your Upgrade Option at any time after the Usage Period has ended or payments due during the Usage Period have been made.
Termination of Original Instalment Loan after Exercising Upgrade Option. Upon successfully exercising your Upgrade Option, the Trade-In Partner will pay a value up to the remaining balance due under your original Instalment Loan on your behalf to the Bank. You may be required to continue to make payments or make a single payment to the Bank to exercise your Upgrade Option (dependant on the state of the Product).
Prompt Return of Product. If you exercise your Upgrade Option you must return your original Product in suitable condition, as directed by Stormfront, before your new Instalment Loan can begin. Your original Instalment Loan will continue until the new Instalment Loan can begin and as such you will be responsible for the remaining instalment payments.
Condition of Product on return. Your Product must be in good physical and operational condition when exercising your Upgrade Option as determined solely by Stormfront. For a Product to be considered in good physical and operational condition, the Product must meet the following criteria:
power on and hold a charge;
have no functional faults found;
have an intact and functioning display, ports, speakers, cameras and input methods (including capacitive input, trackpad, buttons and keys, as appropriate);
displays should have no distortion or discolouration;
have no breaks, cracks, chips, deep scratches or excessive wear; and

provide the original charger, power cable, keyboard, mouse and any other peripherals provided with the Product when it was purchased in working condition.
If, in either Stormfront’s or the Trade-in Partner’s opinion, the Product does not meet the criteria as set out above then Stormfront may offer a cost for repair of the Product to meet the criteria or you may accept a reduced value for the Product when exercising the Upgrade Option. Please note that this means the Product value may not settle the outstanding balance due to the Bank and further payments may be required.
Lost or Stolen Product. If your Product is lost or stolen, you will not be eligible for the Upgrade Option. In the event your Product is lost or stolen, contact Stormfront at Contact Us.
