Terms and Conditions of Sale
Online Mobiles Limited t/a HyperMobile

Welcome to www.hypermobile.co.uk (“the Website”).

These Terms and Conditions of Sale (together with our Privacy Policy) tells you about us and the legal terms and conditions (Terms) on which we sell any of the mobile phones and mobile phone accessories (Goods) listed on our website (our site) to you.

These terms will apply to any contract between us for the sale of products to you and will be referred to as the Contract. By ordering Goods, you agree to be bound by these Terms and the other documents referred to in them.

If you buy a product from this website you are entering into a contract with Online Mobiles Limited for the supply of the Goods and a contract (“Network Contract”) with the relevant network provider (“Network Operator”) for the supply of telecommunications or data services provided by that Network Operator (“Services”). You should print a copy of these Terms and the Network Operator’s terms or save them to your computer for future reference.

We amend these Terms from time to time. Every time you wish to order Goods, please check these Terms to ensure you understand the terms which will apply at that time. Every time you order Goods from us, the Terms in force at that time will apply to the Contract between you and us.

5.The contract between us
5.1By ordering a Contract Phone or SIM Only, you are making an application to the Network Operator for them to provide the Service to you.
5.2During the order process you can check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to do so at each page of the order process.
5.3After you place an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place as described in clause 5.4 and will be subject to you passing our security checks which may include, without limitation, requiring proof of your address and identity.
5.4Our acceptance of your order for Goods and the formation of the contract of sale between us and you will take place when we send you an email that confirms that the products have been despatched (“Order Despatch”). The Network Contract will be formed when we connect the Contract Phone or SIM Only to the Network, which will be immediately prior to us sending the Despatch Confirmation.
5.5You have the option to cancel your order at any stage before we have sent the Order Despatch by contacting our call centre.
5.6If we are unable to supply you with a product, for example because that product is not in stock or no longer available or because of an error in the price as referred to in clause 7.5, we will inform you of this by email and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Goods, we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.
5.7If you place an order for Goods and Services and the Network Operator declines your order for Services because you do not satisfy a Network Operator’s credit checking requirements or the Network Operator refuses to enter into a Network Contract with you for some other reason and we are unable to alter this decision we may cancel your order for products. If we choose to cancel your order, we will let you know about this by email and/or telephone.
5.8Should the products and/or Services not be available within 60 days of the Order Confirmation, we reserve the right to cancel your order and refund any payment made by you in full as soon as possible.
6.1A pre-order is a statement of interest from you towards the pre-order Goods. After having received your pre-order, we will send you an acknowledgement email (“Pre-order Confirmation”) with your order number and details of the pre-order Goods. The Pre-order Confirmation is not an acceptance of your order.
6.2When the pre-order Goods are available we will send you an email (“Order Confirmation”) informing you that we are now processing your order and releasing it for delivery. Acceptance of your pre-order and the formation of the contract of sale between us and you will take place as stated in clause 5.
6.3If you are paying with a debit/credit card, we will not charge this when you place the pre-order. The payment card will be charged on despatch of the ordered Goods as described in clause 8 below.
6.4Pre-orders are subject to availability and will be processed in strict order of receipt.
6.5All pre-orders are subject to availability. There may be unforeseen delays in launching the pre-order products and in these instances, we will make all reasonable attempts to inform you of the delay.
6.6Any launch date displayed on this website is indicative only and may change.
6.7You have the right to cancel your pre-order at any time until the order is released for despatch and you have received the Order Despatch.
6.8If the product you have pre-ordered is not released or does not become available within 60 days (commencing the day after you ordered the product) (“Pre-order Expiry Date”), we shall contact you by email or phone.
6.9All pre-orders that are accepted by us (at our sole discretion) shall be subject to these Terms.
7.Pricing of products & Delivery charges
7.1The prices of the Goods will be as quoted on our site at the time that the order is placed and will be set out in the Order Confirmation.

7.3The price of the Goods includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current UK rate.
7.4The price of the Goods does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as quoted on our site from time to time.
7.5It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Goods on our site may be incorrectly priced or the wrong information may be given in relation to Network Contracts, Tariffs or promotions (an Error). If we discover an Error, we will inform you and will give you the option of continuing with your order based on the correct information or cancelling the order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

8.1You can only pay for Goods using a debit card or credit card approved by us as indicated on this Website. You must supply your card details when you place your order.

10.Title to Products
10.1We retain full legal title to Goods until we have received in full all amounts due on the ordered Goods, including all applicable delivery charges.
10.2We only agree to sell or supply Goods to you on the basis that you enter into a Network Contract, adhere to the terms and conditions of that Network Contract and pay the Network Operator all airtime bills as specified within the Network Contract for the agreed minimum term of the Network Contract.
10.3If you do not comply with the terms of your Network Contract at any time during the agreed minimum term of the Network Contract, the Network may recover from us any subsidies that it has paid to us for your product. If this happens, we may charge you the cost of the product as if it had been supplied to you on a SIM free basis (without a Network Contract) and we may debit your credit or debit card on the basis that the product was supplied to you on a SIM free basis. Once this payment has been received we will then credit your original VAT/tax receipt and re-issue to you a new SIM free product receipt.
10.4We reserve the right (subject to the applicable law) to end your right to use, sell, or otherwise deal in the Goods and to enter your premises and repossess the Goods (or instruct a third party to do so), if payment is not made, or if the debit/credit card company declines payment or requires us to return any payment made for the products, for any reason.
11.1You have 14 days, starting the day after the Goods came into your possession, in which to notify us of your intention to cancel your Network Contract due to change of mind.

11.6We will pay the costs of return if:
