HP TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF ONLINE AND PHONE SALES TO CONSUMERS
Hewlett-Packard Limited ("HP")
Cain Road, Bracknell RG12 1HN
These HP Terms and Conditions of Online and Phone Sales (the "Terms") apply to orders submitted by you to HP either online or over the phone for products and services available in the HP Store website (the "HP Store"). These conditions apply only to consumers who are purchasing products or services for use outside of their trade, business or profession. Any business customers who access this site should instead use the HP Business Store website at www.hp.co.uk
Prices, Shipping Charges and Payment
Prices, shipping charges and payment terms shall be as specified in the HP Store, as determined when ordering online or over the phone. You will also be charged any applicable value added taxes; no value added taxes refund system for non-EU residents is currently available from HP for online or phone purchases. HP reserves the right to change prices published on the HP Business Store at any time. HP may change credit or payment terms at any time if, in HP's reasonable opinion, your financial condition, previous payment record or the nature of your relationship with HP so warrants.
For Paypal orders your account will be debited after passing the fraud check (normally 1 day) after the order acceptance.
For orders placed on credit terms payment is due, as a single payment for the full invoice amount, within 30 calendar days: the due date is printed on your invoice.
Invoices can be sent by email in PDF format to the email address provided on the order or by paper invoice sent by post (you need to select it at order placement).

All orders are subject to acceptance by HP. HP will provide you with an order acceptance or rejection notice as soon as reasonably possible.
You agree that we may use Personal information provided by you in order to conduct appropriate anti-fraud checks. Personal Information that you provide may be checked against a credit reference or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information.
HP reserves the right to cancel any accepted order prior to delivery, at HP's discretion (whether or not payment was made), and this in case of any material errors in connection with your order, the price or other conditions published in the HP Business Store relevant for your order, or if any further verification of your credit conditions or records so warrants. If payment was made and your order is cancelled, HP will issue an appropriate credit to your account (or may contact you to collect information in order to do so). Rights to cancel regarding defective products are set out below.
You may change your mind and cancel your purchase at any time before the date 7 working days after the products are delivered and receive a full refund. Cancellations may be made by notifying HP through the Call Centre on 0845 604 29 21 between 9 a.m. and 5.30 p.m. Monday to Friday (call charges apply). HP will collect the products but you will make them available for collection with the original box and packaging to the extent this is still possible together with any accessories and free gifts received with the products. Any software must be sealed and not opened. You must take reasonable care of all products whilst they are still in your possession. If the products were a special order made to your specification, this right of cancellation does not apply.
Orders are delivered as specified in the HP Store and determined by you when ordering online or over the phone.
We deliver only to UK destinations. Standard delivery for those products shown as available from stock will be next working day for orders received and accepted before 4 p.m (this will not apply if additional checks and verifications by HP are required). For remote or offshore destinations delivery will normally be within 72 hours from order acceptance. You will receive an order acceptance from us by e-mail once we have satisfactorily verified your payment details. These times are estimates and cannot be guaranteed.
For those products which are not immediately available from stock, an approximate availability is shown alongside the product description. These products can be ordered and will be delivered as soon as they are available. You will be notified as soon as we get a delivery date. If an item on a ‘group’ order has an extended lead-time, we will send your items together when they are all in stock as we cannot process split orders. If you would like to order a similar item which is in stock or cancel an item which has limited availability within a ‘group’ order, you will need to cancel the full order and place another order(s) separately.
Delivery is free of charge unless you request non standard delivery service.
- Events beyond our reasonable control. HP will not be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations hereunder if the delay or failure arises from any cause which is beyond our reasonable control.
- Time Limited discounts: HP may operate time-limited discounts.
- HP reserve the right to amend information, products and / or prices at any time.
- Electronic communications: When ordering from HP you consent to receive communications from us electronically relating to your order.
Title and Risk of Loss
Title to hardware products passes to you upon the later of full payment or delivery of products. Risk of loss and damage pass to you upon delivery
Defects on Delivery and Returns
Your acceptance of the products occurs upon delivery of the products and will be presumed unless you notify HP through our Call Centre, as soon as reasonably possible but, in any case, no more than 30 days after delivery, that the products have been delivered in inoperable or otherwise defective condition. In such cases you should contact our customer service agents on 0845 604 29 21 between 9 a.m. and 5.30 p.m. Monday to Friday (call charges apply)
If you reject any products, HP shall pick them up and, at your option, either replace or repair them, or refund the amounts you paid for them unless any such remedy is disproportionate or impossible. HP may test products upon return and charge you any costs incurred by HP if you wrongly claimed that returned products were inoperable or defective.
Return of products purchased under a special offer or promotion or as part of a bundle may be subject to specific conditions, as described herein or otherwise communicated to you. No refund is allowed for individual products purchased as part of a bundle or under a voucher promotion jointly with other products, but HP will either (i) replace such individual product or (ii) have returned the whole product bundle or the whole order and refund the amounts you paid. HP reserves the right to be reimbursed for any promotional discounts applied on other products you purchased if such discounts were dependent on the purchase of the product(s) returned to HP.
If you have accepted goods but a fault appears within the first 6 months after delivery, HP will at your request on notification, repair or replace the defective goods or, where such remedy is disproportionate or impossible, offer a refund or price reduction. From 6 months after delivery, you need to prove to HP that the defect was present at the time of delivery in order to invoke such rights. HP may test products upon return and charge you any costs incurred by HP if you wrongly claimed that returned products were inoperable or defective. If you do have a right of return, HP will either collect the products or pay the costs of returning them.
All products are covered by HP's limited warranty, in accordance with the terms and limitations specified in the warranty statement bundled with such products.
HP products are provided with a manufacturer warranty (HP Limited Warranty). Please refer to the HP Limited Warranty Statement provided with your product for extensive description of your manufacturer warranty entitlements, scope and duration.
In addition, if you are a consumer according to EU Directive 99/44 you may have additional statutory rights for the lack of conformity of your product with the contract of sale. Such statutory rights are independent and complementary to the HP Limited Warranty and are not in any way affected by it.
According to the EU Directive 99/44, if a lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery becomes apparent within 2 years as from delivery of the product to you, consumers are entitled to have the product brought into conformity free of charge by repair or replacement, or to have an appropriate reduction made in the price or the contract rescinded with regard to such product.
Unless proved otherwise, any lack of conformity which becomes apparent within six months of delivery of the product shall be presumed to have existed at the time of delivery unless this presumption is incompatible with the nature of the products or the nature of the lack of conformity.
Should you purchase an HP Support Pack,. HP will provide those maintenance and support services you ordered in accordance with the applicable service description and subject to the conditions and limitations specified in the applicable terms
HP software products are subject to HP's standard licence terms posted in the HP Store. Non-HP software products and, exceptionally, some HP software products, may be subject to different licence terms, as provided with such products.
Limitation of the Liability
Subject to the following provisions, HP's liability is limited to losses that were reasonably foreseeable at the time you purchased the product on these terms from HP.
HP will not be liable for loss of data as it expects you to make appropriate arrangements to back up your data.
HP does not exclude or limit liability for death or personal injury (including to the extent caused by its negligence), for wilful default, for any breach of any undertaking as to title, quiet possession and freedom from encumbrance implied by applicable law, for fraud, fraudulent misrepresentation or any misrepresentation as to a matter fundamental to its ability to perform contractual obligations or for any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by law.
Protection of Personal Data
You agree that any personally identifiable information you provide to us in connection with the HP Store may be dealt with by HP in accordance with the terms specified in the HP Privacy Statement available at the bottom of the HP Store web pages.
Other applicable terms
Sales are governed by the laws of the country and locality of delivery within the European Union (EU) and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). You must comply with all applicable export licensing laws if you export the products.
You may have additional rights under your local statutory or consumer laws, which provide you with other remedies. To the extent that these Terms, HP's limited warranty, standard licence or Support Pack terms are inconsistent with the statutory laws of the country where HP has delivered the product(s) or support to you, they are deemed modified to be consistent with such local law.
Important Note: If you, for any reason, do not have access to any of the conditions referenced in these Terms, such as the HP Privacy Statement or HP Software Licence Terms, we ask you to contact the HP Call Centre and ask for a copy. The Terms and additional conditions referenced therein that are in effect at the time you submit your order will govern such order, so you are encouraged to print and keep a copy of them for your future reference.
