The Pre-Order payment

2. Introduction

Upon receipt of your payment of the Deposit (as defined in Section 5 below) as set out herein, an agreement regarding the Pre-order has been entered between you and your preferred retailer.

2.1 A Pre-order is a preliminary, non-binding order that entitles you to be a prioritised customer when MINI Electric is launched for sale in the United Kingdom. Your preferred retailer will make reasonable efforts to ensure that you will be able to finalise your order for a MINI Electric. These Terms do not constitute a purchase agreement, and the Pre-order does not in any way confirm or guarantee your right to purchase a MINI Electric with priority over other customers. 

2.2 Your preferred retailer will contact you when it is time to finalise your Order at which point you will be offered the opportunity to purchase a MINI Electric.

3. The right to place a pre-order

3.1 You must be a retail customer at least 18 years of age and ensure that all the details you provide are accurate. 
3.2 The offer to make a Pre-order is available until the Pre-order functionality is removed from our digital channels. 
3.3 Only one (1) pre-order can be made per customer. Additional pre-orders will be cancelled.  
3.4 Your rights with respect to the Pre-order are personal and may not be assigned or transferred to anyone else. 
3.5 You represent and warrant that you are not a person, or acting on behalf of a person, designated on any sanctions list imposed by the UN, EU or US. If at any time these representations fail to be true, your Pre-order will automatically terminate with immediate effect, without any liability to compensate you whatsoever. Furthermore, according to law your preferred retailer may not be able to repay your Deposit payment.

4. How to make an online pre-order

4.1 When you have finalised the online Pre-order process in our digital channels and your preferred retailer has received your Deposit, you have made a Pre-order. 

4.3 After you have finalised your Pre-order, you will receive a receipt of your Pre-order confirming that it has been received and completed (”Pre-order Confirmation”).

4.4 If you do not receive the Pre-order Confirmation within twenty four (24) hours of completing the online process, please contact MINI UK customer support by email at customer.information@mini.co.uk or by telephoning 0800 0836 464.    

5. The deposit

5.1 Please note that your preferred retailer will collect a refundable 500 GBP deposit (the “Deposit”) in order for the Pre-Order to be processed. The Deposit, as set out above, is free of VAT. This means you will not be charged any VAT in relation to this Pre-order, and there is thus no VAT to reclaim on the Deposit payable to your preferred retailer, due to the fact that it is a refundable Deposit. 

5.2 The Deposit is payable by credit card. Ingenico Payment Services (“Ingenico”) provide your preferred retailer with Internet payment services. By accepting these Terms, you expressly agree to Ingenico handling the payment transaction, your card details and any other information necessary for such payment transaction to be executed by Ingenico (including but not limited to fraud prevention). Ingenico is certified by banks and card acquirers to securely manage payment transactions. All communication between the website and your bank is handled by Ingenico and is encrypted via SSL (Secure Sockets Layer).

5.3 When finalising your MINI Electric Order, the Deposit can be used as a partial payment for that Order. 
5.4 You do not have a right to collect interest on the Deposit.

6.3 If your Pre-order is cancelled for any reason, either by you or your preferred retailer, your Deposit will be refunded on the credit card used by you to pay the Deposit, and you will not be charged any fees due to the cancellation. Your preferred retailer will process your cancellation without undue delay, and in no event no later than fourteen (14) days after the cancellation notice is received.

6.4 The Feel Good Guarantee relates not only to Pre-orders but also to Orders placed for MINI Electric and is available to you if you place a Pre-order or an Order before 31st March 2020.
