Terms of Service

By placing an order via our website (www.lifty.co), you are offering to purchase a product on and subject to the following terms and conditions. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price.

Dispatch times may vary according to availability and any guarantees or representations made as to delivery times are subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force majeure for which we will not be responsible. Please see our ordering and delivery page for further information.

In order to contract with Lifty Electrics you must be over 18 years of age. Lifty Electrics retains the right to refuse any request made by you. If your order is accepted we will inform you by email and we will confirm the identity of the party which you have contracted with.

This will usually be Lifty Electrics or may in some cases be a third party. 

Where a contract is made with a third party, Lifty Electrics is not acting as either agent or principal and the contract is made between yourself and that third party and will be subject to the terms of sale which they supply you. When placing an order you undertake that all details you provide to us are true and accurate, that you are an authorised user of the credit or debit card, or bank account used to place your order and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods. The cost of international products and services may fluctuate. All prices advertised are subject to such changes.

 

Electric scooters are not to be used on footpaths, cycle lanes or roads. It is the complete responsibility of the customer to ensure that your e-scooter is operated by all country and local laws. The customer assumes all liability and risk associated with the use of electric scooter products and holds Lifty Electrics Ltd and its owners free from any liability caused by their use.

Our Contract

When you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement email confirming receipt of your order. This email will only be an acknowledgement and will not constitute acceptance of your order. Lifty Electrics retains the right to accept or reject this offer before processing the order. A contract between us for the purchase of the goods will not be formed until your payment has been approved by us, the prices have been verified, and the order has been processed and dispatched. 

Pricing and Availability

Whilst we try and ensure that all details, descriptions and prices which appear on this website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any goods which you have ordered we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund. Where applicable, prices are inclusive of VAT. Delivery costs will be charged in addition. Such additional charges are clearly displayed where applicable and included in the 'Grand Total'.

The website may contain typographical errors or other errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. We therefore reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information at any time without prior notice.

We reserve the right to refuse to fulfil any orders that you may place based on information on the website that may contain errors or inaccuracies, including, without limitation, errors, inaccuracies or out-of-date information regarding pricing, shipping, payment terms, or return policies.


Fair Purchase Policy

At Lifty Electrics, we buy from our suppliers with an agreement to sell to our private customers. It is not in our business model to sell items in bulk quantities to other retailers. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders which we suspect are beyond the requirements for an individual. If you have any questions on this matter, or wish to consult us before making a large purchase, please contact us at hello@lifty.co

We allow you to positively opt-in to receiving marketing materials to keep you up to date with our latest offers.  When you visit our website, or make a purchase, there is an option for you to positively opt-in.

When you opt-in to receiving marketing materials from us, we will use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage, Profile and Aggregated Data to provide you with details of products, services and offers that may be relevant for you.

You can choose to opt-out of direct marketing through your account settings, by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link from any email or contacting us using the contact details provided below.

When you see our adverts on other websites

We engage in online advertising to make it easy for you to find our site and keep you up to date with what we’re up to. 

  1.  Disclosures of personal data

We will treat your personal data as confidential and will keep any personal data about you in accordance with the data protection laws. We do not, and will not, sell any of your personal data to any third parties. We may however, need to share your information with third parties who provide services to us which are necessary to deliver our services or products to you. These third parties include service providers such as IT maintenance, professional advisors, payment facilitators, website hosting, file hosting and system administration services.

The third parties we engage with work as we do and will only collect, use and disclose your personal data to the extent that it is necessary in order to deliver our service or product to you. We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the data protection laws. We do not allow our third party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Where we use third parties to process your personal data on our behalf, we will always carry out checks to ensure that there are appropriate protections for safeguarding your personal data.

We will not usually disclose your personal data other than as set out above. However, there may be circumstances where we need to share personal data other than as anticipated above. These include:

-          Where we are legally required to disclose the information, for example because a court orders us to do so;

-          Where the disclosure of the personal data is required for the purposes of the prevention and detection of crime. This includes sharing the personal data with tax authorities and law enforcement agencies;

-          Where we need to disclose the personal data for the purpose of or in connection with any legal proceedings, or for the purpose of obtaining legal advice, or the disclosure is otherwise necessary for the purposes of establishing, exercising or defending legal rights;

-          Where disclosure is necessary to protect your vital interests (for example if you are unwell at one of our stores, we may need to seek medical assistance); and

-          Where we may share your personal data with third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets if we reorganise our business. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them.

  1.  Transfer outside of the EEA

We may need to transfer your personal data outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) in order to provide you with the services and products you require.

In the event that personal data is transferred to countries outside of the EEA, those countries may not offer an equivalent level of protection for personal data to the laws in the UK. If we disclose your personal data to a third party which is outside the EEA, we will not do so until we have taken steps to ensure that appropriate safeguards are put in place and your personal data is afforded similar levels of protection as that required from us by data protection laws in the UK.

Where we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we will ensure that a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

-          We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.

-          We will use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe; or

-          Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal information shared between the Europe and the US.

Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.

 

  1.  Data Security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

  1.  Retention

We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and the applicable legal requirements.

Generally we will keep your personal data for as long as you have an account with us and for a period of 5 years following closure of your account or from the date of your last order where you do not hold an account with us. However, where we have a statutory obligation to keep the personal data for a longer period or where we may need to keep your personal data for a longer period in case of a legal claim or dealing with ongoing queries or complaints, then the retention period may be longer.

  1.  Your rights

You have a number of rights in relation to your personal data. You have the right within certain legal parameters, to:

-          Be informed about how we use your personal data (which we do in this Privacy Policy);

-          Obtain access to your personal data that we hold;

-          Request that your personal data is corrected if you believe it is incorrect, incomplete or inaccurate;

-          Ask us to erase your personal data in certain circumstances;

-          Ask us to restrict our information processing activities in certain circumstances;

-          Ask us to transfer or port elements of your personal data to you or another service provider in a commonly used electronic format;

-          Not be subject to automated decisions about you and to request human intervention; and

-          Withdraw consent where we are relying on consent to process your personal data (for example, in relation to our marketing materials).

 

If you would like to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us using the contact details above.

No fee usually required

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

What we may need from you

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

Time limit to respond

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
