7.2. If you are a consumer, you have a right to cancel a Contract, under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013], during the period set out below in Section 5.4. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund.
Please note that Products should be unused and returned in their original packaging. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
7.3. However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of:
7.3.1. any sealed Products once the seal has been removed or broken after you receive them;
7.3.2. any Products tampered with or dismantled, especially electrical equipment would void the Product’s warranty;
7.3.3. any custom build or custom design orders.
7.4. Your right to cancel the Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out below:
7.4.1. If you have ordered a single Product (which is not delivered in instalments) the deadline for cancellation is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive Product.
7.4.2. If you have ordered multiple Products or a single Product which is delivered in instalments, the deadline for cancellation is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the last of the separate Products or the last instalment of the Product.
7.5. To cancel the Contract, you need to let us know that you have decided to cancel using one of the following methods:
7.5.1. The easiest way to cancel is to complete the cancellation form. The cancellation form is obtainable by contacting our e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you use this method we will e-mail you to confirm we have received your cancellation request and send a Model Cancellation Form.
7.5.2. If you are e-mailing please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail.
7.6. If you cancel your Contract we will:
7.6.1. refund you the price you paid for the Products. Please note we are entitled to reduce your refund 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. 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.
7.6.2. refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the standard delivery method we offer. Expedited delivery or weekend delivery costs will only be refunded under Section 7.7.
7.6.3. make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
18.104.22.168. if you have received the Product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after 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 Section 5.9.
22.214.171.124. if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
7.7. If you have returned the Products to us under this Section 5 because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
7.8. We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the Product we may refund you in vouchers.
7.9. If you decide to cancel your Contract after receiving the Product:
7.9.1. then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract. You can either send it back, return it to us in-store at the address above;
7.9.2. unless the Product is faulty or not as described (in this case, see Section 7.7), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us. If the Product is one which cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the Product to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery.
7.10. Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this Section 7 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
