9. Your Consumer Right Of Return & Refund
This clause 9 only applies if you are a consumer.
- 9.1 - If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract during the period set out below in clause 9.3. 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 Goods, you can notify Us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. We are under a legal duty to provide Goods that are in conformity with this Contract. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
- 9.2 - However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of:
(a) - any Goods that are made to your specifications or are clearly personalised;
(b) - any Goods that are marked as “made to order”;
(c) - any Goods that are non-stock items and which are identified as such on Our website;
(d) - any Goods which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery; or
(e) - any Goods liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly; and
(f) - any Goods (or any part of any Goods) that have been used or altered by you unless faulty.
- 9.3 - Your legal right to cancel a 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 in the table below:
|Your Contract||End of the cancellation period|
|Your Contract is for a single item of Goods (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days).||
The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Goods.
Example: if We provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Goods on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.
Your Contract is for either of the following:
one item of Goods which is delivered in instalments on separate days.
multiple Goods which are delivered on separate days.
The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the Goods or the last of the separate Goods ordered.
Example: if We provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the first instalment of your Goods or the first of your separate Goods on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate Goods on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate Goods at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.
|Your Contract is for the regular delivery of Goods over a set period.||
The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the first delivery of the Goods.
Example: if We provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January in respect of Goods to be delivered at regular intervals over a year and you receive the first delivery of your Goods on 10 January, you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January. 24 January is the last day of the cancellation period in respect of all Goods to arrive during the year.
- 9.4 - To cancel a Contract, you just need to let Us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to complete the cancellation form on Our website. If you use this method We will e-mail you to confirm We have received your cancellation. Alternatively you may use a copy of the form which is attached at the back of these Terms as a schedule. You can also e-mail Us at [email protected] or contact our customer services team by telephone on 01772 431 216. If you are e-mailing Us 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. For example, you will have given Us notice in time as long as you e-mail Us before midnight on that day.
- 9.5 - If you cancel your Contract We will:
(a) - refund you the price you paid for the Goods. However, please note We are permitted by law 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. See our Returns page for information about what handling is acceptable and examples. 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.
(b) - refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method We offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if We offer delivery of Goods within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Goods delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then We will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
(c) - make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(i) - if you have received the Goods and We have not offered to collect them from you: 14 days after the day on which We receive the Goods back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide Us with evidence that you have sent the Goods back to Us. For information about how to return Goods to Us, see clause 9.8;
(ii) - if you have not received the Goods or you have received them and We have offered to collect them from you: 14 days after you inform Us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
- 9.6 - If you have returned the Goods to Us under this clause 9 because they are faulty or mis-described, We will refund the price of the Goods in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, based on the cheapest delivery cost available and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to Us. If the Goods returned are not faulty or mis-described, the return of the Goods will be at your cost (see clause 9.8(b)).
- 9.7 - We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay.
- 9.8 - If Goods have been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
(a) - then you must return them 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 them back, return it to Us in-store or hand to our authorised carrier. Please see our Returns page for our returns address, printable returns labels and information about our authorised carrier and how to arrange a return. If We have offered to collect the Goods from you, We will collect the Goods from the address to which they were delivered. We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection;
(b) - the Goods are faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 9.6), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Goods to Us. If the Goods cannot be returned by post, We estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the Goods to you, these costs should not exceed the sums We charged you for delivery. If We have offered to collect the Goods from you, We will charge you the direct cost to Us of collection. We will inform you of the cost of collection prior to collection being agreed.
- 9.9 - Because you are a consumer, We are under a legal duty to supply Goods that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Goods that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 9 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
- 10.1 - We will contact you with an estimated delivery date, which will be within 60 days after the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which We e-mail you to confirm Our acceptance of your Order).

- 10.2 - We shall ensure that each delivery of the Goods is accompanied by a delivery note which shows the date of the Order, all relevant reference numbers used by you and Us, the type and quantity of the Goods (including the code number of the Goods, where applicable) and special storage instructions (if any).
- 10.3 - If no one is available at your address to take delivery, We will leave you a note that the Goods have been returned to our premises, in which case, please contact Us to rearrange delivery.
- 10.4 - Unless clause 10.9 applies, delivery of an Order shall be completed when We deliver the Goods to the address you gave Us or you or a carrier organised by you collect them from Us and the Goods will be your responsibility from that time.

We shall not be liable for any delay whatsoever or howsoever arising in delivery of the Goods or any loss or damage or otherwise suffered by you and / or any third party arising therefrom howsoever or whatsoever arising including but not limited to any labour costs or contractor or agent costs, damages for delay (including without limitation liquidated damages) or prolongation or acceleration costs or any consequential loss or damage incurred by you or any third party due to late delivery.
- 10.8 - If We fail to deliver the Goods, Our liability shall be limited to the costs and expenses incurred by you in obtaining replacement Goods of similar description and quality in the cheapest market available, less the price of the Goods.This clause 10.8 is your sole remedy against Us for failure to deliver. For the avoidance of doubt, We shall not be liable for any delay whatsoever or howsoever arising from failure of delivery of the Goods or any loss or damage or otherwise suffered by you and / or any third party arising therefrom howsoever or whatsoever arising including but not limited to any labour costs or contractor or agent costs, damages for delay (including without limitation liquidated damages) or prolongation or acceleration costs or any consequential loss or damage incurred by you or any third party due to the failure to deliver the Goods (of any part of the Goods).
- 10.9 - If you fail to take delivery of the Goods or to collect the Goods within three Business Days of Us notifying you that the Goods are ready, then, except where the failure is caused by an Event Outside Our Control or Our failure to comply with Our obligations under the Contract:

(b) - We shall store the Goods until delivery takes place, and shall be entitled to charge you for all related transport and storage costs and expenses (including insurance).
- 10.10 - If ten Business Days after the date on which We notified you that the Goods were ready for delivery you have not taken delivery of them or collected them, We may resell or otherwise dispose of part or all of the Goods and, after deducting reasonable storage and selling costs, account to you for any excess over the price of the Goods or charge you for any shortfall below the price of the Goods.

- 10.13 - If We miss the 60 day delivery deadline for any Goods then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:
(a) - We have refused to deliver the Goods;
(b) - delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
(c) - you told Us before we accepted your Order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
- 10.14 - If you do not wish to cancel your Order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 10.13, you can give Us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your Order if We do not meet the new deadline.
- 10.15 - If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under clause 10.13 or clause 10.14, you can do so for just some of the Goods or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value.

We will not process your Order until We have your instructions. If We are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, We will treat the Order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
