You may cancel either in respect of all the affected Products or just the Products you have yet to receive. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Products you have already received and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.
return and refund
xx)If during a relevant period (as set out in clause 8.3) 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.
xxi)However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of:
1.xxi.1sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these Products are unsealed after you receive them; and
1.xxi.2any Products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
xxii)The period during which you may cancel the Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we email 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 following table:
End of the cancellation period
Your Contract is for a single Product (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 Product.
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Product 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:
(a) one Product which is delivered in instalments on separate days.
(b) multiple Products which are delivered on separate days.
The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the Product or the last of the separate Products ordered.
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the first instalment of your Product or the first of your separate Products on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate Product on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate Products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.
Your Contract is for the regular delivery of a Product over a set period.
The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the first delivery of the Products.
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January in respect of Products to be delivered at regular intervals over a year and you receive the first delivery of your Product 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 Products to arrive during the year.
xxiii)To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. You can contact us by one of the means set out in clause 1.2. If you are emailing or writing to us, please include details of your order to help us to identify it. Your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the email or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or email us before midnight on that day.
xxiv)If you cancel your Contract we will:
1.xxiv.1refund you the price you paid for the Products. 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. 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;
1.xxiv.2make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(xxiv.2.a)if you have received the Product: 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 clause 8.8;
(xxiv.2.b)if you have not received the Product: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
xxv)If you have returned the Products to us under this clause 8 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.
xxvi)We will refund you through the method that you chose to pay; either Paypal, credit card or debit card or BACS payment.
xxvii)If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
1.xxvii.1then 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 send it back to our registered address as set out in clause 1.2;
1.xxvii.2unless the Product is faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 8.6) 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.
xxviii)We will contact you with an estimated delivery date. This will usually be within 30 days after the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we email you to confirm our acceptance of your order), but may be dependent upon your delivery address. Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 15 for our responsibilities when this happens.
xxix)Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us. The Products will be your responsibility from that time.
xxx)You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
xxxi)If we miss the delivery deadline for any Products, we will aim to deliver:
1.xxxi.1within a reasonably advised delivery deadline as given to us in writing; or
1.xxxi.2within a further reasonable period not exceeding 30 days.
If we do not meet the later of 9.4.1 or 9.4.2, you may cancel your Order.
xxxii)If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under clause 9.4, you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your Order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.
xxxiii)As we set out on our site, we deliver to all UPS shipping destinations (International Delivery Destinations). If there are restrictions on some Products for certain International Delivery Destinations, we ask that you review the information on our site carefully before ordering Products.
xxxiv)If you order Products from our site for delivery to one of the International Delivery Destinations, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount.
xxxv)You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
xxxvi)You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.
price of products and delivery charges
xxxvii)The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site at the time you submit your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However please see clause 11.5 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered.
xxxviii)Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
xxxix)The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
xl)The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order, and correspond to the relevant delivery charges of our courier service, UPS. As such, all delivery charges are estimates only and may be subject to variation should there be any change in the operation or costing of UPS (for example, if there is a change to UPS’ oil pricing for shipping) . We will notify you regarding any variations to your delivery charges as soon as reasonably practicable and, if any increase is proposed, will offer you the right to amend or cancel your order.
xli)Our site contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. 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. If we mistakenly accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable to a reasonable business customer and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may cancel supply of the Product and refund you any sums you have paid.
how to pay
xlii)You can pay for Products using Paypal or by using a debit card or credit card. We accept all debit cards and the following credit cards: VISA, Mastercard, Maestro and American Express. We will only accept BACS payments if we have provided you with written confirmation of this payment method.
