9 CANCELLATION, RETURN AND REFUND RIGHTS
This clause 9.1 to 9.8 only applies if you are an individual consumer, but will apply whether you are based in the UK or in any other jurisdiction.
9.1 If you are an individual consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 if you are in the UK or under similar legislation in other jurisdictions during the period set out below in clause 9.2. 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. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office or other consumer protection government agency. This legal right is in addition to your right to return the Goods for any reason within 28 days as set out on our Returns Page.
9.2 The time period to cancel your contract begins on 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:
End of the Cancellation Period
Your Contract is for a single item (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 which is delivered in instalments on separate days; or
• multiple items 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 an item 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.
9.3 To cancel a Contract you shall notify us that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is by sending an e-mail to email@example.com or contact our Customer Services team by telephone. If you are e-mailing us please include details of your order to help us to identify it, such as the order number. 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 the last day of the cancellation period. You must keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records.
9.4 If you cancel your Contract we will:
(a) refund you the price you paid for the Goods, however, please note we will reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Goods, if damage, visible wear, missing components, etc. has been caused by your handling or use of the goods.;
(b) not refund any delivery costs or import taxes or duties you have paid and not be responsible for the costs of returning the Goods to us except in the circumstances of clause 9.5;
(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 it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Goods back from you. 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.
9.5 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, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
9.6 We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the Goods we may refund you in vouchers.
9.7 If the Goods were delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
(a) you must return the Goods 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 the Goods back by contacting our authorised carrier or you can use your own carrier but we recommend that you use a tracked or registered service as you remain responsible for the Goods until we receive them back. Please see our Returns page for our returns address and information about how to arrange a return.
(b) unless the Goods are faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 9.5), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Goods to us. If we have offered to collect the Goods from you, We will charge you the direct cost to Us of collection.
9.8 Because you are an individual consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Goods that are in conformity with this Contract. As an individual consumer, you have legal rights arising from the Consumer Rights Act 2015, or similar legislation, in relation to Goods that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund (under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013) set out in this clause 9 or anything else in these Terms. In particular, if the Goods are faulty or not as described, you have the following legal rights:
• You have 30 days from the date of delivery of the Goods to contact us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone, and request a full refund (including the delivery charges). We will collect the Goods from you at your cost . We will pay any refund no later than 14 days from the date on which we agree that you are entitled to a refund. However, if you would prefer the Goods to be replaced or repaired, this 30 day refund period will stop running during a “waiting period” while the Goods are being repaired or replaced. If the repair or replacement is unsuccessful, you will still have the remainder of the 30 day period, or seven days (whichever is longer), to request a full refund.
• After the expiry of 30 days from the date of delivery of the Goods, you are entitled to request a repair or replacement if the Goods are faulty or not as described. This will be done at our cost and within a reasonable period of time. If the repair or replacement is not possible or unsuccessful, you can request a reasonable price reduction or obtain a refund. However, where you request a refund at any time after six months from the date of delivery of the Goods, we may make a reasonable deduction to take into account the use you have had of the Goods.
Further advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office or similar government consumer protection agency.
This clause 9.9 only applies if you are a business.
9.9 In the event you are a business customer and you want to return the Goods purchased to us because they are faulty or mis-described, you must contact us within 28 days of you receiving the goods and return the Goods to us within the 28 day time period. We will refund the price of the Goods in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us after we have received the goods back. We will process this refund within 28 days of us receiving the goods back.
10 CANCELLATION OR SUSPENSION BY US

(a) we have insufficient stock to deliver the Goods you have ordered;
(b) the delivery service provider does not deliver to your area;
(c) one or more of the Goods you ordered was listed at an incorrect price including due to a typographical error or an error in the pricing information received by us from our suppliers; or

10.2 If we do cancel your Contract, we will notify you by e-mail and will re-credit to your account any sum deducted by us (in respect of Goods provided by us, and delivery services provided by the delivery service provider (unless amounts in respect of delivery are refunded directly by the delivery service provider)), from your debit or credit card as soon as possible but in any event within 14 days after we inform you of our decision to cancel the Contract. We will not be obliged to offer any additional compensation for any loss or disappointment suffered.
This clause 10.3 only applies if you are a business.
10.3 In addition to any other right or remedy we may have, we may by notice in writing to you cancel this Contract or withdraw, suspend or refuse the supply of Goods (or any of them) to you if we become aware of any breach by you of clauses 16, 17 and/or 18 below, or for any other reason whatsoever. In the event of any such cancellation, withdrawal, suspension or refusal, you shall immediately withdraw from sale all and any Goods in your possession or control.
11.1 We will contact you with an estimated delivery date which will be set out in the Dispatch Confirmation. Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 22 for our responsibilities when this happens.

11.2 Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Goods to the address you provide to us.

11.6 If you do choose to cancel your order for late delivery under clause 11.5, you can do so for just some of the Goods or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Goods have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the reasonable costs of this. After you cancel your order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Goods and their delivery.
