9. YOUR CONSUMER RIGHT OF RETURN AND 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 under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below in clause 9.3. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep a Product, 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.
9.2 However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of any custom-made products or products made to your specification or clearly personalised.
9.3 You may cancel a Contract from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, which is when the Contract between you and us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered. If your Contract is for:
9.3.1 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.
9.3.2 one Product which is delivered in instalments on separate days or 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.

The easiest way to do this is to contact our Customer Services telephone line on 01462 423758 or e-mail us at email@example.com. You may wish to keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or the letter to us. If you call us to notify us of your cancellation, then your cancellation is effective from the date you telephone us. If your Product is purchased as a gift, we will accept returns from the gift recipient provided the return is made in the period specified above and you have notified us who the gift recipient is in your order however any refunds will only be made to the credit card or debit card used to pay for the Products.
9.5 If your Product has been dispatched and is not faulty or mis-described, you will receive a refund of the price you paid for the Product.
9.6 We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 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. Please note that refunds will only be made to the purchaser of 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.
9.7 If you have returned the Products to us under this clause because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of a defective Product in full, any applicable delivery charges.
9.8 Any refunds paid will only be made to the credit or debit card used to pay for the Products.
9.9 If the Products were delivered to you:
9.9.1you must return the Products to us as soon as reasonably practicable, but in any event within 14 days after you notify us you wish to cancel the Contract, and the Products must be returned unused in a saleable condition.
9.9.2unless the Products are faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 9.7), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us or, where relevant, the cost of us collecting the Products from you.
9.9.3until the Products are returned to or collected by us, you have a legal obligation to keep the Products in your possession and to take reasonable care of the Products. If the Product is a gift, and we have agreed to collect the Product from the gift recipient you must ensure that the gift recipient takes reasonable care of the Product whilst in their possession.
9.10 Details of your legal right to cancel and an explanation of how to exercise it are provided in the Dispatch Confirmation.
9.11 As a consumer, you will always have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by the returns policy in this clause 9 or these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
10.1 Your order will be fulfilled by the estimated delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there is an Event Outside Our Control. If we are unable to meet the estimated delivery date because of an Event Outside Our Control, we will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date.
10.2 Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us.
10.3 If no one is available at your address to take delivery, the Products will be returned to the local depot of our delivery company and a further attempt will be made to deliver the Products to your address. If we cannot deliver the Products, we will leave you a note that the Products have been returned to our premises, in which case, please contact us to rearrange delivery.
10.4 The Products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.
10.5 Clauses 10.5 and 10.6 only apply if you are a consumer. If we do not deliver any Products within 30 days of us sending you the Dispatch Confirmation for those Products then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:
10.5.1 we have refused to deliver the Products;
10.5.2 delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
10.5.3 you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under this clause 10.5, 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.
If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under clause 10.5 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 or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this.
