Cancellation and Returns

If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel your order with us under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 at any time up until 14 working days after you have received the products or services that you ordered (if you receive your order in instalments, this means 14 days after your receipt of the final instalment). Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. Your legal rights are not affected by the Terms and Conditions.

You may also cancel a Contract if an event outside our reasonable control takes place which affects our ability to supply the products for a period of at least 14 days and as a result you decide that you no longer wish us to supply them.

If you wish to exercise your right to cancel a Contract after your order has been dispatched, we will refund the original purchase price and if you have paid for delivery, our standard delivery charge, provided that you have notified us in writing no longer than 14 working days after you received the products that you ordered and provided that you have taken reasonable care of them, not used them and that you return them undamaged and unused in the products’ original and undamaged packaging. Please see our Returns Policy for more information. Please note that we are permitted by law to retain sums to reflect any reduction in the value of the products if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.

Please note that your right to cancel a Contract and return products does not apply in the case of any products which are made to your specification or personalised, or products such as newspapers, periodicals or magazines, perishable goods (such as food, drink or fresh flowers), or software, DVDs or CDs which have a security seal which you have opened or unsealed, unless such products are faulty or not as described.

If the products which you are cancelling were delivered to you, you must return them to us as soon as reasonably practicable (and no later than 14 days after you let us know of the cancellation). Please see our Returns Policy for further information. If we agree to collect the goods, we will collect the products from the address to which they were delivered. We will contact you to arrange a suitable date for collection. Unless the products are faulty or not as described or were incorrectly supplied, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the products to us or, where relevant, the cost of us collecting them from you. If you are not in, or the goods are not available for collection on the agreed date of a collection from you, you will be responsible for any additional collection costs that may be incurred.

If you return the product in a new, unused and resaleable condition without its original packaging, then we will give you a refund of the price after making a deduction for our reasonable costs for the provision of new packaging.

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.

Prices do not include delivery charges, which are quoted on the website from time to time. You can choose to pay extra for our guaranteed next day delivery service, however, please note that this service is not available for certain products and certain delivery locations.

The website contains a number of products and it is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the products may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the products you have ordered we will 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. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
