IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER: YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT, RETURN THE PRODUCTS AND REFUND
6.1 You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
- 6.1.1 If the products are faulty or misdescribed. If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the products repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 10 for further information on your rights;
6.1.2 If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at clauses 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 below, the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
- 188.8.131.52 we have told you about an upcoming change to the products or these terms which you do not agree to;
- 184.108.40.206 we have told you about an error in the price or description of the products you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
- 220.127.116.11 there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
- 18.104.22.168 we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons; or
- 22.214.171.124 you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.

- 6.2 In all other cases (ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind). If you do not have any other rights to end the contract you can still contact us before it is completed and tell us you want to end it. A contract for the products is completed when the product is delivered and paid for. If you do this the contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract. Your rights are set out in more detail in this clause 6 below.

We will notify you when you contact us if you do not qualify for our free returns service. If you do not qualify, you must post the products back to us or allow us to collect them from you.

6.9 Deductions from refunds. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
- 6.9.1 We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) 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. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
- 6.9.2 The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of products within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the products delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.

Summary of your key legal rights This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.

Up to 30 days: if your products are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.

However please see clause 11.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
- 11.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
- 11.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.

These phone numbers may be obtained from sources other than the order itself.
- 12.6.5 an unauthorised credit/debit card charge back after an order has been placed is chargeback abuse, even if you are the owner of the card, it is theft and still fraud.

OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
- 16.2 We may at any time assign, transfer, charge, sub-contract or deal in any other manner with all or any of our rights or obligations under the contract.
- 16.3 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. However, if you are a consumer you may transfer our guarantee at clause 9 to a person who has acquired the product. We may require the person to whom the guarantee is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the product.
- 16.4 If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
- 16.5 Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
- 16.6 The contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
- 16.7 If you are a consumer, these terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
- 16.8 If you are a business, these terms and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by English law. We both irrevocably agree that the English courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with a contract or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
