If you are a consumer then for most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
8.2. How long do consumers have to change their minds? You have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods in question.
9. Other circumstances under which you can end your contract
9.1. You may end your contract with us for the reasons set out at 9.1.1 to 9.1.3 below. In these circumstances, 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:

9.1.2. there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
9.1.3. you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.

10.1. Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:
10.1.1. Email. Contact our customer services team by email at [email protected]. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
10.1.2. By post. Print off the form at Schedule 1 and post it to us at the address on the form. Or simply write to us at that address, including details of what you bought, when you ordered or received it and your name and address.

You must allow us to collect them from you. Please contact customer services on [email protected] to arrange collection.

10.3.1. if the products are faulty or misdescribed; or

10.4. What we charge for collection. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
10.5. How we will refund you. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms we will refund you the price you paid for the products (including any delivery costs), by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
10.6. When we may make deduction from refunds if you are exercising your right as a consumer to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind as a consumer we may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) 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.
10.7. When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right as a consumer to change your mind then:
10.7.1. If we have not offered to collect the goods in question, your refund will be made within 14 days from 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.
10.7.2. In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.
11. Our rights to end the contract
11.1. We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:
11.1.1. you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 14 days of us reminding you that payment is due;
11.1.2. you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the products, for example, a suitable delivery address; or
11.1.3. you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or collect them from us.
11.2. You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 11.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided. However, we may deduct an appropriate sum to compensate us for any extra costs and expenses we can show that we have incurred as a direct consequence of you breaking the contract.
11.3. We reserve the right to end our contract where we have accepted an order in error. We will use reasonable care to ensure that we do not accept orders which we are unable to fulfil. However, sometimes error can occur. If we have accepted your order in error, under circumstances where we are not able to fulfil it (for example because we do not have sufficient stock to meet your order) we may cancel your order and end our contract with you. However, we will refund to you any sums you have paid in respect of the product or products in question.
12. Price and payment
12.1. Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
12.2. 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.
12.3. 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. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
12.4. When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with most major credit cards. You must pay for the products before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the products to you.
13. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you as a consumer
13.1. We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
13.2. We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products as summarised at clause 7.1.
13.3. We are not liable for business losses. We only supply products under these Terms & Conditions to you for domestic and private use. Therefore, we will not be liable to you for any business losses arising from our breach of contract (including loss of profit).
14. How we may use your personal information
15. Other important terms
15.1. We may transfer this Agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We may also sub-contract performance of aspect of our contract with you to other companies (for example, we sub-contract delivery of your products to a third party delivery company).
15.2. 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, consumers may always transfer our guarantee at clause 7 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 relevant product.
15.3. Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as explained in clause 15.2 in respect of our guarantee. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
15.4. If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. 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.
15.5. Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. 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.
15.6. Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. 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.
