9. YOUR CONSUMER RIGHT OF RETURN AND REFUND
This clause 9 only applies if you are a consumer.
9.1If 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 decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product or receive Services, 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.
9.2However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of:
9.2.1any Product which has been personalised by you or which includes the representation of a date upon it including, but not limited to, trophies, medals, clothing and event numbers.
9.2.2sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these Products are unsealed after you receive them.
9.2.3any Products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
9.3Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we email 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:
|Your Contract||End of the cancellation period|
|Your Contract is for the purchase or Hire of 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.
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Product 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 Product for purchase or Hire which is delivered in instalments on separate days.
multiple Products for purchase or Hire 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.
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the first instalment of your Product or the first of your separate Products on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate Product on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate Products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.
|Your Contract is for the regular delivery of a Product for purchase or Hire over a set period.||The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the first delivery of the Products.
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January in respect of Products to be delivered at regular intervals over a year and you receive the first delivery of your Product 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 Products to arrive during the year.
|Your Contract is for the performance of Services.||The end date is 14 days after the day on which we send you our Order Acknowledgement as described in clause 7.2, or from the date upon which we start supplying Services to you, whichever is the earlier.|
9.4 To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. You can email us at email@example.com or contact our Customer Services team by telephone on 01522 502131 or by post to Jubilee House, 11-13 Whisby Way, Lincoln, LN6 3LQ. If you are emailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by email or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the email or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or email us before midnight on that day.
9.5If you cancel your Contract for the purchase or Hire of Products we will:
9.5.1refund you the price you paid for 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.
9.5.2refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if we offer delivery of a Product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
9.5.3 make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
126.96.36.199if you have received the Product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 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. For information about how to return a Product to us, see clause 9.8;
188.8.131.52if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
9.6If you have authorised us to commence provision of Services which you have ordered, prior to the end of the cancellation period set out in clause 9.3, and you then cancel the Contract under the provisions of clause 9.3 you will be liable to pay us for the Services which we have performed and if we have completed the provisions of Services prior to your cancellation you will be liable to pay us for the full value of the Services as set out in the Contract. We will refund you any price you have paid for the Services which have not been performed by us prior to the date of your cancellation. Any sums due to us which have not been paid to you will be payable within 10 days of the date we request payment.
9.7If you have returned the Products to us under this clause 9 because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
9.8We will refund any sums due to you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the purchase or Hire of the Product or for the provision of Services we may refund you in vouchers.
9.9If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
9.9.1then you must return it 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;
9.9.2unless the Product is 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. If the Product is one which cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the Product to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery.
9.10Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products and/or Services that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 9 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
10.1We will contact you with an estimated delivery date, which will be within 30 days after the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we email you to confirm our acceptance of your order). Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 19 for our responsibilities when this happens.
10.2Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us or complete the provision of Services. Any Products will be your responsibility from that time.
10.3In the case of Products purchased by you, but explicitly not those Hired by you, you own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
This clause 10.4 only applies if you are a consumer, purchasing or Hiring Products.
10.4If we miss the 30 day delivery deadline for any Products then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:
10.4.1we have refused to deliver the Products;
10.4.2delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or 10.4.3 you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
10.5If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 10.4, 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.
10.6If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under clause 10.5 or clause 10.6, 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. After you cancel your Order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.
11. PRODUCT HIRE
The provisions of this clause 11 apply to all products Hired by you from us under these terms and conditions.
