You have the statutory right under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 to change your mind and cancel your order at any time up to 14 days after the day you receive your product (“Cooling-off Period”).

If you do want to cancel your order, you must contact us in writing (preferably by email at firstname.lastname@example.org) during the Cooling-off Period stating as a minimum your order number and your wish to cancel, so that we can provide you with the correct return shipping address.

You remain responsible for arranging, and the cost of, the safe return of the product to us. We may, at our discretion, offer to arrange collection of the product at your cost.
You must return the product back to us within 14 days of the end of the Cooling-off Period.

If you have opened/unwrapped the product, you must re-package it again carefully to ensure that it is protected during transport.
If you comply with your legal obligations, we will refund the price of the returned product together with any standard delivery charges that were paid by you (but not where you chose a special or faster delivery method). We are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the product if it is not received back in the same condition as when delivered to you.

Where changes are possible, we will ask you to confirm any change to the price, delivery, or anything else before going ahead.
Any refunds will only be made back to the original method of payment.
