                8. Cancellation policy

                  If you are a consumer ("consumer" means you are acting for purposes which are wholly or mainly outside your trade, business, craft or profession), you have a legal right to cancel a contract during the period set out below. 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, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the contract, return the product, and receive a refund.

                  However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of:

                  1. any products identified as non-cancellable on the product page;
                  2. any products that are made to your specifications or that have been clearly personalised;
                  3. any products that have become unsealed following delivery and, as a result, are unsuitable for return due to health of hygiene reasons
                  4. sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these products are unsealed after you after delivery;
                  5. any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery; and
                  6. any donations.

                  Your right to cancel will expire 14 days after the day on which you (or the person you nominate) received the goods, or received the final item from an order for several items.

                  9. Returns policy

                    If you cancel this contract, we will refund all payments received from you, including the costs of standard delivery only. Where permitted to do so, we will reduce your refund to reflect any reduction for the loss in the value of the goods which has resulted from your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop, including situations where the handling has gone beyond what is necessary to establish the nature and identity of the product.

                    We will make the refund as soon as possible, and no later than 14 days from the day you return any goods, or provide evidence of return. We may withhold the refund until we have received the returned goods, or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.

                    We will make the refund using the same means of payment that you used for the initial purchase unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. You will not incur any fees as a result of the refund.

                    You will send back the goods without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your cancellation of this contract to us. The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 14 days has expired.

                    If goods are faulty you can request a replacement instead of a refund. 

                    Where the goods are not faulty, you will be responsible for organising the return and paying its costs.

                    If you have any questions or complaints about your purchase, please contact us on the details listed above.

                      If the faulty product can be expected to last up to six years you may be entitled to a repair or replacement, or, if that does not work, some of your money back.

                      If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you.
