8. YOUR CANCELLATION AND REFUND RIGHTS IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER
This clause 8 only applies if you are a consumer.
8.1 If 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 8.3. 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, 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.
8.2 However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of any bespoke, made-to-measure or custom-made products. Unfortunately, as bespoke products are made to your requirements, you will not be able to cancel your order once made (but this will not affect your legal rights as a consumer in relation to bespoke/made to measure Products that are faulty or not as described).
8.3 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Order Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail 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:
8.4 To cancel a Contract, you must contact us in writing by sending an e-mail to email@example.com or by sending a letter to RMD1, River Tamar Way, Holsworthy, Devon, EX22 6HL. You may wish to keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records.
8.5 If you cancel your Contract we will:
(a) refund 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.
(b) refund 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.
(c) make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(i) if 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 8.8;
(ii) if 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.
8.6 If you have returned the Products to us under this clause 8 because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of a defective Product in full, any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
8.7 We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the Product we may refund you in vouchers.
8.8 If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
(a) then 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. You can either send it back, return it to us in-store or hand it to our authorised carrier. Please see our Website for our returns address;
(b) unless the Product is faulty or not as described , 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; Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products 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 8 or anything else in these Terms.
9. YOUR CANCELLATION AND REFUND RIGHTS IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS
This clause 9 only applies if you are a business.
9.1 If you are a business and change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep a Product, you can notify us of your request to return the item. Returns will be accepted at our discretion.
9.2 In the event that we accept your request to return a Product, we reserve the right to charge 40% of the invoice total by way of a restocking charge.
9.3 Cancellation rights under this clause 9 do not apply in the case of any made-to-measure or custom-made products.
9.4 To request to cancel a Contract, you must contact us in writing by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a letter to RMD1, River Tamar Way, Holsworthy, Devon, EX22 6HL.

If you returned the Products to us because they were faulty or mis-described, please see clause 9.6.
9.6 If you have returned the Products to us under this clause 9 because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of a defective Product in full, any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
9.7 If we agree to the return of the Product(s):
(a) you must return the Products to us as soon as reasonably practicable; 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 an Order 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 regular delivery of a Product over a set period. Your Contract
Your Contract is for a single Product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days). Your Contract is for either of the following:
one Product which is delivered in instalments on separate days.
multiple Products which are delivered on separate days
End of the cancellation period
The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product.
Example: if we provide you with an Order 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.
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 an Order 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.

(c) you have a legal obligation to keep the Products in your possession and to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession.
10.1 We will contact you with an estimated delivery date, which with the exception of bespoke Products will be within 30 days after the date of the Order Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your

(a) we have refused to deliver the Products;
(b) delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
(c) you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
10.8 If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 10.7, 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.
10.9 Please note that bespoke Products require additional work and so will not be delivered within the 30 day deadline. We will contact you with a delivery date for any bespoke Products as soon as reasonably possible. 10.10 If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under clause 10.7 or clause 10.8, 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.
