3.2 If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product.

8.1.2 to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements. These changes will not affect your use of the product.
8.2 In addition, as we informed you in the description of the product on our website, we may make the following changes to these terms or the product, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract and receive a full refund before the changes take effect:
9.2 During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you. If the products are ongoing subscriptions, we will also tell you during the order process when and how you can end the contract. If no delivery date is specified, we will deliver the products to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.
9.3 If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
9.4 If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, our courier will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery in accordance with their terms.
9.5 If after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 12.2 will apply.

9.6.1 we have refused to deliver the products;
9.6.2 delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
9.6.3 you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
9.7 If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause9.6, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
9.8 If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 9.6 or clause 9.7, you can cancel your order for any of the products or reject products that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those products (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled products and their delivery. If the products have been delivered to you, you must either return them in person to where you bought them, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you.

If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 12.2will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
9.12 We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:
9.12.1 deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
9.12.2 update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
9.12.3 make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 8).
9.13 We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the product we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for products while they are suspended. You may contact us to end the contract for a product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 10 days and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract.

10.1.2 if you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 10.2;

10.2.1 we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause8.2);
10.2.2 we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
10.2.3 there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
10.2.4 we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 10 days; or
10.2.5 you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
10.3 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.
10.4 You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
10.4.1 products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them;
10.4.2 sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these products are unsealed after you receive them; and
10.4.3 any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
10.5 How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
10.5.1 If so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order.
10.5.2 if so you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless:

(b) In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the first delivery of the goods.
10.6 If you do not have any other rights to end the contract (see clause 10.1), you can still contact us before it is completed and tell us you want to end it. If you do this the contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.
11.2 If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must post the goods back to us. Please call customer services on 01388 663251 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a return stamped addressed envelope or to arrange collection by courier. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
11.3 We will pay the costs of return:
11.3.1 if the products are faulty or misdescribed;
11.3.2 if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong; or
In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
11.4 We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
11.5 If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
11.5.1 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.
11.5.2 The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. 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.
11.6 We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:
11.6.1 If the products are goods and we have not offered to collect them, 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. For information about how to return a product to us, see clause 9.8.
11.6.2 In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.
12.1.1 you do not make any payment to us immediately;
12.1.2 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; or
12.1.3 you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or collect them from us.
12.2 If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 12.1we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
14.2 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.
14.3 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, 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.
14.4 We accept payment with MasterCard, Visa, Paypal, Maestro and cheque. When you must pay depends on what product you are buying: 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. If you pay by cheque, products will not be allocated until clearance of the payment.
14.5 If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know.
15 Import duty
15.1 If you order products from our site for delivery outside the UK, they may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact the local customs office in the jurisdiction within which delivery is to take place for further information before placing your order.
15.2 Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the products are destined and it is your responsibility to make yourself aware of such laws and regulations. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws.

17.1.2 to process your payment for the products; and
17.1.3 if you agreed to this during the order process, to inform you about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving these at any time by contacting us.
18.2 We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
18.3 You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
18.4 This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
18.5 Each of the clauses 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.
18.6 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.
18.7 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.
