      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.

  10. Your right to end the contract
    1. You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
      1. If the product is faulty or misdescribed. If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 13 for further information on your rights;
      2. If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (i) to (v) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
        1. we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to;
        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;
        3. there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
        4. we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons; or
        5. you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong. Your rights are set out in more detail in this clause 8 below.
      3. If you have just changed your mind about the product (exercising your right to change your mind under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). You have 14 days starting from the day after the day you (or someone you nominate) receive the products to change your mind. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any products. Your rights are set out in more detail in this clause 8 below.
      4. In all other cases (ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind). If you do not have any other rights to end the contract 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. Your rights are set out in more detail in this clause 8 below.
    2. When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
      1. any custom-made products or products made to your specification or clearly personalised;
    3. How to cancel. To cancel a Contract, please contact us in writing to tell us by sending an e-mail via our contact form, or by sending a letter to Unit 1A.1, North Road, Marchwood Ind Park, Southampton, SO40 4BL. You may wish to keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you sent us the e-mail or posted the letter to us.
    4. Returning products after ending the contract. 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 them back to us. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the products within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
    5. When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
      1. if the products are faulty or misdescribed;
      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.

        In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
    6. When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible.  If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:
      1. 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.
      2. In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.
    7. We refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay.
    8. Deductions from refunds. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
      1. We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the products, 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 products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
      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. Delivery
    1. Delivery charges. Our delivery charges are displayed on our site.
    2. Delivery Date. We will deliver the products to you by the estimated delivery date set out on our site's shipping and delivery page.
    3. We are not responsible for delays outside our control. 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.
    4. Delivery will be completed when we deliver the products to the address you gave us.
    5. If no one is available at your address to take delivery, our third party delivery provider may leave you a note, in which case, please follow the instructions provided to rearrange delivery.

    1. The prices of the products will be as quoted on our site from time to time.

However if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered, please see clause 11.5 for what happens in this event.
    2. Prices for our products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Dispatch Confirmation.
    3. The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
    4. The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as quoted on our site from time to time.
    5. Our site contains a large number of products. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the products you have ordered we will inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

  18. Other important terms

    5. Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. 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.
    6. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts.
