7. Refunds and Return policy
7.1 Right of withdrawal
EXCEPTIONS TO THE RIGHT TO CANCEL The statutory right to cancel, as laid out in the Consumer Contracts Regulations, does not exist for the supply of goods that are made to the consumers specifications or are clearly personalised. In other words, if you ordered an item with a dedication as well as a signature, then the following does NOT apply.
You have the right to withdraw from this contract within 14 days without giving any reason. The withdrawal period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third-party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the goods. To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (for example a letter sent by post, fax, or email). Our contact details can be found below. You may use the Cancellation Text below but it is not obligatory. We will communicate to you an acknowledgement of receipt of such a withdrawal on a durable medium (for example by email) without delay. To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.
I/We hereby give notice that I cancel my contract of sale of the following goods.
(please include a description of the goods.)
Ordered on (dd/mm/yyyy)
Received on (dd/mm/yyyy)
Name of consumer:
Address of consumer:
Signature of consumer if sent via physical mail
7.2 Effects of withdrawal
If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. You shall send back the goods or hand them over to us or a person authorised by us to receive the goods, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your withdrawal from this contract to us. The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 14 days has expired. If you requested to begin the performance of services during the withdrawal period, you shall pay us an amount which is in proportion to what has been provided until you have communicated to us your withdrawal from this contract, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract. Please note that there are some legal exceptions to the right to withdraw, and some items can therefore not be returned or exchanged. We will let you know if this applies in your particular case.
7.3 Return cost
You will have to bear the direct cost of returning the goods.
7.4 Consumer’s liability for diminished value of the goods
We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.
