5. YOUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing for delivery or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the changes.
6. OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
6.1 If we cannot supply the products that you have ordered, we will contact you to establish if you would like us to substitute the product with a like product and will inform you of any difference in charges. If you do not agree to the change then we will provide you with a refund of the money you have paid to us.
7. PROVIDING THE PRODUCT
7.1 The costs of the products and delivery charges will be set out to you during the order process.
7.2 During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you, which is usually within 7 working days from the date of your order and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.
7.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our delivery 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.
7.4 If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.
7.5 If, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivey from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery we may end the contract and clause 9.2 will apply.
7.6 You have legal rights if we deliver any products late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any products then you may treat the contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
(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.
7.7 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 Clause 7.8, 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.
7.8 If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under Clause 7.6 or Clause 7.7, 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 will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this.
7.9 The product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us or from when you collected the product from us.
7.10 You own the products once we have received payment in full.
7.11 We may suspend supply of the products if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the products when you are supposed to (see clause 11.4) and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products. We will not charge you for the products during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the products we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 11.5).
8. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
8.1 You can always end the contract for supply of a product before it has been delivered, and paid for. You may contact us to end your contract for a product at any time before we have delivered it and you have paid for it, but in some circumstances we may charge you for doing this, as described below. Of course, you always have rights where a product is faulty or mis-described (see clause 10, "If there is a problem with the products").
8.2 If you are ending the contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided or have not been provided properly and you may also be entitled to further compensation. The reasons are:

(e) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong[(but see clause 7.10 in relation to your rights to on end the contract if we deliver late].
8.3 If you end the contract after products have been dispatched to you and (because we cannot recall them) they are delivered to you, you must return them to us. 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 are exercising your legal rights to end the contract because of something we have done wrong then we will pay the costs of return. In all other circumstances you must pay the costs of return]

(b) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or collect them from us; or
(d) OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES.
9.2 You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 9.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you £10 as compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
9.3 We may withdraw the product. We may write to you to let you know that we are going to stop providing the product.

Summary of your key legal rights
This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.
The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected life of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following:
up to 30 days: if your item is faulty, then you can get a refund.
up to six months: if your faulty item can't be replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases.
up to six years: if the item can be expected to last up to six years you may be entitled to a repair or replacement, or, if that doesn't work, some of your money back.
10.3 Your obligation to return rejected products. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must either return them to us or contact us and we will arrange to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage.
10.4 If you change your mind about a product either before it is delivered or within 14 days of receiving it, please contact us to arrange for a full refund. If you have received the unwanted product you must return it to us at your own expense.
11. PRICE AND PAYMENT
11.1 The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price set out in our price list in force at the date of your order unless we have agreed another price in writing. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 11.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
11.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. 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 (including delivery costs) in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
11.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. 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 terminate the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require you to return the product at our expense.
11.4 We accept payment with debit or credit card. You must pay for the products (including delivery) at the time of submitting your order. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the products to you.
12. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
12.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill[, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable]. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
12.2 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for private use to you acting as a consumer and therefore we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
13. HOW WE MAY USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
13.1 We will use the personal information you provide to us:
(a) to supply the products to you;
(b) to process your payment for the products; and
(c) if you agreed to this during the order process, to inform you about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving these communications at any time by contacting us.
14. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
14.1 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. If you are unhappy with the transfer you may contact us to end contract for supply of the product within 14 days of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for products not provided.
14.2. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
14.3 This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end this contract or make any changes to these terms].
14.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs 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.
14.5 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.
14.6 These terms are governed by English law and all sales made under these Terms and Conditions are subject to the Licensing Act 2003. We will try to solve any disagreements quickly and efficiently. If you are not happy with the way we deal with any disagreement 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.
