126.96.36.199 In light of all relevant circumstances, delivery within that time period was essential; or
188.8.131.52 You told Us when ordering the Goods that delivery within that time period was essential.
4.6.5 If You do not wish to cancel Your Order under the terms set out in 4.6.4 or if none of the specified circumstances apply, You may specify a new reasonable fulfilment date that is achievable by Us as indicated within the fulfilment information published on Our Websites.

Please note that if any cancelled Goods are fulfilled to You, You must return them to Us or arrange with Us for their collection.

4.7.1 We must provide Goods that are of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, as described at the time of purchase subject to the terms set out in clause 3.5, in accordance with any pre-contract information We have provided, and that match any samples or models that You have seen or examined (unless We have made You aware of any differences. If any Goods You have purchased do not comply and, for example, have faults or are damaged when You receive them, or if You receive incorrect Goods, please contact Us as soon as reasonably possible to inform Us of the fault, damage or error, and to arrange for a refund, repair or replacement.
4.7.2 In the event that Goods sold by Us to You do not conform with the terms set out in 4.7.1 and We at our sole discretion agree that it is not due to Your operation, use or handling of the Goods that is the cause, beginning on the day that You receive the Goods You have a 30 calendar day right to reject the Goods and to receive a full refund. Alternatively, You may request a repair of the Goods or a replacement. Should We agree to repair or replace the Goods We will bear any associated costs and will carry out the repair or replacement within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience to You. In certain circumstances, where We at our sole discretion decide that a repair or replacement is impossible, disproportionate, or not commercially viable, We reserve the right to instead offer You a full refund.
4.7.3 If You request a repair or replacement during the 30 calendar day rejection period, that period will be suspended while We carry out the repair or replacement and will resume on the day that You receive the replacement or repaired Goods. If less than 7 calendar days remain out of the original period, it will be extended to 7 calendar days. If, after a repair or replacement, the Goods still do not conform (or if We cannot do so as previously described, or have failed to act within a reasonable time or without significant inconvenience to You), You may have the right either to keep the Goods at a reduced price, or to reject them in exchange for a refund. If You exercise the final right to reject the Goods more than six months after You have received the Goods, We may reduce any refund to reflect the use that You have had out of the Goods.
4.7.4 Please note that You will not be eligible to a repair, replacement, or refund under the terms set out in 4.7.2 or 4.7.3 if We informed You of the fault(s), damage or other problems with the Goods before Your purchase of the them and it is because of the same issue that You now wish to return them; if You have purchased the Goods for an unsuitable purpose that is neither obvious nor made known to Us and the problem has resulted from Your use of the Goods for that purpose; or if the problem is the result of normal wear and tear, misuse or intentional or careless damage. Please also note that You may not return Goods to Us under the terms set out in 4.7.2 or 4.7.3 merely because You have changed Your mind.
4.7.6 If You wish to return Goods to Us for any reason, You must notify Us within 14 calendar days from the date of fulfilment of the Goods, using the Returns Authorisation Process available on Our Websites.

4.7.8 Where You return Goods to Us without prior notification or without using the Returns Authorisation Process, or if the item is untraceable, refunds cannot be provided.

If You return Goods to Us without prior notification or authorisation by Us, You will be liable for any costs which You incur.
4.7.9 If a refund is required due to a product being returned to Us We will only issue that refund once We have received the returned Goods. Refunds will be processed as soon as possible and within 14 calendar days of receipt of the returned Goods unless We have reason to challenge Your reason for returning the Goods.
4.7.10 Where You return all of the Goods from Your Order to Us in full and You notified Us of Your intention to do so using the Returns Authorisation Process and all those Goods returned have been returned to Us for a valid reason, You will also be refunded any delivery charges paid by You when the Goods were originally purchased. If You return only part of Your Order to Us You will not be entitled to any refund of delivery charges paid by You when the Goods were originally purchased.
4.8 Cancelling and Returning Goods if You Change Your Mind
4.8.1 You have the right to a “cooling off” period within which You can cancel the Contract for any reason. This period begins once the first Order Acceptance Event occurs in relation to Your Order, or 70 hours after Us sending You an Order Processing Notification where We have not subsequently informed You of our intention to cancel all or part of Your Order, whichever is the earlier, i.e. when the Contract between You and Us is formed.
4.8.2 If the Goods are being delivered to You in a single instalment (whether single or multiple items), the cooling off period ends 14 calendar days after the day on which You receive the Goods.
4.8.3 If the Goods are being delivered in separate instalments on separate days, the cooling off period ends 14 calendar days after the day on which You receive the final instalment of Goods.
4.8.4 If You wish to exercise Your right to cancel during the “cooling off” period, You must inform Us of Your decision within the cooling off period using the Returns Authorisation Process available on Our Websites. Please note that the cooling off period lasts for whole calendar days. If, for example, You notify Us of Your intention to return Goods to Us using the Returns Authorisation Process at 23:59 on the final day of the cooling off period, Your cancellation will be valid and accepted.
4.8.5 Prior to any cancellation by You under the “cooling off” period You must take reasonable care of the Goods and must not use them otherwise You will be unable to cancel Your Order under the terms set out in 4.8.1.
4.8.6 Please note that You may lose Your legal right to cancel in the following circumstances:
184.108.40.206 If the Goods are sealed for health or hygiene reasons and You have unsealed those Goods after receiving them;
220.127.116.11 If the Goods consist of sealed audio or video recordings (e.g. CD or DVD) or sealed computer software and You have unsealed the Goods after receiving them;
18.104.22.168 If the Goods have been inseparably mixed with other items (according to their nature) after You have received them;
22.214.171.124 Goods have been personalised or made to Your specification; and
126.96.36.199 You have assembled the Goods and/or started using the Goods;
188.8.131.52 The Goods were made to order or were sourced by Us specifically for You.
4.8.7 Please ensure that You return Goods to Us no more than 14 calendar days after the day on which You have informed Us that You wish to cancel.
4.8.8 You may return Goods to Us or We may at Our sole discretion collect the Goods from You (depending on the type of Goods and how the Goods were delivered). Details on how to return the Goods to Us will be included with Your Goods. Please note that You must bear the costs of returning Goods to Us if cancelling during the “cooling off” period if You are returning the Goods to Us because You have changed Your mind and do not wish to purchase the Goods. We will also charge You the direct cost to Us of collection of the Goods if We are required to collect the Goods.
4.8.9 Refunds that We agree to pay to You in relation to Your cancellation during the “cooling off” period will be issued to You within 14 calendar days of the following:
184.108.40.206 The day on which We receive the Goods back; or
220.127.116.11 If We have not yet despatched the Goods to You, the day on which You inform Us that You wish to cancel the Contract.
4.8.10 Refunds may be reduced for any diminished value in the Goods resulting from Your excessive handling of them. For the purpose of this clause only, “excessive handling” means any more handling than is reasonable required to ascertain the nature and characteristics of the Goods in question (e.g. no more than would be permitted in a shop). Please note that if We issue a refund before We have received the Goods and have had a chance to inspect them, We may subsequently charge You an appropriate sum if We find that the Goods have been handled in a way that would otherwise entitle Us to reduce Your refund or refuse to issue a refund altogether.
4.8.11 Should You exercise Your right to cancel during the “cooling off” period, We will not reimburse You for premium or expedited delivery charges. We will only reimburse the equivalent standard delivery costs when issuing a refund so You may lose the difference between the value You paid for delivery charges and the value of the standard charge.
