6. Your rights to end the contract
6.1 Your rights to end the contract are set out below:
(a) 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 8.2;
(b) if you want to end the contract because of something we have done wrong, see clause 6.2;
(c) if you have just changed your mind about the product, see clauses 6.3 and 6.11; or
(d) in all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 6.4.
6.2 If you are ending a contract for a reason set out 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:
(a) there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; or
(b) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
6.3 For most products bought online, you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund, but this may be subject to deductions.
6.4 Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind, you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract is completed when the product is paid for and delivered. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. 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 reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.
6.5 To end the contract with us, please let us know by calling +44(0)1908 375411 or emailing email@example.com. Please provide your name, home address, phone number, email address, order number and details of your order.

6.7 No charge will apply to you for any UK returns (inside the UK), but charges will apply for International returns (outside the UK). For further information, please check our website.
6.8 Where you have paid for a return, we will refund you in full for the costs of return if the products are faulty or misdescribed (see clause 6.1(a)) or if you are ending the contract because of something that we have done wrong (see clause 6.1(b)). In all other circumstances, you will not be entitled to a refund of the costs of return.
6.9 We will refund you the price you paid for the products (including any costs of return, where applicable) by the method you used for payment.
6.10 We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you and have checked the product. If your product does not arrive with us for any reason, you will still be entitled to a refund if you provide us with evidence that you sent the product back to us (such as proof of postage). In such event, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which you provide us with such evidence (to our reasonable satisfaction).
6.11 If you are exercising your right to change your mind (see clause 6.1(c)):
(a) 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 you 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; and
(b) the maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer.
7. Our rights to end the contract

7.3 We may email you to let you know that we are going to stop providing the product. We will let you know at the earliest opportunity in advance of our stopping the supply of the product and will refund any sums you have paid in advance for products which will not be provided.
