    5. Any and all refunds issued under this Clause 11 will include all delivery costs paid by you when the Goods were originally purchased.

  1. Cancelling and Returning Goods if You Change Your Mind
    1. If you are a consumer in the European Union, you have a legal right to a “cooling-off” period within which you can cancel the Contract for any reason.  This period begins once your Order is complete and We have sent you your Order Confirmation, i.e. when the Contract between you and Us is formed.  You may also cancel for any reason before We send the Order Confirmation.  
    2. If you wish to exercise your right to cancel under this Clause 12, you must inform Us of your decision within the cooling-off period. Cancellation by email  is effective from the date on which you send Us your message.  Please note that the cooling-off period lasts for whole calendar days.  If, for example, you send Us an email by 23:59:59 on the final day of the cooling-off period, your cancellation will be valid and accepted.  Please send an e-mail informing of your request to [email protected] Please send us full details of your order and the reason for your cancellation.

  1. Please note that you may lose your legal right to cancel under this Clause 12 in the following circumstances:
      1. If the Goods are sealed for health or hygiene reasons and you have unsealed those Goods after receiving them;
  2. 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 under this Clause 12.
  3. Please contact Us at [email protected] to arrange for a return.  Please note that you must bear the costs of returning Goods to Us if cancelling under this Clause 12.  We will reimburse you for reasonable postage or shipping costs up to Royal Mail 1st class standard postage.  The cost of returning Goods to Us should not normally exceed the cost of having them originally delivered to you if you use the same carrier.

      1. The day on which We receive the Goods back; 
      2. If We have not yet provided an Order Confirmation or have not yet dispatched the Goods, the day on which you inform Us that you wish to cancel the Contract.
  5. Refunds under this Clause 12 may be subject to deductions in the following circumstances:
      1. Refunds may be reduced for any diminished value in the Goods resulting from your excessive handling of them (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 excessively.
      2. Standard delivery charges will be reimbursed in full as part of your refund.  Please note, however, that We cannot reimburse for premium delivery.  We will only reimburse the equivalent standard delivery costs when issuing refunds under this Clause 12.
  6. Refunds under this Clause 12 will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the Goods.
