9.1 If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract [under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000] during the period set out below in clause 9.3. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract [under these regulations] is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

(c) perishable goods, such as food, drink or fresh flowers;
(d) software, DVDs or CDs which have a security seal which you have opened or unsealed;
(e) any items which for the sake of hygiene and public health we could not accept back when they have been opened or used;

If the Products have already been delivered to you, you have a period of 7 (seven) working days in which you may cancel, starting from the day after the day you receive the Products. Working days means that Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays are not included in this period.

9.8 If the Products were delivered to you:
(a) you must return the Products to us as soon as reasonably practicable;

9.15 As a consumer, you will always have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by the returns policy in this clause 9 or these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
9.16 Any exchange you request, where the Product sent to you was neither faulty or sent incorrectly, may incur you a second charge.
10.RETURN AFTER 7 DAYS
Any order cancelled after the 7 day cooling-off period at clause 9.3, and where the Product was neither sent to you faulty or incorrectly will incur, in the case of a refund, a 15% restocking fee to cover our administration.
11.1 Your order will be fulfilled by the estimated delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there is an Event Outside Our Control. If we are unable to meet the estimated delivery date because of an Event Outside Our Control, we will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date.

11.5 We aim to deliver within 3 working days but sometimes due to high order volume certain in sales periods please allow 4 days before contacting us. We will attempt to email you if we become aware of an unexpected delay.
11.6 All small orders (under 1KG) are sent out via royal mail standard parcel service unless postal insurance is ordered, in which case it will be sent out via royal mail’s insured service, which will need a signature. If you are not present a card will be left to advise you to pick up your goods from the local sorting office.
11.7 Each item will be attempted to be delivered twice. Failed deliveries after this can be delivered at an extra cost to you or you can collect the package from your local post office collection point.
11.8 Orders of 1KG and over will be sent out with an alternate courier's standard service unless postal insurance is ordered, in which case the parcel will be sent via their tracked and insured service which will require a signature upon delivery. If you are not present the courier will attempt to deliver a further 2 times. If a signature and delivery have not been made after 3 total attempts the re-delivery fee will be the same as that of the initial postage and packaging cost. All couriers we use offer a 'collect from depot' option and the choice of the re-delivery day.
11.9 [If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will leave you a note that the Products have been returned to our premises, in which case, please contact us to rearrange delivery.]

13.1 The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site from time to time.

However, if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered, please see clause Error: Reference source not found for what happens in this event.
13.2 Prices for our Products may change from time to time without notice, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Dispatch Confirmation.

13.5 Our site contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will inform of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
