  1. Your right of return and refund – Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations

If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a contract under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations during the period set out below.

  • any custom-made bespoke products or products made to your specification or clearly personalised; or
  • products which you have opened or unsealed.

Working days means that Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays are not included in this period.

Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
