    • If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will refund you for the product.

    • We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
    • If you are not at home when the product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.
    • When you become responsible for the goods. A product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address (or email address in the case of a Covid Recovery Certificate) you gave us.
    • When you own goods. You own a product which is goods once we have received payment in full.

6. Your rights to end the contract

    • Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online, you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
    • When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
        1. products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them; and

      • How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment,, but this may be subject to deductions for justifiable costs and you may also have to pay the costs of return (if applicable).
