Your Right to Cancel Your Order and Return Goods

You have the right to cancel your order...

  • Before you receive your goods.
  • If goods are lost in transit.
  • Up to 7 Working-Days after receipt of your goods, for any reason (the so-called 'Cooling-Off Period').
  • If received goods are 'Mis-described' (under the Trade Descriptions Act 1968).

You have the right to cancel your order and receive a full refund, including Post and Packaging, provided you contact us in writing (by letter or e-mail) within 7 Working-Days of receipt of your order if the goods arrive, or in other cases, within 30 calendar-days of receipt of your order by us.

The 'Effective Data of the Cancellation' is the date on which we receive written notice from you of the cancellation.

It may be helpful to you, but not obligatory, in case of any dispute, to keep some evidence that you have sent notification of your cancellation, such as Proof of Posting or a printed copy of an e-mail. We do not insist on this.

Your money will be returned to you as soon as possible following cancellation of your order, and certainly within 30 calendar-days of the cancellation.

Where goods have been purchased using a credit-card, debit-card or via Paypal, your refund will be made by crediting the value of your purchase back to the original credit-card, debit-card or Paypal account via the Paypal company.

Duration of Contract

The contract between buyer and seller begins when a valid order reaches us and ends 7 working days after receipt of goods by you (the end of the 'cooling-off period', where you can return goods without question) or when any refund has been made to you.

Legislation Governing Online Selling

Goods and services sold on the internet from the UK are covered by the UK Government's 'Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000', sometimes referred to on this website by the abbreviated name 'Distance Selling Regulations'.

As people who buy goods over the internet are not able to inspect the goods before buying them, as a face-to-face buyer would be able to do, the Distance Selling Regulations give you more rights to cancel orders, return goods, etc.

The full text of these regulations is available at :-

A more-readable guide, 'Home shopping: Distance Selling Regulations' (pdf 127 kb), can be downloaded from:

The guide contains a list of other regulations which apply, including, but not limited to :-

  • Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2000
  • The Sale of Goods Act 1979
  • The Trade Descriptions Act 1968
