How the contract is formed between you and us
Our order constitutes an offer to us to buy a product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email order confirmation. The contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation. The contract will relate only to those products we have confirmed in the order confirmation.
If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel a contract at any time within seven working days, beginning on the day after you received the products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the products in accordance with our refunds policy.
To cancel a contract, you must inform us in writing. You must also return the products to us as soon as reasonably practicable, and at your own cost. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
