2. The Contract Between Us

Only once the Company has accepted the Buyer’s order by email or post as detailed above will a legally binding contract between the Company and the Buyer come into effect.

5.1 The Buyer may cancel its Contract with the Company for the Goods the Buyer orders at any time up to the end of the 7th (seventh) working day from the date the Buyer receives the Goods ordered.

5.2 To cancel the Buyer’s Contract, the Buyer must notify the Company in writing.
5.3 If in any circumstances the Buyer has received the Goods before it cancels the Contract then the Buyer must send the Goods back to the Company’s contact address at the Buyer’s own cost and risk.

5.4 Once the Buyer has notified the Company that the Buyer is cancelling its Contract, any sum debited to the Company from the Buyer’s credit [or debit] card will be re-credited to the Buyer’s account as soon as possible and in any event by the Company within 30 days of the Buyer’s order PROVIDED ALWAYS THAT the Goods in question are returned by the Buyer and received by the Company in the condition the Goods were in when delivered to the Buyer.
