Except as set out below, if you cancel this Contract, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us).

 

Deduction for Goods supplied

We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any Goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you (i.e. handling the Goods beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristic and functioning of the Goods e.g. it goes beyond the sort of handling that might be reasonable allowed in a show).  This is because you are liable for that loss and, if that deduction is not made, you must pay us the amount of that loss.

 

Timing of reimbursement

If we have not offered to collect the Goods, we will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than:

  • 14 days after we receive back from you any Goods supplied , or

  • (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have sent back the Goods.

 

If we have offered to collect the Goods or if no Goods were supplied, we will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this Contract.

We will make the reimbursement using the name means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.

 

Returning Goods

If you have received Goods in connection with the Contract which you have cancelled, you must send back the Goods or hand them over to us without delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate to us your cancellation of this Contract.  Please contact us for the return address.  The deadline is met if you send back the Goods before the period of 14 days has expired. 

You agree that you will have to bear the cost of returning the Goods if you have simply changed your mind.  We will refund the cost of delivery (standard delivery), if you are returning the Goods because of an error on our part.
