If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 6, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
7.8 Ending the contract for late delivery. If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 7.6 or clause 7.7, you can cancel your order for any of the goods or reject goods that have been delivered.

8. Your rights to end the contract
8.1 You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
8.1.1 If what you have bought is damaged, not edible or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the goods replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 11;
8.1.2 If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;
8.1.3 If you have just changed your mind about the goods, see clauses 8.3 and 8.4. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods;
8.1.4 In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 8.5.
8.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any goods which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
8.2.1 we have told you about an upcoming change to the goods or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 6.2);
8.2.2 we have told you about an error in the price or description of the goods you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
8.2.3 there is a risk that supply of the goods may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
8.2.4 we have suspended supply of the goods for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 4 weeks; or
8.2.5 you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong, i.e. because we have delivered late (see clause 7.6).
8.3 Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most goods bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
8.4 When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have the right to change your mind if you open any of our goods that are in sealed packaging.
8.5 Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clauses 8.1 and 8.4), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.
9. How to end the contract with us (including if you have changed your mind)
9.1 Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please email us at email@example.com. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
9.2 Returning goods after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after goods have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a return label. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
9.3 When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
9.3.1 If the products are damaged, not edible or misdescribed; or
9.3.2 if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.
9.3.3 if you are exercising your right to change your mind.
In all other circumstances, including when you are exercising your right to change your mind, you must pay the costs of return.
9.4 How we will refund you. We will partially refund you the price of the returned item, or in full for a cancelled contract, by the method you used for payment.
9.5 Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind we may reduce your refund of the price to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.
9.6 When your refund will be made. Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund. We may offer refunds or replacements solely in our discretion. If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days.
10. Our rights to end the contract
10.1 We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract at any time by writing to you if:
10.1.1 you do not, within a reasonable time, arrange for re-delivery of the goods to you or fail to collect them for the depot;
10.2 You must compensate us if you break the contract.

We will issue a partial refund if any item is not in its original condition, is damaged or missing parts for reasons not due to our error.
11.3 Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply goods that are in conformity with this contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the goods. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
Summary of your key legal rights
This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.
The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your goods your legal rights entitle you to the following:
a) Up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.
b) Up to six months: if your goods can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases.
c) Up to six years: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.
11.4 Your obligation to return rejected goods. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject goods you must post them back to us. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a return label.
12. Price and payment
12.1 Where to find the price for the goods. The price of the goods (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the goods advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.4 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the goods you order. The price of the goods does not include, if applicable, duty and/or customs clearing expenses that are incurred – customers are responsible for paying such expenses.
12.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the goods, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the goods in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
12.3 Prices subject to change without notice. Although unlikely, the prices of our goods are subject to change without notice, but once we have accepted your order the price is fixed for that order.
12.4 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the goods' correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the goods' correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
12.5 How you must pay. We accept payment with Amazon Pay, American Express, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Maestro, Mastercard, PayPal, Shop Pay, and Visa. In cooperation with Klarna Bank AB (publ), Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden, we offer you the 'pay later' option. Payment is to be made to Klarna. Further information and Klarnas user terms you can find here. General information on Klarna you can find here. Your personal data is handled in accordance with applicable data protection law and in accordance with the information in Klarnas privacy statement.
12.6 When you must pay. Unless you are using our 'pay later option', you must pay for the goods when you place the order. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the goods to you.
12.7 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
13. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
13.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
13.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the goods including the right to receive goods which are: as described and match information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; supplied with reasonable skill and care; and for defective goods under the Consumer Protection Act 1987
13.3 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the goods for domestic and private use. If you use the goods for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
14. How we may use your personal information
14.1 How we may use your personal information. We will only use your personal information as set out in our privacy notice.
15. Other important terms
15.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this.
15.2 Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
15.3 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
15.4 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the goods, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
15.5 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by Scottish law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods in the Scottish courts. If you live in England you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods in either the English or the Scottish courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods in either the Northern Irish or the Scottish courts.
