Your Rights – Consumers
7.1 Subject always to clause 7.3, if you are a consumer, you may cancel a Contract (or part of a Contract in relation to specific Products) from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation in respect of such Product(s) which is when the Contract between us is formed. If the Product(s) have already been delivered to you, you may cancel the Contract at any time within seven working days, beginning on the day after the day you received the Products. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep a Product you have Ordered, you can let us know of your decision to cancel the Contract (or part of the Contract) and receive a refund. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our Delivery & Returns Policy.

a) made to measure, customised or personalised Products;

which you have purchased from us through our Website.

8.3 Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us when you made your Order.
8.4 It is your responsibility to ensure that the delivery address provided to us by you is correct.

We will not charge you extra delivery costs for this. However, if you ask us to deliver the Order in instalments, we may charge you extra delivery costs. Each instalment delivered by us shall constitute a separate Contract. If we are late delivering an instalment or one instalment is faulty, that will not entitle you to cancel any other instalment.

If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the Order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
