Terms and Conditions

The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 generally apply to sales to consumers made by sellers acting in the course of a business, which have been made at a distance. In other words, where there's no face-to-face contact between the seller and the consumer before the contract is made. The Distance Selling Regulations apply to most items purchased via this web site. The Regulations also provide a period of seven working days after the date of receipt within which the consumer can cancel the contract (often referred to as the "cooling off" period) and get their money back. The consumer can be asked to return the goods at their own expense, but only if the seller informed them of this requirement before the contract was made (see terms above under returns section). As a business seller we have provided the information required under the Distance Selling Regulations (as discussed above). The cancelation rights do not apply to certain items including software, audio or video recordings that have been unsealed, perishable goods such as food or flowers, or items that have been made to order. To get a general idea of the laws governing distance sales, we recommend that you review BERR’s summary of the Regulations.
