If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, you must 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) as compensation for the costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract or 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

    1. To end the contract with us, please let us know in writing.

    4. We will pay the costs of return, if the products are faulty or misdescribe

    7. Subject to clause 8.3 if you are exercising your right to change your mind, we may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods on receipt. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
    8. The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer.

    2. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s 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.

You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
    5. 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.

Our liability to you shall be limited to the cost of the products you have purchased from us. 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.
    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.
