(d)        If you are ending a contract for a reason set out below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided. The reasons are:

(i)         we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;

(ii)        the supply of the products will be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;

(iii)       you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong (including because we have delivered late) (see clause 6.7).

7.2            Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online or by phone, you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund.

7.3            When you don't have the right to change your mind.  You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery. The right to change your mind does not apply where you place an order in person at our premises.
