We contact you to confirm we've received your order and we accept it when we dispatch or supply the product.
Sometimes we reject orders
Sometimes we reject orders, for example, because a product is unexpectedly out of stock, because we can't verify your age (where the product is age-restricted), because you are located outside our delivery areas, as stated on our website or because the product was mispriced by us. When this happens, we let you know as soon as possible and refund any sums you have paid.
We charge you when you order
However, for some products we take payment at regular intervals, as explained to you during the order process. If your product is goods (rather than digital content or services), you will own it once we have received payment in full.
We charge interest on late payments
If we're unable to collect any payment you owe us we charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of two (2)% a year above the Bank of England base rate from time to time. This interest accrues on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You pay us the interest together with any overdue amount.
We pass on increases in VAT
If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
We're not responsible for delays outside our control
If our supply of your product is delayed by an event outside our control, such as due to a postal strike, we contact you as soon as possible to let you know and do what we can to reduce the delay. As long as we do this, we won't compensate you for the delay, but [if the delay is likely to be substantial you can contact us at email@example.com to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for in advance, but not received, less reasonable costs we have already incurred.

Your legal rights
14 days to change your mind, online sales only.
You pay costs of return
When you can't change your mind. You can't change your mind about an order for:
digital products, after you have started to download or stream these;
services, once these have been completed;

sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these products are unsealed after you receive them;
goods that are made to your specifications or are clearly personalised; and
goods which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
The deadline for changing your mind. If you change your mind about a product you must let us know no later than 14 days after the day we deliver your product, if it is goods, for example Ross J. Barr Sleep Patches. If the goods are for regular delivery (for example, a subscription), you can only change your mind after the first delivery. If the goods are split into several deliveries over different days, the period runs from the day after the last delivery.
How to let us know. To let us know you want to change your mind, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You have to return the product at your own cost. If your product is goods, for example, Ross J. Barr Calm Patches, you have to return it (and any free gifts provided with it) to us within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind. Returns are at your own cost, unless we offered free returns when you bought the goods. You can send the product back to us, using an established delivery service. If you do this you should keep a receipt or other evidence from the delivery service that proves you have sent it and when you sent it. If you don’t do this and we don’t receive the goods at all or within a reasonable time we won't refund you the price. For help with returns, including our collection arrangements for goods which can't be posted, please contact us at email@example.com.
We only refund standard delivery costs. We don't refund any extra you have paid for express delivery, or delivery at a particular time.
You have to pay for services you received before you change your mind. If you bought a service, we don't refund you for the time you were receiving it before you told us you'd changed your mind.
We reduce your refund if you have used or damaged a product. If you handle the product in a way which would not be acceptable in-store, we reduce your refund, to compensate us for its reduced value. For example, we reduce your refund if the product's condition is not "as new", price tags have been removed, the product-branded packaging is damaged or accessories are missing. In some cases, because of the way you have treated the product, no refund may be due.
When and how we refund you. If your product is a service, digital content or goods that haven't been delivered or that we're collecting from you, we refund you as soon as possible and within 14 days of you telling us you've changed your mind.

We can change products and these terms
Changes we can always make. We can always change a product:
to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
to make minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat. These are changes that don't affect your use of the product; and
to update digital content, provided that the digital content always matches the description of it that we provided to you before you bought it. We might ask you to install these updates.
Changes we can only make if we give you notice and an option to terminate. We can also make the following types of change to the product or these terms, but if we do so we'll notify you and you can then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to end the contract before the change takes effect and receive a refund for any products you've paid for in advance, but not received:
We can suspend supply (and you have rights if we do)
We can suspend the supply of a product. We do this to:
deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; or
make changes to the product.
We let you know, may adjust the price and may allow you to terminate. We contact you in advance to tell you we're suspending supply, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we suspend the product for longer than 30 days in any 3 month period we adjust the price so you don't pay for it while its suspended. If we suspend supply, or tell you we're going to suspend supply, for more than 3 months you can contact us at email@example.com to end the contract and we'll refund any sums you've paid in advance for products you won't receive.

you don't, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information, cooperation or access that we need to provide the product, for example, a correct shipping address.
you don't, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the product to you.
We don't compensate you for all losses caused by us or our products
We're responsible for losses you suffer caused by us breaking this contract unless the loss is:
Unexpected. It was not obvious that it would happen and nothing you said to us before we accepted your order meant we should have expected it (so, in the law, the loss was unforeseeable).
Caused by a delaying event outside our control. As long as we have taken the steps set out in the section We're not responsible for delays outside our control.
Avoidable. Something you could have avoided by taking reasonable action. For example, damage to your own digital content or device, which was caused by digital content we supplied and which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply a free update or by correctly following the installation instructions or having the minimum system requirements advised by us.
A business loss. It relates to your use of a product for the purposes of your trade, business, craft or profession.
You have several options for resolving disputes with us
Our complaints policy. Please do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do their best to resolve any problems you have with us or our products.
You can go to court. These terms are governed by English law and wherever you live you can bring claims against us in the English courts. If you live in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland, you can also bring claims against us in the courts of the country you live in. We can claim against you in the courts of the country you live in.
Other important terms apply to our contract
We can transfer our contract with you, so that a different organisation is responsible for supplying your product. We'll tell you in writing if this happens and we'll ensure that the transfer won't affect your rights under the contract.
You can only transfer your contract with us to someone else if we agree to this. We may not agree to this.
Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. Nobody else can enforce it and neither of us will need to ask anybody else to sign-off on ending or changing it.
If a court invalidates some of this contract, the rest of it will still apply. If a court or other authority decides that some of these terms are unlawful, the rest will continue to apply.
Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. We might not immediately chase you for not doing something (like paying) or for doing something you're not allowed to, but that doesn’t mean we can't do it later.
