If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below in clause 10.3. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the contract and receive a refund (or an exchange), even if you have opened the goods to inspect them, as long as you have taken reasonable care of the goods. Advice about your legal right to cancel the contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
Your legal right to cancel a contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:
|Your contract||End of the cancellation period|
|If your contract is for a single Product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days).||
The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product.
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.
If your contract is for either of the following:
The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the Product or the last of the separate Products ordered.
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the first instalment of your Product or the first of your separate Products on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate Product on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate Products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.
To cancel a contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel and contact our customer services team as set out on our Contact Us page and let us know about your decision to cancel the contract.
If you are writing to us (whether by email or post) please include details of your order (including the order reference) to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by email or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the email or post the letter to us. For example, your notice to cancel will be within the deadline if you have put your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or email us before midnight on that day (see timescales in clause 10.3 above).

If you wish to return the Products to us because they are faulty or mis-described, we will collect them from you at our cost and will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges. We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection. You have up to 30 days to reject the Product and receive a full refund if the Product is faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
We will refund you using the same method of payment that you used to place your order.
If a Product has already been despatched to you before you decide to cancel your contract then the Product must be made available for collection by us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you give us notice to cancel. We will collect the Products from the address to which they were delivered. We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection.
Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 10.17 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
Our Products are subject to the delivery charges set out in the delivery calendar on the product page and during the checkout process at the time of your order.
If your Product is available in our warehouse, you will be asked to choose a delivery date when you order. If we need to order your product from the manufacturer, then we will contact you as soon as possible with an estimated delivery date. Once we have agreed a date for delivery with you, we will confirm this in the Dispatch Confirmation we send to you. Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 18.3 for our responsibilities when this happens.
You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges and the Product has been delivered to you.
If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 11.4, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your order if we do not meet the new deadline.
If you do choose to cancel your order for late delivery under clause 11.4 or 11.5, you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.
If due to any circumstances beyond our reasonable control we are unable to deliver the Products ordered because to do so would be unsafe or it is not physically possible, for example because the Product is too large to fit through the doorways in your home or the Product is too heavy to be carried upstairs and there is no lift then we will not deliver the Product and we reserve the right to charge you the full cost of delivery. Please see clause 11.7 above for an indication of the full cost of delivery for different items.
This section sets out important information relating to the delivery of certain types of Products. You should read the ‘Delivery and Returns’ page in full. Please also read our ‘Connection and Removal page’ which provides more details on what you need to check before ordering a connection service and what we will and won't do as part of the service. It also explains what we're responsible for.
When purchasing your American Fridge/Freezer please ensure that you have measured the relevant doorways in your home to make sure that the Product will fit through when delivered. We are unable to remove the fridge freezer doors for delivery to take place. If the delivery results in a failure due to this reason the full cost of the distribution will be charged to you, please see clause 11.8 above for further details. If you require any clarification on this please call us on 0333 005 0011. We do not offer a connection service for American Fridge Freezers.

If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option to continue to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancel your order.

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.

Please note that the manufacturer endeavours to offer a free repair service for all Products that develop a fault, not caused by accident, misuse or neglect, within the manufacturer's warranty period. If the Product develops more than three technical faults in the first year of the warranty period an identical or comparable replacement will be offered if requested.
If you are a consumer, a Product warranty is in addition to, and does not affect, your legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. You have up to 30 days to reject the Product and receive a full refund if the Product is faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
We only supply the Products for internal use by your business, and you agree not to use the Product for any resale purposes.

Any representation, condition or warranty which might be implied or incorporated into these Terms by statute, common law or otherwise is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. In particular, we will not be responsible for ensuring that the Products are suitable for your purposes.
