This clause 9 only applies if you are a consumer.
9.1 If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract (under Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Payments) Regulations 2013) during the period set out below in clause 9.2. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract under these regulations is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
9.2 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Payment Confirmation, which is when the Contract between us is formed. Save where clause 9.3 applies, if the Products have already been delivered to you, you have a period of 14 (fourteen) calendar days in which you may cancel the Contract, starting from the day on which you (or someone you nominate) receives the Product unless your Product(s) are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to cancel the contract. Custom, bespoke, hand made orders such as our reclaimed furniture range are not subject to distance selling/Consumer Contract Regulations and are excluded from this unless at our sole discretion.
9.3 Reclaimed furniture is a custom, bespoke, hand made product:
9.4 If you have changed your mind and wish to cancel a Contract, please contact us in writing before the expiry of the deadline referred to in clause 8.2 to tell us clearly that you wish to cancel by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a letter to our postal address. Alternatively you may wish to use the model cancellation form below, but this is not obligatory. You may wish to keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you sent us the e-mail or posted the letter to us.
9.5 On cancellation of a Contract, you will receive a full refund of the price you paid for the Products and a full refund of any applicable delivery charges you paid for. The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a Product within 5-7 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind and once the Product has been returned.
9.6 If you cancel the Contract after the Products have been delivered to you:
(a) you must return or make the Products available for a collection as soon as reasonably practicable and in any event no later than 14 days after the date of your cancellation. If the Products are being collected this will be from the address to which they were delivered and we will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection;
(b) All items must be in their original undamaged packaging which if opened must be resealed in exactly the same way as delivered, undamaged and unused.
(c) you have a legal obligation to keep the Products in your possession and to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession.
(d) a collection charge will apply which will vary according to the Product. This also applies to any exchanges. For more information regarding returns and refunds, please refer to our Returns & Refunds page.
9.7 We refund you in the same way in which you made payment for the Product. 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 Product. We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any Products supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you. You are only liable for any diminished value of the Products resulting from the unfair and/or unreasonable wear and tear of the Product other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Products. 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.
9.8 Details of your legal right to cancel and an explanation of how to exercise it are provided in the Payment Confirmation.

12.3 You must arrange for the Product to be examined and signed for on arrival at your nominated mainland UK freight company and for any issues to be reported to us before the Product leaves the UK. We are unable to accept responsibility for any damage that occurs to the Product after it has been accepted and signed for you nominated mainland UK freight company.
12.4 If you order Products from our site outside the UK in accordance with clause 12.2, for delivery to one of the International Delivery Destinations, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination.

13. Price of Products and delivery charges
13.1 The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site from time to time. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered, please see clause 13.5 for what happens in this event.
13.2 Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Payment Confirmation.
13.3 The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being.

(a) where the Product's correct price is less than the price stated on our site, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price; and
(b) if the Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. 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.
