This might be because the Product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

How we use your personal information
Providing the products
7.1 Delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you before you place the order. We have no control over individual countries import policies and you may be charged separately by your customs agencies local to you for import duties and other taxes; these separate costs are outside of our jurisdiction and will not be displayed to you when you are placing your order. See clause 8 for further information.
7.2 When the Products will be provided. We will deliver the Products to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 3 to 5 days after the day on which we accept your order unless otherwise stated at time of purchase.
7.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If delivery of the Products is delayed by an event outside our control (“Event Outside Our Control”) then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the Contract and receive a refund for any Products you have paid for but not received. An Event Outside Our Control means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or uk telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or uk transport.
7.4 If you are not at home when the Product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the Products cannot be posted through your letterbox, you will normally be left a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.
7.5 If you do not re-arrange delivery. If after a failed delivery to you and you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the Contract and clause 12.2 will apply.
7.6 Your legal rights if we deliver late. You have legal rights if Products you order are delivered late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any Products then you may treat the Contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
(a) we have refused to deliver the Products;
(b) delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
(c) you told us before your order was accepted that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
7.7 Setting a new deadline for delivery. If you do not wish to treat the Contract as at an end straight away, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the Contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
7.8 Ending the Contract for late delivery. If you do choose to treat the Contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 7.6 or clause 7.7, you can cancel your order for any of the Products or reject Products that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those Products (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery. If the Products have been delivered to you, you must post them back to us following the instructions on the returns form provided with your order (“Returns Form”).
7.9 When you become responsible for the Product. The Product will be your responsibility from the time the Product is delivered to the address you gave us.
7.10 When you own goods. You own a Product once you have made, and we have received, payment in full.
7.11 Reasons we may suspend the supply of Products to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a Product to:
(a) deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes; or
(b) update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.
7.12 Your rights if we suspend the supply of Products. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the Product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the Product we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for Products while they are suspended. You may contact us to end the Contract for a Product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 10 days and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the Product in respect of the period after you end the Contract.
8.1 You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes which may apply to your country of residence and to where the Product is being delivered. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
8.2 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.
Your rights to end the contract
9.1 You can always end your Contract with us. Your rights when you end the Contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the Contract:
(a) If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the Contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 13;
(b) If you want to end the Contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 10.2;
(c) If you have just changed your mind about the Product, see clause 10.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods.
9.2 Ending the Contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a Contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the Contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any Products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
(a) we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these Terms which you do not agree to;
(b) 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;
(c) there is a risk that supply of the Products may be significantly delayed because of Events Outside Our Control;
(d) supply of the Products has been suspended for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons; or
(e) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong (including late delivery (see clause 8.8)).
9.3 Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). You have a legal right to change your mind within 28 days from your receipt of the Product and receive a refund under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013.
9.4 When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
(a) Products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them; and
(b) any Products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
9.5 How long do I have to change my mind? You have 28 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 28 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.
How to end the contract with us (including if you have changed your mind)
10.1 Tell us you want to end the Contract. To end the Contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:
(a) Email customer services at email@example.com. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
10.2 Returning Products after ending the Contract. If you end the Contract for any reason after Products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return the Products to us as specified in the Returns Form. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the Contract.
10.3 When costs of return will be paid. We will pay costs of return:
(a) if the Products are faulty or misdescribed; or
(b) if you are ending the Contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the Product or these Terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to Events Outside Our Control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong;
In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
10.4 What we charge for collection. If you are responsible for the costs of return we will charge you the direct cost to return the product.
10.5 How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the Products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
10.6 Deductions from refunds. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
(a) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. 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.
(b) 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 3-5 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.
10.7 When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:
(a) your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us.
(b) In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind
Our rights to end the contract

(c) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the Products to you or collect them from us;
If there is a problem with the product
12.1 How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the Product, please contact us. You can contact our customer service team by writing via e-mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
12.2 Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformance with your Contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the Product. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
Summary of your key legal rights
This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.
If the Product is goods, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected life of your Product your legal rights entitle you to the following:
12.3 Your obligation to return rejected Products. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject Products, please follow the returns procedure on the Returns Form.
Price and payment
13.1 Where to find the price for the Product. The price of the Product will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 14.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
13.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the Product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
13.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. 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, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the Contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
13.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with credit or debit cards issued by Amex, VISA and Mastercard. We also accept payment via PayPal or by direct bank transfer; please contact email@example.com to obtain our bank details and or PayPal account details. You must pay for the Products before we dispatch them.
13.5 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know and we will not charge you interest until we have resolved the issue.
Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
14.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this Contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. 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.
14.2 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the Products for domestic and uk use. If you use the Products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
Other important terms
15.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you are unhappy with the transfer you may contact us to end the Contract within 1 month of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for Products not provided.
15.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
15.3 If a court finds part of these Terms illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
15.4 Even if we delay enforcing these Terms, we can still enforce them later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
15.5 Which laws apply to these Terms and where you may bring legal proceedings. These Terms are governed by Scots law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in the Scottish courts. If you live in England you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in either the Northern Irish or the Scottish courts.
