On-premises contracts: The Regulations define an 'on-premises contract' as: 'a contract which is neither off-premises nor a distance contract', which effectively means a contract made on business premises, whatever they may be: 'Business premises' includes a trader's permanent premises and well as temporary premises (such as a market stall) where they usually operate.  Traders who visit a consumer in his home and leave a quotation (or send one to them later), allowing him to decide and enter into a contract when he is ready to do so, will be entering into an 'on-premises contract'. This is because this transaction does not fall within the definition of an 'off-premises contract' unless the consumer agrees to the contract immediately after the trader has left their home and are  not required to give cancellation rights.

 

Off-premises contracts: The Regulations define an 'off-premises contract' as a contract made where a consumer and trader are together and agree the contract in a place that is not the trader's business premises - for example, in a consumer's home. The following cancellation right apply to Off-premises Contracts only. Your rights under an Off -Premises Contract are to have the opportunity to inspect items you receive from us. Unless it is necessary to remove any hygiene seal or wrapping to inspect or assess an item, removal of such packaging shall be deemed to constitute a failure on your part to keep the items in reasonable Condition and you will be in breach of your legal obligations. We are entitled to exercise our statutory rights in recovering any losses we incur in this respect.

 

Cancellation Rights: You have the right to cancel this contract within 14 days. To exercise your right to cancel, you must inform us by telephone or post, it is sufficient for you to send your communication before the cancellation period has expired, to meet the cancellation deadline. The cancellation period will expire 14 days from the date signed on your contract. Once we receive notice from you that you wish to cancel your order we will refund the purchase price for that item. You will be responsible for the return of goods and costs associated in returning the item to us.

If you wish to cancel an item, provided you return the item to us within 14 days of the end of the cooling off period and in re-sellable condition. (We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.)

We will refund the full contract price you paid. We will make reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than 14 days after the day we receive back from you any goods supplied. We will make reimbursements using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction.

 

This right does not apply to certain items such as: Items of a personal nature. Any appliance that is made from materials that may be distorted if worn. Any item which requires us to provide a service before approving the item for supply - provided that we have begun to provide the service with your agreement. Any item that is made or customised to order. To exercise your cancellation right, follow the instructions in 'How to Return Items' below.

 

How to return items: You have a legal responsibility to keep the items in reasonable condition and in your possession until they are returned to us.  All products must be returned complete, unused, in an undamaged state and in their original packing. This includes, for example, keeping any hygiene seals and clear plastic wrappings in place. You are liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature and functioning of the goods. To return an item you wish to cancel you must confirm cancellation and return the item within the 14 day cancellation period. However, if you are unable to do so we can arrange the collection for the goods for you at a cost of £75. (If we arrange for your collection, but there is nobody at the address who can hand over the delivery on the date agreed, you will be charged the full amount to reschedule this collection.)
