7 Your right of return and refund
7.1 You have a legal right to cancel a Contract during the period set out below in clause 7.2. 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.
7.2 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date we confirm that we have dispatched the Products (Dispatch Confirmation). 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|
|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.
|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.|
|Your Contract is for the regular delivery of a Product over a set period.||Your Contract is for the regular delivery of a Product over a set period.The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the first delivery of the Products.Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January in respect of Products to be delivered at regular intervals over a year and you receive the first delivery of your Product on 10 January, you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January. 24 January is the last day of the cancellation period in respect of all Products to arrive during the year.|
7.3 To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to complete the cancellation form on our website. A link to the website cancellation form will be included in our Dispatch Confirmation. If you use this method we will e-mail you to confirm we have received your cancellation. Alternatively you can download the cancellation form here and return it via post or via email.
You can also e-mail us at email@example.com or contact our Customer Services team by telephone on 01934 317000 or by post to Nickel-Electro Limited, Oldmixon Crescent, Weston-super-Mare, BS24 9LB. If you are e-mailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or e-mail us before midnight on that day.
7.4 If you cancel your Contract we will:
7.4.1 refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund 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. See our Returns page for information about what handling is acceptable and examples. 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.
7.4.2 refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). 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.
7.4.3 make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(a) if you have received the Product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after 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. For information about how to return a Product to us, see clause 7.7;
(b) if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
7.5 If you have returned the Products to us under this clause 7 because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
7.6 We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you paid using PayPal, refunds will be credited to your PayPal account. If you used vouchers to pay for the Product we may refund you in vouchers.
7.7 If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
7.7.1 then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract. Please see our Returns page for our returns address, printable returns labels and information about our authorised carrier and how to arrange a return. If we have offered to collect the Product from you as advised on our returns page, we will collect the Products from the address to which they were delivered. We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection;
7.7.2 unless the Product is faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 7.5), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us. If the Product is one which cannot be returned by post, and except for where we provided free delivery of the Product, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the Product to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery. If we have offered to collect the Product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
8.1 We will contact you with an estimated delivery date. Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 15 for our responsibilities when this happens.
8.2 Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us or you or a carrier organised by you collect them from us and the Products will be your responsibility from that time.
8.3 You own the Products once we have delivered them to you or a person nominated by you to take possession of them.
8.4 If we miss the delivery deadline for any Products then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:
8.4.1 we have refused to deliver the Products;
8.4.2 delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
8.4.3 you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
8.5 If we miss the delivery deadline for any Products and you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 8.4, 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.
8.6 If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under clause 8.5 or clause 8.6, 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.
9 International delivery
9.1 We deliver to all international destinations but we reserve the right to refuse delivery to any international destination at our absolute discretion.
9.2 If you order Products from our site for international delivery, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount.
9.3 You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
9.4 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.
10 Price of products and delivery charges
10.1 The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site at the time you submit your order. 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 please see clause 10.5 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered.
10.2 Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
10.3 The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
10.4 The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order. To check relevant delivery charges, please refer to our Delivery Charges page.
10.5 It is always possible that, despite our efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
10.5.1 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
10.5.2 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.

16 Other terms
16.1 When we refer, in these Terms, to “in writing”, this will include e-mail.
16.2 We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms. We will always notify you by posting on this webpage if this happens.
16.3 You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing. However, if you have purchased a Product as a gift, you may transfer the benefit of our warranty in clause 13 to the recipient of the gift without needing to ask our consent.

16.5 Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
16.6 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
16.7 These Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Products through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law.
