13.3 We may need certain information from you that is necessary for us to provide the Services. If you do not, after being asked by us, provide us with this information, or you provide us with incomplete or incorrect information, we may make an additional reasonable charge to cover any extra work that is required or we may need to suspend the Services. We will not be liable for any delay or non-performance where you have not provided the necessary information to us. We may also have to suspend the Services if we have to deal with technical problems, or to make improvements as agreed between you and us in writing. We will contact you to let you know in advance where this occurs, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. You do not have to pay for the Services while they are suspended under but this does not affect your obligation to pay for any invoices that we have already sent to you.
13.4 In some circumstances, we may be unable to provide you with the Services that you require and may therefore request that a third party provides those Services to you (Third Party Services). We will let you know where this is the case. By placing an order for Third Party Services, you will be entering in to a direct contractual relationship with the third party providing those Third Party Services. You must unconditionally accept these Terms and Conditions of Supply and the terms and conditions of any third party (in respect of the Third Party Services that they supply to you) if you want to proceed with your order.
13.5 In certain circumstances, we will supply services to you on a SUPPLY-ONLY basis. This means that the services provided to you are performed by a third party, and that we do not supervise or accept any responsibility or liability for the works of that third party. You will be advised in any instance where supply-only services are to be provided to you.

14. YOUR CONSUMER RIGHT OF RETURN AND REFUND
This clause 14 only applies if you are a consumer
14.1 If you are a consumer, you have the benefit of a 14 day cooling off period where you have a legal right to cancel a Contract for Products and / or Services under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 and the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
14.2 This means that during the relevant period set out in clause, if you change your mind for any reason and you do not want to keep a Product and / or receive Services, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
14.3 However, this legal right to cancel does not apply in the case of:
14.3.1 any Products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
14.4 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Acceptance Confirmation (the date on which we contact 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. The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Acceptance Confirmation. Example: if we provide you with an Acceptance Confirmation on 1 February whereby we agree to deliver your electric radiator, 15 February will be the last day of the cancellation period (subject to clause 12.12).
14.5 To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. You can contact us by e-mail, post or telephone to cancel a Contract. 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 post your letter in time for it to be taken with the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or e-mail us before midnight on that day.
14.6 Please provide your name, address, telephone number, the full product details and your order number to help us to identify your order and process your refund.
14.7 If we have to contact you or give you notice in writing, we will do so by e-mail or by pre-paid post to the address you provide to us in your order.
14.8 If you cancel your Contract we will:
14.8.1 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 Products, if this has been caused by your handling and or use of them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop;
14.8.2 refund you the price you paid for the Services but only to the extent that they have not been performed. You must pay for the supply of the Services for the period for which they have been supplied up until the time of cancellation. The price for Services supplied shall be determined in proportion to the full value of the Services to be performed under the Contract. We will not begin to supply any Services before the end of the cancellation period unless you expressly request that we do so in writing and acknowledge that your cancellation rights will be lost once the Services have been performed in full;
14.8.3 refund delivery costs (where you have paid for delivery) limited to the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if you place your order on a Friday and we offer delivery of the Product on the following Monday at one cost but you choose to have the Product delivered at the weekend at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option; and
14.8.4 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, you will receive your refund within 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;
(b) if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you, you will receive your refund 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract or 14 days after we have received the returned Product from you; and
(c) in respect of any Services that you have prepaid for, you will receive your refund 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
14.9 If you have returned the Products because they are faulty or not as described, you will be entitled to a full refund subject to our terms under clause 15.3.
14.10 We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the Products and / or Services we may refund you in vouchers.
14.11 If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
14.11.1 you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Product to us unless the Product is faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 15.3). We will let you know the precise costs of collection prior to collecting any Products and we will only do so if you agree to pay the costs of collection.
14.12 We are under a legal duty to supply Products and / or Services that are in conformity with a Contract. If you are a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described and Services that are not carried out with reasonable skill and care, or if the materials used are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 14 or anything else in these Terms and Conditions of Supply. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

15.3 In the unlikely event that there is a defect with a Product that manifests we will refund the price of the Product in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the Products to us, where you have made the return within 30 days.
