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.
5.2. Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail 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, as set out in the table below:
Your Contract End of the cancellation period
In all following cases:
(A) Your Contract is for a single Product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days),
(B) Your Contract is for either of the following:
– one Product which is delivered in instalments on separate days, or
– multiple Products which are delivered on separate days,

If you are e-mailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to help us to identify it including the order reference number. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you e-mail us before 6pm CET on that day.
5.5. If you cancel your Contract we will:
5.5.1. refund you the price you paid for the Products on condition that the Products have not been used (including without limitation any tags being removed) and are returned to us in their original packaging. In the event that we consider in our reasonable discretion that your use or handling of the goods has reduced their value, we may reduce the amount of the refund to reflect this diminution in value. 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 or otherwise used them, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
5.5.2. make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:

22.214.171.124. if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have 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 5.8.
5.6. If you have returned the Products to us under this clause 5 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.

5.8.2. unless the Product is faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 5.6), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us.

8.3. You will be required to pay any additional delivery charge incurred in changing the address (for example if the new region for delivery is different to that originally stated).

The Company shall not be liable for any loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused directly or indirectly by any delay in the delivery of the Products, or by non-delivery of the Products (even if caused by the Company’s negligence), nor shall any delay entitle You to terminate or rescind the Contract unless such delay exceeds 60 days from the estimated delivery time confirmed to You in writing by the Company at the time of creation of the Contract.
