By post. Download and complete the returns form and post it to us along with the Goods to the address in 8.10 below.
8.6 Your cancellation is effective from the date you sent us the e-mail or posted the letter to us.
We will pay the costs of return:

b) if you are ending your contract with us because of an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery caused by us or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.

8.12 If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the Goods from you, the costs of collection will be the same as our charges for standard delivery.
8.13 We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for your initial purchase, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise, but in any event, you will not incur any fees because of the reimbursement. However, if the reason for the return is your exercising your right to change your mind, we may make the following deductions from the full amount paid by you:
a) we may 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, for example, if Goods packaging has been opened or the Goods has been used, or the Goods is otherwise returned to us in a non-saleable condition; and
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 Goods within three days at one cost but you choose to have the Goods delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
8.14 We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event:
a) if you are exercising your right to change your mind, within 14 days from the day on which we receive or collect the Goods back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Goods back to us; or

If the correct price of the Goods at your order date is higher than the price stated, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.
