9. YOUR CONSUMER RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
This clause 9 only applies if you are a consumer.
9.1 If you are a consumer, you can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:

- If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 9.2;
- If you have just changed your mind about the product (and you purchased the products online or by phone), see clause 9.3.

- there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;

These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in sections 9.4 and 9.5 and 10 below). For the avoidance of doubt, these rights only apply where you purchased the products online or by phone, not where you purchased in store.
9.4 When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
9.5 How long do I have to change my mind? You have  days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless:

- fair wear and tear;
- wilful damage, abnormal storage or working conditions, accident, negligence by you or by any third party;
- if you fail to operate or use the products in accordance with the user instructions;
- any alteration or repair by you or by a third party who is not one of our authorised repairers; or
- any specification provided by you.
14.3 If you are a consumer, this warranty is in addition to, and does not affect, your legal rights in relation to products that are faulty or not as described as set out in clause 13.
15. PRICE AND PAYMENT
15.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 15.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
15.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
15.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
15.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with Worldpay, Visa Electron Mastercard, Maestro Visa, Trustwave and PayPal. You must pay for the products before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the products to you.

20. HOW WE MAY USE PERSONAL INFORMATION
20.1 How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us:
- to supply the products to you;
- to process your payment for the products; and
- if you agreed to this during the order process, to give you information about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us.
20.2 We will only give your personal information to third parties where the law either requires or allows us to do so.
21. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
21.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
21.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. However, you may transfer our warranty at clause 14 to a person who has acquired the product. We may require the person to whom the guarantee is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the relevant item.
21.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your warranty on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as explained in clause 21.2 in respect of our warranty. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
21.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
21.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
21.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
21.7 Alternative dispute resolution. Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact the alternative dispute resolution provider we use. You can submit a complaint to [The Retail Ombudsman] via their website at [http://www.theretailombudsman.org.uk]. [[The Retail Ombudsman] will not charge you (if you are a consumer) for making a complaint and if you are not satisfied with the outcome you can still bring legal proceedings]. In addition, please note that disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform.
