Your rights to return goods are protected under the EU Distance Selling Directive.

You are entitled to return any item in your order within 7 days of despatch for a refund.

A “Returned Goods Fee” of 20% of the net value of the goods will be applied to cover administration costs. Your refund will be paid within 30 days of receipt of the returned goods subject to the clauses below.

You are responsible for the cost and the risk of loss or damage when returning the goods, so you should have adequate insurance to cover the value of the goods. You are also responsible for ensuring that the package meets all legislative requirements for the carriage of the goods, particularly any goods classified as hazardous as they are prohibited by post.

Any goods returned must be in the original container and unopened. This Returns Policy does not affect your rights when the goods are faulty.

These terms apply to your current order. We reserve the right to amend our terms and conditions at any time, so please check for any changes when placing future orders.

None of these terms and conditions affect your statutory rights nor diminish them in any way. If any term is held to be invalid under any applicable statute or rule of law, that term is automatically omitted from these terms to the minimum extent necessary to comply with the law and without affecting the validity or enforceability of the remainder.
