3.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
3.3 Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

We will not charge you for the products during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the products we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 15.5).
- Your rights to end the contract
9.1 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, when you decide to end the contract and whether you are a consumer or business customer:
(a) If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 13 if you are a consumer and clause 14 if you are a business;
(b) 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;
(c) If you are a consumer and have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 9.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any products.
9.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
(a) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
(b) there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
(c) we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 30 consecutive days or
(d) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
9.3 Exercising your right to change your mind if you are a consumer (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). If you are a consumer, then for most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
9.4 When consumers do not have a right to change their minds. Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of:
(a) those that have been made to your specifications or personalised;
(b) products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them;
(c) any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery;
(d) those that are perishable (like flowers or fresh food);
(e) those that date quickly, such as newspapers, magazines or periodicals.
9.5 How long do consumers have to change their minds? If you are a consumer how long you have to change your mind depends on how it is delivered. If:-
(a) Your products are to be delivered on one day. You have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the products.
(b) Your products are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery. For example, a consumer buys three different socks online, in one order. The socks are delivered (to the consumer or his nominee) by way of three separate deliveries on 1, 5 and 10 January. The last day of the cancellation period for all of the socks (including those delivered on 1 and 5 January) will be 24 January.
(c) You have entered into a subscription. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the first delivery of the products. For example, a consumer buys an annual subscription for ‘My Horse Box’. The first subscription product is delivered (to the consumer or his nominee) on 1 January. The last day of the cancellation period (in respect of all copies to arrive during the year) is 15 January.
- How to end the contract with us (including if you are a consumer who has changed their mind)
10.1 Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:
(a) Email. Email us at email@example.com. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
(b) Online. Using the ‘Manage your subscription’ section in your account on our website.
10.2 Returning products after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must post the products back to us at 19 Moor Gate, East Ardsley, Wakefield, WF3 2DE. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a return label. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the products within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
10.3 When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
(a) if the products are faulty or misdescribed;
(b) if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong; or
In all other circumstances (including where you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
10.4 How we will refund you. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms we will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
10.5 When we may make deduction from refunds if you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
(a) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. See our FAQs for information about what handling is acceptable and examples]. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
(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 a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
(c) Where the product is a service, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
10.6 When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind then your refund will be made within 14 days from 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 10.2. In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind

(c) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or collect them from us.
11.2 You must compensate us if you break the contract.

- Price and payment

However please see clause 15.2 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
15.2 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 products provided to you.

15.5 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
15.6 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong, please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
