If you opt to cancel part of your order you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Products you have already received and we will arrange a refund of the price you have paid for those Products you have returned. Please note we are permitted by law to 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.
7.1 Any applicable costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our Website. Some countries may impose an import tax or other duties on deliveries from overseas, which you are responsible for paying. We have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.

- 8.1.2. delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
- 8.1.3. you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
8.2 If you do not wish to treat the Contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 8.1, you can give us a new deadline for delivery (which must be reasonable) and you can treat the Contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
8.3 If you do choose to treat the Contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 8.1 or 8.2, you can cancel your order for any of the Products or reject Products that have been delivered to you. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those Products (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Products have been delivered to you, you must post them back to us or allow us to collect them from you, and we will pay the cost of this. For more information, or to arrange a return or collection, please contact us using the details set out in clause 4.8.

We will refund any sums you have paid for the suspended Product.

15.4 Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
15.5 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
15.6 These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us and you and take the place of all prior agreements, representations, statements and understandings between us and you regarding the use of the Website and the purchase of Products.
15.7 The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
15.8 These Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Products through our Website and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction in respect of any claim or dispute in relation to and arising from these Terms (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
15.9 If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint you may make, you may want to submit your complaint for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform available at: https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home.show&lng=EN
