Please choose carefully before you buy because we do not give refunds or exchanges if you have simply changed your mind about buying the product.

  • is significantly different from the description, sample or demonstration model (if it was sold by description or by reference to a sample or demonstration model);
  • is substantially unfit for its usual purpose, and it cannot be fixed easily in a reasonable time;
  • is unfit for your particular purpose which you told us about, and it cannot be fixed easily in a reasonable time; or
  • is unsafe.

If there is a major failure with a product and you choose to keep it, we will compensate you for any reduction in the value of the product below the price you paid.

3 Consumer rights — minor failures
If there is a minor failure with the product which cannot be fixed, you can obtain a refund or exchange or ask us to compensate you for any reduction in its value below the price you paid.
If there is a minor failure with the product which can be fixed, we will repair or exchange the product, or refund the purchase price within a reasonable time.
