However, please note that you are obliged to return the Goods to us in the same condition as they arrived and 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 in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the Goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount;
6.7.2 we will refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method); and

8.5 If you do choose to cancel your order for late delivery under condition 8.3 or condition 8.4, you can do so for just some of the Goods or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value.

After you cancel your order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Goods and their delivery.

9.2 The prices of the Goods will be as quoted on the Site at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that prices are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However it is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Goods on the Site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our despatch procedures so that:
9.2.1 where the Goods’ correct price is less than the price stated on the Site, we will charge the lower amount when despatching the Goods to you; and
9.2.2 if the Goods’ correct price is higher than the price stated on the Site, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Goods at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
9.3 Prices for our Goods may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.

However, in the absence of negligence on our part we will not be legally responsible to you for any loss that you may suffer if a third party gains unauthorised access to any information that you give us.
