Products claimed to be defective or not conforming to the Purchaser’s order and accepted in writing by the Company as such must be returned. No claim in respect of defective products will be considered unless the alleged defective products are returned to the Company, at the Purchaser’s expense and within a period of 30 days from the date of despatch of the original consignment by the Company to the Purchaser. The Purchaser must allow the Company full rights of access and information to investigate any such claims, including inspection of any equipment on or in which the Company’s products have been used in connection with the claimed defect.

Cancellation & Returns (Private Consumers)
Under the laws set out by the Consumer Rights Act 2015 the following applies.
Standard purchases have a 14 day cooling off period. In this time the Purchaser may cancel their order, as long as they exercise their right to do so within the 14 days from which they receive their goods.
Returned goods will not be accepted by the Company unless the Purchaser informs the Company of their decision to cancel their contract by a clear statement, including details of their name, geographical address, details of their order they wish to cancel and, where available, their phone number and email address.
If the Purchaser receives standard goods that are defective, faulty or are in any way breaching the Consumer Rights Act 2015 then they must allow if needed, the Company full rights of access and information to investigate any such claims, including inspection of any equipment on or in which the Company products have been used in connection with the claimed defect. If the defect is found to be the fault of the Company a full refund including return postage* will be given as long as the Purchaser acknowledges their wish to do so within 30 days of receiving the product/s.
If, however, the Purchaser has simply changed their minds regarding their purchase, then the return postage costs to the Company are the responsibility of the Purchaser. A refund for the product/s will only be given when the goods arrive back safely and in their original condition.
If the Purchaser wishes to return their products via collection by one of our UK representatives/ our courier collection service, then they should call the Company's customer service line on 01732 763377.
These terms do not apply to non-standard products or products modified to meet the Purchaser's requirements which can only be returned by the discretion of the Company.

Shortages, Damage and/or Loss in Transit
No claim for non-delivery of the whole or part of an order nor for damage in transit or shortage in delivery will be considered unless the Purchaser provides the Company and the Carrier concerned with written notice of the deficiencies within 3 days of the receipt of the products, or in the case of non-delivery within 7 days of invoice date.
The Company shall be entitled to terminate, cancel, rescind and/or suspend and/or reduce the quantities to be supplied under any contract or order without liability for loss or damage resulting there from if the performance of its obligations under the contract or order is in any way adversely affected by any war, strike, lock-out, trade dispute, flood, severe or adverse weather conditions, accident to plant or machinery, shortage of any material or labour or any other cause whatsoever beyond the Company's reasonable control.
