Notice of Cancellation

In the case of cancellation, you will not have to bear any cost of returning goods.

If you exercise your right to cancel having already made an express request in writing for us to do the work urgently and before the cancellation period runs out then you are liable to pay us our reasonable fees for the work carried out up until you have cancelled the contract between us. Those reasonable fees will be based upon a proportion of the work carried out when compared to the full service we have agreed to supply to you. If the service has been fully performed at your request prior to you cancelling the contract with us, then you lose your right to cancel and you acknowledge that you have received notice of your loss of the right to cancel in these circumstances.

There are no circumstances where your right to cancel may be lost within 14 days of us giving you notice of your right to cancel except as set out in this agreement between us at paragraph (n) above or where we have supplied you with digital content before the end of the cancellation period and you have provided your express consent for us to do so and have acknowledged that your right to cancel has been lost.

We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.
