Products should be unused and returned in perfect condition and in original packaging where possible. We will refund your money or exchanged item within 21 days of receipt of your purchase.

Please notify us in writing within seven working days that you wish to cancel your order and that you intend to return the item(s) and we will be happy to offer you a full refund.
How to return something
You can return an item as long as you have your receipt or delivery note. Please send your return by post. It would really help us in developing our products if you could give a reason why they were not suitable. Please let us know whether you require an exchange or a refund and always include a daytime telephone number and your email address in case we need to contact you about the return. If you no longer have your delivery note, please include a letter giving your name, address, customer number if possible, email address and daytime telephone number plus a note of what you are returning and why, and whether you want a refund or exchange for another product.
For details of the return address please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parcels are returned at your own cost, and we strongly recommend you obtain a free certificate of postage from the Post Office as we are responsible for your parcel only once it has been received to us. Items lost in transit will not be treated as returned.
We can also arrange for our courier company to collect the parcel from your home. You will need to be at home to hand over the parcel. There is a charge for this service.
Once your parcel has been received by our team it can take up to 10 working days to fulfil your request. Returns are dealt with in the order in which they are received so returns sent by Recorded Delivery may reach us more quickly but do not progress more quickly through the process.
When we have dealt with your parcel we will confirm this to you by email, assuming you have given us your email address. Please remember that it can take three to four days after we have processed a refund payment for it to appear on your credit card statement.
If, after sending your return to us, you have not received our email confirmation within 10 working days, please contact us on email@example.com so we can investigate.
