(This provision does not apply to trade sales, painted furniture or German furniture) As a consumer, you have a statutory right to cancel the contract at any time until seven working days after the day following delivery. You must however understand that this statutory right of cancellation does not apply to orders which are made to measure or cut to your requirements. This right is also subject to our following Return Procedure: The product must be in new, unused and resellable condition. You must inform us of the cancellation within the relevant time scale by emailing us at email@example.com then we shall inform you of a return reference number and the location to where the goods should be returned. It is your responsibility to return the cancelled order with its original packing to the location as directed by us. Should this not be convenient for you, you may request us to collect the goods and we are entitled to charge for the collection service. We shall make a full refund for any goods returned under this term within a reasonable time, using the same method of payment as your purchase with a deduction of collection charges, if any. Other cancellations outside the above statutory right of cancellation are subject to (1) the above Return Procedure, (2) our acceptance and (3) a re-stocking charge of 35% of the price. Please note that we do not normally accept cancellation of made to order supplies. Your statutory rights as a consumer shall not be affected by this Term. For an example, if an item is proven to be faulty and you have informed us within a reasonable time, we shall accept your return and shall not charge you for re-stocking.
