Discount codes must be entered on the 'Add to Basket' screen before you click 'Proceed to Checkout' if they are to be accepted. We do not bear any responsibility for discount codes published on external websites and reserve the right to withdraw our discounts and discount codes at any time.

7. YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THE CONSUMER CONTRACTS (INFORMATION, CANCELLATION AND ADDITIONAL CHARGES) REGULATIONS 2013 (CCR)
(a) Returning non-faulty/undamaged products.
You have an unconditional right to cancel your order within fourteen (14) days from the date of delivery. PLEASE NOTE: You must take reasonable care of the products during the cancellation period. This cancellation right does not apply and we do not offer any refunds in respect of any sealed products which cannot be returned due to health protection or hygiene reasons if they have been opened or unsealed by you, or any products which have been mixed inseparably with other products by you after delivery. Returned products must include all parts, accessories, instructions and packaging (including products such as cable ties and plug covers).
(b) To cancel your order under the CCR:
(i) Send an email or write to us (at firstname.lastname@example.org or Zandera Ltd, Unit 18, Buntsford Hill Business Park, Bromsgrove, B60 3DX) telling us you wish to cancel the order. Include enough information for us to identify you and your order including, as a minimum, your order number, your name and full address. Alternatively, print, complete and send a copy of our cancellation form to us.
(ii) Parcel up the products you are returning securely to minimise any damage that may be caused during delivery. Please include a copy of your written notification or cancellation form so we can trace your order quickly.
(iii) Return the products to us using a reputable carrier. The products will remain your responsibility until they have been signed for at our returns address. We do not accept responsibility for products lost or damaged in the post. If on inspection of the returned products we believe that they have been damaged or their value has been diminished, then we may deduct an amount equal to the damage or diminishment in value from the refund owed to you. PLEASE NOTE that returning products under the 14 day period allowed by the CCR is at your cost unless we have supplied substitute products that you have not found acceptable.
(iv) Once you have notified us of your intention to cancel the order we will normally refund you the cost of your order within 14 days of us receiving the products back.
(v) This section does not affect your statutory rights.
(a) Prices of the products will be as shown on our website. All our prices are shown in British Pounds Sterling (GBP) and are inclusive of VAT.
(b) If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
(c) From time to time we will have to change the prices of our products and/or promotional offers or discounts may be withdrawn. This will not affect the status of confirmed orders and in this case you will only pay the price contained in your order confirmation. If the prices of an unconfirmed order changes, we will let you know and give you the option of cancelling the order.
(d) Unless otherwise stated in your order confirmation, the price of a product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as quoted on our website from time to time.
(e) It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the products on our website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
(e.i.i) where the product's correct price is less than the price stated on our website, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the products to you or apply a credit to your online account; and
(e.i.ii) if the product's correct price is higher than the price stated on website, we do not have to provide the products to you at the incorrect (lower) price. In this instance we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error. You will then have the option to cancel the order and receive a full refund if you have already paid the price to us or to continue to purchase the product at the correct (higher) price. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you within a reasonable time using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.

(a) We are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these Terms and Conditions or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if they were an obvious consequence of our breach or if they were contemplated by you and us at the time we accept your order.
