Returns and Cancellation Policy


Our standard exchange and refund policy for purchased items is 30 days from receipt. If you are contracting with us as a consumer online (including by email) or by phone, this exchange and refund policy does not affect your statutory rights set out below in 'YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL'. 

References to a "consumer" for these purposes means an individual acting for purposes which are wholly or mainly outside that individual's trade, business, craft or profession.

If you need to return or exchange an item, please send us an email to explaining the reason for the return. 

To be eligible for an exchange or refund, you must return your item unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.

To complete your return or exchange, we require a receipt or proof of purchase from you. 

Where applicable, you will be responsible for paying shipping costs for returning your item (except where the item being returned is defective or damaged (and such damage did not occur in transit)). 

The original shipping costs are non-refundable (except where you return an item because it is defective or is damaged (other than in transit). We cannot guarantee that we will receive your returned item.

If 30 days have elapsed since you received your purchase, or you are unable to provide proof of purchase, we cannot offer you a refund or exchange. 

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. 

We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your requested exchange or refund (as applicable). 

Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged item to reach you may vary.

In the event that you have requested an exchange of a purchased item and we no longer hold the same item in stock, we will inform you and process a refund for you.

If a refund is approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment as soon as possible and within 14 days after the day we receive the returned goods, or (if earlier) the day on which you supply evidence of having sent the goods back.


Items sold at a discount cannot be refunded.


If you are contracting with us as a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to purchased items that are faulty or not as described. 

The statutory rights in relation to faulty products apply to in store purchases, as well as online (including email) and telephone orders. For online (including email) and telephone orders, the timelines below will start from the date of delivery or collection. For in store orders, the timelines below will start from the date of purchase.

Your statutory rights as a consumer are as follows:

  • Within 30 days of delivery/purchase of the product, you may exercise the right to a refund if the product purchased is not of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose or as described.
  • After the 30 day period, but within six months of delivery/purchase and where the product is faulty, you are entitled to a repair or replacement. Where repair or replacement is not possible, or the repair or replacement does not resolve the fault, you are entitled to a refund.
  • After six months of delivery/purchase, similar rights exist, but only if you can prove that the fault was present at the point of delivery/purchase. In addition, if repair or replacement does not resolve the fault, we may make a deduction from any refund for fair use.
