If you do not return the goods delivered to you or do not pay the costs of delivery, we will be entitled to deduct the direct costs of recovering the goods from the amount to be re-credited to you. A deduction may be made if the value of the goods has been reduced as a result of you handling the goods more than was necessary. The extent to which you can handle the goods is the same as it would be if you were assessing them in a shop.
Any refund will include the basic delivery cost available at the time of order. If you opted for a premium delivery service such as next working day, we will only refund the basic delivery service cost.
