2.a.2 If the item has been personalised or made-to-order for the Consumer; or
2.a.3 If the item has been inseparably mixed with another item or other items (according to their nature) after the Consumer has received it.
17.3 If a Consumer exercises their right to cancel during the cooling-off period, they must inform you of that decision within the cooling-off period. The Consumer must do this by emailing Us at email@example.com. Cancellation by email or by post is effective from the date on which the Consumer sends you their message. Please note that the cooling-off period lasts for whole calendar days. If, for example, the Consumer sends you an email or letter by 23:59:59 on the final day of the cooling-off period, their cancellation will be valid and must be accepted.
17.4 Items must be returned to you by the Consumer no more than 14 calendar days after the day on which the Consumer informs you that they wish to cancel. The Consumer will be responsible for the costs of returning items to you if they cancel under the cooling-off period.
17.5 When a Consumer cancels under the cooling-off period, you must issue a refund within 14 calendar days of the following:
5.a.1 The day on which you receive the item(s) back; or

17.6 You may make certain limited deductions from refunds under this Clause 17 as follows:
6.a.1 You may reduce a refund for any diminished value in an item resulting from the Consumer’s excessive handling of it (e.g. handling going beyond that which would be permitted in a shop); and/or

18. Problems with Transactions and Consumers’ Rights
18.1 By law, you must provide goods that are/is of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, as described at the time of purchase, in accordance with any pre-contract information that you provide to the Consumer, and that matches any samples or models that you have shown to the Consumer (unless you have made the Consumer aware of any differences).
18.2 If items do not conform with the requirements outlined in sub-Clause 18.1 and, for example, have faults or are damaged when the Consumer receives them, the Consumer must contact you as soon as reasonably possible to inform you of the problem. The following remedies will be available to the Consumer:
2.a.1 Beginning on the day that the Consumer receives the item(s), if the item(s) is/are goods, the Consumer has a 30 calendar day right to reject them and to receive a full refund if they do not conform.

You must bear the costs and must carry out the repair or replacement 10-14 days of receipt of evidence of the damaged goods and without significant inconvenience to the Consumer. If either a repair or a replacement is impossible or disproportionately difficult, you may offer the Consumer the alternative option (i.e. a replacement instead of a repair or vice versa) or a full refund. If the Consumer requests a repair or replacement during the 30 calendar day rejection period, that period will be suspended while you carry out the repair or replacement and will resume on the day that the Consumer receives the replacement or repaired item(s). If less than 7 calendar days remain out of the original period, it will be extended to 7 calendar days.
2.a.3 If, after a repair or replacement, the item(s) still do not conform (or if you cannot repair or replace it/them, as described above, or if you have failed to act within a reasonable time or without significant inconvenience to the Consumer), the Consumer may have the right to keep the item(s) at a reduced price, or to reject it/them in exchange for a refund.
18.3 If the Consumer exercises the final right to reject the item(s) more than two months after receiving it/them, you may reduce any refund to reflect the use that the Consumer has had out of it/them.
18.4 Please note that Consumers will not be eligible to claim under this Clause 18 in the following circumstances:
4.a.1 you inform the Consumer of any fault(s), damage, or other problems with the item(s) before the Consumer purchases them and it is because of that/those same issue(s) that the Consumer subsequently wishes to return them;
4.a.2 the Consumer has purchased the item(s) for an unsuitable purpose that is neither obvious nor made known to you and the problem has resulted from the Consumer’s use of the item(s) for that purpose; or
4.a.3 the problem is the result of normal wear and tear, misuse, or intentional or careless damage.
4.a.4 The costs of returning items to you should be covered by you, reimbursing the Consumer where necessary.
18.5 Refunds (whether full or partial, including reductions in price) under this Clause 18 must be issued within 14 calendar days of the day on which you agree that the Consumer is entitled to a refund.
