If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those products (the items you choose). After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled products and their delivery.

We will pay the costs for the carriage and/or collection in this instance. Please call customer services on 01462-222-123 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange collection.
The product(s) will be your responsibility from the time the goods are received at the specified delivery address, to the point they are collected by our couriers for return. If you decide to use your own couriers, it is your responsibility to ensure sufficient insurances are in place incase of further damage or loss of goods. In cases where you use your own courier, the items will be yours/the couriers responsibility until they are received back at our warehouse.
