If the Consumer Buyer exercises their statutory right to cancel the contract, but has not taken care of the Goods until they have been returned to and received by the Supplier, or does not return the Goods to the Supplier in their original and undamaged packaging or fails to return the Goods to the Supplier, then the Supplier shall be entitled to deduct from its refund to the Consumer Buyer (as set out in clause 8.4) all such amounts as are reasonably necessary for it to repair or replace the Goods and/or their packaging and/or recover the Goods from the Consumer Buyer (as appropriate).

Supplier's satisfaction guarantee
9.1 The Supplier offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee period for all of Goods. If the Buyer is not happy with any Goods they can return the Goods for any reason.
9.2. Where the Buyer wants to take advantage of the 30-day satisfaction guarantee then the Buyer must contact the Supplier by email at firstname.lastname@example.org/ within 30 days of the date of collection of the Goods by the Buyer or third party carrier.
9.3. Goods must be returned by the Buyer, at the Buyer's expense, within 7 days of the Buyer's notification to the Supplier in accordance with clause 9.2 above.
9.4. Goods must be returned in the original packaging with adequate insurance during the return journey and must be in the same condition as when they were dispatched by the Supplier.

9.5.2 If the condition is acceptable then the Supplier must make arrangements to refund the Buyer within 14 days of the date of the Supplier's inspection. Refunds will be made using the same method of payment that the Buyer used when purchasing the Goods. The cost of the initial delivery is non-refundable.

9.5.4 Where Goods are not collected by the Buyer or the third party carrier within 100 days of the date of the Supplier's inspection then the Supplier will assume no responsibility for returning the goods to the Buyer.
9.6 If a customer exercises their right to return on a single item which was purchased as part of a '2 for 1' promotion, their refund is calculated as a proportion of the total value of the two linked products. For example, if the more expensive product has a value of 750 and the cheaper (therefore free) has a value of 250 the refund will be calculated as follows: 750 / (750 + 250) x 750 = 562.50 The customer therefore originally paid 750 but is retaining an item worth 250. With a credit of 562.50 they would have paid 187.50 meaning a net discount on this item of 25%. Should the customer add an item to the sales order placed during or after the promotional offer, full retail price must be paid and normal refund procedures apply. The same formula applies for multiple purchases using the offer. For example, if the customer purchases 4 items and obtains the cheapest 2 free.
Faulty goods guarantee
