You should return the goods to us at your cost within 14 days of such cancellation. The products must be returned in “as new” condition (unless returned because damaged) and complete with any accessories or free gifts offered with the purchase. If you are returning a bundle you must return all the items it included.

On discovery of a fault you should contact us via Support indicating the function you were using when you experienced the problem and any error message. As faults are uncommon it is likely we will be able to resolve your problem.
If we are unable to find a resolution to the technical problem we will agree a return. On receipt of the item we will test it to understand the problems. If we agree there is a problem we will offer you a full refund or exchange. Products found not to be faulty may be returned to you.
