Once goods are delivered or collected by you, they become your responsibility. You should examine goods upon receipt if reasonably practicable.

To exercise this right, you must provide clear notification of cancellation within the specified period.

Upon cancellation, we will reimburse all payments received from you, subject to deductions for any loss in the value of goods due to unnecessary handling.
