(a) If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the goods repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 8;
(b) If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 6.2;
(c) If you have just changed your mind about the goods, see clause 6.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of returning any goods.
6.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (c) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any goods which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
(a) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the goods you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
(b) there is a risk that supply of the goods may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; or
(c) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
6.3 Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most goods bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
6.4 Our comfort guarantee. Please note that we offer a 30 day comfort guarantee on footwear purchased through our website. This comfort guarantee does not affect your rights under these terms or your legal rights in relation to faulty or misdescribed goods (see clause 8.2).
6.5 How long do I have to change my mind? How long you have depends on how the goods are delivered. You have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless your goods are split into several deliveries over different days, in this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.
7.1 Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:
(a) Phone or email. Call customer services on 0203-302-1419 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
(b) Online. Complete the form available here on our website.
(c) By post. Print off the form and post it to us at the address on the form or simply write to us at that address, including details of what you bought, when you ordered or received it and your name and address.
7.2 Returning goods after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after goods have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must either post the goods back to us at Sledgers Customer Returns, ACE Transport Ltd, H48, Geddings Road, Hoddesdon EN11 0NZ or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please print out and complete the returns form, or call customer services on 0203-302-1419 or email us at email@example.com for a returns form or to arrange collection. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
7.3 When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
(a) if the goods are faulty or misdescribed;
(b) if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong; or
(c) if you are exercising your rights under the comfort guarantee referred to in clause 6.4.
In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
7.4 What we charge for collection. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the goods from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
7.5 How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the goods including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
7.6 Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
(a) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
(b) The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of goods within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the goods delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
7.7 When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:
(a) If we have not offered to collect the goods, your refund will be made within 7 days from the day on which we receive the goods back from you or, if earlier, 14 days from the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the goods back to us. For information about how to return goods to us, see clause 7.2.
(b) In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind

8.2 Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply goods that are in conformity with this contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the goods. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
Summary of your key legal rights
This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.
The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your goods your legal rights entitle you to the following:
· up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.
· up to six months: if your goods can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases.
· up to six years: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.
8.3 Your obligation to return rejected goods. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject goods you must either post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please call customer services on 0203-302-1419 or email us at email@example.com for a returns label or to arrange collection.
9.1 Where to find the price for the goods. The price of the goods (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the goods advised to you is correct. However please see clause 9.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the goods you order.
9.1.1 Where discount codes are applied. Discount codes are applied at checkout prior to payment. They are applied to the value of the order, excluding delivery costs and are subject to our general Terms and Conditions. Unless stated discounts cannot be combined and only one offer can be applied to any order. Unless specified otherwise, discount codes cannot be used against items already reduced in an ongoing promotion. Offers can be amended or withdrawn at any time.
9.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the goods, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the goods in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
9.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the goods' correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the goods' correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
9.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with all major credit/debit cards and via Paypal. You must pay for the goods before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the goods to you. Payment will be debited in £ Sterling ONLY. If you bank outside of the UK you may be charged commission on any transactions.
10.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
10.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the goods as summarised at clause 8.2; and for defective goods under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
10.3 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the goods for domestic and private use. If you use the goods for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
11.1 How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us:
(a) to supply the goods to you;
(b) to process your payment for the goods; and
(c) if you agreed to this during the order process, to give you information about similar goods that we provide, but you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us.
11.2 We will only give your personal information to third parties where the law either requires or allows us to do so.
12.1 Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
12.2 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
12.3 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the goods, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
12.4 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the goods in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
