The contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation.

4 CANCELLATION RIGHTS
4.1 If you are a consumer making a purchase, you may cancel a contract at any time within fourteen days from the day after you receive the products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the products (and any standard delivery charges) if the products are returned to us in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in paragraph 8 below).
4.2 To cancel a contract, you must inform us in writing either via email on email@example.com or by post to Sales Department, Toro U.K. Limited, Bishop's Stortford, Herts, CM23 4BU. We have included a model cancellation form at the end of these terms and conditions that you may wish to use to notify us of your decision to cancel the contract. Where you cancel your order in accordance with this clause 4.2, you must also return the product(s) to the Authorised Hayter Stockist that delivered the product to you ("Supplying Authorised Stockist") as soon as possible and, in any event, within 14 days of you having informed us of your wish to cancel a contract. The product must be returned in the same condition in which it was received, and at your own cost and risk. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the products while they are in your possession. We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any products supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.
4.3 Details of your statutory right to return and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided in the Order Confirmation. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
5 AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY
5.1 The Order Confirmation will give details of the Supplying Authorised Stockist that will be contacting you to arrange delivery and installation of the product which you have ordered on our behalf.
5.2 We will fulfil your order within 15 days of the date of the Order Confirmation. If we are unable to supply within this timeframe, we will contact you to agree a new delivery date. If the new date is not acceptable to you, you will have the option to cancel your order and receive a full refund.
5.3 Carriage charges, if applicable, will be as shown as each item is added to your order. There will be some areas in particular remote areas of Scotland and offshore that we do not normally deliver to and could be subject to special delivery arrangements.
5.4 Products will be delivered to you by one of our Supplying Authorised Stockists, fully assembled and ready for use. The delivery will not be made unless you or a third party are present to receive the product and sign the delivery note. If, on delivery, the Supplying Authorised Stockist making the delivery advises that the product is not suitable for the application you will have the option to accept delivery despite this knowledge, cancel your order, or purchase an alternative machine. If you accept delivery against the advice of the Supplying Authorised Stockist you may be required to sign the delivery note to this effect.
6 RISK AND TITLE
6.1 Ownership of the products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the products, including delivery charges.
6.2 The products will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
7 PRICE AND PAYMENT
7.1 The price of any products will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
7.2 These prices include VAT but exclude any delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due.
7.3 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an Order Confirmation.
7.4 Our site contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the product to you. If a product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will either contact you for instructions before dispatching the product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection, in which case you may determine whether to place a new order at the correct price.
7.5 Please note that we are under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even if the error is noted after we have sent you an Order Confirmation.
7.6 Payment for all products must be by credit or debit card. We accept payment with valid Mastercard, Visa, Maestro, Delta, Visa Electron and Solo cards. We will charge your credit or debit card at the point of Order Confirmation. If, for any reason, we are unable to dispatch your order within 15 days or as agreed under clause 5.2, then we will credit your account with the relevant amount.
8 OUR REFUNDS POLICY
8.1 When you return a product to us:
8.1.1 because you have cancelled the contract between us within the fourteen day cooling-off period (see paragraph 4 above), we will process the refund due to you within 14 days after the day the Supplying Authorised Stockist receives back from you any products supplied. In this case, provided the product is returned in original condition, we will refund all payments you have made to us for the purchase of the product, including any sums paid for standard delivery (but not any enhanced delivery costs such as next day delivery). However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the product to the Supplying Authorised Stockist.
8.1.2 because you claim that the product is defective (pursuant to clause 9), we will examine the returned product and will notify you via e-mail as soon as reasonably possible after determining whether you are entitled to a refund. If a refund is due, the amount refunded will include the full purchase price of the product, including any delivery fees for which you were charged, and any cost you may have incurred in returning the item to a Supplying Authorised Stockist. We will process any refund due to you within 14 days of confirming your entitlement for a refund. Please make us aware of any potential defects as soon as possible. A delay in notification may cause you to lose your statutory rights of return, which carry specific time frames.
8.2 Unless otherwise agreed, we will refund any money due to you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. If there are any issues processing the refund payment we will contact you.

Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
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 and conditions, 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.
