15.4 ”No refund” policies are acceptable, but must be clearly identified as such and must still otherwise comply with the minimum requirements set out under Clauses 15, 16 and 17.
15.5 Buyers who are consumers (that is, not businesses) based in the European Union may be entitled to a “cooling-off” period within which they may cancel their service or goods contract with you and return an item for any reason. If applicable, the cooling-off period ends 14 calendar days after the day on which the Buyer (or someone nominated by the Buyer) books a service or receives an item.
15.6 The cooling-off period does not apply in the following circumstances:
15.6.1 If the item is sealed for health or hygiene reasons, and the Buyer has unsealed the item after receiving it; or
15.6.2 If the item consists of sealed audio or video recordings (e.g. CD or DVD) or sealed computer software, and the Buyer has unsealed the item after receiving it; or
15.6.3 If the item is digital content and it has been downloaded or otherwise accessed by the Buyer; or
15.6.4 If the item is likely to deteriorate quickly, for example flowers or food; or
15.6.5 If the item has been personalised or made-to-order for the Buyer; or
15.6.6 If the item has been inseparably mixed with another item or other items (according to their nature) after the Buyer has received it; or
15.6.8 If it is a ticketed event.
15.7 If a Buyer exercises their right to cancel during the cooling-off period, they must inform you of that decision within the cooling-off period. The Buyer may do so in any way they wish, however for convenience We provide a support ticket for each order on Our Site which will notify and email you of their request. Cancellation by notification, email or by post is effective from the date on which the Buyer sends you their message. Please note that the cooling-off period lasts for whole calendar days. If, for example, the Buyer sends you an email or letter by 23:59:59 on the final day of the cooling-off period, their cancellation will be valid and must be accepted.
15.8 Sellers may operate and charge fair and reasonable cancellation fees on services (e.g. appointments) where Buyers have provided short notice of cancellation or failed to attend. Cancellation and refund policies must clearly identify as such and aid Buyers to govern your minimum notice periods and charges.
15.9 Subject to sub-Clause 15.6.7, when a Buyer requests for services to start during the cooling-off period and then exercises their right to cancel, you must issue a refund within 14 calendar days minus the value of the service that has already been provided up to the point of cancellation.
15.10 Where relevant, items must be returned to you by the Buyer no more than 14 calendar days after the day on which the Buyer informs you that they wish to cancel. The Buyer will be responsible for the costs of returning items to you if they cancel under the cooling-off period.
15.12 When a Buyer cancels an item under the cooling-off period, you must issue a refund within 14 calendar days of the following:
15.12.1 The day on which you receive the item(s) back; or
15.12.2 The day on which the Buyer informs you (supplying evidence) that they have sent the item(s) back (if this is earlier than the day under sub-Clause 15.12.1); or
15.12.3 If you have not yet dispatched the item(s), the day on which the Buyer informs you that they wish to cancel.
15.13 You may make certain limited deductions from refunds under this Clause 15 as follows:
15.13.1 You may reduce a refund for any diminished value in an item resulting from the Buyer’s excessive handling of it (e.g. handling going beyond that which would be permitted in a shop); and/or
15.13.2 You are only required by law to reimburse standard delivery charges. If a Buyer has chosen a premium delivery method, you are only required to reimburse them for the equivalent of standard delivery.
16. Problems with Transactions and Buyers’ Rights
16.1 By law, you must provide services with reasonable care and skill, and goods and/or digital content that are/is of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, as described at the time of purchase, in accordance with any pre-contract information that you provide to the Buyer, and that matches any samples or models that you have shown to the Buyer (unless you have made the Buyer aware of any differences).
16.2 If services or items do not conform with the requirements outlined in sub-Clause 16.1 and, for example, have faults or are damaged when the Buyer receives them, the Buyer must contact you as soon as reasonably possible to inform you of the problem. The following remedies will be available to the Buyer:
16.2.1 A repeat of the element of the service that is deemed inadequate, or the whole service performed again at no extra cost to the Buyer, within a reasonable time and without causing them significant inconvenience.
16.2.2 Where a repeat service performance is impossible or cannot be carried out within a reasonable time or without causing significant inconvenience, Buyers may have the right to a price reduction and/or full refund.
16.2.3 Beginning on the day that the Buyer receives the item(s), if the item(s) is/are goods, the Buyer has a 30 calendar day right to reject them and to receive a full refund if they do not conform.
16.2.4 If the Buyer does not wish to reject the item(s), if the 30 calendar day rejection period does not apply, or if it has expired, the Buyer may request a repair or replacement. You must bear the costs and must carry out the repair or replacement within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience to the Buyer. If either a repair or a replacement is impossible or disproportionately difficult, you may offer the Buyer the alternative option (i.e. a replacement instead of a repair or vice versa) or a full refund. If the Buyer requests a repair or replacement during the 30 calendar day rejection period, that period will be suspended while you carry out the repair or replacement and will resume on the day that the Buyer receives the replacement or repaired item(s). If less than 7 calendar days remain out of the original period, it will be extended to 7 calendar days.
16.2.5 If, after a repair or replacement, the item(s) still do not conform (or if you cannot repair or replace it/them, as described above, or if you have failed to act within a reasonable time or without significant inconvenience to the Buyer), the Buyer may have the right to keep the item(s) at a reduced price, or to reject it/them in exchange for a refund.
16.3 If the Buyer exercises the final right to reject the item(s) more than six months after receiving it/them, you may reduce any refund to reflect the use that the Buyer has had out of it/them.
16.4.1 you inform the Buyer of any fault(s), damage, or other problems with the item(s) before the Buyer purchases them and it is because of that/those same issue(s) that the Buyer subsequently wishes to return them;
16.4.2 the Buyer has purchased the item(s) for an unsuitable purpose that is neither obvious nor made known to you and the problem has resulted from the Buyer’s use of the item(s) for that purpose; or
16.4.3 the problem is the result of normal wear and tear, misuse, or intentional or careless damage.
16.5 All Wellbeing Umbrella customer accounts provide Buyers with a support ticket with each transaction (access customer account: https://wellbeingumbrella.co.uk/my-account/orders/), the support tickets can be utilised to request a cancellation. Buyers without an account on Our Site will communicate their request for cancellation via your message button, located on your store. The costs of returning items to you should be covered by you, reimbursing the Buyer where necessary.
16.6 Refunds (whether full or partial, including reductions in price) under this Clause 16 must be issued within 14 calendar days of the day on which you agree that the Buyer is entitled to a refund.
16.7 Any and all refunds under this Clause 16 must include all delivery costs paid by the Buyer when the item(s) was/were originally purchased.
16.8 Further information on legal rights can be obtained from your local Citizens Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.
