5. OUR PRODUCTS
5.1 Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our website are illustrative only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the colours accurately reflect the colour of the products.
5.2 Product packaging may vary. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.
5.3 Minor changes to the products. We may change the product:
(i) to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements to, for instance, the way electronic cigarettes are sold; and
(ii) to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements to enhance your experience of our product.
6.1 Prices of the products will be as shown on our website. All our prices are shown in British Pounds Sterling (GBP) and are inclusive of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
6.2 Changes to our prices. From time to time we change the prices of our products and any offers or discounts may be withdrawn. This will not affect the status of confirmed orders and in this case you will only pay the price contained in your order confirmation. If the price of an unconfirmed order changes, we will let you know and give you the option of cancelling the order.
6.3 Delivery charges. Unless otherwise stated in your order confirmation, the price of a product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as quoted on our website from time to time.
6.4 When we incorrectly price your product. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the products on our website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
(i) Where the product's correct price is less than the price stated on our website, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the products to you or apply a credit to your online account; and
(ii) If the product's correct price is higher than the price stated on website, we do not have to provide the products to you at the incorrect (lower) price. In this instance we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error. You will then have the option to cancel the order and receive a full refund if you have already paid the price to us or to continue to purchase the product at the correct (higher) price. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you within a reasonable time using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.

7.5 When you become responsible for the products. A product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us. Please inspect your products on delivery and promptly report any problems with your products to us directly.

You may cancel your order and request a refund if this is the case.
8. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
8.1 You can end your contract with us. Your rights when you want to end the contract will depend on the reasons why you want to end the contract, whether there is anything wrong with it and when you decide to end the contract:
(i) If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract, get the product repaired, replaced or to get some or all of your money back, see Clause 11; and
(ii) If you have just changed your mind about the product, see Clause 9. 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 cost of return of any products.
8.2 Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products 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 and Conditions.
8.3 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 (I) to (IV) below, the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided. The reasons are:
(i) we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these Terms and Conditions which you do not agree to (follow the process in Clause 9);
(ii) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
(iii) there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; or
(iv) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong including because we have delivered late see Clause 9).
9. YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THE CONSUMER CONTRACTS (INFORMATION, CANCELLATION AND ADDITIONAL CHARGES) REGULATIONS 2013 (CCR)
9.1 Returning non-faulty/undamaged products.
You have an unconditional right to cancel your order within fourteen (14) days from the date of delivery. PLEASE NOTE: You must take reasonable care of the products during the cancellation period. This cancellation right does not apply and we do not offer any refunds in respect of any sealed products which cannot be returned due to health protection or hygiene reasons if they have been opened or unsealed by you, or any products which have been mixed inseparably with other products by you after delivery. Returned products must include all parts, accessories, instructions and packaging (including products such as cable ties and plug covers).
9.2 To cancel your order under the CCR:
(i) Contact us here telling us you wish to cancel the order. Include enough information for us to identify you and your order including, as a minimum, your order number, your name and full address.
(ii) Parcel up the products you are returning securely to minimise any damage that may be caused during delivery. Please include a copy of your written notification or cancellation form so we can trace your order quickly.
(iii) Return the products to us using a reputable carrier. The products will remain your responsibility until they have been signed for at our returns address. We do not accept responsibility for products lost or damaged in the post. If on inspection of the returned products we believe that they have been damaged or their value has been diminished, then we may deduct an amount equal to the damage or diminishment in value from the refund owed to you. PLEASE NOTE that returning products under the 14 day period allowed by the CCR is at your cost unless we have supplied substitute products that you have not found acceptable.
(iv) Once you have notified us of your intention to cancel the order we will normally refund you the cost of your order within 14 days of us receiving the products back.
9.3 This section does not affect your statutory rights.
10. YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THE CONSUMER RIGHTS ACT 2015 WHERE PRODUCTS ARE NOT OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY OR FIT FOR PURPOSE
10.1 We will refund, repair or replace products that are of unsatisfactory quality or unfit for purpose, as follows:
(i) Within 30 days of delivery. If you believe that your product is faulty, damaged or misdescribed and this is subsequently confirmed by us after a reasonable examination, then you will be eligible to request a refund. If you do not request a refund, we will either repair your product or offer a like-for-like replacement free of charge.
(ii) 30 days to 6 months after delivery. If you believe that your product is faulty, and this is subsequently confirmed by us after a reasonable examination, then you will be eligible to request a repair or replacement. You will not be eligible to request a refund unless the repair or replacement product is also faulty. We may offer you a refund at our discretion in circumstances where we determine that your product cannot be repaired or replaced, or a like-for-like replacement is not available within a reasonable period of time.
(iii) More than 6 months after delivery. If you believe that your product is faulty, you must prove to our reasonable satisfaction that the product was faulty when we supplied it to you. If we are satisfied with the information that you provide and we subsequently confirm that the product is faulty after our own reasonable examination, then you will be eligible to request a repair or replacement. You will not be eligible to request a refund. We may, however, offer you a partial refund at our discretion in circumstances where we determine that your product cannot be repaired or replaced or a like-for-like replacement is not available within a reasonable period of time. The amount of any refund will be determined by us taking into consideration the age of your product and the use that you had of it. Subject to manufacturers warranty.
