11.2 Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the products. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.

Summary of your key legal rights
This is a summary of your key legal rights under the law of England and Wales.

a) Up to 30 days from date of purchase: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.
b) Up to six months from date of purchase: if your goods can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases.
c) Up to six years from date of purchase: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.

See also clause 8.3 (30-days return policy) which explains our 30 days returns policy.

If your product is digital content, such as software, the law says digital content must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. If:
a) If your digital content is faulty, you're entitled to a repair or a replacement.
b) If the fault can't be fixed, or if it hasn't been fixed within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience, you can get some or all of your money back.
c) If you can show the fault has damaged your device and we haven't used reasonable care and skill, you may be entitled to a repair or compensation.

See also clause 8.3 (30-days return policy)  which explains our 30 days returns policy.

If your product is services, then the law says:
a) You can ask us to repeat or fix a service if it's not carried out with reasonable care and skill, or get some money back if we can't fix it.
b) If you haven't agreed a price beforehand, what you're asked to pay must be reasonable.
c) If you haven't agreed a time beforehand, it must be carried out within a reasonable time.

See also clause 8.3 (30-days return policy) which explains our 30 days returns policy.

11.3 Your obligation to return rejected products. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must either return them in person to where you bought them, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. If the product is software then we will deactivate your account for you. We will pay the costs of postage or collectionprovided you contact us beforehand to arrange the return.

12.  Price and payment

12.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes any applicable 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 product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.

12.2 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 product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

12.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's 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.

12.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. Accepted payment methods are listed when you check out. Third party payment services may have additional terms and conditions which you should read carefully before using those services.

13 Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

13.1 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, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. 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.

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 products as summarised at clause 11.2 (Summary of your legal rights); and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987

13.3 When we are liable for damage to your property. If: 

13.3.1 we are providing services in your property then we will make good any damage to your property caused by us while doing so. However, we are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your property that we discover while providing the services; and

13.3.2 defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill then we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.

13.4 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products 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.

16.4 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.

16.5 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 products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

16.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by the law of England and Wales. You can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts only.
