Advice about your legal right to cancel the contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
5.2 However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of any products that are bespoke and made-to-measure to your requirements. As such, they fall into the category of tailor-made products under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 and (subject to clauses 5.5below) you will not therefore be able to cancel your order for any product(s) once placed, provided that this will not affect your legal rights as a consumer in relation to bespoke and made-to-measure products that are faulty or not as described. Please be aware, that the majority of products available through our website are bespoke.

Our preferred method of cancellation is by email to email@example.com to ensure traceability. Your notice of cancellation will be deemed to have been served on and will take effect from the day it is given to us.
5.6 Working days means that Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays are not included in this period.
5.7If you have ordered multiple products which are delivered on separate days, then the end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last of the separate Products ordered.

These legal rights are not affected by the returns policy in this section or these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
5.9.2If you are: (i) cancelling your order under clause 5.5 above; or (ii) ending the contract for the reason that you have a legal right to end the contract because of something that we have done wrong, the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any product(s) you have paid for that have not been provided or have not been provided properly.
