8. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
8.1 You can always end your contract with us.
Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
(a) If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 11;
(b) If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;

8.2 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 (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:

(b) products sealed for static electricity protection (sensitive electronic components), once these have been unsealed after you receive them;
(c) any products which have been permanently installed.
8.5 How long do I have to change my mind?
How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
(a) Have you bought services (for example, installation services)? If so, you have 14 days after the day we confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
(b) Have you bought goods (for example, a shower)?, if so you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless:

You must either return the goods 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 you wish to post an item back to us directly or require a collection, please email us at admin_returns@Croydexshowers.co.uk to make the appropriate arrangements. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.

If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection. Please email us at admin_returns@Croydexshowers.co.uk to determine the cost of collection.
9.5 How we will refund you.
We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
9.6 Deductions from refunds.
If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
(a) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
(b) The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
(c) Where the product is a service, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
9.7 When your refund will be made.
We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:
(a) If the products are goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us. For information about how to return a product to us, see clause 9.1.
(b) In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind
10. OUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT

We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:
(a) you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 30 days of us reminding you that payment is due;
(b) you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the products, for example, measurements;
(c) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or collect them from us; or
(d) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us access to your premises to supply the services.

10.3 We may withdraw the product.

12. PRICE AND PAYMENT
12.1 Where to find the price for the product.
The price of the product (which includes 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 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 in our price list, 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.
We accept payment with most major Credit and Debit cards, with the exception of American Express and Diners Club. When you must pay depends on what product you are buying:
(a) For goods, you must pay for the products before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the products to you.
(b) For services, you must make advance payment of full the price of the services, before we start providing them.
12.5 We can charge interest if you pay late.
If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 2% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank PLC from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
12.6 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong.
If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know and we will not charge you interest until we have resolved the issue.
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.
13.2 When we are liable for damage to your property.
If we are providing services in your property, 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, for example, poorly maintained water stop cocks.
13.3 We are not liable for business losses.
We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products in a commercial application we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

14.1 How we will use your personal information.
We will use the personal information you provide to us:
(a) to supply the products to you;
(b) to process your payment for the products; and

15. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
15.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else.
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract If you are unhappy with the transfer you may contact us to end the contract within 30 days of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for products not provided.
15.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee).
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. However, you may transfer our guarantee to a person who has acquired the product or, where the product is services, any item or property in respect of which we have provided the services. We may require the person to whom the guarantee is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the relevant item or property.
15.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to).
This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as explained in clause 15.2 in respect of our guarantee. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
15.4 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.
15.5 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.
15.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings.
These terms and conditions shall be construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales, and both parties agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. Where the Service is to be performed in Scotland, this contract shall be construed in accordance with the laws of Scotland, and both parties agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Scotland.
These conditions can only be amended or varied by written agreement between both parties.

17.1 In line with AMDEA guidelines, Croydex retains functional spares for as long as there is a market for them and in most cases, well beyond. Due to the vast array of product types, the life cycle of products can vary and therefore so can the length of time parts can be supplied.

18. FIXED PRICE SERVICING
18.1 Your agreement to proceed with an order is an offer to purchase the services from Croydex on and subject to these conditions. The booking of an appointment for our engineer to visit your property is acceptance by Croydex of such order and accordingly a contract is formed at such time.
18.2 You may cancel the contract within fourteen  working days from the date the contract is formed, provided always that our engineer has not attended your property at the time of cancellation, by notifying us by telephone on 02476 372222 by 4.30pm the day before the visit is planned.
18.3a We will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that an engineer visits your property on the agreed date and timeslot, if given. However, occasionally, due to circumstances outside our control, we may be unable to get an engineer to attend your property on the agreed date. If this happens, we will contact you as soon as is reasonably practicable and agree an alternative date.
18.3b If you are unable to allow our engineer access to your property on the agreed date, you must contact us as soon as is reasonably practicable (and in any such event before 5pm the preceding day of the agreed visit date) to arrange an alternative date for provision of the service. If you inform us after this time, we reserve the right to retain a cancellation charge of £45 and refund the remainder of your fee.
18.4 We reserve the right to cancel any appointment if we reasonably believe that the health or safety of our engineer, or legal parking at the property, cannot be guaranteed.
18.5 Price and Payment
(a) If a 'fixed price' option is selected, the fee paid is inclusive of all parts, labour and VAT and is payable in full* by you by credit or debit card at the same time as you place an order. Payment by bank transfer, cheque or postal Order can be arranged by prior agreement, however, a visit will not be arranged until full payment is received and processed. (*If you have paid a £50 non refundable deposit, in which case our engineer will take the remainder amount at the time of his visit.)
(b) If a 'labour only' option is selected, the fee only includes the engineer's call out and time on site. Any parts fitted during the visit will require full payment to the engineer while they are on site. This payment can be made with a credit/debit card or Cheque.
(c) If the appliance is covered by Croydex's standard or extended warranty, the provision of the service will be free of charge within the terms laid out in the user instructions. You will be asked to provide proof of purchase for your appliance in the form of the original purchase receipt. Failing this, the warranty can be determined using the appliance serial number. If you are unable to provide such information prior to an order, we will require a credit or debit card payment. This payment will be refunded in full if and when our engineer is able to validate the purchase receipt during the visit. If you are unable to demonstrate through proof of purchase that the appliance is covered by Croydex's warranty, Croydex will be entitled to retain full payment.
18.6 The Service
(a) Our engineer will attend your property on the agreed date and will examine the appliance. Our engineers carry a comprehensive range of spare parts. If our engineer is unable to repair the fault on the day - we will arrange a mutually convenient date for an engineer to return to perform the repair.
(b) Our engineer will use all reasonable efforts to repair a fault, however, we cannot guarantee to be able to repair every fault. If an engineer is unable to repair a fault or any repair required as a result of faulty installation, which is not covered by the service, the engineer will inform you of the nature of the fault and advise you of what, in their opinion, is a reasonable course of action. This may include that the appliance is beyond economic repair and requires replacement. In such circumstances, we will be entitled to retain the full fee paid or offer an alternative product for an additional price.
