8. Your rights to end the contract
8.1You 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;
c) If you have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 8.3. 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 costs of return of any goods;
d) In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 8.6.
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:
a) we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 6.2);
b) 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;
c) there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
d) we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than twenty-one 21 days; or
e) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
8.3 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.
8.4 When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
a) services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running, this includes the cost of your E.A.U. Water subscription as soon as the products have been installed and you have commenced using them (in which case the service has been completed), or the cost of your E.A.U. Water subscription for uninstalled/unused products up to the date of cancellation if within the two week cooling off period (as you will have had possession of the products as per the subscription during this time);
b) any products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them;
c) sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these products are unsealed after you receive them; and
d) any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
8.5 How long do I have to change my mind? If you have purchased a subscription service for any of our products, you have 14 days after the day we email you confirming that we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. We have completed the services when you have received the products, installed them and started using them. 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. We have started the services from the day we deliver the products to you.
8.6 Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see Clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, just contact us to let us know. The contract will not end until thirty (30) days after the day on which you contact us. The initial payment of £180.00 is non-refundable. We will refund any further advance payment beyond the £180.00 you have made for products which will not be provided to you. For example, if you tell us you want to end the contract on 4 March we will continue your subscription until 3 April, on which date you will be required to return the subscription products to us. We will only charge you your initial payment of £180.00 unless for supplying the product up to 3 March and will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the supply of the product after 3 March.

9.3 When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
a) if the products are faulty or misdescribed; or
b) if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.
In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
9.4 What we charge for collection. 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. We charge [INSERT] for collection of [INSERT RELEVANT PRODUCTS] OR The costs of collection will be the same as our charges for standard delivery, see [LINK TO CHARGES]].
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. 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. See our [Returns page INSERT HYPERLINK] for information about what handling is acceptable and examples. 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, including goods received as part of our subscription service, 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 9.2.
b) In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind
