7.5 If you do not re-arrange delivery. If, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from an alternative address, a delivery depot or designated collection outlet, we (or our third party courier) will contact you for further instructions and we may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs.

8. HOW TO BREAK UP WITH US
8.1 Your rights to 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, and when you decide to end the Contract:
a) 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;
b) If you have just changed your mind about the product, see Clauses 8.3, 8.4 and 8.5. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the Cooling-Off Period (as defined in Clause 8.5 below), but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any Products;
c) If what you have bought is faulty or not as advertised you may have a legal right to end the Contract (or to get the Product repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see Clause 11.
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 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 (see Clause 12.2);
c) there is a risk that supply of the Products may be substantially delayed because of events outside our control (see Clause 7.3);
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 14 days (See Clause 7.9); 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 the Cooling-Off Period (as defined in Clause 8.5) and receive a refund. This right does not apply in respect of the Products set out in Clause 8.4
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) Products that have been personalised or monogrammed; or
b) Products that are sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes (for example, styling sprays and potions), once these have been unsealed after you receive them.
8.5 How long do I have to change my mind? You have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the Products (the Cooling-Off Period). This is unless your Products are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery of the Products to change your mind about the Products.
9. HOW TO END THE CONTRACT WITH US (INCLUDING IF YOU HAVE CHANGED YOUR MIND) AND RETURNING PRODUCTS
9.1 Tell us you want to end the Contract. To end the Contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:
a) Email or phone. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our customer services team (on the telephone number on our Site). Please provide your name, home address, the Order Number and, where available, your phone number and email address
9.2 Returning products. If you request an exchange, replacement or refund for any reason after the Products have been dispatched to you, or after you have received them, you must return the Products to us. If you are exercising your right to change your mind and wish to end the Contract as provided for in Clause 8.1, you must send the Products to us within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
9.3 When sending the Products to us, it is your responsibility to ensure that we receive the Products safely and securely to the delivery address stated on either the Cancellation Form or Returns Form. We do not accept any responsibility for Products that are lost or damaged in the post and will not be required to refund you, in the event of such circumstances.
9.4 When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
a) if the Products are faulty and you are claiming under our Consumer Warranty or under your legal rights as per clause 11.5; 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 substantial 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 you must pay the costs of return.
9.5 How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the Products including standard 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 during the Cooling-off Period.
We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. All returned Products need to be received in a resalable condition to be entitled for any refund. If you have received a promotional item in your order, the full contents need to be returned to qualify for a full refund. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the Products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount on request by us.
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, subject to the safe receipt of the Products and in line with Clause 9.3, your refund will be made within 14 days days of receiving the product back to the warehouse.
10. OUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
10.1 We may end the Contract if you break it. We may end the Contract for a Product at any time by writing to you if you breach your obligations under the Contract. This may apply, for example, if you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the Products to you or collect the Products from us.
10.2 You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the Contract in the situation set out in Clause 10.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for Products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you a percentage of the price as compensation for the net costs we incur as a result of your breaking the Contract. This may include, for example, our storage costs or any further delivery costs.
10.3 We may withdraw the Product. We may write to you to let you know that we are going to stop providing the Product.

11.4 Product Claim Process
To make a claim under the Consumer Warranty you must fill in the form on the Service and Repairs Page of the website https://www.cloudninehair.com/service-centre “In Warranty Returns Form” follow the instructions written to you via our email. We will send you a returns label for you to return your product to us via Royal Mail. All paperwork must be included in the parcel for the warranty to be actioned. We will not be liable for any claim made under the Consumer Warranty, until we receive the Products safely and securely to the delivery address stated on the returns label.
a) You may be required to pay the cost of returning any Product to us under the Consumer Warranty. In addition we may charge you an administrative fee of up to £30 for dealing with your claim.
b) Consumer Warranty Remedies. If you make a claim under the Consumer Warranty during the relevant Consumer Warranty period, we will (at our option):
i. replace the Product;
ii. repair the Product, using new or previously used parts that are equivalent to new in
performance and reliability; or
iii. provide you with a refurbished product, which will be the same age/model/condition of
the Product that you originally purchased; or
iv. if your claim is in respect of a Limited Edition or Discontinued Product, we will
provide a suitable replacement of equal value. However, the colour of the replacement product may differ to the original Product.
c) Replacement Irons. In the event that we provide replacement irons (in accordance with Clause 11.4 b), the Consumer Warranty will apply to the replacement irons for the remainder of the Consumer Warranty period, as calculated from the date of purchase of the original Product that we have replaced.
d) Out of Warranty Repair Service. In addition to our Consumer Warranty, we offer a Product repair service for any Products which are not covered by our Consumer Warranty (for example, because the defect occurs outside of the Consumer Warranty period or because the defect is caused by accidental damage). Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about the repair service and prices. We may offer a like-for-like replacement or refurbished Product instead of repairing your Product, but we do not guarantee that the replacement or refurbished Product will be the same colour as the original Product.
11.5 Summary of your legal rights under consumer law.
a) The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says your Products must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. If you feel that any Product you receive does not meet this requirement, then you may have a legal right to have the Product refunded, repaired or replaced, depending on the amount of time that has passed since the Product was received by you. For more information please visit the Citizens Advice website at www.adviceguide.org.uk. This legal right is separate and additional to your contractual rights under our Consumer Warranty (as described in Clause 11.3). Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
b) If you wish to exercise your legal right to have Products refunded, repaired or replaced, you must contact us and arrange for the Products to be returned to us as set out in clause 9. We will ask you to post the Product back to us and we will pay the costs of postage. For a return label, please email us at email@example.com or call our customer services team (on the telephone number on our Site).
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 Site 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 12.2 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Product you Order. We reserve the right to change our prices at our discretion.
12.2 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 on our Site. 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, require you to return any Products provided to you and (following our safe receipt of such Products) refund you any sums you have paid.
12.3 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with all major credit and debit cards, PayPal and Klarna. You must pay for the Products at the time of submitting your Order and before we dispatch them. For Klarna terms and conditions please refer to this link.
13. EXTRA BITS
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 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. 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 11.5; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
13.3 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. YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
17. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
17.1 We may transfer the Contract 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 seven (7) days of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for Products not provided.
17.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person, if we agree to this in writing. Where you purchase a Product as a gift, you may transfer our Consumer Warranty to the recipient of the gift, provided that the recipient can comply with the steps set out in Clause 11.3b).
17.3 Nobody else has any rights under this Contract (except someone you pass your Consumer Warranty on to in accordance with Clause 17.2). 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 17.2 in respect of our Consumer Warranty. 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.
17.4 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.
17.5 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.
17.6 Which laws apply to this Contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These Terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
17.7 Alternative dispute resolution. Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you have the right to submit a complaint to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform, which is accessible here.
