18. Consumers Right to Cancel Where They Change Their Mind
18.1 This clause 18 does not apply to business customers.
18.2 Subject to clause 18.3 below, where you are a consumer and you have purchased the Goods and/or Services over the telephone, by mail order or by exchange of emails you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days (“Cancellation Period”) and receive a refund although this refund may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any Goods.
18.3 The date on which the Cancellation Period commences depends on whether you have purchased Goods or Services and is calculated as follows:
18.3.1 where you have purchased Services the period of 14 days commences on the day Edincare confirms that your Order is accepted;
18.3.2 where you have purchased Goods the 14 day period commences the day after you or someone you nominate receives the Goods; and
18.3.3 if your Goods are spilt into several deliveries over different days the 14 day period commences on the day after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery.
18.3.4 Your right to change your mind does not apply where the Goods are Special Orders or Bespoke Items
18.3.5 Your right to change your mind does not apply where we have provided Services to you within the Cancellation Period and you have signed a written waiver of your rights in respect of the Cancellation Period.
18.3.6 Where Services have already been provided to you we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the Services for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time you advised us that 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.
18.3.7 In order to change your mind within the 14 day period you will need to complete the cancellation form available on our website at edincare.com and return it to Edincare by post to Edincare, Unit 8 Heron Business Park, Eastman Way, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire HP2 7FW or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by hand.
