We will indicate acceptance of your order when we send you an additional e-mail confirming acceptance of your order. The contract between you and us will only be formed when we send you such e-mail confirming your order and payment for such order.

We will use the personal information that you provide to us as part of your order, or during subsequent correspondence or communications, for the purpose of processing your order and managing your account. If you agree, by ticking the opt-in boxes on the order form, we may pass your information to Calor Gas Limited so that they may send you details of related gas products or services that may be of interest to you. You can opt-out of receiving such communications at any time by using the opt-out function in any email you receive from us or by contacting us at email@example.com.

The cancellation rights under this returns policy do not apply in the case of any made-to-measure or custom-made products.
Refunds on cancellation will be paid within 30 days.
Please note, you are responsible for the cost and risk of loss or damage when returning the goods, so you should take out enough postal insurance to cover their value.
This cancellation returns policy does not affect your rights when we are at fault - for example, if goods are faulty or misdescribed.
Any goods returned on cancellation must be in a re-saleable condition and, wherever reasonably practicable, in their original packaging.
These Terms & Conditions apply to your order. We amend these Terms & Conditions from time to time. Every time you wish to order products, please check these Terms & Conditions to ensure you understand the Terms & Conditions which will apply at that time.

We will refund the price of faulty goods in full and any applicable delivery charges. We reserve the option to repair goods, or to replace them with goods similar to those ordered. Where goods have a manufacturing fault the item must be labelled detailing the nature of the fault. This information is required by the manufacturers in order to credit us. In some instances there may be a time delay in raising the credit, as the product may need to be checked by the manufacturer's technical department.
We do not accept returns or provide refunds if the fault with the goods arises as a result of your negligent acts or omissions or your failure to store or operate the goods in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
If goods are found on inspection not to be defective, you will be charged a £15/€18 collection charge plus a £5/€6.15 redelivery charge if applicable.
