YOUR STATUTORY RIGHTS COOLING-OFF PERIOD
At Eastman Staples Ltd we want the Buyer to be delighted every time they shop with us. Occasionally though, we know that Buyers may want to return items. That's why under the Seller's "no quibbles" guarantee if, for any reason a Buyer is unhappy with their purchase, and other than in the case where the Goods consist of services, the performance of which has already begun with the Buyer's agreement, they can return it to us in its original condition within 30 days of the date they received the item. In such circumstances the cost of returning the goods will be the responsibility of the Buyer. By law, the Buyer also has certain statutory rights to withdraw from a purchase of Goods. This applies to all Goods except for digital items (e.g.: e-Books) where the item has been downloaded. We regret that we also cannot accept cancellations of contracts for the purchase of video, DVD, audio, video games and software products where the item has been unsealed, nor for the purchase of books and/or newspapers, periodicals or magazines. Any Buyer who is not purchasing Goods in the course of a business shall have the right to cancel an order, in terms of The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, within 7 working days of the day after the date of receipt of Goods (or, in the case that the Goods consist of services to be provided to the Buyer, within 7 working days of the day after the conclusion of the contract with the Buyer), provided written notice of cancellation is received by the Seller at the address specified to the Buyer during the ordering process, within that period. In the event that the Goods consist of services to be provided to the Buyer, such services may be provided prior to the end of said 7 working day period. In such an event, the foregoing right of cancellation shall expire at the time of commencement of the provision of such services to the Buyer. In the case of Goods consisting of services to be delivered by online means, your accessing of such services shall be deemed to be agreement to the commencement of the provision of such services, and therefore at that point your right of cancellation will expire. In the event that the Buyer serves a valid notice of cancellation, the Buyer shall have the right to a full refund within 30 days of notification of cancellation. The Seller shall, within 30 days of notification of cancellation, arrange for the Goods to be collected from the delivery address (or such other address as may be agreed between the parties). In such circumstances the cost of returning the goods will be the responsibility of the Buyer. On cancellation the Goods shall remain at the risk of the Buyer until restored to the Seller and the Buyer is required to take reasonable care of the Goods until that time. The Seller reserves the right to claim for any loss in value to the Goods, due to damage, while at the Buyer's risk
