In such case, where you have ordered Products, if you opt to cancel the Contract, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Products you have already received and subject to clause 8.2, we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.

8. YOUR RIGHT OF RETURN AND REFUND

8.1 As a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract during the cancellation period set out below in clause 8.3. This means that during the relevant cancellation period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that: (i) where Products have been ordered, you do not want to receive or keep a Product; and/or (ii) where Services have been ordered, you do not want to receive the Services you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

8.2 However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of:

(a) the supply of any Products which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygienic reasons if unsealed by you after delivery;
(b) the supply of any Products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery;
(c) [the supply of any sealed audio or video recordings or of sealed software once these Products are unsealed by you after delivery
(d) the supply of Products made to your specifications or clearly personalised;
(e) the supply of Products which may deteriorate or expire rapidly; and
(f) any Service if Protelhealth has fully performed it and you agreed when you placed your order that we could start to perform it within the cancellation period, and that you could not cancel it once delivery had started.

8.3 Subject to clause 8.2, your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Order Confirmation which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered as set out in the table below:

Your Contract End of the cancellation period
Your Contract is for the supply of Products The end date is the end of 30 days after the day on which you receive the Product.
Your Contract is for the supply of Products and Services (where the supply of Services are ancillary/linked to the supply of Products, for example installation).

The end date is 30 days after the day on which you receive the Product.

Your Contract is for the supply of Products and Services (where the supply of Services are separate to the supply of Products, for example monitoring).

For the supply of Products, the end date is 30 days after the day on which you receive the Products.

For the supply of Services, the end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the Order Confirmation (being the date the Contract is entered into).

Your Contract is for the supply of Services only. The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Order Confirmation (being the date the Contract is entered into).

8.4 To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to complete the cancellation form on our Website available here www.telmenow.com/delivery-and-returns.

You can also e-mail us at [email protected] or contact us by post at Stockport Business & Innovation Centre, Broadstone Mill, Broadstone Road, Stockport, Cheshire, SK5 7DL. If you are emailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you cancel an order by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us.

8.5 If you cancel your Contract we will:

(a) refund you the price you paid for the Products and/or the Services. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund 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/retail outlet;

(b) refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). 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) make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days after the date you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.

8.6 If you have returned Products to us under this clause 8 because the Products are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges.

8.7 In the case of a defect with the Services, you agree that where it is possible for us to re-perform the Services and/or repair any defect in the Services, this will be your sole remedy and in such case we will use every effort to re-perform the Services and/or repair any defect in the Services as soon as reasonably practicable. You will not have to pay us to re-perform the Services or to repair any defect in the Services. Where it is not possible to re-perform the Services and/or repair any defect in the Services, we will refund the price of the Services to you.

8.8 We will refund you by whichever means payment was made by you for the Products and/or Services.

8.9 If any Products has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:

(a) then you must return the Products to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract. You can send the Products back to us at the following address Protelhealth Limited, Stockport Business & Innovation Centre, Broadstone Road, Stockport, Cheshire, SK5 7DL. If we have offered to collect the Product from you as advised in your Order Confirmation, we will collect the Products from the address to which they were delivered. We will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection; and

(b) unless the Product is faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 8.6), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us. If the Product is one which cannot be returned by post and if we have offered to collect the Product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.

8.10 If you cancel an order for Services under clause 8 during the cancellation period after we have already started supplying the Services to you (and you expressly requested us to start supplying the Services to you during the cancellation period), you will still be able to cancel the order but you will be required to pay us any costs reasonably incurred by us in supplying such Services, up to and including the date we receive your cancellation form / you notify us by any other means set out in clause 8.4 that you wish to cancel the Contract. Once the Services have been performed in full (as set out in clause 8.2(f)) you will no longer be able to cancel the order for Services or receive any refund in respect of the same. If you wish to cancel the Services after the cancellation period you must provide us with one month’s notice, or in the event of Services with a minimum contract period until the end of the minimum contract period, during which period the Services will be provided but will be paid for.
