If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Products you have already received and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.
9. Your consumer right of return and refund and to end the contract
9.1 You can always 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, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
9.1.1 if what you have bought is faulty or mis-described you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back) see clause 15;
9.1.2 if you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do. See clause 9.2
9.1.3 if you have just changed your mind about the product. See clause 9.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling off period but this may be subject to deductions and we will only refund the costs of return in accordance with clause 9.7 and you may be liable to pay the cost of return in accordance with clause 9.12.
9.2 Ending the contract because something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending the contract for a reason set out at 9.2.1 to 9.2.5 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:
9.2.1 We have told you about an upcoming change to the Product or these terms which you do not agree to (clause 8.3);
9.2.2 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;
9.2.3 There is a risk that supply of the Products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
9.2.4 We have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you that we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 30 days or
9.2.5 You have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong (including because we have delivered late).
9.3 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 14 days and receive a refund. These rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in clause 10.5 below. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
9.4 The right to change your mind does not apply in the case of hair straighteners, brushes, shampoos, conditioners, styling and beauty products which have been unsealed by you after delivery. This is for health protection and hygiene reasons.
9.5 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract is then the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the product(s).
Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.
If your Products are split into more than one delivery over different days you will have until 14 days after the date on which you received the last delivery or collected the last of your order from the salon to which it was delivered to change your mind about the Products.
9.6 To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel, and we will e-mail you to confirm we have received your cancellation. The easiest way to do this is to
a) contact us via the Contact Us form www.supercuts.co.uk/shop/customer-care/contact-us/ on our website and list the products on the order that you wish to cancel.
b) email us via our ShopSupport email address firstname.lastname@example.org providing the order number and listing the products on the order that you wish to cancel
c) reply to the Order Confirmation email sent when the order was accepted.
9.7 If you cancel your Contract pursuant to clause 9.1 we will:
9.7.1 refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop;
9.7.2 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; and
9.7.3 make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(a) if you have received the Product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us;
(b) if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract;
9.8 If you have returned the Products to us under this clause 10 because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of a defective Product in full and, any applicable reasonable delivery charges you incur in returning the item to us.
9.9 If the Product you are returning is a Product manufactured by ghd , then it may be more effective and efficient for you to contact ghd and return the Product directly to ghd . For this please contact Shop Customer Service via Contact Us or by email regarding your faulty ghd and we will send you a ghd returns pack for you to send it back to ghd. All other returns should be dealt with in accordance with our Returns Policy.
9.10 Please note that we are unable to accept returns purchased from us at any of our salons and returns must be returned to us by post or courier to the returns address set out below.
9.11 We will process all refunds to you under this clause 9 on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay or the relevant PayPal account. No refund can be processed save where the Product(s) have been returned to us and in accordance with clause 9.12 below.
9.12 If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
9.12.1 then you must return it 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. Our returns address is
James & James Fulfilment Ltd
Brackmills Industrial Estate
9.12.2 unless the Products are faulty or not as described (in this case, see clause 10.8), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us. If the Product is one which cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the Product to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery. If we have offered to collect the Product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection;
9.12.3 you have a legal obligation to keep the Products in your possession and to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession.
9.13 Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 9 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
10.1 The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.
10.2 Your order will be fulfilled by the estimated delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation which will be within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order, unless there is an Event Outside Our Control (as defined in clause 17.2).
10.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the Products is delayed by an Event Outside Our Control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
10.4 Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us.
10.5 The Products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.
10.6 You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
10.7 If we miss the estimated delivery date by 5 business days, then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:
10.7.1 we have refused to deliver the Products;
10.7.2 delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
10.7.3 you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
10.8 If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 10.5 you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your Order if we do not meet the new deadline.
10.9 If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under clause 9.5 or clause 10.6 you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your Order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.
11. No international delivery
11.1 Unfortunately, we do not deliver to addresses outside the UK.
11.2 You may place an order for Products from outside the UK, but this order must be for delivery to an address in the UK.

12.1 The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site from time to time. We take reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered, please see clause 12.5 for what happens in this event.
12.2 Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Dispatch Confirmation.
12.3 The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
12.4 The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order.
12.5 Our site contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
12.5.1 where the Product's correct price is less than the price stated on our site, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you; and

• if your digital content is faulty, you're entitled to a repair or a replacement.
• if the fault can't be fixed within a reasonable time, or without causing you significant inconvenience, you can get some or all of your money back
• if you can show the fault has damaged your device and we haven't used reasonable care and skill, you may be entitled to a repair or compensation
If your product is services, for example a support contract, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says:
• you can ask us to repeat or fix a service if it's not carried out with reasonable care and skill, or get some money back if we can't fix it.
• if you haven't agreed a price upfront, what you're asked to pay must be reasonable.

16. Our liability to you as a consumer
16.1 We are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it was an obvious consequence of our breach or if they were contemplated by you and us at the time we entered into the Contract.
16.2 We only supply the Products for domestic and private use. You agree not to use the product for any commercial, business or re-sale purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
17. Events outside our control
17.1 We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by an Event Outside Our Control. An Event Outside Our Control is defined below in clause 18.2.
17.2 An "Event Outside Our Control" means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.

19.4 Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
19.5 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
19.6 Please note that these Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Products through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction. However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are a resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
