7B. Cancellation / Withdrawal

 

If, for any reason, you wish to withdraw from an online order, you have the right to do so (exceptions apply, see section 7C) at any point from placing the order until fourteen (14) days from the day of delivery of the product(s) to you. This is in line with the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013. If you buy multiple goods as part of one order which are delivered to you on different days, your cancellation period will end fourteen days after the day on which you receive the last item of your order.

 

The right to withdraw does not apply to certain "exceptions" specified in section 7C, including goods made to your specification, clearly personalized goods, audio or video recording or computer software if you remove the seal, or goods which by reason of their nature cannot be returned or are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly.

 

Before withdrawing, the customers can only examine the goods in a similar manner as if in a shop, allowing them to confirm the good is what they ordered and wanted. If the customer has actually used the goods before sending them back, Ch. Demetriou Sports can claim compensation for the diminished value resulting from the use.

 

If, at the customer's request, our company has started performing the service ordered (i.e. assembling a trampoline or treadmill) before the expiry of the withdrawal period, and the customer then decides to withdraw, the customer must pay for the services we provided up to that point.

 

To exercise your right of withdrawal, you must contact us (Ch. Demetriou Sports Ltd) by means of a clear statement (eg a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail) about your decision to withdraw from this contract at any point from placing the order until fourteen (14) days from the day of delivery of the product(s) to you.  You can use the model withdrawal form, which is not required.

Please note that legal guarantees do not apply to repairs for damage caused by external forces (for example, accidents, shocks, fluctuation of electricity etc.) or by the user’s faulty usage of the product such as a non-conforming installation or using the said product with incorrect peripherals, accessories or consumables.

 

In the event of non-conformity of the product purchased, the customer will have the choice between repair and replacement of the product, except if the desired option has an associated cost that is manifestly disproportionate to the alternative.

Kindly note, that this does not guarantee refund of the amount.
