You may cancel either in respect of all the affected Services or just the Services you have yet to receive. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Services 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

This clause 9 only applies if you are a consumer.

9.1  If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract during the period set out below in clause 9.2. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or maintain a Service, 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.

9.2  Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Initiation 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 then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:

Your Contract End of the cancellation period
Your Contract is for either of the following:

  • a single Service which is not delivered in instalments on separate days;
  • multiple instances of the same Service which are delivered on separate days.
The end date is the day immediately prior to the day on which the Service or first instance of the Service (where applicable) is provided.

Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Service is provided on 5 January you may cancel in respect of all or any of the separate Services at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 4 January.

9.4  To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. You can e-mail us at cancel.order@ipscambuster.com or contact our Customer Services team by post at The Innovation Centre, University of Hertfordshire, College Lane, Hatfield, Hertfordshire AL10 9AB. If you are e-mailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or e-mail us before midnight on that day.

9.5  If you cancel your Contract, and you have not received the Service, we will refund you the price you paid for the Services and make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.

9.6  If you have cancelled the Contract because we have mis-described the Services, we will refund the price of the Services in full.

9.7  We will refund you on the credit card or debit card or PayPal account used by you to pay.

9.8  Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Services that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Services that are defective 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.  DELIVERY

10.1  We will contact you with an estimated delivery date, which will be within 1 day after the date of the Initiation Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order). Occasionally our provision of the Service to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 16 for our responsibilities when this happens.

10.2  If your e-mail address is incorrect and so you are effectively unable to receive the results of the Service, we will take reasonable steps to contact you to obtain your correct e-mail address.

10.3  Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we send you the results of our Service by e-mail to the e-mail address you gave us.

This clause 10.4 only applies if you are a consumer.

10.4  If we miss the 1 day delivery deadline for any Service then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:

(a)  we have refused to deliver the Service;

(b)  delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); and

(c)  you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.

10.5  If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 10.4, 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.

10.6  If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under clause 10.4 or clause 10.5, you can do so. After you cancel your Order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Services and any remaining Service.

11. PRICES OF SERVICES

11.1  The prices of the Services will be as quoted on our site at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Services are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However please see clause 11.4 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of Service(s) you ordered.

11.2  Prices for our Services may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.

11.3  The price of a Services 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 Services in full before the change in VAT takes effect.

11.4  It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Services on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Services you have ordered we will contact you in writing to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Service at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Services to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
