7.3. In the unlikely event that we fail to deliver the Goods within thirty (30) calendar days of our Dispatch Confirmation (unless otherwise agreed as under sub-Clause 7.2), if any of the following apply you may cancel your order immediately:
7.3.1. We have refused to deliver your Goods; or

7.3.3. You told us when ordering the Goods that delivery within that time period was essential.

Please note that if any cancelled Goods are delivered to you, you must return them to us or arrange with us for their collection. In either case, we will bear the cost of returning the cancelled Goods.

8. Faulty, Damaged or Incorrect Goods
8.1. By law, we must provide goods that are of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, as described at the time of purchase, in accordance with any pre-Contract information we have provided, and that match any samples that you have seen or examined (unless we have made you aware of any differences). If any Goods you have purchased do not conform and, for example, have faults or are damaged when you receive them, or if you receive incorrect Goods, please contact us as soon as reasonably possible to inform us of the fault, damage or error, and to arrange for a refund or replacement. Please note that you have a minimum two (2) year legal guarantee over any faulty, damaged or incorrect goods under EU law.
8.2. You may request a replacement of the Goods in the circumstances identified in Clause 8.1. We will bear any associated costs and will carry out the replacement within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience to you. In certain circumstances, where a replacement is impossible or otherwise disproportionate, we may instead offer you a full refund. If, after a replacement, the Goods still do not conform (or if we cannot do so as previously described, or have failed to act within a reasonable time or without significant inconvenience to you), you may have the right either to keep the Goods at a reduced price, or to reject them in exchange for a refund.
8.3. Please note that you will not be eligible to claim under this Clause 8 if we informed you of the fault(s), damage or other problems with the Goods before your purchase of them (and it is because of the same issue that you now wish to return them); if you have purchased the Goods for an unsuitable purpose that is neither obvious nor made known to us and the problem has resulted from your use of the Goods for that purpose; or if the problem is the result of normal wear and tear, misuse or intentional or careless damage. Please also note that you may not return Goods to us under this Clause 8 merely because you have changed your mind. If you are a consumer in the European Union you have a legal right to a fourteen (14) calendar day cooling off period within which you can return Goods for this reason. Please refer to Clause 9 for more details.
8.4. To return Goods to us for any reason under this Clause 8 please contact us to arrange for a collection and return. We will be fully responsible for the costs of returning Goods under this Clause 8 and will reimburse you where appropriate.
8.5. Any and all refunds issued under this Clause 8 will include all delivery costs paid by you when the Goods were originally purchased.
9. Your right of withdrawal (cancelling and returning Goods if you change your mind)
9.1. If you are a consumer in the European Union, you have a legal right to a “cooling off” period within which you can cancel the Contract for any reason. This period begins once your order is complete and we have sent you your Dispatch Confirmation, i.e. when the Contract between you and us is formed.
9.2. If the Goods are being delivered to you in a single instalment (whether single or multiple items), the cooling off period ends fourteen (14) calendar days after the day on which you receive the Goods.
9.3. If the Goods are being delivered in separate instalments on separate days, the cooling off period ends fourteen (14) calendar days after the day on which you receive the final instalment of Goods.
9.4. If your order is for the regular delivery of Goods over a defined period, the cooling off period ends fourteen (14) calendar days after the day on which you receive the first delivery of Goods.
9.5. If you wish to exercise your right to cancel under this Clause 9, you must inform us of your decision to do so within the cooling off period. You may do so in any way you wish, however for your convenience we offer an Order Withdrawal Form on our website (see www.essentaroma.com), which we will also provide a link to on our Dispatch Confirmation. Cancellation by email or by post is effective from the date on which you send us your message.
9.6. If you would prefer to cancel by contacting us directly, please use the following details:
§ Telephone No.: +40 723 259 162
§ e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
9.7. When you cancel, we may ask you why you have chosen to do so and may use any answers you provide to improve our Goods and services. However please note that you are under no obligation to provide any details if you do not wish to.
9.8. Please note that you may lose your legal right to cancel under Clause 9 in the following circumstances:
9.8.1. If the Goods are sealed for health or hygiene reasons and you have unsealed those Goods after receiving them;
9.8.2. If the goods are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly;
9.9. Please ensure that you return Goods to us no more than fourteen (14) calendar days after the day on which you have informed us that you wish to cancel under this Clause 9.
9.10. You may return Goods to us by post or another suitable delivery service of your choice to our returns address at C/Ferres no 3 – Pol Jovades, 46780 Oliva Valencia Spain. Please note that if cancelling under Clause 9, you must bear the costs of returning Goods to us. The cost of returning Goods to us should not normally exceed the cost of having them originally delivered to you if you use the same carrier. You can find more details on return costs by emailing us at email@example.com.
9.11. Refunds under Clause 9 will be issued to you within fourteen (14) calendar days of the following:
9.11.1. The day on which we receive the Goods back; or
9.11.2. The day on which you inform us (supplying evidence) that you have sent the Goods back (if this is earlier than the day under sub-Clause 9.11.1); or
9.11.3. If we have not yet provided a Dispatch Confirmation or have not yet dispatched the Goods, the day on which you inform us that you wish to cancel the Contract.
9.12. Refunds under Clause 9 may be subject to deductions in the following circumstances:
9.12.1. Refunds may be reduced for any diminished value in the Goods resulting from your excessive handling of them, where “excessive handling” means any more handling than is reasonable required to ascertain the nature and characteristics of the Goods in question (e.g. no more than would be permitted in a shop). Please note that if we issue a refund before we have received the Goods and have had a chance to inspect them, we may subsequently charge you an appropriate amount if we find that the Goods have been handled in a way that would otherwise entitle us to reduce your refund.
9.12.2. Standard delivery charges will be reimbursed in full as part of your refund. Please note, however, that we cannot reimburse for premium delivery. We will only reimburse the equivalent standard delivery costs when issuing refunds under this Clause 9.
9.12.3. Refunds under this Clause 9 will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the Goods.
10.1. We only supply Goods for domestic and private use by consumers. We make no warranty representation or guarantee that the Goods are fit for commercial, business or industrial use of any kind, including resale.
10.2. None of the information on any product labels and packaging on our Goods, is a substitute to advice from or consultations with a qualified medical and/or healthcare practitioner.
10.3. You should always seek professional health advice or consult with a qualified medical and/or healthcare practitioner before purchasing any of our Goods and you should only use our Goods and any other supplements or natural remedies under the direct supervision of a qualified health practitioner in order to ensure you will not be complicating any ongoing treatments.
