Clauses 8.1 – 8.3 apply where you have returned the product because of a change of mind

8.1 If you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep a Product, please let us know you wish to cancel the Contract by sending an email to help@kano.me, setting out full details of your order to help us identify it. We will then respond with a returns address for you to send the Product back to us (see clause 8.3 for more detail here). Provided we receive the notice of cancellation and the returned Product within 30 days from the date the Product was delivered to you, we will refund you the full amount of the Product as soon as practicable, subject to the following:

(a) you will not be entitled to a refund if the Product is sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, and the Product has become unsealed after delivery;

(b) we reserve the right to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling of them in a way which would not have been permitted in a shop. If we refund you before we are able to inspect the Product and later discover that you have handled the Product in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount;

(c) we will refund any delivery costs you have paid in receiving the Product, but only according to the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this method 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;

(d) you will be charged a re-stocking fee equivalent to 15% of the Product price (meaning you will only receive a refund of 85% of the cost of the Product) if you are: (i) a business; or (ii) a consumer and you only notify us of your wish to cancel the Contract 15 or more days after the date the Product was delivered to you (but still within the 30 day period);

(e) if we do not receive the returned Product within 30 days of the date the Product was delivered to you, but you are a consumer and you can prove that you sent the Product to us within 14 days of letting us know that you wish to end the Contract, we will still honour our refund policy (subject to the other conditions being met);

(f) if you returned the Products to us because they were faulty or mis-described, please see clause 8.4 - 8.6.

8.2 We will refund you on the credit card or debit card (or other payment method) used by you to pay.

8.3 If the Products were delivered to you before you notify us of your intention to cancel the Contract:

(a) you must return the Products to us in its original packaging using a tracked mail service at the returns address we notify to you (as per clause 8.1) as soon as reasonably practicable;

(b) you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us;

(c) you must keep the Products in your possession and take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession.

SUMMARY OF REFUND POLICY WHERE YOU HAVE CHANGED YOUR MIND

9.2 If our supply of the Product 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.

9.3 Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us.

9.4 The Products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.

10.2 If you order Products from the Website for delivery to a destination outside of the United Kingdom, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount.

10.3 You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.

10.4 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.

11. Pre-orders

11.1 You acknowledge and agree that where you pre-order Products from us:

(a) processing of pre-orders may begin earlier than the release date to ensure that orders can be shipped to you as soon as possible;

(b) if your delivery address changes, you must notify us as soon as possible;

(b) Kano will use its reasonable endeavours to deliver the Product to you but does not provide any promises or guarantees that it will do so. In the event that Kano has to cancel your order, we shall provide you with a full refund;

(c) Kano cannot promise when the Product will be delivered and any date of delivery provided by us is an estimate only; and

(d) technical specifications of pre-order products under development are subject to change.

12. Price of products and delivery charges

12.1 The prices of the Products will be as quoted on the Website from time to time. We take all 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 quoted on the Website from time to time. To check relevant delivery charges, please refer to the shop page of our Website.

12.5 It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on the Website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:

(a) where the Product's correct price is less than the price stated on the Website, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you; and

(b) if the Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on the Website, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product 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. However, if we mistakenly accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may cancel supply of the Product and refund you any sums you have paid.

13. How to pay

13.1 We generally accept all major credit and debit cards and other common internet payment methods. To check the list of available payment methods, please refer to the shop page of our Website.

18.5 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.
