If Things Go Wrong

This is subject to You returning the Goods to Us within a reasonable period, unworn and in the same condition as they were delivered to You.

If We do not find any fault or defect then Your cancellation and refund rights are limited to those set out in Clauses 8.1 to 8.4 above although this does not affect your statutory rights.
