2.2. Our site allows you to check and amend any errors at each stage of the order process before submitting your final order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each stage.
2.3. All orders are subject to acceptance by us. We will send you a confirmation e-mail after receiving your order and this will constitute acceptance by us (a Confirmation Email).

We will send a further email when your order has been dispatched (a Shipment Confirmation).
2.4. We can’t stop an order once it has been dispatched by us. If you change your mind about your order after it has been dispatched you can reject delivery or return the Products to us in accordance with clause 8.
3.1. The images of the Products on our site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the colours accurately reflect the colour of the Products. Our Products may vary slightly from those images.
3.2. Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our site are approximate only and have a 2% tolerance.
3.3. Before ordering from us, it is your responsibility to check and determine your full ability to receive the Products ordered.

4.2. Where we have advised that the Product is not available, we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Product we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.
5. PRICE OF PRODUCTS
5.1. The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site, except in the case of obvious error. 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 5.5 for what happens.
5.2. Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Shipment Confirmation.
5.3. The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being.

5.4. The price of a Product does not include delivery charges which (where applicable) will be added to the price of the Products and set out as part of the total amount due during the order process. To see the relevant delivery charges for a Product, please refer to the “Shipping and Returns” page (http://zaha-hadid-design.com/shipping-and-returns). The delivery charges set out on that page may change from time to time. Please continue to check the website for current pricing.
5.5. Our site contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our order-handling procedure so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If the Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will 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 the Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site. 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.
5.6. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we are under no obligation to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price even after we have sent a Shipment Confirmation.
6.1. You can only pay for Products using a debit card or credit card.
6.2. Payment for the Products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance of delivery of the Products. We will not charge your debit card or credit card until we ship your order.

8. CANCELLATION, RETURN AND REFUND
If you are unhappy with your Products, you can return them to us either in accordance with the terms set out below or as otherwise in accordance with your legal rights.
8.1. You have a legal right to change your mind and cancel the Contract within 14 days of the date upon which the Products come into your (or your nominee’s) physical possession without giving a reason. This right, under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Charges) Regulations 2013, is explained in more detail in this clause 8. However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of any bespoke products (i.e. any made-to-measure or custom-made products or products made to your specification or which are clearly personalized).
8.2. To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel your Contract by making a clear statement in writing (e.g. a letter sent by post or email). The easiest way to do this is to contact our Sales Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may use the model form if this assists you but you are not required to do so:
8.3. Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date upon which the Product came into your (or your nominee’s) physical possession (or in a situation where you have ordered multiple Products in the same order, the date upon which the last of those Products came into your (or your nominee’s) physical possession). If the Products have already been delivered to you, you have a period of 14 (fourteen) days in which you may cancel, starting from the day you receive the Products.
8.4. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning the exercise of your right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
EFFECT OF CANCELLATION
8.5. If you cancel your Contract, we will reimburse you all payments received from you, including the purchase price and the cost of delivery (except that we reserve the right not to reimburse you for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us and for any deductions permitted under clause 8.7).
8.6. We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than:
8.6.1. 14 days after the day we receive back from you any Products supplied;
8.6.2. (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the Products; or
8.6.3. if there were no goods supplied, 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this Contract.
8.7. We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any Products supplied if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you. You are only liable for any diminished value of the Products resulting from the unfair and/or unreasonable wear and tear of the Product other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Products. We may make a deduction from any reimbursement you are entitled to from us for such loss in value of any Products we supply.
REASON FOR RETURN
8.8. If you exercise your right to cancel the Contract under clause 8.1 because the Products are faulty or mis-described or you otherwise have a legal right to return the Products as a result of something we have done wrong after dispatch of the Products, then you must seek to return the Products to us as soon as reasonably practicable and we will refund:
8.8.1. the price of the Product in full;
8.8.2. any applicable delivery charges; and
8.8.3. any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us (other than any costs incurred by you in returning the Products to us in person).
8.9. If you exercise your right to cancel the Contract under clause 8.1 other than because the Products are faulty or mis-described after the Products were delivered to you then you must seek to return the Products to us as soon as reasonably practicable at your own cost.
HOW TO RETURN
8.10. Please contact email@example.com to arrange a return or (at our discretion) collection of the Products.
8.11. We will make any reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
8.12. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession before you return them to us.
