3. Basis of Sale
All orders that you place by distance communication will be subject to acceptance in accordance with these terms and conditions.
The following is required to create a contract between you and us:
By placing an order by distance communication you offer to buy the Goods at the prices indicated as well as any applicable delivery charges.
An order acknowledgement email will be sent to you. Please note that this is merely an acknowledgement of your order and not an acceptance or confirmation of your order by PJUK.
The acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on dispatch of the products unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it. Once we have accepted your order it becomes binding, subject to your rights of cancellation. Non-acceptance of an order by us will occur if: the ordered product is out of stock or unavailable; we identify a pricing or product description error; or we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment.
We reserve the right to withdraw any Products from sale at any time. We may refuse to process a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of our withdrawing any Product from sale whether or not that Product has been sold; refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.

4. Cancellations and Returns
Returning your purchase (UK and EU consumers) within 14 days of purchase
Should you wish to return your purchase within the Consumer Contracts Regulations 14 day cancellation period, the regulations require that you contact us in writing (email or letter) to cancel the contract. These are the timescales allowed by the Consumer Contracts Regulations:
i. Consumer has 14 days (from receipt of goods) to assess purchase and decide whether to cancel an order. If goods have been dispatched but not been received, Consumer can still cancel transaction - but goods will either need to be returned (if eventually accepted and signed for), or delivery needs to be refused in order that the delivery service can return to sender.
ii. Consumer then has 14 days (after cancellation of order/return request) to return the unwanted goods.
iii. Seller has 14 days (from receipt of returned goods) to process any refund.
The following is compiled from our Terms and Conditions. We recommend that you read our Terms and Conditions in full before returning a purchase. All original packaging should be returned, and the goods should be free from defect. The Consumer Contracts Regulations allows us to make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss of value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by You. The Consumer Contracts Regulations allow 14 days for a reimbursement to be made after the returned goods are received by Us. If You chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of delivery offered by Us the maximum reimbursement of Your original delivery charge will be Our lowest delivery charge. We will not collect any goods from You. The goods must be returned by You (at Your expense).
