Your deadline for cancelling the Contract is 365 days after the date of delivery of any Products provided they are returned to us unused in their original packaging. Please take care of the Products whilst in your possession.
7.3 If you cancel your Contract we will:
- Refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.
- Make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
(i) 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us. For information about how to return a Product to us, see clause 7.6;
(ii) If you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract;

Your refund will be credited to the account from which you made payment to us within 5 to 10 working days. If for any reason it is not possible to refund your payment to the account from which you made payment, we will contact you to discuss the alternatives.
7.4 If you wish to return the Products to us under this clause 7 because they are faulty or mis-described, please contact us at email@example.com to arrange for their return and we will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
7.5 We will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the Product we may refund you in vouchers.

7.7 Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 7 or anything else in these Terms.

We have created a very easy return procedure. Here's how:
If you are not happy with your order, you can return it to us within 365 days after the date of delivery of any products provided they are returned to us unused in their original packaging.
We have created a very easy return procedure. Here's how:
- Make sure the items are in the same condition you received them in, with all tags still attached.
- We will notify you when we have received the goods and then we will then either replace, or refund the cost of the items.
- Please note we cannot accept any climbing hardware or software for return, software is classified as slings and the like. The reason for this is we do not know whether it has been used or not, even if the item still has the tags on and would therefore make it impossible for us to sell.
8.1 We will deliver the products to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate.
8.2 We will contact you with an estimated delivery date, which will be within 5 days after the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order). Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 12 for our responsibilities when this happens.
8.3 If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will leave you a note that the Products have been returned to our premises, in which case, please contact us to rearrange delivery. If there are two or more failed delivery attempts where you have not been at the delivery point at the agreed time, we reserve the right to have the Products returned to us and to arrange to make a full refund to you minus delivery charges.
8.4 Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us and the Products will be your responsibility from that time.
8.5 You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
8.6 If we miss the delivery deadline for any Products then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:
- We have refused to deliver the Products;
- Delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
- You told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
8.7 If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 8.6, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your Order if we do not meet the new deadline.
8.8 If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery under clause 8.6 or clause 8.7, you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them. If the Products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your order, we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.
8.9 If you order Products from our website for delivery outside of the Sweden, 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.
8.10 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.

Where the Product's correct price is less than the price stated on our website, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price; and
If the Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our website, we will contact you in writing 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.
