2 YOUR STATUS
2.1 By placing an order through our site, you warrant that:
2.1.1 you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;

2.1.3 you are placing the order as a consumer, i.e. an individual is acting outside his or her business if you are buying as a guest or if you are logged in as a consumer; or you are placing the order as trade only if you are a verified trade customer and logged in to the trade account you are registered to.
2.2 If we discover that any of the above warranties are incorrect, we shall be entitled to terminate the contract between us and to pursue any legal remedies that we may have under the general law.
3 HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
3.1 Your order for a Product or Service constitutes an offer to buy the Product or Service and all orders are subject to acceptance by us. After placing an order you will receive an order confirmation email from us acknowledging that we have received and accept your order. Please note that this email doubles as your receipt. The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation.
3.2 Where you have ordered a Product, the Contract will relate only to those Products we confirm in the Order Confirmation.
4 RIGHT OF CANCELLATION
4.1 If you are contracting as a consumer, you have the following statutory rights to cancel a Contract:
Where you have ordered a Product, you may cancel a Contract for any reason at any time within 14 days, beginning from the time the contract is concluded between us and ending 14 days after the day on which you receive the Products.
Where you have contracted to buy a Service (this will include those instances where we, or a third party we have sub-contracted, are conducting a site visit, installing a product or carrying out image alterations to your specific specifications), you may cancel a Contract for any reason at any time within 14 days, beginning on the day after the Contract was entered into. However, by agreeing to these terms you agree that we may start image alterations or sub-contract services for site visits and installations that you have ordered before the end of the cancellation period and your right to cancel your order will therefore end when we start providing the service.
4.2 If you are contracting as a trade customer, you have same rights to cancel a Contract as are listed in Clause 4.1 for consumers.
4.3 If you exercise your right to cancel, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products or Services in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in paragraph 8 below). Orders cancelled after the term set out in 4.1 will be charged at the full product value, excluding delivery if items have yet to be shipped. To cancel a Contract under your statutory rights, you must inform us in writing of your intention to cancel by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4.4 When exercising the cancellation right in relation to a Contract for Products which have already been delivered to you, you must return the Products to us immediately. See paragraphs 8.3 and 8.4 as to the manner and cost of returning the Products.
4.5.1 Whilst every effort is made to ensure you receive Products in the best possible condition errors may occur and damage may occur in transit. You are entitled to a reasonable opportunity to inspect the Products, which should be done on receipt of goods. Murals and window film should be inspected prior to cutting.

If you are in breach of your obligations to take reasonable care in this paragraph 4.4, we will have a claim against you and may deduct from the refund costs incurred by us as a result of the breach.

This paragraph does not affect your statutory rights and in particular our obligation to perform the Contract within 30 days of order as set out in paragraph 5.
13.2 Such delay or non-performance will not be a breach of the Contract and the time for performance will be extended by the period during which performance is prevented.

If either of us does not insist upon strict performance of any of the other’s obligations under the Contract or any of these terms, or if either of us does not exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under the Contract, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve the other of us from compliance.
