This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product, because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified or because we are unable to deliver to the location you have specified.

7. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
7.1 You have rights to end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
(a) If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back). If there is a problem with the product see clause 10;
(b) If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 7.2; or
(c) If you have just changed your mind about the product, see clauses 7.3 to 7.5 and clause 8. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods. We will also charge you for any damage to any goods that you return that has not been caused by us.
7.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (d) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided. The reasons are:

(b) any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
7.5 How long do I have to change my mind? How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.

However, if we start the services during the cancellation period on your written request, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind and still pay us for any goods that you have purchased with the services.
(b) Have you bought goods (for example, a metal garden shed)? If so you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, Please note that if we have installed goods that you have bought from us and you still have the right to change your mind in respect of those goods you will be responsible for the costs of uninstallation of the goods and must return them in an undamaged state. If you wish for us to uninstall the goods our current installation fees are available on our website. You will be responsible for the goods until we collect or we commence uninstalling them, whichever is sooner. As the shed has been built we cannot re-sell it so there will be a 30% deduction in any refund due plus £150 collection fee.

However please see clause 11.5 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
11.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.

14.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
