For contractual purposes, you consent to receive communications electronically from us and you agree that all notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. This condition does not affect your statutory rights related to electronic communications.

Verification of information provided by you may be required prior to the confirmation or acceptance of an order or completion of any purchase. You will have an opportunity to review your order, and to correct any input errors, prior to submitting your order to us.
4.3 Your order constitutes an offer to us to purchase a product, service and/or digital content and we will confirm receipt of your offer via the email address you provide to us. No charge of your credit card or other payment instrument by or on behalf of Trader constitutes an acceptance of your offer. We reserve the right to accept or reject your offer in our discretion. Note that we only deliver products and/or provide services to your address in the UK and we do not deliver products and/or services to other countries. Your order is accepted by us when we send an email confirmation to you that we have shipped the product and/or the third party service provider has started to provide service to you and/or digital content is made available for download or activation. We will inform you by email if a product, service and/or digital content you ordered is unavailable or if we will be unable to ship a product, provide the service and/or digital content within the estimated delivery dates.
4.4 All relevant sales information shall form an integral part of the contract and shall not be altered unless we have expressly agreed otherwise.
5.1 Save where you do not have a right of rescission as per clause 5.7, you have a period of 14 days to rescind the contract, without giving any reason, and without incurring any costs other than those provided for in this clause 5. The rescission period will expire after 14 days from:
a. in the case of service contracts or contracts for online digital content, the day of the conclusion of the contract;
b. in case of sales contracts for products, the day on which you or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires physical possession of the products, or:
i. in the case of multiple products ordered by you in one order and delivered separately: the day on which you or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires physical possession of the last product;
ii. in the case of a contract relating to delivery of a product consisting of multiple lots or pieces: the day on which you or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires physical possession of the last lot or piece;
iii. in the case of a contract for regular delivery of products during a defined period of time: on the day on which you or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires physical possession of the first product.
5.2 To exercise the right of rescission, you must inform us of your decision to rescind this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or using contact details provided to you as per clause 2.1). You may use the attached model rescission form, but it is not obligatory. You may also electronically submit the model rescission form or any other unequivocal statement on our website using our Contact Page in which case we will communicate to you an acknowledgement of receipt of such a rescission on a durable medium without delay. For most efficient processing of your rescission we suggest that you first contact our call centre at +44 (0)3717601020 for further detailed instructions. You shall have exercised your right of rescission within the rescission period if the communication concerning the exercise of the right of rescission is sent by you before that period has expired. The exercise of the right of rescission shall terminate the obligations of the parties: (a) to perform the contract; or (b) to conclude the contract, in cases where an offer was made by you. If you exercise your right of rescission, any ancillary contracts shall be automatically terminated.
5.3 If you rescind the contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including, if applicable, the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs if you have expressly opted for a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed of your decision to rescind this contract in accordance with clause 5.2. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise and provided you do not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the products back or until you have supplied evidence of having sent back the products, whichever is the earliest.
5.4 You shall send back the products to Asplex sp z.o.o, ul. Graniczna 8 D-E, 54-610 Wroclaw, Poland or hand them over to us , without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you have communicated your decision to rescind the contract to us in accordance with clause 5.2. The deadline is met if you send back the products before the period of 14 days has expired. In consideration of risk of loss or damage of products as implied under clause 6.6, we recommend that you use a carrier that allows tracking and monitoring of delivery status for your returns. For most efficient processing of your return we suggest that you contact us at the telephone number indicated to obtain a return merchandize authorization (RMA) number prior to returning your product.
5.5 You shall only bear the direct cost of returning the products. You are only liable for any diminished value of the products resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products.
5.6 If you want the performance of (the agreement for) services to begin during the rescission period provided for in clause 5.1(a) we require that you make an express request. You acknowledge that you will lose your right of rescission once the (agreement for) service has been fully performed. If you exercise the right of rescission after having made such request, but before the (agreement for) service has been fully performed, you shall be liable to pay us reasonable costs, consisting of an amount which is in proportion to what has been provided until the time you have informed us of the exercise of the right of rescission, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract. The proportionate amount to be paid by you to us shall be calculated on the basis of the total price agreed in the contract. If the total price is excessive, the proportionate amount shall be calculated on the basis of the market value of what has been provided.
5.7 In the following situations you do not have a right of rescission:
a. service contracts after the service has been fully performed if the performance has begun with your prior express consent, and with the acknowledgement that you will lose your right of rescission once the contract has been fully performed by us;
b. the supply of products or services for which the price is dependent on fluctuations in the financial market which cannot be controlled by us and which may occur within the rescission period;
c. the supply of products made to your specifications or clearly personalized;
d. the supply of products which are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly;
e. the supply of sealed products which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons and were unsealed after delivery;

g. the supply of computer programs, applications, games, music, videos or texts on sealed tangible medium (CDs, DVDs, memory cards, etc.) which were unsealed after delivery; and
h. the supply of online digital content if the performance, such as start of the downloading or activation of a computer program, has begun with the your prior express consent and acknowledgment that you thereby lose your right of withdrawal.
5.8 The burden of proof of exercising the right of rescission in accordance with this clause shall be on you. Except as provided for in this clause 5, you shall not incur any liability as a consequence of the exercise of the right of rescission.
