51. If you are a Consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract (under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013) during the period set out below in clause 52. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep the Goods, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract under these regulations is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
52. You can cancel the Contract except for any Goods which are made to your special requirements by telling us no later than 14 days after you received the product, if you simply wish to change your mind and without giving us a reason, and without liability, except in that case, you must return to any of our business premises the Goods in undamaged condition at your expense. Then we must without delay refund to you the price for those Goods which have been paid for in advance, but we can retain any separate delivery charge. This does not affect your rights when the reason for the cancellation is any defective Goods. This Returns Right is different and separate from the Cancellation Rights below.
53. However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of any made-to-measure or custom-made Goods or Goods made to your specification or clearly personalised. This exception to the right to cancel includes any wood or other materials cut to a length or dimension specified by you and where goods are inseparably mixed with other goods after their delivery (e.g., wood that has been painted by the customer).
54. To cancel a Contract, please contact us in writing to tell us by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a letter to GG Joinery, Horne Park Farm, Bones Lane, Lingfield, RH7 6HR.

57. If we have offered to collect the Goods or if no Goods were supplied, we will make the refund without undue delay, and not later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this Contract.
58. If you have returned the Goods to us, because they are faulty or misdescribed, we will refund the price of the defective Goods in full, any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.

61. Except as set out below, if you cancel this Contract, we will refund to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us).
62. We may make a deduction from the refund for loss in value of any goods supplied if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you. This is because you are liable for that loss and, if that deduction is not made, you must pay us the amount of that loss.
63. Because you are a Consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Goods that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Goods that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in these Terms and Conditions. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
64. You have a legal obligation to keep the Goods in your possession and to take reasonable care of the Goods while they are in your possession. ‘Reasonable care’ will include, but not exclusively, refraining from and ensuring that the following does not occur to the goods:
