Certain goods are exempt from this cooling off period, for example a special order or goods which are personalised or made to a personal specification.

5.4 If applicable any related credit agreements will automatically be cancelled if the order is cancelled within the cooling off period mentioned in point.
5.5 If you do not return the goods to us we shall be entitled to deduct the direct costs of recovering the goods from the amount to be refunded to you.
6. TRANSFER OF TITLE
6.1 Title to goods shall only pass to the Purchaser from the date of payment in full of all sums payable to the Seller under the contract by which those goods were supplied or any other contract. Until such time, goods remain the absolute property of the Seller and the Purchaser shall keep them insured to their full invoice value. Such goods shall be stored in such a way that they are readily identifiable and the Seller shall be entitled to repossess such goods at its entire discretion and at any time prior to payment in full therefore. Such repossession shall not affect in any way the continued existence of any contract between the parties. If goods in which title has not passed to the Purchaser are subjected to any process, addition or treatment, the property in the goods so processed, added to or treated, shall be vested in the Seller until title has passed.
6.2 All goods sold by the Purchaser to third parties before title has passed to the Purchaser, shall be sold as agent for the Seller and all proceeds received from such sales shall be held by the Purchaser in trust for the Seller, until payment in full of all amounts outstanding has been received by the Seller.
6.3 Not with standing that property in any goods has not passed to the Purchaser, the Seller shall be entitled to sue the Purchaser for the price of such goods if not paid on the due date.
7.1 Any time for the delivery stated by the Seller will be an estimate only on the likely time required to effect delivery from the date of receipt by the Seller of full and final instructions. The Seller will make every reasonable effort to comply with such estimate but the Purchaser shall have no right to damages or to cancel any contract with the Seller by reason only of failure on the part of the Seller to meet any stated delivery time.
7.2 The Seller will endeavour to comply with reasonable requests by the Purchaser for postponement of any stated delivery date but shall be under no enforceable obligation to do so. In the event of any such postponement at the request of the Purchaser, the Purchaser shall pay to the Seller on demand all costs and expenses thereby incurred including a reasonable charge for storage thereby occasioned.
7.3 When the goods are sold “carriage paid” by the Seller, delivery shall be deemed to take place at the moment the goods are lifted from the delivery vehicle and thereafter the goods shall be at the risk of the Purchaser in all respects.
8. DAMAGE IN TRANSIT
8.1 No claim for goods damaged or lost in transit will be accepted by the Seller unless written notification of such damage or loss is given to the Seller as soon as reasonably practicable on receipt of the goods by the Purchaser and all damaged goods are retained by the Purchaser pending inspection by the Seller and carrier.
9.1 If any defect in workmanship or materials shall manifest itself in any goods supplied by the Seller within 12 months of the date of delivery thereof provided always that the goods shall have been found not to be to specification the Seller shall have the right at its sole discretion to replace free of cost to the Purchaser (other than the cost of carriage) any such goods or parts thereof and the Purchaser shall be obliged to accept such replacement in full satisfaction of its claim and shall also return to the Seller at the expense of the Purchaser the goods originally delivered or such defective part thereof as may have been replaced. If the Seller shall fail to replace such goods or parts thereof any amount recoverable by way of damages from the Seller by the Purchaser shall be limited to the difference between the value of the goods at the time of the delivery to the Purchaser and no claim whatever by the Purchaser shall entitle the Purchaser to withhold payment of the price of any goods or to any right of set-off against any payment due to the Seller under any contract made by the Seller and the Purchaser, nor will any claim made by the Purchaser entitle the Purchaser to reject any goods supplied and treat the contract as repudiated and any remedy of the Purchaser shall be in damages only as hereinafter provided.
