» 7. OUR RETURNS AND REFUNDS POLICY (IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER)

7.1 If you cancel a Contract for any reason, or reject the Product(s) for being faulty, we will collect the Product(s) from you for free. We will telephone you (using the number you included in your order) to confirm certain details in order to arrange the collection. For small, low-value items, we may decide not to collect the Product, and will instead send you a pre-paid, padded envelope, which you can use to post the Product back to us. You will need to send the Product(s) back to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you have given notice of your cancellation.

7.2 Please note that if your order includes Cylinder Gas, and you cancel the Contract, either under the fourteen-day period as set out in paragraph 6, or for any other reason (e.g. defective Products), the collection of the Cylinder will be at a different time, and possibly a different day, to the collection of the other Product(s) that you are returning.

7.3 If you cancel a Contract, all ancillary contracts you have entered into associated with the cancelled Products will be automatically cancelled (for example, the Calor Refill Agreement but subject to return of the Cylinder to Calor).

If you cancel the Contract within 14 days for any reason

7.5 If you cancel the Contract within 14 days for any reason (see paragraph 6.2), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case:

(a) if we have collected the Product(s) from you, no later than 14 days after the day on which you have given notice of your cancellation; and

(b) if we ask you to post the Product(s) back to us using the pre-paid envelope, no later than 14 days of us receiving either the Products or proof that they have been returned (whichever is the sooner).

7.6 We will refund the price that you paid for the Product in full, including any costs of standard delivery (if you have selected a different delivery option, we will only refund up to the amount of our usual standard delivery costs). You should take reasonable care of the Product(s) while they are in your possession as we have the right to make a deduction from any refund due to you if the Product(s) are not returned in a reasonable condition. In particular, we reserve the right to deduct a sum from the refund of the price for the Product(s) to reflect the reduced value of the Product(s) if the Product(s) have been handled more than is necessary (i.e. in a way which would not be permitted in a shop).

If the Product is faulty or defective

7.7 If the Product is faulty or defective, you should contact us by sending us an email to shop@calor.co.uk or by telephone on 0800 1814512. If you contact us by email, our first action will be to call you on the phone number in your order to discuss the issue with you. We will examine the returned Product(s) and notify you within a reasonable time by telephone if you are entitled to a refund. We will process the refund for defective or faulty Product(s) as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days of us agreeing that you are entitled to a refund.

7.8 If you exercise your “short term” right to reject the Product(s) within 30 days of delivery (see paragraph 6.4), we will refund to you the full price of the Product(s) including any delivery changes. We may ask you for evidence that the defect was there at the time of delivery or further information about the defect.

7.9 If you exercise your “final right” to a refund (having requested a repair or replacement and this having been unsuccessful – see paragraph 6.5(b)):

(a) within 6 months of the date of delivery - we will refund to you the full price of the Product(s) including any delivery charges. In such circumstances we will assume the fault was there as at the time of delivery unless it is obvious that this is not the case; or

(b) after 6 months from the date of delivery - we will refund to you the price of the Product(s) but this may be reduced to take into account any use you have had from the Product(s). In such circumstances we may require you to prove that the defect was there at the time of delivery.

» 8. AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY

8.1 Products are subject to availability. In the event that we are unable to supply the Products, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available, we will telephone you as soon as possible (and no more than 48 hours following receipt of your order) and we will not process your order. If possible, we will give you the option of continuing with your order with a longer delivery lead time or continuing with part of your order. A full refund will be given where you have already paid for any Product(s) which cannot be suppliedas soon as possible, by the same method in which the payment was originally made.

8.4 Products will be dispatched by one of our fulfilment agents or, in the case of Cylinder Gas, either by us or a Calor Gas dealer. Important: where your order is for more than one product, please note that we use different fulfilment agents across our range of products. Due to the need to comply with health and safety legislation relating to the transport of gas cylinders, these may be delivered by a separate delivery vehicle therefore, we are unable to guarantee that all the items in your order will be delivered at the same time, or on the same day.

8.5 Time for delivery shall not be of the essence. This shall not affect any rights which you may have as a consumer.

8.6 Delivery will be made to the address specified by you when you place your order. This must be an address within mainland Great Britain. Please note that for safety reasons, deliveries are not made to flats which are above four stories and we do not deliver to basement storeys in any circumstances. Please note that deliveries to flats of up to four stories are only permitted if the flats areof traditional build (to be determined in our reasonable opinion). We may cancel the Contract if the delivery address is to a flat above four stories or is of non-traditional build.

8.7 You must ensure that someone is available to take delivery of the Products (see paragraph 8.4 above about multiple deliveries). You must also ensure that suitable access is available for the purpose of delivery of the Products. If you fail to take delivery of the Products or fail to ensure that suitable access is available for the purpose of their delivery then we willattempt to redeliver the Products at another time.

8.8 It is your responsibility to arrange inspection of the Products immediately upon delivery. You will be required to confirm receipt of the Products by signing a delivery note when taking delivery. However, your inspection of the Products and your confirmation of receipt does not affect any rights you may have if the Products are defective on delivery.

8.9 Any delivery charges will be clearly marked on our site and at the checkout and added to your order.

» 9. RISK AND TITLE

However, if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered, please see paragraph 10.5 below.

10.2 Prices on our site include VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being.

(b) if a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site at the time you placed your order, we do not have to provide the Product(s) to you at the incorrect (lower) price as the Contract between us will not yet have been formed. We will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct (higher) price or cancelling your order.

If there is anything you do not understand, please call your local Calor Centre.

1.2       These terms and conditions apply to the supply of Gas in our Cylinders at your Address.

1.3       At the start of the Agreement we will supply and connect the number of Cylinders, filled with Gas, shown on Page 1. One half of the number of Cylinders will be supplying Gas at any one time, with the rest in reserve. As Cylinders are emptied of Gas, the supply is automatically changed to the reserve Cylinder(s).We will be automatically notified by the attached telemetry and will replace the empty Cylinder(s) with Gas filled Cylinder(s). You will be charged on the basis of the Gas filled replacement Cylinder(s). For more details on charging, see clause 7 below.

1.4       We agree to install and maintain our  Cylinders  and  Equipment  (consisting  of the pigtails, changeover device and any telemetry unit) at your Address for the storage, control and regulation of Gas and to supply you with Gas under the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You agree not to use the Cylinders other than for the storage of the Gas supplied by us or on our behalf. Where separately  agreed, we will also install (at a price to be agreed) base, screening and extra service pipework as indicated on the Installation Sales Agreement, all of which will become your property once installed.

2.       Ownership of and Responsibility for Cylinders, Equipment and        Service Pipework

2.1       The Cylinders and Equipment remain our property at all times and we (and only we) will maintain them.

2.2       The “Service Pipework” is the pipe (if any is installed) which takes Gas from the outlet of the Equipment to the entry point of your Address.

2.3       It is agreed that you own the Service Pipework, and it is your responsibility to maintain and if necessary replace the Service Pipework.

2.4       Ownership and maintenance of the Cylinders, Equipment and Service Pipework is dealt with in clauses 1.4, 2.1 to 2.4 above. You own any installation pipes, fittings or appliances after the outlet of the Equipment and maintenance of such pipes, fittings or appliances is your responsibility, unless you have entered into a separate maintenance contract with us.

3.       Installation

It is your responsibility to lay and maintain a suitable base and dig a trench at your expense unless otherwise agreed and shown in the Installation Sales Agreement. Where this Agreement includes the installation of Cylinders, Equipment and service pipework, the following provisions apply:

This Agreement may be terminated immediately by us by  written notice if any payment by you is not made 28 days after it has become due under clauses 3.4 or 7 above or if you fail to observe any important term or obligation of this Agreement which significantly affects our relationship. You may terminate this Agreement by written notice if we are in fundamental breach of the terms of this Agreement. If you terminate this Agreement before the end of the Minimum Period other than (i) under clause 9.1.1 above, or (ii) under clause 13 (events beyond the control of either of us) below, or (iii) for our fundamental breach, we reserve the right to recover from you, as well as any other amounts you may owe us for Gas, Standing Charges, interest, initial charges as set out on page 1, or any special offers given to you at the start date of this Agreement, installation costs not already paid by you and any administration costs we have incurred (not exceeding £30) in addition to our right to remove our Cylinders and Equipment under clause 9.2 below and to charge you the uplift charges under clause 9.3 below.

9.3       Uplift Charges

Where applicable, the cost of uplifting the Cylinders and Equipment is £100 + VAT. Whilst we will take care at your Address we will not be liable for any damage or disturbance caused by such works.

If we fail to enforce any of the conditions of this Agreement at any time this will not be taken as a precedent stopping us from enforcing those conditions at any subsequent time.

13.     Events Beyond Your or Our Control

Neither we nor you will be liable for failing to carry out any of the terms of this Agreement to the extent that we cannot do so because of circumstances beyond   our control. However, we must each use all reasonable efforts to bring an end to such circumstances as soon as possible. If such circumstances continue for a period longer than three months, then whichever party is not affected by the circumstances may terminate this Agreement by giving one month’s notice in writing.
