If any digital content is included in the Goods, that digital content must also conform. If any Goods You have purchased do not comply and, for example, have faults or are damaged when You receive them, or if You receive incorrect Goods, please contact Us as soon as reasonably possible to inform Us of the fault, damage or error, and to arrange for a refund, repair or replacement.
8.2 Beginning on the day that You receive the Goods (and ownership of them) You have a 30 calendar day right to reject the Goods and to receive a full or partial refund if they do not conform as stated above. Alternatively, You may request a repair of the Goods or a replacement. We will bear any associated costs and will carry out the repair or replacement within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience to You. In certain circumstances, where a repair or replacement is impossible or otherwise disproportionate, We may instead offer You a full or partial refund. If You request a repair or replacement during the 30 Calendar Day rejection period, that period will be suspended while We carry out the repair or replacement and will resume on the day that You receive the replacement or repaired Goods. If less than 7 Calendar Days remain out of the original period, it will be extended to 7 Calendar Days. If, after a repair or replacement, the Goods still do not conform (or if We cannot do so as previously described, or have failed to act within a reasonable time or without significant inconvenience to You), You may have the right either to keep the Goods at a reduced price, or to reject them in exchange for a refund. If You exercise the final right to reject the goods more than six Months after You have received the Goods (and ownership of them), We may reduce any refund to reflect the use that You have had out of the Goods.
8.3 Please note that You will not be eligible to claim under this Clause 8 if We informed You of any faults, damage or other problems with the Goods before Your purchase of them; if You have purchased the Goods for an unsuitable purpose that is neither obvious nor made known to Us and the problem has resulted from Your use of the Goods for that purpose; or if the problem is the result of normal wear and tear, misuse or intentional or careless damage. Please also note that You may not return Goods to Us under this Clause 8 merely because You have changed Your mind. Please refer to Clause 9 for details of what to do if You change Your mind.
8.4 Refunds (whether full or partial, including reductions in price) under this Clause 8 will be issued within 20 Business Days of the day on which We agree that You are entitled to the refund.
