In this case, if you return the Goods to us, we will have to charge you the cost of collection or you will have to pay the cost of returning the Goods back to us. This will not affect your refund for the Goods themselves, but we will not refund any charges for delivery and any charge for collection will be deducted from the refund that is due to you.
11.2 Unfortunately, as the made-to-measure Goods are made to your requirements, you will not be able to cancel your Order once made (but this will not affect your legal rights as a consumer in relation to made- to-measure Goods that are faulty or not as described).
