8.2 If You are within the Europe, the DSRs give You seven (7) Working Days to inspect the Product upon delivery and to opt to exercise your right of cancellation.

If You cancel Your order, please do so by sending an email to mail@sherriffs.info (with “CANCELLATION” in the subject line), or by writing to the Supplier B.J.

You agree to return the Product in full, in a resalable condition and securely packaged (properly repacked in the original packaging if it was removed from it).

We will make all refunds to the card used for payment.

You will have to pay the costs of sending the order back to us. We will not refund any postage and packing charges if You cancel after the seven (7) days allowed under the Distance Selling Regulations or if You only cancel part of Your order (although You still have twenty-eight (28) days to return Your Products and receive a refund for the cost of the Products as indicated on the Returns Form).

8.8 If You cancel Your order under the DSRs and We do not receive them back from You, We may charge a collection fee for the cost of having the Product collected on Your behalf which should be approximately the same as the initial cost of delivering the Product. You agree that We may set-off the collection fee against any sums being refunded to You. If You are returning Your Product because it is damaged, faulty or does not substantially conform to the Product Information, no collection fee may be charged.
