  • (if earlier), 14 days after the day you provide evidence to us that you have returned the goods; or

We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.

We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss of value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you (i.e. in excess of what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods).

Refunds and Exchanges:

Please note that in addition to your general right to cancel set out above, we operate an Exchange, Refund and Cancellation Policy. You should read this policy as it gives you extra benefits. This Policy may be found under Delivery and returns at the bottom of the website.

The advertising of products on the site is the way in which we are able to display all the items available to buy through the site. We aim to keep all products in stock, however due to the nature of this business it is inevitable that we may suffer on occasion from being out of stock on some items due to supply chain issues and demand. When items become out of stock, this will be clearly marked on the site. On the rare occasion you have taken a product to check out which is no longer in stock, we will email you to inform you of this and give you three options:

To wait for the item to become available and process the order at that time (timelines will be given).

To choose an alternative product that is in stock and priced the same as your order for immediate dispatch.

Cancel your order and we will issue a full refund.

Any contracts or agreements formed between yourself and Gemious Ltd through this website shall be governed and construed according to UK law and any disputes or proceedings shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the UK courts.
