3 Your rights to cancel
You have the right to cancel an order but we may not be able to prevent it being shipped to you. If you receive your order after you have cancelled it this means we were unable to prevent it being shipped and you must therefore return the goods in accordance with our Returns Policy below.

All instructions to cancel must be clear and quote the acknowledgement number on the email you have received at the time you placed your order.
