We supply UK government mapping (Ordnance Survey data):
Your rights to return goods are protected under the EU Distance Selling Directive for physically supplied products (eg products that we post):
You are entitled to cancel your order and return the goods within 7 working days for a full refund, including the cost of delivery. Do this by contacting us by email or telephone and quoting the order number supplied to you. Your refund will be paid within 30 days. You are responsible for the cost and risk of loss or damage when returning the goods, so you should take out enough postal insurance to cover their value. This cancellation policy does not affect your rights when we are at fault - for example, if goods are faulty or misdescribed.
Any goods returned should be in the original packaging and in a re-saleable condition.
These terms apply to your order. We may change our terms and conditions at any time, so please do not assume that the same terms will apply in the future.
Digital supplied products under the EU Distance Selling Directive (eg products by email):
Downloads of mapping or data fall under the same category as electronic books or music downloaded from any website, or the purchase of ring tones and screen savers for mobile phones - these examples constitute services rather than goods as the consumer does not receive physical goods. The right to cancel are therefore those that apply to services.
None of these terms affect your legal rights and these are not diminished in any way. If any term is held to be invalid under any applicable statute or rule of law, that term is automatically omitted from the terms to minimum extent necessary to comply with the law and without affecting the validity or enforceability of the remainder.
