Right of Cancellation exercised: where you have validly returned a Product under your right of cancellation described in paragraph 5, The Sports Edit will refund the full amount paid by you for the Product, including the cost of delivery to you. As permitted by law, the maximum refund of costs of delivery will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method The Sports Edit offers (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). Please also note that The Sports Edit is permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Product, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way contrary to the conditions specified in these terms or which would not be permitted in a shop. If The Sports Edit refunds you the price paid before it was able to inspect the Product and later discovers you have handled it in an unacceptable way, you must pay The Sports Edit an appropriate amount. You will be responsible for returning the Product to The Sports Edit at your own cost.
10.1.2. Defective Products: where you have validly returned a Product to The Sports Edit because it is defective or for some other reason for which The Sports Edit is responsible, The Sports Edit will inspect the Product and, where that Product is defective, either repair or replace the Product or, if not possible, refund the full amount paid by you for the Product together with any applicable delivery charges and the reasonable cost incurred by you in returning the Product.
10.1.3. Other returns: where you have returned a Product in circumstances other than as set out above (which includes rejecting a non-defective Product outside the cancellation period or returning a defective Product within a reasonable period of time after receipt), any repair, replacement or refund (in that order) will be at The Sports Edit’s discretion.
