8.2 For the sale of products, the period stated in 8.1 lapses 14 days after:

the day on which the End User or a third party appointed by the End User physically takes possession of the goods unless:
a) when ordering multiple goods that are delivered separately, the day on which the End User or a third party appointed by the End User, who is not the transporter, physically takes possession of the last item of merchandise;
b) in case of a delivery that consists of different shipments or parts, the day on which the End User or a third party appointed by the End User physically takes possession of the last shipment or the last part;
c) for agreements regarding the regular delivery of goods over a set period, the day on which the End User or a third party appointed by the End User physically receives the first delivery of the goods.

8.3 For the provision of services, the period stated in 8.1 lapses 14 days after the day DACS emails you to confirm acceptance of the order. However, once DACS has completed the services the End Customer cannot change their mind, even if the period is still running. If the End Customer cancels after commencement of the services, the End Customer must pay for the services provided up until the time DACS is told of the change of mind.

8.3 The End Customer will carefully handle the purchased product during the 14 day cancellation period. The product can only be used to the extent necessary to determine the nature, characteristics and effect of the product.

8.4 To end the contract with DACS, please do one of the following:
Phone or email.
Online. Complete the Contact form on the website.
By post. Print off the form and post it to DACS at the address on the form.

8.5 The risk and burden of proof for the correct and timely exercise of the right of cancellation lies with the End Customer.

8.6 When exercising the right to cancel:
a) DACS may reduce the refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If DACS refunds the price paid before DACS is able to inspect the goods and later discovers they have been handled in an unacceptable way, the End Customer must pay DACS an appropriate amount.

b)The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method DACS offers. For example, if DACS offers delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but the End Customer chooses to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then DACS will only refund what would have been paid for the cheaper delivery option.

c) Where the product is a service, DACS may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when the End Customer told DACS it had changed its mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.

8.7 DACS will receive all payments from the End Customer immediately and in any event within 14 days after the day on which DACS was notified about the fact that the End Customer wishes to draw upon the repayment right of cancellation. DACS will reimburse the End Customer by means of the same payment method as used by the End Customer. The reimbursement will not involve any costs for the End Customer.

8.8 The End customer does not have a right to change of mind:
8.8.1 upon completion of the services, even if the cancellation period is still running, provided that the services commenced with the express consent of the End Customer and provided that the express acceptance by the End Customer of the fact that the right of cancellation expires after completion of the services;
