    2. We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.
    3. We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than:

    5. If you decide to cancel a pre-order, a full refund is offered until the day on which goods are dispatched. Your order, however, cannot be cancelled from our supplier, and for this reason we reserve the right not to entertain future business with customers for this reason. Please keep this in mind when placing pre-orders with us.
    6. If you have received goods:

We similarly reserve the right to resend the item as opposed to issuing a refund. If an offer is made to resend but declined, we reserve the right to deduct 50% from the value of the refund in order to cover losses in such unusual circumstances. It is also company policy not to entertain future orders from customers placing non-tracked orders and reporting goods missing, until goods are returned to us as undelivered.
