(7) Delivery

When selling physical Products, we will arrange for the Products to be delivered to the address for delivery indicated in your Order. However, if paying by credit card or SWITCH debit card, to maintain security, we will only arrange for Products to be delivered to the address of the credit card or SWITCH holder.

We will use reasonable endeavours to deliver Products on or before the date for delivery set out in our Second Acknowledgment or, if no date is set out in our Second Acknowledgment, within 14 days of the date of our Second Acknowledgment.

(9) Consumer rights

You may cancel this Agreement at any time within 14 working days after the day you received the Products (subject to the limitations set out below). Digital Products made available for download are non-tangible irrevocable goods. Logging in to the InternetTIPS.com member area may also provide access to non-tangible irrevocable goods. Therefore, you will not have any such right insofar as this Agreement relates to: (i) the supply of any Products or Digital Products which constitute domain name sales or audio or video recordings or computer software or ebooks or templates which have been unsealed or downloaded by you from the Site, or (ii) for the provision of service of access to the member area of InternetTIPS.com, or (iii) after purchasing a domain name.

By purchasing a domain name through InternetTIPS.com or from any facility provided by Brian Austin, you understand and agree that all domain name sales are final once payment has been made for a domain name. To protect both parties, ownership of each relevant domain sold is transferred to the buyer using a suitable escrow service.

If you cancel this Agreement on this basis, you must inform us in writing and return any physical Products to us immediately, in the same condition in which you received them. Products returned by you within the 14 working day period referred to above will be refunded in full (including the cost of sending the Products to you). However, you will be responsible for paying the cost of returning any Physical Product to us. If you cancel this Agreement on this basis and you do not return the physical Products to us, we may recover the physical Products and charge you for the costs we incur in doing so. Similarly, if you return the physical Products at our expense, we may pass that expense on to you.

(10) Defective Products

You may also cancel this Agreement if the physical Products supplied are defective. Products returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full (including the cost of sending the Products to you, and the cost of returning the Products to us). Alternatively, if we and you agree, we may supply you with a replacement or substitute Product.

(11) Refunds

If you cancel this Agreement and are entitled to a refund, for amounts up to £250 (or US dollar equivalent) we will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any event, within 30 days of the day we received your notice of cancellation. For amounts over £250 (or US dollar equivalent), this procedure is not applicable (see High Value Items below). This does not affect your rights under Scottish law.

For subscription membership of InternetTIPS.com, since we may also offer non-tangible irrevocable goods, we do not issue refunds after the subscription membership is made. You are responsible for understanding subscription membership conditions upon registering at our site. InternetTIPS.com subscription membership fees are neither transferable or refundable. If for some reason, the service does not live up to your expectations, you are free to cancel at any time by email or, if available, using the Unsubscribe option. If you cancel your membership of InternetTIPS.com, you're welcome to keep all of the information gathered up to the date and time on which you cancel, plus any free ebook gifts and files that you may have downloaded during your active subscription period: no quibbles, questions or delay. If you opt to cancel, no further subscription payments are due.

For sales of domain name sales, as non-tangible Digital Products, all domain name sales are final once payment has been made for a domain name.

Refund relating to high value items such as workshops, seminars and residential tutorial training courses

Occasionally, we may offer high value items such as workshops, seminars and residential tutorial training courses the require individual attendance. Payment for workshops, seminars and tutorial training courses, must be made in advance of the event or start of the event. If you make a payment for a workshop, seminar or tutorial training course, and subsequently cannot attend, or wish to cancel, simply let us know in writing (letter or email) at least 7 days before the event is due to start. Any costs relating to your purchase of which we have paid in advance, such as hotel accommodation, meals, etc., and for which we can recover will be deducted from your refund. If we do not receive any cancellation request in writing at least 7 days before the event is due to start, our attendance at the event constitutes full delivery and provision of the Service. No refunds are permitted for any reason whatsoever once the event has taken place, unless if we state in our pre-sale advertising, that any attendee wishing to leave on or before lunch of the first day, will be entitled to a refund or partial refund.

For workshops, seminars or tutorial training courses that last longer than one day, after the first day, the event will have deemed to have taken place, and full provision of the Service will be considered to have been provided, so no refunds will be allowed for any reason after the first day has elapsed. If you cannot attend due to circumstances beyond your control, on provision of suitable evidence to support your request and completely at our discretion, we may offer goods or services of equivalent value, or offer you a suitable place at a future seminar free of charge.
