7. CONSUMERS – THE CONSUMER CONTRACTS REGULATIONS 2013
If you are a consumer, the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 (2013 Regulations) offer you certain cancellation rights when you buy online or by phone. Under the 2013 Regulations you are entitled to cancel your contract if you so wish, provided that you exercise your right to cancel your contract by a clear statement no longer than 14 days after the day on which you receive the goods or services. This right does not apply to certain items (for example, goods/services made or provided to your specification or personalised). If you require further clarification please contact us before placing your order.
If you wish to exercise your right of cancellation, you are obliged to retain possession of any products provided and take reasonable care of them. They need to be returned to us in a re-saleable condition.
In order to cancel your contract under the 2013 regulations, please send us a clear statement to this effect no longer than 14 days after the day on which you receive the products. You can cancel by contacting us on 0131 202 5990, online, or by writing to us at: the lang cat, 6 Quayside Mills, Edinburgh EH6 6EX. So that we can identify your order, please also provide the following information:-
Cancellation of contract under Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013
You must then return the products to us at your cost within 14 days of such cancellation. You will be responsible for any loss or damage to them in transit and we therefore recommend that you use a secure, insured delivery method for returning items (e.g. Royal Mail Special Delivery). Retain your receipt and proof of postage. When we receive the goods we will reimburse (to the credit or debit card of the person who originally placed and paid for the order) the amount in relation to products to which cancellation rights apply. This includes the cost of delivery of products to you where the whole (not part) of the order is returned (except for the supplementary costs arising if you choose a type of delivery other than our standard and least expensive method of delivery).
We may make a deduction from the reimbursement, for example for loss in value of any products supplied (e.g. if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling or use by you, or if we have provided an item free of charge which you don’t return).
8. CREATION OF CONTRACT AND ELECTRONIC CONTRACTING
When you place an order for Services with us, the process required to create the contract between you and us is:
¥ You place the order following the appropriate process on the Site or by otherwise contacting us. You will be guided through the process of placing an order.
¥ We will send you an order acknowledgement (generally by email) detailing your order. This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from us.
¥ Order acceptance and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on the dispatch to you of the items you have ordered, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order.
¥ For most products sent directly by us, your credit/debit card will generally be charged when your order is dispatched.
Non-acceptance of an order may be a result of:
¥ The product you ordered being unavailable from stock.
¥ Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment.
¥ Our inability to fulfill an order due to inconsistencies in information provided by you and an online payment company (for example, when paying by PayPal, we may only be able to deliver to verified delivery addresses as advised to us by PayPal).

¥ Your not meeting eligibility to order criteria set out in this Site or as we might otherwise reasonably determine (for example, regarding bulk, high value or suspicious purchases).
