  • 12.5 We aim to fulfil the User’s Order within 2-3 working days or if not, within a reasonable period following the User’s Order, unless there are exceptional circumstances. If we cannot fulfil the User’s Order within a reasonable period, we will inform the User at the time you place the Order by a note on the relevant web page or by contacting the User directly after the User places his Order.

If you change your mind about the Services within this period and wish to cancel your order, please inform Us immediately using the following email: [email protected]. Your right to cancel during the cooling off period is subject to the provisions of sub-Clause 13.2.
