3.2 The images of the Products on this Website are for illustrative purposes only.

- OUR INSTALLATION SERVICES
When forming part of your order, we will supply the Installation Services to you at the same time that we deliver your Products (an “Installation Delivery”). Installation Services may form part of your order at no additional cost, or you may choose to pay for Installation Services to be provided in relation to Products you are buying. In all circumstances, your order will confirm whether Installation Services are provided as part of the Product price or have been requested by you for an additional fee, prior to you confirming your order.
4.1 To enable us to provide the Installation Services to you, we will need to obtain certain information from you, for example, pictures and measurements of the access to the property. Full details of this information will be included on our Website. Before you place your order, you will be asked to provide this information and also confirm certain facts about your property (including access). If any of this information proves to be incorrect, and as a result we incur additional costs, we will be entitled to charge you a reasonable sum to cover these extra costs, or where the error or omission is particularly significant, we may suspend the Installation Services.

In the event that Blue Whale Spa had to return to the address further expenditure would have to be covered by the consumer. In such instances, and where the technical problem is not caused by us, you may be responsible to pay an additional charge, which will be charged to reflect the additional costs we incur to perform the Installation Services for you.

- YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
9.1 As a consumer, you will always have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. Similarly, as a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to services not carried out with reasonable skill and care, or if the materials we use are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
9.2 Nothing in these Terms and Conditions of Sale will affect these legal rights.
9.3 Under The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 SI 2013/3134, you have the legal right to cancel your order up to 14 calendar days after the day on which you receive your goods (with the exception of any made to order items).
9.4 If you wish to return the Products to us under this clause 9 because they are faulty or mis-described, please contact us on 0115 954 1746. In addition to a refund in full for the price of defective Products, we will refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay as soon as possible, together with any applicable delivery charges. We will collect the product from where it was positioned. When a crane or other lifting equipment, or other 3rd party services such as additional manpower has been arranged by the customer to assist with any delivery, the cost of these services is entirely the responsibility of the customer. Should any situation arise where the item delivered needs this same service to remove it from the property, payment of the cost of this third party service will again be entirely the responsibility of the customer, and we will not be liable for any part of the cost of these services.
9.5 We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any Products supplied if the loss is the result of any unnecessary handling by you.
9.6 In addition to these rights, we also offer our customers an additional enhanced manufacturer guarantee for certain Products, and details of these additional rights are available on the Website and will be provided with the Products manual] on delivery.

You will not be able to place an order if we cannot deliver to your postcode.
10.2 We aim to dispatch and deliver Products as soon as possible but we cannot give an exact delivery date at the time you place your order for all of our Products, because many of our Products are made to order.

10.3 When we are ready to dispatch the Products to you, we will send you a dispatch confirmation email, (“Dispatch Confirmation”).

10.13 The risk of any loss or damage to the Products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.

10.18 Installation Deliveries will be completed when we deliver and install the Products to the address you gave us.
10.19 The risk of any loss or damage to the Products will be your responsibility from the completion of the Installation Services.
