If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. We will contact you to ask for this information if you have not already provided this. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 11.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

7.16 We may also suspend supply of the products if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the products when you are supposed to (see clause 14.4) and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products. We will not suspend the products where you dispute the unpaid invoice (see clause 14.6).

10. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
10.1 You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
10.1.1 If what you have bought is faulty or mis-described you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 13;
10.1.2 If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 10.2;
10.1.3 If you have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 10.3.

10.1.4 In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 10.7
10.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at clauses 10.2.1 to 10.2.5 below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
10.2.1 we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 6.2);
10.2.2 we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
10.2.3 there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
10.2.4 we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 7 days; or
10.2.5 you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong (including because we have delivered late (see clause 7.8).
10.3 Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
10.4 Our 100% money back guarantee (applicable for a period of 90 days, starting from the day of purchase, and issued at our discretion). Please note this guarantee only applies to the MUTU System program digitally delivered and MUTU Life in program upgrade digitally delivered, where bought through this website and not to any other items (for example, the guarantee does not apply to the MUTU System kit bag). We may, at our discretion, issue a refund for the MUTU Kit Bag and this is subject strictly to the kit bag being returned to MUTU System unused and in a re-saleable condition. Failure to comply will result in the price of the kit bag applicable at the time of purchase, being deducted from your purchase price. Please note, these terms reflect the goodwill guarantee offered on the MUTU System program by MUTU System Limited of Hays Galleria, 1 Hays Lane, London, SE1 2RD United Kingdom to its customers, which is more generous than your legal rights under the UK Consumer Contracts Regulations in the ways set out below. This goodwill guarantee does not affect your legal rights in relation to faulty or mis-described products (see clause 13.2).
10.4.1 if you believe the goods, services or digital content delivered to you under these terms do not deliver the content you expected to obtain when you ordered them from us, we will offer you a full refund excluding delivery costs unless the item is faulty. Please tell us why the products did not deliver what you expect – you can contact us by email or telephone or post using the contact details in clause 2.2;
|Right under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013||How our goodwill guarantee is more generous|
|14 day period to change your mind||90 days from the day of purchase, on when you can change your mind (at our discretion).|
|Consumer to pay costs of return.||We pay the costs of return if the item is faulty. However, if you change your mind, we would not refund the cost of postage, only the cost of the product(s)|
10.4.3 you must immediately delete all digital content that has been provided or that you have in your possession;
10.4.4 you accept that we will withdraw your access to the digital content when we issues you with the refund; and
10.4.5 you will not share access details or any material or digital content (including any MUTU System material protected by copyright) with anyone at any time.
10.5 When you don’t have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
10.5.1 digital products after you have started to download or stream these, unless you are exercising our 100% money back satisfaction guarantee explained in clause 10.4;
10.5.2 services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running;
10.5.3 products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them;
10.5.4 sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these products are unsealed after you receive them; and

10.6 How long do I have to change my mind? How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
10.6.1 Have you bought services (for example, private coaching)? If so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
10.6.2 Have you bought digital content for download or streaming (for example, our MUTU Program)? If so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order, or, if earlier, until you start downloading or streaming.

10.6.3 Have you bought goods (for example, our MUTU Kit Bag)?, if so you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless:
(a) Your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.
(b) Your goods are for regular delivery over a set period. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the first delivery of the goods.
10.7 Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 10.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods or digital content is completed when the product is delivered, downloaded or streamed and paid for. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end the contract in these circumstances, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.

11.6.2 The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
11.6.3 Where the product is a service, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
11.7 When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible.
11.7.1 If the products are goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us.

14.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
14.3 What happens if we have got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
14.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment by the credit and debit cards listed at the checkout stage of your online payment on our website. When you must pay depends on what product you are buying:
14.4.1 For goods, you must pay for the products before we dispatch them. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the products to you.
14.4.2 For digital content, you must pay for the products before you download them.
14.4.3 For services, you may have to make an advance payment of a portion of the price of the services, before we start providing them. We will inform you of this at the time of booking. We will invoice you for the balance of the price of the services when we have completed them You must pay each invoice within 30 calendar days after the date of the invoice.
14.5 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
14.6 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know and we will not charge you interest until we have resolved the issue.
15. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
15.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
15.2 When we are liable for damage to your property. If we are providing services in your property, we will make good any damage to your property caused by us while doing so. However, we are not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your property that we discover while providing the services.
15.3 If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.
15.4 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
15.5 We are not liable for you not following our instructions and your attention is particularly drawn to our medical disclaimer at clause 9.
16. HOW WE MAY USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
16.1 How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us:
16.1.1 to supply the products to you;
16.1.2 to process your payment for the products; and
16.1.3 if you agreed to this during the order process, to inform you about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving these at any time by contacting us.
16.2 We will only give your personal information to third parties where the law either requires or allows us to do so.
17. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
17.1 We may transfer this Agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you are unhappy with the transfer you may contact us to end the contract within 7 days of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for products not provided.
17.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. We may not agree if you have not followed our instructions in relation to the products at any point or you have not followed these terms and conditions. However, you may transfer our guarantee at clause 10.4 to a person who has acquired the product or, where the product is services, any item or property in respect of which we have provided the services. We may require the person to whom the guarantee is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the relevant item or property, for example by email confirmation from you stating they are now the owner.
17.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as explained in clause 17.2 in respect of our guarantee. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
17.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
17.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
17.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
