If you supply incomplete or incorrect information or do not supply the necessary information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, we may end the contract. We will not be responsible for supplying the Products late if this is caused by you giving us incomplete or incorrect information or failing to provide the necessary information within a reasonable time of us requesting it.

At this point, the contract is active and we will make arrangements to dispatch the Products to your stipulated delivery address, provided your order clears our fraud check process. We will also provide you with an order number. It will help us if you can tell us your order number whenever you contact us about your order.

In such an instance, you must keep the Products in your possession, take reasonable care of them (following any instructions or manuals given with the Products) and not use them before returning them to us.
3.6 Failure to return Products which have not been paid for within 14 days, entitles us to collect the Products from you at your expense, including any loss of value the Products may have incurred while in your possession.
3.7 The price of the Products is listed and payable in pounds sterling (£)(GBP) for Products purchased in the UK.
3.8 The price includes VAT (and other applicable taxes) at the applicable rate and the cost of standard delivery. The price excludes the cost of any Special Delivery of the Products or delivery to the Channel Islands.

5.7 In the unlikely event that something outside of our control affects the estimated date of delivery, we will notify you of the revised estimated date for delivery of the Products as soon as possible. We will take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of such delay and provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by events which are outside our control. Nothing in this clause affects your legal rights to cancel the contract.

7. Right to cancel and return
7.1 As a statutory minimum you have the right to cancel any contract for sale with us and return any Products within 14 days of delivery of those Products without giving any reason.
7.2 Should you wish to return a pillow, duvet, fitted sheet or mattress protector, the Product must remain ‘as delivered’ and, where possible, in its original packaging. In accordance with Section 28(3)(a) of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, we consider that these products are not suitable for return where they have been used because of hygiene reasons and, as such, we reserve the right to refuse any returned pillow, duvet or mattress protector which has been unsealed after delivery or exhibits any evidence of use within the first 14 days.
7.3 Alternatively, we may, in accordance with Section 34(9) of the Consumer Contract (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, deduct any value lost as a result of your unreasonable handling of the pillow, duvet or mattress protector. (i.e. any use beyond what is necessary to establish their nature, characteristics and functioning). In the event that we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, we will require you to pay an appropriate amount for the value lost.
7.4 To exercise your statutory right to cancel a contract with us, you must clearly notify us of your intention to cancel within 14 days of the date of delivery, or in the event you are cancelling the contract under our 100 night trial, within 100 days of delivery (per clause 8.3). In each you should notify us by email, phone or in writing. Such a notice should include: your name; address; order number; date of order; date that your product was received.
7.5 Following a notice of your intention to cancel, collection must be arranged and executed no later than 14 days from the date that you notified us of your intention to cancel. Failure to arrange collection may, save any exceptional circumstances (which must be communicated to us, and acceptance of same being subject to our discretion), invalidate your right to cancel the contract.
7.6 Any return of idyll Products; whether pursuant to your statutory rights; our mattress 100 night trial (clause 8); or our mattress or pillow guarantee (clause 12); may only be made in the territory in which the Products were delivered and to the original point of sale from which they were bought. For example, Products purchased on our website should be returned directly to us by first contacting email@example.com to arrange the return. Products purchased from an authorised retailer should be returned to that retailer, using their contact details located on their website. If there is any doubt as to who to contact for a return, please contact us prior to returning your product.
7.7 Delivery and collection of Products must occur to and from the same address, and save exceptional circumstances, which must be communicated to us, collections must be completed during the same visit as the delivery.
7.8 Ensuring that your product is in a returnable condition in line with clause 7.2 at the time it is lodged, whether by post or by having the Product picked up, is your responsibility. We may decline to accept any product which has been damaged in any circumstances (including, but not limited to, you leaving a mattress outside your premises rather than awaiting pickup, allowing it to become water damaged). Where you return a product which is not in a returnable condition in line with clause 7.2, we will send that Product back to you, the expense for such return will be borne by you.
8. 100 night trial
8.1 As a goodwill gesture, we agree to extend your right to cancel your order of an idyll mattress for any reason to 100 days. All we ask is for you to tell us the reason for your cancellation. Failure to provide a reason may delay the collection of your mattress, but ultimately will not void your right to return the mattress under the 100 night trial.
8.2 The period to cancel expires at 24:00 on the 100th day since the date the mattress was delivered.
8.3 This right must be exercised within the 100 day period by the same method stipulated in clause 7.4.
8.4 A collection date must be arranged between the Parties in accordance with clause 7.5.
8.5 You may only make and cancel a mattress order once under the 100 night trial (per mattress line). Any subsequent mattress ordered of the same type will not have the 100 night trial period.
8.6. For the avoidance of doubt a purchaser who buys two different types of mattress will have a 100 night trial in respect of the first mattress ordered in each mattress line.
8.6 Where a claim is made under the mattress guarantee or your statutory rights, in accordance with clause 11, and a replacement mattress is delivered to you, your 100 night trial will be paused and will continue upon receipt of the replacement. Claims under these rights will not limit your entitlement to 100 nights (in total) to trial the mattress (or any replacement).
8.7 The 100 night trial is offered on the basis of goodwill and, as such, we reserve the right to refuse to honour the 100 night trial without prior notice in circumstances we see fit, including, without limitation:
(a) where you are associated with a mattress manufacturer or brand;
(b) where there is evidence that the mattress is stained, ripped, torn or which suggests or otherwise indicates the mattress has sustained any other damage whether due to negligence, wilful damage, neglect or otherwise; or
(c) where idyll suspects any dishonesty, misrepresentation or misconduct on your part.
Except that, your statutory rights remain unaffected.
8.8 The 100 night trial applies to mattresses only and no other idyllProducts.
8.9 Nothing in this clause affects your legal rights to cancel the contract under clause 7.
8.10 The 100 Night Trial referred to in this clause 8 is only available for new mattress purchases, either directly from us, or from a retailer who has been authorised by us to offer you the 100 Night Trial.
8.11 The 100-night trial may be offered in other circumstances at the sole discretion of idyll.
9. Effects of Cancellation
9.1 If you cancel your contract for sale of a Product in accordance with clauses 7 (under your statutory rights) or 8 (under the 100 night trial), subject to these terms, we will refund to you all payments received from you in relation to the contract, including the costs of delivery, except for any supplementary costs arising because of a delivery to a remote postcode.
9.2 We will refund you without undue delay, and not later than:
9.2.1 14 days after the day we received back from you any Products supplied, or
9.2.2 If earlier, 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the Products, or
9.2.3 If there were no Products supplied, 14 days after the day on which you notified us of your intention to cancel the contract.
9.3 We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment you used for the initial transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise. In any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement save those specified in clause 9.1.
9.4 If you have received a mattress, we will ask you to communicate an appropriate date for collection, which must be no later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your cancellation. If the date you proposed is agreed by us, we will collect the Products on the date stipulated without undue delay. Failure to communicate with us to arrange collection within the period allowed will void your rights to a return under the 100 night trial.
9.5 For the purposes of mattress collection, you are responsible for ensuring that the conditions and arrangement of your property are such that your mattress can be collected safely and without damage to your property (or any fixtures or items contained therein). In the event that a collection is reasonably deemed to carry more than a trivial risk of damage to your property (or any fixtures or items contained therein) by the collection agent, then you may be required to sign a disclaimer absolving the collection agent of liability in respect of the collection and any damage which results therefrom. Refusal to sign such disclaimer will result in the collection not being executed. Neither idyll nor the collection agent will have any liability in respect of the foregoing circumstance.
9.6 If you have received a pillow, mattress protector, fitted sheet or duvet it can be packaged and sent back to us in accordance with our normal returns process.
9.7 You are responsible for packaging and passing the Products to our third-party collection company (bed bases must be disassembled). We ask that you retain the original packaging for the purposes of returning a Product. If this is not possible, please package the Product in suitable alternative packaging.
