This might happen because you start to use the goods. Unless you are returning the goods because of a defect or the goods were not as described, you are responsible for the cost of returning the goods to us.

If you do not pay for the goods or return them to us in accordance with this clause we may collect the goods from you at your expense. We will email to let you know if we intend to do this.
