If the order is not collected within those 10 days, we will assume it is unwanted, cancel the order and issue a refund to your original payment method, in accordance with Clause 10.3 (Exercising your right to change your mind).
9.10. Receipt of the Products. By placing an order for delivery through our Site to an address, you authorise us to deliver to one of the following recipients:

We will have no liability to you in the event that we cancel the Order in these circumstances.

9.14. Your legal rights if we deliver late. You have legal rights if we deliver any Products late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any Products then you may treat the contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply.
9.14.1. we have refused to deliver the Products;
9.14.2. delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
9.14.3. you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
9.15. Setting a new deadline for delivery. If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under Clause 9.14 above, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
9.16. Ending the contract for late delivery. If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under Clause 9.15 above, you can cancel your order for any of the Products or reject Products that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those Products (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery. If the Products have been delivered to you, you must either return them to us or allow us to collect them from you. See Clauses 11.1 and 11.2 (How to return Products) for details of how to return Products to us.

(b) make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result.
9.17.3. 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.

If you are cancelling an order for a reason set out at Clause 10.2.1 to 10.2.4 below, the contract between us will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any Products which have not been provided.

We, in particular, may engage third-party carriers to deliver, or make available for collection, the Products which you order. Such transfers will not affect your rights under these Terms of Sale.
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 of Sale to another person if we agree to this in writing.

We may require the person to whom such rights are transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the relevant Product.
17.3. Nobody else has any rights under this contract. These Terms of Sale are not intended to benefit, or be enforceable by, any third party (except as explained in Clause 17.2 above).
