Returns policy

We operate a “no quibble” returns policy: you may cancel your order at any time before your order is shipped and up to 14 days after you receive your order. To exercise your right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to do so by a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or email). You may use the model cancellation form that appears at the end of these terms and conditions, but it is not obligatory. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired. Any items to be returned should be sent to Independent Thinking Press (address as above) within 14 days from the day on which you communicate your cancellation of this order to us. Full refund or credit will be given and if you are in the UK we will even refund your postage. All you have to pay is the return postage. This policy does not apply to audiotapes, CDs, DVDs or computer software from which the wrapping has been removed. We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you. We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than –

a) 14 days after the day we receive back from you any goods supplied, or

b) (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the goods.

We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement. In the unlikely event that you have any complaints please contact us at the above address.
