Cancellation Policy

Under the Irish Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulation Policy you have the right to cancel the contract for the purchase of any item within seven working days of delivery. This applies to all our printed products.

Here is a summary of the regulations:

Consumers are entitled to a cooling-off period of 7 days, which begins on the day that they receive the product. In the case of a service, the cooling-off period begins on the day the contract for distance selling was concluded or the day written confirmation of the contract was received. During the cooling-off period, the consumer can cancel distance contracts without giving a reason and without incurring charges or penalties other than possible charges incurred in returning the goods. If a supplier fails to provide written confirmation, the cooling off period is extended to three months from the date the goods were received or the contract for the provision of services was completed.

Upon cancellation, the distance seller is obliged to reimburse the consumer within 30 days. Once the contract is cancelled, any credit agreements entered into at the time of the contract will be cancelled as well.

Cancellation will not be accepted, however, in the following cases:

  • The provision of services have already begun with the consumer's agreement
  • The price of the goods or services is dependent upon financial market fluctuations that are beyond the supplier's control
  • The goods cannot be returned because they were made according to the consumer's specifications
  • The goods are audio/video tapes or computer software whose seals have been broken by the consumer
  • The goods are newspapers or magazines
  • The services are gaming and lottery services.
