Returns Policy — Worldwide
Welcome to MC2 Design Ltd
If you change your mind - all products except Gaming PC Systems
For most products bought online, you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. If you wish to return unwanted products, you must let us know within 14 calendar days from the day of delivery. If your products are split into several deliveries over different days, you have 14 days from the date of the last delivery.
Please note that you must return each item in the same condition in which you received it. This means that new items must be returned in their original packaging, unused and undamaged with the seal intact. Faulty items must not have any additional signs of use or damage and must be returned in the original product packaging. Storage items should not have anything installed or have any data input onto them.
Please note we have the right to refuse the return and refund if there are signs of misuse, mishandling and if serial codes do not match with what we sent you i.e. if the serial code on the returned item does not match our records to what we sent you, we can refuse the return.
Any free gifts which were included with your order must also be returned.
Our right to reduce your refund
Please note that we may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. For example, if you have opened the packaging causing damage to the original packaging, and as a result we cannot re-sell the product.
If you have returned your product, but before doing so you claimed any software that is included with your product, we may also reduce your refund to reflect the benefit you have received from claiming the software.
If you change your mind - Gaming PC Systems only
If you change your mind in relation to your Gaming PC system, you must return it to us within 30 days of delivery. Returned Gaming PC systems must be in their original packaging, include any accessories and be in "as new" condition.
If you have input or installed data onto your Gaming PC system, please ensure that all data is removed before you return it. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to erase all of your data.
When the right to change your mind does not apply
The right to change your mind does not apply:
If the seal has been broken on any DVDs, CDs, memory cards or software (including games)
If the silver strip on the back of your Software Product Activation Key card has been partially or completely damaged or removed or tampered with, and or unsealed headphones/headsets, for hygiene reasons. If an order or product was customised specifically for you, and the product is not in the range of products we generally offer.
Refunding you when you have changed your mind
Once we have received the products back from you, we will issue a refund for the cost of the product (subject to any deductions set out in “If you change your mind” above). Your refund will be issued to the original method you used for payment. You will receive your refund within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you.
The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option. If your order was eligible for free delivery, then no refund for delivery will be made.
Please also note that charges for services that have already been provided (such as priority build charges) will not be refunded.
If the returned item(s) affect any promotional discount or offer then this will be adjusted in your refund. Accessories and promotional items are part of the order and must be returned to ensure a full refund is given. Free games codes should be unused and still hidden.
Please ensure you enclose the correct and complete item when making a return. The correct item must be returned to receive a refund. If serial codes do not match against our records of items dispatched to you, we reserve the right to refuse the return. If you have accidentally sent the wrong item, please contact us as soon as possible.
If products are faulty
All products are guaranteed for 30 days from the date of delivery. You must return the faulty item within 30 days to receive a refund. After 30 days each item will revert to its own manufacturers guarantee which could be between 12 months - 24 months.
Any faulty item received after 30 days will need to be sent to its respective manufacturer for repair or refund. This process could take anywhere between 6-8 weeks or more.
Please see “How to Return Products” below. If the fault relates to bright or dark/dead pixels, please contact Customer Services so that we can advise you further. This is because not all pixel defects are necessarily considered to be faults, and different manufacturers have different polices in relation to pixel defects.
Please note that this guarantee does not extend to:
- Defects that arise as a result of fair wear and tear, damage caused by you or another user to the products (whether deliberate or accidental), or your failure to look after the products properly
- Where you use the product in a way we do not recommend, or you do not follow our instructions in relation to the product
- Where you have customised or altered the products without our prior written approval.
Any such damage, use, customisation or alteration will invalidate your warranty.
The guarantee also does not cover software or faults that arise as a result of the use of software.
Before you return a product for testing, please make sure that you have backed-up your data. If it is not possible to repair the defect, your data may be lost.
If you let us know about the fault within 30 days of delivery, and inspection and testing shows that the item is faulty, you have a choice of a full refund, or to have the product repaired or replaced.
If a fault arises between 30 days and 12 months of the date of delivery, again please return the product to us so that we can inspect and test it. If faulty, in most cases it will be proportionate for us to repair it. If it is disproportionate to repair it, we will replace it instead.
If it’s not possible for us to offer a repair or replacement, or if after a repair or a replacement the fault is not resolved, you can choose to keep the product and receive a partial refund or return the product and receive a full refund.
Sometimes manufacturers provide support direct to end users. The main reason for this is that they would like to ensure that their customers receive the best possible support on their products. If we refer you to a manufacturer your issue will invariably be dealt with a lot quicker.
If products are misdescribed
If the product does not meet its description, if you let us know within 30 days of delivery you can choose either a replacement or full refund (via your original payment method), which we will process once we receive the product back from you. If you let us know after 30 days, you will be entitled to a replacement. If it's not possible for us to offer a replacement, or if after a replacement the misdescription is not resolved, you can choose to keep the product and receive a partial refund or return the product and receive a full refund.
How to return products
To return products please obtain an RMA number from Customer services. You must enclose the RMA with your return for us to refund it.
For any products, if you are returning them because you have changed your mind, you must return the products to us within 14 days of telling us you no longer want them.
The return is at your cost. You have the option of using our preferred courier at discounted rates. Please ask Customer Services for a pre-paid label, the cost of which we will deduct from your refund. If you choose to use your own courier, please ensure you use a reputable provider and a recorded delivery service as you are responsible for the products until we receive them. We will not be responsible for products that are damaged in transit before they reach us. You may wish to insure more expensive items.
If you are returning faulty or misdescribed goods, please contact Customer Services for a pre-paid returns label. If it is not convenient for you to use the pre-paid returns service, you can return the products at your own cost. If you choose to do this, once we have verified that the product is faulty, we will reimburse your reasonable return carriage costs.
If you do use your own courier, please return your products to MC2 Design Ltd, 11 Federal Road, Perivale, UB6 7AW. Your RMA number should be clearly visible on the outer packaging to avoid any processing delays.
When returning products to us (regardless of the reason), it is your responsibility to make sure that the products are properly packaged (ideally in the original packaging). Products should be returned with all accessories and documentation.
Unfortunately we cannot accept any returns where the serial number and/or other identifying marks have been removed. Without these, we are unable to confirm that the product returned was purchased from us.
Returning items that have been tested and are not faulty
If we test a returned item and it is found not to be faulty, we will return the item to you at your cost.
For customers located outside the UK, it is often not cost effective for us to return a non-faulty product to you, due to additional import and other charges we will have to pay. If this is the case, we will provide you with a full refund, but we will deduct any delivery costs that we covered when you returned the product to us for testing.
Damage in Transit
If any items were damaged in transit, we ask that you report it to us as soon as reasonably possible and within 5 working days. (This is the timescale within which we must report damage to our courier partner). If the items are visibly damaged on receipt, please refuse the delivery and contact us to let us know. Please return the products as set out in “How to return products” above. You can choose either a replacement or full refund (via your original payment method), which we will process once we have received the products back from you.
Item Missing or Incorrect Item
If there is an item missing from your order or the wrong item has been sent, then please contact Customer Services as soon as possible, and we will do our best to resolve the problem.
