Any information given may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of the information. All information provided by you will be treated securely and strictly in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
- 4.3 If, using our currency selector, you have chosen to display our prices in Euros or US Dollars instead of UK Pounds; you will still be charged and invoiced in UK Pounds sterling as we do not accept foreign currency. At the point of payment, your card issuing bank will convert the amount paid in UK pounds to Euros / US Dollars using their current exchange rate. Please bear in mind our Euro / US Dollar display is a guide and that your bank exchange rate may be different to our online display and will reflect on your card statement.

- CANCELLATION AND RETURNS POLICY
- 6.1 All goods and services are sold in accordance with The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (SI 2000 No.2334). This regulation essentially ensures that the consumer is given clear information about the goods and services the supplier is offering, is provided with an order confirmation via email and has a cancellation period of 30 days from the day after the date of delivery - during which time the consumer may cancel the contract by notifying the supplier of their request to cancel either in writing or by email.
- 6.2 If you wish to cancel your order during the cancellation period set out in clause 6.1, please notify us in writing by letter, fax or by email. A telephone call is not sufficient unless both you and DV247 agree otherwise.
- 6.3 Once you have notified us that you wish to cancel the contract with the cancellation period, either before or after you have received the goods, you should return the goods to us within a reasonable time period and take reasonable care in doing so. The risk and cost of returning the goods to us shall be borne by you unless you have notified us that the goods are faulty and the fault is verified by us. If you fail to return the goods to us, you must make them available for collection upon notification from us that we intend to collect the goods.
- 6.4 Upon cancellation of the contract we will credit your account with a full refund of the money paid to us, including the cost of delivery of the goods to you, as soon as possible and in any event not later than 30 days after receipt of the notice of cancellation. If you do not return the goods or do not pay the costs of delivery to us, we shall be entitled to deduct the direct cost of recovering the goods from the amount of the refund.
- 6.5 Goods should be returned in the original packaging, are complete and in 'as new' condition (for example, if the packaging has been opened to examine the product/s you must have done so without damaging the product/s in any way).
- 6.6 You have a duty to take reasonable care of the products while in your possession and during the cancellation period to maintain them in the condition in which they were supplied by us. If goods are damaged or your use of the goods has gone beyond your right to reasonably inspect and assess the goods, DV247 reserves the right to seek recompense.
- 6.7 The rights to return the goods to us as referred to in clause 6.3 will not apply in the following circumstances: -
- 6.7.1 in the case of copyrighted goods (all software, media and sample CDs) where the packaging has been unsealed and/or the product has been registered
- 6.7.2 for Health and Safety reasons to products such as microphones, headphones, earphones, in-ear monitoring devices and brass and woodwind mouthpieces that have been used or where the hygienic seal has been removed or broken and
- 6.7.3 to any products that we have made to your specification or customised specifically for you
- 6.8 If a fault should occur with your product outside the cancellation period and within the 12 month manufacturers' warranty period, you may wish to take your product to any manufacturer’s authorised repair centre (with a copy of your online receipt from us) or you may wish to return the product/s to our returns department, with a copy of your online receipt and a full written description of the fault. Our returns department can send your faulty product/s to the manufacturer or authorised service centre on your behalf. If the product is found to be faulty we will repair it free of charge and return the product/s to you. If we or the manufacturer are unable to repair your product within a reasonable period of time then we can offer you the choice of a full refund or to supply you an alternative product equivalent
- 6.8.1 Christmas returns policy. If you change your mind, that’s not a problem. For purchases made between 23/11/12 and 24/12/12 you can return your product unopened in its original and undamaged packaging up until 20/01/13 and we’ll give you an exchange or full refund provided you have your receipt. No questions asked.
Standard returns policy is 30 days.
- 6.9 DV247 FOUR YEAR WARRANTY (on new products purchased on or after 01/11/2009)

- 6.9.2 Subject to clause 6.9.3 below, defective products (exceptions listed below) will be repaired free of charge or, at our option, replaced by a fully functional equivalent (in some cases a later version) providing that the products are returned to us, delivery paid and suitably packaged within a four year period, together with a copy of the original sales invoice. Products and product parts which have been replaced by us become the property of DV247.
- 6.9.3 All products (exceptions listed below) are guaranteed for this four year period provided that:
- 188.8.131.52 the products have not been subject to abuse, mishandling, used beyond the limits specified by the manufacturer or DV247 in either written or verbal form, or subject to damage or loss from ordinary use;
- 184.108.40.206 the items are not designed for short term usage or have a natural short life span;

- 18.104.22.168 the products are not powered with an unsuitable power supply, power source or battery or subject to adverse environmental conditions and
- 22.214.171.124 DV247 appreciates that with certain equipment, for example guitar amplifiers, it is not uncommon for customers to undertake minor modifications to the stock product. These will typically be either an upgrade to the stock speaker, or a change of valves. Where these items are readily accessible and the modification accomplished without being invasive into the main circuitry, or requiring any electrical work other than a push-fit connection, DV247 will not deem such modification to be a material change to the product and will not void the DV247 warranty. This is provided that:
- a suitable type of component has been correctly selected and fitted,
- that the installation work itself has not resulted in any damage to the product,
- that the replacement component has not directly caused the damage (for example fitting a faulty or wrong valve type, or a speaker with an impedance rating that is not suitable for the product design), and unless the replacement components have been purchased from DV247, we will not extend our warranty to include the replacement speaker or valves.
- 126.96.36.199 the product is not a wireless microphone product, wireless instrument product or wireless monitoring product, as these are not covered by our 4 year warranty.
- 188.8.131.52 the product is not classified as B-Stock which carries a full 12 month guarantee (if purchased after 28/03/2012) Subject to our usual terms and conditions.
- 6.9.4 The following products are not covered by the 4 year warranty
- 184.108.40.206 All products manufactured by Apple
- 6.9.5 For the avoidance of doubt, any repair or replacement of a defective product within the four year period will not renew or prolong your guarantee beyond that period.
- 6.9.6 In the event that you delay in notifying us of the defect in the product and additional damage is caused by that delay, we reserve the right to reduce our liability accordingly.
