Should we deliver the incorrect product/s to you, upon notice from you, we shall, as soon as reasonably possible, resolve the error by delivering the correct product/s to you, at our cost, and collecting the incorrect product/s, provided that the incorrect product/s is in the exact packaging it was received in, with labels attached, in a resalable condition.
