You must return the Products with their original packaging and invoice. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products whilst they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.

If we give you the option of cancelling your order or reconfirming it at the correct price and/or description but either cannot contact you or do not receive your response within 14 days of sending you notification (whether or not you receive it), we will reject your order.
If we discover an error after sending you a Confirmation Notice we may, at our discretion and without incurring any liability to you, cancel the Contract provided that the error is, in our reasonable opinion, obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized by you. We will notify you if we cancel the Contract. If your order is cancelled or rejected and you have already paid for the Products, you will receive a full refund.
We will examine any returned Products and will notify you about your refund or replacement item via email within a reasonable period of time. Refunds will be made by crediting the payment card or electronic payment account you used to Purchase the Products.
We reserve the right to refuse to issue a refund or replacement and to recover the cost of returning or collecting the Products in the event that the Products are found to have suffered damage after delivery or have been misused or used other than in accordance with any applicable guidelines or instructions or if the goods have not been returned with their original packaging.
6. SERVICE-RELATED TERMS AND CONDITIONS
General. We provide a number of different services intended to benefit patients who manage chronic conditions whilst connected to medical bags, including our Patient Care Program, our Telehealth Program and our Nurse Program. The provision of these and any other services provided by us or on our behalf are subject to these Terms and Conditions. Full details regarding our Services are available on our Website.
Patient Care Program
Our Patient Care Program, which is designed to provide individualised engagement and support for ostomy patients, employs qualified health coaches involved in this Patient Care Program (“Patient Coaches”) who are, typically, actual patients who have been trained on the Products, tested our technology and provided real time feedback on how to improve our platform.
By enrolling in the Patient Care Program through downloading the Alfred App, you agree that the Patient Coaches may contact you and/or your designated caregiver(s) by phone (including mobile phone if that is the number you provided), text message (sms), videocall, e-mail, hard copy letter, or other means of communication but only for the purposes referred to above.
You also give us your permission to interact with:
your hospital medical team or other healthcare provider;
Patient Coaches you interact with as part of the Patient Care Program;
nurses and/or doctors (whether ours or provided by a third party) you interact with or who are involved in the Patient Care Program; and
an IV infusion service (whether ours or provided by a third party) if you are prescribed fluids by a doctor.
You also give us your permission to interact with any product supplier in connection with the support you receive through the Patient Care Program.
You understand that you can unsubscribe at any time if you no longer wish to receive communication from us related to your participation in the Patient Care Program. You can do so by sending us an email at email@example.com.
By downloading the Alfred App you are automatically enrolled in our Telehealth Program, which utilizes data collected via our Products and the Alfred App, and which enables us to establish an alert that is triggered if certain medical protocol levels are breached. The Service will route the alert through our Telehealth Program in accordance with our protocols to determine if a doctor needs to decide, based on the data from the Products, whether or not to prescribe fluids to you.
If this service is available in your area and if the doctor prescribes intra-venous fluids, we will notify either:
our home care company, or
a third-party IV infusion service to which we will pass your details and whose responsibility it will be to come to your premises and deliver the infusion in your home. You hereby consent to the sharing of your details as aforesaid.
General Service Disclaimer
We will use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver the Services in a professional and timely manner consistent with industry standards. HOWEVER, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE POSITIVE RESULTS FOR ANY OF OUR SERVICES. ADDITIONALLY, IF A SERVICE IS PROVIDED BY AN INDEPENDENT SERVICE PROVIDER, WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF SUCH PROVIDER.
7. PRICE AND PAYMENT TERMS
We reserve the right to charge for our Products and Services or to provide them free of charge. In cases in which a charge will be imposed, such charges will be based on prevailing rates based on the specific Service, the payer category and other related factors, as determined by us and industry practices. Unless otherwise stated, those prices apply only to Purchases for delivery within the Territory and exclude sales taxes (if any) and delivery costs. Any applicable delivery costs will be added to the total amount due from you at their current rate. Details of our delivery charges can be located on our Website.
We reserve the right, by giving notice to you at any time before delivery or performance of our obligations to you, to increase the price of the Products or Services to reflect any increase in the cost to us due to any factor beyond our control (such as, without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation, significant increase in the costs of labor, materials or other costs of manufacture). In the unlikely event of this occurring, you will be entitled to cancel the order at any time before delivery of the Products or performance of the Services.
Payment for Purchases from the Website can be made by most major prepay, credit or debit card or through an electronic payment account as explained on the order form. By placing an order on the Website, you, or any entity individual acting for you or on your behalf, consent to payment being charged to your (or their) prepay/debit/credit card account or electronic payment account as provided on the order form. Payment will be debited and cleared from your (or their) account before the delivery of Products or the performance of Services.
When you pay for your order by card, we, or our third party vendor or service provider, as the case may be, carry out certain checks which include obtaining authorization from your card issuer to ensure you have adequate funds and for security reasons. This may involve validating your name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third-party databases including the card issuer, registered credit reference agencies and fraud prevention agencies. You hereby consent to all such checks.
By accepting these Term and Conditions, you:
Represent that: (i) all the details you provide to us for the purpose of purchasing and receiving the Products or Services are correct and that the payment card you are using is your own and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the Products ordered; (ii) any and all Products or Services ordered by you, or by an entity or individual acting for you or on your behalf, are for your own private or domestic use only and not for resale.
Authorize us to transmit the payment and delivery information provided by you during the order process (included any updated information) for the purpose of obtaining authorization from your card issuer to ensure you have adequate funds, to authenticate your identity, to validate your payment card and for other security reasons, such as fraud prevention. We will contact you should any problems occur with the authorization of your card.
We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of gross negligence on our part, we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from our Website.
