Our customers' right to a refund of purchase price
Our customers are entitled to a refund if the item is faulty, not of merchantable quality or not fit for its purpose.
Natural Necessity's policy under these circumstances is:

(b) not "of merchantable quality", meaning that it is not of the quality that you reasonably expected when you purchased it, bearing in mind the way the item was described to you before purchase and also the price of the item; or
(c) not fit for it's purpose, meaning that the item does not do what you reasonably expected it would;
and you return the item within a reasonable time after purchase and provide Natural Necessity with proof of purchase, such as your Natural Necessity receipt or bank statement. If you do not return the item within a reasonable time, you will not be entitled to a refund at the purchase price but you will be entitled to exchange the goods or have them repaired.
Natural Necessity reserves the right to ask you to demonstrate that they did not cause or create the fault in the item.
If you are entitled to a refund but you would prefer to exchange the item or receive a credit note of equvalent value to the item, Natural Necessity is happy to do this for you.
