Cancellation of your Order
If after Paper Whites has accepted an order from you (acceptance will be communicated via e-mail on receipt of an order), and you wish to withdraw from the contract, you may do so by communicating that wish to us as soon as possible. In the event that the goods have already been dispatched please refer to the Returns policy below.

Paper Whites offers a full refund on all goods that you may be dissatisfied with (this includes Sale items). Customers who send back unwanted goods that are not damaged will only receive the value of the item purchased not the delivery costs.

Unsuitable or defective items may be returned for refund or exchange providing they are received within 7 working days of the original delivery date in brand new, unused condition, in the original undamaged packaging (with labels intact) and accompanied by a note stating your name, address, email address, contact telephone number, order number, the reason for the return and what refund/exchange you require.

We will consider the overall condition of the product being returned when making a refund. Paper Whites holds a limited amount of stock at any given time, therefore unwanted goods should be returned as soon as possible.

As soon as we receive your goods we will process your request for a replacement item or refund. We will notify you via email as soon as your request has been processed.

You will need to pay the cost of returning goods to us, unless the goods are defective in which case you will receive a full refund including your postage and packaging costs. Proof of return and postage may be required should an item be lost in transit. Neither refunds nor replacements can be made until such proof is provided. We strongly suggest you get a Certificate of Posting from the Post Office when you send an item back.

All refunds are applied to the credit/debit card used to make the original purchase unless otherwise notified. Refunds will be furnished within 30 days of the agreement to refund.

If you have requested a refund, or replacements of a lower value than the returned goods, a refund will be credited back to the card used to pay for the original order. We will let you know as soon as the refund has been processed.

If you have requested replacements of a higher value, any difference due will be charged to the card used to pay for the original order.

The address for any returns is SEL (T/a Paper Whites), Selbrae House, Muirhead, Midfield, Kirkcaldy, KY1 3PS. For further information on our returns policy please contact us on 01592 654 222.

Statutory Rights

The following terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

Product Availability

Although we endeavour to provide you with the item requested, occasionally we may be unable to fulfil an order due to unavailability of certain items. In this case, you will be informed as soon as possible and will be given the choice to wait for more stock to become available, cancel the order or order a different item.

Website Images

We make every effort to ensure that the images displayed on our website are as accurate as possible. However, product images displayed on the website may occasionally differ from the respective product names and descriptions due to changes in packaging and/or availability. Please also note that, as slate is a natural mineral, each piece is individual and will differ slightly from the others. We therefore cannot guarantee an exact match to the product as displayed on your screen.
