If the order is rejected, we will contact you to confirm this and arrange for reimbursement of your payment. In the event that the Services are produced and prior to dispatch are then discovered to be in breach of these Terms, we will not dispatch the Services. We may, at our sole discretion, refund all or a proportion of the payment made in respect of the order concerned but reserve the right to charge in full as if the Services had been dispatched.
