The Photographer will use reasonable efforts to remedy problems with the Photographer’s Services as quickly as is reasonably possible and practical.

As a consumer, you have certain legal rights with respect to the purchase of services. For full details of your legal rights and guidance on exercising them, it is recommended that you contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office. If the Photographer does not perform the Photographer’s Services with reasonable skill and care, you have the right to request repeat performance or, if that is not possible or done within a reasonable time without inconvenience to you, you have the right to a reduction in price. If the Photographer’s Services are not performed in line with information that the Photographer has provided about them, you also have the right to request repeat performance or, if that is not possible or done within a reasonable time without inconvenience to you (or if the Photographer’s breach concerns information about the Photographer that does not relate to the performance of the Photographer’s Services), you have the right to a reduction in price. If for any reason the Photographer is required to repeat the Photographer’s Services in accordance with your legal rights, the Photographer will not charge you for the same and will bear any and all costs of such repeat performance. In cases where a price reduction applies, this may be any sum up to the full Price and, where you have already made payment(s) to the Photographer, may result in a full or partial refund. Any such refunds will be issued without undue delay (and in any event within 14 Calendar Days starting on the date on which the Photographer agrees that you are entitled to the refund) and made via the same payment method originally used by you unless you request an alternative method. In addition to your legal rights relating directly to the Photographer’s Services, you also have remedies if the Photographer provides goods that are not of satisfactory quality, not fit for purpose, not as described, or not in accordance with models or samples shown (unless differences have been brought to your attention).

Any digital content that the Photographer supplies to you must be of satisfactory quality, it must be fit for purpose (where any such purpose has been made known to the Photographer, whether expressly or by implication), and it must match any description and other information given by the Photographer. Due to the nature of digital content you are unable to reject digital content which does not comply with the above; however you may have the right to a repair or replacement or, if these are not possible, to a price reduction up to the full Price. In cases where a price reduction applies and you have already made payment(s) to the Photographer, you may be due a full or partial refund. Any such refunds will be issued without undue delay (and in any event within 14 Calendar Days starting on the date on which the Photographer agrees that you are entitled to the refund) and made via the same payment method originally used by you unless you request an alternative method.
