Consumer complaint

We would always advise that in the event of a complaint the first contact is made with the trader by you - preferably in the form a letter (with proof of delivery). If that has not worked, if you are located in the UK, Consumer Direct will give you advice. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre.
 

Other redress

Traders must not sell items which are likely to encourage a breach of the law, are pornographic, offensive or illegal. If there are any grey areas in this respect the decision of the Market Supervisor is final.
