Distance selling regulations give protection to consumers who shop by phone, mail order, via the internet or digital TV.

The protection includes:
• the right to receive clear information about the seller, including a geographical address;
• the right to receive clear information about goods and services before deciding to buy;
• confirmation of this information in writing;
• a cooling off period of seven working days in which the consumer can withdraw from the contract (except with regard to commissioned items); and
• protection from credit card fraud.

Information for consumers about online shopping is available from many sources, including the Consumer Direct Site and the Office of Fair Trading, as well as consumer organisations, magazines and other media.

These conditions and all other express terms of contract shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Scotland.
