Under the Directive on Consumer Rights (2011/83/EC), which replaced Directive 97/7/EC and the UK Distance Seller Regulations (DSR) on 13 June 2014, you may cancel the purchase of an item within 14 days from when the item is received.
Where the item is sent using a tracked service, the date used to calculate the 14 day withdrawal period will be the date on which the item was delivered according to the online tracking information.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform NRG IT Ltd of your decision to withdraw from this contract in writing (which can be via email) within the 14 day withdrawal period.
You are required to send the goods back to us within 14 days from when notice of the cancellation is given. You must bear the cost of returning the goods in all circumstances and we recommend using a tracked and insured courier service.
We will refund all payments received from you, including the initial cost of delivery if applicable (except where you have a requested a type of delivery other than our standard delivery type, such as pre-12pm or weekend deliveries).
The refund will be issued within 14 days from when you notified us of your decision to cancel, although we may withhold the refund until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of shipping, whichever is the earliest.
The refund will be carried out using the same method of payment used for the original transaction, unless you expressly agree otherwise, and you will not incur any fees as a result of the refund.
Under the Consumer Rights Act 2015, you may cancel the purchase of an item that is found to be faulty within 30 days from when the item is received.
Where the item is sent using a tracked service, the date used to calculate the 30 day withdrawal period will be the date on which the item was delivered according to the online tracking information.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform NRG IT Ltd of your decision to withdraw from this contract in writing (which can be via email) within the 30 day withdrawal period.
If the item includes an NRG IT warranty, we may offer you either a repair or replacement instead of a refund. If you choose to accept the offer of a repair or replacement, you will retain a final right to a refund if the repair/replacement did not resolve your original issue.
If returning faulty goods, NRG IT Ltd will refund reasonable return shipping charges upon safe receipt of the goods and confirmation of the fault.
The cost of return shipping that we consider “reasonable” will be dependent on the number and size of items being returned, as well as the type of shipping service and insurance applied. If you are unsure whether your chosen return shipping method is considered “reasonable”, or if you are unable to organise return shipping at any reasonable price, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
Please note that we can only refund reasonable return shipping charges with a valid receipt showing the total amount paid. Please either include the receipt with your returned item or send us a scanned copy via email.
All refunds for faulty items under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 will be processed in the exact same way as a standard consumer return under the Directive on Consumer Rights.

Notification must be in writing and ideally within 48 hours from date of delivery, but in any case no more than 14 days from the date of dispatch. If no notification is received within this time, the customer is deemed to have taken possession of the item and any damage discovered after that time will be treated as accidental damage while in the customer's possession.

a. A “dead” pixel – the pixel does not function on any colour and appears dark or black at all times;
b. A “stuck” pixel – the pixel is only displaying a single colour;
c. A “bright” pixel – the pixel displays the correct colour, but is brighter than surrounding pixels.
9. The allowance for faulty pixels above does not include any faulty pixels indicated in the original listing.
10. The allowance for faulty pixels in point 8 and 9 only applies to faulty pixels that develop after time. The warranty covers even a single faulty pixel on arrival, provided that the buyer notifies NRG IT Ltd in writing (email is fine) within 14 days from the date of delivery.

For all other locations, our standard shipping fees will apply. Please refer to the Delivery page for a full list of shipping charges.
7. If the buyer notices a fault with an item when it first arrives (including damage in transit) and notifies NRG IT Ltd within 14 days from the date of delivery, then NRG IT Ltd may choose at their discretion to treat the claim as if the item has an Advanced Exchange Warranty rather than Return to Base Warranty, and if so the warranty claim will be resolved using the Advanced Exchange Warranty terms below.
ADVANCED EXCHANGE WARRANTY TERMS
Note: this type of warranty was previously referred to as the NRG IT On Site Warranty. Any purchase made on or before 22nd November 2016 where the products were advertised with an On Site warranty will use the below terms. Please note that only the name of the warranty has been changed. The terms of the warranty and the way in which it operates are unchanged.
The following terms apply specifically to any Advanced Exchange (AE) warranty offered by NRG IT Ltd, regardless of length:
1. Advanced Exchange warranty terms only apply to customers in the United Kingdom (excluding Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, the Isles of Scilly, the Scottish Highlands and Scottish Islands).

4. The courier will collect the faulty item at the same time as the replacement is delivered. The buyer is responsible for ensuring that the faulty item is securely packaged ready for collection.
5. The Advanced Exchange includes all replacement/repair costs and associated shipping costs.

a. NRG IT Ltd will organise a collection of the item to bring back to the NRG IT Ltd warehouse for repair.
b. Where a repair is not possible, whether this is determined before or after the item has been returned, NRG IT Ltd will offer the buyer an exchange for a comparable model of the same or similar size and specification.
c. Where neither a repair or a replacement is possible, NRG IT Ltd will instead offer the buyer a refund of their original purchase price. Please note that this would be a discretionary refund not covered by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013, and so NRG IT Ltd reserve the right to make reasonable deductions from this refund based on the length of time the item has been in use.
7. The buyer is responsible for notifying NRG IT Ltd of any address changes for the lifetime of the warranty.
COLLECT AND RETURN WARRANTY TERMS
The following terms apply specifically to any Collect and Return (CR) warranty offered by NRG IT Ltd, regardless of length:

4. The buyer is responsible for ensuring that the item is securely packaged and safe from damage in transit. Where possible NRG IT Ltd recommend that buyers retain the original packaging for the item (external and internal) in case a warranty claim is required.

NRG IT Ltd reserves the right to request confirmation of the packaging, including pictures, prior to booking the collection.
5. If the item being returned under the warranty is a computer (whether that is a desktop, laptop, All in One PC or gaming console), or otherwise has its own internal storage, the buyer is responsible for ensuring that any and all data on their system is securely backed up prior to collection (either on an external device or using online storage). NRG IT Ltd will make every effort to keep a buyer’s data safe and secure, but depending on the nature of the issue this is not guaranteed, and NRG IT Ltd cannot be held liable for any loss of data.
