The Contract will relate only to the goods we have confirmed the dispatch of in the dispatch confirmation email.

You may have certain legal rights in relation to goods that are not as described, faulty or otherwise not fit for purpose (depending on the location from which you are purchasing the goods).
In respect of consumer buyers within the EU:
- we are obliged to supply you with goods (and where relevant digital content) that are in conformity with the contract;
- we will repair, replace or provide a refund in relation to goods which are in non-conformity (goods which are not as described, which are not fit for their purpose or which are broken/damaged on delivery) within two years of delivery (or such longer period which may apply under the laws of the country in which you are resident). Note that in circumstances where the non-conformity is minor in nature you do not have an entitlement to a refund in respect of such goods. We will provide a repair, replacement or refund as is appropriate and required in the circumstances.
- Cancellation and Order Return
9.1 Discretionary Cancellation Right
Here at Digital Motorsports we like to make things as easy as possible, if you are not completely satisfied with your on-line purchase, you can return it free of any administrative or handling charges. However, you must pay the postal/transportation costs associated with the return. The item must be unused with original packaging and returned to us within 14 days of purchase for an exchange or full refund, less transportation, shipping or postal costs.
As noted, we do not cover the cost of return postage (unless the reason for the return is due to the fact that the goods are faulty or damaged). If you are within the Republic of Ireland you can drop the package to your local Post Office or simply follow the steps on returnmyshopping.ie. If you are located outside of the Republic of Ireland we suggest using your national postal service to return the goods. If the goods are not received by us we shall not be obliged to exchange or refund the item. When you return goods you are responsible for and assume risk in the goods until such time they have been received by us.
9.2 Cancellation Rights of Consumers within the EU
If you are resident in the EU, the above Digital Motorsports discretionary cancellation, return and refund policy is in addition to your “cooling off”/cancellation rights under EU law. These “cooling off” rights shall only apply to a person who purchases goods as a consumer buyer and is resident within the European Union where additional rights apply, as follows:

- To exercise your right to cancel the contract, you must, before the end of the 14 day ‘cooling off’ period, inform us of your decision in writing, for example, a letter sent by post or email. Alternatively, you may, but do not have to, use our Model Cancellation Form available You must return the goods to us as soon as possible, in the same condition in which you received them (you may only handle them as is necessary to establish their nature, characteristics and functioning), and at your own cost and risk.

- We recommend that you use a recorded delivery service when returning the goods or otherwise obtain official proof of posting or insurance cover to the value of the goods you are returning.
- If you fail to return the goods within 14 days of cancellation, we will be entitled to collect the goods from you and to recover any reasonable costs involved in such collection from you.

- We will pay any refunds due less non-standard delivery costs.
- Such a refund will be subject to any set off of monies to which we are entitled under these clauses.
