  • A Refund

The above options are only available provided that the goods:

  1. Are in a saleable condition (i.e. it can still be sold as a new item);
  2. Are unused, still in the original packaging, with all tags attached;
  3. The original packaging is not damaged in anyway;
  4. The exchange or refund is sought within 14 days of purchase;
  5. The goods are not subject to any of the Change of Mind Exclusions listed below;
  6. If the goods included a bonus item or gift item with the purchase, the bonus or gift item must also be returned in a saleable condition, otherwise the value of any available exchange or refund will be reduced by the value of the gift or bonus.

If you are unable to provide a valid receipt and/or 14 days has passed since the original purchase date, Adept Direct at its absolute discretion reserves the right not to offer an exchange or refund for change of mind return.
