the item back to you free of charge. Any "loss of earnings" or inconvenience caused as a result of a failure of any item purchased from the seller will not be compensated for.
7.8. Keyboards, mice, speakers, printers, monitors, cathodes and Neon lighting are not covered by the seller's specified free collection and delivery service and will need to be returned to us at the buyer's expense.

7.11. Will I void my warranty if I open the case and install my own components?

You understand that we will in no way support you installing your own components or with any problems you have relating to the components you have installed.
You understand that we have over 30 different measures in place to detect if a component has been moved/removed and if you have moved/removed a component, your warranty will be void. You are only entitled to add extra components to your computer.
Basically, if you add a component to your computer and all goes well, you will still have a warranty. In any other circumstance, your warranty will be void.
If you are unclear about anything, or wish to discuss any possible loop-holes, you understand and accept that you must email us and have written confirmation from us before you make any changes to your computer configuration. Otherwise you are welcome to add components to your computer.

Should you take your computer system, monitor, keyboard or mouse, TV or any other peripheral to another computer company, repair company or computer technician and have them attempt to diagnose or repair a fault on the computer, you may VOID all warranties on the order and we will not cover the costs of any onsite or call out charges as we do not provide or charge you for onsite warranties. If you have any problems with your order you must contact the seller for advice and if necessary obtain an RMA number and return the item to us through the specified returns procedure.

product is returned to us without prior authorisation from us, delivery will be rejected.
