Returning Undamaged or Non-Defective Goods 

In order to keep our charity costs to a minimum, we can only accept the return of items if they are faulty or were supplied in error and, unless the product is defective, you will not be able to return any product that is not in its original packaging, i.e. unopened and with any seals or shrink-wrapping intact. 

The following goods cannot be returned: 

  • Goods which according to their nature are not suitable to be returned, deteriorate rapidly or where the date of expiry is over. 
  • Goods which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons and were unsealed after delivery. 
  • Goods which are, after delivery, according to their nature, inseparably mixed with other items. 
  • Items in a bundle can only be returned together. 
  • We reserve the right to refuse returns of any merchandise that does not meet the above return conditions in our sole discretion.

If you wish to return unopened goods that meet the above criteria you have 30 days from point of purchase. 

Please also be aware that you shall be responsible for any return delivery charges, and the risk of loss or damage to the goods that you are returning until they have been received by us. For your protection, we recommend that you use a recorded-delivery service when returning goods to UK Wild Otter Trust.
