- The Cancellation Period does not apply to the Contract where it is entered into at the Seller's premises; or to orders for Bespoke Goods; or to Goods that deteriorate or expire rapidly.

In the event that such court decides that such Condition is not severable, the parties agree to substitute such Condition with a legal, valid, enforceable and reasonable Condition which achieves, to the greatest extent possible, the same commercial effect as the original Condition.
