Hardware Group Ltd will not accept goods that have clearly been used more than the amount needed to evaluate their functionality.
If the goods are found to be in working condition, and the lack of functionality is a result of lack of knowledge on the customers part, no refund will be made, but the goods will be returned to the user at their expense.
