According to the EU Distance Selling Directive, the consumer is protected by several safeguards and entitlements. Inksdirect.ie is committed to complying with this directive. As a consumer you are entitled to a fourteen-day 'cooling-off period*', whereby you are entitled to return your purchase to us for any reason** within fourteen days of receipt of same, and be refunded the price that you paid, minus the shipping charge. This safeguard applies only where the products in question are unopened, unused, undamaged, and returned to us in full saleable condition. Charges for return-shipment must be borne by the purchaser.
* The cooling-off period only applies to B2C clients. B2B clients have no such entitlement according to the Distance Selling Directive.
**'Specials', once accepted by you as such, can not be returned to us.
Items that fall outside the 14 day cooling-off period will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
The guarantees on our various product lines are as follows:
In the event that you've purchased a faulty original or OEM product from Inksdirect.ie please contact the manufacturer directly for further instruction.

The claim must be made within the guarantee period.
This may be done by email or telephone, the product must be returned to us within 5 working days of the initial communication, the article must be packaged properly and a copy of the delivery note or invoice must accompany the returned item(s).
