You are required to take good care of the items while they are in your possession and they must be returned to us in a sellable condition.

9.3 In the case of returns pursuant to condition 9.1.1 above, i.e. returns of non-defective goods, we may also reduce the amount of money refunded to you where you have used the goods beyond the handling that is necessary for you to make sure the goods are as you expected, for example the handling you would do in a shop.
