(c) sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these products are unsealed after you receive them; and
(d) any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery
but this will not affect your legal rights as a consumer in relation to products that are damaged prior to delivery or not as described.
17.5 How long do I have to change my mind? You have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless:
(i) Your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.

If you are exercising your right to change your mind and we have not offered to collect the products, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us.

26.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our warranty). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.

If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
