6. Liability and warranties
6.1 We will meet our responsibilities under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993, subject to clause 6.2 if you are purchasing the Product for the purposes of a business. Without limiting our responsibilities to consumers, our warranties, guarantees, and liability to you in connection with your use of the Vodafone Online shop and your purchase or use of the Products are limited and excluded as described in our website terms and conditions, On Account Terms and Conditions or Prepay Terms and Conditions as appropriate.
6.2 If you are purchasing the Product for the purposes of a business, you agree that the Consumer Guarantees Act does not apply, and, to the maximum extent permitted by law, our liability to you, or anyone claiming through you, will be limited at all times to the purchase price of the Product to which your claim relates.
7.1 You may return a Product to us:
a. in accordance with our Change of Mind guarantee as set out in clause 5 above; or
b. where the Product fails to work upon delivery to you as a result of a manufacturing defect or if the Consumer Guarantees Act is otherwise relevant (an "Out Of Box Failure") provided that you have followed all of the manufacturer's instructions and recommendations for the configuration and initial use of that Product.
7.2 If you wish to return a Product to us under clause 7.1, then (without limiting our responsibilities under the Consumer Guarantees Act) you must call us on 0800 837 867 within 7 business days of receiving the Product to arrange for it to be returned.
7.3 If we accept your returns claim for an Out of Box Failure, we will pay the courier costs of returning the Product to us.

Apple iPhones subject to an Out of Box Failure claim will be sent by us for warranty servicing by the manufacturer, and will be returned or replaced in terms of the warranty at the manufacturer's discretion. For the avoidance of doubt, our Change of Mind guarantee entitles you solely to a reimbursement of the purchase price of the Product (excluding any delivery charges).
