    Many items in the hampers/ giftboxes are perishable and/ or may have a rapid expiry date therefore your normal EU right to a seven day "cooling off" period to withdraw purchases does not apply to these items. The cooling off period does not apply to any sealed item where the seal has been broken.

    When you place an order on the www.urru.ie website for an item(s), you agree to purchase those items from us. We send you an order confirmation e-mail.
