For example, if You want to return a Product that is valid from 1 December, We need to have received it, along with your proof of purchase and refund information (as explained further in section 6.6 below) by no later than 30 November in order for You to qualify for a full refund.

6.2.2. It is Your responsibility to ensure that You return the Product to Us in plenty of time before the start date of the Product.
