knit/lab/terms & conditions of use
These Terms and Conditions may be downloaded here as a printable pdf for future reference. Payments
Payments are processed through PayPal. If you do not have a PayPal account, you do not need to sign up for one and you can still pay with a credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover) via PayPal's secure interface. Downloads & Patterns
All knit/lab patterns are available for direct download from the knit/lab Ravelry Store after purchase. (Note: You do not need to be a Ravelry member to make a purchase.) Immediately after you have successfully completed your PayPal payment, an email will be sent to your PayPal email address from downloads@ravelry.com containing a download link for the pattern. Clicking on the download link will take you to the Ravelry download page, from where you can download the pattern. If you are a Ravelry member, the pattern will also be added to your Ravelry library. If you are not a Ravelry member, or if your PayPal email address is not recognised by Ravelry as belonging to a member, you may be asked to input your email address so that Ravelry can locate the purchase. You should also be automatically redirected from the PayPal Payment Confirmation page to the Ravelry download page. But do not worry if you are not redirected (this occasionally happens), since the download link will already have been emailed to your PayPal email address and, if you are a Ravelry member, the pattern will already have been added to your Ravelry library. Should you lose the link to the download page or should you have any difficulty downloading the file, please immediately email knit/lab quoting your PayPal Transaction ID and email address and the pattern will be emailed to you. The patterns are provided in pdf format and can be read and printed with a suitable pdf reader such as Adobe Reader, which can be downloaded for free here or by clicking on the Get Adobe Reader button at the bottom of this page. Each pattern has a cover page with full color pictures, followed by the pattern itself (including all instructions) on the subsequent page(s). All pages will print at good quality on any desktop printer. Do you use different email addresses for Ravelry and PayPal?
The email containing a download link for the pattern you have purchased will always be sent to your PayPal email address from downloads@ravelry.com. Please keep this in mind if you use different email addresses for PayPal and Ravelry. Legal & Copyright

Cancellations & Refunds: Explicit Consent
The following conditions (apologies for their legalistic nature) are included to ensure that knit/lab is compliant with the EU Consumer Rights Directive: Right to Cancel
By clicking on the PayPal Pay Now button to complete your knit/lab pattern purchase, you explicitly acknowledge and agree (i) that you will lose your right to cancel the pattern purchase contract after performance of the supply of digital content not supplied on a tangible medium (i.e. the delivery of the pattern pdf which you have purchased) has begun, and (ii) that such performance begins when you click on the pattern download link either on the Ravelry download page or (if you are a Ravelry member) in your Ravelry library. If you wish to cancel your pattern purchase you must not click on the pattern download link, but should instead inform knit/lab of your decision to cancel the pattern purchase contract by means of an unequivocal statement within 14 days from the date of the pattern purchase. You may (but are not obliged to) use the model cancellation form included for convenience at the end of the pdf version of these Terms and Conditions which can be downloaded here. Or you can submit an alternative unequivocal statement containing similar information and confirming your decision to cancel by email to knitlab@mac.com. If you are a Ravelry member, you must also delete the pattern from your Ravelry library and confirm that you have done so. For the avoidance of doubt, please note that knit/lab pattern purchases cannot be cancelled after you have clicked on the pattern download link or after they have been sent to you as email attachments.
