3. – OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
3.1 – How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.2 – If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet any intended delivery deadline you have specified.
3.3 – Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
3.4 – We only sell to the UK. Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not deliver to addresses outside the UK.
4. – OUR PRODUCTS
4.1 – Products may vary slightly from their pictures. Our products are personalised to your specifications using either your design ideas or ours. The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images. Our range of design ideas may vary from time to time and we accept no liability should at any time one of these images be no longer available for your use.
4.2 – Making sure any material you supply to us for the purposes of the personalisation of the product is accurate and correct. You are responsible for ensuring that any material, be it images or text, supplied to us is accurate and correct. You should closely follow the guide provided to you on the website before submitting anything to us.
5. – YOUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered and which shall include a change to your personalised design please contact us within 8 hours of placing your order. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change requested you will not have the right to cancel the order because the product will be deemed bespoke as it will have been designed to your specifications (see clause 8.3).
6. – OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
Minor changes to the products. We may change the product:
6.1 – to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
6.2 – to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements. These changes will not affect your use of the product.
7. – PROVIDING THE PRODUCTS
7.1 – Delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be included within the purchase price paid for the product.
7.2 – When we will provide the products. During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you.
We will deliver the products to you as soon as reasonably possible and we will contact you with an estimated delivery date when the product is ready for dispatch.
7.3 – We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
7.4 – If you are not at home when the product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery you will receive a note from the delivery company informing you of alternative delivery arrangements.
7.5 – If you do not make alternative delivery arrangements. If you do not make alternative delivery arrangements following the instructions set out by the delivery company we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery we may end the contract and clause 10.2 will apply.
7.6 – When you become responsible for the goods. A product will be your responsibility from the time it is delivered to the address you gave us.
7.7 – When you own goods. You own a product once we have received payment in full.
7.8 – What will happen if you do not give required information to us. If you have not provided us with all the information required to personalise the product as detailed on the website we may contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 10.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
7.9 – Reasons we may suspend the supply of products to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:
(a) – deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes; or
(b) – update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.
7.10 – Your rights if we suspend the supply of products. We will contact you in advance to tell you if we will be suspending supply of the product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the product you may contact us to end the contract and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product.
8. – YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT; YOUR RIGHTS TO A REFUND OR REPLACEMENT
8.1 – You can end your contract with us. If the product you have received is faulty or mis-described you may have a legal right to end the contract or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back, (see clause 11);
However, if you have just changed your mind about the product you will not have the right to end the contract if the product is personalised because the consumer cancellation rights will not apply to such products purchased from our website (see clause 8.3 for further details).
8.2 – Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do.
If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (d) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
(a) – we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
(b) – there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control (see clause 7.3);
(c) – we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons (see clause 7.10)
(d) – you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
8.3 – Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. However, these rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, exclude all products that are made to the consumer’s specifications or are personalised and the right to cancel shall therefore not apply to any personalised products purchased from our website.
8.4 – How long do I have to change my mind?
For standard, non-personalised products you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods.
8.5 – Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract including costs connected with the cost of the product and its personalisation if personalisation has taken place.

12.3 – What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced.
