All Orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Services have been commenced as applicable (“Acceptance Confirmation”). Our obligation to provide you with your Order will only be formed when we send you the Acceptance Confirmation.
Your Order will relate only to those Services where commencement has been confirmed in the Acceptance Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Services which may have been part of your Order until the commencement of such Services has been confirmed in a separate Acceptance Confirmation.
7. OUR PRODUCTS
Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the Products on our Site 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. Products may vary slightly from those images.
8. PROVIDING THE SERVICES
What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain contextual information from you so that we can supply the Services. 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 or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result (e.g. if we are required re-perform the Services because you have provided inaccurate information).
You must provide us with accurate information when placing an Order. The information provided on the Product in your Order will be directly replicated on the Product provided to your requested Recipient(s). We will not be responsible for a failure or delay in supplying the Services or any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the correct information we need. We will not be liable for any mistake or inaccuracies (e.g. inserting an incorrect date for your event, incorrect Recipient e-mail address, spelling mistakes or punctuation errors).
We may not be responsible if we cannot supply the Services to your chosen Recipient. We will not be responsible for supplying the Services late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by the Recipient’s inability to receive and/or be notified about the receiving of the Services (e.g. the Recipient’s email address is not functioning correctly or the Services are sent to the Recipient’s junk mail).
No refunds for Order mistakes or inaccuracies. You must check your Summary Page carefully. Mistakes and inaccuracies cannot be corrected once the Services have been provided. We do not provide refunds in respect of Products that contain mistakes or inaccuracies and which has been caused by you providing us with incomplete or incorrect information. For example:
- If you have provided us with an incorrect e-mail address for a Recipient(s) of your Products, you shall be required to pay for an additional Order for the Product to reach that intended Recipient(s).
- If you have provided us with an incorrect location for an event which is the subject of an e-invitation Product, you shall be required to pay for an additional Order for all intended Recipients to receive a Product with the correct event location.
Your rights if we suspend the supply of Services. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of Services, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the Services we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for Services while they are suspended. You may contact us to end the Contract for Services if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the Services in respect of the period after you end the Services Contract.
9. PRICE AND PAYMENT
Where to find the price for the Services. The price of the Services (which includes VAT and all applicable taxes) will be the price indicated on the Summary Page. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Services advised to you is correct.
What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Services’ correct price at your Order date is less than our stated price at your Order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Services’ correct price at your Order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.
When you must pay and how you must pay. To place an Order, you must make payment via our online payment facility. Such payment will result in you having placed an Order.
10. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE ORDER
Ending your Order with us. Your rights when you end the Order will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with the Services, how we are performing and when you decide to end the Order.

In most circumstances we fully perform the Services before the expiry of the Cancellation Period (for example, your personalised Product will be sent to your chosen Recipients immediately following our receipt of payment for your Order) and accordingly you acknowledge and agree that, as set out in regulation 36(2) of the Regulations, you:
- shall not have the right to cancel the Order for Services; and
- waive your rights to cancel under regulation 29 of the Regulations.
If we do not fully perform the Services during the Cancellation Period, you may cancel the services during the Cancellation Period and you may be entitled to a refund, save that we shall make a deduction from the amount refunded as proportionate payment for the Services that have been provided up to and including the date of your cancellation, which we are entitled to charge under the Regulations.

Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. As previously mentioned, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the Services for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the Order.

If a court finds part of this Contract illegal or unenforceable, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
Even if we delay in enforcing this Contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Services, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
Which laws apply to this Contract and where you may bring legal proceedings.
