7.    ORDERING FROM US

7.1.    When making an order through our Website, the webpages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each webpage of the order process.

7.2.    You are deemed to place an order with us by ordering any of the Products which we sell by following the steps on our webpages and entering your payment details. We will then send you an email acknowledging that we have received your order, which details the Products you have ordered (Order Confirmation). 

7.3.    The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation, even if your payment has been processed at an earlier stage, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order.

If we do not send you an Order Confirmation, our acceptance of an order will take place when we post the Products to you.

7.4.    If we are unable to accept your order, for example because a Product is out of stock or no longer available or we cannot meet your requested delivery date or there was an error in price on our Website, we will inform you of this by email and we will not continue to process your order. If you have already paid for your order, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as is reasonably possible. For the avoidance of doubt, if there are two or more Products in your order and one or more of those Products is delivered, we will not refund the delivery charge. We will only refund the delivery charge if we are unable to accept your order as a whole and no Products are delivered to you at all. If you have ordered a Product and you have paid a specialised delivery charge and we cannot deliver that Product, we will refund the specialised delivery charge irrespective of whether or not that Product is part of a larger order. Please note if a specialised delivery charge applies to a Product this will be made clear to you on the shopping basket page of our Website.

(e)    if you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in these Terms;
(g)    if your personalised or customised order for Products (Personalised Products) contains content which is threatening, defamatory, obscene, indecent, seditious, offensive, pornographic, abusive, liable to incite hatred, discriminatory, menacing, scandalous, inflammatory, blasphemous, in breach of confidence or in breach of privacy; and/or
(h)    if we believe your order is for commercial or other non-domestic concerns. 

7.6.    We reserve the right to brand all of our Personalised Products.

8.    YOUR CONSUMER RIGHT OF RETURN AND REFUND

8.1.    Your rights when you end the Contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the Contract:

8.2.    As a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract during the period set out below in clause 8.4. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Further advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

8.3.        Your cancellation right does not apply in the case of: 

(a)    any Products that are personalised;
(b)    any perishable Products (such as inflated balloons, flowers and fresh produce); and
(c)    any audio recordings or video recordings or computer software which has been opened.

8.4.        Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date the Contract between us is formed (see clause 7.3). You will have a limited period of time to cancel your Contract depending on what you have ordered and how it is delivered. Please see the table below for further information:

Your Contract

End of the cancellation period

Your Contract is for a single non-personalised or non-perishable Product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days).

The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product.

Example: if we provide you with an Order Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.

Your Contract is for either of the following:

1    one non-personalised or non-perishable Product which is delivered in instalments on separate days; or

2    mmultiple non-personalised or non-perishable Products, which are delivered, on separate days.

The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the Product or the last of the separate Products ordered.

Example:  if we provide you with an Order Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the first instalment of your Product or the first of your separate Products on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate Product on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate Products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.

Your Contract is for the regular delivery of a non-personalised or non-perishable Product over a set period.

The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the first delivery of the Products.

Example: if we provide you with an Order Confirmation on 1 January in respect of Products to be delivered at regular intervals over a year and you receive the first delivery of your Product on 10 January, you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January. 24 January is the last day of the cancellation period in respect of all Products to arrive during the year.

8.5.        To cancel a Contract, you must let us know that you have decided to cancel the Contract and contact us using one of the following methods: 

(a)    via the Live Chat function available on our Website between the hours of 9.00am – 5pm on Monday to Friday;
(b)    via our Customer Services team by telephone on 01924 836050 between the hours of 9.00am - 5pm on Monday to Friday and 9.00am to 1pm on Saturday; or
(c)    via the online enquiry form at www.cardfactory.co.uk/contactus  

If you submit a cancellation outside of these hours, we will process your cancellation on the next working day (excluding Saturday, Sunday and public holidays). 

8.6.        If you cancel your Contract within the cancellation periods set out in clause 8.4 above, we will:

(a)    refund you the price you paid for the Products (excluding any applicable delivery charges). We are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods caused by your use of the Products. Please be aware that if you have ordered Products in accordance with a promotion or discount offer on our Website and your cancellation of part of that order means that you no longer qualify for that promotion, we may reduce your refund to reflect this;

(b)    refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For the avoidance of doubt, if there is more than one Product in your order and you only cancel part of that order we will not refund the delivery charge. We will only refund the delivery charge if you cancel your order as a whole and no Products are delivered to you at all or if you return all Products to us in accordance with clauses 8.12 to 8.17. If you have ordered a Product and you have paid a specialised delivery charge and successfully cancel your order for that Product, we will refund the specialised delivery charge irrespective of whether or not that Product is part of a larger order. Please note if a specialised delivery charge applies to a Product this will be made clear to you on the shopping basket page of our Website; and

(c)    make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the time periods indicated below:

(i)    if you have received the Product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, 14 days after the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us. For information about how to return a Product to us see clauses 8.12 to 8.17 below; or

(ii)    if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.

8.7.        If you have returned the Product to us in accordance with this clause because it is faulty or does not match its description, we will refund the price of the Product in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you have incurred in returning the Product to us. Click on this link for a freepost returns label, if you are returning a Product under this clause. Please be aware you will be required to produce a photo of the damage and/or problem with a Product before a freepost returns label is issued.

8.8.        We will refund you by the same method of payment that you used to place your order.

Our right to cancel the Contract

8.9.        We reserve the right to cancel any order at any time and issue a full refund.

Personalised and Perishable Products

8.10.    In accordance with clause 8.3, if you have placed an order for a personalised Product and or a perishable Product you will not be able to cancel or change your order. 

8.11.    Please check the spelling and accuracy of any personalised Product before you place an order as you will not be entitled to a refund or exchange of any personalised Products, which contain a misspelling that you are responsible for. 

Returns and Exchanges

8.12.        If a Product has already been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract (which must be done in accordance with clauses 8.1 to 8.8 above), then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract.

8.13.        Unless the Product is faulty or not as described (please see clauses 8.6 and 8.7), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us.

8.14.        Subject to you contacting us in accordance with clauses 8.4 and 8.5 above, we will contact you by email to advise whether you have satisfied our cancellation terms and are eligible for a refund and, if necessary, provide further information detailing how to proceed with your return.

8.15.        You can return Products to the following address:

Card Factory Customer Service Team
Century House
Brunel Road
Wakefield 41 Industrial Estate
Wakefield
WF2 0XG
United Kingdom

8.16.    We will pay the costs of return if the Products are faulty or misdescribed, or where you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the Product or these terms, or where there is an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong. In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.

8.17.        Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 8 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

9.    DELIVERY

9.1.    The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our Website.

9.2.    We will deliver orders within a maximum of 30 days after the date of the Order Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order). Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control – please see clause 17 for further details of our responsibilities in such an event.

9.3.        We will deliver the Products ordered by you to the address which you give for delivery when you make your order. You may specify a delivery address which is different from your billing address, if, for example, you would like us to deliver the Products directly to a friend, a relative, or to your place of work.

9.4.        If any of the details you have given us in your delivery address are incorrect, we accept no liability for any items which have not been received. 

9.5.        If no one is available at the delivery address given to accept the delivery, one of our carriers will leave you a card that the Products have been returned to our premises or the premises of any carrier which we use, in which case, please follow the instructions on the card to rearrange delivery. Please note that if you do not rearrange delivery, the Products will be returned to our premises.

9.6.        Delivery of an order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the delivery address given in the order process or to any other location nominated by you. The risk and responsibility in the Products will sit with you from that time.

9.7.        You own the Products once we have received payment in full (including all applicable delivery charges).

9.8.    If Products are not delivered within 30 days of the order being received as set out in clause 9.2 above (unless such delivery is delayed by an Event Outside Our Control), then you may cancel your order straight away if any of the following apply: 

(a)    we have refused to deliver the Products;
(b)    delivery within the delivery period was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
(c)    you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery period was essential.

9.9.        If you wish to cancel your order for late delivery under clause 9.8 above, you may cancel the order for some or all of the Products, unless splitting the Products would significantly reduce their value. If the Products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them (the cost of which we will pay). After you cancel your order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.

9.10.        Our normal working hours are Monday to Friday 9.00am - 5pm. All delivery and dispatch timescales quoted on the Website do not include weekends or public holidays. However, please be aware that these working hours do not apply to production. We may still produce items outside of these hours.

9.11.        Some postal addresses in Northern Ireland, some offshore islands and some remote areas of Great Britain may not be covered by our normal delivery services and so we may have to contact you to advise you of extra postal charges.

9.12.        Provided that we take the steps outlined in this clause 9, we will not be liable for out of pocket expenses or other costs incurred due to failed or delayed deliveries. If there is a substantial risk of delay, you may contact us to end the Contract and receive a refund for any Products you have paid for but not received.

9.13.    If the Products you have ordered do not arrive within 30 days of placing the order we accept no liability, so far as permitted by law, unless you have contacted us by telephone on 01924 836050.

10.    PRICE AND PAYMENT  

10.1.    The price of the Product will be the price indicated on the order webpages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price advised to you is correct. However, please see clause 10.4 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.

10.2.    All prices include VAT (where applicable) at the current rates. We reserve the right to express the price exclusive of VAT, but we shall show VAT separately and include it in the total price. 

10.3.        Where we charge separately for packing, carriage and insurance and other relevant charges, the appropriate rates are set out in our specified pricing structure shown elsewhere on this Website.

10.4.    Our Website contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our Website may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

10.5.    If a discount was applied to your original order, the amount refunded will be adjusted to allow for the revised order value and appropriate discount level. Please note you can only use one discount code per order.
 
10.6.    We accept payment by Visa, Mastercard, Paypal, Google Pay and Apple Pay.
