We may revise these terms and conditions at any time by updating this posting. You should check this website from time to time to review the then current terms and conditions, because they are binding on you. Certain provisions of these terms and conditions may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages of this website. If you do not wish to accept any new terms and conditions after we have given notice, it is advised that you should not continue to use this website.
Ordering From Us
You are deemed to place an order with us by ordering via our online checkout process. We will send you an order acknowledgement by email, detailing the products you have ordered.
Our acceptance of an order takes place when we dispatch the order to the customer. When we dispatch the order the purchase contract will be made even if your payment has been processed immediately, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order for any reason.
We may refuse to accept an order:
(a) Where goods are not available
(b) Where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment
(c) If there has been a pricing or product description error
(d) If you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions
(e) If your order for personalised products contains content, which is deemed inappropriate for an order, i.e. threatening or abusive.
Amending and cancelling an order for any product before production
Definition of amendment: request to change personalisation, delivery contact name and address, or upgrade delivery method
Definition of cancellation: request to cancel whole or part or your order.
If you have placed an order for a personalised product, you can make the request to amend your order by contacting us as soon as possible via email to email@example.com indicating your order number and which items you would like to amend. Our website is designed to give customers every opportunity to check all input/personalisation details and dates.
If your product whether personalised or not personalised has gone into production or has been dispatched between when you place the order and when we pick up your request to amend or cancel your order, then we will be unable to amend or cancel the order. We do not work weekends or bank holidays, therefore if you have made a request to amend or cancel your order during this period we will pick up your request when we start the next working day, and will always try to notify you that day if your request was successful. However, we do experience high volumes of customer contact which can delay our response and action to your request.
We cannot guarantee that we will be able to amend order details or cancel your order, as our products are often sent immediately for production but we will make every effort to make your request successful.
We will deliver the products ordered by you to the address, which you give for delivery when you make your order. If any of the details you have given us in your delivery address are incorrect, we are not liable for any items, which have not been received. If you require us to send out your order to a different address after it has been returned then there will be a charge for posting it out again. 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 the recipient.
We deliver worldwide. If you are outside the UK, please select your delivery country when specified.
The majority of our UK orders are dispatched signed for Royal Mail. All international orders are sent using a tracked service. If you have not received your items you must check with your local sorting office even if you have not received notification that they are holding items for you. We reserve the right to wait up to 15 working days for UK orders and 30 working days for international orders from the date of dispatch before replacing the undelivered item. In the event that we reproduce an item for you and subsequently the original is returned to us as undelivered we reserve the right to charge an administration fee of up to 100% of the sales price of the reproduced product. In the unlikely event that you do not receive your order within 15 days for UK orders or 30 days for international orders from the notification of dispatch then Ruth Kay Gifts shall have no liability to you unless you inform us of the problem by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org within 35 days of dispatch notification.
If you order products from our site for delivery to one of the international delivery destinations, your order may be subject to delays and import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount. You will be responsible for any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order. You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.
Your rights to return the goods to us will not apply in the following circumstances:
If you return an item because of an error on our part, or because it is defective, we will happily replace the item and refund any costs incurred in returning it to us. The item(s) must be returned in the condition in which you received it within 14 days of delivery. We cannot be responsible for returns that are lost in transit. We recommend sending the packages by recorded/special delivery. By the very individual nature of personalised products, they cannot be re-sold, and therefore we cannot accept returns if you have a change of mind. You should contact us by email at email@example.com as soon as possible but no later than 14 days from receipt of the product. The item must be returned within 30 days of delivery.
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.
This returns policy does not affect your statutory rights.
