3 Our Products

The cards sold by us through our Website are illustrated and handmade by us individually with care in the United Kingdom.

3.1 Products may vary slightly from their pictures

3.3 Personalised Products

If the product includes personalised content requested or selected by you, it is a personalised product (Personalised Product). If it is a standard product which does not include any content selected by you, it is a non-personalised product (Non-Personalised Product).

It is up to you to ensure the content you have contributed for inclusion in a Personalised Product is correct (for example the content is correctly spelt).

Please double-check your order on screen carefully to check that all the details are correct before placing your order. We also cannot accept responsibility if your Personalised Product does not meet your expectations.

By uploading or including any content or material (including but not limited to photographs, graphics, text and other material) (Customer IP) in a Personalised Product, you grant us a non-exclusive, royalty-free, irrevocable licence (including the right to grant sub-licences through multiple tiers) to use, reproduce, adapt, distribute and communicate to the public that content or material solely for the purpose of performing our obligations under these Terms and exercising any rights you may grant to us.

The rights and ownership to the Customer IP will remain yours, or the person who gave you permission to use the Customer IP.

If you use third party copyright in any Personalised Product, it is your responsibility to ensure that you seek permission from the copyright owner. We will not accept any liability whatsoever if any Customer IP infringes on third party copyright. You will be held responsible for any fees and third party damages we may have to pay to a third party because of such infringement and you will be liable to reimburse these payments to us in full.

3.4 Content Rules

We do not permit Personalised Products to include any content or material which:

(a) infringes anyone's IP (see below the definition in section ‎11). In particular, you must ensure that you either own the IP in the Customer IP that you wish to include in a Personalised Product or that you have permission from the IP owner to include that Customer IP in the Personalised Product;

4 PRICE AND PAYMENT

4.1 Where to find the price for the product

All prices are exclusive of delivery charges, unless otherwise stated. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see section ‎4.4 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.

4.2 Payment 

You can pay for your products using credit card, debit card, PayPal or any other payment method which we make available to you at the time of your order.

4.3 Promotional Codes

From time to time we may issue promotional codes which can be redeemed against certain purchases. Each promotion will have its own terms of use which will apply in addition to the terms set out here. Promotional codes will have expiry dates and no credit or cash alternative will be offered if you do not use a promotional code(s) before its expiry date but we reserve the right to dispatch products outside of this period.

Where a refund is given in relation to a product purchased using a promotional code, the refund will be limited to the promotional price paid and not the full value of the product. The promotional discount will apply to the original purchase only, and is not valid for any subsequent exchanges or purchases. 

Terms of use for promotional codes may be modified at our discretion, without prior notice.

In case of abuse of promotional codes, including but not limited to, publication on online discount codes sites, mass mailing etc., we reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to expire or revoke promotional codes, or to temporarily remove the ability to redeem promotional codes on the Snowdrop Design site.

Please note we reserve the right to cancel or suspend any of our promotional campaigns at any time.

Snowdrop Designs reserves the right to cancel, change, suspend or extend offers at any given time, without notice. Promotions cannot be backdated or applied retrospectively to orders already placed.

4.4 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. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's 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.

4.5 What to do if you think your order confirmation receipt or invoice is wrong

If you think your order confirmation receipt or invoice is wrong, please contact promptly to let us know.

5 Dispatch and Delivery 

5.1 General information

The dispatch date is the date that we send the item, not the date that it is delivered.

During the order process, we will generally notify you of the dispatch dates available and the expected timeframe for receiving your order. However, Snowdrop Designs does not guarantee delivery dates or times.

For orders that are accepted, unless we inform you otherwise in the order process, we will dispatch the product you have ordered within 5 days of the order.

It is your responsibility to ensure that the postal information you input for delivery is correct.

Errors in the address may cause unnecessary delay and/or result in unsuccessful delivery of your items. You can check that you have the correct UK postcode by using the Royal Mail's handy postcode finder available at www.royalmail.com/find-a-postcode. Please note we are not responsible for the accuracy of the Royal Mail's postcode finder.

5.2 Delivery costs

The price of most products on our Website do not include delivery costs, unless stated otherwise. We will notify you of the delivery cost at the checkout stage before you place your order.

There may be occasions from time to time (for example, a promotion) where delivery costs are included in the price of our product. On these occasions, this information will be clearly stated on our Website or App.

We reserve the right to change the delivery costs at any time.

5.3 Estimated delivery times

Products are delivered by Royal Mail (or another third party carrier from time to time). Estimated delivery times for all UK orders are set out here. These Terms are in relation to deliveries made in the UK only. Please note that only cards can be delivered to UK addresses, however we are working on delivering to countries outside of the UK.

If the product is a one-off purchase of digital content, such as an eCard, we will make the digital content available to the recipient either immediately, the same day or at 9am on your selected date of delivery, depending on the option you select.

5.4 We are not responsible for delays outside our control

If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control (such as acts of God, natural disasters, epidemics or pandemics, terrorist attacks, war or threat of war, riots, imposition of sanctions, embargo, or breaking off of diplomatic relations, nuclear, chemical or biological contamination or sonic boom, any laws imposing an export or import restriction, quota or prohibition, or failing to grant necessary licence or consent, collapse of buildings, fire, explosion or accident, industrial action, interruption or failure of utility service) 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. However, if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to cancel your order and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received. Your statutory rights as a consumer are not affected.

5.5 If the recipient is not at home when the product is delivered

We operate a "Leave Safe" policy. This means that the carrier will attempt delivery at the recipient's address first. If there is no response, they will attempt to leave the product with a neighbour or in a nominated safe place. If the carrier cannot deliver the product in any of these ways, and the product cannot be posted through the recipient's letterbox, the carrier will leave the recipient instructions informing them how to re-arrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.

5.6 Re-arranging delivery/collection

If no one is available at the recipient's address, it will be your responsibility to re-arrange delivery or make arrangements for collection with the carrier. Instructions on how to do so shall be left at the time of attempted delivery.

5.7 When you become responsible for the goods

A product which is goods shall be your responsibility from the time we deliver or attempt delivery of the product to the address you gave us.

5.8 When you own goods

You own a product which is goods once we have received payment in full.

5.9 What will happen if you do not give required information to us

We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products, for example, the delivery address. We will 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 Section ‎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.

5.10 Reasons we may suspend the supply of products to you

We may have to suspend the supply of a product to deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes; update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; or make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you.

5.11 Your rights if we suspend the supply of products

We will contact you as far in advance as practicably possible to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product. If we have to suspend the product for longer than 48 hours, we may contact you to cancel your order and refund any sums you have paid. You may contact us to end the contract for a product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 48 hours and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract.

5.12 Delivery outside the UK

We currently do not accept orders for deliveries outside of the UK. However, we are working on making this possible in the future.

6. Your right to make Changes

As a courtesy, we may allow you to make changes to your order on your Snowdrop Designs Account. If you cannot make changes on your Snowdrop Designs Account, then you will need to contact us by Email. Please have your order number so we can answer your query as quickly as possible.

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.

6.1 Changes to your order

It is important that you check your order carefully before pressing the confirm order button because you may not be able to change or cancel your order once it has been placed (other than in limited circumstances).

If you have made a mistake and wish to change your order, please contact us as soon as possible by email, with the email your account is registered and quoting the order confirmation number. However, we may not pick up your request until after your order has been printed or dispatched. At which point no changes can be made.

6.2 Changes to made to order and personalised products

The majority of our products are made to order and personalised for you. This means you will be unable to cancel your order once it has been placed. Please refer to clause 8.4.

7 Our right to make changes

7.1 Minor changes

We may have to make minor changes to a product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements or to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat. Minor changes will not affect your use of the product.

7.2 Significant changes

There may be circumstances where we have to make significant changes to our products. If we do need to make such changes, we will notify you of this. You may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any products paid for but not received.

8 Your legal rights to end the contract

8.1 Your rights

If you wish to exercise your right to end the contract, you (or the gift recipient, where applicable) must not open the products or break any safety seals and must take reasonable care of the products until they are returned to us. However, your rights when you end the contract will also 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, including:

(a) if what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed 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 section ‎9.1;

(b) if you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see section ‎‎8.2;

(c) if you have just changed your mind about the product, see section ‎‎8.3.  You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods;

(d) In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see section ‎‎8.5.

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 below, the contract will end immediately, and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided. The reasons are:

(a) We have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these Terms which you do not agree to (see section ‎7.2);

(b) 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;

(c) there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;

(d) we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 48 hours; or

(e) 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.

How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered:

(a) Have you bought digital content for download (for example, an eCard)? if so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order, or, if earlier, until the email containing the eCard has been opened. If we delivered the digital content to you immediately, and you agreed to this when ordering, you will not have a right to change your mind.

(b) Have you bought goods (for example, a Non-Personalised or Custom Product)? if so you have 14 days after the day you (or the recipient) receives the goods, unless your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or the recipient) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the goods;

8.4 When you don't have the right to change your mind

You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of

(a) Personalised and or Custom Products;

(b) digital products such as eCards after the recipient has opened the email containing the eCard;

(c) products which are sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them;

(d) perishable goods, such as food, drink and flowers, which deteriorate rapidly; and

(e) services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running.

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 8.4) you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation.

A contract for goods or digital content is completed when the product is delivered, downloaded or streamed and paid for.  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 costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.

8.6 Summary of your legal rights We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with these Terms.

9 Ending your contact with us 

9.1 Reporting a problem

If you have questions or are unhappy with your order, please contact us by Email (see section ‎1.2 for contact details). You will need to quote your order number, the email address you have registered and the details of the problem with the order.

We aim to acknowledge any complaint within 14 days and will do our best to resolve it within 28 days. We may ask you to take a photograph of the product to help us understand the issue and to correct any future problems. Should it be necessary, we will then advise you how to return your item. However, we reserve the right to refuse a refund or replacement.

If you receive a product from us in error, you must inform us immediately via email. We will then provide you with instructions on how to return or securely destroy the product.

9.2 Your legal obligation to return rejected products

If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must return them back to us. If you have ordered a gift, please return the product to the return address stated on the package. If you have ordered a card, please contact us for more information.

9.3 Procedure for returns and refunds 

We will refund you the price you paid for the products excluding delivery costs, by the method you used for payment within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you.

Personalised Products

Where a physical item is faulty, please contact us via email. We will either ask you to return the item to us within three days of receipt or to take a photo of the item before returning it back to us. You can email us for a returns address if you do not have one. Your right to return items to us in accordance with these Terms is in addition to any other statutory rights you may have.

If you are eligible for a refund, we will reimburse the price you have paid for the product(s) onto the credit or debit card that you paid with or to your PayPal account. Alternatively, we may offer to reprint (if applicable) and resend the item free of charge. Please note it is not our policy to offer both a refund and a resend.

Refunds cannot be given if the fault is a result of your own actions such as product misuse or if personalisation is mis-spelt or if you have uploaded an image of a low resolution or size. Please see section ‎3.3 on Personalised Products for more information.

Non-Personalised Products

Please refer to section ‎8.4 for Non-Personalised Products which cannot be returned.  

Where an item is faulty, please contact us via email. We will either ask you to return the item to us within three days of receipt or to take a photo of the item before returning it back to us. You can email to us for a returns address if you do not have one. Your right to return items to us in accordance with these Terms is in addition to any other statutory rights you may have.

If you are eligible for a refund, we will reimburse the price you have paid for the product(s) onto the credit or debit card that you paid with or to your PayPal account. Alternatively, we may offer to reprint (if applicable) and resend the item free of charge. Please note it is not our policy to offer both a refund and a resend.

Please note that if the value of the product has been reduced by any handling of it beyond what is necessary to check whether the product is as expected, we may deduct an amount to reflect that reduction in value from the sum we refund to you. Note that the value of a product may be reduced to nothing if its seal (or similar) is broken.

9.4 When we will pay the costs of return

We will pay the costs of return if:

(a) the products are faulty or misdescribed;

(b) if we have requested a return of the product due to a product recall.

9.5 Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind

We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.

The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.

10 Our rights to end the contract

10.1 We may end the contract if you break it

We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:

(a) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or the recipient or collect them from us/your local depot.

10.2 You must compensate us if you break the contract

If we end the contract in the situations set out in Section ‎10.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided, but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.

16 General

16.1 Your Snowdrop Designs Account

Please note that we do not perform verification checks when you create a Snowdrop Designs Account, and it is therefore important that you provide your real name and a valid email address when signing up. This is to ensure compliance with these Terms and so that we can perform identity verification if you ever contact us about your order. A valid email address is also required to receive any other communications mentioned in these Terms. We will not be responsible for being unable to verify your identity or not being able to assist with your queries if you have used a fake name or email address.  

16.2 Suspension

If you are found to be in breach of these Terms, we reserve the right to suspend your Snowdrop Designs Account, your order and all access to Snowdrop Designs Website.

In addition, we are entitled to suspend provision of all or part of our services at any time if we are obliged or advised to comply with an order, instruction or request of any limb of government, or any regulator, court or other competent authority.

16.3 Change of Terms

These Terms may change from time to time and when they do, we will post the new version of the Terms on the Website and flag it appropriately.

16.4 We may transfer this agreement to someone else

We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation.

16.5 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee)

You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. However, you may transfer our guarantee to the recipient who has acquired the product or, where the product is services, any item or property in respect of which we have provided the services. We may require the recipient to whom the guarantee is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the relevant product.

16.6 Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to)

This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its Terms, except in respect of the guarantee as explained in clause 16.5.

16.7 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, 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, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

16.8  Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later 

Just because we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms, it does not mean you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

16.9  Which laws apply

These Terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts
