3. Ordering from Cwaak

3.1. Product description

We use our reasonable endeavours to make sure that every product on Cwaak.com is shown accurately and that prices are correct. However, on some occasions there may be slight variations in colour, typefaces and layout.  Cwaak.com disclaims all representations and warranties that the content or information on this Website is accurate, complete, up to date or does not infringe the rights of any third party.

3.2. Placing your order

When you place an order with Cwaak (by selecting an item and completing our online checkout process), we will send you an acknowledgement by email. This email will detail the products you have ordered, the date you purchased, total paid, payment method and recipient address. Please note that your completion of the online checkout process does not constitute our acceptance of your order.

Our acceptance of your order only takes place when we have dispatched your item(s). A ‘purchase contract’ between you and Cwaak.com is therefore made at the point of dispatch, rather than at the point of payment. If you have cancelled your order (before your item is marked as dispatch), or if we notify you that we cannot accept your order, then no purchase contract will have been made.  

Reasons why Cwaak may not be able to accept an order:

a. If, unfortunately, we do not have your chosen goods in stock

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

We reserve the right to cancel your order at any time and issue a full refund. This does not affect your statutory rights.

3.4. Ordering multiple cards

If you purchase multiple items within a single order they will be dispatched all together but could arrive in separate envelopes. 

3.5. Payment

At Cwaak.com, you can pay for your goods using a credit or debit card and PayPal. 

Your card details are not recorded or stored in our database. They are encrypted and are transferred securely to our Payment Service Provider (www.paypoint.com) for immediate authorisation. Once we have received authorisation from the Payment Service Provider we will confirm your order.

5. Delivery

At Cwaak we understand how important it is that your cards arrive on time for that special occasion. Please note the following when purchasing your card:

The dispatch date is the day we SEND the item you have ordered.

Your order is likely to arrive quicker if you use a postcode.

All destinations outside Europe Allow 7 working days

Special Delivery Timings

If you’re sending your order to a UK address, and you have the complete postcode, you can also choose Royal Mail Special Delivery. This service comes at an increased cost (as detailed by Royal Mail).

A special delivery ordered before 2pm and despatched Monday - Friday is guaranteed for delivery before 2pm the following day. Royal Mail do not guarantee special deliveries to arrive on a Saturday (although we find that items sent to residential addresses where their local post office work a half day on Saturdays, generally do tend to arrive on a Saturday)

If you would like a guarantee for arrival on a Saturday, by selecting Friday dispatch you can select ‘Saturday Special Delivery’ for an additional fee for any UK address.

If a Special Delivery item cannot be signed for, it is returned to the depot and can either be collected in person from the local Post Office, or redelivered at a later date. This is subject to Royal Mail’s terms and conditions for Special Delivery.

5.7. Circumstances Beyond Our Control

Neither we, nor any carrier service that we use shall be liable for any failure to perform, where such failure or delay results from any circumstances outside our reasonable control; these circumstances to include but not be limited to any adverse weather conditions - such as snow, flood, extreme winds, fire, explosion, accident, traffic congestion, obstruction of any private or public highway, riot, terrorism, act of God, or from any industrial dispute or strike.

6. Changing or cancelling an order

Before you request a change or cancellation, please ensure the order status of your purchase is still at the ‘ORDER RECEIVED’ stage. If you have registered an account with Cwaak.com this can be checked by visiting “Order History’ which can be found under the ‘My Account’ tab. If you carried out your purchase as a Guest, as long as you haven’t received the ‘Order Dispatched’ email you are still able to amended or cancel your purchase. 

If the status on you account displays ‘Order Dispatched’ and you have received the ‘Order Dispatched’ email then it has already been posted to you and, unfortunately, cannot be amended or cancelled.

It is best to call us if you need to cancel or change your order - dial 0207 384 9026 or +44 207 384 9026 if outside the UK. Please have your order number or the email address you registered/made your purchase with available so we can answer your query as quickly as possible.

Emails are answered during business hours (9am – 5pm) in the order they are received. It is therefore possible that your order could begin production before your email is processed and we will be unable to make any changes, with this in mind please call us.

7. Refunds

At Cwaak.com, we always try to send your products in perfect condition. However, occasionally, a problem can arise. In the unlikely event that a product is faulty, or it is damaged in delivery or we have sent you the wrong item, we ask you to contact us to let us know of the problem as soon as possible.
