The following terms and conditions apply to all orders for the purchase of products from the Stripey Stork online shop. Please note, some of the conditions in this policy do not apply to our seasonal Santa Shop, as physical products are not actually being purchased, instead the donor is pledging money for us to purchase a Christmas gift for a child in need.
Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms or require any changes, please contact us to discuss.
If you are placing in order from outside the UK please note that these terms are subject to the laws of England and Wales and are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.

If we have to contact you, we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order. “Writing” includes emails and when we use the words “writing” or “written” in these terms, this includes emails.
If you place an order online to purchase a product from Stripey Stork we will send you an email confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order.
Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a product which is accepted by us when we deliver the product to you. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
You warrant that you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts and that you are at least 18 years old.
We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of products appearing on the website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system, however, the images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only.
In the event that there is an error in the pricing or description of products on our website, we reserve the right to refuse orders where product information has been mispublished, including prices and promotions.
The supply of products from this website is subject to availability and it is not always possible for us to inform you at the time you place your order whether the products you want are still available for purchase. In the case of this happening a carefully selected alternative may be sent, or a refund may be given.
The price of the products will be the price indicated on the website when you placed your order. All prices are in pounds sterling. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see below for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
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.
If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any products provided to you.
Options for payment are either via PayPal or Stripe (for debit and credit cards).
If you choose Stripe to complete your purchase, they will store your debit/credit card data, but only as long as is necessary to complete the transaction. After your transaction is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted (unless you selected the option to store payment information to your account for future purchases).

We aim to dispatch the products within three working days of your order being accepted by us, however, during busy periods/school holidays, it may take longer to process your order.
If you require your items to be delivered by a certain date, then please email [email protected] and we will endeavour to arrange this, but cannot guarantee receipt of the products by a particular date as we use third party delivery services and is therefore outside of our control (please note that an extra cost may apply in these circumstances).

If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them (or any words within them) are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs (or words) 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 products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
