If you think that somebody else might know your user identification code and/or password then you must log in to your account and change these as soon as possible.

We have made every effort to describe and display as accurately as possible the Products that appear on the Website. However, your Products may vary slightly from those images, especially those Products which are handcrafted.
Prices, offers and Products are subject to availability and may change at any time prior to receipt of your Dispatch Confirmation.
THE PLACING OF A PRODUCT ON OUR WEBSITE IS AN INVITATION TO ACCEPT OFFERS FOR PRODUCTS, IT IS NOT AN OFFER TO SELL AT THE LISTED PRICE NOR IS IT BINDING ON US. YOUR OFFER IS ONLY ACCEPTED WHEN YOU RECEIVE DISPATCH CONFIRMATION FROM US
- Our gift vouchers are only valid at Harrison & Griffiths website and not at events.
- A gift voucher cannot be exchanged for cash or refunded.
- Gift vouchers cannot be purchased in conjunction with free delivery offers.
- If the amount of purchase is less than the value of the gift voucher, change will not be given.
- Please protect your gift voucher and treat it as cash as we are unable to accept any liability for lost and stolen gift vouchers and cannot replace the same.

We will send you an order confirmation email (“Order Confirmation”) to confirm that we are processing your order.
Acceptance of an order placed by you online and the completion of the Contract between you and us will take place when you receive the Dispatch Confirmation email from us.
If for any reason we cannot provide you with an item on your order, you will be contacted by email and a refund will be issued for the item(s) that are missing.
If a Product you have ordered is listed at an incorrect price due to an error on our part, we will notify you of the error and either refund you for any overcharged amount so that you pay only the correct price of the Product (and the delivery charge if the order only contained that item) or if we have undercharged you we will seek the outstanding balance. We will not dispatch the Product to you until the correction has been made.
The price of the Product(s) are as set out on the Website. Your order summary will confirm the price payable by you for the selected Product(s).
We accept MasterCard, Visa Credit, Visa Debit and Visa Electron.
Your card will be charged when you place your order.
ACCEPTANCE BY US OF ANY PAYMENT MADE BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH ANY PRODUCTS DOES NOT CONSTITUTE OUR ACCEPTANCE OF YOUR ORDER AND A LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT IS NOT FORMED UNTIL YOU RECEIVE OUR DISPATCH CONFIRMATION EMAIL (AS REFERRED TO IN STEP 13 OF PARAGRAPH 5 ABOVE) AND WE WILL NOT BE OBLIGED TO SUPPLY PRODUCTS TO YOU UNTIL THEN.
Payment card validation
All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to, or does not for any reason, authorise payment then you will be notified of this immediately at the checkout stage and there is nothing we can do to override this.
In processing your order, we may use your information for the purposes of the prevention and detection of fraud and we may disclose your address and postcode details as part of our fraud prevention checks. At all times where we disclose your information it will remain secure.
Circumstances excluding your legal right to cancel without reason
Your legal right to cancel your Contract with us within 14 days of receiving the Product(s) does not apply in the case of any Product ordered by you that is:
- made to your specifications or personalised (for example wedding or celebration cakes); or
- sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once it has been unsealed after you receive it; or
- food items which have an expiry date of up to 14 days after the date of despatch.
If you have made a prepayment in relation to wedding or celebration cakes, whether we refund such prepayment is entirely at our discretion and we will be under no obligation to do so.
Faulty or mis-described Products
In addition to your legal right to cancel without reason, we are under a legal obligation to ensure that we supply Products which are in conformity with the terms of the Contract between us.
If we have made a mistake, or you receive Products that are faulty, damaged or unfit for purpose, please return them to us by post following the returns procedure set out here.
Upon receipt, the Products will be examined by Harrison & Griffiths to determine any fault. If the Product is found to be incorrect, defective or damaged, we will refund the price of the Product, the delivery charges you have paid to receive that Product (unless the faulty or mis-described Product was sent to you with other items which you are not returning) and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item(s) to us.
Refunds will be made in accordance depending on the reason why you are returning the Product(s).
All refunds will be made using the original payment method. Please note that it can take between 5 and 7 working days for the funds to show back in your account and that this time is dictated by your bank and is completely out of our control.
Our liability to you
If we fail to comply with these Terms & Conditions, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these Terms & Conditions or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it was an obvious consequence of our breach or if it was contemplated by you and us at the time we entered into the Contract.
We only supply the Products for domestic and private use. You agree not to use the Product for any commercial, business or re-sale purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
We do not in any way exclude or limit our liability for:
- death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
- fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;
- any breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (title and quiet possession);
- any breach of the terms implied under implied by section 13 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (description, satisfactory quality, fitness for purpose and samples);
- defective Products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987; and
- as of 1 October 2015, any breach of the terms for which liability cannot be limited or excluded as provided for under Section 31 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
As a consumer, you will always have legal rights (including statutory remedies) in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. Similarly, as a consumer, you have legal rights (including statutory remedies) in relation to services not carried out with reasonable skill and care, or if the materials we use are faulty or not as described.
Advice about your legal rights (including statutory remedies) are available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
Events Outside Our Control
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by an Event Outside Our Control.
An “Event Outside Our Control” means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.
If an Event Outside Our Control takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under a Contract:
- we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you; and
- our obligations under a Contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the Event Outside Our Control.
Where the Event Outside Our Control affects our delivery of Products to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you after the Event Outside Our Control is over.
Other important terms.
We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms & Conditions.
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms & Conditions to another person if we agree in writing.
The Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
Each of the paragraphs of these Terms & Conditions operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms & Conditions or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
These Terms & Conditions are governed by the laws of England and Wales. This means a Contract for the purchase of Products through the Website and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English and Welsh law. You and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction. However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are a resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
