Our Photo Gifts Returns and Refunds Policy (click here to view) contains details of how to contact us to address a possible claim regarding Products which are faulty or not as described and arrange for their return.

You should take appropriate steps to back-up Content submitted by you to the Service and to protect your device against any damage that could result from your access to or use of the Service. The Service, the uploading of Content to the Service, the transfer of any Content for use in the production of Products and the ordering of Products through the use of the Service may not be error free or uninterrupted. We do not give any commitment in relation to the security, reliability, timeliness and performance of the Service and any of those other functions. To the extent permitted by law we and our Contractors are not responsible for interruption of the Service, linkage to any third party sites, damage to your device, damage to other property or loss of Content or other data resulting from your access to or use of the Service.
(d) Our and our Contractors' total aggregate liability to you in connection with the provision or non-provision of the Service or any Products or otherwise in connection with the subject matter of these Terms and Conditions, whether arising in contract, tort, misrepresentation or otherwise, will in all circumstances be limited to:
- where the Photo Gifts Returns and Refunds Policy applies, us or our Contractors providing you with the remedy or remedies set out in that document;
- where such liability otherwise arises in relation to any specific order(s) of Products, the price paid by you in respect of that or those order(s); or
- where the Photo Gifts Returns and Refunds Policy does not apply and such liability arises other than in relation to any specific order(s) of Products, the sum of £50.
If you are a Consumer we will also be liable for any other losses or damage you suffer which are a foreseeable consequence of the provision or non-provision of the Service or any Products or otherwise in connection with the subject matter of these Terms and Conditions. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us or one of our Contractors during the sales process.
(e) Nothing in these Terms and Conditions excludes or limits our liability for any matter for which it would be illegal for us to exclude or attempt to exclude our liability to you. If you are a Consumer by this we mean that nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall limit or exclude in any way our liability for any breach of the terms implied by the Consumer Rights Act 2015, for death or personal injury caused by our or our Contractors’ negligence or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
- Your Liability to Us
(a) You agree to indemnify us and hold us harmless from and against the amount of any and all damages, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses (including but not limited to legal and professional costs) we incur arising from:
- your breach of any term of these Terms and Conditions unless you are a Consumer;

- any other third party claim arising from or in relation to your use of the Service.
(b) The provisions of this clause 10 will survive the termination of any contract formed on these Terms and Conditions.
- Orders for Products
(a) After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order and confirming your order number. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product that you have created online using the tools within the website. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched or is available for collection (the "Dispatch Confirmation"). The contract between us ("Contract") will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation. We recommend you carefully preview the Products to be ordered by you and the choices made by you for their production before ordering, and ensure you are satisfied before adding them to your Shopping Cart.
(b) We reserve the right at any time after the receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason, in which case we will e-mail you as soon as we can to let you know. If we decline your offer on security grounds we may contact you to seek an alternative payment method.
(c) The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
(d) Full payment for all orders of Products and all applicable delivery costs is taken at the time of ordering. We will charge your debit card or credit card at the time of ordering.
(e) If you are a Consumer you may have a general legal right to cancel a contract; however due to the personalised nature of the Products ordered through the Service, no order for Products placed by you through the Service may be cancelled once accepted by us. However, if you believe you have placed an order in error, or if you wish to adjust an order, please contact us in the manner detailed in clause 16 below and we will assess whether in the circumstances we are able to assist you.
(f) The quoted price of any Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. The delivery charges are as quoted separately on the website from time to time. Collection of Products from the House of Photography store is free of charge.
- Delivery and Collection
(a) Products that are produced in-store (Express products only) will be available for collection within the timescale specified on the website. For all other Products we will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that within 14 Business Days of the payment for your order for Products, those Products shall be provided by us to a third party carrier for delivery to you. Ordinarily, delivery of an order to you may be expected within the period specified for delivery on the website. However we cannot accept responsibility for delivery failures or delays by other third party carriers and time shall not be of the essence in relation to any delivery of Products under these Terms and Conditions. If you select collection in-store for Products produced off-site we will notify you by email when your Products are available for collection. If you do not collect your Products within 6 months of the date of your order we reserve the right to dispose of your Products and if we do so you will not be entitled to any compensation.
(b) We may deliver Products in instalments. Each instalment will be a separate Contract.
(c) Delivery is only made to UK addresses. We regret we are unable to deliver to BFPO addresses.
(d) While we endeavour to hold sufficient raw material stock to produce all orders, if we have insufficient stock to produce or deliver Products which have been ordered and paid for by you, we may, at our discretion, supply or deliver a substituted Product or refund you the price paid for such Products as soon as possible and in any case within 30 days.
(e) We may decline to deliver Products to your premises if we believe it would be unsafe, unlawful or unreasonably difficult to do so and we may suspend any delivery (and charge you all costs we incur as a result including storage) until your premises are satisfactory for delivery.
(f) We reserve the right to cancel any accepted order prior to delivery, at our discretion (whether or not your debit/credit card has already been charged), in case of any material errors in connection with your order or your failure to comply with these Terms and Conditions or any other terms relevant to your order. If your payment has already been made and your order is cancelled by us, we will immediately upon confirmation issue an appropriate refund.
(g) If you are not a Consumer, delivery takes place either:
(i) upon completion of loading at our premises; or
(ii) upon completion of off-loading at our premises (if we are arranging carriage).
(h) If you are a Consumer, delivery will be completed when:
(i) we deliver the Products to the address in the UK you gave us; or
(ii) if no one is available at your address in the UK to take delivery, when the delivery agent or shipper leaves a note that the Products have been stored at a local collection point (for example Post Office or Royal Mail depot), in which case you can collect or rearrange delivery.
(i) You must inspect Products on delivery. If Products are damaged (or not delivered) you must email us via email@example.com within thirty (30) days of delivery. We will then issue a confirmed claims number by email and you must return the damaged Products to us, following our instructions.
(j) In line with our company policies on sustainability and environmental responsibility we ask that you carefully dispose of all packaging supplied with our Products.
- Price and Payment
(a) The price of any Products will be as quoted on our website from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
(b) These prices include VAT (charged at the rate applying at the time of delivery).
(c) Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
(d) Our site may contain, from time to time, a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedure so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our website, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
(e) We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
(g) Payment for all Products must be made on placing an order by credit or debit card or via your Paypal account.
(j) We do not, at any time, store or transmit any sensitive card details.
(k) When you send us your personal information, the links between our site and our server are encrypted using industry standard methods - usually referred to as SSL (256 bit encryption).
