I know, I know - this page isn't the most fascinating reading. But unfortunately, we need to lay down a few ground rules when you purchase from Foote and Flame. This protects both you and us, by having common ground before you order from us! We'd love to help you where we can - and we certainly will - but we do have to clarify a few points!
If you have any questions about these terms and conditions, please let us know and we're happy to answer your questions.
For most of our products, we will send artwork for your review and approval. We require approval before we make your order. We will follow up with you via email and SMS to get your approval, and you accept that we will use email and SMS for this purpose.
If we don't receive approval within 14 days of your order, we will cancel and refund your order in full. We would rather not send you anything, than send you an item that isn't exactly what you want!
There are a few products that don't require artwork approval. For these products, we will place them straight into production for you and get them shipped out as soon as we can.
As per Australian Consumer law, we generally don't accept refunds and returns for change of mind, as most of our items are personalised. However, we would like to work with you if you're dissatisfied with your product, or have changed your mind, so please get in touch and we'll do everything we can to help!
However, we do replace items that are faulty, and also items that are broken in transit, at our cost. You should receive the item you have paid for in good working order, even if the postage provider damages it.
We may offer change of mind refunds at our discretion, however, there may be some fees involved:
In the case where the item isn't personalised, or can be returned to us for recycling or re-use, at our discretion, we will refund you upon receipt of the item back to us. You will need to pay the postage back to us. We'll then refund you minus our original postage cost, and the payment processor fee. The postage provider and payment processor won't refund us in the case of your return, and as such we have to pass this on.
If your item is personalised, it may be possible to recycle some components, although this is rare. Please get in touch with us and we will advise of what we can do - we'd really like to help where we can!
If we make a refund under our guarantees - that is we miss your event date (see the other terms for this below) - we will refund you the full amount you paid us. This is the only fair solution to you, as we have let you down.
We are not required to, but we will replace any items broken in transit. We carefully package all items, including cutting custom packaging for many of our products. However, sometimes things do get broken in transit. It's our policy to replace these items broken in transit.
As of the 1st of April 2020, we have had to suspend this guarantee, unless you select express post. This is due to delivery delays outside our control. We hope to resume this as soon as possible.
We're quick to make and post items - very quick in a lot of cases. So we offer a guarantee that if we miss your event date, you will get a full refund. However, it's a two way street - there are timeframes we just can't make - and we'll let you know as soon as an issue arises.
It's extremely rare for our guarantee to go into effect, but we need to have a few ground rules so you know how it works!
The guarantee is in effect if:
There are a few things out of our control that unfortunately can not be covered by our guarantee:
We want to work with you, and in some cases we may still choose to provide a refund if some of the above conditions are not met. Just start a conversation with us as we're really keen to resolve any issues with you.
As always, quick and efficient service and a great product😀
