CONTRACT

Your contract for purchases made through www.gillysballoons.co.uk is with Gilly’s Balloon Co. Your submission of an order represents an offer to purchase by you and it is not contractually binding on us until we have accepted your order by dispatching your product(s) to you. This means that:

All the details that you provide to Gilly’s Balloon Co for the purpose of purchasing products must be true, accurate, current and complete in all respects and if requested by us you must provide, within a reasonable time frame, enough information to allow us to check the accuracy and validity of any information supplied by you, or your identity. If we suspect that you have engaged in or are about to engage in fraudulent or illegal activity Gilly’s Balloon Co holds the right to cancel your order.

You agree that if you break these conditions you will be responsible for the costs and expenses that Gilly’s Balloon Co incurs as a result of the breach, including reasonable legal fees (if applicable). You will remain liable if someone else uses your shopping account and/or personal information unless you can prove that such use was fraudulent.

PRIVACY & SECURITY

Your Personal Information - its use & storage


Whenever you supply any personal information to Gilly’s Balloon Co we have a legal obligation towards you in how we deal with that data.

We want you to be very clear about what information we collect and why we collect it. We collect your personal information in four different ways, for four different purposes:

This information is purely used to deliver your order and keep an order history for you. We do not share this information with any third parties or for any other purposes. You can at any time request that we permanently delete your information and you can do this by calling: 01482 847007 or emailing sales@gillysballoons.co.uk. This information is then removed from our data base and permanently delete from our website server.

Payment: When you place an order with us we have to collect financial details such as card number, expiry date and CVS number. We do not handle or hold any of this information. Any financial information is handled and held by our Merchant Bank. You will see our Badge of Trust on our Payment Page which means that we have had to demonstrate that we adhere strictly to SSL Secure Shopping security and legal requirements.

PLACING AN ORDER

Once you have placed an order with us we will send you a confirmation that your order has been received but this is not a confirmation that your order has been accepted. If a product is incorrectly priced or incorrectly described Gilly’s Balloon Co is not obliged to sell you that product but will immediately refund any payment made in full. If Gilly’s Balloon Co does not have enough stock to accept your order you can request that we notify you as soon as stock is available. Gilly’s Balloon Co is not able to accept payment for advance orders. Your credit/debit card account will be authorised when your order is placed and payment taken. If for any reason Gilly’s Balloon Co is unable to fulfil your order you will be contacted, at latest by the next working day, and refunded in full.
