Product Descriptions. We use our reasonable endeavors to make sure that every product on the Sites is shown accurately and that prices are correct. However, occasionally there may be small variations in color, typefaces and layout.
Placing Your Order. When you place an order (by choosing your product, personalizing if applicable and completing the online checkout process), we will send you an order acknowledgement by email. This will detail the products you have ordered. Please note that your completion of the online checkout process does not constitute our acceptance of your order. Our acceptance of your order only takes place when we ship it. A ‘purchase contract’ between you and FortyFour is therefore made at the point of shipment, rather than at the point of payment. If you have cancelled your order, or if we notify you that we cannot accept your order, then no purchase contract will have been made. From time to time, we may not be able to accept an order for the following reasons: (a) Where we cannot obtain authorization for your payment; (b) If you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in these Terms of Sale; or (c) If the order for personalized products contains reference to any names, words, acronyms, symbols or other content that is not approved by The Coca-Cola Company. We reserve the right to cancel your order at any time and issue a full refund.
Personalizing Your Items. Select items, as advertised, may be available for personalization. Neither The Coca-Cola Company nor FortyFour has an obligation to personalize beyond the rules stated in these Terms of Sale. The Coca-Cola Company aims to provide you with a fast, high-quality service, so any products you order are immediately sent for production. Please double-check your order on screen and your acknowledgement email carefully to ensure that all the details are correct. We cannot refund items where the personalization has been misspelled due to an error made by you.
Note that there are certain names or phrases that will not be approved for personalization due to their double meanings or cultural and religious sensitivities. The Coca-Cola Company and FortyFour must and do reserve the absolute right to decline orders for the product that in their sole judgment and discretion contain subject matter that may be considered inappropriate or offensive, including, without limitation, inappropriate, offensive words, acronyms, symbols or other objectionable content as defined above. Products also may not include: (a) product names, trademarks, copyrights, or business names (including but not limited to, restaurant names); (b) celebrity names or specific sports teams having trademark protection; (c) major events, landmarks, religious or political phrases; (d) names of schools or institutions; (e) website names/references; or (f) political content.
Ordering multiple products. Orders containing multiple items may be shipped separately.
Payment. You can pay for your goods using major credit or debit cards, PayPal or Apple Pay.
Prices and Sales Tax. Unless otherwise specified, all prices shown include any deposit fees at the prevailing rate, if applicable. Product prices shown on the Sites do not include sales tax. All applicable sales tax will be calculated and displayed during checkout, based on the shipping destination.
For most items, prices are shown exclusive of postage and packaging charges; these will be shown separately at the checkout stage. In some cases, prices shown may include postage and packaging. If this is the case, it will be clearly stated.
Shipping. Shipping charges will be added to your order during the checkout process. From time to time, we may offer free shipping promotions, the terms of which will be advertised on the Sites and are subject to change without prior notice. If you want to check the postage and packaging cost of your order, simply place the items in the online shopping basket with the correct quantity and address. We will then calculate the charge for you.
Generally, orders are delivered within a week, but please allow 2 to 3 weeks from the date of placing your order for your items to arrive. If any of the details you have given us in your delivery address are incorrect, we are not liable for any items which are not received.
Circumstances Beyond Our Control. Neither we, nor any courier or carrier service that we use, shall be liable for any failure to perform, where such failure or delay results from any circumstances outside our reasonable control; these circumstances to include but not be limited to any adverse weather conditions, such as snow, flood, extreme winds, fire, explosion, accident, traffic congestion, obstruction of any private or public highway, acts of governmental authorities, pandemic, riot, terrorism, act of God, or from any industrial dispute or strike.
Changing or Canceling an Order. We can assist with making changes to order quantities or shipping addresses until 7PM EST on the day the order was placed. Please contact our Customer Service Team at 1-800-557-4616, who will be happy to assist.
Returns and Refunds. We want you to LOVE your products. In the rare case that you’re not satisfied with your order, please contact us WITHIN 15 DAYS of receipt using the Contact Us form on the Sites or call our Consumer Affairs Department at 1-800-557-4616. We generally do not accept returns on customized or consumable products, unless the product differs materially from what was ordered on the Sites or it is otherwise flawed. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any returns outside of 15 days of receipt.
Where an item is faulty, if you are eligible for a refund, we will reimburse the price you have paid for the product or products onto the credit or debit card with which you paid. Alternatively, we may offer a coupon or voucher (if applicable) or replace the item free of charge.
