Terms & Conditions
The full price of goods ordered must be paid prior to dispatch. All orders must be paid for in Pounds Sterling.
If you prefer, payment can be made by cheque. If this is the case then the cheque must be drawn on a bank account located within the United Kingdom.
If paying by cheque you will firstly need to confirm your order to us by emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org. This should include :-
- the item description of each product you want to order
- the product code for each item
- the quantity required for each item
- the preferred delivery option
Party Puffin will then reply to you to confirm the total amount payable for the order. Please note that payment by cheque does slow your order down as no items can be sent until the funds have cleared in our account.
Stock Availability and Delivery
All items displayed on the website are usually in stock and if they are not then we will often already have additional supplies on order from our suppliers. If the quantity of stock you want is not currently available please contact us first before placing your order.
We will wait until we can send you your complete order before we deliver your items. If, when waiting for any new stock to arrive at our warehouse, our delivery date appears to put your party at risk, we will contact you to discuss possible alternatives. If you are in any way concerned about the delivery date then you may cancel the order at any time up to the point we dispatch your order and we will refund you in full.
If out of stock items are not available within 4 weeks of the order date, we will automatically cancel these items from the order and refund you for the amount paid for these items.
Party Puffin shall not be liable for delay or failure to deliver products promptly if such failure arises due to force majeure or by reason of any delays occasioned by strikes, riots, lockouts or other labour trouble, war, fire, accident, mechanical failure, delay or failure of delivery of the products to Party Puffin Ltd by manufacturers suppliers or other persons; government action, legislation or regulation of any kind; Act of God, weather conditions or any circumstances whatsoever outside our reasonable control.

During the Olympic Games (27 July to 12 August) and Paralympic Games (29 August to 9 September) there will be restrictions in place for areas around Olympic venues, in and outside of London. These restrictions come into effect as early as 15th July 2012. From this date, these restrictions may affect the speed at which your goods will be delivered and so our usual delivery timescales will not apply in these affected areas :
- Timed deliveries will not be made available
- There is a strong possibility that other services will also be delayed
- We will therefore not offer compensation for delays to collection or delivery
- Deliveries within 1 mile radius of Olympic venues will be subject to an additional surcharge or cancellation at our discretion.
- We strongly advise you to avoid requesting delivery to an affected postcode if possible
Standard delivery orders will normally be dispatched on the next working day after the order was placed and will be sent via a courier. Orders should arrive within 3 to 5 working days from the dispatch date. However, this is not a guaranteed
service and delays can sometimes occur with the service for which Party Puffin Ltd cannot be held liable for.
Express orders will be dispatched on the same working day if the order is received before midday. If the order is received after midday then Express orders will be dispatched on the next working day.
Express orders will be dispatched on a 48 hour delivery basis but will require a signature from the customer. The couriers used for Express deliveries should deliver the goods before 9pm on the expected delivery date. However, this is not a guaranteed service and Party Puffin Ltd cannot be held responsible for late delivery.
