You are deemed to have placed an order with us by completing our online checkout process.
We will send you an order acknowledgement (invoice) by email, detailing the products you have ordered.
We are not deemed to have accepted all or any part of an order until we despatch the products and, accordingly, acceptance of an order may be made in instalments or we may accept part of an order and decline part of it. If payment has been taken for all or any part of an order that is declined we will make a refund of all or the relevant part of the payment. We will notify you by email if we decline all or part of an order or if we anticipate a significant delay in our ability to dispatch any products (in which event you will be able to cancel the order in respect of those products).
Please note that we reserve the right to brand our personalised products.
You must be of 18 or above to order any of our personalised alcohol products.
We may refuse to accept an order if:

(c) there has been a pricing or product description error;
(d) you do not meet any of the eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions;
(e) the order is to be delivered outside of the United Kingdom;
(f) the personalisation you have specified contains content which is (or which we believe is or may be) threatening, defamatory, obscene, indecent, seditious, offensive, pornographic, abusive, liable to incite racial or religious hatred, discriminatory, menacing, scandalous, inflammatory, blasphemous, in breach of confidence, political in nature, in breach of privacy or third party intellectual property rights or which may cause annoyance or inconvenience to any person or group of persons.

All prices include VAT (where applicable) at the current rates.
Where we charge separately for packing, carriage and insurance and other relevant charges, the appropriate rates are set out in our specified pricing structure shown elsewhere on this Website.
Prices may change at any time but if prices are increased after you have placed an order but before it is despatched you will not be charged the higher price.
We will deliver the products you have ordered to the delivery address you specify when you place your order. We do not accept liability for, or for any costs arising from, any failure to deliver or need to redeliver if any of the delivery address details you have given us are incorrect.
You may specify a delivery address that is different from your billing address, e.g. for delivery to a friend, a relative, or to your place of work.
We do not deliver outside of the UK except where specified on our Delivery Information page.
Delivery will be made as soon as practicable. We process and dispatch orders Monday to Friday 9am - 5.30pm so delivery and dispatch timescales quoted on the Website exclude weekends or bank holidays.
Whilst we endeavour to deliver products within the specified timescales we cannot guarantee delivery in, or accept liability for deliveries made outside those timescales. We do not accept liability for out of pocket expenses or other costs incurred due to failed or delayed deliveries.
Some postal addresses in Northern Ireland, some islands and some remote areas of Great Britain may not be covered by our normal delivery services and so we may have to contact you to advise you of extra postal charges.
Please notify us by email if the product(s) you have ordered have not arrived within  days of placing the order. The GiftMill accepts no liability for non-delivery if you have not notified us by email within 28 days of placing the order.

RM48: 14 working days from date of despatch;
RM24: 10 working days from date of despatch.

Your rights to return the products to us will not apply in the following circumstances:
-products that we have made, personalised or customised specifically for you

- if any spelling or other mistake on your order is due to your inputting error;
- the product is a perishable item that has been consumed or disposed of.
If you return an item because of an error on our part, or because it is defective, we will happily refund the full value of the item. You can contact our Customer Service department quoting your order number, your name and address, details of the product and the reason for return, and whether you require a refund or a replacement. We will then issue a freepost returns label and will deal with your refund or replacement on receipt of the original product.
Please note we may request a photo to show the damage/ issue before a returns label is issued.
The item(s) must be returned in the condition in which you received it and within 30 days of delivery.
Please note that returns can take up to 7 working days to reach us, unless sent via special delivery.
This returns policy does not affect your statutory rights.
