Abuse of Cakes Around Town staff members.

It is totally unacceptable to think it is OK to abuse someone who is simply doing their job in any business or because we closed our retail store down..

Please ensure all Cakes Around Town Gift Vouchers are redeemed at the time of ordering. Once the order has been submitted and paid for by means other than a voucher, we are unable to retrospectively redeem a Gift Voucher to offset that cost. Please bear this in mind.
All Gift Vouchers are issued with an expiry date as indicated on the voucher itself. Once that Gift Voucher has expired, we are unable to extend the expiry date under any circumstances.
It is the Gift Voucher holders responsibility to ensure it is redeemed before the expiry date.
It is only possible to use one gift voucher per purchase.
When do you charge my credit card?
We take payment at the time of order, as opposed to the time of dispatch.
All online credit card orders are charged upfront, at the time the order is made via PAYPAL. We do this to validate the order and to ensure that all stock is pre-purchased. No order is accepted by Cakes Around Town until the order has been checked and approved. If there is a problem, we will telephone you or e-mail you within three (3) working days.
Paying upfront also substantially reduces order processing time, and ensures that as a customer, all you need to do is sit back and wait for your delivery to arrive.
Cakes Around Town is not responsible for any loss or damage caused by late delivery or cancellation of an order or a product.
Our agreement with you only comes into existence once we have both confirmed your order and your payment has been processed.
Once we have accepted payment for an order, cancellation of the order is at our sole discretion after taking into account the circumstances and reasons for cancellation.
If you need to cancel an order, please contact us immediately on Priority Call 07 3160 8728 or email us at email@example.com.
IMPORTANT: Cakes Around Town credit card purchases will be displayed as Cakes Around Town on your credit card statement.

What if my order does not arrive
It is the responsibility of the customer to inform Cakes Around Town if an order does not arrive. Once we learn an order has not arrived by the due date, we will lodge enquiries with the courier/postal service to ensure delivery occurs as soon as possible.

Quality and Maintenance of Goods
At Cakes Around Town we pride ourselves on the quality of our products and services. It is important to remember, however, that most food items are perishable and may react to temperature conditions, particularly cake, chocolate and fresh items, which, as a result may affect life of the product.
We recommend, if you are not familiar with the correct temperatures for the these food types or specific produce, that you contact us for further information. Once delivery has occurred Quality and maintenance of the produce is your responsibility.
Out of Stock & Substitution
In the unlikely event that we cannot satisfy your order due to stock unavailability, we will contact you (via e-mail or telephone) to offer you an alternative or to determine how you want to proceed with your order.
Refunds and Returns
Cakes Around Town will replace the goods you purchase if the goods you purchase:
• are not of merchantable quality (i.e. if your supplies are damaged at time of delivery – but not if you simply do not like the taste of the cake mix)
• don't match any description given of the goods (this would include corresponding with a photograph of the goods)
• are not free from defects.
Please note, all food products are perishable. There is NO RETURNS on food products - a food product is any product that can be consumed. (food colour, fondant, buttercream, chocolate, dusts, etc)

Security of information from your browser to our server?
A critical concern for electronic commerce is the secure transmission of data. To protect consumer data during transmission, Cakes Around Town uses the latest SSL encryption technology that securely passes transaction data to the Cakes Around Town gateway.
We use SSL (Secured Socket Layer) which means that we encrypt information sent to the server with a key that makes it almost impossible to decrypt. To do this we use the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 256 bit encryption technology. This is superior to the industry standard.
This is far more secure than giving you credit card over the phone where someone could be listening, or to a cashier where someone can either look over your shoulder or get hold of your credit card receipt. We do not store or take credit card details via the net, all these details are processed by www.paypal.com.
