7. CANCELLING YOUR ORDER AND RETURNING GOODS
Helium filled balloons are a perishable and personalised product and therefore cannot be returned under the UK Distance Selling Regulations (2000).
 
7.1. We ask that you inspect the goods as soon as reasonably possible after delivery, and in any case, within 24hrs. You must notify us immediately of any alleged defect, shortage in quantity, or damage. If a balloon does not arrive in good condition, we will require photographic evidence within 24hrs of delivery.
 
7.2. We will not repair or replace the goods either if it is impossible to do so or if (acting reasonably) we consider to do this would be excessive having regard to the value of the goods, nature of the defect and the extent of inconvenience likely to be caused.
 
8. QUALITY GUARANTEE
8.1 All Our helium filled balloons are warranted to be manufactured from materials of the highest quality. It is quite normal and to be expected that between 2 to 5 days that they will slowly start to deflate.
 
8.2 All balloons are inflated shortly before dispatch and dispatched perfectly inflated. However helium is sensitive to temperature changes and if the balloons were to be stored in cold temperature whilst in transit they might appear under inflated upon delivery. This can be resolved by putting the balloon somewhere warm (but not hot). This will cause the helium to expand and the balloon to look fully inflated again.
 
8.3 Vanilla Flair makes no warranties whatsoever as to fitness for a particular purpose for any product advertised or supplied through this website.  We will not be responsible for any consequential damages howsoever caused and our limit of liability will be the replacement costs of the goods supplied.  It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure fitness for purpose and to ensure all product safety warnings are complied with.

8.4 When we refer to a 20" bubble balloon, this is the industry standard Qualatex 20" bubble balloon, uninflated. Once fully inflated, they become almost round and will measure approx 15 -16 inches from edge to edge.
 
8.5 Your legal rights as a consumer are unaffected.
