7.3    Hamper Fayre Ltd insures each purchase during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to the customer. We require a signature from the recipient at which point responsibility for the goods passes to the customer. If you have a specified recipient who is not the person that placed the order (for example as a Gift) then the person who placed the order accepts that evidence of a signature by the recipient (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery ands fulfillment by Hamper Fayre Ltd and transfer of responsibility in the same way.

7.4   To purchase products containing alcohol from Hamper Fayre Ltd a person must be of legal age (i.e. 18 years old). Delivery will only be made to individuals of legal purchase age and our Delivery Company will require a signature on delivery. Our delivery driver will check ID if they are unsure of the recipients age.

8.      Delivery of Hampers containing no fresh food:

         All our goods require a signature upon delivery. If the recipient is not there to receive a parcel the carrier will deliver to an immediate neighbour or alternatively leave a card with contact details so that re-delivery or collection can be arranged. If the carrier does not receive a response to the card they will return the parcel to us after 4-5 working days.

9.     Delivery of Hampers containing fresh food:

         Fresh food cannot be delivered to mainland UK locations on a Sunday or Monday as we cannot guarantee that they will remain fresh during transit over a weekend.

         Please ensure that the intended recipient is available to receive the Gift as we cannot be held responsible for these products if we are unable to complete FIRST TIME DELIVERY. All Hampers containing fresh food and/or alcohol must be signed for upon delivery

         We regret that we are unable to offer product or delivery refunds for failed deliveries caused by the intended recipient not being at home or due to us having been provided with an incorrect delivery address.

         All fresh food needs to be opened and refrigerated within 48 hours of dispatch to ensure that the contents remain safe to consume.
