We will always ensure that the QR Codes we create are working before they are supplied to the Client either as a file in their own right and/or within a design file that we have created on the Client’s behalf.  In the event that a QR Code cannot work once we have created it, and an alternative is not preferred by the Client, no charge will be incurred by the Client or a full refund for the QR code will be issued where monies have already been received.

It is possible for us to provide files with a resolution of 150 PPI and 300 PPI if preferred however these variations in resolution will impact the display size upon the social media platform, across viewing devices and website browsers and how they render, therefore it is important to ensure that any publishing of such design files by the Client to your Facebook Account is done so with this in mind and in accordance with Section 4.11 of this Agreement.

e. Upon completion of our setup service, we can publish your Facebook page as part of the services which would enable it to be visible to the public.  This will only happen once all design files are in place.  Alternatively, the Client can opt to have the page left as unpublished.  This means that it will only be visible to any admin member(s) assigned to manage/use the Page, in which case, this will initially be BusiKind until the Client specifies an existing Facebook user who they wish to manage their Page formally upon completion of our Setup Service.

iv. Further Considerations. Prior to the setting up of a Facebook Page and/or an Instagram Account it is important to consider that if and/or when opting for an Instagram profile without connecting it to a corresponding Facebook Page, that you could then only post and/or edit posts from within the Instagram Application (App) itself which, currently, can only be done using a mobile device and/or tablet that enables use of the Instagram App.

 

Alternatively, if you did opt for a corresponding Facebook Page for your business, this Page would then be connected and synchronised to your Instagram Profile.  In this case, Clients are enabled to streamline account posts to both platforms from within Facebook via the Facebook Business Suite, making the posting and/or editing of posts more convenient.

Notice for EU consumers:  In accordance with Article 16(c) and (e) of the Directive 2011/83/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2011 on consumer rights, the right of withdrawal may not be provided for:

Importantly, Problem Reports MUST be provided to Printful within 4 weeks of the product's date of receipt.  Products must NOT be returned direct to Printful prior to receiving a response from us or until we advise otherwise.
 

xi. Cancelling An Order:  The customer accepts that due to the nature of the Gift Store Products, in that they are produced on a ‘made to order’ basis and therefore qualify as personalised item(s), an order can only be cancelled if it has not yet been fulfilled by Printful.  In which case, you would need to raise the cancellation with us prior to its fulfilment in order to receive a full refund.  Printful typically fulfil all orders made within 2-7 days of an order being placed.  However, orders can be fulfilled from as soon as within a couple of hours of an order being placed.  Therefore, the Customer agrees that in placing an order with us, we cannot guarantee how quickly Printful will fulfil their order and that cancellation and refund, therefore, cannot be guaranteed by us and may not be possible subject to its fulfilment.  The customer accepts these terms of service when placing their order(s) with us.
