Loss or damage of goods
- All risk of loss or damage to your ordered products passes to you when we dispatch your order. While we package your chocolates and biscuits safely, and every effort is made to ensure they arrive in the same condition as they are sent, Sweet Things by Caroline have no control over weather conditions or how parcels are handled during transport, therefore cannot guarantee the condition in which they will arrive to you. To decrease the likelihood of your products being exposed to extreme temperatures, please provide a delivery address where someone will be present upon delivery. Please note, we do not deliver to PO Boxes or parcel lockers, as these are subjected to higher temperatures.
- Sweet Things by Caroline will not accept liability for any loss or damage caused to any person due to late delivery, whether this be a result of delay caused by Australia Post, or any other event which is out of our control. This includes, but is not limited to, us being provided with an incorrect delivery address.
