For one-time purchases of a gift or gifts, upon final approval and confirmation of the gifts to be sent to your recipients, you agree to pay the fees set forth in the electronic purchase order or approval/confirmation form submitted through the user interface of the TYK Platform (each, a “Confirmation Form”). TYK shall not be required to complete delivery of the gift, or provide any further services until TYK has received payment in full the applicable gift(s) and any fees for services provided in connection therewith.
3.2. Campaigns. You may run a gifting campaign (“Campaign”) subject to you and TYK mutually executing a campaign commitment form (“Campaign Commitment Form”) setting forth the scope, details and any additional terms and conditions related to the Campaign. Unless otherwise set forth on the applicable Campaign Commitment Form, all fees for the Campaign shall be due and payable in accordance with the Confirmation Form. TYK shall not be required to complete delivery of any gifts, launch or execute the Campaign or provide any further services until TYK has received payment in full the applicable Campaign and any fees for services provided in connection therewith.
3.3. Subscriptions. We offer a paid subscription service to access the TYK Service which are available on monthly and yearly subscription plans. Each paid subscriber has a monthly gift balance. These subscription balances can transfer over from month to month. We will deduct from your balance the cost of the gift(s) you choose for your recipient. If the full cost of the gift chosen by you is not covered by your then-current subscription balance, you will be required to pay the remaining balance before the gift will be delivered to your recipient. If you have purchased a subscription for the TYK Service, you shall pay to TYK the fees specified in the Confirmation Form submitted by you to TYK for the applicable subscription tier. Unless otherwise set forth on the Confirmation Form, the subscription fees will remain fixed during the subscription term unless you (i) exceed the permitted number of gifts under your subscription or your current subscription balance, (ii) upgrade your subscription, or (iii) subscribe to additional features or products. In the event a price change applies to you, you will be charged at the start of the next billing period of your current subscription term in accordance with the appropriate price structure. Subscriptions shall automatically renew following the end of each subscription term set forth on the Confirmation Form at TYK’s then-current pricing for your then-existing subscription, unless you provide TYK written notice of non-renewal or termination to TYK at firstname.lastname@example.org, prior to the expiration of your then-current subscription term. For more information regarding TYK’s subscriptions, including pricing, please see our subscriptions page located here www.thankyoukind.ly/plans.

TYK may increase the amount of fees and rates payable by you upon written notice to you, provided that any such increase shall not be more than once in any twelve (12) month period. The fees are exclusive of all applicable sales, use, value-added and other taxes, or other similar charges, and you will be responsible for payment of all such taxes (other than taxes based on TYK’s income), and any related penalties and interest, arising from the payment of the fees, the delivery of the TYK Service, or performance of any services by TYK. All fees are non-refundable and non-returnable.
4. Obligations; Feedback; Changes; Project Completion
4.1. Your Obligations. You agree to work expeditiously with TYK to complete the delivery of the gift(s) and/or Campaign by the completion date specified in the Confirmation Form or as otherwise provided in the user interface of the TYK Platform. TYK will promptly notify you of any delay or anticipated delay in the performance of services, the reasons for the delay and the actions being taken by TYK to overcome or mitigate the delays.
4.2. Gift Feedback. If you do not provide timely feedback, information and approvals or otherwise delay the completion of the gift giving within the applicable deadline, you may be required to pay an additional delay fee. The delay fee is a retainer to hold TYK’s services. The fee will be enforced if the delay is longer than two weeks and can be used no more than two times. The fee will be proportional to the cost to TYK to hold the services of the contractors and employees past the date invoiced for delivery. This will include and is not limited to, any overtime or rush fees that will be necessary to ensure that the project is completed in a timely manner. If either you do not pay the fee or if the delay is longer than two weeks or is invoked more than twice you will be deemed in breach of these Term.
4.3. Changes to Your Order. You may from time to time request changes to the gifts ordered/purchased by you (including, but not limited to changes in the specifications) or a Campaign by issuing a written request to TYK. If you make a request via e-mail, this will be considered a written request. All verbal requests require the follow up of a written correspondence between your point person for communication with TYK and TYK. TYK will promptly respond in writing to any such request for changes, stating how such proposed modifications to the order/purchase and/or Campaign will affect the time and/or materials required for TYK to carry out the delivery of the gift(s) and/or Campaign with the requested changes, as well as any proposed equitable adjustment in the fees hereunder. If You agree in writing to the new estimates, the applicable Confirmation Form will automatically be deemed amended to incorporate the agreed-upon revisions to the gifts, and/or Campaign and/or fees. You must pay the additional fees in full before TYK will continue provided any services.
4.4. Additional Fees. TYK goes through a multistep process to create your perfect gift. Each round of work builds upon the previous round of work. Once that round of work is completed any work necessary to change the previous round will subject the gift’s estimated completion time to be changed. Additionally, TYK reserves the right to charge an additional fee for each revision to a previous round or for any additional rounds.
4.5. Project Completion. When TYK determines the gift is complete, a confirmation email will be sent by TYK to you or you will otherwise be notified through the user interface of the TYK Platform.
5.1. Selecting a Delivery Date. Deliveries are available only on the days that can be selected in the calendar provided through the TYK Platform. If you cannot choose a delivery date of your choice, it means a delivery is not possible on that day. Please contact our customer service team if you need any suggestions on any other gifts that may be available for your choice day.
5.2. Timing of Deliveries. Deliveries via courier services cannot be delivered at specific times. All orders will be delivered during the working day between 10am to 7pm (in the recipient time zone) during normal days (exceptions are such high gifting days like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, etc. during which deliveries can happen beyond this time range).
5.3. Delays in Deliveries. To avoid problems or delays with delivery, please ensure that you have provided with the full address details, including accurate postcode of the recipient and telephone number so that it would be easy for our delivery services to locate them. It would also be very helpful if you provide us with your daytime contact telephone number or e-mail address so that we can notify you in the event that any delivery problems are encountered.
5.4. TYK Obligations. Whilst we agree to use all reasonable endeavors to ensure that delivery will be on the requested delivery date or during the delivery period, you acknowledge that actual delivery will be via a third party courier service. In very occasional circumstances delivery on the requested terms will not be possible, in such circumstances you will be given prior notice wherever possible and we shall either make alternative arrangements or refund your payment in full in accordance with clause mentioned above.
5.5. Third Party Acceptance of Deliveries. We do not recommend courier deliveries to hospitals or funerals. In the case of delivery to certain locations, where a third party is involved, such as offices, hospitals, Funeral Directors, airports, hotels, ships and other business locations, the signature of any person authorized to accept delivery on behalf of the organization shall be accepted as proof of delivery to your chosen recipient.
5.6. Failure to Receive or Accept Deliveries. Please be aware that the carrier/courier will deliver the goods to the address provided in good faith and we cannot accept responsibility if the intended recipient is no longer at that address and the receiver refuses or fails to return the items. Please note that where the carrier is unable to find someone to accept delivery, or unable to leave the delivery in a secure location, they will leave a card at the address for the recipient to make contact and re-arrange delivery. If the recipient fails to make contact in good time we reserve the right to charge for re-delivery to that or an alternative address.
5.7. Orders and Deliveries of Alcoholic Beverages. Some of the gift options that may be sent to the recipients contain alcoholic beverage products. You must be an adult (21 years or older) to place a request for an order for a gift that contains an alcoholic beverage, which we will then forward to our designated licensed retailer or winery for acceptance, sale and processing of your order. Similarly, the recipient of your wine product order must be 21 years or older to accept delivery. The shipping carrier shall require identification, age verification and signature of an adult at the time of delivery. By placing your request for a gift containing an alcoholic beverage you certify under penalty of law that you and the intended recipient are at least 21 years old. Any willful misrepresentation of your, or the recipient's age, in order to unlawfully obtain alcoholic beverage is a crime and TYK will cooperate with authorities to prosecute you and the recipient to the fullest extent of the law.
