We use our reasonable endeavors to make sure that every product on our website is shown accurately and that prices are correct.

The Coca-Cola Company disclaims all representations and warranties that the content or information on this Website is accurate, complete, up to date or does not infringe the rights of any third party.
4.2. Placing your order.
When you place an order with us (by choosing your product, personalizing if applicable and completing our online checkout process), we will send you an order acknowledgement by email. This will detail the products you have ordered. Please note that your completion of the online checkout process does not constitute our acceptance of your order. Our acceptance of your order only takes place when we ship it. A ‘purchase contract’ between you and FortyFour, LLC is therefore made at the point of shipment, rather than at the point of payment. If you have cancelled your order, or if we notify you that we cannot accept your order, then no purchase contract will have been made. From time to time, we may not be able to accept an order for the following reasons a. Where we cannot obtain authorization for your payment b. If you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions c. If the order for personalized products contains reference to any names, words, acronyms, symbols or other content that is not approved by Coca-Cola. We reserve the right to cancel your order at any time and issue a full refund. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Please double-check your order on screen and your acknowledgement email carefully to check that all the details are correct. We cannot refund items where the personalization has been misspelled due to an error made by you.
4.4 Suggesting a name or phrase for personalization
Note that there will be a number of names or phrases that will not be allowed due to their double meanings or cultural and religious sensitivities.
