The Recipient will then receive a phone call and voice instructions will instruct you how to hear your JiveBird greeting. The Recipient will also be sent a JiveBird Text Link, to listen to the JiveBird greeting (and subject to choice of elements as provided for in these Terms & Conditions and provision of mobile numbers and email details) an email with a ‘JiveBird eCard’ or “ePhotoCard” with the personal voice message joined together to a selected song track also being made available as a link to listen to.

You place an order with us by selecting a song, recording your greeting/message, selecting an eCard or an ePhotoCard and (if chosen), an e-Gift voucher stating a time and date for The JiveBird or JiveBird Plus to be delivered, and completing our on-line checkout process. You will be asked to provide your mobile number and email address as well as the Recipient’s mobile number and email address so that we can deliver The JiveBird or JiveBird Plus. The voice message, selected song, eCard and photo/or Selfie can be sent by phone and on-line internationally (subject to some possible territorial exclusions as detailed from time to time on the JiveBird App or Website). In relation to the JiveBird Plus e-Gift service, whilst the e-Gift voucher can be sent on-line internationally (as with The JiveBird, with a voice message, selected song, eCard and photo/or Selfie) currently, the selected e-Gift voucher can only be redeemed in the UK. In respect of the JiveBird App, we request to access your Contacts list so that you can easily access your contacts details in order to provide mobile telephone numbers and email addresses. If you decline to allow us access, then you will need to fill out contact details for us to send to the Recipient every time you send A JiveBird or JiveBird Plus.
After you have placed your order, we will send you an acknowledgement by email. This will detail the products you have ordered. You can also visit your Account Information Dashboard for information from time to time.
As we develop our systems we envisage that multiple JiveBird greetings (and later JiveBird releases as we develop them) will be able to be ordered at the same time and will be sent as requested by completing instructions on the JiveBird App (and when available Website) screen(s).
Our catalogue contains many thousands of hit songs, new releases and back catalogue, which is updated regularly with new releases. We aim to provide you with a strong choice of songs. If for any reason you cannot find the song you want, you may contact us, and we will endeavour to locate it for you.
The music recordings on The JiveBIrd or JiveBird Plus App are licensed re-recordings, covers of famous and well-known songs performed by various artists and musicians other than the original artists and musicians who made them famous. However, in some instances, particularly older tracks, there may be recordings performed by the original artists either as the originally recorded hit track, or as a ‘cover recording’ by the original artists or some of the original artists.
When creating and scheduling A JiveBird or JiveBird Plus you have a choice of eCard designs which you can select from and then type your personal message.
When using the JiveBird App to create and schedule your JiveBird or JiveBird Plus you will also have the option of sending an ePhotoCard. For an ePhotoCard, select a frame background for your selected picture or your ‘Selfie’ and then select a picture from your Photo library or take a ‘Selfie’. Then type your message as for the eCard.
You will then be required to provide Recipient details as requested on the JiveBIrd App and/or the JiveBird Website.
Our acceptance of your order only takes place when payment has been activated through our payment system. A Purchase Contract between you and JiveBird is therefore made at the point of payment.
From time to time, we may not be able to accept an order (or deliver post acceptance) for the following reasons (and/or as set out in these Terms and Conditions):
A JiveBird or a JiveBird Plus is delivered by phone (‘JiveBird Phone Call’), text and email. At the scheduled time (subject to these Terms & Conditions and choice and provision of correct mobile numbers and email details) the Recipient will receive a text, the ‘JiveBird Text Alert’, telling them they have A JiveBird or JiveBird Plus. When it’s convenient, the Recipient will then have a choice to press a link to receive a greetings phone call from a JiveBIrd sender. The Recipient will then receive a phone call and voice instructions will instruct you how to hear your JiveBird greeting. The Recipient will also be sent a JiveBird Text Link, to listen to the JiveBird greeting (and subject to choice of elements as provided for in these Terms & Conditions and provision of mobile numbers and email details) an email with a ‘JiveBird eCard’ or “ePhotoCard” with the personal voice message joined together to a selected song track also being made available as a link to listen to.
By offering these three delivery methods, we will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver A JiveBird or JiveBird Plus to the Recipient.
Your payment for the JiveBird Service should cover the full cost of your delivery by phone, text, and email. In respect of the cost of the Recipient’s acceptance to the JiveBird text in the UK, this would, where the Recipient has a contract or bundle, usually be covered by their contract or bundle allocation. In respect of delivery outside the UK, extra charges to the Recipient may be incurred for both receiving the text and the telephone call depending on country and their service provider’s conditions.
JiveBird aims to provide you with a top-class quality service. The JiveBird Text Alert alerting the Recipient to the JiveBird Greeting will be despatched at the date and time you request, the ‘Despatch Time’. Please double-check your order on screen and your acknowledgement email carefully to ensure that all the details are correct as we rely on the details you provide to deliver the JiveBird Service. We cannot refund items where the personal, delivery details have been incorrectly entered or misspelt spelt due to an error made by you.
