5. Our Mission, Refunds and Returns
5.1 We strive to put a smile on all of our customers faces by providing and delivering fresh flowers, in great condition and on time.
Our flowers are sent out in bud so that they will last longer when they reach their destination. After a good drink they should be looking happy and fresh. If you receive an order where the flowers do not seem fresh, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know. If, at our sole discretion, the flowers do not meet our standards, we will give you the choice of a replacement free of charge to be delivered at our next available delivery date, or a refund. Please note that we will require you to send a photo of the flowers to us within 48 hours of receipt to qualify for a refund. Please note that the banks may take up to an additional 5 days for the amount to reach your account.
Our flowers are always packed with great care to ensure that they arrive as fresh and beautiful as when they left our door, however on a small number of occasions (and for reasons out of our control) they could get damaged in transit. Should this happen to a level that you believe to be unacceptable, please contact us on email@example.com and at our sole discretion, we will arrange a replacement free of charge to be delivered on the next available date. Please note that we will require a photo of the damaged flowers in question within 48 hours of receipt in order to qualify for a refund. Please note that the banks may take up to an additional 5 days for the amount to reach your account.
5.4 Non Delivery
Of course, we do everything we can to ensure that our flowers are delivered but sometimes mistakes happen and deliveries do not show up. If your order fails to arrive (within 3 days of their intended delivery date) we will send you a free replacement for the next available date, or a refund. Please note that the banks may take up to an additional 5 days for the amount to reach your account.
Please note that as flowers are perishable, we are unable to accept returns.
5.6 Flower Availability
Please note that all of our floral products are subject to availability. In the event of any supply difficulties or if the flowers we have received for your order do not meet our standards, we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to substitute any product with an alternative of a similar style and equivalent (or greater) value and quality.
6. Circumstances beyond our control
6.1 Adverse weather conditions
During adverse weather conditions (including but not unlimited to, ice, flooding, heavy snow or high winds), deliveries may not arrive on time. This is outside of our control and we cannot accept responsibility for the late delivery of the order. Therefore, in the event of adverse weather conditions, we are unable to offer a refund or replacement of any affected orders.
