3. ORDERS AND CANCELLATION

As a part of the checkout process on this website, you will be able to select the date for delivery of your first order, whether that delivery is part of a subscription or a one-off order. You will also be able to select the frequency of recurrence (in the case of a subscription) of your order. We will make every effort to satisfy your selection, but this cannot be guaranteed. Where we are unable to satisfy your selection, we will contact you to make alternative arrangements. Where we are unable to make alternative arrangements, we will refund you in full via the payment method used to place the order.
Changes to your order
If you wish to alter your order or subscription, please do so via the "My Account" area of the FLOWERBX website or by contacting Customer Care at email@example.com. We'll always do our best to make last-minute changes for you, but we can only guarantee changes (including to the delivery address and in relation to card messages) where we receive not less than 36 hours’ notice.
Your cancellation rights
You can cancel single orders by giving us not less than 36 hours’ notice prior to the requested delivery date. In those circumstances a full refund will be given. If a lesser period of notice is given, we will only give a refund, at our discretion, if we have not started preparation of your order at the time that your notice is actually processed by us.
You can cancel your order via the "My Account" area of the FLOWERBX website. You can also cancel by contacting Customer Care at firstname.lastname@example.org or by completing the model cancellation form available here.
Suspending or cancelling your subscription
If you wish to temporarily suspend or permanently cancel your subscription, please do so via the "My Account" area of the FLOWERBX website. You can suspend or cancel a subscription at any time by giving not less than 36 hours’ notice before any nominated delivery date within your subscription plan. Provided you have given us the specified notice, the suspension or cancellation will take effect without charge. In such circumstances, if your card has already been charged we will issue a full refund. If a lesser period of notice is given, we will only give a refund, at our discretion, if we have not started preparation of your delivery at the time that your notice is actually processed by us.
Where notice is received within 36 hours of your next nominated delivery date and we have been unable to make the requested changes because we have started preparation of your next order, you will still receive and be charged for your next delivery and your suspension or cancellation will take effect thereafter. In the case of a suspended subscription, your subscription will in any event resume on the date that you originally intended your subscription to resume.
Where you instruct us to suspend your subscription, such instruction will only take effect for the number of times you select. In order to permanently cancel a subscription, a cancellation request must be made. You can cancel your subscription via the "My Account" area of the FLOWERBX website. You can also cancel by contacting Customer Care at email@example.com or by completing the model cancellation form available here
The price for each order within a subscription is the price at the time that a subscription is set up. For various reasons, including changes in market conditions, price increases from our suppliers and partners, and inflation, we may increase our prices from time to time to reflect these increased costs. If we raise our prices, we will give our subscribers not less than 14 days’ notice via email and you will have the opportunity to cancel your subscription in accordance with the preceding provision. If your next nominated delivery date falls within the 14 day notice period, the price that you will be charged for that delivery will be the price prevailing immediately prior to the notification. If your next nominated delivery date falls outside the nominated delivery date, the price that you will be charged for that delivery will be the price that is notified to you in the notice (unless you cancel your subscription in accordance with the preceding provision).
Gift vouchers shall be valid for 12 months from the date of purchase, after which the remaining balance will be cancelled. Gift cards and e-gift cards cannot be returned or refunded, except in accordance with your statutory rights, for example in the event they are not of satisfactory quality.
Payment Methods and Storage of Card Details
We accept American Express, Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards. In order to offer the best security, all our payments are processed securely by Pay and Shop Limited, trading as Realex Payments, a division of Global Payments Inc..

5. OUR RETURNS AND REFUNDS POLICY
We aim please our customers by delivering fresh flowers, in great condition, on time. We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with these Terms and Conditions.
Freshness and Damage
Our flower orders will often be sent out in bud form meaning they will last longer with the recipient. While our flowers are packed carefully to ensure they arrive as fresh and beautiful as when they left us, on occasions (and for reasons beyond our control) they may be damaged in transit. If you receive flowers that do not seem fresh or are damaged, please contact Customer Care at email@example.com within 24 hours of receipt to let us know. You will need to email us a photo of the un-fresh or damaged flowers within 24 hours of receipt in order to be eligible for a refund.
If in our reasonable determination the flowers do not meet our own high standards, we will give you the choice of a free replacement at our next available delivery date, or a refund. If we offer you a refund, we will refund you the full amount within 3 days.Please note that banks might take an additional 3-5 days to refund the amount to your card.
Please note, you can also cancel your order by completing the model cancellation form available here and returning it to us within 24 hours of your receipt of your delivery. Where returning the cancellation form via post, please note that we will still need to be notified by email that you are cancelling your order within 24 hours of your receipt of your delivery. In addition, we will also need you to email us a photo of the un-fresh or damaged flowers within 24 hours of receipt in order.
Please understand that, due to their nature, we are unable to accept returns of perishable or customised goods for any other reason other than that stated above.
We take all appropriate steps to make sure our flowers are delivered. If we fail to deliver your order within 3 days of the intended delivery date we will (at our discretion) send you a replacement on the next available delivery date or we will refund you the full price of your order within 3 days of our decision to refund you.Please note that banks might take an additional 3-5 days to refund the amount on your card.
Cancellation of orders for non-perishable non-customised goods
In respect of non-perishable non-customised goods, if you are of the view that the goods are of unsatisfactory quality, unfit for purpose or not as described, you have a right to cancel your order from the date that you receive the goods until 30 calendar days after such date. You may exercise your right to cancel your order for non-perishable non-customised goods by contacting Customer Care at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know. You can also cancel your order by completing the model cancellation form available here.

Subject to the below, you shall be entitled to a full refund of the purchase price (including standard delivery costs but excluding enhanced delivery costs) of the goods within 14 days of our receipt of the goods.
The right to a refund shall not apply where the goods have been damaged through no fault of FLOWERBX or its courier.
6. FLOWER AVAILABILITY, SUBSTITUTION AND VARIATION
All floral products are subject to availability. In the event of any supply difficulties or if the flowers we have received from our growers that are needed to make up your order do not meet our high quality standards, we reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to substitute any product with an alternate product of a similar style and equivalent (or greater) value and quality. If we are unable for any reason to make up a satisfactory replacement, we will make a full refund of the price of your order as above.
The images of flowers and other products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from the images displayed on your device.
7. PROMOTION AND DISCOUNT CODES
At our discretion, from time to time, we may sell products at promotional or discounted prices. These promotions are valid from the time that we introduce them to the end date of the promotion and they cannot be used for orders given before the promotion introduction date or after the promotion end date.
In the event that a customer has placed an order and the price of the ordered product subsequently falls or is discounted owing to a promotion, the price of the product at the time of order shall prevail.
Our promotions are dependent on and subject to availability. We may change the terms of promotions, or withdraw them altogether, at any time, and without prior notice. All orders and subscription requests received by FLOWERBX pursuant to a promotion are an offer by you to purchase goods at the promotional or discounted price and are subject to FLOWERBX’s acceptance of the offer.
Promotions may either be personal and available to FLOWERBX’s customers in general or they may be personalised to an individual customer. Where promotions are personalised, it will only be possible for the customer in receipt of the promotion to redeem the promotional code.
