Terms and Conditions
All orders and subscription requests received are an offer to purchase and are subject to acceptance by GINGER AND SPICE FLORIST, and any of its personnel, reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to reject any order without giving reasons. In the event of rejection, we will refund or cancel any payments received in full, via the payment method used to place the order. Acceptance of your offer and completion of the contract between us only takes place when we start to process your order.
FLOWER AVAILABILITY & SUBSTITUTION
All floral products are subject to availability. In the event of any supply difficulties, we may substitute any product with an alternate product of a similar style & equivalent or greater value and quality.
Please be aware that we use a reputable third-party courier service. While we ensure our flowers are packaged here with great care, we cannot guarantee that some damage may not occur in transit. Our courier service applies to orders going outside our same-day delivery zone. Please refer to this and bear in mind when placing your order.
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). We will make every effort to satisfy your selection, but this cannot be guaranteed.
CHANGES TO YOUR ORDER
If you wish to alter your order or subscription, please do so via the “My Account” area of the GINGER AND SPICE FLORIST website or by contacting Customer Care at: [email protected] 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 CANCELLATIONS 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 if we have not started preparation of your order at the time notice is given. The easiest way to cancel your order is via the “My Account” area of the GINGER AND SPICE FLORIST website. You can also cancel by contacting Customer Care at: [email protected]
SUSPENDING OR CANCELLING YOUR SUBSCRIPTION
If you wish to change your subscription, please do so via the “My Account” area of the GINGER AND SPICE FLORIST 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 billed we will issue a full refund. Where notice is received after that time and we have been unable to make the requested changes, please note you will still receive and be charged for your next delivery (as we will have already started cutting your flowers), but your suspension instruction will only take effect for the number of times you select unless a cancellation request is received.
The price for each order within a subscription is the price at the time that a subscription is set up. We reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to raise our prices at any time for reasons including, but not limited to, price increases from our suppliers and partners. If we raise our prices, we will give our subscribers not less than 4 days’ notice before their next delivery and provide the option to cancel your subscription free of charge. If we receive no contact from you 36 hours prior to your requested delivery date, we will assume that the changes are accepted by you and your order will proceed as amended.
We accept Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards. In order to offer the best security, all our payments are processed securely by Global Payments LLP.
For all subscriptions, your credit or debit card will be billed at checkout for your first delivery only. For subsequent deliveries, you will be billed on a recurring basis in every week in which a delivery is scheduled. The amount your card will be billed in any given week will be the value of your order(s) for the given week subject to any changes previously notified to you as above.
If you create an account, your card will be stored securely by Global Payments LLP so that you can check out on future visits without re-entering your card details.
We never store or have access to your credit or debit card details.
