Why you should read them.
Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us as you will be bound by these terms if you place an order on the Website. These terms tell you who we are, how the products are supplied to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss.
INFORMATION ABOUT US AND HOW TO CONTACT US
Who we are.
We are Florist2Florist.com Limited t/a Direct2Florist a company registered in England and Wales. Our company registration number is 04540923 and our registered office is at 2 Ormrod Street, Farnworth, Bolton, England, BL4 7DW. Our registered VAT number is 817 6839 89.

How we may contact you.
If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
includes emails. When we use the words "writing" or "written" in these terms, this includes emails.
How we work.
We operate the Website as a platform for local florists to sell their products directly to you. Each florist is their own individual business. When you buy products or services on the Website you buy from one of the independent businesses. We do not supply you with any products directly and act as agent for the independent florist. We charge you a fee for the convenience of the use of the Website and the total amount you pay for products or services includes our handling charge. We will make clear to you how much of the amount you pay is for our handling charges.
When you buy products through our website you enter into a contract with the local florist and not us. Our role is limited to acting as agent facilitating the sale of the products and processing payments and refunds between the parties. We also assist in locating an alternative supplier for the products you have ordered if they are unavailable from your chosen supplier. As such we do not have any contractual obligations to you in relation to the products themselves, however, the local florist agrees to supply you the products in line with these terms and conditions.
Sometimes when ordering flowers for delivery outside of the UK, the independent business we use may be another florist network provider who instructs the individual local florist to deliver your goods. In this instance your contract will be with the florist network provider as identified on your order.
Delivery is arranged by the local florist based on your instructions.
How your order is accepted.
Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email or text you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and the local florist.
If your order cannot be accepted.
If we, or the local florist, are unable to accept your order, we, or the local florist will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the product. If a payment has already been taken it will be refunded. This might be because the product is out of stock with the local florists, because of unexpected limits on the local florist’s resources which they could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because the local florist is unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
Your order number.
We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when you place the order and when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
THE FLOWERS AND OTHER PRODUCTS
Flowers and other products may vary slightly from their pictures.
The images of the flowers and other products on our Website are for illustrative purposes only. The images are provided to us by the local florists and we use them in good faith. You will appreciate that every flower is different and we cannot therefore guarantee that the flowers supplied by the local florist will be the same in appearance as those in the pictures on the Website and may therefore vary slightly from those images. The local florist may also need to make minor adjustments to the flowers supplied due to seasonal variations or availability.
Product packaging may vary.
The packaging of the flowers and other products may vary from that shown in images on our website.
YOUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
If you wish to make a change to the flowers or other products you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If the change cannot be made or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see Clause 8- Your rights to end the contract).
OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
Minor changes to the products.
The local florists may change the flowers or products due to seasonal variations in the flowers available alternative, but similar flowers may be supplied. The local florist may also changed the products if required by law.
Changes to the quantity or the flowers or other products and these terms.
In addition, we, or the local florists, may make more substantial changes to the flowers or the other products if your order is unable to be fulfilled in the quantity ordered due to a lack of materials or flowers, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any products paid for but not received.
PROVIDING THE FLOWERS AND PRODUCTS

Refunds will not be available in the case of flowers or personalised products if an incorrect or incomplete address is provided and no contact can be made.
When the flowers and other products will be provided.
During the order process we will let you know when the flowers or other products will be supplied to you or the designated recipient by the local florist. The timescales on the website are an indication only and the local florist will be able to confirm in more detail when delivery will take place. Times given on a particular day are a guide only and, provided the flowers or other products are delivered on that date it forms no basis for a refund. If there is to be a longer delay in delivery we, or the local florist, will contact you to confirm and discuss your options.
We are not responsible for delays outside our control.
If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
Collection by you.
If you have asked to collect the flowers or other products from the local florist’s premises, you can collect them from them at any time during their working hours once you have been contacted by the local florist to confirm the flower or other products are ready for collection.
If there is no-one in when the flowers or other products are delivered.
If no one is available at your chosen location for delivery and the flowers or other products cannot be posted through a letterbox, our local florist (or their delivery provider) will either contact you to discuss alternatives, deliver the flowers or other products to a neighbour (and leave the recipient a note explaining that), leave the flowers or products in a safe place (and leave the recipient a note explaining that), or leave the recipient a note informing the recipient of how to rearrange delivery or collect the flowers or other products from the local florist. If delivery is rearranged our local florists reserve the right to charge an additional delivery charge and no refund will be available if this relates to flowers or personalised goods.
If delivery is not re-arranged.

If, despite our, or the local florist’s reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection in a reasonable time, or before the flowers or other products perish the local florist may end the contract. If the flowers or other products perish before they have been delivered or collected due to a lack of contact by or an inability to contact you or the recipient due to you providing incorrect or unattainable details the local florist will not provide a refund.

You have legal rights if the local florist’s first attempt to deliver any flowers or other products is late.

we have refused to deliver the goods;
delivery within the delivery deadline was essential due to being for a funeral.
Ending the contract for late delivery.
If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under Clause 7.8 you can cancel your order for any of the flowers or other products or reject the flowers or other products that have been delivered. After that the local florist will arrange for us to refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled flowers and other products and their delivery. If the flowers or other products have been delivered to you, you must either return them in person to the local florist, post them back to the local florist or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow the local florist to collect them from you.

What will happen if you do not give required information to us.

If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. We, or the local florist, will contact you to ask for this information.
