Opening Statements Terms & Conditions

TERMS OF SERVICE  

PLACING YOUR ORDER

1.1 When you submit your order by clicking on the ['Place My Order'] button or by calling our customer services team, you are consenting to be bound by our terms and conditions contained in these Terms and Conditions and appearing elsewhere on the Opening Statements Website.

1.2 Your order to us is an offer which we may or may not accept and we will not be bound by a contract with you until and unless, we have received from you all the payment details we require for the goods ordered by you, your payment to us has been authorised by your card issuer and we have issued an email acknowledging your order. Your order will not be processed if full payment details are not received by us.

1.3 Orders placed on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays will be treated as having been received on the following working day.

1.4 An order will be acknowledged via e-mail confirming your details, provided you have supplied us with a correct e-mail address, which is most important. Our e-mail will provide an order reference number for any future correspondence. All prices and charges will be calculated of those ruling at the time at which you place your order.

1.5 For your order to be processed and delivered on the requested date, you must supply us with all the relevant details we request, including full delivery details, postcode and telephone number.

1.6 At our discretion from time to time, we may offer products at discounted prices. These offers are valid from the time that we introduce them to the end date of the offer and they cannot be used for purchases before the offer introduction date or after the offer end date.

1.7 In the event that you have made a purchase and the price of a product falls or is discounted due to a special offer, the price of the product at the time of purchase shall 'prevail'. We are unable to offer special offer discounts for purchases that have already been made. As our special offers are often made available due to the availability of products, we may change the terms of special offers, or withdraw them altogether, at any time and without prior notice. We also reserve the right to offer different personalised special offers and promotions and it will therefore only be possible for the customer in receipt of the special offer to redeem the discount.

PAYMENT

2.1 Payment may be made by any of the methods indicated on the payment page of the Website and will be debited when you submit your order.

2.2 Occasionally credit cards that are entered correctly and have sufficient funds are not validated because the card issuer is performing a random security check. In these cases, we will need to take payment over the phone. We will email or call you in these circumstances. If you receive a message to tell you that payment has not been validated, please contact us on +44 (0)20 7458 4528 immediately to ensure your order can be attended to.

2.3 Due to time differences, payments made out of office hours, or problems getting hold of you via the contact details you have provided, we are sometimes unable to process a valid payment prior to the requested delivery date. If this is the case, once we have received payment, we will dispatch the goods ordered as soon as we can to minimise any further delay. Although this delay is regrettable, it is outside our control and therefore we cannot offer any form of refund in these circumstances.


CHANGES & CANCELLATIONS

3.1 If you wish to make any changes to your order please call us on +44(0)20 7458 4528. Please note that any changes to your order (delivery address, gift message) must be made at least 2 working days prior to delivery to ensure that we have time to amend the order prior to dispatch. We cannot guarantee to accept changes made to your order after that time. Any change to your order may affect the price to be paid by you and our acceptance of your requested change will then be subject to any additional price or charge being received by us

3.2 Only requests for cancellations that are made at least 2 working days before the intended delivery date will be considered by us. Although we will usually accept such a cancellation we do not guarantee to do so on every occasion. Where a requested cancellation is received by us on a Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holiday it will be treated as having been received on the following working day. To request order cancellation, please call +44 (0)20 7458 4528.


DELIVERY

4.1 A recipient signature will be required for deliveries.

Should the recipient be away at the time of delivery, a card will be left stating attempted delivery was made.


AVAILABILITY

5.1 All products are subject to availability, and acceptance of your order. In the event of any supply difficulties or if the products we have received from our suppliers that are needed to make up your order do not meet our high quality standards, we reserve the right to substitute an alternate product of a similar style and equivalent (or greater) value and quality. Flowers may be delivered in bud to ensure longer life.

5.2 Where substitution of goods is necessary, we will try to contact you. If you wish to discuss the substitution we have made, please contact us. If we are unable to contact you via the contact methods provided prior to the time that we make up your order, we will assume that you accept the substitution.


FORCE MAJEURE

6.1 Neither we, nor any courier or postal service that we use shall be liable for any failure or delay in performance where such failure or delay results from any circumstances outside our reasonable control, including, but not limited to, any fire, flood, explosion, accident, adverse weather conditions, traffic congestion, mechanical breakdown, obstruction of any private or public highway, riot, government act, act of war, terrorism, act of God, or from any industrial dispute or strike whatsoever.


YOUR MESSAGES

7.1 You must agree that any messages provided by you to be sent by us on your behalf to a third party will not contain anything which could be construed as harassing, threatening, vulgar, abusive, obscene, defamatory, racist or which may cause embarrassment or distress to any person or are otherwise unlawful or objectionable.

7.2 You are entirely responsible for any such message and we accept no liability whatsoever for any such content. We do not routinely screen messages, but may monitor content from time to time.

DEALING WITH PROBLEMS

9.1 Although we do our best to ensure that this does not happen, on rare occasions, goods arrive at their destination damaged. If the recipient receives damaged goods, please contact us immediately so that we can arrange a replacement for the next available delivery date.

9.2 In order for us to resolve any complaints quickly and to our mutual satisfaction, and in view of the nature of the goods we deal in, we request that you make any complaint within 1 day of the date of delivery or intended delivery of your purchase.

9.3 Because of their perishable nature, flowers are non-returnable. This does not affect your statutory rights. If you are not completely satisfied with the goods we supply please call us on +44 (0)20 7458 4528 from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, quoting your order reference number or email us on info@openingstatements.co.uk.
