When you access the zFlowers.com site (a "Visit"), you are using software which is owned by or licensed to zFlowers.com. For each Visit, zFlowers.com, grants you a personal non-exclusive license to use the software associated with the site for the duration of your visit to the site. Any other use, commercial or otherwise, of the software or information on the site without the express written permission of zFlowers.com is strictly prohibited, including any reproduction, data mining, automated querying or similar data extraction processing.
What We May Do
Because we are reliant on the availability of flowers and florists in a particular geographic location and pricing from our flower and gift distribution partners, we reserve the right to amend your order in consultation with you in the event of an error by these third parties. In such circumstances additional charges may have to be paid by you and/or your order may need to be changed to meet your delivery requirements, after consultation with you.
What You Acknowledge
You acknowledge that some of the material accessible through the Service and provision of product is provided by third parties. This material does not form part of the Service, and we are not responsible for this material. Where the Service provides the facility to enter into transactions with third parties, you acknowledge that the goods or services offered by these third parties do not form part of the Service, and that we are not responsible for those third parties or the goods or services they offer. Florists and other third party providers (couriers etc.) impose different terms and conditions on the sale of specific flower and gift products featured on this site.
You should carefully read all the terms and conditions specific to the product you are ordering before finalising your transaction. You grant us an ongoing consent to use your information to promote and market our products and services and make other offers to you (including by making telemarketing calls to you, and sending you electronic messages including via email and SMS).
You acknowledge that this consent continues indefinitely until such time as you expressly withdraw it. If you do not wish us to contact you or you would like us to stop promoting and marketing products, services and other offers to you, please contact us.
You consent to us supplying your billing, payment and identification information to third parties with whom you enter into transactions using the Service. We may also provide such personal information to third parties as is required to complete your order.
You authorise our agents to disclose your credit card details to, and obtain information from, any financial institution or credit card issuer to verify the credit card and identification details that you provide. You also authorise your credit card issuer or financial institution to verify that the credit card and identification details you have provided to us are accurate. You authorise our agents to take steps to confirm that there is sufficient credit on your credit card account to meet likely charges. For any payment by credit card, orders will not be processed until authorisation has been obtained from the relevant card company. You authorise our agents to charge all fees incurred to the credit card designated by you. If payment is not received from the card issuer or its agents for any reason, you agree to pay us all amounts due on demand.
zFlowers.com reserves the right to amend charges based on additional items ordered, remote delivery, redelivery etc. Before we proceed to deliver your order, various checks are taking place to validate the integrity of credit card information and in certain circumstances the credit card holder will be required to submit verification documentation to substantiate identity.
Failure to do so promptly could lead to delay of order delivery, of which zFlowers.com will not compensate or be responsible for. The intent of this process is to reduce any potential risk for fraud. In circumstances where we cannot contact the card holder and the order period lapses thereby making the order invalid, we will have no choice but to cancel the order. Under these circumstances we accept no responsibility. We reserve the right at our absolute discretion to decline or accept orders made for any reason.
Please note, any confirmed order is subject to your credit card approval for the transaction. In an eventuality where your credit card is not approved we will attempt to contact you but hold no responsibility for any subsequent non delivery of order in the event we are unable to establish contact with you; zFlowers.com will also not be held responsible for delay of order delivery resulting from the credit card verification process. Should you choose to cancel the order at the point or after the verification of your credit card, standard cancellation and processing fees will apply.
To further protect you as the "customer", zFlowers.com cannot disclose any details pertaining to your order to any third party representative without your written consent. All enquiries (including telephone calls, emails and chat requests) must be initiated by you (the "customer"). On occasions where there is an issue with your order, zFlowers.com can only talk to you (the "customer") to rectify, clarify and come to a mutual resolution.
