Privacy Policy (Terms & Conditions)

Terms And Conditions

IF YOU’RE NOT HAPPY FOR ANY REASON JUST LET US KNOW AND WE’LL SEND A REPLACEMENT BOUQUET OR OFFER A REFUND.

By placing an order on this website, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions:

1. ORDERS AND CANCELLATIONS

  1. Order Acceptance Policy

All orders and subscription requests received are subject to acceptance by Wild daisies (OPC) private Limited ("Shades of Spring") and Shades of Spring, 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, either via primary payment method used to place the order or any other mode of payment.

  1. Timing of your order

As a part of the checkout process you will be able to select the delivery date for your first order delivery (as per availability), 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).

  1. Changes to your order

If you wish to change your order or subscription, please cancel the current subscription via the "Order" area of the Shades of Spring website or by contacting Customer Delight at hello@shadesofspring.in. 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) that are requested by 12pm the day before the intended delivery date. At peak periods we begin processing orders earlier than usual, to account for the large volume of deliveries. This means that we may need up to 4 days notice for any changes to be made.

  1. Cancellation policy

One-off orders can be cancelled by 11:59am the day before the intended delivery date and a full refund will be issued. The easiest way to cancel your order is via the "Orders" area of the Shades of Spring website. You can also cancel by contacting Customer Delight at hello@shadesofsprinf.in. At peak periods we begin processing orders earlier than usual, to account for the large volume of deliveries. This means that we may need up to 4 days notice for any changes to be made.

  1. Pausing or cancelling your subscription

If you wish to change your subscription, please do so via the "Orders" area of the Shades of Spring website. You can pause or cancel a subscription at any time by providing notice to us by 11:59am the day before any intended delivery within your subscription plan. In such circumstances the pause or cancellation will take effect. In such circumstances, if your card has already been billed (see paragraph 2.2 for billing timings), we will issue a full refund. Where notice is provided after that time, please note you will still receive and be charged for your next delivery (as we will have already started cutting your flowers), but your pause or cancellation instruction will take effect after that delivery. At peak periods we begin processing orders earlier than usual, to account for the large volume of deliveries. This means that we may need up to 4 days notice for any changes to be made.

 

  1. Subscription prices

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 notify our subscribers and provide the option to cancel your subscription free of charge.

2. PAYMENTS

  1. We accept American Express, Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards as well as Paytm. 
  2. For subscriptions, your credit or debit card will be billed at checkout upfront and you can manage delivery by pause and resume feature in the order section.

  4. If you create an account and enter your payment details, your card will be stored securely by our payment partner so that you can check out on future visits without re-entering your card details.
  5. We never store or have access to your credit or debit card details.

3. PRICES

We are unable to provide refunds for any deliveries sent to the wrong location where we have not received advance notice in accordance with this paragraph.

This means that we may need up to 4 days notice for any changes to be made.
  12. We reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to cancel your subscription if it becomes apparent to us that the courier service in your area is too unreliable. We value our customers and our ability to deliver, so where we can't, we won't risk disappointing you.

5. OUR PROMISE, RETURNS AND REFUNDS

  1. We aim to delight our customers by delivering fresh flowers, in great condition, on time.
  2. Freshness

Our flowers are occasionally sent out in bud form meaning they will last longer with the recipient. If you receive flowers that do not seem fresh, please contact Customer Delight at hello@shadesofspring.in to let us know. If, at our sole discretion, the flowers do not meet our high freshness standards, we will give you the choice of a free replacement at our next available delivery date, or a refund. Please note that you will need to email us a photo of the un-fresh flowers within 48 hours of receipt in order to be eligible for a refund. If we offer you a refund, we will refund you the full amount within 5 days. Please note that banks might take an additional 3-5 days to refund the amount to your card.

  1. Damage

While our flowers are packed carefully to ensure they arrive as fresh and beautiful as when they left us, on a small number of occasions (and for reasons beyond our control) they may get damaged in transit. Should this occur to a level that you deem unacceptable, please contact us so that we can arrange a free replacement at our next available delivery date, or a refund. Please note that you will need to email us a photo of the damaged flowers in question within 48 hours of receipt of the flowers in order to be eligible for a refund. If we offer you a refund, we will refund you the full amount within 5 days. Please note that banks might take an additional 3-5 days to refund the amount to your card.

  1. Non Delivery

While we do everything we can to make sure our flowers are delivered, sometimes mistakes do happen and deliveries don't turn up. If we fail to deliver your order (i.e. if your flowers have not arrived within 3 days of their intended delivery date) we will send you a free replacement on our next available delivery date, or a refund. If we offer you a refund, we will refund you the full amount within 5 days. Please note that banks might take an additional 3-5 days to refund the amount on your card.

  1. Returns

Please understand that due to the perishable nature of flowers, we are unable to accept returns. We offer customers refunds or replacement flowers if the flowers are not delivered to an acceptable quality, as detailed above.

  1. Flower availability and substitution

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.

6. OFFERS AND PROMOTION CODES

  2. In the event that a customer has made a purchase and the price of the purchased product subsequently falls or is discounted owing to a special offer, the price of the product at the time of purchase shall prevail.
