4. TERMS OF SALE
4.1. Subscriptions; Continuous Subscriptions; Cancellation Policy
Subscriptions. We offer different subscription plans for fresh flower bouquets and seasonal wreaths (each, a “Bouquet Subscription” or “Wreath Subscription”). For more information about our Bouquet and Wreath Subscriptions, please read these Terms and our FAQs. Note that we do not currently deliver to every location, so please visit our Delivery Area page to see if we deliver to your area at http://www.clubbotanic.com/delivery-area.
Continuous Subscriptions. WHEN YOU REGISTER FOR A BOUQUET AND/OR WREATH SUBSCRIPTION, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT (A) CLUB BOTANIC (OR OUR THIRD PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR) IS AUTHORIZED TO CHARGE YOU ON A WEEKLY BASIS FOR YOUR BOUQUET AND/OR WREATH SUBSCRIPTION (IN ADDITION TO ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES) FOR AS LONG AS YOUR BOUQUET AND/OR WREATH SUBSCRIPTION CONTINUES, AND (B) YOUR BOUQUET AND/OR WREATH SUBSCRIPTION IS CONTINUOUS UNTIL YOU CANCEL IT OR WE SUSPEND OR STOP PROVIDING ACCESS TO THE SITES OR PRODUCTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS.
Cancellation Policy. YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR BOUQUET AND/OR WREATH SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME BY EMAILING US ATHELLO@CLUBBOTANIC.COM AND FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE EMAIL WE SEND YOU IN RESPONSE TO YOUR CANCELLATION REQUEST. DEPENDING ON YOUR WEEKLY CUT-OFF DATE, WHICH IS AVAILABLE ON YOUR “MY ACCOUNT” PAGE, YOUR CANCELLATION WILL BE EFFECTIVE BETWEEN FIVE (5) AND SEVEN (7) DAYS AFTER YOU COMPLETE THE CANCELLATION PROCESS. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL BOUQUET AND/OR WREATH SUBSCRIPTION CHARGES (IN ADDITION TO ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES) INCURRED BEFORE THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF YOUR CANCELLATION.
In the event you cancel your Bouquet and/or Wreath Subscription, please note that we may still send you promotional communications about Club Botanic, unless you opt out of receiving those communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided therein.
You have the ability to purchase pre-paid gift subscriptions for other people through the Sites (“Gifts”). In order to purchase a gift subscription, you are required to create an account, and during the signup process you will select a bouquet and/or wreath subscription, checking the appropriate box to indicate if this order is a gift, and the number of deliveries included in the gift order (currently, gifts are offered in 5 and 15 delivery packages). The recipient of a gift subscription will receive an email and create their own account information along with delivery frequency and preferences.
When you purchase a Gift, we will send an email to the Gift recipient that can be used to redeem the Gift. The Gift recipient will be required to create a Club Botanic account in order to access the Sites and redeem the Gift. Gifts are not refundable or redeemable for cash, unless otherwise required by applicable law. However, Gifts do not expire, and any unused balance will be placed in the Gift recipient’s Club Botanic account.
4.3. Free Trials
From time to time, we may offer free trials for specified periods of time without payment. If we offer you a free trial, the specific terms of your free trial will be provided in the marketing materials describing the particular trial or at registration.
ONCE YOUR FREE TRIAL ENDS, WE (OR OUR THIRD PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR) WILL BEGIN BILLING YOUR DESIGNATED PAYMENT METHOD ON A RECURRING BASIS FOR YOUR SUBSCRIPTION (PLUS ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES) FOR AS LONG AS YOUR SUBSCRIPTION CONTINUES, UNLESS YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PRIOR TO THE END OF YOUR FREE TRIAL. INSTRUCTIONS FOR CANCELING YOUR SUBSCRIPTION ARE DESCRIBED IN SECTIONS 4.1 AND 4.2 ABOVE. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A NOTICE FROM US THAT YOUR FREE TRIAL HAS ENDED OR THAT THE PAID PORTION OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION HAS BEGUN. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO MODIFY OR TERMINATE FREE TRIALS AT ANY TIME, WITHOUT NOTICE AND IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION.
4.4. Payment and Billing Information
By providing a credit card or other payment method that we accept, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize us (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your subscription or other purchase (including any applicable taxes and other charges) (collectively, as applicable, an “Order”). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your Order may be suspended or cancelled. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your Order. In the event you want to change or update payment information associated with your Club Botanic account, you can do so at any time by logging into your account and editing your payment information.
You acknowledge that the amount billed may vary due to promotional offers, changes to your Bouquet Subscription or changes in applicable taxes or other charges, and you authorize us (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the corresponding amount.
4.5. Pricing and Availability
All prices are shown in U.S. dollars and applicable taxes and other charges, if any, are additional. We reserve the right to adjust prices as we may determine in our sole discretion, at any time and without notice; provided, however, that if we change the amounts or other charges associated with your Bouquet Subscription, we will provide advance notice of such changes in accordance with Section 3. We will not, however, be able to notify you of changes in any applicable taxes. The shipment of bouquets to you after our delivery of such notice will confirm your acceptance of such changes, unless you cancel your subscription(s) in accordance with the cancellation policies set forth in Sections 4.1 and 4.2, as applicable.
All of our Products are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any Order, to reject all or part of an Order, to discontinue offering certain Products and to substitute Products.
We will collect applicable sales tax on products shipped to the states for which we determine we have a duty to collect sales tax. If an item is subject to sales tax, you agree that the amount of taxes shown at checkout may be adjusted. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates.
4.7. Shipping and Handling
You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown at the time you make a purchase. We reserve the right to increase, decrease, add or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time, but we will provide notice of the charges applicable to you before you make your purchase. Generally, shipping is handled by a third party courier. Actual delivery dates may vary. You agree that you will not obtain, or direct shipment of, a Product for export. All Products purchased from us are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that title to and the risk of loss of such Products passes to you upon our delivery of the Product to the third party courier.
You are responsible for inspecting all Products you receive from us for any damage or other issues upon delivery. If a shipment is received in damaged condition, please contact us as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org. Title and risk of loss for any purchases of physical products pass to you upon our delivery to our carrier. We reserve the right to ship partial orders (at no additional cost to you), and the portion of any order that is partially shipped may be charged at the time of shipment. Unless as a result of events outside of our direct control, orders of floral goods purchased by you through the Site will be delivered within the time period specified for the delivery method you have selected. All orders are shipped using a third party courier. The earliest delivery date available for an order is approximately one week from the day that payment for the order is confirmed. All deliveries are scheduled in accordance with your selected account preferences, though we cannot guarantee delivery by any specific time. We strongly encourage recipients to be at the delivery location to receive the flowers as flowers that remain outside are more likely to wilt and die.
Club Botanic offers two delivery options: (1) Indirect Signature Required, and (2) No Signature Required. Indirect Signature Required means that the recipient, or someone at the location (or at an address close by) must sign for the package to be delivered. Club Botanic strongly encourages the Indirect Signature Required option to ensure safe and fresh delivery. No Signature Required means that the delivery service will leave the package at the address whether the recipient or another person is available or not. Should a customer choose the No Signature Required option, Club Botanic cannot guarantee freshness and cannot provide replacements or refunds based on flower quality or freshness. Without the signature provided, we cannot be sure that the package was delivered at the correct time and place, or that the flowers were treated as is needed to maintain quality. If you choose the No Signature Required shipping method, then neither Club Botanic nor our third party courier can be held responsible or liable for product quality or longevity. Thus, Club Botanic strongly encourages the use of Indirect Signature Required shipping.
In the case of inclement weather or other events beyond our control that interfere with our ability to deliver your order, we will attempt to deliver your order as soon as reasonably possible. In some cases, delivery may occur prior to the scheduled delivery date. In the event that timely delivery of your Products is not feasible, we will cancel your Product delivery for the period so affected and issue you a credit or refund of the purchase price for that Product delivery.
4.9. No Resale
You are not permitted to resell or otherwise use the Products for commercial purposes.
4.10. Returns and Refunds
If you are dissatisfied with a bouquet or wreath for any reason, please contact us at email@example.com immediately and we will either replace the bouquet or wreath at our expense or, depending on the circumstances, provide you a full or partial credit or refund of the purchase price for that order. We may require the return or photographic documentation of any bouquet or wreath with which you are dissatisfied before we provide you a credit or refund. If you do not comply with the terms of this section, you will be ineligible to receive a refund.
