§2 Conclusion of contract

- The photos in the online shop is an example only and does not represent the actual delivery. To see the Bunch of the Week and what flowers will constitute in your delivery, A Bunch of Kindness puts up in its social media channels, every Monday (unless a public holiday then the following working day), the Bunch of the Week which should give an idea of which flowers might constitute in the delivery of the said week. The flower colours, sizes, and types are subjected to change unless otherwise agreed specifically in writing.
- Occasionally, the flowers in the bunch featured for sale may be substituted with alternative flower types if stock runs low during the day. However, our team will make sure that this substituted bunch resembles the featured bunch as closely as possible. If it results in a dramatically different style, then the sender will be notified.
- If you choose to send on a later date you accept that you will not see the combination of flowers until the day of delivery, when it will be too late to change your order.
- If you have entered into a subscription arrangement to receive flowers on a regular basis (weekly, fortnightly or monthly) you agree that your subscription will continue until such time as it is cancelled by you. If you wish to cancel your subscription you must do so prior to the next payment renewal. If we encounter any supply issues we will inform the sender immediately and give them the option of either a full refund or resending their flowers on an alternative day

- If a delivery has been attempted unsuccessfully and requires a second or subsequent delivery to be made (e.g. You have provided us with an incorrect address or no one is home during your selected delivery time and there is no safe place to leave the order) a redelivery fee will apply relevant to the delivery area.
