OUR REFUNDS AND RETURNS POLICY

If you receive flowers that do not seem fresh or are damaged, please contact Customer Care at hello@studiumonflowers.com to let us know.

 

If the flowers do not meet our own high standards, we will give you the choice of a free replacement at our next available delivery date, or a full refund. Please note that you will need to email us a photo (evidencing the date and time when it was taken) of the un-fresh or damaged flowers, within 12 hours of their receipt, in order to be eligible for a refund or replacement.

 

Returns of flowers

Please understand that due to the perishable nature of flowers, we are unable to accept returns on these Products.

Whilst we will do our utmost to ensure that the STUDIUM Services are uninterrupted and error-free we cannot guarantee this and, therefore, accept no responsibility for any interruption of the STUDIUM Services and shall be released from our obligations under these terms and conditions and/or any Contract in the event of any cause which renders the provision of the STUDIUM Services impossible or impractical, except where our liability cannot be limited by effect of law.

STUDIUM will not be responsible for any direct or indirect or consequential losses or damages, including loss of profits, that (i) were not caused by any breach on our part, including those cause by your breach or failure to comply with the provisions of these terms and conditions and/or any Contract in force between us, or (ii) were not foreseeable to both you and us upon the conclusion of any relevant Contract between us.

Personal Data we collect as you use our Services

We collect your technical and usage data, as described above, as you use our Services. Some of this data is collected using cookies, beacons and similar technologies.

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive.

HOW AND WHY DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We will only use your Personal Data where:

a) We need the Personal Data to fulfil our contract with you.

If we have entered into a contract to provide you with our Services (signed up for a subscription), we will need your Personal Data in order to do so. The Personal Data that we use will depend on the Service(s) we have agreed. For example:

We will use your identity and contact details so that we can communicate with you about the Services we provide, to facilitate providing any Services you have requested (for example, to create an online account, make a delivery), and to respond to any requests, queries, issues or concerns you may have.

We will use your technical information to ensure that our Services display and function correctly on your device.

We (and our service providers) will need your payment information to facilitate any payments you authorize. For further information about this, please see the “How we share your data” Section below.

We may also use any or all of the information above to administer and manage our business in general, to detect and prevent misuse of our Services, and to enforce our terms and conditions or any other contract to which we may be a party. If you feel that your interests and fundamental rights outweigh our business purposes, and that we should therefore stop processing your Personal Data, please let us know.

c) You have given us your consent.

If you sign up to our mailing lists, we will send you updates and marketing information that you have consented to receive. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send, or by emailing us at contact@studiumonflowers.com.

HOW DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA AND SECURE?

We are committed to ensuring that your Personal Data is secure in order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, and we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure your Personal Data.

To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Data, the purposes for which we process your Personal Data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Cookies

How we use cookies

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better Website, by enabling us to remember settings so that you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you visit a new page; monitoring which pages you find useful and which you do not; displaying information on a website in a way that matches your interests; and remembering key information such as your postcode so that you do not have to enter it repeatedly.

A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most major websites use cookies and most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.
