1. ORDERS AND CANCELLATIONS
1.1 Order Acceptance Policy. In order to place an order we require your name, email address, payment details and the details of the order. You do not need to create an account with us, but we will store the details of your order on our systems in order to process this, and full details of how and where your data is stored can be found in our privacy statement. Once an order has been successfully placed and accepted we'll send you an order confirmation email to the email address entered during the checkout process. If you do not receive this email, please contact us at email@example.com who can check that the order has gone through and ensure you receive the confirmation email. All orders and subscription requests received are subject to acceptance by Wreath Studio Limited ("Wreath Studio"), 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, via the payment method used to place the order.
1.2 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, 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). Some delivery options are not guaranteed but this will be detailed when you select the option and in a confirmation email.
1.3 Changes to your order. If you wish to change your order or subscription, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 72 hours before the intended delivery date. At peak periods (see paragraph 1.4 for the meaning of 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 7 days notice for any changes to be made.
1.4 Cancellation policy. One-off orders can be cancelled 72 hours before the intended delivery date and a full refund will be issued. The easiest way to cancel your order is via the "My Account" area of the Wreath Studio website. You can also cancel by contacting us through Whatsapp directly. 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 10 days notice for any changes to be made. “Peak periods” are defined as the 15-day period leading up to and including Christmas Day, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Easter Sunday. Ongoing or Fixed/Pre-paid Subscriptions can be cancelled within 7 days of the placing of the order and refunded in full (except in relation to any deliveries which have either already been made or related to which the timing of the cancellation and the timing of the next delivery are not within the timeframes related to one-off orders described above).
1.5 Pausing or cancelling your subscription. If you wish to change your subscription, please contact us directly. You can pause or cancel a subscription at any time by providing notice to us by 72 hours before any intended delivery within your subscription plan. In such circumstances the pause will take effect without charge. In such circumstances, if your card has already been billed (see paragraph 2.2 for billing timings), we will issue a refund for subscription cancellation. A handling fee of HK$50 will be applied. 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 7 days notice for any changes to be made. Our subscriptions are intended to be ongoing with multiple deliveries, and whilst you are welcome to pause or cancel at any time, we reserve the right to cancel subscriptions if we consider this is being abused.
1.6 Subscription prices. The price for each order within a subscription is the price at the time that a subscription is set up, minus any promotion code which only apply to the first delivery. 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.
2.1 We accept Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards as well as PayMe, Apply Pay, and direct bank transfer. In order to offer the best security, all our payments are processed securely by Stripe or, if selected as a payment option, PayMe.
2.2 For all ongoing subscriptions, your credit or debit card will be billed at checkout for your first delivery only. For ongoing deliveries, you will be billed on a recurring basis every week in which a delivery is scheduled. The amount your card will be billed in any given week will be the value of your order(s) for the given week.
2.3 For all gift bundles, your credit or debit card will be billed upfront on checkout for the entire cost of the subscription.
2.4 If you create an account and enter your payment details, your card or Paypal details will be stored securely by Stripe so that you can check out on future visits without re-entering your card details.

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. Please note that 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 10 days notice for any changes to be made.
4.14 We reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to cancel your subscription if it becomes apparent to us that the postal or 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. In such circumstances, if your card has already been billed for a delivery that will no longer be fulfilled (see paragraph 2.2 for billing timings), we will issue a full refund.
5. OUR PROMISE, RETURNS AND REFUNDS
