Our terms and conditions can be read here:
1. Changes in the details of your Order:
If you wish to modify your order, please dial this number: +359(886) 856777 or send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org Take into consideration that any change in your order (delivery address, card message, and others) should be done from 12 to 21 hours the day before the delivery.
When the delivery is for Mondays any change in your order should be done on Saturday from 12 to 14 hours (GT+2), to assure there is enough time to modify the order before it is sent. We cannot always guarantee any modification on time.
Clients are responsible for the information they give when they place the order. If the address is not correct, Theworldflowers is not responsible in case the order could not be delivered.
Within normal circumstances, your order will be delivered to the address and requested date, as you filled and specified in the form: Recipient Data. However, sometimes this is not possible due to the information provided, or due to problems our deliverers face when accomplishing the order. That is why, it is very important to assure that the recipient address is accurate, in particular, the street and door number, the zip code and telephone number. If it is possible give special instructions to help our deliverers find difficult addresses.
In the event that the recipient is not at his / her residence, flowers will be left to a responsible person at the delivery address or a note will be left under the door, explaining the availability of the product at our local florist (address and phone number will be left in case the recipient wishes to pick up the flowers). Moreover, it is important to consider that flowers are not an ever lasting product, so the recipient will have to look for the floral arrangement within the term of two days after the note was left.
In the event that our client wishes that the floral arrangement was delivered for a second opportunity to the recipient address, we will be willing to satisfied your desire, but a payment link will be sent due to additional costs in the delivery.
It is also important to keep us informed if any mistake is detected in the recipient address or if the client knows in advanced that the recipient might not be at his/her residence at the requested delivery time. (See item 1 about terms and conditions).
When the customer finishes placing the order through our web site an email will be automatically sent to his/her email account. The client must keep that email as an evidence of his/her purchase, in which all the key information related to his/her order is specified.
It is very important to check there are no mistakes in the entered data. If we are given an incorrect address and the flowers went out to be delivered before the costumer notifies the mistake, automatically he/she is not entitled to claim for the remittance of a new product. In the case the flowers are irrecoverable; it is possible to consider the remittance of another floral arrangement subjected to our evaluation for that specific situation.
If the customer is not sure about the address of the recipient we recommend to get in touch with him/her to check the information and to clear it up in special instructions at the moment of entering the data.
In the case of deliveries at places in which a third person is involved, like: hospitals, funerals, hotels; it has to be accepted the authorized signature of a member of the organization as an evidence that flowers were delivered to the destination requested.
2.2 In hospitals
Deliveries at hospitals sometimes can be troublesome, since patients are transferred from ward to ward frequently or they are in intensive care units, or they have been already released from hospitals. It means that there are times in which we are not able of delivering the order of our costumers in a very special moment. Nevertheless, this can be avoided just guarantying the accurate and up-dated data; that is to say, name of the institution, ward, and patient’s name.
It is extremely important to know the full name of the recipient, since there can be more than one patients with the same name at the same hospital. This can lead to mistakes that are out of our control at the moment of the deliveries.
Many hospitals don’t allow deliverers taking the flowers straight to the wards due to health and security policies. In these cases the flowers will be left at the reception.
Some hospitals do not allow patients to have flowers in the wards; that is why it is convenient to check if the patient you wish to send the flowers is allowed to have them.
If flowers are not accepted in the wards we cannot refund the cost of the floral arrangement. Some hospitals do not accept flowers for patients or members of the staff, which is why it is important to check if the hospital is in the disposition of accepting flowers. If the hospital does not accept the flowers we cannot refund the cost.
2.3 In funerals
It is important to know if the flowers are for a funeral or sympathy, selecting the special occasion or specifying in “special instructions” at the moment of entering data of the delivery destination. This will enable us to have special care with your order and will help in the procedure to make sure the delivery gets correctly to the specified location.
The cards message that accompany the floral homage for funerals or cremations are hand- written, that is why we are not in conditions of offering a text with a special format. If the flowers are for a funeral, we recommend you to place the order as soon as possible; at least a day before the funeral, to guarantee that not contemplated inconveniences interfere in the delivery of the floral arrangement to the funeral at the indicated time.
If the flowers go to a wake room, it is essential that you indicate the name of the dead person as well as the funeral parlor. If these details are not clear, it might lead to delays on the delivery and cause potential inconveniences at the moment of delivering the order as such. If any of these situations impede the order to be accepted or the delivery cannot be done, we will not be in conditions of refunding the cost of your purchase.
2.4 At hotels
With pleasure we take orders to be delivered at hotels. Nevertheless, when making it, please make yourself sure you have included the following details:
Full name and address of the hotel, hotel phone number, room number, recipients name as booked at the hotel.
Another important detail, is to indicate: if the recipient is a guest or a staff member of the hotel.
If these data are not correct, there might be delays in the delivery and inconveniences at the moment of delivering. If any of these situations impedes the order to be accepted or the delivery to be done as such, we will not be in conditions of refunding the cost of the flowers.
2.5 Non-delivered orders

-A re-send in the next available date.
-A total or partial refund of your money. (The percentage will depend on the circumstances)
We do not offer the two choices simultaneously.
When the flowers were damaged we will ask for devolution or a picture clearly showing the problem to determine what went wrong and which was the deficiency in our system; then if necessary, we can claim to our associated florists and take corrective actions. It is essential for us to be contacted immediately concerning the situation mentioned.

If we were to take a decision, will let the client know about it. In a written e-mail or by phone call. It is important to emphasize that this guarantee does not mean an automatically refund of 100% of your money, but a fair resolution.

In rare occasions, little human mistakes may occur (for example the card message gets lost). In this kind of circumstances we will do our best to solve the situation. We will consider to our judgment, to offer a partial refund of the money or a discount for future purchases; but we will not guarantee will always do it. We believe we are fair in making decisions and upon that, we solve these kind of situations. In these cases we will not offer a refund of a 100% of your money, since the recipient has already received a great value and quality in what flowers are concerned.
6. Life and conditions of the flowers.
Our flowers are always fresh and they must last some days in a vase with water, though this may vary depending on the specie. It is important the special care flowers received after the delivery.
