Terms and Conditions

ORDERS AND CANCELATIONS

Our Contract
All orders and subscription requests received are an offer to purchase and are subject to acceptance by THE SECRET GARDEN 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. Acceptance of your offer and completion of the contract between us only takes place when we start to process your order.

Delivery Dates
As a part of the checkout process on this website, you will be able to select the date for delivery of your first order, 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). We will make every effort to satisfy your selection, but this cannot be guaranteed.

Changes to your order
If you wish to alter your order or subscription, please contact the Customer Service Team at info@secretgarden.gr. We’ll always do our best to make last-minute changes for you, but we can only guarantee changes (including the delivery address and gift card message) no later than 24 business hours prior to your order going out.

Your cancellation rights
You can cancel single orders not later than 24 business hours prior to the requested delivery date. In those circumstances, a full refund will be given. If a lesser period of notice is given, we will only give a refund if we have not ordered the flowers needed for your order or if we have not started preparation of your order at the time notice is given. We cannot accept cancellations for Next Day or Same Day orders.

Suspending or cancelling your subscription
If you wish to change your subscription, please contact our Customer Service team at info@secretgarden.gr. You can suspend or cancel a subscription at any time by giving no less than 24  hours notice before any nominated delivery date within your subscription plan. Provided you have given us the specified notice, the suspension or cancellation will take effect without charge. In such circumstances, if your card has already been billed we will issue a full refund. Where notice is received after that time and we have been unable to make the requested changes, please note you will still receive and be charged for your next delivery (as we will have already started cutting your flowers), but your suspension instruction will only take effect for the number of times you select unless a cancellation request is received.

Subscription prices
The price for each order within a subscription is the price at the time that a subscription is set up. 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 give our subscribers not less than 7 days notice before their next delivery and provide the option to cancel your subscription free of charge. If we receive no contact from you 24 business hours prior to your requested delivery date, we will assume that the changes are accepted by you and your order will proceed as amended.

Payment Methods
We accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard credit and debit cards.

For all subscriptions, your credit or debit card will be billed at checkout for your full month subscription. For subsequent deliveries, you will be billed on a recurring basis every week during 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 subject to any changes previously notified to you as above.

If you receive flowers that do not seem fresh or are damaged, please contact our Customer Service team at info@secretgarden.gr 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 refund.

If we offer you a refund, we will refund you the full amount within 3 business days. Please note that banks might take an additional 3-5 days to refund the amount to your card. This is without prejudice to your statutory rights in respect of damaged, defective or incorrectly supplied goods.
