The Site may contain links to websites operated by other parties. BTB provides these links to 

other websites as a convenience, and use of those sites is at your own risk. The linked sites are 

not under the control of BTB, and BTB is not responsible for the content available on the other 

sites. Such links do not imply BTB’ endorsement of information or material on any other site and 

BTB disclaims all liability with regard to your access to and use of such linked websites.

7. FEES AND PAYMENTS

7.1. PAYMENTS.

You acknowledge and agree that all information you provide with regards to a purchase, 

including, without limitation, credit card, PayPal, or other payment information, is accurate, 

current and complete. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use the 

payment method you provide to us or our payment processor, including, without limitation, any 

credit card you provide when completing a transaction. We reserve the right, with or without 

prior notice, to (i) discontinue or limit the available quantity of any product or aspect of the Site, 

(ii) honor, or impose conditions on the honoring of, any coupon, coupon code, promotional code 

or other similar promotions; and (iii) refuse to allow any user to purchase a product or deliver 

any product to a user. When you purchase products through the Site, you (a) agree to pay the 

price for such products set forth in the Site, all shipping and handling charges and all applicable 

taxes in connection with your purchase (the ‚ÄúFull Purchase Amount‚ÄĚ) and (b) authorize BTB to¬†

charge your credit card or other payment method for the Full Purchase Amount. Unless 

otherwise noted, all currency references are in U.S. dollars. All fees and charges are payable in 

accordance with payment terms in effect at the time the fee or the charge becomes payable.

Payment can be made by credit card, debit card, or through PayPal. Orders will not be 

processed until payment has been received in full, and any holds on your account by PayPal or 

any other payment processor (including Authorize.net) are solely your responsibility.

If you purchase a subscription for repeated deliveries, then you hereby authorize BTB to bill 

your credit card for the amounts and at the intervals described on our Site (or at approximately 

those intervals, to accommodate for holidays and other irregularities), until the end of the 

subscription period, or indefinitely if you decide to purchase an open-ended subscription. In 

cases where your credit card expires, is cancelled, is over the limit, or is otherwise declined for 

any reason, we will not continue to deliver flower arrangements or renew your subscription, 

though we may, but are not obligated to, contact you to notify you of the issue.

7.2. DISCOUNTS.

BTB provides a discount for referrals, as well as a discount for subscription plans. These 

promotions may be altered by information published on our Site, and if any information is 

conflicting, the terms most beneficial to BTB shall prevail and take effect. BTB may refuse to 

provide such discounts for any reason including, but not limited to, fraud, mistake on the part of 

our publication of information, actual or expected financial hardship, sale of all or part of our 

business, or any other reason at BTB’ sole discretion. Discounts, Promotions, and Store Credits 

of any kind may not be combined unless at the sole discretion of BTB Company. Discounts or 

other financial benefits given in reward for referring other users to us may be considered a 

taxable benefit by any revenue agency having jurisdiction over you, which you are solely 

responsible for, and you should consult an accountant and/or tax attorney in your jurisdiction to 

determine your tax liabilities incurred as a result of participating in our referral program.  Should 

a user abuse the referral program through fraudulent activities such as referring oneself, 

creating multiple accounts or other such tactics which constitute theft and/or fraud, BTB 

Company may notify the authorities and you may be prosecuted.  BTB Company reserves the 

right to charge any payment method on file the full retail price of all deliveries under any account 

deemed to be fraudulent, and these charges may include any amounts previously discounted in 

a previous promotion.

If a subscription plan is cancelled after only 1 delivery BTB may charge a $5 cancellation fee.

7.3. RETURN AND REFUND POLICY.

Except as provided for replacement flower arrangements below, there are no refunds or returns 

for the floral goods purchased on the Site. All sales are final. You may receive a replacement 

flower arrangement only if: (1) you complete a request form at www.nectarflowers.com/contact 

within three calendar days of the delivery date, (2) the wrong item was delivered, or if the flower 

arrangement arrives in substandard condition, or if the flower arrangement is delivered after the 

delivery date or never delivered at all, and (3) if the flower arrangement arrived in substandard 

condition, then (i) a photograph of the flower arrangement must be attached to the customer 

service request at www.thebouqs.com/en/contact-us, and (ii) you must have chosen the 

‚ÄúIndirect Signature Required‚ÄĚ delivery method, and (iii) someone must have been present to¬†

take delivery of the flower arrangement upon arrival, as indicated by the carrier. Replacement 

flower arrangements cannot be transferred for value or redeemed for cash.

7.4. CHANGES TO PRODUCTS AND PRICING.

BTB may, at any time, revise or change the pricing, availability, specifications, content, 

descriptions or features of any products sold through the Site. The inclusion of any products 

through the Site at a particular time does not imply or warrant that these products will be 

available at any other time. BTB reserves the right to change prices for products displayed on 

the Site, or the Site, at any time, and to correct pricing errors that may inadvertently occur. All 

such changes shall be effective immediately upon posting of such new product prices to the 

Site.

7.5. ORDER ACCEPTANCE/CONFIRMATION.

Once we receive your order, we’ll provide you with an email order confirmation. Your receipt of 

an order confirmation, however, does not signify BTB’ acceptance of your order, nor does it 

constitute confirmation of our offer to sell; we are simply confirming that we received your order. 

BTB reserves the right at any time after receiving your order to accept or decline your order for 

any reason. If BTB cancels an order after you have already been billed, then BTB will refund the 

billed amount.

7.6. SHIPMENT OF PRODUCTS.

Title and risk of loss for any purchases of physical products pass to you upon our delivery to our 

carrier, FedEx. We reserve the right to ship partial orders (at no additional cost to you), and the 

portion of any order that is partially shipped may be charged at the time of shipment. Unless as 

a result of events outside of our direct control, orders of floral goods purchased by you through 

the Site will be delivered within the time period specified for the delivery method you have 

selected. All orders are shipped using FedEx or another a third party courier. The earliest 

delivery date available for an order is approximately one week from the day that payment for the 

order is confirmed. Shipping is not available for delivery on Saturdays, Sundays or Mondays. 

Online tracking is available at FedEx’s website, though we make no warranties regarding its 

availability because it is not under our control. All deliveries are scheduled for a 10:30am arrival, 

though we cannot guarantee delivery by any specific time. We strongly encourage recipients to 

be at the delivery location to receive the flowers as flowers that remain outside are more likely to 

wilt and die.

BTB offer two delivery options: (1) Indirect Signature Required, and (2) No Signature Required. 

Indirect Signature Required means that the recipient, or someone at the location (or at an 

address close by) must sign for the package to be delivered. BTB strongly encourages the 

Indirect Signature Required option to ensure safe and fresh delivery.

No Signature Required means that FedEx will leave the package at the address whether the 

recipient or another person is available or not. Should a customer choose the No Signature 

Required option, BTB cannot guarantee freshness and cannot provide replacements or refunds 

based on flower quality or freshness. Without the signature provided, we cannot be sure that the 

package was delivered at the correct time and place, or that the flowers were treated as is 

needed to maintain quality. If you choose the No Signature Required shipping method, then 

neither BTB nor FedEx can be held responsible or liable for product quality or longevity. Thus, 

BTB strongly encourages the use of Indirect Signature Required shipping.

Shipment is free for customers who have registered an Account with us for deliveries Monday 

through Friday. For customers without an Account a shipping fee is charged per product.

7.7. NO DELIVERY TO CHILDREN.

In furtherance of BTB’ policy of not collecting personal information from children under the age 

of 13, users are not allowed to give BTB the personal information of any children under the age 

of 13 for delivery or shipping purposes or any other reason.

7.8. TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS.

In the event a product is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to 

typographical error or error in pricing or product information received from our suppliers, we 

shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for the product listed at the incorrect 

price. We shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has 

been confirmed and your credit card or PayPal account charged. If your credit card or PayPal 

account has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we shall 

immediately issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge.

8. LOCATION

The Site is operated by BTB in Canada. Those who choose to access the Site from locations 

outside Canada do so at their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable 

local laws.

state and federal courts located in Ottawa, Ontario, and you agree to submit to the personal 

jurisdiction and venue of such courts. You are responsible for compliance with all local laws if

13. BINDING ARBITRATION

(a) Arbitration Procedures. You and BTB agree that, except as provided in Section (d) below, all 

disputes, controversies and claims related to this Agreement (each a ‚ÄúClaim‚ÄĚ), shall be finally¬†

and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration, which may be initiated by either party by sending 

a written notice requesting arbitration to the other party. Any election to arbitrate by one party 

shall be final and binding on the other. The arbitration will be conducted under the Streamlined 

Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated 

(the ‚ÄúJAMS Rules‚ÄĚ) and under the terms set forth in this Agreement. In the event of a conflict¬†

between the terms set forth in this Binding Arbitration Section and the JAMS Rules, the terms in 

this Binding Arbitration Section will control and prevail.

Except as otherwise set forth in Section (d) below, you may seek any remedies available to you 

under federal, state or local laws in an arbitration action. As part of the arbitration, both you and 

we will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the 

Claim. The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator’s decision regarding the 

Claim, the award given and the arbitrator’s findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator’s 

decision is based. The determination of whether a Claim is subject to arbitration shall be 

governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. 

Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, (i) you and BTB may litigate in court to compel 

arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment 

on the award entered by the arbitrator; and (ii) the arbitrator’s decision shall be final, binding on 

all parties and enforceable in any court that has jurisdiction, provided that any award may be 

challenged if the arbitrator fails to follow applicable law.

BY AGREEING TO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND 

BTB WAIVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.

(b) Location. The arbitration will be conducted in Ottawa, Ontario, unless the parties agree to 

video, phone and/or internet connection appearances.

(c) Limitations. You and BTB agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Claim between 

BTB and you individually. YOU AND BTB AGREE THAT (A) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR 

AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO 

UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES; (B) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR 

ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS 

A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL; AND (C) NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH 

ANY OTHER ARBITRATION.

(d) Exceptions to Arbitration. You and BTB agree that the following Claims are not subject to the 

above provisions concerning negotiations and binding arbitration: (i) any Claim seeking to 

enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or BTB’ intellectual property rights; 

(ii) any Claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or 

unauthorized use; and (iii) any claim for equitable relief. In addition to the foregoing, either party 

may assert an individual action in small claims court for Claims that are within the scope of such 

court’s jurisdiction in lieu of arbitration.

(e) Arbitration Fees. If you initiate arbitration for a Claim, you will need to pay the JAMS 

arbitration initiation fee. If we are initiating arbitration for a Claim, we will pay all costs charged 

by JAMS for initiating the arbitration. All other fees and costs of the arbitration will be charged 

pursuant to the JAMS Rules.

(f) Severability. You and BTB agree that if any portion this Section is found illegal or 

unenforceable (except any portion of Section (d)), that portion shall be severed and the 

remainder of the Section shall be given full force and effect. If Section (d) is found to be illegal or 

unenforceable, then neither you nor BTB will elect to arbitrate any Claim falling within that 

portion of Section (d) found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Claim shall be exclusively 

decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the County of Los Angeles, State of 

California, United States of America, and you and BTB agree to submit to the personal 

jurisdiction of that court.

14. TERM AND TERMINATION

This Agreement is effective until terminated. BTB may terminate this Agreement with or without 

notice for any reason, or for no reason. You may terminate this agreement by discontinuing your 

use of the Site and notifying BTB in writing.

15. GENERAL

Agreement Revisions. This Agreement may only be revised in writing by BTB, or published by 

BTB on the Site.

Force Majeure. BTB shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes 

outside the reasonable control of BTB, including without limitation any failure to perform 

hereunder due to unforeseen circumstances or cause beyond BTB’ control such as acts of God, 

war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, 

strikes, or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor, or materials.

No Partnership. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency 

relationship exists between you and BTB as a result of this Agreement or your use of the Site.

time with or without your consent. You may not assign the Agreement without BTB’ prior written 

consent, and any unauthorized assignment by you shall be null and void.

then that portion shall be severed, and the remainder of the Agreement shall be given full force 

and effect.

Agreement, the prevailing party in such litigation shall be entitled to recover from the other party 

all the reasonable costs, attorneys’ fees and other expenses incurred by such prevailing party in 

the litigation.

No Waiver. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall in no way be construed 

to be a present or future waiver of such provision, nor in any way affect the right of any party to 

enforce each and every such provision thereafter. The express waiver by us of any provision, 

condition or requirement of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation 

to comply with such provision, condition or requirement.

Equitable Remedies. You hereby agree that BTB would be irreparably damaged if the terms of 

this Agreement were not specifically enforced, and therefore you agree that we shall be entitled, 

without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with 

respect to breaches of this Agreement, in addition to such other remedies as we may otherwise 

have available to us under applicable laws.

Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including the documents expressly incorporated by 

reference, constitutes the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the Site and 

supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications, whether electronic, oral or written, 

between you and us with respect to the Site.

I HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE FOREGOING 

TERMS OF USE AGREEMENT AND AGREE THAT MY USE OF THE SITE IS AN
