  • eFlorist ProgramTM Terms of Use

    Teleflora LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("Teleflora"), and you hereby enter into this Teleflora's eFlorist ProgramTM agreement (this "Agreement") to set forth the terms and conditions on which Teleflora will provide certain services to you relating to your website, as more particularly set forth below. Your continuing enrollment in the eFlorist Program following your receipt of this Agreement or following any future amendment hereto shall constitute your assent to these terms and conditions, as amended from time to time.

    1. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES.
    Pursuant to this Agreement, Teleflora will provide the following services to you in connection with the development and maintenance of your website (collectively "Services"):

    a) Teleflora will develop your website ("Website") based on your choice of the standard website design templates ("Templates") provided in either the online Quick Enrollment Form or the paper version of the enrollment form (both referred to herein as the "Enrollment Form"). Once you have completed the Enrollment Form and/or provided all other information and materials requested by Teleflora, Teleflora will develop your Website.

    b) Teleflora will host your Website by providing a server to store the data relating to your Website, maintain the content of your Website (except for the portions of the content relating to images you post on your Website ["Your Images"]), and communicate the orders placed by consumers on your Website to you, pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

    c) If you do not already have a domain name for your Website, Teleflora will, at your election, (1) obtain a domain name for your Website using the domain name of your choice, as provided in the Enrollment Form ("Your Domain"), subject to availability and Teleflora's Rules and Regulations, provided that Your Domain must not be identical or similar to or otherwise contain any trademark or trade name of Teleflora, or a third party, and (2) process the URL registration renewals for Your Domain. You shall have the right to ownership of Your Domain and, if Your Domain should be inadvertently registered in the name of Teleflora, Teleflora shall use reasonable commercial efforts to cooperate in the correction of the registration record of Your Domain to reflect your ownership thereof. If you obtain Your Domain for your Website on your own, you must do so at your sole expense, you must at all times designate Teleflora to be the technical contact in the registration record of Your Domain and you will be responsible for all necessary renewals of Your Domain at your expense. You hereby represent and warrant to Teleflora that Your Domain, regardless of whether Teleflora obtains it for you, does not and will not infringe upon any copyright, trademark, patent or other intellectual property right of any third party, including Teleflora.

    d) Teleflora will communicate to you all orders placed by consumers on your Website through the Dove Network®, and, if you are a subscriber of the Teleflora Credit Card Processing Service in good standing, then you may be eligible for online credit card authorization for each order. Teleflora will not be responsible in any way for any credit card authorization or processing provided by any third parties.

    e) If an order cannot be communicated to you through the Dove Network for any reason, Teleflora may, at its sole discretion, communicate such order through an alternative medium such as 1) faxing the order to you if Teleflora has a working fax number for your shop or 2) calling the order out to your shop if no fax number is on file. eFlorist orders are faxed or called out in order of date of delivery and by time zone. We will attempt to your shop 3 times, if the shop is unable to be reached, the order will then be cancelled with the consumer if an email is provided to insure that the customer will have time to place the order by other means if necessary. 3) If the order is an Answering service order and does not have an email address, the order will be sent to the 24Hr department for the consumer to be contacted via telephone to cancel the order. 4) The eFlorist call out department closes at 4:00 pm CDT Monday through Friday and noon on Saturday, both the eFlorist call out department and the eFlorist department are closed on Sunday.

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, you are solely responsible for all orders placed through your Website. Your responsibilities include, without limitation, responsibility for lost, unprocessed or mishandled orders that result from your failure to turn on your Dove Network or your being away from your shop or your computer. You are also solely responsible for informing the customers of any lost, unprocessed or mishandled orders, and for all other customer relationship matters relating to orders processed through your Website.

    2. ELIGIBILITY.

    In order to be eligible to have Teleflora develop and maintain your Website under this Agreement, you must, at all times during the term of this Agreement, (a) be a member of Teleflora in good standing, and (b) be a licensee of the Dove Network.

    3. FEES.
    a) In consideration for the development of your Website under this Agreement, you will pay Teleflora a one-time nonrefundable development fee (the "Development Fee"). In addition, in consideration for the hosting and the maintenance of your Website under this Agreement, you will pay Teleflora a monthly fee (the "Hosting/Maintenance Fee").

    b) In the event Teleflora obtains a domain name for your Website on your behalf, you will pay Teleflora the URL registration and renewal fees.

    c) You will pay Teleflora a transaction fee (the "Transaction Fees") for each Website order communicated to you. You will also pay Teleflora all other applicable Dove Network fees and credit card processing fees (if Teleflora provides credit card processing) relating to the Website orders you process.

    d) All fees under this Agreement may be amended and all additional fees may be charged by Teleflora upon written notice to you. Your failure to pay any amount when due shall constitute sufficient cause for Teleflora to terminate this Agreement. All payments under this Agreement, which shall be invoiced to you under Teleflora's clearinghouse statement, shall be subject to Teleflora's Rules and Regulations, the terms of Teleflora's membership contract and clearinghouse statement, and other policies and procedures of Teleflora in effect from time to time.

    e) You are solely responsible for the payment of all sales, use, value added or other taxes, federal, state or otherwise, however designated, which are levied or imposed by reason of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including, without limitation, taxes relating to the orders placed by consumers on your Website.
