Should their be a delay of over 3 days in the scheduled time of delivery and if this delay is not a result of a force majeure or caused by the client himself, the client will have the right to cancel his order by sending an email to Mascafleurs on the email address indicated on the website.  The sale will thus be annulled, unless the delivery was already underway before the reception of the email.

The cost of the order will be refunded to the client within 15 days following the reception of the cancellation email.

Recipient

The products will be delivered to the address indicated by the client on the order form.  It is thus strongly recommended that the order form be carefully filled in and that all information entered on the form is double checked before confirming the order.

  • the post office, for international clients
  • the Mascafleurs shop in Moka, for clients from Mauritius.

to take possession of their delivery.

It is recommended that the parcel be picked up within 2 days following the “Called during absence” notice due to the perishable nature of the products. Mascafleurs cannot be held responsible for the end quality of the product at the time of reception.

Should the addressee not present himself to pick up the parcel or should he refuse to accept delivery of the parcel (for reasons other than the non-conformity of the products), or if the delivery was not able to be carried out due to errors or inaccurate information about the recipient’s contact details when placing the order, Mascafleurs will inform the client by email at the address stipulated on the order form.

Should this situation arise, Mascafleurs will in no way be held responsible and the delivery will be considered as complete.

Service agreement

It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that the delivery is undertaken correctly.  This will require that the client verifies, personally or through the recipient, the number and state of the products upon delivery.

Should the products be judged unsatisfactory by the client, the latter, or the recipient of the parcel, should refuse the delivery and write clearly and precisely the reason for their refusal on the delivery order form which accompanies the products. He must then inform Mascafleurs within 24 hours by email on the website where the order was placed, giving the exact information: name of client, date of order, name and address of recipient, products ordered, delivery date etc, as well as the reasons for refusing to accept delivery of the products.  Mascafleurs will in no case be held responsible if the state of the products upon delivery result from a force majeure or was caused during transportation.

Should the client have doubts on the number of products delivered, the client or recipient can accept delivery of the parcel but must write the number of missing products clearly on the delivery form before signing it.  He must then inform Mascafleurs within 24 hours of reception by email on the website where the order was placed and by giving exact details of his order as stipulated above.

If the client does not give precisions on the delivery notice form and does not contact Mascafleurs as stipulated above, the products will be considered as delivered and in conformity with the order.

All damages and/or interest claims on behalf of the client will be limited to the total cost of the order.

The payment for products and transport costs must be carried out by credit card only.

The client’s card will be debited upon validation of the order.

Mascafleurs will not be liable if there is a delay in delivery or if it cannot take place due to a force majeur such as a cyclone, a strike, floods, uprisings etc. Any interruptions that occur on the website or an intrusion by a third party on the website will be labeled as a technical fault over which Mascafleurs has no control and will thus also be considered as a force majeure.

Should such an event arise, Mascafleurs will inform the client, whenever possible, by email within 24 hours as from the time of the knowledge of the event and reserves the right to cancel all or part of the sale.

The client will be refunded the total amount of the order, or part thereof, according to the situation, within a delay of 15 days following the cancellation of the order, or part thereof, due to the force majeure.
