What is your return policy?

All returns must be authorized in advance. Smallflower accepts returns on unopened, unused products for 30 days after the order is received. To receive an authorization, please contact us with your name, order number and the reason for the return, and we will email you return instructions. If the product being returned has been used or opened, please be detailed when you give the reason for the return. We will try to accommodate return requests, but we reserve the right to deny returns on opened and used products, especially those that have not been authorized in advance.  The customer must cover the cost of return shipping for all returns that are not the result of errors by Smallflower.  For safety reasons we do not accept returns on homeopathic medicines. For health and sanitary reasons, we do not accept returns on hair brushes, toothbrushes, shaving brushes, shaving tools or manicure/pedicure tools, even if they are not used.

Is a secure website?

We realize that by shopping with us, you trust us with your personal information. We use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") authentication to ensure the confidentiality of online purchases at Smallflower. This encryption standard helps protect third parties from intercepting your vital personal information. We will never display your full credit card number; only the last 4 digits for identification purposes. Our site is McAfee Certified as a safe place to shop and we are scanned on a daily basis. We feel confident that we provide a very strong level of security. Nevertheless, because we cannot control the potential unlawful activities of third parties, information is transmitted at your own risk.

What is your privacy policy?

Smallflower is committed to keeping your personal information private and secure.  We collect information about you as part of the registration and ordering process. You may choose not to share this information with us, but that might result in an inability to use our services. Smallflower does not share your personal information with any third party other than those required to fulfill your order (e.g. merchant bank for credit card charging; UPS for order delivery). In such cases we disclose only enough information to perform the necessary services, and the third parties are prohibited from using or revealing your personal information for other purposes.

Smallflower may use your email address or phone number to contact you about your order if we have questions or problems. If you have not opted out of our email newsletter you may also receive that on occasion, but it will always contain an easy way for you to unsubscribe. Our goal is to give you only the information that you want.

Our privacy policy will remain posted here and it may change in the future. Any significant change will be announced on the homepage and/or via email. By using this site, you agree to the terms of this policy.
