If you have already paid for the Product we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.

 

8. IMAGES AND SIZING OF PRODUCTS

8.1 The images of the Products on the Skin PS Website or in any other promotional materials are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the appearance accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer or any printed materials will display the appearance faithfully or reflect the true appearance of the Products. The Products that are delivered to you may therefore vary slightly from those images.

8.2 Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, any Product measurements, including weights and dimensions, shown on our Skin PS Website or in any other promotional materials are approximate only.

8.3 The packaging of the Products may vary from that shown in images on the Skin PS Website.

 

9. CHANGES TO THE PRODUCTS

9.1 We may make minor changes to the Products that will not affect your use of the Product, such as changes that:

(a) reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; or

(b) implement minor adjustments and improvements, for example to fix previously identified issues with the Products.

9.2 We will notify you if we intend to make any significant changes to the Products before we deliver the Products to you. If you are unhappy with the change, you can contact us and cancel your order as set out in paragraph 14.

9.3 If you wish to make a change to the Product you have ordered, please contact us at ukservice@slmdskincare.com. If a change is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the Product, the timing of delivery or any other changes that we would need to make as a result of your requested change. We will ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may cancel your order as set out in paragraph 14.

 

10. PRICES OF PRODUCTS

10.1 The price of any Product will be as quoted on the Skin PS Website and displayed to you when you complete the order process, except in cases of obvious error.

10.2 The price of any Product may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order we have accepted.

10.3 The price of a Product includes all taxes but excludes delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due. The costs of delivery may vary depending on the delivery method you choose and will be displayed to you when you submit your order

10.4 It is always possible that some of the Products may be incorrectly priced, despite our reasonable efforts. We will normally verify prices as part of our order-handling procedure so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If the Product’s correct price is higher than the price we have quoted to you, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of the rejection.

10.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an order acceptance, if the price displayed is a genuine and honest mistake and the error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing.

 

11. HOW TO PAY

11.1 After we accept your order, we will charge the price of the Product to your chosen payment method.

11.2 By submitting an order to us, you are confirming that the payment details provided on your order are valid and correct.

12. DELIVERY

12.1 We will provide you with an estimated date on which we will deliver the Products at the address you provided to us during the order process. We will aim to deliver the Products to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.

12.2 Unfortunately, although we will make every reasonable effort to ensure your Products are delivered within the estimated timescales, we cannot guarantee that they will not be affected by unforeseen issues affecting the manufacturer of the Product or our delivery partners. If we are unable to meet the estimated delivery date, we will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date.

12.3 Your delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us. If your delivery requires a signature and no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will leave you a note with information about how to rearrange delivery.

15. YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES

15.1 You understand and agree that you are responsible for your conduct whilst using the Products and for any consequences arising from such use. You agree to use the Products only for purposes that are proper and in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations and all terms, precautions, practices, instructions, policies and guidelines we have made and may make available.

 

16. OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO YOU IN RESPECT OF THE PRODUCTS

16.1 We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with our contract with you. This means that the Products we supply to you must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following:

(a) up to 30 days from delivery: if the Product is faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.

(b) up to six months from delivery: if the Product cannot be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases.

(c) after six months (depending on the type of Product): if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.

16.2 If you notify us of a defect in the Products that appears within the periods set out in paragraph 16.1 above, then we shall repair or replace the Products unless the defect has occurred solely as a result of:

(a) your failure to use the Products in accordance with a reasonable standard  of care and in accordance with any written care instructions we have provided to you;

(b) repairs or alterations made to the Products by anyone other than us or one of our approved contractors; or

(c) an accident or event outside of our control (such as a fire, lightning strike or storm damage).

16.3 If we are unable to repair or replace the Products in accordance with paragraphs 16.1 and 14.2 within a reasonable time, you may be able to claim a full or partial refund of the price paid for the Products. Please see our Cancellations and Returns Policy [https://www.slmdskincare.co.uk/pages/shipping-returns] for further information about returning any faulty or mis-described Products.

16.4 This paragraph does not affect any rights you have under applicable law.

 

17. OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO YOU GENERALLY

17.1 If we fail to comply with a contract between you and us, whether in respect of the Products or access to the Skin PS Website, we will be responsible (save as set out in this paragraph 15) for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these Terms and Conditions or our negligence, but we will not be responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if the loss or damage was an obvious consequence of our breach or if the loss or damage was contemplated by you and us at the time we entered into the contract.

17.2 While we do our best to ensure that the features and functionalities of the Skin PS Website are of a reasonably satisfactory standard, certain features may rely on networks and connections that are beyond our control. Some of the information provided to you on the Skin PS Website may also contain content owned or developed by third parties. As we do not own or produce such third party content, we cannot be responsible for it in any way.

17.3 In addition, due to the nature of the Internet and technology, the Skin PS Website is provided on an "as available" and "as is" basis. This means that we are unable to promise that your use of the Skin PS Website will be uninterrupted, without delays, error-free or meet your expectations and we do not give any commitment relating to the performance or availability of the Skin PS Website in these Terms and Conditions and, to the extent we are able to do so, we exclude any commitments that may be implied by law.

17.4 The maximum loss or damage we will be responsible for the Products is limited to the price you have paid us for the Product to which the loss or damage you suffer relates; however, we do not in any way exclude or limit our liability where it would be unlawful for us to do so, including for:

(a) death or personal injury caused by our negligence;

(b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or

(c) any breach of terms implied by law (including your right to receive products which are as described and match information we provided to you, are of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose and supplied with reasonable skill and care).

17.5 Our Products are supplied for domestic and private use only. We will not be responsible to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption or loss of business opportunity if you use the Products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose.

17.6 This paragraph 17 does not affect your statutory rights.
