This page, together with the information contained in our Privacy Policy and Conditions of Website Use (“Terms and Conditions”) set out the legal terms that apply when you place an order for the products we offer for sale (“Products”) through the www.unitybeautyessentials.com website (the “Website).

Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully and make sure that you understand them before using the Services. Please note that by placing an order for Products through the Website, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. If you do not accept these Terms and Conditions, you will not be able to use the Services and you should stop using the Website immediately. If you continue to use the Website or if you order Products via the Website, we will take this as your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.

WE ONLY PROVIDE PRODUCTS TO CONSUMERS. By placing an order for the Products through the Website, you warrant that you are acting for purposes that are wholly or mainly outside your trade, business, craft or profession.

1.    UNDERSTANDING THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

1.1   Why you should read them. Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide Products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss.

1.2   When certain words and phrases are used in these Terms and Conditions, they have specific meanings (these are known as ‘defined terms’). You can identify these defined terms because they start with capital letters. Where a defined term is used, it has the meaning given to it in the section of the Terms and Conditions where it was defined.

1.3   When we refer to ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our’, we mean House of Care Limited. Where we refer to ‘you’ or ‘your’ we mean you, the person purchasing the Products.

1.4   We have used headings to help you understand these Terms and Conditions and to easily locate information. These Terms and Conditions are only available in the English language. We will not file copies of the contracts between us and you relating to our supply of the Products. Furthermore, please note that we may amend these Terms and Conditions from time to time so please check the relevant section of the Website regularly and each time you order Products (to ensure you understand the legal terms which apply at that time).

1.5   We may contact you. If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.

2.   OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU

2.1   How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.

2.2   If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the Products. This might be because the Product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

2.3   Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

3.   THE PRODUCTS

Products and Product packaging may vary slightly from pictures. The images of the Products and Product packaging displayed on the Website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to ensure that the colours of the Products and Product packaging are displayed accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device through which you access the Website accurately displays the colours of the Products and the Products’ packaging.

4.   YOUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES

If you wish to make a change to the Products you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the Product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and 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 want to end the contract (see clause 8 of these terms and conditions which sets out your rights to end the contract).

5.   OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
5.1   Minor changes to Products and/or Product packaging. We may change the Products and/or Product packaging:

(a)   to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements that may require us to do so, for example we may change the ingredients within our Products from time to time; and

(b)   to implement minor adjustments and improvements.

5.2   More significant changes to the Products and these terms. In addition, as we informed you in the description of the Product on our website, we may make changes to these terms or the Products, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any Products paid for but not received.

6.   PROVIDING THE PRODUCTS

6.1   Delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on the Website.

6.2   When and how the Products will be delivered to you. During the order process we will provide you with an estimate of when the Products will likely be delivered to you. Our delivery partner, myHermes, will deliver the Products to you. Our delivery partner will endeavour 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.

6.3   Where we deliver. Our delivery partner will deliver to any part of the UK, excluding the Channel Islands.

6.4   We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If the supply of the Products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible after us becoming aware of the likely delay to let you know and, if possible, we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any Products you have paid for but not received.

6.5   If you are not at home when the Product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the Products cannot be posted through your letterbox, our delivery partner will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the Products from a local depot.

6.6   If you do not re-arrange delivery. If, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we, or our delivery partner, will contact you for further instructions. We, and/or our delivery partner, may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our and/or a delivery partner’s reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 9.2 will apply.

6.7   When you become responsible for the goods. The Product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver it to the address you gave us or you.

6.8   When you own the Products. You own the Products ordered once we have received payment in full.

6.9   What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the Products to you, for example, your home address or telephone contact details. If so, this will have been stated and provided by you during the order process. However, if that information is incorrect we will contact you in writing to ask for the information we require to supply the Products to you. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 9.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the Products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

7.   YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT

7.1   You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:

(a)   If what you have bought is faulty or mis-described you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the Product repaired or replaced, or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 10;

(b)   If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 7.2;

(c)   If you have just changed your mind about the Product, see clause 7.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions;

(d)   In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 7.6.

7.2   Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (d) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any Products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:

(a)   we have told you about an upcoming change to the Product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 5.2);

(b)   we have told you about an error in the price or description of the Product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;

(c)   there is a risk that supply of the Products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; or

(d)   you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.

7.3   Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.

7.4   When you don’t have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:

(a)   Products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them;

(b)   Products which are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly;

(c)   Products which are medicinal products by administration by a prescriber, or under prescription or directions given by a prescriber;

(d)   Products which are supplied by a healthcare professional, prescriber or similar, under arrangements for the supply of services as part of the health service, where the Product is one that, at least in some circumstances, is available under such arrangements free or on prescription;

(e)   Products which are made to the consumer’s specification or are clearly personalised; and

(f)   any Products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.

7.5   How long do I have to change my mind? You have 14 days after the date you (or somebody you nominate) receives the Products, unless the Products forming part of a single order are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the Products

7.6   Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 7.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for the Products is completed when the Product is delivered and paid for. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for the Products not provided but we may deduct from that refund reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.

8.   HOW TO END THE CONTRACT WITH US

8.1   Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:

(a)   Email. Email us at info@unitybeautyessentials.com. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order (including order number) and, where available, your phone number and email address.

(b)   Online. Complete the online message form on our website.

8.2   Returning Products after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after Products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must return the Products by posting them back to us at Safestore Stevenage, Room 6332 – House of Care Limited, Unit 3/4, Argyle Way, Stevenage, SG1 2AD, United Kingdom. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the products within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.

8.3   When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:

(a)   if the Products are faulty or mis-described; and

(b)   if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the Product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.

8.4   How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the Products including the delivery cost, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.

8.5   Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:

(a)   We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the Products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.

(b)   The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a Product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.

8.6   When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us. In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind

9.   OUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT

9.1   We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a Product at any time by writing to you if:

(a)   you do not make any payment to us when it is due;

(b)   you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the Products. See clause 6.8 for further details; or

(c)   you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the Products to you or collect them from us.

9.2   You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 9.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for Products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.

10.   IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE PRODUCT

10.1   How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the Product, please contact us. You can write to us by sending an email to info@unitybeautyessentials.com.

10.2   Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this contract. The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of the Products you order, provided that these Products are goods, your legal rights entitle you to the following:

(a)   up to 30 days: if the goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.

(b)   up to six months: if your goods can’t be repaired or replaced, then you’re entitled to a full refund, in most cases.

(c)   if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.See also clause 7.3 which relates to your statutory right to change your mind.

11.   PRICE AND PAYMENT

11.1   Where to find the price for the Product. The price of the Product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the Product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 11.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Product you order.

11.2   We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the Product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

11.3   What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing (for example, if the price of the Product is unreasonably low), we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any Products provided to you.

11.4   When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment from all major credit card providers. You must pay for Products at the time of placing the order through the Website. By placing an order for Products through our website you are promising that all details you provide are true and accurate, that you are at least 18 years of age, that you are an authorised user of the credit or debit card used to place your order and that there are sufficient funds in the account to cover the cost of your order.

12.   OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU

12.1   We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.

12.2   We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Products as summarised at clause 10.2, and for defective Products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

12.3   We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the Products for domestic and private use. If you use the Products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

13.   MULTI-BUY OFFERS AND FREE GIFTS

13.1   In the event that Products offered on our Website as part of a “multi-buy” offer are returned to us, we are entitled to require all of the Products within an order which form part of that offer to be returned to us, or if only some of the Products forming part of that offer are returned to us charge you at the full price for the Products retained by you.

13.2   We may offer a free gift to you when you place an order for Products through our Website, subject to availability. You will not be entitled to a free gift unless we have explicitly stated that you so entitled are during the order process. Unless otherwise stated, we will only provide one free gift to you per order, regardless of whether you purchase more than one unit of a Product.

13.3   You are not entitled to receive any free gift unless you purchase from our Website a qualifying Product at full price. In the event that a free gift is delivered to you in error you will be required to return the free gift to us immediately.

13.4 We reserve the right to change, or substitute any item offered as a free gift at any time, and can withdraw the offer of a free gift at any time. The offer a free gift is subject to availability.

14.   HOW WE MAY USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

14.1   How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us:

(a)   to supply the Products to you;

(b)   to process your payment for the Products;

(c)   if you agreed to this during the order process, to give you information about similar Products that we provide, but you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us; and

(d)   in any other way as further described in our Privacy Policy unitybeautyessentials.com/privacy-policy.

14.2   We will only give your personal information to other third parties where the law either requires or allows us to do so.

15.   OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS

15.1   We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you are unhappy with the transfer you may contact us to end the contract within 6 weeks of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for Products not provided.

15.2   You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.

15.3   Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.

15.4   If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the clauses of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining clauses will remain in full force and effect.

15.5   Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

15.6   Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
