3.0 Our contract with you
3.1 How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to confirm and accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. 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 your method of payment was declined, 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.
3.3 Your order number. We will assign an order number (in the format of a subscription identifier) 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.
3.4 We only sell to the UK. Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from addresses outside the UK.
4.0 Our products
4.1 Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
4.2 Product packaging may vary. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.
5.0 Your rights to make changes
If you wish to make a change to the product 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- Your rights to end the contract).
6.0 Our rights to make changes
6.1 Minor changes to the products. We may change the product:
6.1.1 to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements. These changes will not affect your use of the product, but may affect the type or origin of materials used in manufacturing the product; and
6.1.2 to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to improve the manufacturing process, quality of materials or user experience. These changes will not affect your use of the product.
6.2 More significant changes to the products and these terms. In addition, we may sometimes need to make more significant changes to these terms or the product, 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.
7.0 Providing the products
7.1 Delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.
7.2 When we will provide the products. During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you. If the products are on-going services or subscription(s), we will also tell you during the order process when and how you can end the contract. You can find the specific details regarding your Subscription with FFS Beauty by logging into your “My Account” area on www.ffs.co.uk and clicking on the “Account Details” link.
7.2.1 If the products are goods (purchased on a one off basis). If the products are goods we will deliver them to you as soon as reasonably possible (usually within 3-5 working days) and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.
7.2.2 If the products are an on-going subscription to receive goods. We will supply the goods to you in accordance with the terms of your Subscription until you end the contract as described in clause 8 or we end the contract by written notice to you as described in clause 10.
7.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and 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 within 30 days.
7.4 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, the Royal Mail will usually leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery (usually this will involve picking it up from your local sorting office or they may have left your parcel with a neighbour).
7.5 Your legal rights if we deliver goods late. You have legal rights if we deliver any goods late. If we miss the delivery deadline (currently 30 days due to delays outside our control as a result of Covid-19) for any goods then you may treat the contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
7.5.1 we have refused to deliver the goods;
7.5.2 delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
7.5.3 you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
7.6 Setting a new deadline for delivery. If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 7.5, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
7.7 Ending the contract for late delivery
. If you do choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 7.5 or clause 7.6 you can cancel your order for any of the goods or reject goods that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those goods (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled goods and their delivery. If the goods have been delivered to you, you must either return them in person to where you bought them or post them back to us. Please call our Customer Experience team on 01543 648044 or email us at email@example.com
7.8 When you become responsible for the goods. A product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us.
7.9 When you own goods. You own a product which is goods once we have received payment in full.
7.10 What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We will need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you, for example, the product type and your name and address. We can normally take this information from the details provided on your account on our website. If you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 10.2 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 accurate information that we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
7.11 Reasons we may suspend the supply of products to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:
7.11.1 deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
7.11.2 update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
7.11.3 make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 6).
7.12 Your rights if we suspend the supply of products. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the product we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for products while they are suspended. You may contact us to end the contract for a product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract.
7.13 We may also suspend supply of the products if you do not pay. If you do not pay on time or if your debit or credit card account cannot be charged for any reason, FFS Beauty Ltd. reserves the right to make further attempts to charge your debit or credit card at our discretion. You agree not to hold us responsible for banking charges (or other charges) incurred due to payments on your account as a result of this. If payment is still not made within 30 days of us reminding you, then we reserve the right to suspend your Subscription until you have paid us the outstanding amounts (see clause 12.5). We may suspend supply of the products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products. We will not suspend the products where you dispute the unpaid invoice (see clause 12.8). We will not charge you for the products during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the products we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 12.7).
8.0 Your rights to end the contract
8.1 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:
8.1.1 If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 11;
8.1.2 If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;
8.1.3 If you have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 8.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods;
8.1.4 In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 8.6.
8.2 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 8.2.1 to 8.2.5 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:
8.2.1 we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 6.2);
8.2.2 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;
8.2.3 there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
8.2.4 we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 30 days; or
8.2.5 you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong (including because we have delivered late (see clause 7.6).
8.3 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.
8.4 When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes once these have been unsealed after you receive them.
8.5 How long do I have to change my mind? You have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receive the goods, unless:
8.5.1 Your goods 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 goods.
8.5.2 Your goods are for regular delivery over a set period (for example a Subscription). In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receive the first delivery of the goods.
8.6 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 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered and paid for. If you want to end the contract in these circumstances, just contact us to let us know. The contract will not end until 1 calendar month after the day on which you contact us. We will refund any advance payment you have made for products which will not be provided to you. For example, if you tell us you want to end the contract on 4th February, we will continue to supply the product until 3 March. We will only charge you for supplying the product up to 3 March and will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the supply of the product after 3 March.
9.0 How to end the contract with us (including if you have changed your mind)
9.1 Tell us you want to end the contract
. Email our Customer Experience team us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
9.2 When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return:
9.2.1 if the products are faulty or misdescribed; or
9.2.2 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. In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
9.3 How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the products (including delivery costs if appropriate), by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
9.4 Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
9.4.1 We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, 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 goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
9.4.2 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.
9.5 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. For information about how to return a product to us, see clause 9.2.

10.2 You must compensate us if you break the contract.

10.3 We may withdraw the product. We may write to you to let you know that we are going to stop providing the product.

12.0 Price and payment
12.1 Definitions. The ‘Initial Subscription Date’ is the date of the first payment for a Subscription. Monthly subscription requires a payment to FFS Beauty every 30 days after the ‘Initial Subscription Date’.
12.2 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 take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.4 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order. At any time after the Initial Subscription Date, you have the right to amend your payment profile in the “My Account” area of our site. Details of your next payment date can be found on the main page of “My Account”.
12.3 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.
12.4 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our 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, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
12.5 When you must pay and how you must pay
. All Payments shall be made either by Credit or Debit Card. All sales and payments will be in Pounds Sterling. Payments are processed by a ‘third party processing agent’ who in these Terms & Conditions refers to Stripe Payment Terms
. You must pay for the products before we dispatch them. You acknowledge that until we receive confirmation from our third party processing agent, a payment will not have been validly made and the order will not be shipped. It is your responsibility to ensure that the ‘third party processing agent’ has correct and valid payment details throughout your entire Subscription period.
12.6 We may change our prices. We reserve the right to change the fees for any services at any time. We agree to notify you at least 30 (thirty) days in advance of any change in fees. If you do not agree to such changes in fees, you have the right to terminate your Subscription.
12.7 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
13.0 Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
13.1 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.
13.2 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 11.2; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
13.3 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.
15.0 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 14 days 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.
15.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs 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. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment 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.
