For this reason, you should frequently review these terms and conditions and any other applicable Customer Policies, including their dates, to understand the Agreement that applies to your purchases through the site.

 

Occasionally there may be information on the site that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers, and availability. Adore Beauty reserves the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information or cancel orders if any information on the site is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order).

 

MINIMUM ORDER

The minimum order value is $20.  

 

SHIPPING

Adore Beauty can only ship to a limited number of countries, as listed on our Shipping page. Adore Beauty is not responsible for customs charges and restrictions that vary from country to country and result from the importation or certain products. The purchaser remains responsible for all charges and fees incurred.

 

PRODUCTS & ORDERS

The products made available on the site, including any samples Adore Beauty may provide to you, are for personal use only. You may not sell or resell any products you purchase or otherwise receive from Adore Beauty.

All orders placed are an offer of purchase and are subject to acceptance by Adore Beauty. If an order is not accepted a full refund will occur at the earliest possible convenience. Adore Beauty reserves the right to refuse an offer for any reason.

Without limiting the above, Adore Beauty reserves the right to refuse or reduce the quantity of any orders that it reasonably believes are for the purposes of resale or otherwise may result in a violation of these terms and conditions, as determined by Adore Beauty in its sole discretion. As part of Adore Beauty’s order processing procedures, Adore Beauty will screen all received orders for fraud or other types of unauthorised or illegal activity. Without limiting the above, Adore Beauty reserves the right to refuse to process an order due to suspected fraud or unauthorised or illegal activity. If fraud or unauthorised or illegal activity is suspected, Adore Beauty may reject your order or its customer service department may call you at the phone number you provided (or use your email address) to confirm your order. Adore Beauty also reserve the right to cancel any accounts or refuse to ship to certain addresses due to suspected fraud or unauthorised or illegal activity. We take these measures to protect our customers as well as ourselves from fraud or other unauthorised or illegal activity.

Given the popularity of our products, except where prohibited by law, Adore Beauty may limit the number of products available for purchase by any one customer, including without limitation so that as many customers as possible may enjoy products supplied by Adore Beauty.

In the event of the requested products being unavailable Adore Beauty may cancel the transaction and effect a full refund.


PRICES & PAYMENT

All prices listed on the site are in Australian dollars and are inclusive of any Australian Goods and Services Tax (as applicable).

The prices indicated may be changed at any time without advance notice. However, the products shall be charged at the rate in force when the customer’s order was validated.

Where the customer pays by payment card, the customer warrants that they have the necessary rights to use the payment card and that they are fully authorised to use it to pay for the order.  The customer also warrants that this card gives access to sufficient funds corresponding to the amount of the order.  Failing this, Adore Beauty reserves the right to cancel the sale according. Adore Beauty is under no obligation to ship any goods ordered until payment for those goods has been received. In the case of payment by cheque, this would mean the clearing of funds represented by the cheque.


PRE-AUTHORISATION

When you make a purchase on the site by credit card, Adore Beauty may conduct a pre-authorisation on your credit or debit card for a portion of the purchase price. Once the pre-authorisation is processed, we will then instruct your financial institution to cancel the pre-authorisation. Please note that no funds are taken from your account at pre-authorisation but a temporary ‘hold’ is placed on them. Once we have cancelled the pre-authorisation, it may take up to seven (7) days for your financial institution to release the funds before you are able to access them.

 

USE OF PRODUCTS

Upon purchase of products, the buyer agrees to use the products only for their intended purpose and strictly in accordance with their instructions, precautions and guidelines. Any other use will cause the buyer to assume full responsibility for any loss or damage arising out of their use. Questions as to use can be directed to Adore Beauty via their contact details.

You should always check the ingredients for products to avoid potential allergic reactions.

If any minor uses any product purchased through the site it should be only after the parent or legal guardian has discussed the product with the minor's doctor.

 

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

To the full extent permitted by law, Adore Beauty makes no representations or warranties, express or implied, regarding any matter including merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or use in relation to any product supplied by Adore Beauty.

Where legislation implies into this agreement any condition or warranty that cannot be restricted or modified, Adore Beauty’s liability for any breach of such conditions or warranties will (to the full extent permitted by law) be limited to, at the option of Adore Beauty, one or more of the following: (a) replacement of the products, the repair of the products, or the supply of equivalent products; (b) repayment of any part of the price of the products supplied; or (c) payment of the costs of replacing or repairing the products, or acquiring equivalent products.

This Agreement will not be read or applied so as to purport to exclude, restrict or modify or have the effect of excluding, restricting or modifying the application in relation to the supply of any products pursuant to these terms of all or any of the provisions of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) or the provisions of any other statute, act or law of any State or Territory of the Commonwealth of Australia, or any other applicable territory, which by law cannot be excluded, restricted or modified.

CONCLUSION OF TRANSACTION

The agreement for sale is concluded only when goods are handled over to the designated carrier.

 

CREDIT CARD STORAGE

The site includes a credit card storage function, which will store your credit card details through a secure external storage service. As such your credit card details are not stored on or through the Adore Beauty site, and there is no way for these details to be retrieved by us or our staff.
