3 The order process and formation of the contract between us
3.1 You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your orders via the Website up until the point at which you submit your order by clicking the confirm order with an obligation to pay (or similar) button on the check-out page of our Website. Please carefully check your order at each stage of the order process. Once you have clicked the confirm order with an obligation to pay (or similar) button, you will need to pay for the Products you have ordered via the Website.
3.2 Your order is an offer to purchase from us. When you place an order with us (or otherwise offer to make a purchase from us), you do so in accordance with the terms of our agreement, subject to our acceptance of your order (or offer to make a purchase). If you place an order via our Website (or where we have otherwise stated that we will), we will send you an email acknowledging receipt of your order, together with your order number and details of the Product(s) you have ordered. Please note this email is an acknowledgement and is not an acceptance of your order.
3.3 Unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order (or offer to make a purchase) or you have cancelled it in accordance with our returns policy, we accept your order (or offer to make a purchase) by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Products have been dispatched (Dispatch Confirmation). The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
3.4 We may choose not to accept your order (or offer to make a purchase) for any reason and we will not be liable to you or to anyone else in those circumstances. If we do not accept your order (whether in whole or in part) we will refund any monies paid in connection with that order (or that part of the order that we do not accept).
3.5 Our agreement is formed when we accept your order (or offer to make a purchase). The processing of your payment and acknowledgment of receipt of your order (by email) does not constitute legal acceptance of your order.
3.6 If we accept your order, we have a legal duty to supply our Products in conformity with our agreement.

5.5 Prices for Products exclude delivery charges unless expressly stated otherwise. Delivery charges vary depending on the Product(s) you order, the delivery address and the delivery method you select; please see our Shipping Terms for further details. When you place an order via our Website, delivery charges are calculated automatically in your shopping basket depending on your choices and added to your order.
5.6 We may update prices at any time. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the thousands of products we sell may occasionally be mispriced. If this happens then we will not be obliged to supply the Products at the incorrect price or at all. We will (at our discretion) either cancel your order and refund the price you have paid or endeavour to contact you and ask you whether you wish to continue with the order at the correct price. If we are unable to contact you or you do not wish to continue with the order at the correct price, we will cancel your order and refund the price you have paid.

If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.

7 Getting your Products
7.1 If you order Products for delivery then the terms that apply to that delivery will depend upon the Product(s) that you order, the delivery address and the delivery method you select. Unless we specifically agree otherwise, we only deliver to the areas indicated in our Shipping Terms. Further detail regarding the shipping methods that we use can be found in the Shipping Terms section of this Website.
7.2 Subject to availability and our Shipping Terms, where we have agreed to deliver the Products, we will use reasonable endeavours to do so on any specified date we agree, or if no date is specified, within 30 days of the date of your order. In the case of circumstances beyond our reasonable control (for example, adverse weather conditions, unpredictable delays caused by customs clearance procedures, traffic congestion, road works, diversions or mechanical breakdowns, in each case to the extent beyond our reasonable control) we may not be able to deliver the Products within these timescales and we will not be liable for any delay or failure to deliver the Products if the delay or failure is wholly or partly caused by such circumstances. In the event that a delivery does not take place, we and you will agree an alternative delivery date.
7.3 You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
8 Cancellation and returns
8.1 You may cancel your order (or any part of it) and return your Products for any reason before dispatch (where applicable) or within 14 days after the date of delivery (as the case may be) bye-mailing us at elfemsUK@elfcosmetics.com to cancel the order (or part of it) and arrange return (if we request that you do so).
8.2 Where your order comprises multiple delivery shipments, the 14 day cancellation period for the Products in your order runs from the date of the delivery of the last shipment to you.
8.3 You will lose your right to cancel after the expiry of the 14 day period referred to in clause 8.1(this does not affect your rights if there is any problem with the Products).
8.4 You may use the cancellation form at the end of these Terms, but you do not have to.
8.5 To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
8.6 The right to cancel your order set out above is subject to the following exclusion. Your right of cancellation will not apply to Products which are sealed and which will not be suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons, if they become unsealed after delivery.
8.7 In relation to Products delivered to you, you may need to take delivery of the Products before you can cancel your order if the Products are placed into our delivery process before we receive your notice of cancellation. This does not affect your rights under this clause and clause 9.
8.8 If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
8.8.1 then you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract; and
8.8.2 You will be responsible for the cost of returning the Product to us unless the Product is not as described, fit for purpose or not of satisfactory quality as required by consumer legislation (in this case, see clause 8.10).
8.9 If you cancel our agreement:
8.9.1 We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below. We will refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund 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. The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. Where you cancel part of an order, we may recalculate any applicable delivery charge and deduct this from the refund.
8.9.2 we will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay:
(i) if you have received the Product: 14 days after 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; or
(ii) if you have not received the Product: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
8.10 For the avoidance of doubt if you return the Products to us under this clause 8 because they are not as described, not fit for purpose or not of satisfactory quality (as required by consumer legislation), we will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us (if we request that you do so).
