You must not conduct any systematic or automated data collection activities on or in relation to our website without our express written consent.

(6)  Accuracy of content

We have taken great care in the preparation of the content of this website, in particular to ensure that the details, descriptions and prices quoted are correct at the time of publishing. All prices are displayed including VAT. Purchases from non EU countries may result in import duties payable on receipt of the goods. The customer is responsible for these duties.

We are not responsible for the content of any off-website pages or any other websites linked to or from this website. Links appearing on this website are for your convenience only and are not an endorsement by us of the content, products, services or suppliers connected therewith.

All images of products or services on this site are purely for graphical representation only. Whilst every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information, we accept no responsibility for inaccurate images of products or images differing from actual products received.

(7)  Availability

All goods are subject to availability. Prices stated on our website remain in effect for so long as the products are available or as otherwise stated on our website. All offers and promotions are subject to availability.

There will be some times when your access to this website is restricted to allow for repairs, maintenance or improvements. If you find a fault, please contact us.

(8)  Products

Prices stated on our website may be stated incorrectly. This will be a short-term error while essential maintenance/updating of the website are being carried out.

Prices for products are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect contracts which have already come into force, i.e. where orders have been placed before these changes became effective.

The purchase of products via our website will be subject to our terms of sale.

(9)  Delivery rules and restrictions

Delivery charges are specified in the Delivery section. The delivery charge is shown prior to confirming your order. You are responsible for arranging collection/redelivery of the package once delivery has been attempted by the carrier.

An order can be delivered to one address only. If you require orders to be delivered to multiple addresses you need to place a separate order for each delivery address.

We are unable to process orders to a PO Box address.

We endeavour to dispatch all orders within 48 hours of order placement. Unless agreed otherwise all orders are sent by Royal Mail second class post with estimated delivery within 3 to 5 working days. Orders are processed and shipped on working days only (Monday through Friday, excluding bank holidays). Orders over £20 may require a signature upon delivery.

Nuts Organic Skincare does not accept responsibility if the delivery company fails to notify you of an attempted delivery. In the unlikely event that your order gets delayed or goes missing in transit, refunds or replacements will only be issued after our customer support team has attempted to locate your order with the delivery company used.  If collection/redelivery from a depot/sorting office is not arranged by yourself a refund (minus the original shipping charge) will only be issued once the goods have been returned to us. This may take up to three weeks.

All prices are displayed including VAT. Purchases from non EU countries may result in import duties payable on receipt of the goods. The customer is responsible for these duties.

  3. Power failure, industrial disputes affecting any third party, governmental regulations, fires, floods, extreme weather, disasters, civil riots, terrorist attacks or wars.

Where a force majeure event gives rise to a failure or delay in us performing our obligations under these terms of sale, those obligations will be suspended for the duration of the force majeure event.

If we become aware of a force majeure event which gives rise to, or which is likely to give rise to, any failure or delay in us performing our obligations under these terms of sale, we will notify you forthwith.
