Terms and conditions
Please take some time to read the following conditions applicable to purchasing products through this website.
REVIEW OF TERMS
The Agreement is subject to change from time to time without notice. Each order or transaction will be governed by the Agreement in force upon the date of that transaction.
Your continued use of the site following posting of any changes or modifications constitutes your acceptance of such changes or modifications and if you do not agree with these changes or modifications, you must immediately cease using the site. 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. SBK 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).
The minimum order value is $20.
SBK can only ship to a limited number of countries, as listed on our Shipping page. SBK 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 SBK may provide to you, are for personal use only. You may not sell or resell any products you purchase or otherwise receive from SBK without a wholesale agreement in place.
All orders placed are an offer of purchase and are subject to acceptance by SBK. If an order is not accepted a full refund will occur at the earliest possible convenience. SBK reserves the right to refuse an offer for any reason.
Purchase offers that may be refused include (but are not limited to) orders that SBK believes may be for resale or in violation to these terms and conditions. SBK will screen for possible fraudulent, unauthorized or illegal activities and orders that are flagged may be refused. You may be contacted if your order is flagged for such concerns.
In the event of the requested products being unavailable Adore Beauty may cancel the transaction and issue 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 accordingly. Adore Beauty is under no obligation to ship any goods ordered until payment for those goods has been received.
When you make a purchase on the site by credit card, SBK may conduct a pre-authorization on your credit or debit card for a portion of the purchase price. Once the pre-authorization is processed, we will then instruct your financial institution to cancel the pre-authorization. Please note that no funds are taken from your account at pre-authorization but a temporary ‘hold’ is placed on them. Once we have cancelled the pre-authorization, 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 SBK via our contact details.
You should always check the ingredients for products to avoid potential allergic reactions. You should always patch test a new product before regular use.
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.
CONCLUSION OF TRANSACTION
The agreement for sale is concluded only when goods are handled over to the designated carrier.
CAPACITY TO CREATE A MEMBER PROFILE
A member profile can only be created with SBK by persons with capacity to contract, who are over the age of 18, unless they have the permission or consent of their parent or guardian.

SBK is not liable for any loss of confidentiality or for any damages arising from your failure to comply with these security measures.
