Terms of Use

Welcome to the body shop australia website (the "site"). The site is owned and operated by adidem pty ltd acn 006 122 872 trading in australia as the body shop.  References in these terms and conditions and in our privacy policy to “we” and “us” means adidem pty ltd. Please read these terms of use carefully before using this site. Your use of this site is expressly conditioned upon your acceptance of the following terms of use. By using this site, you signify your assent to these terms of use. If you do not agree with any part of the following terms of use, you should not use this site. In addition, when using particular features and services on the site, you will be subject to any posted guidelines and rules applicable to such features and services, all of which are incorporated herein by reference.

Purpose of the Site

The purpose of the Site is to provide you with information about us, our products and stores, the campaigns that we support and the activities we undertake. In addition, you may be able to purchase products and services through the Site.

Product and Service Availability

Reference to any product or service on the Site does not constitute an offer to sell or supply that product or service and does not mean that the product or service is available or that the name and description of any product in your local shop will be the same as that included on the Site. Adidem Pty Ltd ACN 006 122 872 trading as “The Body Shop” controls and operates the Site from its headquarters in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. We in no way imply that the materials on our Site are appropriate or available for use outside Australia and we will not be able to fill your order if you require shipping outside of Australia. Inventory information is generally available on the Site for domestic (Australian) merchandise. This information can be used to estimate the likelihood that merchandise will be shipped immediately after you place your order. However, we cannot guarantee that a product listed as in stock will actually ship right away, as inventory can change significantly from day to day. In rare cases, a product may be in stock when you place your order, and sold out by the time your order is processed. However, if an item that is in stock in your shopping cart when you place your order is sold out at the time your order is processed, we will notify you by e-mail or telephone that your order will not be filled and your credit card will not be charged.

Colours

We try to display the colours of our products as accurately as possible. Nevertheless, as the actual colours you see will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any colour will be accurate.

Product Orders

PRICES AND AVAILABILITY OF THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES LISTED ON THE SITE ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. ALL PRICES AND CHARGES AS LISTED ON THE SITE ARE DISPLAYED AND CHARGED IN AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS (AUD). The listing, description of, or reference to, a product or service on the Site does not imply that the product or service is presently available or that we endorse that product or service. In the event a product or service is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error, error in pricing information received from a supplier, or any other reason, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any order placed for such product or service at the incorrect price, even if the order has been confirmed and/or your credit card has been charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we shall promptly issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price. Pre-packaged gifts are assembled individually and may vary slightly. We reserve the right to substitute a product of equal value and nature if the original product becomes unavailable.

Order Acceptance

Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason or for no reason at all. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any product or service.

Shipping

We do not ship products containing alcohol unless their contents and packaging comply with the Post Guide for Dangerous & Prohibited Goods & Packaging issued by Australia Post from time to time. We are not responsible for errors due to printing.

Payment

You are responsible for any payments due for any products or services ordered through your account. If we do not receive payment from your credit issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due to us. You shall also be responsible for any costs of collection of overdue payment.
