If you want to ask us anything about these Terms and Conditions or have any comments on or about Our Website, please email our Customer Service team via the help section and ‘Contact Us’ link which appears on the bottom of this website.
Our Contract with You
Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from or deliver to addresses outside the UK.
Price and Products
We purchase our products directly from authorised distributors, providing you with an extra guarantee of quality and assurance. Due to the nature of the products we stock, many of which are completely free from artificial preservatives, we are only able to guarantee a minimum shelf life of 6 months from purchase.
We take care to ensure prices, product information and the content of Our Website (including product descriptions, brand information, colour charts, photographs and ingredients), are displayed on Our Website as provided by the manufacturer or brand authorised agent, are for illustrative purposes only and are accurate at the time of publishing. We cannot accept responsibility for any omissions or errors in this information. Independent tests have not been performed to verify the accuracy of product claims or ingredient inclusions or omissions.
All prices are shown in Pounds Sterling and exclude post and package charges. Prices may change over time. All prices are displayed including VAT and exclusive of delivery charges.
We will only accept orders if there are no material errors in the description of the merchandise or its price as advertised on Our Website. In the event of an error or other content related issue, we reserve the right to correct such error without notification. We also reserve the right to cancel any order that may have been made with such error.
Our Rights to Make Changes
We may change the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat. These changes will not affect your use of the product.
Vouchers and Coupon Codes
Only one coupon code is allowed per order and it must be entered correctly in the “Coupon Code” box at the checkout page. When entered correctly, the coupon code/gift voucher or discount code will show in your basket. A coupon code/gift voucher or discount code cannot be provided if it has not been entered at the checkout section or after the order has been confirmed.
When a coupon code requires a minimum spend, the minimum spend excludes delivery fees & VAT. Samples and trial sized products will also be excluded from the minimum spend. When returning items from your order, if a discount code has been used, your order no longer qualifies, thus the value will be deducted from your refund; if you used a free gift coupon and your order no longer qualifies, the free gift must be returned or it’s value will be deducted from the refund. When a coupon code provides a free gift, the free gift is not eligible for exchange or refund.
Codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers. Codes are valid for a specific period of time and may be limited to certain product categories or brands. Unless otherwise stated, all discount codes are subject to the following exclusions: Samples, trial size products, Bare Planet Gift Vouchers, Faith in Nature products & Eco Kid. Discount codes exclude all sale items.
Orders & Dispatch Confirmation
Once you place an order with us, we will send you an email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is not an acceptance of your order, just a confirmation that we have received it and we are processing it. We may refuse to accept a transaction for any reason to anyone at any time at our sole discretion without any liability.
Acceptance of your order and completion of the contract between us will happen when we email you a Dispatch Confirmation stating the products have been dispatched. The sale contract is therefore concluded in England and the language of the contract is English.
Orders are usually processed as soon as they are received. Orders are dispatched on Mondays through to Fridays except on Bank Holidays. Orders received on Bank Holidays or a non-working day, will be processed on the next working day. Orders are usually dispatched with 24 hours but may take up to 3 working days to be delivered. This may vary in rural areas and take an extra day or two.
Once an order has been placed, our immediate processing means we are not able to stop it being dispatched, even if you have not received your Dispatch Confirmation or you email us to cancel your order immediately after placing it. We will be happy to assist you return your order once you have received it. Please see the sections on Changes, Cancellations and Returns.
If an item is out of stock or cannot be delivered for whatever reason, we will contact you immediately. When multiple orders are made within a short time frame (usually 24 – 48 hours), they will be consolidated and delivered as a single delivery. If the order comprises of multiple products, some of the products may be dispatched under a separate cover. If this happens you will be notified via email.
We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:
(a) deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes.
(b) update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.
(c) make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you.
We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. You may contact us to end the contract for a product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 60 days and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product after you end the contract.
You can pay for your purchases by credit/debit card. Select the appropriate payment method when placing your order. We accept payment by Visa, Mastercard, EuroCard, American Express. Please ensure that the details you enter are correct. Please note that all credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the issuer of the card. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to pay or does not for any reason authorise payment to Bare Planet, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery of products.
We retain the legal ownership of all products until full payment has been made by you and received by us. Legal ownership of the products will immediately transfer back to us if we refund any payment for the products to you. Risk of the product transfers to you and the product becomes your responsibility upon delivery to the address you gave us.
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract.
We operate a complaints handling procedure which we will use to try to resolve disputes when they first arise, please let us know if you have any complaints or comments at ‘Contact Us’.
