Purchasing beauty products via the Cosmetify Checkout Service
Our site allows you to browse thousands of beauty products sold by our retail partners, add them to your shopping basket and purchase them through our Checkout service, all whilst using the same website. This allows you to purchase multiple beauty products from various retailers in one transaction. We will process the orders for you when you use our Checkout Service, but you will enter into a contract for the supply of beauty products with our retail partners, rather than us.
When we process your orders, we will share your personal data securely with our retail partners, including your shipping address for delivery. Our retail partners will then be responsible for your data. Please refer to their individual privacy policies for more information.
Our site is provided solely as an online venue for connecting retailers with consumers. We are not a party to any transaction or contract with any retailer that you may enter into for the purchase of a product and we have no liability in respect of such products or transactions. We make no warranties as to the quality, safety, or legality of any products advertised on our site. You acknowledge and agree that you are not making a purchase from us and are not entering into a contract with us. Your purchase is from the retailer in question, and your contract is with that seller. We will not be a party to any complaint or dispute between you and any retailer or have any liability therefor. Any claims must be made directly against the retailer concerned and you agree to release us from and indemnify us against any and all claims, demands and damages of every kind and nature, known or unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
Where our site contains resources provided by third parties, and information relating to products featured on our site including but not limited to product descriptions, pricing, ingredients and reviews, this is provided for your information only. Stock and prices are updated automatically by the retailers and feed into our site on a daily basis and we are therefore entirely reliant on the information provided to us by our retail partners. Whilst we use reasonable endeavours to correct any errors or omissions as soon as practicable once they have been brought to our attention, we make no representations or warranties regarding the accuracy or completeness of the information provided by these third parties or posted about third party products (or their prices) on our site.

By law, sellers must provide goods that are of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, as described at the time of purchase, in accordance with any pre-contract information that they provide to buyers, and that match any samples or models that they have shown to the buyer. As a consumer, you have certain legal rights with respect to the purchase of goods and services. For full details of your legal rights and guidance on exercising them, it is recommended that you contact your local Citizens Advice or Trading Standards Office.

If you are ordering from within your own Customs zone or region, import duties will not be applicable; however, you may need to pay VAT or local sales taxes. Once a product is in your basket, you can go through the payment process to pay for the products. The final price will be shown during the checkout process, and by proceeding you confirm that you are happy for us to complete your order and take payment. Our checkout process lists the payment methods that we accept.
Once you have placed an order with us, our retail partners will confirm your order with us. You will only be charged once your order has been confirmed. If your order cannot be fulfilled, we will inform you and funds will not be taken.
Your payment receipt will show the name 'Cosmetify' against your purchase, but you will receive separate confirmation emails from each retail partner that you have purchased from, showing details of each individual purchase.
Returns and Cancellation
If you wish to cancel or return any part of your order, you must contact our retail partners directly. Your purchase is from the retailer in question, and your contract is with that seller. They are solely responsible for accepting returns and cancellations.
As a consumer, you can cancel your order and obtain a refund within 14 working days from delivery. Each of our retail partners will have their own returns and cancellation process and we recommend referring to their own terms and conditions for this information.As a consumer, you can cancel your order and obtain a refund within 14 working days from delivery.
