BeautyFlash.co.uk complies with WEEE regulations which mean that suppliers of equipment (high street shops and internet retailers) must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge. The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. Those establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination harming wildlife and also human health.
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.
We shall not be liable for delay or failure to perform any obligation under these Terms & Conditions if the delay or failure is caused by any circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of god, war, civil disorder or industrial dispute.

Delays - Part Shipment
Very occasionally certain items will go temporarily out of stock or may be discontinued at short notice by our suppliers.

The remainder of your order will be dispatched within 24 hours of receipt of the good from our suppliers.
During busier times (for example Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, and especially at Christmas) there may be a slight delay in processing your order.
Most UK orders are sent via Hermes and our standard delivery times quoted. We cannot be held responsible for items delayed in the postal system, or any industrial action taken by our nominated couriers as this beyond our control.

We must allow up to 14 working days (UK Deliveries) and 28 working days (European and Rest Of The World) from dispatch before a parcel is deemed lost in transit. For further assistance please contact our Customer Services Team on +44 (0) 1442 967976 or CS@beautyflash.co.uk.
Unfortunately, severe weather conditions can disrupt our couriers from time to time. We have seen this in recent winters with localised snow and ice leading to dangerous road conditions and airport closures. This can affect the services we offer and will affect the usual guarantee of service levels that are offered by our couriers. Naturally, Couriers will always put the safety of its drivers and ancillary staff first over performance targets. Couriers do make every effort to put in place contingency plans when bad weather hits certain postcode areas. However, delays and back logs do occur from time to time.
These circumstances are beyond the control of both our control and our courier partners. When selecting shipping methods please be aware that no refunds will be given on Express Delivery (usually next working day) or other timed delivery services if the courier is unable to operate its normal services due to bad weather. Express Delivery Services will always take priority and are still the fastest way to receive items.
We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused to our customers as a result of adverse weather conditions.
Errors On Receipt Of Your Order
Any errors or missing items must be notified to us within 7 days of receipt of your order. We will be unable to redress any errors after this time has elapsed.
Proof Of Delivery
UK Saver Delivery, UK Priority and Express Delivery (UK Mainland), Standard and Priority Delivery (UK Exceptions) and some Euro Parcel orders will require a signature to release the parcel. Someone must be at your nominated delivery address to sign for your parcel between 8am and 8pm, so please provide a Delivery Address where the parcel can be reliably signed for, such as your place of work or a neighbours’ residence.
Pre-Orders & Free Gifts
Orders that contain pre-order products (i.e. not currently in stock) will be shipped as soon as all products are in stock.
Orders that qualify for a free gift will be confirmed on the Order Confirmation. If there is no free gift on the Order Confirmation, it was not allocated to the order or the order did not qualify for the free gift. All free gifts are subject to availability and we reserve the right to substitute free gifts without notification.
To help us process your order we require that you complete your full billing address details during the registration/checkout process matching the exact address and postcode details held by your bank. If these details are not correct, we may put the order on hold until our verification is completed. (This applies even if the transaction is completed and an order number is sent out to you).
Alternative Delivery Address
We will ship to another specified Delivery Address only when we have confirmed that the card holders billing address details are correct and verified. We are unable to make changes to delivery addresses once an order has been confirmed at checkout.
All international deliveries are usually shipped via road to the nominated country and then passed on to the local postal service. Please refer to the Delivery Times Estimator for your region. Parcels may have to pass through local customs which can delay your delivery. Countries outside the EU are subject to additional customs charges which vary considerably and are not included in the cost. These charges must be paid for by the recipient before the package is cleared. We cannot refund any customs or import duty paid by the recipient.
* Currently we cannot ship aerosols, items containing batteries and perfumes outside the European Union and Norway due to shipping restrictions. If you live outside these areas any aerosol items will be removed from your order and refunded, subsequently delaying the dispatch of your order.
Order and delivery Confirmation E-mails
When your order is received, we'll send you an e-mail confirming your order. Then, when your order is dispatched, we'll send you a dispatch confirmation. It will include the following information:
What if my order has not arrived?
If you have received confirmation of shipping but your goods have not arrived, please ensure that you have allowed sufficient time according to the estimated delivery times shown for your area.
Please be advised that the delivery times shown for each area are based on an estimated date of delivery, on rare occasions delivery can take longer than specified*. If your parcel contains aerosol or electric items please be advised that shipping is via surface mail and can take up to 28 working days.
If after this time your goods have still not arrived, in the first instance please check with your local mail delivery office to see that they are not holding your parcel. If they confirm that they do not have your goods, please contact us and we will do our best to assist you after the period set below. Please note that these times have been set to us by our postal service and are based on the guidelines regarding the processing and delivery of parcels; we are unable to re-ship, cancel or refund your order until after these time constraints have passed.

If you fail to retrieve the parcel, your parcel fails to be delivered on more than one occasion, no safe place option has been specified or your parcel is refused at the delivery address it will then be returned to us and there will be one of three courses of action. In the first instance we will attempt to contact you when your order is returned, however on occasion you may contact us before we have the opportunity to contact you, in both instances the following options will be available to you:
We can issue a refund minus the initial postage costs. – If your delivery was free, as per our terms & conditions on promotional postage, a fee* will be deducted from your refund to cover return postage and admin costs.
We can re-dispatch the parcel to you, however please note this will incur a further fee* to cover admin and postage costs.
If we have contacted you and have not received a response after 7 calendar days we will automatically process "Option 1"
* The fee will be charged based on the original shipping method used for UK delivery or International delivery. Please note even if your order qualified for free shipping you will be charged for the equivalent postage costs as return of the item voids the promotional postage offer. Should you have any queries as to this cost please refer to the ‘Delivery Prices’ section.
