No Returns


11. Products are not sold on a “Sale or Return” basis. Products are not to be returned to any address unless written authority has been received from Seller and an official collection has been arranged by Seller (for which Seller will obtain insurance to cover risk of loss or damage to Products during transportation by the carrier on return journey back to Seller). Unauthorised returns will not be refunded.


12. A minimum handling charge of 20% may be applied to all Products authorised for return and Products shop-soiled or otherwise not in re-saleable condition on receipt by the Seller may be subject to an increased handling charge, exception being to (a) those returned at the Seller’s request and (b) those which are faulty when supplied by the Seller.

17. VAT is excluded from all list, discounted and bonus/promotional prices.


18. Products sold to the Channel Islands are outside of the fiscal (VAT) territory of the EU and therefore not subject to VAT.
Payment


19. Unless otherwise authorised in writing, payment for the Products is to be made by Direct Debit. Seller reserves the right to charge fees to Customer if Seller, in its discretion, allows payment by any other means.


20. Payment may not be netted off against promotional invoices or other amounts claimed from Seller. Promotional activity must be invoiced by Customer to Seller separately and will be paid in accordance with the promotional agreement between the parties and/or Seller will issue a credit note to Customer to the value of the agreed promotional activity and Customer will pay the net amount outstanding under any invoices.


21. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, Customer will pay for the goods free of all deductions 45 days from the date of invoice and timing of payment shall be of the essence. Invoices are raised at the time of despatch of the Products. The 45 day credit period is from the despatch date up to payment and includes carriage time. Payment means cleared funds.


22. Default in payment of an invoice when it becomes due shall immediately and automatically, without any formal notice of default, accelerate and make immediately due and payable all other monies which may then be owed by Customer to Seller.

(c) Charge interest for late payment at the rate (both before and after judgment) of 8 percent per annum above the Bank of England base rate in force on the due date for payment calculated on the outstanding balance (including interest) due from the date for payment down to receipt by Seller of payment.


Delivery, Title and Risk


25. In the event of delivery errors, faulty or damaged Products or account queries, Customer should contact Seller’s Customer Service Department on the phone number shown on the invoice. Such claims must quote order/invoice number and must be notified within 10 DAYS of receipt of the Product. Evidence of damaged Products or packaging must be retained by Customer for inspection. Claims outside this time limit cannot be accepted. Accordingly, failure to notify Seller in accordance with this time limit shall result in Customer’s deemed acceptance of the Products delivered, no liability will be accepted by Seller in respect of late claims and Customer shall be bound to pay the price as if the Products were delivered in accordance with the Order.

26. Subject always to Clause 35, Seller's liability for any faulty or damaged Products shall be limited to, at the option of the Seller, (i) replacement of the relevant Products within a reasonable time or, (ii) reimbursement of the price paid by Customer to Seller for the affected Products.


27. Seller will arrange carriage of the Products from its premises to those of Customer or, with Seller’s prior written approval, to the premises where the Customer operates its business or the premises of Customer’s nominated warehouse provider. Customer shall make all arrangements necessary to take delivery of the Products whenever they are intended for delivery. Risk in all Products will pass to Customer on delivery by Seller to the carrier that Seller has arranged to transport the Products from Seller’s premises. Seller will obtain insurance to cover Customer’s risk of loss or damage to Products during their transportation by the carrier arranged by Seller. The level of insurance cover will be the price of the Products relating to the relevant Order.


28. Title in the Products shall remain with Seller (notwithstanding delivery) until:
(a) Seller has been paid in full for all sums of money for all Products sold by Seller to Customer for which payment is due (or which become due) and all other sums of money due to Seller from Customer on any account, including where relevant, in respect of Customer’s agreed contributions to the salary costs of the sales staff employed by Seller to sell the Products at Customer’s stores in the UK and Ireland; or
(b) until the Products are sold by Customer in the normal course of its business, whichever of (a) or (b) occurs first.


29. Nothing in Clause 28 shall confer on Customer any right to return the Products or to refuse or delay payment thereof. Until such time as title to the Products passes to Customer, Customer shall hold Products on behalf of Seller and carefully store them separately from other goods belonging to Customer or third parties in such a way as to ensure they are clearly identifiable as belonging to Seller. Until such time as title in the Products passes to Customer (and provided the Products are still in existence and have not been resold) Seller may at any time require Customer to deliver up the Products to Seller, and if Customer fails to do so forthwith, enter on any premises of Customer or any third party where the Products are stored and repossess the Products. Nothing in these conditions shall prevent Customer from selling the Products in the ordinary course of its business. Customer's permission to sell the Products shall terminate immediately if a resolution is passed to wind up Customer or a Receiver or Administrator is appointed.


Advertising Materials


30. All advertising, display and promotional material which is supplied without charge (including samples and gift with purchase, merchandising units, retail units, spa units, display units) either by a sales representative or Seller or delivered with an Order or separately will remain the property of Seller and will be returned if and when requested.

For example, if an employee leaves the business, it is the Account Holder’s responsibility to de-activate that employee’s access.
 
Any activity conducted by an individual that an Account Holder has granted User Permission to (including but not limited to any orders placed in error or incorrectly), is the responsibility of the Account Holder (as if it were the Account Holder themselves that carried out that activity), and L’Oréal is not accountable for any such activity. For the avoidance of doubt, where the Account Holder permits an individual to amend the permissions of other users on the account, any activity whatsoever that results is the responsibility of the Account Holder.
 
Any actions taken by any individual that is granted User Permissions are subject to the General Terms of Sale and Terms of Use.
