WEBSITE TERMS & CONDITIONS
Due to the current Covid-19 situation deliveries are currently slightly delayed. Deliveries from DHL will take up to 3 days and Hermes will be 5-7 days.
Also couriers will be delivering items to a safe place to ensure social distancing rules are adhered to. Due to this, we are unable to deal with any delivery disputes - all of these will have to be made directly with the courier company once the above timescale has elapsed.
1. INFORMATION ABOUT US
The Site is operated by Ace Parfums Limited ("we" / "us"). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 08846976 and with our registered office at Scentsational, Ace Parfums Limited, Mays Wish, Foster Street, Harlow, CM17 9HR. Our VAT registration number is GB279077166
2. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
2.1 You may place an order to purchase a Product advertised for sale on the Site by following the onscreen prompts after clicking on the item you are interested in. You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you submit your order by clicking the "Make Payment" button on the "Payment" page.
2.2 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail (the "Order Confirmation") from us acknowledging that we have received your order and giving an order number and a summary of your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (the "Dispatch Confirmation"). The contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
2.3 The contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.
2.4 We may choose not to accept your order for any reason and we will not be liable to you or to anyone else in those circumstances.
2.5 We may be unable to process your order if:
- The Product you ordered is out of stock or discontinued;
- There is a problem with authorization of the payment on your credit card.
3.1 We will deliver the Products to you in accordance with the delivery option specified by you when you placed your order (e.g. Standard Delivery, Express Delivery).
3.2 We will usually deliver all Products comprised in your order in one delivery. We will deliver directly to the delivery address specified in your order. We cannot deliver items within the same order to multiple addresses. Where possible deliveries will be made to your door. If you are not in to receive your delivery, the courier may leave your delivery with a neighbour. We are not responsible for any additional carrying or positioning of Products ordered. Express Deliveries must be signed for at the delivery address.
4. RISK AND OWNERSHIP
4.1 Once delivered, the Products ordered will become your responsibility and, except in relation to Products that are damaged or faulty when delivered or have been incorrectly delivered, we will not accept any liability for their loss, damage or destruction after they have been delivered.
4.2 Ownership of the Products will only pass to you on: delivery of the Products to you; or us receiving full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, (including delivery charges) whichever is the later.
5. PRICE AND PAYMENT
5.1 The price of any Products will be as quoted on our Site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
5.2 These prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due once you have selected a delivery service from the available options on the Delivery page.
5.3 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
5.4 We cannot complete your order until you have paid for it in full. Payment can be made by most major credit or debit cards and PayPal by completing the relevant details on the "Payment" page.
5.5 By using a credit/debit card or PayPal to pay for your order, you confirm that the card/account being used is yours. All credit/debit card/PayPal account holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment we will not accept your order and we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and we are not obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal. We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging you as a result of our processing of your credit/debit card/PayPal payment in accordance with your order.
5.6 Our Site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our Site may be incorrectly priced. We will rectify any such errors as soon as possible once we become aware of them. If a Product's correct price is different from the price stated on our Site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
INTERNATIONAL PAYMENT AND DELIVERIES
5.7 We only accept payment in Pound Sterling by credit or debit card & PayPal.
5.8 If an exchange rate is applicable to your order your card provider will determine the rate of exchange and may add an administration charge which you will be liable to pay.
5.9 We are able to accept, MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, Delta, or American Express although we reserve the right to refuse to accept any of these cards from time to time without notice. We try hard to ensure that using your credit or debit card when you shop online is safe and secure.
5.10 When you have made your choice and your order has been placed, you will receive an order confirmation email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is not an acceptance of your order, just confirmation that we have received it.
5.11 The contract between us for the items you have ordered will only be formed when we email you to confirm that the items have been dispatched. The contract will therefore be formed in England and the language of the contract will be English.
5.12 All refund payments will be paid to you in Pound Sterling and will match the amount you paid in Pound Sterling for the item(s) and delivery (if the delivery charge is refundable). If an exchange rate is applicable to your order the amount you receive in your local currency will depend on the exchange rate applied by your credit or debit card provider when it receives our refund payment and may therefore be different from the price paid for the item(s) in your local currency. We will not be liable for any losses caused to you as a result of any currency fluctuations or exchange rates applied by your credit or debit card provider.
6. OUR CANCELLATION, RETURNS AND REFUND POLICY
6.1 In order to dispatch orders as quickly as possible, all orders are sent from the warehouse. Therefore, we are unable to accept cancellations prior to Dispatch. If you have any questions regarding an order you can contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0207 193 7816.

You should return the Products to us unused and in the same condition in which you received them together with the original Product packaging.
6.3 After you cancel your order and return the Products, any sum debited by us to your credit/debit card/PayPal will be refunded in full. We will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. Refunds for Products purchased as gifts can only be given to the credit/debit card of the person who placed the order. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of receiving the order back from you.
6.4 If any Product you purchase is damaged, faulty or incorrect, when delivered to you we may offer an exchange or refund as appropriate, in accordance with your legal rights.
