These general terms of sale apply to all orders through the website. These terms are subject to modification and updates accordingly. The terms applicable to product orders by customers are those applicable on the date of the order on the website.
I. THE CUSTOMER
To be a Customer of the Web site you must be a consumer, of legal age and with full legal capacity or to be authorised by your parents to order on the Web site. The personal information you give to AKT when opening your customer account, or upon any order you may place, must be complete, accurate and up to date. AKT would not be responsible for undelivered products should the data prove incorrect. AKT reserves the right to cancel any order should the IP address of the customer be located in a country different from the billing and/or delivery address.
II. THE PRODUCTS
The products offered for sale are those featured on the website. AKT makes every effort to accurately present and describe the products to inform the Customer at best. It is, however, possible that the website may contain minor errors, which you recognise and accept. In the event of any non-compliance of the product delivered with its description on the website, AKT agrees to remedy such non-compliance by either exchange or pay back (totally or partly) for the invoiced product.
III. ORDERING PRODUCTS
The acceptance of orders placed on the website is subject to compliance with the procedure set up by AKT. This takes the form of a series of succeeding screen pages indicating the steps to be taken by customers to validate their order. You will have the possibility, before final validation of your order, to verify the order details and the total price, and to correct any possible errors before confirming it and expressing your acceptance. Every confirmed order applies as a sale contract and an acceptance of all the present stipulations.
AKT is entitled to refuse any order made by a customer with whom a dispute exists in connection with the payment of a former order, as well as any order that is not compliant with these general terms of sale. In such cases, AKT will inform the customer by e-mail. Unless the customer contacts us to correct the error or the non-compliance with these general terms of sale, we reserve the right not to process the order.
Once you have validated your order, AKT will promptly confirm receipt by sending you an e-mail to the address provided to us. In that aim, you formally accept the use of e-mail by AKT to confirm the content of your order. This confirmation e-mail will include all of the information provided by you, as well as the accepted price and terms of payment with an indication, as the case may be, of any possible difficulties or reservations in respect of the order. For each product, you will also receive, upon delivery, written confirmation of the price paid and of the shipping fees applicable to you.
IV. PRICE AND TERMS OF PAYMENT

From time to time, we may offer qualified consumers “discount codes”, “promotional codes”, “promo codes”, or “offer codes” through a variety of promotional activities and communications (collectively referred to herein as “offer codes”) that are redeemable towards a purchase on the Site, subject to certain exclusions or any other restrictions as may be determined and communicated by us. Only valid offer codes provided or promoted by AKT will be honoured at checkout. Codes supplied or promoted by third-parties unauthorised by us (including any unauthorised third party websites) will not be considered valid. Each offer code provided by us is non-transferable and valid for single use on an item (or items) of merchandise as determined by us. Offer codes may not be combined and customers are limited to the use of a single offer code per order. For online purchases, the code must be entered in the ‘offer code’ field prior to checkout.

The value of any offer code will not be refunded or credited back if any or all of the merchandise is returned. Expiry dates may apply to each offer code. Offer codes are void if copied, transferred, sold, exchanged or expired, and where prohibited. Requests not complying with all offer code requirements will not be honoured. From time to time, we may also engage spokespeople, influencers, bloggers, or other individuals or entities who have been compensated or incentivised to speak on behalf of the brand. When you receive an offer code via a third-party source, such as a television or radio show host, please note that such individuals may have been compensated by us for their statements.
PLEASE NOTE: Additional discount codes on already discounted subscription products will only last for the first (or next) order. Subsequent subscription charges will automatically return to the original price.

Customers must add the sample size to the cart and enter the discount before paying. The discount cannot be applied after the order has been made. The discount code takes £4 off the price of the sample and customers must pay for shipping.

In the territories outside of the United Kingdom, it is recalled that delivery may be delayed for so long as customs formalities and duties have not been carried out or paid by you, and you agree to this.
To ensure the lead times can be met, you should check that you have provided complete and accurate information concerning the delivery address (such as road number, building number, staircase number, access codes, names and/or interphone numbers, etc.). Inaccurate information may result in longer delivery times or re-shipments.
