INFORMATION ON OUR WEBSITE

COLOUR REPRODUCTION

We have made every effort to reproduce colours on our website as accurately as possible. However, different computers and mobile devices reproduce colours in slightly different ways, and so exact colour matches are not yet possible over the Internet. This means that when you order products from our website, colours may differ from what you see on the screen. If you are not satisfied with the colour of the item you have ordered, we operate a returns policy (see our ‘Returns and Refunds’ page for more information).

OFFERS AND PROMOTIONS

Where we refer to 'bestselling' products on lizearle.com, it is based on the number of products sold online during the last 7 days. Where a product is labelled 'bestselling', it means its sales have exceeded all others in the particular product list or search field it features in. A 'top-rated product' is a product with the highest star rating based on ratings and reviews made by our customers. Our 'new products' highlight the most recently launched products on lizearle.com. Our 'featured products' are those we have chosen to highlight and 'our favourite' products are ‘our favourites’ out of those sold on lizearle.com

WHEN YOU BUY PRODUCTS FROM OUR WEBSITE

ACCEPTANCE OF ORDERS 

Working with industry-leading secure payment processors, we validate your order and the payment details you submit to us before your order can be accepted. 

If your order passes our validation checks we will send you an order confirmation email, this is our acceptance of your order and it brings into existence a legally binding agreement between us. 

Liz Earle reserves the right to restrict the number of items available for sale to any individual customer. All orders are subject to availability.

PRICE AND PAYMENT

We have taken great care to ensure the prices published on our website are accurate. Prices may change over time, so if you use your Order History within 'My account' as a way of re-ordering items, prices on your previous order may no longer be valid. However, the correct prices will be applied when you select an item from the Order History and add to your current basket. All prices include VAT where appropriate. Promotions and prices you see in Liz Earle stores and other third parties do not always apply to lizearle.com, and vice versa. 

We accept payment by most major credit or debit cards and PayPal. Payment will be debited from your account before the dispatch of your purchase.

All orders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer.  If the issuer of your payment refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
