Purpose of the Site

The purpose of the Site is to provide you with information about The Body Shop, our products and stores, the campaigns that we support and the activities we undertake. In addition, you may be able to purchase products and services through the Site.

Product and Service Availability

Reference to any product or service on the Site does not constitute an offer to sell or supply that product or service and does not mean that the product or service is available or that the name and description of any product in your local shop will be the same as that included on the Site. Buth-Na-Bodaige, Inc. controls and operates the Site from its headquarters in San Francisco, California, in the United States of America. We in no way imply that the materials on our Site are appropriate or available for use outside of the United States and we will not be able to fill your order if you require shipping outside of the United States.

Inventory information is generally available on the Site for domestic (U.S.) merchandise. This information can be used to estimate the likelihood that merchandise will be shipped immediately after you place your order. However, we cannot guarantee that a product listed as "In stock" will actually ship right away, as inventory can change significantly from day to day. In rare cases, a product may be in stock when you place your order, and sold out by the time your order is processed. However, if an item that is marked "In stock" in your shopping cart when you place your order is sold out at the time your order is processed, we will notify you by e-mail that your order will not be filled and your credit card will not be charged. You may also sign up for our "E-mail Me When Available" service and we will send you an email when your product becomes available. All information provided to us in connection with our "E-mail Me When Available" service is subject to our Privacy Policy.

Colors

We try to display the colors of our products as accurately as possible. Nevertheless, as the actual colors you see will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any color will be accurate.

Backorders (out of stock)

Backordered merchandise includes items that are not currently in stock. In most cases, these items are on order from our manufacturing facilities or suppliers. In some cases, we are researching or waiting for stock information from one or more of our suppliers.

The Body Shop will make every effort to get the item(s) back in stock as soon as possible. If we haven't been able to locate and ship the item(s) to you in 30 days, an order status email will be sent to you. If for any reason we determine that a backordered item is no longer available, we will cancel the item from your order and notify you via email. We will not charge your credit card until the item ships. Therefore, your credit card needs no adjustment upon order cancellation.

Returns

We guarantee your satisfaction with all The Body Shop merchandise. You may return any of our products, with your receipt, for a merchandise exchange, credit, or a full refund of the purchase price (minus shipping and handling charges). If you receive a damaged or defective item, we will promptly send you a replacement or issue you a full refund after you have returned the damaged or defective product. You will not be charged any additional shipping or handling fees for replacement of such damaged or defective shipments. Please visit our Returns & Exchanges Policy to read more about how to returns.

If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we shall promptly issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.

Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason or for no reason at all. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any product or service.
