Any changes we may make to these terms and conditions at any time will be posted on this page. Please check back frequently to see any updates or changes we have made.

OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU

When you sign and submit an order for a product and/or services to us, this does not mean we have accepted your order. Our acceptance of the order will take place when we issue you with a written confirmation email at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.

ACCURACY

We make every effort to ensure that details about our products and services and any other information on our website or other promotional material are up to date. However, where information is incorrect or is subject to change, we reserve the right to withdraw or substitute the product or service and to cancel any outstanding orders or bookings with notice to you.

CANCELLATIONS POLICY

We understand that plans can change and we will always try to accommodate your request to amend or cancel your booking. Cancellation notices should be made in writing by post or email or by telephone to the contact details above. Their effective date of your cancellation notice will be the date that the notice is received by us.

Delegate/guest places can be cancelled any time up to and including 28 days before the date of the conference or event and a full refund will be provided, less an administration fee of £50. No refunds will be given for cancellations after that date. Substitutions can be made up to and including 7 days before the event by providing the details of the colleague who wishes to take your place, and this may, in our sole discretion, be subject to an administration fee of £50. In the unlikely event that an event has to be cancelled by us you will be offered a ticket to the rescheduled event or a full refund.

Some promotional prices are non refundable. This will be clearly indicated on the offer whenever this is the case.

In connection with our journal and/or training materials, your cancellation rights depend on what you have ordered and how it is delivered. If we deliver it as digital content to you, and you agree to this when ordering, you will not have a right to change your mind after receipt of the electronic materials. If you have ordered a hard copy, you may cancel your order for it for any reason within 14 days by contacting our customer support team on 0203 096 1228 or at support@aestheticsjournal.com. If you have the right to change your mind, we will provide you with a full refund together with any delivery charges. If you cancel the contract after a hard copy has been dispatched to you or you have received it, you must return it to us by post to Aesthetics Media Limited, Tudor House, 35 Gresse Street, London W1T 1QY, and pay the delivery costs of returning it.

REFUNDS

Refunds will normally be credited to your credit/debit card account within 3-5 working days. Where this is not possible we will send you a cheque or bank transfer within 30 days.

PAYMENT

We accept most major credit cards for online orders. You will be asked to enter your card details and the name and the address of the cardholder when you place the order. These details will be checked and we may hold an order until we receive the correct details. You will be contacted if we find the card or address details to be incorrect. If you have not received a confirmation email, you should not assume that the order has been processed. We recommend that you do not send cash through the post.

PRICING

UK prices shown in GBP include VAT (Value Added Tax)* at the standard UK rate unless otherwise specified. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts to ensure prices are up to date and correct, errors may occur and in this case you will be contacted with confirmation of the correct price before your order is completed.

CREDIT CARD SECURITY

We are PCI DSS compliant and have taken steps to ensure that your payment information is processed confidentially and accurately. Our secure servers protect information by Secure Sockets Layer (‘SSL’), the industry standard encryption technology. SSL works with Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari and Firefox. This encryption makes it virtually impossible for unauthorised parties to read any information that you send us. After your order is processed your encrypted credit card number is deleted. This means that there is no way that someone can obtain your credit card number from us. All details are collected and transferred using secure methods. We do not store your payment details after we have processed your payment. We use a secure payment provider, Eway, to process electronic transactions.

POSTAGE AND DELIVERY

Where ticket postage is applicable, the price quoted includes the cost of postage to your address. We use standard second-class post in the UK and standard airmail post overseas. We do not send tickets by courier or other non-standard postal method. Any additional postal costs will be clearly specified at the time of booking.

SURVEYS AND PRIZE DRAWS

All survey responses are confidential and all information given is studied in an aggregated form only. Only those meeting the qualifying requirements will be allowed to complete the survey. Please note if you enter any competitions on the site, it may be necessary for us to provide some of your personal information to the promoters of the competition in order that you can receive your prize.

Where a prize draw is offered, only those qualifying for and completing the survey will be entered and prizes are limited to one per person. Fraudulent or multiple entries will be disqualified. Winners will be chosen at random from qualifying entries and will be notified by email. Winners have 28 days from receipt of the winners’ email to claim their prize. Our decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. Employees of Aesthetics Media Ltd and their immediate families cannot be entered into any prize draw but may complete a survey if eligible to do so.

LIABILITY

Every effort is made to ensure that the guidance given in the journal, on our website (that is, where the content is added by us) and at our events is correct and accurate, however knowledge and best practice in this field is always subject to constant change and so we cannot guarantee the content and accuracy of our guidance. Practitioners are advised to check the most current advice from their professional bodies and should exercise their own professional judgement in the diagnosis and management of each patient and not rely on our guidance. The opinions expressed in our materials and at our events are not necessarily those of Aesthetics. Please be aware that in connection with the Community part of the site, we are not responsible for, and will not be liable to you or any third party, for the content or accuracy of any Contributions posted by users of the Community as such Contributions do not represent our views.

If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for any direct loss or damage you suffer that is foreseeable as a result of our breach of these terms, however our total liability to you in contract, tort (including negligence) breach of statutory duty or otherwise, shall not exceed the price paid by you for the product and/or service.

EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL

We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under these terms that is caused by an Event Outside Our Control.

An ‘Event Outside Our Control’ means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war, natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks.

If an Event Outside Our Control takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under these terms, we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you, and our obligations under these terms will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the Event Outside Our Control. Either you or us may cancel a contract if an Event Outside Our Control takes place and continues for longer than 4 weeks.

This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations.
