Our UK VAT registration number is GB777947160 and our Republic of Ireland VAT registration number is IE3346288LH.

2. How the contract is formed between you and us

2.1 You will be required to have a account in order to set up any Subscription Service. You may request to set up a Subscription Service for certain Product(s) advertised as being available for subscription 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 subscription request by clicking the "Proceed to Secure Payment" button on the "Payment details" page. No amends can be made by you to your order after this point.

2.2 After submitting your subscription request, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received and accepted your request to set up a subscription and giving you an order number and a summary of your Subscription Service (the Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us for the Subscription Service will be formed when we send the Dispatch Confirmation to you.

2.3 Each subsequent Subscription Service order will be confirmed via a Dispatch Confirmation once the Products have been dispatched. The contract will relate only to those Products which are detailed in the 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; or
  • there is a problem with authorisation of your PayPal account.

3. Subsequent Subscription Service orders

3.1 Once you have set up your Subscription Service, we will send you the Product(s) you have subscribed for at the frequency you have indicated. You will receive a Dispatch Confirmation for each subsequent Subscription Service order.

3.2 Your Subscription Service will remain in effect until it is cancelled. You can cancel your Subscription Service at any time by visiting the Subscriptions section with the My Account area. If you cancel your Subscription Service and then reactivate it, the discount applied to any Product(s) may not be the same discount in effect at the time of cancellation.

3.3 If a subsequent Subscription Service order fails (for example, the Product is out of stock or if there is a problem with authorisation of your PayPal account), we will try a further two times to generate the order for you. We will send you an email each time. If the order fails three times your Subscription Service will automatically be cancelled and we will send you an email to advise you of this.

3.4 If any Product is no longer available, we will notify you of this. You will then be able to cancel your Subscription Service and set up a new Subscription Service for an alternative Product if you wish.

4. Delivery

4.1 For Subscription Service orders we can only deliver the Product(s) by our standard delivery method.

4.2 We will dispatch all Products comprised in your Subscription Service order at the same time albeit on some occasions in multiple packages. Delivery will be made to the delivery address specified in your order. Please see Delivery Information for details of where we deliver. We cannot deliver items within the same order to multiple addresses.

5. Risk and Ownership

5.1 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.

5.2 Ownership of Products will pass to you on: delivery of the Products; or us receiving full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, whichever is the later.

6. Price and Payment

6.1 The price of any Product(s) will be as quoted on the Site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. The discount for the Subscription Service will be calculated based on the full selling price of any applicable Product(s). The amount charged to your PayPal account for each Subscription Service order will be as detailed in the Dispatch Confirmation and will be the price of the Product(s) on the day your order is processed, less the applicable Subscription Service discount. These prices include VAT at the applicable local rates.

6.2 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. Superdrug reserves the right to change the promotional benefits available with the Subscription Service, including the Products to which such promotional benefits apply and the discount amounts at any time at its sole discretion. All changes will apply to future Subscription Service orders and any such changes will be notified to you in advance of your next order.

6.3 We cannot complete your order until you have paid for it in full. Payment can only be made by PayPal by completing the relevant details on the "Payment details" page. You can make payment in full or in part for your first Subscription Service order via redemption of your Health & Beautycard points. You cannot use your Health & Beautycard points to pay or part-pay for any subsequent Subscription Service order. Please see Health & Beautycard Terms & Conditions for further details.

6.4 The Site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on the 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 the 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.

6.5 From time to time the Site or our stores may offer discounts on selected Product(s) which may mean that these Product(s) will be cheaper than the subscription price. You will not be able to sign up to the Subscription Service at these special promotional prices.

6.6 We may from time to time, at our sole discretion, add or remove any Product from the Subscription Service.
