From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Site, or our entire site, to users who have registered with us. We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms and Conditions.

Product Details and other Content
We take all reasonable care to ensure that all product details, commentary and other materials or content appearing on the Site are correct at the time when they were uploaded onto the Site. However, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we do not warrant that the Site, any service or feature of the Site and the product details, commentary and other materials or content available on the Site are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free or that the content is appropriate for any country that the Site may be accessed from outside the UK. Product details, commentary and other materials or content posted on the Site are not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed. To the extent permitted by law, we and other members of our group of companies and third parties connected to us hereby expressly exclude all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by any visitor to the Site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.
Amendments to these Terms and Conditions
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to revise or update these Terms and Conditions at any time by amending this page and you are expected to check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we have made, as they are binding on you. Some of the provisions contained in these Terms and Conditions may also be superseded by provisions or notices published elsewhere on the Site. Any changes are effective immediately upon posting to the Site and your continued use of the Site constitutes your agreement to all such revised or updated Terms and Conditions.
Suspension and Termination
We may, with or without prior notice, terminate any of the rights granted by these Terms and Conditions. You shall comply immediately with any termination or other notice, including, as applicable, by ceasing all use of the Site. We will determine, in our discretion, whether there has been a breach or suspected breach of any part of these Terms and Conditions through your use of the Site and when a breach has occurred, we may take such action as we deem appropriate including taking all or any of the following actions:
- Immediate, temporary or permanent withdrawal of your right to use the Site.

Relationship between you and Collection Cosmetics
Nothing contained in these Terms and Conditions shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between you and Collection Cosmetics or any of its agents or representatives.
Remedies for breach
A waiver by us of any particular breach of these Terms and Conditions or any failure by us to exercise a particular remedy in relation to such breach will not constitute a waiver of other breaches or remedies available to us. The rights and remedies provided by these Terms and Conditions are cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law.
In the event that any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall be illegal, unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or be so held by any applicable court decision, it is to be treated as being severed from these Terms and Conditions in the relevant jurisdiction, but such illegality, unenforceability or invalidity shall not render these Terms and Conditions illegal, unenforceable or invalid as a whole. We reserve the right to amend or replace such provision with one that is legal, valid and enforceable in the relevant jurisdiction and which achieves, to the extent possible, our original objectives and intent as reflected in the original provision. The legality, validity and enforceability of the provision in any other jurisdiction will not be affected.
Linking to the Site
You may link to the home page of the Site, provided you do so in a way that is fair and legal and does not damage our reputation or take advantage of it, but you must not establish a link in such a way as to suggest any form of association, approval, affiliation, sponsorship or endorsement on our part where none exists. You must not establish a link from any website that is not owned by you. The Site must not be framed on any other site, nor may you create a link to any part of the Site other than the home page. We reserve the right to withdraw linking permission without notice.

Linking from the Site
Where the Site contains links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your information only.

We will report any actual or suspected breach of law to the relevant law enforcement authorities and we will co-operate with those authorities by disclosing your identity to them. In the event of such a breach, your right to use the Site will cease immediately. We will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by any distributed denial-of-service attack, viruses or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment, computer programs, data or other proprietary material due to your use of the Site or to your downloading of any material posted on it, or on any website linked to it.
The material displayed on the Site is provided without any guarantees, conditions or warranties as to its quality, accuracy, non-infringement of third party rights, or compatibility with your computer.

We may from time to time provide interactive services on the Site, including but not limited to: chat rooms; bulletin boards; blog pages; photo diaries; research polls and questionnaires; and links/feeds to and from third party websites such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
Where we provide interactive services, we will provide information about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical). We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on the Site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation and what kind of moderation to use). However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on the Site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not fool proof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them. Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
These content standards apply to any and all material which you and other users contribute to the Site ("Contribution"), and to any interactive services associated with it. You must comply with the spirit of the following standards as well as the letter and the standards apply to each part of any Contribution as well as to its whole.
