as the downloadable digital goods (recipes etc). Please check through the
listing, and do contact us with any queries prior to purchasing.

Soak Rochford Ltd are not liable for any changes required to Cosmetic Product Safety Reports (CPSR’s) after they have been issued so long as it is not the fault of Soak Rochford. Soak Rochford will however ensure that any wrongs are righted on a new product report, but if for example changes to the law effect an existing report (such as allergens becoming banned in fragrances, or government restructuring or altering what is and is not legal) then it is down to the responsible person to ensure they are operating legally and compliantly.

All of our digital goods are written in the English language and can be found
in the “downloads” section under “my account” once you are logged in.

Contracts
Customers who buy our assessments are responsible for sourcing the correct
ingredients. If an assessment states that specific colours/fragrances/bases etc
must be purchased from Soak Rochford, then it is the customers responsibility
to ensure this happens. We will not be held liable for anyone breaking this agreement,
and will be unable to support you should you break this agreement.

The sales contract between Soak Rochford and the buyer commences for each new
transaction placed once the payment method has cleared. It ends once the items
have been tracked to the delivery address, displayed as delivered, or received
by the buyer.

Damages
Damages to parcels, or missing items from parcels must be reported to us within 7 days of receiving. Damages
must also not be used unless we advise to. We take damages very seriously and
will very often complete a full investigation into what has happened to try to
prevent it in the future. We may need you to return the item to us to assist us
with the investigation. If an item has been used prior to our agreement, then we
may not be able to replace or refund the item.
