MAC UK - Online Returns and Cancellation Policies & Procedures
Date of Last Update: March 1st, 2018
We hope that you are delighted with your order, but if for some reason you are not we have set out below a summary of your rights in the event that you wish to return a product. Full details in relation to such rights can be found in our MAC UK - General Terms and Conditions for Online Product Sales).
If you made your purchase through a partnered retail location, such as an airport or department store, then any return will need to be made in accordance with the returns/cancellation policy of the relevant retailer and should not be returned directly to us. Similarly, if you purchased products on the MAC website or in a MAC store, you must return them in accordance with the procedure outlined here and not directly to a partnered retail location.
1. Your Cancellation Rights
As you are a consumer and have made an order on-line you may, in accordance with the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, cancel your order and obtain a refund (or exchange) within 14 working days from delivery.
Within the order packaging, you will find a Cancellation Form with details of your order and the cancellation process. Alternatively, you can access the Cancellation Form here or call our Customer Services Team on 0808 281 0230
Unless the goods are faulty, you will be required to arrange and pay for the cost of returning them to us. Please ensure you obtain a proof of postage when you do so (in case you need to show you have returned the goods, in the unlikely event that we do not receive the returned parcel). Customers wishing to return fragrance items should have regard to any labelling and packaging guidelines produced by Royal Mail or any other courier that is used.
Alternatively online orders can be returned at any MAC store (excluding department stores and airports) with your original order confirmation. Online orders will not be able to be returned in store if you paid by PayPal.
If you require a refund we will refund the price paid by you for the goods (including the initial standard delivery charge, but not the additional cost of any premium delivery option that was chosen) within 14 days after the day on which we receive the Products back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Products back to us, provided that you have returned the goods to us within 14 working days of delivery to you or your notifying us of cancellation.
Refunds will only be made against the original credit/debit card used.
We will not provide a full refund if the goods show signs of unreasonable use. In such circumstances, we will notify you that a reduced refund amount will be available or you can choose to arrange for such goods to be returned to you within 28 days of our notification.
Your right to return goods does not apply to goods
- made to your specification or
- which have been clearly personalised (e.g. by being engraved) or
- which by reason of their nature cannot be returned or are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly or
- where sealed goods have been supplied which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons, if they become unsealed after delivery.
2. Your Rights if there is a Problem with a Product
In addition to the rights described above (and in accordance with your rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015), if the goods you receive are damaged or faulty, or not what you originally ordered we will be happy to exchange the items or offer you a refund.
Please notify us as soon as possible by calling our Customer Services Team on 0808 281 0230
