1. Introduction

These are the Terms & Conditions ("Terms of Use") for your use of services or features on the sites owned and controlled by Lintons Beauty World. ("Lintons Beauty"), including Lintons Beauty Website (the "Site"). We may add additional Sites from time to time as we expand our beauty offerings and these Terms of Use will govern those new Sites when added. If you register for a Lintons Beauty account, you will have three pages associated with your Lintons account, including a Profile page, Loves Page and Account page. These pages are not visible to anyone but you.

BY USING THE SITES, YOU SIGNIFY YOUR AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS OF USE, OUR PRIVACY POLICY AND OUR GUIDELINES AND RULES. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THESE, YOU SHOULD NOT USE OUR SITES.

We also like to interact with you on third party sites where we post content or invite your feedback, such as Facebook and Instagram ("Third Party Sites"). Our Terms of Use and other areas of our Sites may provide guidelines ("Guidelines") and rules and regulations ("Rules") in relation to Third Party Sites, but Lintons Beauty does not control those Third Party Sites, and these Terms of Use, do not apply to companies that Lintons Beauty does not own or control, or to the actions of people that Lintons Beauty does not employ or manage. You should always check the terms of use posted on Third Party Sites.

Lintons Beauty reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in the Terms of Use, Guidelines and Rules from time to time at any time, without notice, and in its sole discretion. If Lintons Beauty decides to change these Terms of Use, Lintons Beauty will post a new version on the Sites and update the date set forth above. Any changes or modifications to these Terms of Use, Guidelines or Rules will be effective upon posting of the revisions. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE SITES FOLLOWING POSTING OF ANY CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS AND IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS, YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY CEASE USING THE SITES. For this reason, you should frequently review these Terms of Use, our Guidelines and Rules and any other applicable policies, including their dates, to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Sites.

The short and sweet version:

When you use our Sites, you agree to our rules. And since they’re our Sites and our rules, we can change them whenever we want.

Our products and samples are for personal use, not for resale. That’s why we have a limit on how much you can purchase of certain products or from certain brands.
