LINKS TO THIRD PARTY SITES
This website may contain hyperlinks to websites operated by parties other than Phorest. These hyperlinks are provided for your reference only.

The following conditions apply to bookings of services made by you through this website.
MAKING A RESERVATION
When booking a third party’s services on Phorest you may be required to pay a non refundable reservation fee/deposit using either a credit or a debit card. The amount of the reservation fee/deposit will depend on the total cost of your booking and will range from €/£/$0.50 to €/£/$1.50 (inclusive of VAT or any other taxes that may apply). Phorest use a third party payment gateway company to process this payment.
RESPONSIBILITY OF ACCURACY OF INFORMATION TO SERVICE PROVIDERS
Services and Treatments are carried out by trusted third parties who are the services providers. When making a reservation, it is your responsibility to tell the service providers directly about any physical or mental condition that you have and that may require special facilities.
A cancellation of an appointment will result in loss of the reservation fee/deposit. The amount lost depends on the total cost of your booking but will be no more than €/£/$1.50. If a booking is partially cancelled (one or more, but not all treatments that are part of the booking) the reservation fee/deposit will not change. If the service provider cancels the whole booking the reservation fee/deposit will be credited to your Phorest account. This credit can be used to reserve future bookings on Phorest. If the services provider only partially cancels a booking your reservation/deposit fee will not change. Users may cancel bookings made online up to 24 hours in advance of the time of the appointment online by going to their Phorest account. If an appointment has not been cancelled with 24 hours notice the salon has the right to charge users the balance of the appointment cost (i.e. the payment due in the salon which equals the total cost of the appointment minus the reservation fee/deposit paid online). Users who cancel appointments with more than 24 hours notice will only lose their reservation fee/deposit. By making a reservation with your credit card or bank card, you agree that if you cancel your reservation with less than 24 hours notice or if you fail to arrive by your agreed appointment time, you authorise the services provider to charge to your credit card or debit card without further reference to you an amount lower or equal to your booking or an amount that might be set out in the service provider’s terms and conditions. For this purpose your credit or debit card will be securely stored. Phorest does not accept responsibility for cancellations by the user or by the services provider regardless of the circumstances in which the cancellation is made. Phorest shall not accept any liability for losses, additional expenses or any claim whatsoever due to changes in salon services, sickness, weather, strikes or any other cause. All such losses, additional expenses or claims will be borne by you unless otherwise agreed between you and the service provider.
WHEN A RESERVATION IS CONFIRMED
Phorest does not accept responsibility for cancellations by the user or by the services provider. Phorest does not accept any liability for losses, additional expenses or any claim because of changes in salon services, sickness, weather, strikes or any other cause. All losses, extra fees or claims will be your responsibility unless otherwise agreed between you and the service provider.
