Access To & Use Of Our Site
Access to our site is free of charge and is provided “as is” and on an “as available” basis. We may alter, suspend or discontinue our site (or any part of it) at any time and without notice. We will not be liable to you in any way if our site (or any part of it) is unavailable at any time and for any period.
Consumers may only purchase Products through Our Site if they are at least 18 years of age.
These Terms and Conditions do not apply to customers purchasing products in the course of business. If you are a business customer, please consult us.
If products are being ordered from outside Australia, import duties and taxes may be incurred once your products reach their destination. We are not responsible for such charges and we undertake to make no calculations or estimates in this regard. If you are buying internationally, you are advised to contact your local customs authorities for further details on costs and procedures. As the buyer of the products, you will also be the importer of record and as such should ensure that your purchase is in full compliance with the laws of the country into which the products are being imported. Please be aware that products may be inspected on arrival at port for customs purposes and we cannot guarantee that the packaging of your products will be free of signs of tampering. Please also be aware that Australia consumer protection laws may not apply.
Products, Pricing & Availability
We make all efforts to ensure that all descriptions and graphical representations of products available from us correspond to the actual products. Please note, however, the following:
- Images of products are for illustrative purposes only. There may be slight variations in colour between the image of a product and the actual product sold due to differences in computer displays and lighting conditions;
- Images and/or descriptions of packaging are for illustrative purposes only, the actual packaging of products may vary.
Please note that sub-Clause 1 under section “Products, Pricing and Availability” does not exclude our responsibility for mistakes due to negligence on our part and refers only to minor variations of the correct products, not to different products altogether. Please refer to section “Faulty, Damaged or Incorrect Products” if you receive incorrect products (i.e. Products that are not as described).
We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on our site are correct at the time of going online. We reserve the right to change prices and to add, alter, or remove special offers from time to time and as necessary. Changes in price will not affect any order that you have already placed (please note sub-Clause 8 under section “Products, Pricing and Availability” regarding GST).
All prices are checked by us when we process your order. In the unlikely event that we have shown incorrect pricing information, please note the following:
- We will contact you before proceeding with your order to inform you of the mistake and to ask you how you wish to proceed. We will give you the option to purchase the products at the correct price or to cancel your Order (or the affected part thereof). We will not proceed with processing your order until you respond. If we do not receive a response from you within 7 days, we will treat your order as cancelled and notify you of the same in writing.
In the event that the price of products you have ordered changes between your order being placed and us processing that order and taking payment, you will be charged the price shown on our Site at the time of placing your order. All prices on our site include GST. If the GST rate changes between your order being placed and us taking payment, the amount of GST payable will be automatically adjusted when taking payment.
Delivery charges are not included in the price of products on our site. For more information on delivery charges, please refer to the cost on the site.
Orders – How Contracts Are Formed
Our site will guide you through the ordering process. Before submitting your order to us you will be given the opportunity to review your order and amend it. Please ensure that you have checked your order carefully before submitting it.
No part of our site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your Order constitutes a contractual offer that we may, at our sole discretion, accept. Our acknowledgement of receipt of your order does not mean that we have accepted it. Our acceptance is indicated by us sending you a Dispatch Confirmation by email. Only once we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation will there be a legally binding contract between us and you.
Dispatch Confirmations shall contain the following information:
- Confirmation of the products ordered.
- Fully itemized pricing for the products ordered including, where appropriate, taxes, delivery and other additional charges; and
- Estimated delivery date(s).
If we, for any reason, do not accept or cannot fulfil your order, no payment shall be taken under normal circumstances. If we have taken payment any such sums will be refunded to you as soon as possible.
Payment for products and related delivery charges must always be made in advance and you will be prompted to pay during the order process. We accept various methods of payment as indicated on our site.
Delivery, Risk & Ownership
All products purchased will be delivered and shipped from Australia via Australia Post. After orders are dispatched we generally ask for 9 business days for your order to arrive to you. (Subject to delays caused by events outside of our control for which see section “Events Outside of Our Control”
In the unlikely event that we fail to deliver the products within 30 calendar days of our dispatch confirmation (unless otherwise agreed as under sub-Clause 1 in section “Delivery, Risk and Ownership“), if any of the following apply you may cancel your order immediately:
- We have refused to deliver your products; or
- In light of all relevant circumstances, delivery within that time period was essential; or
- You told us when ordering the products that delivery within that time period was essential.
If you do not wish to cancel under sub-Clause 2 in section “Delivery, Risk and Ownership” or if none of the specified circumstances apply, you may specify a new (reasonable) delivery date. If we fail to meet the new deadline, you may then cancel your order.
You may cancel all or part of your order under sub-Clauses 2 or 3 in section “Delivery, Risk and Ownership“. Any sums that you have already paid for cancelled products and their delivery will be refunded to you. Please note that if any cancelled products are delivered to you, you must return them to us or arrange with us for their collection. In either case, we will bear the cost of returning the cancelled products.
Delivery shall be deemed complete once we have delivered the products to the address (including, where relevant, any alternative address) provided in your order.
The risk in the products shall remain with us until they come into the physical possession of you or a person identified by you to take possession of the products. Ownership of the products passes to you once we have received payment in full of all sums due (including any applicable delivery charges).
Faulty, Damaged or Incorrect Products
By law, we must provide products that are of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, as described at the time of purchase, in accordance with any pre-contract information we have provided, and that match any samples or models that you have seen or examined (unless we have made you aware of any differences). If any products you have purchased do not comply and, for example, have faults or are damaged when you receive them, or if you receive incorrect products, please contact us as soon as reasonably possible, and in any event within 3 days, to inform us of the fault, damage or error, and to arrange for a refund or replacement.
Beginning on the day that you receive the products (and ownership of them) you have a 30 Calendar Day right to reject the products and to receive a full refund if they do not conform as stated above. Alternatively, you may request a replacement. We will bear any associated costs and will replace them within a reasonable time. In certain circumstances, where a replacement is impossible, we may instead offer you a full refund. If you request a replacement during the 30 Calendar Day rejection period, that period will be suspended while we replace them and will resume on the day that you receive the replacement. If less than 7 Calendar Days remain out of the original period, it will be extended to 7 Calendar Days. If, after a replacement, the products still do not conform (or if we cannot do so as previously described, or have failed to act within a reasonable time or without significant inconvenience to you), you may have the right either to keep the products at a reduced price, or to reject them in exchange for a refund.
Please also note that you may not return products to us under this section (Faulty, Damaged or Incorrect Products) merely because you have changed your mind. Please refer to section “Cancelling and Returning Products if You Change Your Mind” for more details.
To return products to us for any reason under this section (Faulty, Damaged or Incorrect Products), please initially send an email to [email protected] or call +61 (0) 3 8376 1180. We will be fully responsible for the costs of returning products under this section (Faulty, Damaged or Incorrect Products) and will reimburse you where appropriate.
Refunds (whether full or partial, including reductions in price) under this section (Faulty, Damaged or Incorrect Products) will be issued within 14 Calendar Days of the day on which We agree that you are entitled to the refund.
Any and all refunds issued under this section (Faulty, Damaged or Incorrect Products) will include all delivery costs paid by you when the products were originally purchased.

Cancelling & Returning Products If You Change Your Mind
In addition, we offer a further Goodwill Guarantee which extends the legal cooling-off period within which you may change your mind, cancel, and return the products as detailed below.
- If the products are being delivered to you in a single installment (whether single or multiple items), the legal cooling-off period ends 14 calendar days after the day on which you (or someone you nominate) receive(s) the Products. Our Goodwill Guarantee extends this period to a total of 30 calendar days.
- If the products are being delivered in separate installments on separate days, the legal cooling-off period ends 14 calendar days after the day on which you (or someone you nominate) receive(s) the final instalment of Products. Our Goodwill Guarantee extends this period to a total of 30 calendar days.
- If you wish to exercise your right to cancel under this section (Cancelling and Returning Products if You Change Your Mind), you must inform us of your decision within the cooling off period as extended by Our Goodwill Guarantee. You may do so in any way you wish. Cancellation by email or by post is effective from the date on which you send us your message. Please note that the cooling off period lasts for whole calendar days. If, for example, you send us an email or letter by 23:59:59 on the final day of the cooling off period, your cancellation will be valid and accepted.

Please note that you may lose your legal right to cancel under this section (Cancelling and Returning Products If You Change Your Mind) in the following circumstances:

- If the products have been inseparably mixed with other items (according to their nature) after you have received them.
Please ensure that you return products to us no more than 14 calendar days after the day on which you have informed us that you wish to cancel under this section (Cancelling and Returning Products if You Change Your Mind) but in any event before the expiry of the Goodwill Guarantee.
You may return products to us by post or another suitable delivery service of your choice. Please note that you must bear the costs of returning products to us if cancelling under this section (Cancelling and Returning Products if You Change Your Mind). The cost of returning products to us should not normally exceed the cost of having them originally delivered to you if you use the same carrier.
Refunds under this section (Cancelling and Returning Products if You Change Your Mind) will be issued to you within 14 calendar days of the following:
- The day on which we receive the products back; or
- The day on which you inform Us (supplying evidence) that you have sent the products back (if this is earlier than the day we receive the products back); or
- If we have not yet provided a Dispatch Confirmation or have not yet dispatched the products, the day on which you inform us that you wish to cancel the contract.
Refunds under this section (Cancelling and Returning Products if You Change Your Mind) may be subject to deductions in the following circumstances:
- Refunds may be reduced for any diminished value in the products resulting from your excessive handling of them (e.g. no more than would be permitted in a shop). Please note that if we issue a refund before we have received the products and have had a chance to inspect them, we may subsequently charge you an appropriate sum if We find that the Products have been handled excessively.
- Standard delivery charges will be reimbursed in full as part of your refund. Please note, however, that we cannot reimburse for premium delivery. We will only reimburse the equivalent standard delivery costs when issuing refunds under this section (Cancelling and Returning Products if You Change Your Mind). We are required by law to reimburse the cost of ‘basic’ or the least expensive delivery cost irrespective of the actual delivery option chosen by you in respect of the statutory 14 cooling off period. These costs will not be reimbursed if you are returning under the Goodwill Guarantee.
Refunds under this section (Cancelling and Returning Products if You Change Your Mind) will be made using the same payment method that you used when ordering the products.
