2.7 You will receive from us a Confirmation of Order by email shortly after you have placed your Order. The Contract between us for the purchase of the Products will not be formed until you receive an Order Complete Email confirmation from us. A binding agreement comes into existence between you and us once we provide you with an Order Complete Email. No changes to these Sales Terms will be effective unless we both agree to the changes in writing.
2.8 We do not warrant that the quality of any Products, Services, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you will meet your expectations, or that any errors in the Service will be corrected.
3. AVAILABILITY AND CANCELLATION
3.1 All purchases made with us are subject to availability. We do our best to keep in stock most Products and to keep the Site up to date with the availability of our Products.
3.2 We may in our discretion refuse to accept an Order from you for any reason, including but not limited to:
(a) unavailability of stock, or we may offer you or a store credit or an alternative Product (in which case we can, if necessary, require you to re-submit your Order); and
(b) we suspect that you might on sell the Products to other consumers.
3.3 Until the time when we provide you with an Order Complete Email, we reserve the right to refuse to process your Order and you have the right to cancel your Order. If we or you have cancelled your Order before it has been accepted, we will promptly refund any payment already made by you to your original payment method.
3.4 If you wish to cancel your Order, please contact our Customer Service Team by emailing email@example.com. No cancellation fees will apply. Once an Order has been processed and you have received an Order Complete Email, the Order cannot be cancelled and the item must instead be returned to us in accordance with our Faulty Product Returns or Other Returns clauses.
3.5 We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to limit the sales of the Products to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis. We reserve the right to limit the quantities of any Products that we offer.
4.1 We aim to deliver Products to you at the place of delivery requested by you within the time indicated by us at the time of your Order, but any delivery times we provide are an estimate only. We usually dispatch your Order within one Business Day of the Order being received by us.
4.2 We will try to let you know if we expect to be unable to meet our estimated delivery date, but, to the extent permitted by law, we will not be liable to you for any losses, liabilities, costs, damages, charges or expenses arising out of late delivery.
4.3 You may grant us an ‘authority to leave’ when placing your Order. If you do, you understand and agree that this authority to leave gives us and/or our couriers permission to leave the Order in question unattended by the front door – or, where applicable, at the reception or concierge’s desk, or as per your instructions – of the delivery address without obtaining a signature confirming delivery at the delivery location. In these circumstances, you understand and agree that by granting us authority to leave, we and our couriers are released of all responsibility and liability for the Orders delivered and left unattended, and that this responsibility and liability transfers to you on delivery.
4.4 By ordering a Product to an address you are indicating that you will be able to receive a delivery there within a reasonable time frame. If you are not able to receive a delivery, the couriers may provide instructions on re-delivery or collection from the carrier. If delivery or collection is delayed through your unreasonable refusal to accept delivery or if you do not (within two weeks of our first attempt to deliver the Product to you) accept delivery or collect the Product from the carrier, then we may (without affecting any other right or remedy available to us) do either or both of the following:
(a) charge you for our reasonable storage fees and other costs reasonably incurred by us; or
(b) no longer make the Product available for delivery or collection and notify you that we are cancelling the applicable Order, in which case we will refund to you, your credit or debit card company or other payment method as applicable any money paid to us, less our reasonable administration charges (including for attempting to deliver and then returning the Product, and any storage fees as provided for above).
4.5 Please note that it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations. If this is the case, we will inform you using the contact details that you provide to us when you make your Order and arrange for cancellation of the Order or delivery to an alternative delivery address.
4.6 Unless otherwise specified by you, all risk in the Product shall pass to you upon delivery. If delivery is delayed, risk shall pass at the date when delivery would have occurred. From the time when risk passes to you, we will not be liable for loss or destruction of the Product.
4.7 You must take care when opening the Product so as not to damage it, particularly when using any sharp instruments.
5. AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW
5.1 ACL: Certain legislation including the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) in the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) and similar consumer protection laws and regulations may confer you with rights, warranties, guarantees and remedies relating to the provision of services by us to you which cannot be excluded, restricted or modified (Statutory Rights).
5.2 Goods & Services: If you are a consumer as defined in the ACL, the following notice applies to you: “Our Products and Services come with warranties and guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law (Consumer Guarantees). You are entitled to a replacement or a refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the Products repaired or replaced if the Products fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure. You are also entitled to have Services remedied if they are not rendered with due care and skill or they are not fit for purpose and the failure does not amount to a major failure.”
5.3 Nothing in these Terms excludes your Statutory Rights as a consumer under the ACL. You agree that our liability for Products provided to a person or entity defined as a “consumer” under the ACL is governed solely by the ACL and these Sales Terms. We exclude all conditions and warranties implied by custom, law or statute except for your Statutory Rights.
6. FAULTY PRODUCT RETURNS
6.1 We aim to provide you with Products of the highest standard and quality. If you have received a Product with a defect, please contact our Customer Service Team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org within seven days of receipt so we can guide you through the returns process and help resolve the problem as swiftly as possible. In order to assist the return process, you may be required to send us images of the damage, defect or fault for preliminary assessment.
6.2 If the Product is confirmed to have a defect, we will replace the Product or refund the price of the Product to your original payment method at your request. If the Product is found not to have a defect or deemed out of warranty, we will ship the Product back to you.
6.3 It does not constitute a defect, if in our reasonable opinion, the Product has, following the sale to you, become of unacceptable quality due to fair wear and tear, misuse, failure to use in accordance with manufacturers’ instructions, using it in an abnormal way or failure to take reasonable care.
6.4 We will not be able to refund any delivery fees that you have paid at purchase to have the Product shipped to you, unless the Product is faulty.
7. OTHER RETURNS

Please note that only one Voucher can be used per Order.

If the credit of a gift card is insufficient for the Order you wish to make, you may make up the difference through payment by other means. You may use as many gift cards as you wish in paying for an Order, and gift cards may be used in conjunction with one voucher per Order.
(e) If an Order made using a gift card is cancelled or returned, the portion of the purchase attributable to the gift card will be refunded as a store credit only.
8.4 Conditions for using store credit
(a) Store credits are applied to the account registered with the same email address used to place your Order. Store credits cannot be transferred to other accounts.
