Australian Consumer Law
2.1. Under the Australian Consumer Law:
Our goods and services come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law.
For major failures with the product/service, you may be entitled:
to a replacement for major failures with goods.
to a refund for the unused portion, or to compensation for its reduced value.
If a product or service within the warranty period which you purchased from us has a failure which does not amount to a major failure (as defined in the Australian Consumer Law) then you may still be entitled to have the goods repaired.
2.2. The Australian Consumer Law provides a set of Consumer Guarantees which protect consumers when they buy products and services. If the Australian Consumer Law applies, then we cannot avoid the Consumer Guarantees which it provides. If there is an inconsistency between this Policy and the Australian Consumer Law, the Australian Consumer Law will prevail.
2.3. Further information about the Australian Consumer Law and these Consumer Guarantees is available from the website of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
Cancellation and Change of Mind
3.1. We do not offer refunds for change of mind or if you find the same product or service cheaper elsewhere. It is important to note that Consumer Guarantees do not apply if you have changed your mind, found the item cheaper elsewhere, decided you did not like the purchase, or had no use for it, so please check the product listing carefully at the time of purchase.
3.2 We may offer a refund if a product ordered by the customer is incorrect. However, we will not offer a full refund for incorrect orders made by customers and a 20% restocking fee will apply to the total product value.

6.3. If the Returned Product is too large, too heavy, or otherwise too difficult to be removed and returned by you, and is believed to be eligible for a repair, replacement, or refund under the terms of this Policy (including under the Australian Consumer Law), then we will organise for the postage, shipping, transportation, or collection of the Returned Product, at our cost or provide a service agent where possible to your location.
