Our liability is governed solely by the ACL and these Terms.
(b) Goods: If you are a consumer as defined in the ACL, the following notice applies to you: "Our goods 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 goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.”

We expressly disclaim all warranties including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability and/or fitness for a particular purpose. Manufacturer: The product may come with a manufacturer's warranty. The manufacturer's warranty is in addition to but may overlap with any rights and remedies you may have under applicable law, including any Consumer Guarantees. If you are not considered a "consumer" within the meaning of the ACL, the manufacturer's warranty may be your sole remedy. You should check the manufacturer’s warranty, as many manufacturers' warranties do not apply in a business or commercial setting. Please contact the manufacturer if you would like to make a claim under the manufacturer's warranty.
(d) Replacement or a refund: If you wish to seek replacement or a refund for a product, please contact us and we will explain the requirements to you. This may include you providing proof of purchase and evidence of the faulty product to us.

We will reimburse the cost of return shipping, if the refunded product is deemed faulty, upon receipt of a copy of the receipt. We do not provide refund for change of mind so please choose the product carefully. If your order is returned because your designated delivery address is in a dry area, we will give you a refund less any cost of return shipping.
