You acknowledge and agree that we may:

  • monitor your access to and use of the Website.

Access to the Website depends on telecommunications and internet service providers and other external factors and we do not guarantee the availability of the Website at all times or at any specific times.

While we will take precautions to ensure the Website is secure, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure the security of any information transmitted to, from or using the Website.

  1. Goods

3.1 If you wish to purchase goods from the Website's merchandise catalogue (theWebsite Shop), you must add the desired goods to the Website Shop 'cart' and enter your contact and billing details at 'Checkout' and fully comply with the instructions indicated therein. Prices and other product information quoted on the Website Shop are subject to change from time to time without notice. The price of goods ordered by you will be the price quoted on the Website Shop (typically summarised in the 'Checkout' page of the Website) at the time you place your order. Although we take all reasonable care to ensure that prices and other product information quoted on the Website are correct at the time of publication, we reserve the right to correct any publishing errors and cancel orders made at an incorrect price.

All prices quoted on the Website are in Australian dollars and inclusive of Australian Goods and Services Tax (GST) unless they are marked as a fundraising item. If you are not an Australian resident, you may be liable to pay additional tariffs, duties or other taxes in connection with your order. We are not responsible for the payment of any additional tariffs, duties or other taxes and you must reimburse us on demand if we pay such additional tariffs, duties or other taxed in relation to your order.

3.2 Payment

If you order goods from us, payment is due immediately when your order is placed. When placing an order through the Website, you must provide your valid credit card number and any other information requested through the Website to enable payment for your order to be processed. Your credit card will be charged at the time your order is placed.

You warrant that any credit card details provided by you are true and correct and that you are authorised to charge the relevant payment to that credit card.

If GST is payable on a supply of goods ordered through the Website, you must pay the applicable GST in addition to the amount payable for the supply, packaging and delivery of the relevant goods.

Once you have placed an order, you cannot change it or cancel it without our express agreement. If we agree to alter or cancel your order, you must pay us any loss, damage, cost or expenses incurred in relation to the change or cancellation.

3.3 Delivery

We ship goods Australia wide. Please contact us if you require shipping international.

Goods will be delivered to the delivery address specified in your order. The costs of delivery are in addition to the costs of the goods quoted on the Website. Orders will be dispatched by us as soon as practicable after receipt of an order.

Deliveries are carried out on our behalf by Australia Post.The costs of delivery are influenced by the size and weight of the product and the destination for delivery. Delivery dates or times indicated at the time of placing an order (if any) are approximate dates only and do not constitute a guarantee of delivery by such date.

If requested, you must provide reasonably proof of your identity and sign an acknowledgement of receipt of goods at the time the goods are delivered to the specified delivery address. If you are not present at the time of attempted delivery of the goods to the specified delivery address or you cannot provide reasonable proof of your identity, the delivery service may keep the goods for later collection by you. You will be notified if that happens, and you must then collect the goods at your own expense.

If we reasonably determine that your order is not deliverable to the specified delivery address due to the address provided being invalid or lack of reasonable access to that address or you do not collect the goods within 15 days after being notified that they have been kept by the delivery service for collection by you, we may cancel the order and the relevant goods will be returned to us at your expense and made available for sale to other customers. In those cases, we will refund you the price you have paid for the goods less packaging and delivery charges and reasonable handling costs.

We reserve the right to make part deliveries of any order. Failure to make a delivery of the total order does not invalidate the contract of sale in relation to goods actually delivered. You are not relieved of your obligation to accept or pay for the goods because of any delay in delivery. We are not liable for any failure to deliver or delay in delivery for any reason beyond our reasonable control.

If we discover after accepting an order that we cannot deliver the ordered goods, we will notify you and will be entitled to cancel the order. We will, of course, inform you immediately and reimburse any payments made.
