The Agreement

In addition to the Terms of Use, these terms and conditions ("the Purchase Terms") set out the additional terms and conditions under which you may purchase from Aquaponicals products appearing on this website. By completing the customer application process and purchasing products from this website, an agreement exists between you and Aquaponicals once Aquaponicals accepts an order. Each accepted order is a separate agreement.

Customer Application

You must complete the customer application process before placing any orders. You warrant that all information and data provided by you is accurate, complete and up to date. You will promptly notify Aquaponicals if there is any change to this information or data. You must take responsibility for the safekeeping of your username and password, as you are liable if an unauthorised person uses your username and password.

Orders

You place an order with Aquaponicals by selecting products and pressing the "purchase now" button on the checkout page. Aquaponicals reserves the right to accept or reject an order for any reason including without limitation, unavailability of product; an error in the price, image or the product description; or error in your order. Orders are deemed received by Aquaponicals at the time of successful transmission of the order, and you will thereafter be unable to cancel the order. Orders are deemed accepted by Aquaponicals upon Aquaponicals acknowledging such order or failing to reject such order within 14 days. We only accept orders from Australia and New Zealand.

Product Availability

Aquaponicals uses its best endeavours to ensure products ordered are available for delivery, and in most cases will notify you where a product is unavailable prior to you completing your order. However you acknowledge that in some cases this is not possible and Aquaponicals may need to reject an order you have placed for a product where Aquaponicals establishes that it is actually unavailable for delivery. In such cases Aquaponicals will refund in full all amounts you paid in respect of such unavailable product. Aquaponicals cannot provide rainchecks for products ordered online, and where permitted by law reserves the right to limit the sale of products to reasonable or normal household quantities.

Payment

You must pay for your products purchased on this website at the time of placing an order. To pay for products, you will be transferred to an external site operated by PayPal. You agree that PayPal is responsible for processing and the security of your payment, and you hereby release Aquaponicals from any liability in relation to such payment. Please refer to PayPal's terms of use for conditions applying to payment processing services.

Variation of Products and Price

Aquaponicals may vary the prices on this website at any time, and prices are subject to change until you have paid for the products in full.

Delivery

Delivery terms included delivery areas, delivery costs and estimated delivery times are contained in Aquaponicals' Delivery Policy published on this website, and the Delivery Policy is expressly incorporated in these Purchase Terms. Please note that to purchase products, your delivery address must be within a suburb where Aquaponicals provides delivery. Orders will not be processed for delivery to an address in a suburb not in Aquaponicals' delivery area. Risk in the products passes to you upon delivery to your nominated delivery address, and title passes upon payment for the products in full.

Returns

Return claims (including for replacement products, refunds or credits) are detailed in Aquaponicals' Returns Policy published on this website, and the Returns Policy is expressly incorporated in these Purchase Terms. Please refer to this policy to determine your entitlement to a return, and the process that you need to follow.

 

3. Delivery Policy

We will deliver to most addresses within Australia, but do not deliver to international locations. We require a street address for delivery. Some remote locations cannot be serviced, however, Aquaponicals’ carrier may be able to deliver to a local depot where you can collect your products.

The locations we can deliver to may change from time-to-time. Please call us, if you consider it necessary, to find out if we deliver to your location.

How and when we deliver

Deliveries are made typically between 8.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday by Aquaponicals’ chosen carrier. For orders placed before 4.00pm on a weekday, please allow from the confirmation of dispatch:

Please note that these delivery times are estimates only, and actual delivery times may vary.

We are not responsible for any late delivery or failure to deliver due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

The supplier will deliver the product to your requested location at your address wherever possible. Please ensure that your requested delivery location is free from obstructions and is otherwise in a clean and tidy state to prevent any delivery delays. At the time of delivery, you may be asked to sign a form to acknowledge that the goods were delivered in good and proper condition. Where you have requested that a representative accept delivery of the goods on your behalf, this delivery acknowledgment will be obtained by the supplier from your representative. Please note that the supplier is under strict instructions to only deliver and obtain delivery confirmation from you personally unless you agree to other arrangements with the supplier.

Cost of delivery

Delivery charges are calculated on a per order basis and according to the weight and size of your order, and your delivery address.

You will have the opportunity (based on your entered postcode) to view the finalised delivery charges on your order at the checkout stage before you complete your order and make payment.

Acceptance of delivery

Deliveries must be signed for, and anyone at the delivery address who receives the products shall be presumed by Aquaponicals to be authorised to receive the products.

Unfortunately Aquaponicals and its carriers are unable to provide an estimate of the delivery time. If you are unsure if you will be available at the delivery address during the delivery hours, we recommend nominating a work address or address of a family member who will be present during the delivery hours. In the instance someone is not able to sign for your delivery, our chosen carrier may leave a card. When delivered by Australia Post you will need to collect your delivery from the closest Post Office. Any other carrier you will need to contact them directly to make alternative delivery arrangements, which may include a re-delivery fee charged by Aquaponicals if re-delivery is required.

Please note that risk for loss or damaged product passes to the customer upon delivery of the product(s) by the courier.

Delivery Problems

If your delivery has not arrived, please contact us. If you wish to return a product delivered damaged or otherwise, please refer to our Returns Policy.

If the product is determined to be faulty, not of merchantable quality, not fit for purpose or not matching a description or sample, Aquaponicals will offer a repair, exchange voucher or refund.

If you cannot present sufficient proof of purchase, Aquaponicals reserves the right not to offer a refund or exchange.
