In these Terms and Conditions of Sale ("Conditions of Sale"), "we" or "us" means DC Fridge Pty Ltd ABN 94 152 915 654 and "you" means the person, organisation or entity that purchased the products or related services from us.
Please read through these Conditions of Sale carefully as they form the agreement under which we will supply products and services to you. These Conditions of Sale apply to all sales made by us to consumers whether products and services are purchased online or over the telephone.
1.1.1 You may place an order with us over the telephone or by completing and submitting to us an online order form on our website. We may at our discretion accept or reject an order depending on a variety of factors, such as availability of the ordered products or our ability to validate payment for the products. You must not order products or services from us if you are under eighteen (18) years of age. We may, at our discretion, treat any order by a person under eighteen (18) years old as void.
1.1.2 Please choose your products carefully. Prices can change and so you should check the latest price on our website or confirm the price with our sales team on the phone before placing your order. It is your responsibility to check the order (including all pricing and product information) before you complete the online checkout process or before you place your telephone order.
1.1.3 We will let you have an "order reference number" via a confirmation email or over the phone once your checkout process or phone order is complete. However, if you are paying by Credit Card, Direct Deposit or Paypal, we will not complete your order until your payment has passed our internal validation procedures. Once your payment has been validated, we will process your order and let you have an order reference number. Please keep your order reference number safely.
1.1.4 Once we have given you an order reference number, a binding agreement will come into existence between you and us and only these Conditions of Sale will apply in relation to the supply of the ordered products. Subject to clause 1.1.2, no changes to these Conditions of Sale will be effective unless we both agree to the changes in writing. If you wish to cancel your order we ask that you advise us at least one (1) business day before your planned delivery date and you will receive a full refund subject to these Conditions of Sale.
1.2.1 We do our best to keep in stock most products that are advertised by us. All stock availability as represented on our website or by our sales or Customer Service Team is accurate in accordance with our current stock levels with each manufacturer, however, these stock levels are subject to change without notice.
1.2.2 If, for any reason, we cannot supply a product you have ordered, we will let you know over the phone or contact you using the details provided by you at the checkout process to amend, cancel or put your order on backorder as agreed with you. If you choose to put your order on backorder, we will contact you to arrange for delivery once the product is available.
1.3.1 The price payable for a product is the one set out on our website or advised by us over the phone at the time you place your order. All prices are inclusive of GST. Subject to clause 1.9.6, we make every effort to ensure prices and product information on our website, catalogues or advertisements are correct and up-to-date. Prices for our products displayed on third party websites may not be correct and we are not bound by them.
1.3.2 We accept payment by VISA or MasterCard credit cards, Paypal or via direct deposit. All Credit Card payment are made via the Commonwealth Bank and accordingly processed by the CommWeb Virtual Payment Client API.
1.3.3 Your credit card details will be encrypted to minimise the possibility of unauthorised access or disclosure. Whilst we employ the latest technology and use Paypal's Payflow secure payment gateway, we will not be responsible for any loss or damage (whether direct or indirect) suffered by you if your credit card is fraudulently used or is used in an unauthorised manner by a third party.
1.3.4 If you would like to redeem a gift voucher for payment or partial payment of your ordered products, you must enter the gift voucher details during the checkout process or inform our sales or Customer Service Team when placing your phone order. Products purchased with a gift voucher cannot be returned in exchange for cash. Use of a gift voucher is subject to our Gift Voucher Terms and Conditions.
1.3.5 If you have a promotional/discount/coupon code, you will be prompted to enter the code at the checkout and this will generate a discount from your cart value or add an incentive. To activate, simply enter a valid code then click the "Apply" button. All promotional codes have a unique set of terms and conditions automatically applied when issued and are only valid at our discretion. Promotional codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or discount. If you are unable to use a promotional code, please contact our Customer Service Team.
1.3.6 Your tax invoice will be sent to you via email at the completion of the order and payment process. Your tax invoice is your proof of purchase and may be required for any warranty claims.
1.4.1 We deliver to most areas in mainland Australia from our Gold Coast warehouse, however, where possible DC Fridge will arrange direct shipment from our localised distributor/supplier warehouses to minimise delays in delivery.
1.4.2 You may request a date for delivery and we will do our best to arrange delivery on that date. However, some delivery areas have set delivery days. If we cannot deliver on your preferred day we will contact you as soon as possible.
1.4.3 Most products will be dispatched for delivery within 48 hours of the date your payment is received. Please allow an additional 4 days for delivery of large or bulky items depending upon the delivery location. Where you have purchased a special order, delivery time after payment processing may take up to 21 days.
1.4.4 Delivery will be made to the delivery address specified by you when you placed your order.
1.4.5 We may deliver products via a range of delivery methods. All deliveries must be signed for, depending upon which delivery method we use:
(a) delivery by our contracted courier company or directly by the distributor/supplier - if neither you nor your authorised representative is at the delivery address to take delivery, the courier company or the manufacturer will leave a card with our contact details so that you can contact us to arrange another delivery time and date; and
(b) delivery by Australian Post - if neither you nor your authorised representative is at the delivery address to take delivery, an "Article Awaiting" card will be left at the delivery address and your order will be taken to the Australian Post Office suitable to store the product until you are able to go and pick it up. In these circumstances our obligation to deliver the product to you is satisfied when the "Article Awaiting" card is left at the delivery address.
1.5.1 Notwithstanding delivery of the products to you, title in the products will not pass to you until the later of delivery or your payment has been processed or otherwise received by us. If your payment is declined for any reason we reserve the right to reclaim the products from your possession, custody or control even if they have been delivered to you or moved from the delivery address. We reserve the right to keep or sell the products. Risk of loss, damage or deterioration to any products will pass to you on delivery.
1.5.2 You acknowledge and agree that clause 1.5.1 creates a purchase money security interest in the products which we are entitled to register as such under the Personal Properties Securities Act 2009 (Cth) ("PPSA"). To the extent permitted under the PPSA, we each agree to contract out of the provisions listed in section 115 of the PPSA. You waive your right to be provided with verification statements under section 157 of the PPSA. We agree that neither of us will disclose to any third person information referred to in section 275(1) of the PPSA and that this is a confidentiality agreement for the purposes of section 275(6) of the PPSA.
1.6.1 Nothing in these Conditions of Sale limits or excludes any guarantees, warranties, representations or conditions implied or imposed by law, including the Australian Consumer Law ("ACL") (or any liability under them) which by law may not be limited or excluded. If you are a "consumer" under 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."
1.6.2 Your 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. However, you should check the Manufacturer's Warranty carefully as many manufacturers' warranties will not apply in a business or commercial setting.
