Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and failure does not amount to a major failure. If the failure is minor, we reserve our right to offer to repair only. We reserve the right to not offer a refund or an exchange coupon.

Please note: Due to shop security and staffing arrangements and limitations, it may not be possible to action and conclude every claim or return “on the spot” --- in some cases, extra time may be required to process refunds, particularly where cash is involved.

Please read the following carefully to ensure you are fully aware of your rights under the policy and our obligations to you.
