Where there is a breach of such a warranty relating to goods or services, and the breach is in terms of the Australian Consumer Law, a “major” failure, then the remedy will be limited to a refund or a replacement, at your election. In all other cases, a breach of such warranty will give rise to a refund or replacement at our election.
- You must retain your proof of purchase for any manufacturer warranty claims.
- As supplier, we provide the following express warranties subject to the following terms and conditions:

- Refunds will be issued by direct deposit or cheque at our discretion.

In many cases this will be 7 to 14 days, but in some circumstances may be longer. Please contact us. Once contacted we will advise you of the best way to return any products. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will notify you of how to make arrangements for returns if applicable.
