In the event that your account or services we provide to you are suspended for any reason, such as failure to make payment, or otherwise breaching the Website Terms of Service, any User Content, services, or other data, including but not limited to hosted content, will be maintained temporarily until destroyed without further reference to you. Services which are interrupted by failure to pay, or otherwise due to breaches of these Website Terms of Service will mean that you will be unable to access any data, User Content or hosted servers until such time as the service is reactivated. It is your responsibility to keep backups of all data, and the Company holds no responsibility for any data, User Content or other information being lost either due to external factors, or due to deletion as a result of service cancellation or suspension.

Unless otherwise expressly stated, all amounts payable through your use of this site are expressed to be exclusive of Australian GST. For these purposes, the term “GST” has the meaning given to it in the A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999 (Cth).
Payment for orders placed through this site may be made by credit card processed online using the secure payment gateway or using a PayPal, Stripe or POLI Payments account.
Unless you expressly consent otherwise, we do not see or have access to any personal information that you may provide to third party payment gateways, other than information that is required in order to process your order and deliver your purchased items to you (e.g., your name, email address and billing address).
It is not necessary to have a PayPal or POLI Payments account in order to make a purchase on this site. Both PayPal and Stripe accepts all major credit and debit cards. Please note that we may be unable to accept credit cards issued by banks outside of Australia in some cases. The Company does not charge additional transaction fees for paying by credit card.
Except as expressly provided otherwise in these Website Terms of Service, all amounts paid through this site are non-refundable. Further information on the steps that the Company will take to remedy any breach of any non-excludable condition or warranty/guarantee is provided under the heading "Remedies limited" in these Website Terms of Service below.
Any refunded credit can only be credited to the account to which it originated, and cannot be transferred or otherwise credited against other alternative accounts.
Any disputes relating to charges must be reported directly to us within 30 days of the charge occurring. We will investigate any genuine mistakes and take steps to refund any payments that were made in error. However, should a disputed charge deemed valid by us be disputed to your financial institution by way of a charge back, you agree that an Administration Fee of AUD$220.00 (inc GST) plus the amount charged back will be immediately payable to the Company.
While PayPal, Stripe, POLI Payments and our website hosting providers employ secure technology for transactions with our customers, we will not be responsible for any damages, including consequential losses (whether direct or indirect), that may be suffered by a customer whose credit or debit card or bank account information is used in a fraudulent or unauthorised manner by any person other than the Company.
The Company may request further information from you, such as a copy of your credit card and/or other identification documentation, as part of our internal validation procedures. These procedures help protect bank and credit card account holders from online fraud. Until your order has passed our internal fraud prevention checks, your order will remain on pending status. If further information is requested and you do not provide the requested information within such time as the Company considers appropriate at its discretion, your order will be cancelled and, if your payment has been received, it will be refunded back to you.
