Accessing our site
Access to our site is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the service we provide on our site without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason our site is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of our site, or our entire site.
You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to our site. You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our site through your internet connection are aware of these terms, and that they comply with them.

Pricing and orders
Prices shown on our site are in Australian Dollars (AUD) and are exclusive of GST (unless indicated otherwise). Prices are subject to change effective immediately upon posting to our site or other form of notification.
Once you have made your choice and your order has been placed, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is NOT an acceptance of your order, just a confirmation that we have received it. Unless you cancel your order, acceptance of your order and completion of the contract between you and us will be completed when we email you to confirm the goods have been dispatched and have been handed over to the designated carrier. The sale contract is therefore concluded in Victoria, Australia.
We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event that we are unable to obtain authorisation for payment or that the item ordered is out of stock. We reserve the right to refuse to process or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion.
