INFORMATION ABOUT US
sketchandetch.com.au is a site operated by Sketch & Etch (we or us). We are registered in Australia under
ABN 73 607 963 057.
ACCESSING OUR SITE
Access to our site is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the products or services 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.
Prices shown on the Site are in Australian Dollars (AUD) and are inclusive of GST (where applicable).
Prices are subject to change effective immediately upon posting to our site or other form of notification.
While we take care to ensure that all prices quoted on our site are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any product you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming the order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, the order will be treated as cancelled and if you have already paid for the product you will receive a full refund. We are under no obligation to sell the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price (even after we have sent you an order confirmation) if the pricing error is an obvious typographical or arithmetical inaccuracy and could have reasonably been recognised by you as such.
ACCEPTANCE OF YOUR ORDER
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 prior to dispatch by us, acceptance of your order and completion of the contract between you and us is subject to acceptance by us and 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.
By placing an order through our site, you warrant that you are at least 18 years old and are legally capable of entering into binding contracts.
By placing an order with us and paying for an invoice, you accept our Shipping & Return conditions https://sketchandetch.com.au/pages/shipping-returns
AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCT
All orders for products are subject to availability and in this regard, in the event of supply difficulties or because products are no longer in stock, we reserve the right to give you information about substitute products of an equal or higher quality and value which you can order. If you do not wish to order such substitute products, we will refund any monies that you might have paid and/or inform you when the product is in stock.
We reserve the right to withdraw any products from our site at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on our site. Whilst we will make our best efforts to always process all the orders, there may be exceptional circumstances which mean that we may need to refuse to process an order after we have sent you an order confirmation, which we reserve the right to do at any time, at our sole discretion.
We will not be liable to you or any other third party by reason of our withdrawing any product from our site, whether it has been sold or not, removing or editing any materials or contents on our site or for refusing to process or accept an order after we have sent you the order confirmation.
