2. Basis of Contract and Placing Orders
These Terms apply exclusively to every Contract and cannot be varied or replaced by any other terms.
You may place an order by following the instructions on the Site. By placing an order, you are making an offer to enter into a Contract to purchase the Goods for the Price.
Orders will be deemed received and accepted by us, at the time we send an order confirmation and receipt of purchase to your nominated e-mail address. If the Goods ordered are not available or we otherwise reject the order, you will receive an email to your nominated e-mail address advising this. It is your responsibility to ensure the correct email address and contact details are entered with your order.
Each order you place will be a separate Contract. If you place consecutive or separate orders, the orders cannot be consolidated. A separate Delivery Fee, if applicable, will apply to each order.
All Goods offered for sale are for personal, non-commercial use and not for commercial re-sale or for use by governments or educational institutions.
We may restrict the quantity of Goods which can be purchased in one order, or during a particular period of time, or per person, or per address. Any quantity restrictions will be stated on the relevant product page, in the materials about the relevant promotion, or otherwise advised on the Site.
If we cannot contact you about your order using the contact details you provided in the order, then after having made reasonable attempts to contact you, your order will be cancelled and you will be refunded any money paid to the payment details submitted via the Site.

3. Pricing and Payment
The Price and availability of any Goods are subject to change without notice. If we have already accepted an order at a particular Price, we will supply at that Price.
The Price for the Goods is stated on the relevant product page on the Site. The Goods available, Price, and promotions offered on the Site (if any) may not be the same as those in a Dometic retail store, or a third-party seller’s store or website, and we will not price match. From time to time, we may offer promotional discount or coupon codes which may apply in respect of any, or certain specified, orders or Goods on the Site. All codes must be applied, if relevant, prior to submitting your order. Other conditions of use will be specified on the Site or at the time of issue in relation to these discounts and coupons, and placement of an order by you will be considered acceptance of these additional terms.
All Prices are in Australian Dollars and, if GST applies, inclusive of GST. Any fees and charges (including Delivery Fees) imposed by these Terms also include GST where applicable.
Full payment, including Delivery Fees (if applicable) is due at the time of submitting your order. Unpacking, assembly and installation fees do not form part of your Delivery Fee.
Payment methods are specified on the Site and are subject to change.
In paying or attempting to pay for Goods, you agree that you have not engaged in any fraudulent conduct or contravened any Law. If your nominated payment method triggers our fraud prevention protocols, we may contact you to confirm additional details or rescind the transaction. In this case, your order must pass our fraud prevention protocols before it will be fulfilled. If you do not provide the requested information within the required time frame, your order will be cancelled and payment returned, if applicable, to the method you originally paid. These information requests are sent to help protect credit card holders from online fraud.
4. Availability of Goods
Goods displayed on the Site are strictly subject to availability. From time to time, Goods may be out of stock or unavailable and we may not be able to fulfil all or part of your order. If this happens, we will refund you the Price paid for the Goods impacted, arrange a ‘back order’ for the Goods, or you may elect to place an order for alternative Goods, at your discretion.
We may withdraw or suspend from sale any Goods displayed on the Site, either temporarily or permanently, at any time and without notice.
All reasonable care will be taken to ensure that all details, descriptions, images and Prices on the Site are accurate, however the Site may contain errors, inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information without prior notice.
You acknowledge and agree that: any accessory featured with the Goods is for illustrative purposes only, and may be sold separately unless advised otherwise; and where we provide dimensions and measurements in the description of the Goods, no representations are given about the suitability for your intended use or the accuracy of the dimensions and measurements. All descriptions are accurate at the time of display on the Site, to the best of our knowledge. You acknowledge that some dimensions may vary slightly, and we have no control over this. It is your responsibility to ensure that the actual size of the Goods selected is suitable for your purpose prior to submitting your order (including whether there is appropriate and safe access to your Delivery Address for delivery of the Goods).

You assume all risk and liability for loss, damage or injury to persons or to your property or the property of third parties, arising out of your use or possession of any of the Goods sold to you by us, unless recoverable from us on the failure of any applicable statutory consumer guarantee under the ACL.
6. Shipping and Delivery
The Goods are delivered Australia wide using DHL. Dispatch times are an estimate only and may vary according to availability of the Goods and the time of year (e.g. during certain periods such as sale periods, Easter or Christmas, dispatch, and deliveries may take longer to fulfil due to high order volumes).
We will use our reasonable endeavours to meet any estimated dates for delivery of the Goods. However, time will not be of the essence and, subject to the ACL, we will not be liable to you if delivery is not on time.
Delivery Fees will apply and will vary depending on the type of Goods, size, weight and dimensions, and Delivery Address. The Delivery Fees will be calculated and collated in your shopping cart.
Your order may be fulfilled from multiple locations at different times depending on stock availability. In the instance that your order is split, you will not be charged any additional Delivery Fees.
If re-delivery is required, you will be required to pay additional Delivery Fees (including where your order was subject to discounted delivery). Delivery Fees paid will not be returned in such cases, unless required by Law.
Goods will be delivered to the Delivery Address specified on the order.
You or a person over the age of 18 must be available to accept delivery at the Delivery Address on the agreed date between you and the Delivery Agent. If no-one is at the Delivery Address or there is limited access to the Delivery Address, the Delivery Agent will leave a collection card with instructions on where to collect your Goods.
Where the Delivery Address is an office address, shared house or apartment, the Delivery Agent will make reasonable attempts to contact you however you agree that delivery may be made to an individual at the Delivery Address and that we will be able to rely on that individual's instructions as if they were your own.
Without limiting clauses 1 to 11, for deliveries of Big & Bulky Goods, you must provide any relevant access details (including stairs access only, parking restrictions etc) to the Delivery Agent prior to delivery.
7. Force Majeure
We will not be liable in any way howsoever arising under the Contract to the extent that we are prevented from acting by a Force Majeure Event. If a Force Majeure Event occurs, we may suspend or cancel the Contract by written notice to you.
We reserve the right to defer the date of delivery of the Goods, or to cancel the Contract or reduce the volume of the Goods ordered by you (without liability to you) if we are prevented from, or delayed in, the carrying on of our business (wholly or in part) due to a Force Majeure Event.
