Dogs & Things - Terms & Conditions
PURPOSE OF THE SITE
The purpose of the Site is to provide you with information about us, our products, the campaigns that we support and the activities we undertake. In addition, you may be able to purchase products and services through the Site.
PRODUCT AND SERVICE AVAILABILITY
Reference to any product or service on the Site does not constitute an offer to sell or supply that product or service and does not mean that the product or service is available or that the name and description of any product in your local shop will be the same as that included on the Site. Dogs & Things ABN 89 973 283 201 trading as Dogs and Things controls and operates the Site from its headquarters in Queensland Australia. We in no way imply that the materials on our Site are appropriate or available for use outside Australia and we may not be able to fill your order if you require shipping outside of Australia. Inventory information is generally available on the Site for domestic (Australian) merchandise. This information can be used to estimate the likelihood that merchandise will be shipped immediately after you place your order. However, we cannot guarantee that a product listed as in stock will actually ship right away, as inventory can change significantly from day to day. In rare cases, a product may be in stock when you place your order, and sold out by the time your order is processed. However, if an item that is in stock in your shopping cart when you place your order is sold out at the time your order is processed, we will notify you by e-mail or telephone that your order will not be filled and your credit card will not be charged.
We try to display the colours of our products as accurately as possible. Nevertheless, as the actual colours you see will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any colour will be accurate.
PRICES AND AVAILABILITY OF THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES LISTED ON THE SITE ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. ALL PRICES AND CHARGES AS LISTED ON THE SITE ARE DISPLAYED AND CHARGED IN AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS (AUD). The listing, description of, or reference to, a product or service on the Site does not imply that the product or service is presently available or that we endorse that product or service. In the event a product or service is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error, error in pricing information received from a supplier, or any other reason, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any order placed for such product or service at the incorrect price, even if the order has been confirmed and/or your credit card has been charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we shall promptly issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price. Pre-packaged gifts are assembled individually and may vary slightly. We reserve the right to substitute a product of equal value and nature if the original product becomes unavailable. Risk of damage to or loss of any product or service ordered by you from us transfers to you with effect from the time of delivery. Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in said product or service, title in said product or service shall not pass to you until we have received in cleared funds payment in full of the price of the products agreed to be sold to you for which payment is then due.
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason or for no reason at all. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any product or service.
We do not ship products containing alcohol unless their contents and packaging comply with the Post Guide for Dangerous & Prohibited Goods & Packaging issued by Australia Post from time to time. We are not responsible for errors due to printing.
You are responsible for any payments due for any products or services ordered through your account. If we do not receive payment from your credit issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due to us. You shall also be responsible for any costs of collection of overdue payment.

USER COMMENTS, FEEDBACK AND OTHER SUBMISSIONS

You expressly agree that use of the site is at your sole risk and you assume full responsibility for all costs associated with all necessary servicing or repairs of any equipment you use in connection with your use of the site. Neither we nor any of our business partners represent or warrant that the site will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects, if any, will be corrected, or that the site is free of viruses or other harmful components; nor do we or they make any representations or warranties about the accuracy, reliability, currency, quality, performance or suitability of the site or any content available on the site. In the event of any problem with the site or any content, you agree that your sole remedy is to cease using the site. All products and services listed or purchased on or through the site are subject only to any applicable express warranties. To the fullest extent permissible by applicable law, we disclaim all other warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, with respect to products and services listed or purchased on or through the site. We disclaim any and all liability for product defect or failure, claims that are due to normal wear, product misuse, abuse, product modification, improper product selection, non-compliance with any codes, or misapplication.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
To the fullest extent permitted by law, the sole remedy for any claim for damages arising out of or related to any product or service listed or purchased on or through the site shall be limited to a refund of the purchase price paid for such product or service. Under no circumstances shall we or any of our business partners, or any of our or their respective officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents or representatives, or any other party involved in creating, producing, transmitting or distributing the site or any product sold through the site, or any part thereof, be liable for any punitive, exemplary, consequential, incidental, indirect or special damages arising from or in connection with the site or any content, products or services made available or listed on it, whether for breach of contract, negligence, strict liability or otherwise, even if such party has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Some states and/or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. In the event the foregoing limitation of liability is held to be unenforceable for any reason, then our maximum liability for any of the foregoing types of damages shall be limited to the amount that we receive for the transaction that gave rise to the claim.
