  1. Nothing contained in these Terms shall be read or applied so as to exclude, restrict or modify or have the effect of excluding, restricting or modifying any condition, warranty, guarantee, right or remedy or other obligation implied by the Australian Consumer Law (“ACL”) which cannot by law be excluded, restricted or modified.

      1. you may recover all reasonable costs you incur in having the failure remedied; 

      2. you may (in certain circumstances) be entitled to reject the goods and claim a replacement or refund from Fishpond; or

If a failure to comply with these guarantees for a service can be remedied and is not a major failure, you may request Fishpond to remedy the failure within a reasonable time, and if it cannot be so remedied you may recover from Fishpond all reasonable costs that you incur in having the failure remedied, or terminate your agreement with Fishpond for the provision of the service.

You should carefully review the privacy statements and other conditions of use concerning third party websites.

4. Order placements & cancellations: 

  1. Once a Customer places an order:

    1. they will receive an acknowledgment email that Fishpond has received the Customer’s order;

    2. and has received Fishpond’s acknowledgement email pertaining to an order, that order is not deemed to be accepted by, or binding on Fishpond until Fishpond accepts the order in whole or in part by written notice to the Customer via a separate shipment confirmation email (at which stage a contract for the purchase of the goods will be formed);

    3. that order may be cancelled or amended by a Customer at any time prior to delivery to the Customer’s designated address, however results in the Customer incurring a “Restocking Fee” (being a $5 minimum or 17% of the value paid for the returned product, for any ‘change of mind purchases’) and foregoes any shipping charges paid for the original order.

  2. Fishpond in its sole discretion may reject or cancel an order made by a Customer for any reason, including but not limited to:

    1. unavailability of stock;

    2. if Fishpond reasonably suspects that your order is fraudulent, or suspects that credit card or payment-related fraud has occurred;

    3. error in the pricing or description of the products or services on the Site, Fishpond’s other advertisements, or an error in the order; or

    4. the inadvertent inclusion of a product or service in a Fishpond related sale, promotion or advertisement on its site.  

  3. To provide the greatest range of products Fishpond does not stock all products listed on this site in a single warehouse. All items sold via the Fishpond website are subject to availability. Product availability information is provided by a number of third party suppliers. Fishpond works with these third parties to ensure stock and inventory records shown on the Site are as accurate as possible, however some errors and inaccuracies can be expected from time-to-time. 

  4. If Fishpond is unable to provide any products ordered for the time and place specified in an order made by you through the Site, Fishpond will provide reasonable notice to you to that effect via email. Upon such notice Fishpond will provide you with a full refund for the products or services and any applicable shipping fees under your particular order.

  5. Customer orders cannot be on-sold to another party or third party for re-sale and will be cancelled with refund if used by anyone else. 

  6. The internet can be an unstable, and sometimes insecure, marketplace. You acknowledge that at times the facility to place orders may not be available, your order might not be received, your order may be lost or misdirected, or your order might be delayed.

5. Prices and payment for Fishpond orders: 

  1. Prices, shipping costs, discounts and rebates are as shown on the Site at the time of purchase but may be changed at any time by Fishpond at its sole discretion.

  2. Unless otherwise agreed by Fishpond in writing:

    1. all order prices and shipping costs are in Australian dollars (inclusive of GST); and

    2. full payment is required at the time of purchase of an order.

  3. Fishpond's available payment methods will be presented on the Site at the time of purchase. 

  4. Fishpond does not accept cash for payment of products. If the Customer does mail cash, Fishpond accepts no responsibility for the theft, loss or non-delivery of such mailed cash. However, standard Australian cheques are acceptable.

  5. If the Customer credits money to the incorrect bank account number, and the correct number was provided to the Customer by Fishpond, then Fishpond will not accept any responsibility for correcting payment and goods will not be dispatched by Fishpond until Fishpond has received payment in full in cleared funds. 

  6. A service fee sufficient to cover Fishpond’s administration and banking costs may be added by Fishpond to the price where payment by the Customer is made by way of credit card, or where any payment is dishonoured for any reason by the relevant financial institution.

  7. Fishpond will investigate all disputed payments. If the disputed amount is found by Fishpond to be payable (in whole or in part), the Customer must pay the due amount within 7 calendar days after receiving written notice of the amount payable by the Customer (including the basis of Fishpond’s decision) from Fishpond. Invoiced amounts that are not disputed in writing within 14 calendar days after the date of the relevant invoice will be deemed to be correctly charged and accepted by the Customer and the Customer will be liable to pay those amounts in accordance with these Terms.

6. Retention of title and passage of risk 

  1. Fishpond retains title to all products purchased by you until all amounts secured by all products have been paid to Fishpond in full. 

  2. All risk in products which are ordered by you will pass to you on delivery of those products. In case of delivery delay, risk passes on the intended delivery date.

  3. Once you receive your ordered products from us, Fishpond is not liable for any kind of loss, damage, wear and tear to, change in condition to, or the destruction of the purchased products.

7. Refunds, ‘change of mind’ returns, delivery, offers and vouchers

    1. in saleable and undamaged condition;

    2. in its original unopened and sealed packaging; and

    3. accompanied with proof of purchase.

  7. Special offers: Special deals and offers on the Site are only valid for so long as they are displayed, unless expressly stated otherwise by us in writing.

  8. Fishpond credits: Coupon credits can only be used as credits towards future orders and cannot be converted into a cash payment from Fishpond to the Customer and can also be used to purchase gift vouchers.

  9. Gift vouchers and Fishpond credit expiry: Gift vouchers and Fishpond credits are valid for three years from the time they are issued, after which the voucher and credit will expire.
