Return Policy

No Goods may be returned other than with prior agreement in writing from the Company. Prior to returning any Goods to the Company for any reason, the Customer must contact the Company to obtain a returns authorisation number ('RMA'). All Goods are returned at the Customer's risk and expense and should be undamaged by the Customer and in their original packaging. The Customer is responsible for returning Goods to the Company and for providing proof or delivery of such return.

The Company operates a 30 days return policy. To be accepted for return on this basis, Goods should be returned for receipt by the Company within 30 days of invoice date. The Customer should return the Goods as directed once an RMA has been obtained , clearly quoting the return materials authorisation number (RMA), Customer's account number and order number on the outside of the package.

Goods that consist of software or are specially constructed or contain any of the hazardous substances referred to in Directive 2002/95/EC on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical or Electronic Equipment ('RoHS') may not be returned. Any Goods which are not in catalogue or are non-stock items may not be returned. Any static-sensitive Goods or moisture sensitive components (MSL) supplied in sealed packaging may not be returned if the blister or 'peel' packs in which they are supplied have been opened, tampered with or damaged.

Any Goods returned as 'unwanted' or 'incorrectly ordered' may at the discretion of the Company be subject to a restocking fee of 20% of the invoice value of the Goods (subject to a minimum charge of AUD10).
