Terms and Conditions

The use of this website and any purchases made signifies you accept the following terms and conditions.

These trading terms and conditions comply with all Australian Laws, however if you are unsure of anything, please contact before buying. The warranty policy outlined in section 5 is valid for goods purchased after Jan 1st 2011. They are in addition to, and do not affect, your statuatory rights.

1. Prices
All prices listed are in Australian dollars ($AUD) and are inclusive of GST. Prices are subject to change without notice and are dependant on stock levels and availability from suppliers. Final pricing is only applied at the time of invoicing. VTech Industries may, at its own descretion, increase prices in the event of a price rise or error made by a supplier. All prices are excluding delivery unless stated otherwise. Although rare, errors in pricing can occur and VTech Industries can refuse a sale if the advertised price is incorrect.

2. Placing an order
Placing an order with VTech Industries signifies you agree to the terms and conditions listed here. All orders are to be placed online through the shopping cart. All orders placed are subject to confirmation and acceptance by VTech Industries. We reserve the right to refuse a sale for any reason. Cancellation of, or changes to any orders (excluding eBay orders) will only be accepted if payment hasn't been made. Stock is reserved as soon as your credit card has been approved, or proof of payment provided (for direct deposit), Although quite rare, if stock runs out before stock can be reserved, you will be offered a refund or a choice of a different item. Although very rare, delays to orders can occur for reasons such as, but not limited to: unexpected stock issues, problems at the supplier, restricting weather and excessively busy periods.

3. Payment
Payment can be made by Paypal, direct deposit or credit card. All payments are subject to clearance into our bank account and goods will only be dispatched when full amount has cleared. VTech Industries will not be held responsible for any errors or delays by banks while payments are being processed. Ownership of goods does not pass onto the customer until the order has been paid in full. Due to our security/anti-fraud policies, for first time customers ordering high-end laptops and other similar high-end consumer electronics, we can only accept payment via bank transfer/direct deposit (ie, no credit card or Paypal). We reserve the right to cancel any order we deem to be "high risk" without notice.

4. Delivery
VTech Industries cannot control couriers and once the goods have been handed over to the courier company, it is the sole responsibility of the courier to deliver the goods. VTech Industries will not be held responsible for delayed delivery, damage or loss while goods are in transit. Delayed delivery and damage or loss of goods is not a reflection of VTech Industries' service. Any damage must be noted in writing when signing for the delivery, otherwise an insurance claim can't be raised. There is no insurance/cover for lost or damaged packages which are given authority to leave without signature, and therefore no claim can be raised thereafter. Please note, delivery drivers can't call prior to delivery. Responsibility of organising delivery ends at the first delivery attempt (whether successful or unsuccessful, ie unattended premises). Customer is resposible for organising re-delivery/collection with the courier company and any re-delivery fees that may be incurred. VTech Industries may, at its own discretion, override an 'OK to Leave' request to require a signature on delivery for insurance and/or security reasons. All orders dispatched will have adequate static protection and padding material.
Delivery charges are calculated during checkout. For an idea on approximate delivery costs, please visit the delivery page
