About these Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions cannot be varied without our written consent. We may update these Terms and Conditions from time to time and the current version will always be shown on the Terms and Conditions page of our web site.
We encourage you to read these Terms and Conditions thoroughly and contact us directly, if you have any particular questions.
If you DO NOT agree to these Terms and Conditions, you must not use our web site in any manner.
Accessing our Website
Weatherproof Kitchens will not be liable if, for any reason, our web site is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may need to restrict access to our web site (wholly or partly). You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for your own access to our web site. You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our web site through your Internet connection are aware of these Terms and Conditions, and that they comply with them.
The products for sale on our website are offered as part of a sale event, which means they are offered for a limited time and are limited in quantity. Weatherproof Kitchens is not a manufacturer and our web site is a portal, which allows our members to purchase Alfresco Australia branded and third party products. The products for sale on our web site are intended solely for purchase by members for their personal use. You agree not to commercially resell any product you buy from our web site. We may restrict orders to what we deem to be normal household quantities.
We endeavour to ensure that all the products on our web site are accurately described, and we rely on information provided to us by our suppliers. Unfortunately, on some occasions it is possible that our web site will contain errors and we reserve the right to correct any errors or inaccuracies at any time, including after you have placed an order. In some cases the products we offer for sale are hand-made or made from natural or organic materials, and there may be small variations between the product image(s) and the product you receive. This will always be stated on the individual product listing. We endeavour to ensure that all colours are displayed accurately, but you should be aware that colours may appear slightly differently on different displays and screens.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, we do not warrant that the product descriptions, colours, information or other content available or offered on our web site are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free, nor do we make any warranty about the standard or quality of any of the products offered via our web site.
On rare occasions our suppliers find themselves unable to deliver products to us, or the products delivered are not of sufficient quality or workmanship. We reserve the right to withdraw any products from our web site at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on our web site. Whilst we will make our best efforts to process all orders, there may be exceptional circumstances which mean that we may need to refuse to process an order after we have sent you an order confirmation, which we reserve the right to do at any time, at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any other third party by reason of our withdrawing any product from our web site, whether it has been sold or not, removing or editing any materials or contents on our web site or for refusing to process or accept an order after we have sent you the order confirmation.
Our web site changes regularly
We aim to update our web site regularly, and may change content at any time. If the need arises, we may suspend access to our web site, or close it indefinitely. We will use reasonable endeavours to ensure our web site contains accurate information and content however, we reserve the right to update our web site as soon as an inaccuracy or error is brought to our attention.
Once your order has been placed and your payment processed, we will provide you with an order confirmation by email. This confirmation email does not guarantee that the product(s) you have ordered is/are available. It represents confirmation that we have received your order.
Your order represents an offer to purchase, which we accept when we dispatch your product(s) and send you an email confirming that your product(s) has/have been dispatched. Once this email has been sent and the goods have been handed over to the designated carrier, the contract between you and us is completed. The sale contract is therefore concluded in Victoria, Australia.
If delivery of an order will result in unacceptably high freight charges to Weatherproof Kitchens, we reserve the right to contact you to request further shipping fees or to cancel an order prior to dispatch. If we cancel your order in these circumstances you will be notified prior and a full refund made.
In the unlikely event that a product is unavailable, we reserve the right to cancel your order prior to dispatch. We will contact you by email as soon as possible to let you know. You may choose to have a credit to your account or a refund to the value of the unavailable product.
We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event that we are unable to obtain authorisation for payment, where we suspect fraudulent activity, or where you do not meet the eligibility criteria set out, or otherwise contemplated, within these Terms and Conditions or our web site. We reserve the right to refuse to process or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion.

Our delivery partners may leave a card at the address and you may need to pick up the delivery from your nearest Post Office or contact the courier company to arrange for re-delivery.

International delivery on certain products can be arranged and the appropriate freight/delivery costs will be applied to your order.
Delivery fees and times vary for different products and are calculated based on the size and weight of your order and its destination.
The delivery price for each order will be displayed during the checkout process, prior to payment and order confirmation and included in the total price of your order.
Typically, delivery will be made within 14 days of receiving your payment authorisation and cleared funds.
Depending upon your delivery location or availability of stock, the estimated delivery time frame may be longer. If the delivery time frame falls outside our normal estimated delivery times, a Weatherproof Kitchens Customer Support Officer will advise prior to dispatch.

You agree to this by placing an order with us, we reserve the right to pass on applicable charges to you if you provide wrong address information.
A contact phone number is also required which may be used by the courier or Australia Post to arrange delivery.

The cost of returning all unwanted items (either by post or via courier) will not be covered by Weatherproof Kitchens. Costs form returning goods are the responsibility of you – the customer.
Items returned must be in ‘as-new’ condition. This means you have not used, damaged, or modified any of the items. Please return items secured in their original packaging, if possible.
After your returned item is received and confirmed as being in an ‘as-new’ condition, we will issue you with a refund of the purchase price less the initial delivery fees. If we cannot be satisfied that you purchased the product from us then we will not accept your product for return.
Your Consumer Rights:
The goods you purchase come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. If your product is faulty, broken or otherwise non-compliant with a consumer guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law please contact us as soon as possible with your name and order number.
If your item is broken, faulty or damaged during transit, we will ask you to send us photos of the product and packaging in order that we can assess the fault or damage and communicate with our delivery partners.
The type of remedy we offer will depend upon the circumstances. We may arrange to replace the product (subject to availability) or provide you with a refund of the purchase amount (including the delivery charge).
We may offer a partial refund and work with you to arrange repair of the item by a local tradesperson in your area. If Weatherproof Kitchens specifically requires you to return the product to us, Weatherproof Kitchens will pay the cost of the return.
We reserve the right to refuse a refund in cases where we deem damage to a product to be due to fair wear and tear, misuse, failure to use in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions or failure to take reasonable care.
In some cases products offered for sale on our website may be subject to a separate manufacturer’s warranty. This will be communicated on the relevant product page. In this case we request that you contact the manufacturer directly. If the manufacturer is unable to assist you or you are not happy with the resolution of your issue, please contact us for help. We will be happy to liaise with the manufacturer for you but our liability will be limited to the refund of your purchase price.
Depending upon stock availability Weatherproof Kitchens will arrange an exchange for broken or damaged parts. If a part cannot be exchanged, and falls within the warranty period, a refund or credit may be given.
If an alternative product is available, and is deemed by Weatherproof Kitchens to be an identical product, Weatherproof Kitchens may offer such product as an alternative exchange.
