(a) The deposit is payable immediately upon our receipt of your Order; and
(b) The balance payable is due upon us providing you with written notification that the Goods are ready for shipping; and
(c) Our obligation to supply the Goods, and any further Goods or Services (including Warranty repairs) remains conditional upon receipt of all balances outstanding in relation to your order.
3.5 You agree that no title in the Goods shall pass until you have made all payments due under this Agreement, and, until that time, if you have received any Goods, you hold them on trust for us and in a fiduciary capacity ending only when payment has been made in full for the Goods. You must not use Goods which have not been paid for in full, unless agreed otherwise in advance of use.
3.6 If any amount remains outstanding beyond the due date of payment agreed when the order was placed, any discounts applied at the time of purchase will expire (including wholesale pricing) and the full RRP at the final date of payment (or, if higher, the full RRP at the order date) will be due.

4. Shipping and delivery
4.1 Overseas shipping, customs, and logistics activities are outside our control. As such, we are unable to offer any warranty or representation regarding the delivery schedule for Goods which have not yet arrived at our warehouse or the warehouse of our Australian supplier.
4.2 Many of the products we offer are innovative and cutting-edge products offered by exciting new startup businesses. Such startups may overestimate the maturity of their products, overestimate their delivery capacity and are often at the mercy of their upstream suppliers. As such, whilst we can pass on the manufacturers' target timeframes, we are unable to provide any warranty or representation regarding when the finalised product will leave the production line and be available to ship or deliver.
4.3 While we use best endeavours to ensure that shipping occurs within a reasonable period of time and close to the estimated shipping time, we do not provide any warranty or representation as to the time for delivery of the Goods where the shipping is being performed by the manufacturer or a third party shipping company and the delay arises for a reason outside of our control.
4.4 You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for any damage which occurs to the Goods during delivery and that you have been offered the opportunity to purchase your own insurance coverage for this risk.
4.5 We engage the services of a third party company for delivery of Goods such as Australia Post, Couriers Please, Fastway, TNT, Toll and others. These companies may or may not accept any special instructions regarding delivery, and, even when they do, they may or may not deliver in accordance with such instructions. We do not have control over these companies other than to discontinue their use, but we have found that the level of service across the industry is comparable from one company to another.
4.6 In the event that you nominate delivery to be made in your absence, for example having the Goods left outside your premises, in a carport or other area, you accept full responsibility for any damage or theft which may occur as a result of that direction.
4.7 In the event that any delivery or shipping to you cannot be completed and the Goods are held for delivery at a later date and there are storage charges incurred, you agree to pay for such storage costs reasonably incurred.
4.8 In the event that any delivery or shipping to you cannot be completed and the Goods are returned to us, you agree to pay for any storage, shipping, delivery, handling or re-delivery charges related to the return of the Goods to us.
4.9 In the event that we are unable to identify a third party company who can reasonably deliver the Goods to your nominated delivery address (which may occur when Goods are oversized or contain lithium batteries), we will contact you to agree either an alternate delivery address or a refund. In the case of an alternative delivery address, if there is a difference in the price of shipping and delivery, that will be charged or refunded prior to delivery.
4.10 In the event that the price charged to you for shipping and delivery is lower than the price quoted to us by our third party shipping company, we may contact you to request payment of the difference, no higher than our cost price, or cancel the order and issue a refund. This is not common since the prices we charge are usually retrieved through a real-time pricing engine connected directly to our third party shipping company systems. However, international shipping prices of large watercraft and lithium batteries are often manually calculated and are usually based on shipping to major metro centres. If your delivery address is a long way from your country's major air or sea port, or prices were otherwise not quoted correctly, you may be required to pay additional delivery charges.
4.11 The Kymera Body Board may only be shipped to the following countries, as stated clearly in the product description: Australia, Fiji, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, The Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, as well as the islands and island nations which are governed or jointly-governed by them, e.g. Cook Islands (NZ). Any orders placed for the Kymera Body Board to be shipped to another country may be canceled and a refund issued, minus administration charges.
4.12 By default, Goods are shipped with "Authority to leave" in your absence, with no signature required. If this is not acceptable, please specify that you "require a signature upon delivery" when checking out.
5. Refunds, Licensing and Registration
5.1 If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the Goods supplied to you, you must contact us and provide details of your concern. In the event you are entitled to return the Goods you agree to pay shipping costs to return the Goods to us in the first instance.
5.2 We are not required to provide a refund or replacement if you change your mind. But you can choose a refund or exchange if an item has a major problem. This is when the item:
• has a problem that would have stopped someone from buying the item if they had known about it;
• is unsafe;
• is significantly different from the sample or description; or
• doesn’t do what we said it would, or what you asked for, and can’t be easily fixed.
Alternatively, you can choose to keep the item and we will compensate you for any drop in value. If the problem is not major, we will repair the item within a reasonable time. If it is not repaired in a reasonable time you can choose a refund or replacement.
5.3 In the event that any operator licensing or vessel registration is required by any Government authority or agency, you agree that you will take all steps to procure such license or registration prior to using the Goods. You further agree to use the Goods in accordance with all applicable local laws, rules, and regulations.
6.1 All Goods provided by us come with a one year parts and labour private recreational warranty with services to be provided by a Wavez-approved service centre. You can claim on your warranty by notifying us by email or phone of the nature of the issue. We will identify your nearest Wavez-approved service centre and advise them of the issue and our recommendations regarding resolution.

6.8 You may be entitled to the benefit of statutory warranties and Consumer Guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law in relation to the supply of the Goods which may not be excluded under this Agreement and no part of this agreement is intended to derogate from any condition, warranty or guarantee that you are entitled to under the Australian Consumer Law save that our sole liability in respect of any breach of a condition, warranty or guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law is limited to the replacement of the Goods, the supply of equivalent Goods, payment of the cost of replacing the Goods or acquiring equivalent Goods, or the repair of the Goods or the payment of the cost of having the Goods repaired.
