1 Your legal rights
Your purchase of Goods or Services will be subject to certain laws including, without limitation, the Australian Consumer Law. The Australian Consumer Law provides you with certain rights that cannot be excluded, including that the Goods or Services must be of acceptable quality, reasonably fit for the purpose that QHC represents they will be fit for and that the Goods or Services will correspond with any description. Nothing in these Terms or Conditions shall be read or applied so as to exclude, restrict, modify or have the effect of excluding, restricting or modifying any condition, warranty, guarantee, right or remedy implied by law (including the Australian Consumer Law) which cannot by law be excluded, restricted or modified.
2 Pricing & taxes
2.1 Prices for Goods or Services are shown on the website.
2.2 QHC reserves the right to change the prices of Goods or Services at any time without notice to you. The price displayed at the time you place your order will continue to apply to you even if the price changes before your order is accepted by QHC.
2.3 In addition to the price of Goods, you will also need to pay the advertised delivery charge (if any) (“Delivery Charge”). Any Delivery Charge will appear in your shopping cart.
2.4 If QHC agrees to deliver the Goods outside of Australia, international delivery charges will apply (“International Delivery Charges”). International Delivery Charges will appear in your shopping cart.
2.5 By placing an order, you agree to pay the price for the Goods, any Delivery Charge or any International Delivery Charge.
2.6 All prices, Delivery Charges and International Delivery Charges quoted are in Australian dollars and are inclusive of GST.
3.1 You can place an order by following the instructions on the rhettogston.com or UEFT website.
3.2 An order submitted by you is an offer by you to purchase the Goods or Services for the price plus the Delivery Charge or International Delivery Charge (and GST) as shown at the time of submission of your order. QHC may accept or reject your offer in its absolute discretion. In particular, but without limitation, QHC may reject orders for commercial quantities of Goods or Services. If you wish to order commercial quantities of Goods or Services, please contact a QHC representative on 03 9533 7284.
3.3 Each order you place, if accepted by QHC, will be a separate and binding agreement between you and QHC with respect to the supply of Goods or Services, in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
3.4 If you place an order for someone else to receive the Goods or Services, you must obtain their consent before providing QHC with their personal information and, by placing an order, you confirm to QHC that you have done this.
3.5 Various Commonwealth, State and Territory laws provide that certain goods and services may only be sold to persons over a particular age (“Restricted Goods or Services”). By placing an order for any Restricted Goods or Services you warrant to QHC that you are of an authorised age. When placing an order for Restricted Goods or Services you warrant that you are not obtaining the Goods or Services on behalf of a person who is not eligible to purchase the Restricted Goods or Services themselves.
3.6 Please ensure that you enter all information carefully when placing an order. You warrant to QHC that all information provided by you in relation to each order is complete, true and accurate to enable the processing and delivery of your order. Except to the extent otherwise required by law, QHC will not be liable to you for your loss or that of any third party for a delay or failure to process, fulfil or deliver Goods or Services to you (or your nominated recipient) due to inaccurate or incomplete details provided in respect of an order by you. QHC will use reasonable endeavours to cancel or change the order if it has not already been shipped but makes no representation that it will be able to do this.
3.7 Where you place consecutive or separate orders, the Goods will be delivered separately and a separate Delivery Charge (or International Delivery Charge if applicable) will apply to each order. QHC cannot consolidate separate orders into one delivery.
3.8 Where you order more than one item in one order, all Goods for which your order is accepted at the time will be dispatched together where practicable. However, in some cases, Goods may be dispatched separately, for example: in order to ensure you receive the Goods as promptly as possible; where the Goods are being dispatched from different locations; or where the Goods are of different types. Please note that Delivery Charges and International Delivery Charges are weight based and consequently you may be required to pay a separate Delivery Charge or International Delivery Charge, if applicable, regardless of whether they are delivery to you separately or in one delivery.
3.9 You acknowledge that all Goods or Services that you order are intended for personal, domestic, non-commercial use only and quantity restrictions may apply as set out on the website from time to time.
3.10 You acknowledge that the internet can be an unstable, and sometimes insecure, marketplace. At times the facility to place orders may not be available, your order may not be received, your order may be lost or misdirected or your order may be delayed.
3.11 You must take your own precautions to ensure that the process which you employ for accessing the website does not expose you to risk of viruses, malicious computer code or other forms of interference which may damage your computer system and contains appropriate protection to prevent damage to your computer system caused by viruses, malicious computer code or other forms of interference.
3.12 Except to the extent otherwise required by law, QHC will not be liable to you, or any other person, for any loss, damage, cost or expense arising out of or in connection with any of the events set out in clause 3.10 or arising out of or in connection with you accessing the website.
4.1 QHC reserves the right to accept or reject your order for any reason at any time.

QHC will not be liable to you for your loss or that of any third party for the rejection of an order.
4.4 QHC will process payment for your order immediately before dispatch of the Goods or Services to you. At this time, QHC will send you an email confirming that payment has been made and that the Goods or Services have been dispatched, together with an invoice for your order. This email represents confirmation that your order has been accepted.
5.1 You must pay for Goods or Services by credit card or prepaid payment cards (as listed on the website from time to time). QHC uses the secure third party payment processors such as PayPal or eWAY for all online transactions (for further information about eWAY please visit www.eWAY.com.au). The name on the credit card/payment card must match the name on the order. By providing your credit card/payment card, you authorise QHC to deduct the price and the applicable delivery charge(s) from such card.
5.2 QHC reserves the right to change the payment methods that can be used for orders at any time in its absolute discretion.
5.3 QHC may not be able to, or may decline to, accept payment from you by your nominated payment method at any time, for any reason, including, without limitation:
(a) where fraud detection systems detect possible irregularities;
(b) because your financial institution has declined payment;
(c) because your payment card has expired. Where this is the case, your order will be placed on hold and QHC will contact you to ask you to provide additional information (e.g. proof of identity documents) or arrange payment by another method. If you are unable to comply with such a request within the timescale specified, your order may be cancelled.
5.4 Goods or Services that you have ordered will not be dispatched to you until your payment for the Goods or Services has cleared. If your payment cannot be processed, your order will be rejected and QHC will notify you.

(b) An event beyond QHC control, such as storm, fire, flood, earthquake, terrorism, power failure, war, strike or failure of computer systems, means that QHC is unable to supply the Goods or Services within a reasonable time;
