Consumer Guarantees – Your Right to a Refund, Replacement or Credit
The Australian Consumer Law (ACL) is the national law for fair trading and consumer protection. Nothing in these Terms excludes, restricts, or modifies any right, remedy or consumer guarantee available to you under the ACL.
You are entitled to a refund, replacement or credit from Bamboo Collection when a product fails to meet one of the automatic consumer guarantees provided under the ACL, including that:
- The product is faulty or of unacceptable quality;
- The product does not match the product description; and
- The product is unfit for the intended purpose (does not do what it is meant to);
The consumer guarantees will not apply where you have:
- caused the product to become damaged (such as using the product in a way that it is not intended to be used);
- have mistreated or abused the product (intentionally or unintentionally);
- received what you asked for but changed your mind, found it cheaper elsewhere or decided you do not like the product; or
- knew of or were made aware of the faults before you bought the product.
You will be required to provide proof of purchase if you wish to claim a refund, replacement or credit from Bamboo Collection.
To be eligible for a return, the product(s) must be unopened, unused and in its original packaging. If you wish to apply for a refund, please contact us and will we provide instructions for where to send the item(s).
Please note that we do not cover the cost of shipping associated with sending the goods back to us for a refund. If your refund is approved, the initial cost that we incurred with shipping will be deducted from the amount initially paid. We will notify you via email if/when your refund has been processed. The funds will be returned via the original method of payment (i.e. whatever method you used to pay for the order). The refund, if applicable, may take a few days to process or appear back on your card/funding account.
If your item gets lost in transit when being mailed back to us, we will not be liable for the cost of your loss. You may want to consider purchasing tracking/insurance for your item in case this happens.
Limitation of Liability
Where an Act of Parliament suggests any term, condition or warranty in the Terms and liability cannot be excluded, the liability of Bamboo Collection will be limited.
Bamboo Collection’s total liability shall in no circumstances exceed:
- in the case of products, the replacement of the products or the supply of equivalent products, the repair of the products, the payment of the cost of replacing the products or of acquiring equivalent products, or the payment of the cost of having the products repaired; or
- in the case of services, the supplying of the services again, or the payment of the cost of having the services supplied again.
You indemnify and hold us and our related entities, affiliates, and our and their respective officers, agents, and employees, harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, proceedings, losses and damages (actual, special and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, including reasonable legal fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms or your breach of any law or the rights of a third party.
Coupons and Discount Codes
Bamboo Collection may issue coupons or discount codes from time to time for use on the Website (Discount Codes).
- Cannot be applied to previously placed orders;
- Cannot be used in conjunction with other offers, unless otherwise specified on the Discount Code;
- Are not transferrable (unless otherwise specified on the Discount Code) or redeemable for cash or credit; and
- Must be entered prior to completing your order.
- Modify the terms of, cancel or restrict the use of Discount Codes at any time for whatever reason;
- Exclude certain Products from Discount Codes.
We try to ensure that all products are delivered in a prompt and timely manner. However, from time to time, it is possible that shipping and other factors outside of our control may result in delays. Bamboo Collection does not accept any liability for loss or damage suffered by anyone as a result of any such delays and we shall not be liable for any inaccuracy of information provided in relation to the date and time of delivery.
We stock products both locally and internationally. All products are shipped individually regardless of whether the products are part of the same order, so items may arrive at different times because of this. Due to the time it takes for international deliveries to arrive, our shipping policy/time-frame is 3-6 business days for local products and 13-20 business days for international products. If for whatever reason the item(s) are not delivered, get lost, or are damaged during delivery, we will offer a full refund. Where damage occurs during transit, the customer must supply photographic evidence of damage and must alert us of the damage on the same day that the delivery is marked as complete by the courier. We will not be able to offer refunds for orders that become affected by logistics delays outside of our control (for example, but not limited to, global pandemics such as COVID-19, disaster-related delays, etc). In cases such as these, the customer will need to exercise patience and wait for the deliveries to be completed.
Bamboo Collection reserves the right not to ship to remote or rural locations.
If you’ve placed an order with us and then wish to cancel, we do allow for this to happen, but only if you cancel within 12 hours of order placement. However, this is subject to the following:
- If your request is seen by our Customer Support personnel on time where we can actually do something about it. So please email us immediately if you change your mind so that we are able to see your request before it is processed, at which point it will be too late to cancel.
- If your order has not already been placed with our supplier(s).
We will do our best to refund you if you change your mind within the aforementioned parameters, but please note that this is not something that we can guarantee and we reserve the right to refuse cancellation. We have made it clear to customers what the shipping timeframe is for each product on the cart and checkout pages, so if you want to cancel your order based on this, then we reserve the right to deny this request to the due diligence we have already performed to make customers aware of this.
If any portion of the Terms deemed to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that will not affect or impair the validity, legality or enforceability of the remaining terms and those remaining terms shall remain in full force and effect.
