12. Statutory Conditions and Warranty / Refunds / Shipping

The Australian Consumer Law ("Law") which forms part of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) implies into consumer contracts certain statutory conditions and warranties which cannot be excluded, restricted or modified. These are in addition to any voluntary warranties offered by the manufacturer or supplier. Where there is a breach of such a warranty relating to goods or services, and the breach is in terms of the Australian Consumer Law, a "major" failure, then the remedy will be limited to a refund or a replacement, at your election. In all other cases, a breach of such warranty will give rise to a refund or replacement at our election.

As supplier, we provide the following express warranties subject to the following terms and conditions:

  • We will refund or replace the product as the case may be (with us or you deciding and determining the action to be taken according to whether the failure is major or non-major, as stated above) in the circumstances and to the extent required under the Law if the product you receive does not match the sample or description, is substantially unfit for its intended or disclosed purpose or is not of acceptable quality (as defined in the Law), is unsafe, or if the alleged issue with the product is such that a reasonable consumer aware of the issue would not have acquired the product.
  • Where a refund or replacement is to be provided under the terms of this warranty, we may to the extent permitted under the Law require the return of the product to us before refunding or replacing it. We will pay for, or reimburse you for, any shipping costs to return the original product to us.
  • Replacement products are subject to the same warranties as the original.
  • You must retain your proof of purchase for any manufacturer warranty claims.
  • Refunds will be issued by direct deposit or cheque at our discretion.

In order to obtain these remedies:

  • You must notify us within a reasonable time of supply of the goods. In this context a 'reasonable time' is from the time of supply until a time that it would be reasonable to expect the relevant failure to become apparent, considering the nature of goods. In many cases this will be 7 to 14 days, but in some circumstances may be longer. Please contact us via online@marshere.com.au. Once contacted we will advise you of the best way to return any products. We may not accept products returned without a Return Authorisation Number.
  • Except if and to the extent the Law requires otherwise, replacement of products or refund and reimbursement of freight costs will not be made until the original product is received by us and your claim verified.
  • We aim to process refunds and replacements within 28 days of receipt by us of the original product.
  • We will not refund or replace a product where in our reasonable opinion the product has following sale to you become of unacceptable quality due to fair wear and tear, misuse, failure to use in accordance with manufacturer's instructions, using it in an abnormal way or failure to take reasonable care.
