Returns, Refunds & Warranty Terms & Conditions

RETURNS AND REFUNDS

1. All product returns must be clearly addressed as follows:

IndusTec
“Returns Department”

Call 1300 90 91 44 to organise a return address.

2. Customers must first apply for a return authorisation (RA) number before returning any product. When returning a product, the RA number must be clearly visible outside the packaging. Products returned without an RA number will be rejected. Any returns outside of warranty claims, are subject to our prior approval.

3. You can ask for a replacement or refund if the problem with a product is major. Within ACCC guidelines for refunds the following factors will be taken into account to determine the refund value:
- how much time has passed since the product was purchased
- type of product
- how a consumer is likely to use the product
- the length of time for which it is reasonable for the product to be used
- the amount of use it could reasonably be expected to tolerate before the failure becomes noticeable.

4. For non-faulty returns you can return a product for full refund or credit without incurring a restocking fee if:
- The product has not been opened
- The product is not a special order product (Product is not “order only” status and is stocked by IndusTec)
- The product is returned within 10 business days of purchase

All non-faulty returns not meeting the above criteria will be at IndusTec's discretion and if accepted will attract a restocking fee which is fixed at the lesser of price paid or current market value less 15%.

5. Returns of products that have been dropped/damaged/modified/tampered/manufacturer labels removed will not be accepted. Goods that have already been opened are subject to our testing and approval and may require additional time to process.

6. Advance replacement is only available for certain products where this is stated in the product description. Please contact us for instructions to be provided how to arrange this.

7. If products received are not as per your order, please inform IndusTec within 24 hours of receiving the delivery, do not open any packaging or use the products as it will be deemed as an acceptance of goods and will not be accepted for return. IndusTec may pack non retail boxed items using re-used packaging materials for added protection


8. There will be no credit or refund given on the price difference of the ordered items due to price drops once the product has been processed and shipped out. Prices of gadgets are volatile and we do not control the price fluctuations.

9. We do not accept any returns of any opened and used products that may breach the health & safety regulations such as headsets, ear pieces and headphones, unless the item is faulty.

10. IndusTec reserves the title of ownership for any extra or incorrect goods shipped as result of our error. We will arrange any extra shipments to recover these goods, and cover the cost in resolving this issue.



WARRANTY

1. Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement for a major failure of product. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

2. Upon IndusTec testing the products if the fault is determined as a major failure the customer can choose an identical replacement, or one of similar value if reasonably available

If the fault is determined as a minor failure IndusTec will choose to:
- repair the goods
- replace the goods

3. Some products provide a local or direct manufacturer to customer warranty service. It is the customer choice to either use these services or return the product back to IndusTec. We strongly encourage usage of these services as it generally provides faster turnaround times and may sometimes be an onsite service where the service is performed at the customer’s premises. Please read the manufacturer’s warranty terms and conditions for the specific details.

4. Warranty is provided solely on products sold by IndusTec. Other faulty products used in conjunction that are not purchased from IndusTec will not be covered under warranty.

8. IndusTec does NOT cover any software installation issues e.g. drivers or system software updates for any computer or app on phone where IndusTec did not install the software originally.

9. IndusTec is not responsible for any data loss; backing up of data is the responsibility of the customer. IndusTec does not provide a backup or data recovery service when sending hard disks for warranty claims.

10. Warranty will be rejected for any non-manufacturing defects, if the item is found to be mishandled, modified, tampered, abused, physically damaged, improperly installed and used, or damaged caused by power surges, electrical faults and lightning strikes. Products returned that show evidence of user induced damage, over clocking, tampering or modification, will be denied.

11. Please provide original packaging if possible or adequate safe packaging as insufficient safe packaging will result in warranty being voided should any damage occur in transit.

Any shipping or handling costs will also be chargeable to customer.
