Shipping Policy

  1. Postage and delivery

We post products within Australia only. We use delivery service providers to help us get our products to you.

  1. Rates

You agree to pay to us postage fees as calculated at check out.

As you know, technology is great but it’s not infallible. If there’s an error in the calculation of your postage costs, we’ll contact you before processing your order to discuss options (such as paying any additional costs or modifying your order).

Our delivery service providers may change their fees from time to time, and so you acknowledge and agree that we can vary the postage fees applicable to orders at any time on notice, and that such notice is given by posting the updated postage fees on the Website.

  1. Dispatch Timeframes

We process all orders within 48 hours of receipt of payment. Once an order is processed, we’ll do our best to dispatch orders on the same business day or the next business day.

We ask for your patience as this handling period may vary, for example, if we have a high volume of orders.

You acknowledge that we’re not liable for any delay in dispatch of your order.

  1. Delivery Timeframes

Delivery times will vary between orders – we’ll do our best to let you know when to expect your delivery, however this is largely dependent on the delivery service provider. As a guide, your orders should arrive within 2-10 days after dispatch, unless advised otherwise.

  1. Delivery Address

It’s your responsibility to make sure that your postal address details are correct- we won’t be responsible for any incorrect or failed delivery if you don’t supply current, accurate postal address details. If your order is undelivered due to your error and returned to us, we reserve the right to require you to pay further postage fees or terminate this agreement and issue a refund in accordance with this agreement.

  1. Orders Lost in Transit

When we dispatch your order, we will give you a tracking code for you to track the progress of your order.

If you’re concerned that your order has been lost or misdelivered, we ask that you contact us as soon as possible, so that we can investigate. You understand that while we’ll investigate your missing order, we make no representations as to responsibility or liability for any lost or misdelivered order. In the event of items lost or damaged in transit, you acknowledge that our liability is limited to the amount of any compensation we are able to recover from the delivery service provider, less our reasonable costs of investigating and applying for any compensation, unless otherwise required by law.

  1. Risk

Risk in each order passes to you on delivery to your nominated address. You must sign for your delivery, unless you’ve given authority to leave unattended. If you’ve authorised us or our agents to leave your order unattended at that address, the order will be taken to have been delivered on leaving the order at the address. If you ask us to deliver to an address and you’re not there, but someone else at the address signs for the parcel, the order will be taken to have been delivered on leaving the order with that person.

If we accept a return of any goods, risk in those goods will revert to us on our confirmation of receipt of the returned goods. We recommend you insure goods you return to us against loss or damage in transit.

  1. Events beyond control

As in life, sometimes circumstances beyond our control (strikes, floods, fires and extreme weather events, computer malfunctions, failure of service providers to perform services or injury or illness of key personnel) get in the way. If circumstances we can’t control affect our ability to dispatch your order, you release us from any obligation to dispatch your order while those circumstances continue.  While they continue, we may choose to cancel your order, or otherwise to complete your order once things have returned to normal. If we expect a major delay, we’ll contact you to discuss a suitable solution.

  1. Advice and information

We may give you advice, recommendations, information or assistance in relation to products on our Website, their use or application. We give that information to you in good faith, believing it’s accurate, appropriate and reliable at the time but we don’t give any warranty of accuracy, appropriateness or reliability. Information and advice we give is general in nature and is not intended to constitute or substitute for professional or medical advice. You should seek appropriate professional or medical advice if necessary. We won’t accept any liability or responsibility (including liability for negligence) for any loss suffered because of your or any other person’s reliance on information or advice we provide on our Website, unless otherwise required by law.

  1. Australian Consumer Law

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law, which forms Schedule 2 to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (ACL). If you are an Australian consumer for the purposes of the ACL, you are entitled to replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. 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.

Nothing in these terms excludes any right, guarantee or warranty you’re entitled to by law, however we do exclude all other guarantees, conditions and warranties to the maximum extent permitted by law. We also specifically exclude liability for negligence.

Wherever possible, our liability for breach of any condition, warranty or guarantee is limited, at our option, to:

  • replacement of the product;
  • repair of the product;
  • payment of the cost of having the product repaired; or
  • such other fair and reasonable remedy as we are ready and willing to provide.

We won’t be liable for any consequential loss or damage or other direct or indirect loss or damage, except where we are unable to limit or exclude such loss under the ACL.

If for any reason the ACL doesn’t apply to an order you place with us (for example, if you purchase the product for re-sale with our authorisation or if you are purchasing from outside Australia), then we exclude all liability to you and we’ll only refund an order placed if we can’t fill it, if we think it’s reasonable to do so, or otherwise as agreed in writing. Please choose carefully as we do not offer refunds for change of mind.

To make an ACL-related claim, please contact us at info@purebulkfoods.com.au or 02 4302 9081.

  1. Refund Procedure

We aim to ensure our customers are happy with all products and orders. If your goods are damaged or incorrect in any way on delivery, please contact us as soon as possible to arrange a suitable remedy. We will require a photo of any damaged products and may ask for the return of damaged or incorrect products back to us. In some cases, the cost of return shipping may be the customer’s responsibility.

You are required to inform us of any fault with the goods upon delivery or within 24 hours of delivery. Please contact us at info@purebulkfoods.com.au and we will be happy to assist you.

  1. Intellectual property

You acknowledge and agree that all intellectual property rights owned by us or to which we are entitled before and after this agreement will remain our sole property and that nothing in this agreement transfers any ownership in our intellectual property rights to you.

  1. Dispute resolution

If a dispute arises out of these conditions or if you are unhappy with your product for any reason, we ask that you contact us in the first instance and we will do our best to resolve the issue to our mutual satisfaction quickly, cheaply and efficiently. If we’re not able to resolve it within thirty (30) days, we’ll go to mediation in New South Wales (unless we agree to an alternative venue in writing) and split the costs of that equally. If the dispute still isn’t resolved within thirty (30) days of the mediation, either of us can ask the mediator to terminate the mediation and the mediator must do so.

Each of us agree that we won’t commence any proceedings in a Court or Tribunal until we’ve complied with this clause (unless of course we’re seeking interlocutory relief).

  1. Variation

We can change these conditions at any time by updating this document and giving notice to you by posting a copy on the Website. The changes will take effect immediately on their being posted.

  1. Severance

If any part of these conditions is found to be void or unenforceable by a Court of competent jurisdiction, that part will be severed, and the rest of the agreement will remain in force.

  1. Termination

We may terminate this agreement at any time on notice to you. All disclaimers and limitations of liability will survive termination. On giving such notice, we’ll refund any amounts paid by you in respect of undelivered goods.

  1. Jurisdiction

As we are based in New South Wales, these terms will be governed by the laws of New South Wales. In the event of any dispute, we ask that you first contact us, and we’ll do our best to resolve the dispute to our mutual satisfaction quickly, cheaply and efficiently. If we do end up in court, you agree that the exclusive venue for resolving any dispute will be in the courts of New South Wales and courts of appeal from them.
