ORDERS

You can place an order for the Products by following the instructions on the Harman Store (“Order”). We will email you an order confirmation after we have received your Order (“Order Confirmation”). An Order Confirmation or processing of your Order does not constitute acceptance of your Order.

(a) delivering the Product to you and sending you a shipment confirmation email; or

(b) providing a Service to you.

For purposes of these Terms and Conditions, reference to “Service” means the performance of a task, assistance, or access to a resource (such as access to an information database) that we make available to you.

We reserve the right (at our sole discretion) to decline, reject or limit your Order, for various

reasons including if:

  • (a) you do not accept these Terms and Conditions (including the Privacy Policy);
  • (b) you do not provide a valid shipping address within Australia;
  • (c) your payment for the Order is unsuccessful;
  • (d) the Product or Service you have ordered is not available or will not be available within thirty (30) days;
  • (e) the information you provided us is incomplete or inaccurate, or
  • (f) if there are any errors in connection with your Order or the Harman Store.

If we decline, reject or limit your Order after you have made payment, we will notify you and refund the amount paid. If there are any errors on the Harman Store that affects your Order or if there has been an error in the price of the Product you ordered, we reserve the right to correct the error and will endeavour to notify you of the same. In such case, you may either choose to purchase the Product at the correct price or information, or cancel your Order and we refund you the amount paid.

CONTRACT

(a) Your Order; (b) these Terms and Conditions; (c) our Privacy Policy, and (d) any associated Harman warranty statements, licence agreements, applicable attachments and documents created pursuant to these Terms and Conditions, will form the contract between us (the “Contract”). Any additional documents or communications are not valid or binding on us unless expressly agreed in writing by us.

PRICES AND OFFERS

All prices are in Australian dollars and unless specified otherwise, include all applicable taxes and standard delivery charges. All promotional prices are final prices and cannot be combined with other existing promotional offers. Offers, prices, specifications and availability may change or be withdrawn without notice.

We take no responsibility for any editorial, photographic or typographic errors, and may correct any errors and change or update information on the Harman Store without prior notice. Subject to a reduction in price in accordance with the succeeding paragraph below or unless a change in price is caused by our error, any change in Product price will not affect you once we have issued you with an Order Confirmation.

If the price of a Harman Product or Service (excluding items on clearance, promotion or discount) is reduced on the Harman Store after you have purchased it from us, you may contact us to request for a refund of the difference in the amount paid and the reduced sum within seven (7) days of delivery of the Product or Service. For clarity, this is not a price match guarantee and we will not match the prices offered by other retailers for the same Product.

PAYMENT

The total amount specified on the checkout page is the amount payable. We accept payment by valid Australian-issued Visa and Master credit cards. Your credit card will be charged at the point of purchase. We are not liable for any fees incurred by you as a result of your chosen payment method. In certain circumstances, we may require a re-authorisation for your chosen method of payment. However, you will not be charged twice if this occurs.

SHIPMENT AND DELIVERY

Freight charges associated with non-standard shipping are your responsibility. We will inform you of such freight charges at the time you place your Order. All deliveries require a signature therefore you are required to ensure that someone is present to accept delivery.

After placing an order, you will receive an Order Confirmation email providing you with a unique reference number. Once your Order has been shipped, you will receive an Order shipment email confirming your freight consignment number for freight tracking with our freight provider.

Delivery time depends on the delivery location and is estimated to be one(1) week after shipment to most major metropolitan areas, and two (2) weeks after shipment to other areas. Items in your Order may be shipped together or separately. If your Order is not delivered within thirty (30) days from payment, you are entitled to cancel your Order and we will provide you with a refund.

If a Product is found to be faulty, you are entitled to have the Product repaired, replaced or a refund in accordance to your rights under law. All refunds will be made via the payment method used for the original transaction.

If we reasonably determine after inspection that the Product is not faulty, or if the fault is caused by you, or is a fault that is not covered under the Product warranty, we reserve the right to refuse a refund, replacement or repair and to charge you the cost of collecting the Product from and returning it to you plus any costs of inspecting the Product.
