Terms and Conditions of Trading of Lounge Lover Pty Limited
Yes, this is the small print, sorry. Please take a few minutes to read these Terms & Conditions carefully. Your use of our Website, or purchase of Goods from us, constitutes your agreement to these Terms & Conditions. That said, we are a human company and, in the event of any dispute, our first desire is so resolve all matters commercially rather than by relying on all this “legalese”.
1. Terms of sale
- All Goods that we sell, whether online or in our stores, are sold on these Terms & Conditions.
- We may update or modify these Terms & Conditions at any time, without prior notice, by posting the updated or modified version of these Terms & Conditions on our Website.
- The version of these Terms & Conditions that will apply to your order is the version which is available on our Website at the time we accept you order.
- We encourage you to review these Terms & Conditions each time you purchase Goods from us or visit our Website.
2. Online orders
- This clause 2 only applies when you order Goods on our Website.
- You must be at least 18 years of age to order and purchase Goods from our Website.
- Representations made by us via our Website do not constitute an offer to sell but an invitation to treat.
- The reproduction of colours on our Website is as accurate as possible. However, you acknowledge and accept that the actual colour of a Good may vary from what is displayed on your monitor.
- When you place an order, we will send you a confirmation email with the details of your order. That email is not an acceptance of your order. Orders are only accepted when we expressly notify you of our acceptance.
- We reserve the right to accept or decline, in whole or in part, any order placed by you.
- We will notify you as soon as possible about the availability of the Goods you have ordered. If we advise you that the Goods you have ordered are no longer available, your order may be declined.
- If some or all of the Goods you have ordered are temporarily out of stock, we will place those Goods on back order and supply them when stock becomes available; unless you notify us that you wish to cancel the order (which you may do any time before the Goods are shipped).
- Not withstanding any other clause in these Terms & Conditions, for Goods you order on our Website, you must enter your payment details at the time you place your order.
- Subject to clause 6 below, you irrevocably waive any claim against us in respect of shortage of any Goods delivered to you, if no claim in respect of short delivery has been lodged with us, in writing, within seven days of the date of receipt of your order.
- The descriptions, illustrations and performances contained in any of our catalogues, price lists and other advertising material do not form part of:
- any contract of sale of the Goods; or
- the description applied to the Goods.
- If Designs are supplied by you, you acknowledge and agree that:
- you are solely responsible for the accuracy and completeness of the Designs;
- to the maximum extent permitted by law, we are not responsible for any loss or damage suffered by you in respect of the supply of Goods which are based on your Designs, if such Goods are unsuitable or unusable for any reason;
- we may refuse any order where, in our opinion, you have failed to provide us sufficient detail in the Designs;
- our prices are based on the Designs as you initially provide them to us and our prices may increase or decrease if you change the Designs after providing them to us; and
- notwithstanding anything else in these Terms & Conditions, we are under no obligation to accept any changes to the Designs once:
- we have placed an order for any special materials that may be required to fulfil your order; or
- the manufacturing of the Goods according to the original Designs has already commenced.
- You warrant that your Designs do not infringe any copyright or other intellectual property rights of any third party.
- You indemnify us again any and all costs suffered by us as a result of, or in connection with, our use of the Designs you supply to us.
- All specifications (including any information, technical information, specification, drawings, descriptions, illustrations, dimensions or recommendations) given by us are estimates only. We are under no liability for damages for failure of the Goods to meet such specifications, unless otherwise specifically guaranteed by us in writing. You acknowledge and agree that any such guarantees given by us are subject to reasonable tolerances and margins of error.
- Fabric batches may vary in colour and texture.
- Whilst we guarantee to make all your order from the same batch, we cannot guarantee that subsequent orders will match your original order.
- We cannot accept any responsibility for fading or discolouration, due to exposure to direct or indirect sunlight. Sunlight affects different fabrics in different ways, but sunlight, whether direct or indirect, will nevertheless always affect fabric colour.
- We cannot accept any responsibility for fading or discolouration, due to exposure or contact with any chemicals sprayed nearby or applied directly. Please also note that there are certain aerosol sprays, most particularly odour neutralisers and nicotine neutralisers that contain certain chemicals that can react with fabric dyes (the cans should warn against spraying close to upholstery without first covering it).
- We recommend that you dry clean sofa covers.
- You acknowledge and agree that Goods may not be available for immediate delivery.
- Delivery times provided to you are estimates only. We are not liable for any loss, damage or delay arising from late delivery, non-delivery or late installation of the Goods.
- When delivering outside the Sydney Metropolitan area Lounge Lovers Pty Ltd will use reasonable endeavours to deliver on the specified delivery date, however this cannot be guaranteed and Lounge Lover Pty Ltd accepts no liability in relation to any damage or loss incurred due to non-delivery.
- We will deliver your Goods to your property. On occasion we will be able to deliver into the room of your choice, but we cannot accept any liability for damages within the property.
- It is your responsibility to check the condition of the Goods at the location where we deliver (this can either be you personally, or a representative on your behalf). Liability for the Goods becomes yours when the Dispatch Note is signed either by you or your agent.
- If we accidentally damage Goods in the course of delivery, then our liability for that damage is limited to our choice of the repair, refund or replacement of the Goods.
- Unless we otherwise agree in writing, we may, at our option, deliver the Goods to you in any number of instalments.
- For clarity, if we deliver any of the Goods by instalments and any one of those instalments is defective for any reason:
- it is not a repudiation of any contract of sale formed by these Terms & Conditions; and
- the defective instalment is a severable breach that gives rise only to a claim for compensation.
- You must provide adequate parking and facilities for unloading the Goods at the place you specify. Delivery and installation fees are based on reasonable access being provided at the delivery address. In the event that reasonable access has not been provided additional charges may be payable.
- We reserve the right to recover any fair and reasonable costs associated with a failed delivery attempt.
- If we are required, or our employees or agents are required, to wait at the delivery point in excess of 15 minutes, we may require you to pay us a stand-by fee as per our then applicable stand-by rates.
- Delivery is deemed to have commenced once the Goods have either left our warehouse or a booking has been confirmed with a 3rd party transport provider.
- Should an order be cancelled after delivery has commenced we reserve the right to recover any fair and reasonable costs associated with that cancellation.
- We must be in receipt of cleared funds prior to arranging your delivery.
