If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions, in whole or in part, please do not use this listing and do not purchase the item listed for sale. All rights not expressly granted in these Terms and Conditions are reserved.
The product you purchase is designed and meant to be used for the following purpose ONLY: observation & photography of stars, planets and other celestial objects at night. Any other use is deemed improper use.
FREIGHT & INSURANCE
- Freight Insurance is not included by default when placing orders - it is an optional service which customers can select at checkout by clicking the “secure your shipment” banner. We strongly suggest that customers add freight insurance when placing orders to fully insure all items against damage and loss in transit. We are not responsible for loss of parcels or damage sustained by parcels as the carrier is responsible. All the items are packed with plenty of protective materials and labelled properly.
- Uninsured items which get damaged or lost in transit will not be repaired or substituted free of charge. Customers will be required to follow up lost-item retrieval with the transport service that lost the item.
- Freight Insurance is 2% of the total value of the purchased goods. This fee protects buyers against possible product damage or loss in transit, however damage caused by 'acts of god' as they are known are not covered by (any) insurance.
- In stocks items are dispatched within 2 business days of finalised payment, tracking is provided at the time of dispatch.
- Items that are sold while not in stock are dispatched within 2 business days of reception by ProAstroz Pty Limited.
- International orders with delivery address outside of Australia: the buyer is responsible for any import duty, fees or other taxes upon arrival. ProAstroz is unable to advise whether a customs duty, fee or tax will be collected upon arrival in the country of destination, as this varies greatly by country and depends on a range of factor. It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure research has been done, prior to purchase, into what fees (if any) will be levied upon arrival. By ordering through the website, the buyer accepts the sole responsibility for any such payment. ProAstroz deducts the cost of GST to any purchase which delivery address is outside of Australia. In the event a package is returned to ProAstroz, a refund will be provided for the cost of the items purchased - please note this does not include the shipping and insurance cost: if a package is returned to ProAstroz, no refund will be provided for the cost of freight and insurance.
