You can access this Agreement at any time from any page of the Site.
We make every effort to ensure all information on this site is accurate and up to date. However, in the event a product is listed at an incorrect price, or with incorrect information, Four Acres Limited shall have the right to refuse or cancel any order placed for product listed at the incorrect price. Four Acres Limited shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such order whether or not any such order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for such purchase and your order is cancelled, Four Acres Limited shall refund the amount of the charge.
All prices in the shopping areas are in New Zealand dollars (NZ$) and include GST (at 15% New Zealand sales tax for local sales and 0% for export sales). Subject to the previous clause, all prices are correct at time of publication and the prices published on the Site at the time and date of the purchase will be the final price paid. The time and date of purchase is the time and date we confirm your order by sending goods to you. However we reserve the right to alter prices for any reason.
Risk of Loss
In the case of all items purchased from Four Acres Limited, the risk of loss and title for such items passes to you upon our delivery to the carrier. Four Acres Limited is deemed to have fulfilled its obligations to deliver the goods when they are handed to the carrier.
Four Acres Limited shall arrange an agent to deliver the goods to the address stated on the order or as agreed by Four Acres Limited in writing. Four Acres Limited shall deliver the goods by such carrier and such form of transport Four Acres Limited consider to be appropriate or as selected by the customer during the sales process. For items to be shipped overseas, the terms of delivery are FCA (Free Carrier) as defined by INCOTERMS 2000. That is, Four Acres Limited delivers the goods, cleared for export, to the carrier nominated by the buyer at the named place. Four Acres Limited will not be responsible for any part delivery or delay in delivery of the goods as a result of events occurring beyond Four Acres Limitedís control. Four Acres Limited shall not be in any way responsible for any losses, damages, costs or other consequences (direct or indirect) arising from such delay or non-delivery.
The Customer agrees to inform Four Acres Limited within 30 days of the date of invoice if proof of shipment is required.
If you are acquiring goods from us for on-sale, or otherwise for business purposes, the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 does not apply. Nothing in these terms and conditions is intended to be inconsistent with consumersí rights under the Consumer Guarantees Act and in the event of any inconsistency the Act overrides the relevant part of these terms and conditions. In any case, where the Consumer Guarantees Act does apply, if any of the goods fail to comply with any guarantee in the Consumer Guarantees Act, Four Acres Limited will repair or replace those goods. The Customer acknowledges that Four Acres Limited does not provide any Express Guarantees (as defined in that Act) other than those expressly confirmed by Four Acres Limited in writing;
If the Customer supplies the goods to any person, the Customer must not give or make any undertaking assertion or representation in relation to the goods without Four Acres Limitedís prior approval in writing, and the Customer must give the person buying the goods such product information relating to the goods as Four Acres Limited requires, and the Customer agrees to indemnify Four Acres Limited against any loss, liability or cost incurred by Four Acres Limited under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 or otherwise as a result of any breach by the Customer of these obligations.
Return of Goods
Four Acres Limited will replace any defective goods at no cost to the purchaser. Please contact Four Acres Limited on +64 9 6232963 for detailed instructions should you require assistance.
Four Acres Limited will not accept the return of non-defective goods (such as where the Customer has ordered the wrong size or colour) for credit or any other purpose unless Four Acres Limited agrees to accept the return of the goods and advises the Customer a return advice number prior to the return of goods. Return of goods will only be accepted for credit or exchange within 14 days of delivery, unless due to Four Acres Limitedís error. Return freight will be at Four Acres Limitedís cost only when there has been an error on Four Acres Limitedís part.
No returned goods shall be accepted by Four Acres Limited (even if Four Acres Limited agree to do so) if they have been tampered with by you or any other person and are not as new, if they are goods expressly sold on a non-return basis, or if they are not accompanied by the return advice number referred to above. Where goods are returned to Four Acres Limited but not accepted as above, they shall be returned to you at your expense.
Receipt by Four Acres Limited or by any of our agents or representatives of any goods returned other than in accordance with the above two paragraphs shall not constitute nor be deemed to constitute Four Acres Limitedís acceptance of the return of the goods for credit or any other purpose.
This Site may contain links to other sites on the Internet that are owned and operated by third parties. You acknowledge that Four Acres Limited is not responsible for the operation of or the content on any such site.
It is natural for those new to electronic purchasing to be concerned about security of personal and credit card details. In reality, a commerce transaction on the Internet is significantly more secure than a similar telephone transaction or handing your credit card over the counter in a store.
To ensure that your credit card or other personal details are kept secure in transit on the Internet, we use a 128-bit digital certificate to encrypt the data going to and from the web Site. Look for the secure page entry messages that you get notified from your browser and for the web address to change to ďhttpsĒ (secure web page transfers).
In addition, the Four Acres Limited web Site is hosted behind a commercial firewall to prevent hackers from obtaining access to your data. Even if this unlikely event does occur, we do not keep a record of your full credit card number. Only authorised personnel from the Four Acres Limited Site administration and our hosting provider are allowed either physical or electronic access to the web server or databases.
If you have any queries regarding shopping with Four Acres Limited, please email, fax or call us - details on the Contact Us page.
