10.1 Above and beyond the minimum requirements of Australian law, We pride ourselves on good service. As such, if you are a consumer, you may cancel your order at any time, for any reason within 7 calendar days, beginning on the day you received the Products. You must notify us via durable medium (email / letter) and quote your order number in any communication. Notification by phone is not sufficient.
10.2 If you are contracting as a Business / Trade customer, this clause does not apply. Any orders by or on behalf of a business cannot be cancelled once they have been placed. An order will be deemed to be a Business Order, if it is paid via business bank account or business debit / credit card, or a company address or purchase order number has been provided.
10.3 You must also return the Product(s) to us immediately, in the same condition in which you received them, and at your own cost and risk. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
10.4 If required we can arrange collection using our courier, who can collect from most areas of Australia. Please contact us to agree on the cost for collection depending on where the collection is from.
10.5 The supply of services (namely a Fast-track/priority build service – if ordered) will not be refunded because this service contract will have been fully completed within the cancellation period.
10.6 Once the cancelled Products are received by us, we will refund your debit or credit card or issue a cheque or bank transfer for the full amount paid within 14 days including the costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us) less the collection charge we paid for the collection of the Goods if applicable.
10.7 Except in the case of faulty or miss-described goods, if you do not return the goods as required, we may charge you a sum not exceeding the direct costs of recovering the goods. All original items delivered must be returned with the refund request. This includes but is not limited to welcome packs, software discs, cables, digital download codes such as games, chassis accessories and peripherals.
10.8 Any software or consumable goods that have been unsealed or activated do not have the right of cancellation and will not be refunded.
10.9 If the goods supplied to you are physically damaged then you should notify us via email, letter or webmail by logging into your account area within 72 hours of receipt. Failure to notify us with 72 hours of receipt will result in the determination that any physical damage occurred whilst in your care.
10.10 If you suspect that the Goods are faulty and wish to return them you must contact us within 72 hours of discovering the fault and submit an RMA (Return Material Authorisation) request. We will examine the returned Product and if you are entitled, we will notify you of your options (which may be to either repair, replace or refund) via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will process a repair, replacement or refund as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you confirm whether you opt for repair or replacement, or within 14 days of the day you opt for a refund for the defective Product.
10.11 For refunds, we will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than:
- 14 days after the day we receive back from you any goods supplied, or
- (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the goods, or
- if there were no goods supplied, 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this contract.
10.12 For any returns due to damage or suspected faults, we will arrange for collection at our cost within the first month after receipt or as extended by your warranty provision. Should the product be found not defective then you will be liable for the costs of collection, re-delivery, labour and new packaging if required. We only collect from Australian states and territories.
10.13 Where collections are arranged by us, you still have a duty of care to ensure the Products are packaged sufficiently, for the type and value of goods being returned. Due to the nature of the goods supplied, we recommend original packaging is used. If original packaging is not available, new speciality packaging can be ordered from us. Where you use your own packaging, liability for the cost of repairing damage resulting from inadequate packaging rests with you. We will only confirm that the item has arrived back to us in a satisfactory condition once we have opened and inspected the item.
10.14 When you return goods using your own delivery method, where goods are found to be defective we will refund up to $20 of the cost incurred by you. This will only be refunded upon the receipt of proof of the carriage costs.
10.15 When returning goods under the 14 day cooling off period, if the goods are not in a re-saleable condition or if the goods have been unnecessarily handled we reserve the right to offer only a partial refund.
10.16 In order to obtain a refund, exchange or to repair a product purchased from Dream PC, including those products which carry a manufacturer’s warranty, you must have clear proof of purchase; typically, a receipt or invoice.
10.17 To return your product (including warranty returns for faulty products, or where you have been sent the wrong item), please go to the ‘Contact Us’ page and let us know the fault(s) found by e-mail, phone or online chat. We will review your request, and at our option, issue you a Return Authorisation number. If we issue you a Return Authorisation number, please clearly print it on the outside of the package when returning your product to us. You acknowledge that by issuing you with a Return Authorisation number, we are not representing that your warranty claim is valid or that you will be entitled to have your product repaired or replaced, or a refund provided in relation to that product.
10.18 In relation to returning faulty products, warranty periods are strictly enforced by manufacturers (and in relation to Dream PC Custom PC). It is therefore important that you immediately apply for a Return Authorisation number as soon as you become aware of the need to do so. When we receive your product, we will assess whether the product has a fault and can be accepted as a warranty claim. We may be required to consult with the manufacturer or their repair agent to determine the fault and resolution. If we have to send your product to the manufacturer or their repair agent, we will ask them to assess the product and provide their assessment within a reasonable time-frame. Where the assessment finds that there is no fault with the product, or that the product has been damaged due to use of the product by you for a purpose for which it is not intended, outside its recommended parameters or specifications, or circumstances otherwise beyond our control, we may require, at our option, that you compensate us for any fees incurred by us in relation to the assessment. Once your product assessment is completed, we will inform you whether your warranty claim is accepted, and subject to your select individual warranty option terms, whether we will repair, replace or refund your product.
10.19 Unfortunately, advanced replacements (shipping replacements before the faulty component has been received and tested) is not available.
10.20 Once the computer leaves our premises on its way to you, change of mind type of returns where you no longer wish to buy the computer, attracts a 10-15% restock fee. This is to cover our labour costs involved in building the computer as well as loss of value of opened goods.
10.21 Some items cannot be refunded such as digital software licenses. For example, once you have activated Microsoft Windows or Anti-virus software, it is tied to your email address or account. Therefore we are unable to return the license to stock. Any refund due will be minus the value of the bought software product.
