Acquisition of supplies generally
Unless otherwise stipulated by us, any registration or proposed registration through the site and any acquisition or proposed acquisition of supplies listed on or made available through the site is subject to the following conditions:
- Restriction to approved NFP’s – You may not seek the supply of any donated or discounted supplies or any validation token from this site unless you do so in your capacity as an officer or employee of an approved not for profit organisation (“NFP”). It is not permissible for contractors or agents of an NFP to seek approval or represent an NFP with respect to any interactions with us. The contact details submitted in relation to any communication with us must be the contact details of an authorised officer or employee of the NFP. In order to become an approved NFP, you must provide information in accordance with our requirements. You warrant that all information submitted by you in connection with our NFP approval process is complete and accurate.
- Restriction to Aust and NZ – Unless otherwise specified on the site, supplies may only be acquired by NFP’s located in Australia or New Zealand for use in those regions.
- Administration fees – As part of your acquisition of any supplies, you must pay the applicable administration fee to us.
- Payment processing and credit card fees – We may add any third party payment processing or credit card processing fees to the amount payable by you for any supplies.
- Shipping costs – You will be responsible to meet all costs of shipping supplies to you.
- Fulfillment – Supplies will be shipped directly to you by the relevant supplier. We will endeavor to communicate orders placed using the site to suppliers without delay. However, we will not be liable for any non-delivery or delay in delivery caused by suppliers, postal and courier companies or any other circumstances. If a supplier is no longer able to provide supplies you have ordered, we will offer you the option of acquiring alternative supplies or providing you with a refund.
- Returns – We do not accept return of supplies. Your rights with respect to defective supplies will depend on the policies of the relevant supplier.
- Warranty issues – Any warranty issues will depend on the warranties offered by the supplier. Subject to supplier’s warranties and any non-excludable rights, all warranties relating to supplies are hereby excluded and the provisions of the clause below (Liability arising from use of the site) apply.
- Currency - All transactions are in Australian Dollars. If any amounts are shown in other currencies these are only indicative and may vary due to exchange rate variations at the actual time of a transaction.
- We may utilise the services of third parties with respect to the processing of payments. Where applicable, you must comply with all relevant requirements of these third parties. We will not be responsible for any delays or deficiencies in the performance of such third parties.
- Credit Card Use – If credit card payment is facilitated by the site, we undertake to use credit card details only as specified by you in relation to purchases made on the site. Illegal use of credit cards is a serious crime. We will report any suspicious activity and disclose all relevant evidence to credit card companies and law enforcement authorities.
- Errors in description or pricing – Errors may occur in the description or pricing of supplies. We may cancel any transaction if any such error occurs, notwithstanding any confirmation of an order or acceptance of payment.

Without limiting any other limitations and restrictions, you must only use supplies in accordance with any instructions provided with those supplies.

You must indemnify each of us and keep each of us indemnified against all claims, liabilities, expenses (including legal fees on a solicitor-client basis) or losses that may be made against or sustained by any of us arising from your breach of these conditions or otherwise howsoever from or in connection with your use of the site and supplies.
