WEBSITE Terms and Conditions of Sale
Please read these conditions carefully, as they apply to all transactions between us and can only be waived or varied in writing signed by us. By proceeding with a purchase on our Website, you’re indicating to us that you’ve read, understood and agreed to these conditions. If you have any questions or concerns about our conditions or Website, or any purchase you make through the Website, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
While we take every care to make sure our online store is accurate and up to date, from time to time, mistakes may occur (for example, a pricing error or stock availability issue).
Please note that when you submit an order through the Website, no agreement is formed until we process and accept your order and send you a confirmation. If there’s been an error leading to your order (such as a pricing or stock error), we may choose not to fill the order, but we’ll be sure to contact you to discuss your options (for example, placing an order at the correct price, delaying your order or exchanging your item for another). If we can’t or won’t fill your order, we’ll process a full refund as soon as practicable.
You agree to pay us the purchase price listed on the Website (subject of course to the proviso above, in the case of accidental errors and omissions). We may vary our prices from time to time. You agree and acknowledge that we may do so at any time on notice, and that such notice is given by us posting the updated price on our Website.
You acknowledge and agree that your payment in full in cleared funds (including any postage fees, discussed below) is a condition of this agreement, any breach of which will entitle us to terminate this agreement immediately. If a request for payment is returned or denied by your financial institution or is unpaid by you for any other reason, then you’ll be liable for any associated costs incurred by us, including banking fees and charges. We may also immediately stop delivery of any goods unpaid for unless and until we receive your payment in full.
If you fail to pay us for an order, or if an insolvency event (for example, if you commit an act of bankruptcy or become insolvent) occurs in relation to you, we may suspend delivery of an order, require payment in a particular form or terminate this agreement.
We currently accept payments by credit card and direct bank transfer.
3. Events beyond control
As in life, sometimes circumstances beyond our control (strikes, floods, fires and extreme weather events, computer malfunctions, failure of service providers to perform services or injury or illness of key personnel) get in the way. If circumstances we can’t control affect our ability to dispatch your order, you release us from any obligation to dispatch your order while those circumstances continue. While they continue, we may choose to cancel your order, or otherwise to complete your order once things have returned to normal. If we expect a major delay, we’ll contact you to discuss a suitable solution.
4. Advice and information
We may give you advice, recommendations, information or assistance in relation to products on our Website, their use or application. We give that information to you in good faith, believing it’s accurate, appropriate and reliable at the time but we don’t give any warranty of accuracy, appropriateness or reliability. Information and advice we give is general in nature and is not intended to constitute or substitute for professional or medical advice. You should seek appropriate professional or medical advice if necessary. We won’t accept any liability or responsibility (including liability for negligence) for any loss suffered because of your or any other person’s reliance on information or advice we provide on our Website, unless otherwise required by law.
5. Australian Consumer Law
Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law, which forms Schedule 2 to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (ACL). If you are an Australian consumer for the purposes of the ACL, you are entitled to replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
Nothing in these terms excludes any right, guarantee or warranty you’re entitled to by law, however we do exclude all other guarantees, conditions and warranties to the maximum extent permitted by law. We also specifically exclude liability for negligence.
Wherever possible, our liability for breach of any condition, warranty or guarantee is limited, at our option, to:
• replacement of the product;
• repair of the product;
• payment of the cost of having the product repaired; or
• such other fair and reasonable remedy as we are ready and willing to provide.
We won’t be liable for any consequential loss or damage or other direct or indirect loss or damage, except where we are unable to limit or exclude such loss under the ACL.
If for any reason the ACL doesn’t apply to an order you place with us (for example, if you purchase the product for re-sale with our authorisation or if you are purchasing from outside Australia), then we exclude all liability to you and we’ll only refund an order placed if we can’t fill it, if we think it’s reasonable to do so, or otherwise as agreed in writing. Please choose carefully as we do not offer refunds for change of mind.
To make an ACL-related claim, please contact us at email@example.com.
6. Refund Procedure
Meditation and mindfulness are personal practices where the participant explores with kindness and curiosity their inner and outer experience. Teaching services, workshops, events and presentations are to support participants to open and explore their own path. We are confident that you will find the services, offerings and meditations supportive, empowering and beneficial to your self-exploration.
If you decide the pre-booked services are not for you, or you are not happy with the services provided, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to arrange a suitable remedy. Please review the applicable Refund terms.
Please note that you are required to inform us of any fault with the services in the period from delivery until the fault or problem would reasonably be expected to appear. Based on the nature of our products, we estimate this period to be approximately 48 hours.
Meditation and Mindfulness Classes/Sessions/Course – If you have pre-booked classes/sessions/course and you decide meditation and mindfulness is not for you prior to your first class/session a full refund applies. No refund applies once sessions are attended.
Workshops, Presentations – A full refund applies if you cancel with more than 14 days’ notice. 50% refund applies if you cancel with 8 to 14 days’ notice. No refund applies if you cancel with 7 days or less notice. If Covid forces cancellation a full refund applies.
Special Events – Refund details will be stated at the time of the event booking/invoice or via email correspondence.
Special Circumstances – If you are unable to complete a pre-paid service offering due to significant life disruption, please email Alite Mind (Natalie Michels at email@example.com) at your earliest available opportunity and we will be happy to consider a credit towards a future offering.
