Terms & Conditions


Welcome to www.deadbeatmag.com (the “Site”). Thank you for visiting the Site.  While we hope you enjoy the Site, it is important that you carefully read the following Terms and conditions of Use (“Terms”) before using the Site, because if you visit or shop at the Site, you accept these conditions. If you do not agree to be bound by all of these Terms, do not use the Site.

(a) Ordering Merchandise, and Physical Goods
You need a valid credit card with full authority to use it, to submit an order for merchandise or other products or services through the Site. You hereby represent and warrant that you will not use any credit card or other form of payment unless you have all necessary legal authorisation to do so.  You understand that we will not be liable in the event that others acting with or without your permission use your credit card to make purchases on the Site.

(b) Prices
All prices listed on the Site are subject to change.  In the event a product or service is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical error or error in pricing or product information received from our suppliers, we shall have the right, prior to the acceptance of your order to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged.  If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and we cancel your order, we shall issue a refund to your credit card account in the amount of the charge. 

(c) Colours
Please note that the colours of items and products may depend on your monitor and may not be correctly displayed. We have made every effort to ensure product photographs, description and details listed on the site are accurate. However, slight differences in colour and texture may occur. Please note all measurements are approximate.

(d) Availability
Please keep in mind that while we might offer a variety of merchandise and other products and services for sale on the Site, we cannot guarantee availability at a particular time; and certain merchandise might not be available on the Site.  We reserve the right to change our merchandise and other products and service offerings at any time. 

(e) Order Acceptance Policy
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell.  We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason.  We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any item. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that, if we cancel all or a portion of your order or if we provide you less than the quantity you ordered, your sole and exclusive remedy is either that (a) we will issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount charged for the cancelled portion or the quantity not provided (if your credit card has already been charged for the order) or (b) we will place your order on back order or (c) you can select another item off the site of equal or lesser value as a substitute.

(f) Payment Terms
For each product or service that you order on the Site, you agree to pay the price applicable for the product (including any sales taxes, surcharges and any delivery fees for the delivery service you select) as of the time you submitted the order.  DEADBEAT will automatically bill your credit card or other form of payment submitted as part of the order process for such price.

(g) Sales Taxes
Sales taxes, or other taxes, duties, customs, import/export charges, or similar governmental charges are not included in the price of the products.  We shall automatically charge and withhold the applicable sales tax for orders to be delivered to addresses within Australia in accordance with our order policy in effect at the time of purchase.  Each customer shall be solely responsible for all sales taxes, or other taxes, duties, customs, import/export charges, or similar governmental charges, on orders shipped outside of Australia.

(h) Return Policy
All sales from the Site are final. No refunds or exchanges are available for change of mind. We cannot refund or exchange used or customer damaged items.

2. Promotions

The Site may contain or offer promotions, which may be governed by a separate set of rules that describe the promotion and may have eligibility requirements, such as certain age or geographic area restrictions.  It is your responsibility to read those rules to determine whether or not your participation, registration or entry will be valid and to determine the sponsor’s requirements of you in connection with the applicable sweepstakes or promotion.
