9. Faulty products and warranty
If you return a product because it is faulty or not as expected, we are under legal duty to provide you a product that is of satisfactory quality and as expected. Our products come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the products repaired or replaced if the products fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
In addition to your legal rights, Alice’s Garden is proud to offer a 1 year manufacturer warranty on all of its products except umbrellas and gazebos fabric which are under 6 month warranty, from the date of purchase as per disclosed on invoice. If you notice that your product is faulty, just contact us and we will sort this for you. You will have to send us a picture and explain us in details the issue to ensure we fully understand what’s wrong and set up the right solution. Depending on the situation, we will send you spare parts, or exchange your faulty product with a new one.
Our warranties only cover domestic use; items for use in commercial properties will not be covered. Works undertaken during the warranty period are not necessarily free of charge. If the problem is due to misuse (including commercial use instead of domestic use) rather than a manufacturing fault, the guarantee won’t apply. Damages due to weather conditions are not covered by the manufacturer warranty. Please refer to the product instructions manual if you require more information about the products and the way it should be used. If you have customised or amended your product, the product won’t be covered by the warranty.
In order to claim a warranty, you need to inform us maximum 30 days after noticing the product’s problem. In addition, you will have to provide your invoice for any claims. Once the warranty claim is validated by Alice’s Garden and that it is agreed that the appropriate solution is not to send you spare parts or exchange your faulty product with a new one, Alice’s Garden has the discretion to provide you with a refund, offer a store credit valid for 6 month or a product replacement as required under the Law if:
- The product is not of acceptable quality as defined under the Australian Consumer Law;
- The product delivered does not match the description on the website. Alice’s Garden reserves the right to not validate warranty claims related to small colour variations due to computer or mobile device screen settings; or
- The product is unsafe
If a refund, a store credit or replacement is applied as part of this warranty, Alice’s Garden may require the return of the product before refunding or replacing it, as long as this is permitted by the Law. In this instance only, Alice’s Garden will cover the return delivery costs and will manage the collection and return delivery to our warehouse with our delivery partner. In the event of a refund, we will make your refund within 14 business days of reception of the goods in our warehouse. In the event of a store credit this will be valid for 6 months post of your original purchase date. In the event of a replacement, products are subject to the same warranties as the original product for the remaining warranty period based on your purchase date.
