24.4 If you do not collect the products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 27 will apply.
24.5 A product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address specified in the order or as supplied by you as the delivery address.
24.6 You own a product which is goods once we have received payment in full.
25. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
25.1 You can always end your contract with us before dispatch of the products. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
(a) If what you have bought is incorrectly described you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 28.;
(b) If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 25.2;
(c) If you have changed your mind about the product, see clause 25.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods;
(d) In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 25.6.
25.2 If you are ending a contract for a reason described below (clause 25.2(a) to 25.2(e)), the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided. The reasons are:
(a) we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 23.2);
(b) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
(c) there is a risk that the supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
(d) we have suspended one or more deliveries of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 7 days; or
(e) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
25.3 For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund.
25.4 You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them, and you do not have a right to change your mind for orders having a value of less than $50 Australian Dollars (AUD).
25.5 Where you have a right to change your mind, you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case, you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.
25.6 Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a legal right to change your mind (see clause 25.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods is considered completed when the product is delivered and paid for. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.
26. HOW TO END THE CONTRACT WITH US (INCLUDING IF YOU HAVE CHANGED YOUR MIND)
26.1 To end the contract with us, please contact us through our site.
26.2 Returning products after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must either return the goods in person to where you bought them, post them back to us. If you are exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
26.2 We will pay the costs of return:
(a) if you are ending the contract because the products are incorrectly described;
(b) if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong; or
(d) In all other circumstances you must pay the costs of return.
26.3 We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
26.4 If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
(a) We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
(b) The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
26.5 We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then:
(a) If the products are goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us.
(b) In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind
27. OUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
27.1 We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:

(b) you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the products;
(c) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or collect them from us; or
(d) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us access to your premises to supply the services.
27.2 You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 27.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
28. IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE PRODUCT
28.1 If you have any questions or complaints about the product, please contact us through our site.
28.2 Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the product. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
28.3 This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit https://www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au or https://www.accc.gov.au.

29. PRICE AND PAYMENT
29.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes GST ) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 29.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
29.2 If the rate of GST changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of GST that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of GST takes effect.
29.3 It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
29.4 We accept payment with any credit or debit card. When you must pay depends on what product you are buying. Given that Hoppa products are classified as goods, you must pay for them before we dispatch them. We will charge your credit or debit card immediately after you place the order.
29.5 If you think an invoice is incorrect please contact us promptly through our site to let us know.
