All goods sold in Australia 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 for 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.
Refunds and Returns:
Kong Computers do not accept change of mind returns. We do offer a 30 day return if you have not opened the products boxing or broken the factory seal. We would need to be able to continue selling the product (as brand new) after it is returned to us, in order to accept a return. The buyer is to cover the return postage cost, and we recommend using insurance and tracking as any damage or loss in transit is the buyer's responsibility. Any other third-party cost, like our original courier cost of the product to the customer, cannot be recouped by us so the refund would be the full products' cost minus the initial shipping cost that we incurred (even though we provide free shipping, our shipping cost to you is between $5.50 - $33).
A restocking fee of up to 20% can be applied to recoup any extra costs required to make the returned product ready for sale again in our store. This is decided on a case by case basis and we waive this fee if the product is returned in perfect condition and ready for resale.
We do not take responsibility for any goods damaged or lost in transit when the customer sends the product back to us for warranty or return/refund. The manufacturer’s warranty may be void if the product is damaged in transit. Please ensure the product is packed appropriately for shipping before sending it back to us. If you are unsure about packing the product for return then contact us.
With a cancelled order, we can refund the entire purchase price if cancelled before the product ships out.
We recommend that you check the system requirements to ensure the purchased products are compatible with your system (and this includes software is compatible too).
However, you can choose a refund or exchange if an item has a major problem. (See points in next paragraph)
This is when the item:
- Has a problem that would have stopped someone from buying the item if they had known about it
- Is unsafe
- Is significantly different from the picture or product description
- Doesn’t do what we said it would, or what you asked for and can’t easily be fixed
You must provide proof of purchase when returning any products'. The product serial number of your returned purchase must match the serial number on our sytem when you purchased from us.
This information doesn’t limit the scope of your rights or our obligations under the Australian Consumer Law.
