In Australia, statutory consumer protection laws, including the Competition and Consumer Act 2000, provide the Consumer with rights which cannot be excluded. These are referred to as Non-Excludable Rights. To the extent permitted by law, the liability of the DMMPL for a breach of Excludable or Non-Excludable Rights is limited, at the sole discretion of DMMPL, to repair, replacement or refund equal to the cost of having the goods and or services supplied again. To the extent permitted by law, all prices and quotations provided are subject to change without advance notice and all products are either stocked or available at time of posting. No waiver, no alteration or modification of these terms shall be binding upon DMMPL unless pre-approved in writing, in either printed or digital format, by an authorised representative of DMMPL.
If by reason of fact, circumstance, matter or occurrence beyond reasonable control DMMPL is unable to perform in whole or in part any of its obligations, DMMPL shall be released of that obligation and shall not be liable to the Consumer whatsoever. For as long as the stated force majeure event is sustained, DMMPL will seek to keep the Consumer informed about the status of the said force majeure event and any specific actions that are or may be taken to overcome the force majeure event and to provide notification to the Consumer once the force majeure event has ceased.
If a product fails to meet a level of reasonably expected quality, fails to perform in a fit for purpose manner or is significantly different from the product promoted or displayed the Consumer has the right to ask for a replacement or refund. Consumer right of return guarantee does not apply if you receive goods as requested and subsequently change your mind, no longer require the goods, realise that you ordered the supplied goods in error, have found a cheaper item elsewhere or have simply decided you no longer have a use for it.
Unless otherwise stated by Law, acceptance of returned goods and or acknowledgment of product shortages is solely at the discretion of DMMPL. DMMPL will not recognise such instances unless advised by the Consumer, in writing, in either printed or digital format, within seven (7) days of taking delivery. Unless otherwise advised by DMMPL, the Consumer is solely responsible for charges that may be incurred when returning goods for refund or credit together with any restocking fees that may apply. In order to accept a return or exchange, goods must be in their original unused condition.
When making a claim for credit, a successful claim is not automatic for hazardous materials that include paint, aerosols, lubricants or shelf life products such as rubber goods, belts, hoses, seals, gaskets or special tools or superseded, discontinued or obsolete parts or goods clearly identified prior to purchase as non returnable, non refundable or as being part of a special or customised request order.
Rights of title and interest in all goods pertaining to a request for supply shall remain with DMMPL until payment for supply is received in full. Where an application for Credit with DMMPL is approved, credit accounts are required to be settled strictly in full within thirty (30) days from the end of the month in which goods and or services are purchased. The minimum sales order for credit under these terms is fifty dollars ($50) and any discount given is subject to the account being kept in order within the requirements of the application for Credit. Where no application for Credit has been approved by DMMPL, it is required that the purchase price of all goods and services be paid in full less the proceeds of any deposit and or trade-in prior to an agreed date, manufacturer delivery or Consumer collection. No waiver, no alteration or modification of these terms shall be binding upon DMMPL unless pre-approved in writing, in either printed or digital format, by an authorised representative of DMMPL.

Should the Consumer default in the payment of monies due, DMMPL shall be entitled to charge interest on all amounts not paid by the due date. Any expenses in relation to bank payments reversals or any costs or disbursements incurred by DMMPL in recovery of any outstanding monies, including debt collection agency and solicitor fees, shall be borne by or subsequently recharged to the Consumer. Where a Consumer has used supplied goods to create another product, the rights of title and interest in such products shall immediately pass to DMMPL until the Consumer has made payment in full for the goods and services provided by DMMPL during fulfilment of a contractual request for supply. DMMPL reserves the right to terminate any credit arrangement or to withhold the supply of any goods and or services for any reason as may be determined discretionarily appropriate.
Where a Consumer fails to collect their goods from DMMPL or fails to provide a pre-paid shipping address within 7 days of date of purchase the Consumer grants free licence to DMMPL to subsequently cancel a request for supply. Any claims for refund will then be subject to the conditions of returns and a claim for credit or product shortage.

DMMPL is not liable for any error made by the Consumer in selecting or requesting said part number or item code or for any error in any publication including pricing, product specifications or the illustrative or generic representation of the saleable product.
In an instance where advertised availability and prices are incorrect due to human and or digital processing error we are not obliged to sell the product. In such an instance we reserve our right not to accept payment for goods or services that we do not intend to supply or are unable to supply and would endeavour to immediately withdraw any such product from sale until advertised availability and pricing have been updated as current and correct.
