5. Acceptance Policy
Your receipt of an Order confirmation, in electronic or any other form, does not signify our acceptance of your Order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell Goods to you. A contract will not be formed between Hussmann and you for the purchase of goods until you receive a shipment confirmation email from us. Hussmann reserves the right to, by written notice to you at any time after receipt of your Order but before shipping confirmation is provided, decline your Order for any reason or supply less than the quantity of Goods ordered.
Hussmann is a supplier of refrigerated merchandisers, refrigeration systems, heat transfer and associated products and may accept Orders from resellers, dealers, exporters, wholesalers, or other customers who intend to resell the products offered by Hussmann.
6. Pricing & Payment
Prices of Goods and services on the website (“Prices”) are subject to change without notice to you. You agree to pay Hussmann the Prices as quoted at the time of Order, which will be charged to your nominated method of payment (where valid and accepted).
Prices quoted are in Australian Dollars. You acknowledge and agree that all credit cards will be charged in Australian Dollars and the prices confirmed at the time of Order are inclusive of GST and applicable taxes, fees, and charges unless otherwise notified to you prior to purchase.
In the event that a product is listed on our website at an incorrect Price or with incorrect information due to typographical error or error in pricing or product information, Hussmann shall have the right to refuse or cancel any Orders placed for such products (including if such Orders have been confirmed or payment of the Price has been processed).
If your payment has already been processed and your Order is cancelled, Hussmann will issue a credit to your account in the amount of the Order.
7. Order Cancellations
If you notify us before Goods have been dispatched, Hussmann may, but is not obligated to, accommodate Order cancellations. If items have been shipped, Hussmann reserves the right to refuse Order cancellations or charge a reasonable cancellation fee should we be able to request the return of the package from our delivery service. Apart from the foregoing, an Order cannot be cancelled once placed by you.
8. Change of address
The shipping address for your Order is shown in the checkout and on your Order confirmation and shipping confirmation emails. In the event that an incorrect address was entered, address changes can only be made before the Order is shipped. Hussmann cannot accommodate all address change requests.

C. Delivery & Returns
At this time, Hussmann only delivers within Australia and New Zealand. Enquiries for deliveries can be made outside those regions and will be tasked to the appropriate Hussmann business.
The delivery times provided by Hussmann are estimates only. You are not relieved of any obligation to accept delivery of or pay for Goods because of a delay in delivery. Hussmann will make all reasonable efforts to deliver the Goods to you at the time and on the date agreed as the delivery date, however, time is not of the essence under these Terms and, except where Hussmann has an obligation under the Australian Consumer Law, Hussmann is not liable for any failure to deliver or delay in delivery for any reason including, without limitation, where an event beyond our reasonable control occurs (such as a result of any strike, trade dispute, fire, tempest, theft, breakdown, epidemic, pandemic, government directive, court order, or similar). You agree that Hussmann is not liable to you for any cost, expense, loss or damage arising out of such a delay in delivery or a failure in delivery.
If the option for customer pick-up is available for Goods you wish to order, pick-up can be arranged from our nominated warehouse locations at no additional cost to you. Hussmann is not liable to you for any failure to collect the Goods or delay in collection when you elect to pick up Goods from our warehouse locations yourself. If you fail to collect the Goods within a notified collection period, Hussmann may (at our election) ship those Goods to your nominated contact address at your cost, or refund payment received in respect of the Goods, in which case we cannot guarantee that replacement Goods will be available.
11. Title and risk
Risk in the Goods will pass to you on delivery of the Goods unless otherwise agreed in writing.
Title in the Goods will remain with Hussmann and pass to you only on payment of the Price, as well as all other amounts owing to Hussmann by you, in full. You will hold the Goods (including where they have been converted or changed by any process) as bailee and agent for Hussmann unless and until payment in full is received.
Until title to the Goods passes to you upon payment in full of all Prices owing to Hussmann for all Goods supplied, you must:
(a) subject to paragraph (b) below, store the Goods separately and in such a manner that they are clearly identified as the property of Hussmann and ensure that the Goods are properly stored, protected, readily identifiable and insured;
(b) only sell the Goods, where onsale has been permitted by Hussmann, in the ordinary course of your business (which does not include sale for less than cost or on conditions); and
(c) hold and agree to hold the proceeds of any sale or lease of, or other dealing with, the Goods for Hussmann in a separate bank account with a bank over which the you have not given any security.
In addition to any rights Hussmann may have under the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth) (“PPSA”) or any equivalent applicable law, Hussmann is entitled at any time until title in and to the Goods passes to you to demand the return of the Goods and shall be entitled without notice to you and without liability to you to enter, or cause Hussmann’s agent to enter, any premises occupied or controlled by you (or any other premises where you are holding the Goods) in order to search for and remove the Goods. For that purpose, you irrevocably grant a license to Hussmann to enter such premises (including via an agent) and indemnify Hussmann from and against all loss, cost, damage, or claim suffered or incurred by Hussmann as a result of exercising its rights under this “Title and Risk” section.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, if there is any inconsistency between Hussmann’s rights under this “Title and Risk” section and its rights under the PPSA or any equivalent applicable law, this “Title and Risk” section prevails.
You grant to Hussmann, and acknowledge and warrant that Hussmann has and may perfect, an enforceable security interest, lien, and/or charge (which may be registered in any jurisdiction where applicable law permits or requires registration of such interests) in the Goods and any proceeds of the sale of the Goods to secure payment of all applicable Prices until title passes in accordance with this “Title and Risk” section. You acknowledge that these Terms contain and evidences the entire agreement between you and Hussmann in respect of the foregoing grant of security interest (and you will otherwise promptly notify Hussmann as to any relevant formalities which are required to be observed under applicable law for the purpose of enforcing that security interest) and agree to do anything requested by Hussmann or reasonably necessary to register, perfect and enforce Hussmann’s security interest, lien and/or charge and (to the extent permitted by applicable law) waive any rights you may have to receive notice of perfection or registration (if any).
12. Repairs, Refunds and Returns
If you have received a product which you believe is faulty, please contact our Customer Support to arrange a refund, replacement or repair at firstname.lastname@example.org. If a Warranty applies to your product. that Warranty applies in addition to your rights under the Australian Consumer Law as contemplated below and does not replace or exclude any of those rights.
Returned products must be in as new condition (except to the extent they are faulty) and sent to the return address indicated on your Order or shipping confirmation. We recommend sending returns via registered post or courier as we do not accept responsibility for lost items.
Where Goods are faulty, Hussmann may (at its sole discretion): (i) refund the Price paid for the Goods (including a partial refund); (ii) replace the Goods; (iii) have the Goods repaired; or (iv) pay the cost of having the Goods replaced or repaired (see section 16 – ‘Our Liability to You’ for more detail).
The Hussmann returns policy (as set out here or elsewhere on our website) does not seek to limit your rights and Hussmann’s rights and obligations under the non-excludable provisions of the Australian Consumer Law (contained in Schedule 2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth)).
