Privacy Policy

 

Last reviewed: November 2020

Buying2u provides intermediation services for purchases made abroad, executing the work of selecting interesting products. Customers can purchase products and vouchers from sellers and not from Buying2u. In this transaction, Buying2u simply acts as a limited agent for the Seller and the User, for the following purposes only:

  • Facilitating the purchase of a Product or Voucher by a User.
  • Collecting payment from the user and then remitting the payment to the Seller (less any fees charged to the Seller by Buying2u).
  • Providing the Support Services (as described below) in respect of issues arising between a User and a Seller, in relation to the supply of Products and Vouchers.
  • Buying at Buying2u you are buying directly from suppliers in the United States, Australia, Asia and/or Europe. In case of doubt about the privacy policy, please contact us. We guarantee the security of your purchase and respect your privacy.

Buying2u is not a party to the Seller Terms, and its only obligations in relation to that agreement are as set out in this Agreement. Buying2u is not responsible for the user’s or Seller’s performance of their obligations under the Seller Terms. Buying2u may, however, exercise any of the Seller’s rights arising under the Seller Terms for the benefit of Buying2u and/or the relevant Seller.

You agree to release and forever discharge Buying2u from any and all claims, actions, demands or proceedings, which you may make, institute or claim, in relation to:

  • the performance of the Seller Terms, or failure to perform any obligation under the Seller Terms, by the Seller.
  • By purchasing a Product or Voucher via the Site, you agree that you are bound by the terms of the Seller Terms.

LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES

The Site may contain links to third party websites (including, without limitation, websites of Sellers). Buying2u does not endorse nor support the contents of third-party websites. Buying2u recommends Users to review the terms & conditions and privacy policy of the third party websites Users visit.

PRODUCTS

Information about the Products and Vouchers on the Site are based on material distributed by suppliers, product manufacturers and/or the Sellers. You agree that except as required by law, Buying2u cannot be held responsible for inaccuracies or errors caused by incorrect information supplied to Buying2u or a change in Product or Voucher specifications without notice to Buying2u. The foregoing in no way limits any rights you may have under the Australian Consumer Law.

USERS AGREE:

To make their own enquiries to assess the information provided and suitability of the Products and Vouchers before an order is placed; and that product images on the Site are for illustration purposes only and the actual Products may vary.
All Products offered on the Site are supplied subject to this Agreement and the relevant Seller Terms. To the extent there is any inconsistency between this Agreement and each of the Seller Terms, the agreements will be read in the following order of priority (i) this Agreement; and (ii) the Seller Terms. You agree that by purchasing a Product, that you will be bound by the Seller Terms for that product, as described in this clause.

BUYING2U RESERVES THE RIGHT TO:

Suspend or remove any product offer or other information from the Site at any time; and
advise Users that Products for which an order was made have become unavailable.

ORDERING AND DELIVERY

By ordering Products or Vouchers via the Site, you, the user, agree to purchase the Products and/or Vouchers you have selected:

For the purchase price and all other applicable fees and charges as displayed on the Site or as notified to you by a Seller in accordance with clause; and in accordance with this Agreement and the Seller Terms.

You may place an order via the purchase functionality contained in the Site and may pay for your Products and Vouchers (as ordered) via the payment processing functionality offered by the Site, and using the methods of payment designated by the Site from time to time (which may include, without limitation, credit card, debit card or PayPal).

When an order is placed for products or vouchers, we will send the order to the seller for confirmation, at which time they may accept or reject your order. Where a seller rejects your order, we will refund you the purchase price for the order and associated delivery charges. Where a Seller accepts your order, you will receive confirmation that your order has been accepted by the Seller via e-mail.

Note: When a Product or Voucher is purchased via the Site, the User and the Seller will at that time form a legally binding agreement between each other on the terms of sale of the relevant Seller from whom you, as a User, purchased the Product/Voucher ( “Seller Terms”). In circumstances where you purchase Products or Vouchers from more than one Seller, you will form a legally binding agreement with each Seller in relation to the relevant Product or Voucher. Each such agreement is mutually exclusive. These agreements will be formed when you confirm your purchase of the relevant Products or Vouchers in your shopping cart.

The price of Products and Vouchers on the Site are as set by the individual Sellers and not Buying2u. Prices may change at any time, with or without notice. Except as provided in clause 11, all prices include GST but do not include delivery costs which, if applicable, will be additional.

Your order will not be processed until payment is received by Buying2u in full for the Products and/or Vouchers you have ordered (including the purchase price, delivery fees, and any other applicable fees and charges). Once received, you agree that the payment will then become the property of Buying2u. We will then remit an amount equal to the payment to the relevant Seller (or Sellers), less any applicable fees and charges of Buying2u, as charged to the Sellers.

Once you have placed an order for Products and/or Vouchers, you cannot cancel or change your order, unless: (i) Buying2u is required by law, or by agreements with its payment providers (such as PayPal) to permit such cancellation or change; or (ii) a provision of this Agreement expressly permits such cancellation or change; or (iii) the Seller Terms permits such cancellation or change. You agree, however, that the Seller may cancel your order at any time, for any reason whatsoever prior to delivery of the relevant Products or Vouchers to you. Where this occurs, Buying2u will procure that the purchase price for the relevant Products or Vouchers (as purchased by you), and any delivery charges you have paid, will (subject to clause 9.7) be refunded to you in full.

Apart from where required by law, or by agreements between Buying2u, Sellers and Buying2u’s payment providers (such as PayPal), in circumstances where you place an order with a single Seller for one or more Products or Vouchers, and only some of those Products or Vouchers are supplied (but others are either not supplied or cancelled by the Seller), then the delivery charges will not be refundable. To the maximum extent permitted by law, Buying2u will not be liable to Users for any other loss, such as any additional costs associated with the user purchasing any Products/Vouchers that are not supplied, from another retailer at a higher price.

The Seller, and not Buying2u, is responsible for the delivery and supply of the products and Vouchers to you and the Sellers will set their own delivery time frames which will appear in the Seller Terms on the sales listing. If no delivery time frame is stated in the Seller Terms or sales listing, then you may contact the Seller to obtain an estimated delivery date. Any delivery dates specified on the Site are estimated dates only. You acknowledge that these delivery dates may vary and delays in delivery may be unavoidable.

CHANGE OF MIND RETURNS

Sellers have their own policies and procedures in relation to change of mind returns. You must review your order carefully before placing it because change of mind returns are given at the sole discretion of each Seller and a Seller may refuse to refund or exchange Products/Vouchers for change of mind or errors a User made in their order.

If a Seller allows a return, then the user will need to follow the returns process outlined in the Seller Terms, or any other return procedures or processes described by the Seller from time to time.

DEFECTIVE GOODS

All Products/Vouchers sold on the Site come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law.

Products/Vouchers that you purchase from the Site may also contain warranty documents on or inside the packaging. Any such warranty is provided by the Seller or manufacturer of the Product/Voucher and is not given by Buying2u. Any warranty given by a Seller or Manufacturer in relation to a Product/Voucher will apply in addition to other rights and remedies you have under the Australian Consumer Law. Some warranty documents provided by Sellers/manufacturers of imported goods may not apply in Australia. You should contact the Seller/manufacturer identified on the warranty document to determine whether or not the warranty applies to the goods in Australia and, if so, how you should go about making a claim under such a warranty.

INDEMNIFICATION

Users agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Buying2u, its related bodies corporate and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents from and against all loss, cost, expense, damage, claims, demands, suits, actions or proceedings (including legal costs and expenses) arising out of:

the wrongful use of the Site by the user (or caused or authorised by the user);
breach of this Agreement by the user; o
breach of the Seller Terms for a Product or Voucher.

IMPLIED TERMS AND DISCLAIMER

The maximum liability of Buying2u to you for any and all breaches of this Agreement, or for any and all negligence in relation to this Agreement, will be no greater than the purchase price and delivery charges paid by you to Buying2u (which is received on behalf of the Seller) for the relevant Products or Vouchers which you purchase through the Site.

If the Australian Consumer Law (or analogous legislation) applies to this Agreement and permits the limitation of liability for breach of warranty implied by legislation, the liability of Buying2u is limited, at the option of Buying2u, to:

(a) in the case of goods, any one or more of the following:

(i) the replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods;

(ii) the repair of the goods;

(iii) the payment of the cost of replacing the goods or of acquiring equivalent goods; or

(iv) the payment of the cost of having the goods repaired; and

(b) in the case of services:

(i) the supplying of the services again; or

(ii) the payment of the cost of having the services supplied again.

IMPLIED OBLIGATIONS WHICH CANNOT BE EXCLUDED

Any term of this Agreement which limits or excludes any term, condition or warranty, express or implied, or the liability of Buying2u will apply to the extent permitted by law and will not be construed as excluding, qualifying or limiting the user’s statutory rights or remedies arising by virtue of the breach of any implied term of this Agreement where such exclusion, qualification or limitation would be prohibited by legislation.

Notwithstanding clauses 16 and this clause 17, for Australian consumers, the Seller’s Products and Vouchers, and goods and services provided by Buying2u hereunder, come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. If you are an Australian consumer, you may be entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage.
