In addition to the above, the Australian Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (including the Australian Consumer Law) (ACL), as well as other Australian laws, guarantee certain conditions, warranties and undertakings and give consumers other legal rights. In Australia, VAF’s products come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the ACL. Nothing in these terms and conditions purports to modify or exclude the conditions, warranties, undertakings or other legal rights in the ACL and other Australian laws.

Goods manufactured by VAF and found to be defective will be repaired or replaced free of charge if delivered carriage paid to VAF within their applicable warranty period. Subject to applicable rights under the ACL, in the case of faulty goods not manufactured by VAF, the purchaser is entitled only to such benefits as the manufacturer or distributor of those goods provides to VAF or the purchaser.

Payments and Deposits:

Full payment must be made by the purchaser before goods leave the VAF premises.

Through our website, payment may be made by Visa, Bankcard, Mastercard or Amex credit cards.

If a purchaser requests VAF to perform installation, project management and/or other services, VAF will provide a written estimate or quote for this work, containing applicable hourly rates to be charged to the purchaser. Payment terms will be as specified in the estimate/quote, and will generally involve weekly invoices for work performed as a project or installation progresses. Issues that arise as a result of the building structure, or compatibility of various electronic components or systems, may necessitate variations to initial estimates/quotes.

If VAF is engaged to provide on-site installation services, you agree to ensure that the installation site is reasonably accessible, safe and free of hazards.

Late Payments:

Payments not received by their due date(s) are subject to a 1.5% per month late payment charge.
