Welcome to The Global Village web site, referred to as the "site." We advise that you read the following conditions of use prior to using this site. Any use you make of this site is expressly conditioned upon you having accepted the below the conditions of use. In using this site, you recognise your agreement to the conditions of use. If you have issue or disagree with any part of the below the conditions of use, we advise that you do not use this site.
Purpose of the Site
The purpose of this site is to offer you information about The Global Village, and about the products and services we offer. Additionally, you may be able to purchase products through the site.
Product and Service Availability
When reference is made to a product or service on the site, such a reference is not necessarily an attempt to sell or supply that product or service, nor is it an assurance that the product or service is available or that the names and descriptions of products supplied by our store will exactly match those included on the site. The Global Village online controls and administers the site from our office in Adelaide, Australia. We will not be able to fill your order if you require shipping outside of Australia.
Inventory information available on the site offers our best estimate of the likelihood that a product will be shipped immediately once you have placed your order. Despite our endeavours, we cannot offer guarantee that a product listed as "in stock" will in fact ship immediately, since occasionally inventory errors can occur. If an item that is marked "in stock" in your shopping cart when you place your order, is in fact sold out at the time your order is processed, we will send you a notification e-mail indicating that we were unable to completely fill the order and you will not be charged.
The photographers endeavour to ensure the display colours of our products are depicted accurately, however the actual colours you will see will depend on your monitor. We cannot guarantee your monitor will display a colour accurately as it was intended to be displayed.
The price and availability of products and services displayed on the site are subject to change without notice. The presence, details of or reference to, any of the products or services on our site does not necessarily mean that product or service is presently available, nor that we approve the product or service. In the case a product or service indicates at an incorrect price as result of typographical error, error in pricing information received from the supplier, or any reason, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for such a product or service with an incorrect price. We reserve this right including when the order has been confirmed or your credit card has been charged. If the order is cancelled but your credit card has already been charged for the purchase, we will issue a credit to your credit card account to the value of the incorrect price.
We reserve the right to accept or decline your order at any time, or to supply less quantity than you ordered of any product.
Low Order Fee
Please note a Low Order Fee of $10 applies to all orders below $200 in total.
You hold responsibility for the delivery of payments relating to any products that you order through your account.
Ownership of Goods
All goods remain the property of The Global Village until paid in full.
The freight cost displayed in the checkout is an estimate, the actual freight cost may vary, so we will adjust your invoice according to our actual freight cost after we have dispatched your order. We will charge you the difference if the freight is more than estimated, or reduce your order total if the freight is less than estimated.
Purchase Order Account
Orders placed by Purchase Order are non-cancellable. Purchases are honoured as long as your company is currently in good standing. All purchase order sales are subject to the terms and conditions which your company agreed to in the application for a Purchase Order Account. Orders placed by Purchase Order must be paid within 30 days from the date of order. Trade references are required for a Purchase Order account, and account approval is subject to validation of 3 trade references.
By law, we are committed to charge applicable goods and services tax on all products shipped. At present, we sell in Australia only.
