  1. Terms of Product Purchase

The Agreement

In addition to the Terms of Use, these terms and conditions (“the Purchase Terms”) set out the additional terms and conditions under which you may purchase from BOTPOTS products appearing on this website. By completing the customer application process and purchasing products from this website, an agreement exists between you and BOTPOTS once BOTPOTS accepts an order. Each accepted order is a separate agreement.

Customer Application

You must complete the customer application process before placing any orders. You warrant that all information and data provided by you is accurate, complete and up to date. You will promptly notify BOTPOTS if there is any change to this information or data. You must take responsibility for the safekeeping of your username and password, as you are liable if an unauthorised person uses your username and password.

Orders

You place an order with BOTPOTS by selecting products and pressing the “purchase now” button on the checkout page. BOTPOTS reserves the right to accept or reject an order for any reason including without limitation, unavailability of product; an error in the price, image or the product description; or error in your order. Orders are deemed received by BOTPOTS at the time of successful transmission of the order, and you will thereafter be unable to cancel the order to the extent permitted by law. Orders are deemed accepted by BOTPOTS upon BOTPOTS acknowledging such order or failing to reject such order within 14 days. We only accept orders from New Zealand.

Product Availability

BOTPOTS uses its best endeavours to ensure products ordered are available for delivery, and in most cases will notify you where a product is unavailable prior to you completing your order. However you acknowledge that in some cases this is not possible and BOTPOTS may need to reject an order you have placed for a product where BOTPOTS establishes that it is actually unavailable for delivery. In such cases BOTPOTS will refund in full all amounts you paid in respect of such unavailable product. BOTPOTS cannot provide rain checks for products ordered online, and where permitted by law reserves the right to limit the sale of products to reasonable or normal household quantities.

Payment

You must pay for your products purchased on this website at the time of placing an order. We accept bank transfer & major credit cards including Mastercard and Visa. Products may also be purchased using Laybuy, subject to Laybuy’s terms www.laybuy.com/terms.

Delivery

Delivery terms included delivery areas, delivery costs and estimated delivery times are contained in BOTPOTS’s Delivery Policy. The Delivery Policy is expressly incorporated in these Purchase Terms. Please note that to purchase products, your delivery address must be within a suburb where BOTPOTS provides delivery. Orders will not be processed for delivery to an address in a suburb not in BOTPOTS’s delivery area. Risk in the products passes to you upon delivery to your nominated delivery address, and title passes upon payment for the products in full.
