PRODUCTS & ORDERS

The products made available on the site, including any samples Blanc Spa may provide to you, are for personal use only. You may not sell or resell any products you purchase or otherwise receive from Blanc Spa.

All orders placed are an offer of purchase and are subject to acceptance by Blanc Spa. If an order is not accepted a full refund will occur at the earliest possible convenience. Blanc Spa reserves the right to refuse an offer for any reason.

Without limiting the above, Blanc Spa reserves the right to refuse or reduce the quantity of any orders that it reasonably believes are for the purposes of resale or otherwise may result in a violation of these terms and conditions, as determined by Blanc Spa in its sole discretion. As part of Blanc Spa’s order processing procedures, Blanc Spa will screen all received orders for fraud or other types of unauthorised or illegal activity. Without limiting the above, Blanc Spa reserves the right to refuse to process an order due to suspected fraud or unauthorised or illegal activity. If fraud or unauthorised or illegal activity is suspected, Blanc Spa may reject your order or its customer service department may call you at the phone number you provided (or use your email address) to confirm your order. Blanc Spa also reserve the right to cancel any accounts or refuse to ship to certain addresses due to suspected fraud or unauthorised or illegal activity. We take these measures to protect our customers as well as ourselves from fraud or other unauthorised or illegal activity.

Given the popularity of our products, except where prohibited by law, Blanc Spa may limit the number of products available for purchase by any one customer, including without limitation so that as many customers as possible may enjoy products supplied by Blanc Spa.

In the event of the requested products being unavailable Blanc Spa may cancel the transaction and effect a full refund.

 

PRICES & PAYMENT

All prices listed on the site are in Australian dollars and are inclusive of any Australian Goods and Services Tax (as applicable).

The prices indicated may be changed at any time without advance notice. However, the products shall be charged at the rate in force when the customer’s order was validated.

Where the customer pays by payment card, the customer warrants that they have the necessary rights to use the payment card and that they are fully authorised to use it to pay for the order. The customer also warrants that this card gives access to sufficient funds corresponding to the amount of the order. Failing this, Blanc Spa reserves the right to cancel the sale according. Blanc Spa is under no obligation to ship any goods ordered until payment for those goods has been received. Payment by cheque is not accepted.

 

PRE-AUTHORISATION

When you make a purchase on the site by credit card, Blanc Spa may conduct a pre-authorisation on your credit or debit card for a portion of the purchase price. Once the pre-authorisation is processed, we will then instruct your financial institution to cancel the pre-authorisation. Please note that no funds are taken from your account at pre-authorisation but a temporary ‘hold’ is placed on them. Once we have cancelled the pre-authorisation, it may take up to seven (7) days for your financial institution to release the funds before you are able to access them.

 

INTENDED USE
