Acceptance of Terms
By joining the OzeVillage Network you're agreeing to abide by the Terms of Service below. For purposes of these Terms of Service, the OzeVIllage Network is defined as all English language, Australian based web sites, web pages, and channels controlled and/or operated by OzeVillage Pty Ltd including, without limitation, the OzeVillage.com.au and the GourmetShopper.com.au web sites. These rules and guidelines have been created to protect you and to ensure that OzeVillage is safe and can be enjoyed by everybody. By agreeing to these terms, you're taking responsibility for your own actions.
By accessing and using the websites operated by OzeVillage Pty Ltd, you agree to these terms, conditions and disclaimers as amended from time to time ("Terms") and acknowledge that you have read and understand these Terms. If you do not agree with these Terms, do not use any of the OzeVillage websites.
OzeVillage reserves the right to change any content on the website or the Terms at any time and from time to time, by updating this page within any OzeVillage website. As you are bound by any such amendments to the Terms you should therefore periodically check the current Terms.
An order by you is an offer by you to purchase a particular product at the price and delivery charges specified in the details of that order. The order must contain your name, email address ( if available ), shipping address, credit card number and the expiry date of your credit card so that OzeVillage can process your order. OzeVillage reserves the right to accept or reject your order for any reason, including, without limitation, an error in the price or an error in the product description posted on the site or the unavailability of any product, . There maybe reasons why we or a merchant in OzeVillage cannot fulfill your order, therefore your contract with OzeVillage only comes into existence when OzeVillage advises you that it has accepted your order and your payment has been confirmed.
Prices and Products
Information on prices and availability of products and delivery charges are maintained by responsible merchants participating within an OzeVillage website. OzeVillage therefore cannot guarantee that all details are current at the time of issue. Prices, availability of products and delivery charges may change at any time and are subject to availability.
The merchants represented in OzeVillage will retain title to the products you order until you have made payment in full for those products.
