RackCorp is not responsible for any content or transactions through the Internet other than it's own. Although RackCorp is providing the service to the customer, it has no control of the content on the Internet, and thus, is not liable for any regulation of that content through it's services. RackCorp is not liable for any data that is lost or corrupted in transmitting or receiving by the customer, nor is it liable for any incorrect or inaccurate data obtained by the customer through the Internet - this includes any delayed data.
Any problems or delays in the service, uncontrollable/unavoidable or not, will be dealt with accordingly but are not the liability of RackCorp, and as such, any loss of data, loss of profits, or loss of business as a result are not the liability of RackCorp.
Similarly, RackCorp provides a best effort product supply service, but this may be limited to vendor / supplier information which may result in incorrect information or wrong timing information.
RackCorp does not make a warranty about the suitability, reliability, or quality of goods nor services provided to the customer. The customer indemnifies RackCorp against any expense, loss, or any form of liability suffered to RackCorp if there is a breach of the Terms & Conditions of RackCorp by the customer.
Any loss of service deemed to be by RackCorp, to be it's liability will be re-credited to the customer upon request to the value of the original service / product purchase price.
Unless indicated otherwise, all prices include Australian GST. GST is payable by ALL customers regardless of country of origin.
Unless otherwise agreed, all invoices are to be paid in full before the indicated due date. Payment after the due date may result in a monthly late fee surcharge equivalent to 5% of the total amount outstanding at the beginning of the monthly billing cycle. Once an account has been terminated, the amount owing will incur an interest charge of 15% per annum, charged monthly. Please note, we may cancel services at any time for any services that are not paid by the due date.
At the discretion of RackCorp, any accounts with an amount due outstanding for more than 30 days may be terminated, and all data including emails, websites, and backups associated with the account may be destroyed upon termination.
Payments are not classified as accepted until RackCorp staff have confirmed funds clearance. In some instances such as direct deposit, or cheque payments, the process of funds clearance may take several days. It is up the customer to factor in this additional payment time to ensure their bills are paid before the due date.
RackCorp reserves the right to charge an additional fee for invoices paid via credit card. Charging of this fee will be clearly indicated if appropriate.
Where a refund is issued which is not simply credited against the customer's account, refund payment may be restricted depending upon the method used for the payment of the invoice. Invoice payments made via credit card must be refunded to the same credit card.
While we will attempt to direct debit configured accounts at the same time each month, some delays may occasionally result in late debiting of accounts. It is the customers responsibility to always ensure their account has sufficient funds to be debited for any existing or new invoices from RackCorp.
Where a direct debit fails, a failed payment fee of AU$12.00 will be charged to the customer.
Returns and Refunds
All physical products sold by RackCorp come with 12 months warranty unless otherwise otherwise indicated. This means that if the product fails due to NORMAL usage as per manufacturer instructions, a product can be returned to RackCorp for replacement - at the customers expense unless other arrangements are made with RackCorp.
Where a vendor product comes with warranty greater than 12 months, it is the customers responsibility to contact the vendor and initiate warranty return.
If a product is no longer stocked, some delay may be incurred in replacing a warranty-covered product while a replacement is sourced.
In some instances, a warranty-covered product may be unavailable, in which case RackCorp will provide a refund.
RackCorp reserves the right to provide refund / product swap for non-fault related conditions on certain products. It is the customer's responsibility to confirm with a representative of RackCorp whether a product or service can be swapped after it has been sold.
