1.1 This Agreement applies to you (Customer or you) and your use of the website, www.smithandsmithlighting.com.au ('our Site’) of Smith & Smith Lighting & Decor Pty Ltd (Smith&Smith, S&S or 'we' or 'us') and the provision of the goods (‘Goods’).
1.2 By browsing and using the Site, or placing an order for Goods, you automatically agree, and warrant to us that you have read and understood, the terms of this Agreement as set out below, and that you have the legal capacity to enter into a legally binding agreement with us.
1.3 You must ensure that your access to, or use of our Site is not illegal or prohibited by laws which apply to you.
1.4 You may access our Site at any time, unless we have restricted access to perform necessary maintenance, updates or upgrades.

1.6 Orders for the Goods received from the Customer shall be deemed to be received by S&S at the time that we send an order confirmation to your nominated email address. Each order placed by the Customer represents an offer to purchase the Goods for the price notified at the time you place your order, which is subject to this Agreement. S&S reserves the right to accept, reject or cancel any order in its sole and absolute discretion. We will endeavour to notify you of a rejection at the time of the order or within a reasonable time thereafter. Each order that we accept results in a separate binding agreement between you and us and for the supply of Goods in accordance with this Agreement.
1.7 S&S will use all reasonable efforts to deliver the Goods to the Customer at the Delivery Address, within a reasonable time from the date of the order. Where this Agreement refers to collection of the Goods, then all references to 'delivery' herein shall be construed as meaning the time of collection (as the context permits).
1.8 The dispatch or delivery time provided for particular Goods is an estimate only and is subject to change without notice. Delivery time depends on factors such as your specific location and factors affecting the freight, courier and/or delivery carrier. A notification email will be provided to you with details of the delivery, including the estimated arrival time, freight, courier or carrier contact details and consignment note or tracking number. You should direct any queries in relation to the delivery to the relevant freight, courier or delivery carrier. S&S will use reasonable efforts in attempt to assist your delivery inquiries with the relevant freight, courier or delivery carrier. Despite any provision to the contrary, to the maximum extent permitted by law, S&S does not hold any responsibility for events that may result in the delayed dispatch or delivery of the Goods. You acknowledge and agree that delivery is to front door only and does not include the installation, unpacking or rubbish removal for the Goods. Without limiting any of the forgoing, where this Agreement specifies a time by which S&S is required to supply the Goods or perform any other activity under this Agreement, you acknowledge and agree that such time is an estimate only, a failure to comply with which will not constitute a breach of this Agreement.
1.9 Despite any provision to the contrary, to the maximum extent permitted by law, S&S does not provide any warranty, nor take any responsibility or liability whatsoever, for any aspect of the delivery or dispatch process, which is the responsibility of the freight, courier or delivery carrier, nor for any loss, liability, damage, defect or delay that may arise from such dispatch or delivery (including late dispatch or delivery).
1.10 All deliveries will take place during Business Days. The Customer shall ensure that it or its duly authorised representative shall be present at the date and time of delivery of the Goods. If the Customer is not home on Business Days or on the expected date and time of delivery of the Goods, the Customer should consider arranging and/or providing special instructions with the freight, courier or delivery carrier. S&S takes no responsibility for any such arrangement that you may enter into with freight, courier or delivery carrier.
1.11 Despite any provision to the contrary, to the maximum extent permitted by law, acceptance of delivery by the Customer or the Customer’s duly authorised representative shall constitute conclusive evidence that the Customer has inspected the Goods and found them to be in good condition, complete in every way and fit for purpose. If required by S&S (or the freight, courier or delivery carrier), the Customer or the Customer’s duly authorised representative shall sign a receipt confirming acceptance.
2.1 Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all risk in, and to, the Goods purchased shall pass to the Customer upon delivery to, or collection by, the Customer, its agent or its duly authorised representative. Once risk in the Goods passes, the Customer will be solely responsible for them.

3.2 The Customer acknowledges that until title in, and to, the Goods passes to the Customer: (a) the Customer holds the Goods as bailee of S&S and (b) the Customer shall store the Goods separately and in such a manner that the Goods are clearly identified as property of S&S. Until title has passed, the Customer must not do anything which seeks to create an encumbrance, lien, charge or other interest in or over the Goods.
4.1 S&S accepts payment by credit cards issued by Visa, Mastercard and Amex. We also accept Paypal, Poli, Zip and AfterPay. It is the Customer's responsibility to ensure all its details are correct at the time of the transaction.

The interest shall be paid at the daily rate of 5% above the Reserve Bank Australia’s overdraft lending rate from the date that the payment was due to the date of payment.
4.5 Any payment made by a Customer for the Goods, or any other amount due and payable under this Agreement, will be made without withholding or set-off.
