Terms of Use

WELCOME TO THE Absolute Filtration WEBSITE (THE "SITE"). PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF USE CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE. YOUR USE OF THIS SITE IS EXPRESSLY CONDITIONED UPON YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS OF USE. BY USING THIS SITE, YOU SIGNIFY YOUR ASSENT TO THESE TERMS OF USE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY PART OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS OF USE, YOU SHOULD NOT USE THIS SITE. IN ADDITION, WHEN USING PARTICULAR FEATURES AND SERVICES ON THE SITE, YOU WILL BE SUBJECT TO ANY POSTED GUIDELINES AND RULES APPLICABLE TO SUCH FEATURES AND SERVICES, ALL OF WHICH ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE.

Purpose of the Site

The purpose of the Site is to provide you with information about Absolute Filtration and the products we sell. In addition, you may be able to purchase products and services through the Site.

Product and Service Availability

Reference to any product or service on the Site does not constitute an offer to sell or supply that product or service and does not mean that the product or service is available. Absolute Filtration Limited controls and operates the Site from its headquarters in Howick, Auckland, New Zealand. We in no way imply that the materials on our Site are appropriate or available for use outside of New Zealand and we may not be able to fill your order if you require shipping outside of New Zealand.

Inventory information is generally available on the Site for products. This information can be used to estimate the likelihood that merchandise will be shipped immediately after you place your order. However, we cannot guarantee that a product listed as "In stock" will actually ship right away, as inventory can change significantly from day to day. In rare cases, a product may be in stock when you place your order, and sold out by the time your order is processed. However, if an item that is marked "In stock" in your shopping cart when you place your order is sold out at the time your order is processed, we will notify you by e-mail that your order will not be filled and your credit card will not be charged. 

Absolute Filtration will make every effort to get the item(s) back in stock as soon as possible. If for any reason we determine that a backordered item is no longer available, we will cancel the item from your order and notify you via email. We will not charge your credit card until the item ships. Therefore, your credit card needs no adjustment upon order cancellation.

Order Cancellation Policy

You may cancel an entire order or an individual item from an order that has not yet been shipped by contacting us via our 'Contact Us' page. You will be notified via email when your account has been credited (usually within 48 hours of receiving your cancellation email). Please note that most orders are packed and shipped within 10 days of receipt of payment and orders cannot be cancelled once they have been shipped. However you may return the items. Refer to our Returns Policy (below).

Returns

We guarantee your satisfaction with all products supplied by Absolute Filtration. You may return any of our products, with your receipt, for a merchandise exchange, credit, or a full refund of the purchase price (minus shipping and handling charges). If you receive a damaged or defective item, we will promptly send you a replacement or issue you a full refund after you have returned the damaged or defective product. You will not be charged any additional shipping or handling fees for replacement of such damaged or defective shipments. 

Product Orders

PRICES AND AVAILABIliTY OF THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES LISTED ON THE SITE ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. The listing, description of, or reference to, a product or service on the Site does not imply that the product or service is presently available or that we endorse that product or service. In the event a product or service is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error, error in pricing information received from a supplier, or any other reason, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any order placed for such product or service at the incorrect price, even if the order has been confirmed and/or your credit card has been charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we shall promptly issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.

Order Acceptance

Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason or for no reason at all. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any product or service.
