8. Title.

Title to Goods ordered passes to you when the Goods are shipped, or if later when you make full payment. If the Goods ordered are paid in full prior to shipping, the Supplier recommends that the customer put any necessary insurance for the goods in place. The Supplier does not insure the Goods.

9. Instalments.

Where you have ordered more than one item, we may make delivery in one or more instalments.

10. Your right to cancel.

If you wish to cancel your order for any reason and return the Goods delivered, the Goods must be in their original condition with packaging complete and seals unbroken. You must notify our team in advance of returning the Goods. You should also include a return note and proof of purchase. You are responsible for the direct cost of the initial shipment of the Goods to you and for the direct cost in returning the Goods to us.  Where a refund is requested, any shipping amounts incurred by bigsurf will be deducted from the refund amount. No refund will be made until the Goods are returned to us and in any event no refund will be forthcoming if the Goods are not received by us within 30 days of you notifying us of your intention to return them.

In the event of an exchange, for example as a result of the incorrect size having being ordered initially, the customer is responsible for the direct cost of returning the goods to us, and for the direct cost to resend the exchanged goods back to the customer.  To make this process easy for the customer, we can arrange our courier to collect the item from the customer and return it to the customer after exchange, but the direct cost incurred must be pre paid by the customer.

11. Prices Quoted.

Unless otherwise stated, prices quoted are only valid during your browser session.

12. Queries and Complaints.

Notification of queries and/or complaints must be notified to us in writing within fourteen (14) days of receipt of the Goods.

Subject to Clause 17, if we are in breach of the warranties given by us under Clause 13, our liability shall be limited to: 14.1. replacement of the Goods concerned; or 14.2. at our option, reimbursement of the price. 14.3. at our option, repair of the Goods supplied. We will notify the Customer if the Goods need to be returned to the Manufacturer for repair.

15. No Other Liability.

Subject to Clause 17, we will have no further liability to you other than as described in Clause 14, whether under these terms sale or on any other basis including liability in tort as a result of the sale of the Goods.

16. Consequential Loss, etc.

Subject to Clause 17, we will not under any circumstances be liable to the Customer by reason of any representation or warranty, condition or other term or any duty of common law, or under the express terms of these terms, for any consequential, special, incidental or punitive loss or damage (whether for loss of current or future profits, loss of enterprise value or otherwise) and whether occasioned by our negligence, or that of our employees or agents or otherwise, even if advised of the possibility of such damages.

17. Non-Excludable Liability.

Nothing in these conditions of sale shall exclude or limit our liability for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence, or that of any of our employees or agents, nor shall they operate to exclude or limit any statutory rights which cannot be legally excluded or limited, including the statutory rights of a consumer.

18. Force Majeure.

We are not liable for delays in performance (including delivery or service) caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control and will be entitled to a time extension for performance. Examples include strikes, problems with suppliers or transport, industrial relations problems, exchange fluctuations, governmental or regulatory reaction, product recall by a Manufacturer and natural disasters. If the conditions last for more than 2 months, the Agreement may be terminated by either party without compensation.
