4. WEBSITE ORDERS & DELIVERIES
Where the goods are not available, you will be notified of this by BugRugs as soon as possible. BugRugs aims to include up-to-date pictures of all of the products for sale on the Website. However, our picture of the goods may differ from the actual goods delivered.
BugRugs reserves the right to restrict sales to retail quantities when supplying resellers and distributors. BugRugs or its agent will deliver the goods you order to the address you specify in your order, within the agreed time frame, subject to their availability.
Anyone at the delivery address who receives the goods will be presumed by BugRugs to be authorised to receive the goods. If there is no-one at the delivery address or no-one of appropriate age to receive and pay for the order, BugRugs may charge you additional delivery fees. If your goods include products in respect of which the law prescribes a minimum age for purchase, you must be 18 years of age or older (or such other higher minimum age as is prescribed by the law), and you must ensure that a person of appropriate age is available to accept delivery of the goods. BugRugs may refuse to deliver the goods if the person receiving the goods is unable or unwilling to provide evidence of proof of age.
Once the goods are delivered to you, you will own them and it is your responsibility if they are lost or damaged.

the applicable price for the relevant goods confirmed by BugRugs; and/or the delivery and handling fee specified on the Website at that time, or confirmed at a later date.

Prices and availability are subject to change without notice. Typographical, product description, pricing, images and other errors are subject to correction, even after orders and/or payment are accepted.
BugRugs may vary prices in the event of price changes or mistakes made by suppliers on reasonable prior notice to you. If BugRugs requests payment for increased prices, you may cancel the order by giving notice to BugRugs, which must be received within 7 days of the announcement of the increase.
GST will be included within the prices and fees charged by BugRugs and is payable by you at the same time as you pay such prices and fees. "GST" means the same as in the A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999 (Cth).
