PLACING AN ORDER AND PAYMENT
1.1 By completing a Purchase Order, You are making an offer to purchase the Product at the price set out in the Website, subject to any subsequent notification of price by QUICK RESPONSE PTY LTD to You in accordance with clause 1.5.
1.2 Payment must be made at the time of submitting the Purchase Order. Payment can be made by credit card. QUICK RESPONSE PTY LTD accepts Visa and Mastercard.

You warrant that You are an authorised user of the PayPal account.
1.3 All Purchase Orders placed through this Website are subject to confirmation and acceptance by QUICK RESPONSE PTY LTD. We will email you with confirmation of the receipt of Your Purchase Order, and then Acceptance by QUICK RESPONSE PTY LTD will be upon Your receipt of the email confirming despatch of the Product in accordance with clause 3.4 and 3.5. QUICK RESPONSE PTY LTD may reject Your Purchase Order, and refund any payment made by You, at any time prior to Your receipt of this acceptance by QUICK RESPONSE PTY LTD.
1.4 The Purchase Order must be paid in full immediately upon entry into the Agreement. All transactions are settled in Australian Dollars (AUD). If you are ordering from outside Australia, and your bank account or credit card is held in a different currency, you can still order by credit card - your currency will automatically be converted to Australian Dollars when you complete the transaction. The conversion rate varies from day to day with the current exchange rate. Many banks also charge a small currency conversion fee, contact your bank or credit provider for details. In some areas of the site, prices will be shown with an estimate of the price in your home currency. These converted prices are for information purposes only, to help you get an idea of the approximate cost of a product, and they may not be the exact amounts that will appear on your credit card statement. The final charge to your card is made in Australian Dollars and the ultimate conversion rate is determined by your bank or credit provider. Therefore we are not able to take responsibility if the final amount charged to your card differs slightly from the estimated conversions we provide.
1.5 QUICK RESPONSE PTY LTD may vary prices in the event of price changes or mistakes on reasonable prior notice to You.
If QUICK RESPONSE PTY LTD requests payment for increased prices, You may cancel the order by giving notice to QUICK RESPONSE PTY LTD, which must be received within seven days of the announcement of the increase.
1.6 The secure credit card payment system is powered by eWAY Payment Systems. This Website is protected by SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a security device which ensures that any data which you enter into a secure area of the site is encrypted during transmission over the Internet. SSL utilises data encryption to create a secure environment for you to conduct your online transactions. In order for SSL to be effective, you must be using an SSL compliant browser (e.g. Netscape Navigator 3.0 or Internet Explorer Microsoft 3.0 and above). In Netscape you can determine whether encryption is active by looking at the little key in the lower left-hand corner of the Netscape window. A solid key indicates that the document is encrypted, while a broken key indicates that the document is not encrypted. In Microsoft Internet Explorer, a solid padlock will appear on the bottom right of the screen when encryption is in use.
