    2. Where more than one individual or business has entered into this agreement, the Clients shall be jointly and severally liable for all payments of the Price.

    2. Payment shall be due prior to delivery of the Goods.
    3. Payment will be made by PayPal, Credit Card or bank deposit.
    4. Date of payment will be deemed the date monies are showing as deposited in our account. Please note if paying via direct debit or e-cheque, this can take up to 3 business days to transfer.
    5. International fees are the responsibility of each client. We advise using PayPal and linking your account to avoid fees if you are not located in Australia.
  4. Ordering
    1. Incomplete orders either on the website or manually created through head office will not be held from stock levels. All orders must be completed and the invoice paid within the time frame given on all invoices. If the invoice remains unpaid and stock levels are unable to fulfill the order, Roccoco will not be able to fill the order until stock is replenished. Roccoco will not be liable for any inconvenience this causes to your client or business.
    2. Every attempt is made to dispatch by the following business day. However, Roccoco can’t guarantee this depending on the volume of orders, time of year and public holidays.
    3. If a product is out of stock and on back order the order will not ship until all products are in stock. If you do not wish to wait for the products a separate order must be placed.
    4. Once an order is placed it cannot be adjusted or cancelled. All orders are final after checkout. If you have forgotten to purchase an item you must place a separate order and pay separate and additional shipping costs.
    5. Sales are subject to availability of stock. We cannot honour sales to Clients once sold out. The sale only applies to new orders placed and there are norain-checks. If you placed an order before the sale the discount will not be applied.
  5. Delivery of Goods
    1. All orders are shipped via our designated freight carrier unless an alternative method is requested, and paid for, by the individual.
    2. All orders are shipped FOB shipping point, which means ownership and risk of loss transfers to the Stockists account once the shipment is delivered to the shipping carrier.
    3. Once an order is dispatched the client is considered to receive the goods. Signature on delivery is recommended in the unlikely event that your order goes missing or items are missing from your order. Signature on delivery is included as standard in the shipping costs even if Roccoco is subsidizing the cost. If you choose at checkout to remove signature on delivery, then Roccoco will not be liable for any missing items within the shipment or parcels that get lost or stolen.
    4. The process of fulfilling an order begins as soon as you place your order on the website. Once an order has been released for fulfillment, it cannot be changed.
    5. The Client shall make all arrangements necessary to take delivery of the Goods whenever they are tendered for delivery. In the event that the Client is unable to take delivery of the Goods as arranged then the Supplier shall be entitled to charge a reasonable fee for re delivery.
    6. Delivery of the Goods to a third party nominated by the Client is deemed to be delivery to the Client for the purposes of this agreement.
    7. When you place an order online, it is your sole responsibility to keep your account updated for Billing, Shipping and Business address and all associated contact details. If you place an order and you have not updated addresses and your order is delivered to the incorrect address, Roccoco is not liable and will not replace your order if you are unable to track down your delivery. This also applies to manual orders placed by head office. As we ask you to check every detail especially shipping details before proceeding to payment. If you do not check your invoice and inform head office of amendments needed, again we will not be liable for orders that are delivered incorrectly.
  6. Risk
    1. Where the Client expressly requests the Supplier to leave Goods outside the clients shipping address for collection or to deliver the Goods to an unattended location then such Goods shall be left at the Client’s sole risk and it shall be the Client’s responsibility to ensure the Goods are insured adequately or at all.
    2. Roccoco accepts no liability if the products are not used in the manner intended.
    3. Roccoco accepts no liability if you mix our products with other non-Roccoco products. We do not know what adverse reactions may occur as a result.
    4. In the event that you have a reaction to a product and under the proviso that you have not used any other skin care line and the product has been used the product in the manner intended by Roccoco, the following must occur. You will need to provide evidence in the form of photos whilst your client is experiencing the reaction. You will also be required to submit the reaction form that has been completed by your client. This needs to be sent to head office with the photos. You will be asked to return the products to head office. When all of the above conditions are met, we will determine if the reaction is genuine and if a replacement or credit is deemed fair and equitable.
  7. Defects
    1. The Stockist shall inspect the Goods on delivery and shall within three (3) business days of delivery (time being of the essence) notify the Supplier of any alleged defect, shortage in quantity, damage or failure to comply with the description or quote. This does not include faulty packaging e.g. Products not pumping. Client shall afford the Supplier an opportunity to inspect the Goods within a reasonable time following delivery if the Client believes the Goods are defective in any way. If the Client shall fail to comply with these provisions the Goods shall be presumed to be free from any defect or damage and Roccoco will be excluded from any liability. For defective Goods, which the Supplier has agreed in writing that the Client is entitled to reject, the Supplier’s liability is limited to (at the Supplier’s discretion) replacing the Goods.
    2. Photos or videos are required for any claim involving defects or damage to the goods. All goods are to be returned to head office.
    3. No replacements/credit will be sent until the Stockist has posted the item. If the goods have been found to be defective then a refund or credit of the shipping cost will be provided. Once we receive your items a replacement will be sent out.
    4. In the event of missing parcels or missing items our freight carrier requires photographs of the package’s condition when you received it to evaluate whether tampering with the parcel has occurred.

  15. General
    1. Proximity and exclusively – Roccoco has the right to approve a new stockist account in any location. If a stockist wishes to have exclusivity in a geographical location, each case will be assessed on their merits. At the very minimum exclusivity would not be considered in major cities with medium to large population numbers unless a stockist was meeting all of our terms and conditions and ordering a minimum of $10,000.00 per month from Roccoco. Even in this instance we would only grant exclusivity for an agreed distance for example 15 km radius of the business address and would need to be an agreed time period and at the end of that agreed period will be reassessed to ensure the agreement is still viable for both parties. In areas that have a very small population that would be considered not viable for more than one clinic to sustain a business income within the same location, it would be a case by case decision.
    2. If any provision of these terms and conditions shall be invalid, void, illegal or unenforceable the validity, existence, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected, prejudiced or impaired.
