3. Terms and conditions of sale
3a. Contract of sale
This web site is operated by Wholesome Hub ("we", "us" or "our"). By using the wholesomehub.net.au website you are bound by these terms and conditions. All use and purchases made on this website are governed by these Terms and Conditions at any time. If you use or order goods after we have published any changes you will be bound by those changes. Accordingly, you should check prior to each or use order to ensure that you understand the precise terms and conditions applicable to your site visit or purchase. To assist you in determining whether the Terms and Conditions have changed since your most recent order we will display the date and time when these Terms and Conditions were most recently updated.
We will confirm acceptance of your order by a message on our website immediately after you have placed your order or by sending you an email to the email address you have provided to us. At this point the purchase contract will be made and we will supply the goods to you in accordance with your order and these Terms and Conditions.
3b. Pricing and delivery charges
All prices are stated in Australian dollars and where applicable include GST.
The price of goods will be as quoted on the website at the time you confirm your order subject only to any inadvertent technical error for which Wholesome Hub will not be liable. If you subsequently amend your order to add items, the prices charged will be those applicable to the new item(s) at the time that the amended order is confirmed.
Each order you make may include a delivery charge. If your order is subject to a delivery charge, it will be shown to you as a separate charge on the delivery confirmation page before you confirm your order. Any delivery charge added to your order will be dependent upon, amongst other things, the value of your order and your delivery address and charges may vary from week to week.
3c. Methods of payment
Payment may be made by Credit Dard, PayPal and Direct Deposit. On occasion we may issue vouchers or "money off" coupons which will be accepted towards payment of an order. You cannot pay for your order by cash or cheque.
The credit cards accepted by us are those listed on the web site on the date on which your order is placed.
Authority for payment will be requested from your card issuer at the time of your order. We 'debit' your card with the full price of your order on receipt of your order.

We reserve the right to restrict deliveries in certain areas including the right to eliminate certain areas from our delivery schedule altogether.
Products are subject to availability. We may limit the quantities of goods (particularly goods on special offer) supplied to any one customer if in our opinion the quantity ordered jeopardises availability for other customers.
If delivering to a physical address it is your responsibility to ensure that an appropriate person is available at the delivery address as they may be required to sign for goods. In the event that you instruct us to leave a delivery unattended at your address we expressly disclaim all liability which may arise by virtue of the delivery being left unattended for a period of time. This includes but is not limited to theft, tampering, contamination and the result of any change in temperature.

3f. Warranty and liability

Furthermore, we will not be deemed to be in breach of contract or of these Terms and Conditions as a result of any delay in our performance or failure to perform our obligations if that delay or failure to perform is due to any cause or circumstance beyond our reasonable control including, but not limited to, fire, flood and other acts of God, strikes, riot, accident, disruption to energy supplies, civil commotion, acts of terrorism or war, breakdown of equipment, road traffic problems.
