Introduction

Welcome, these are the Terms and Conditions of Service (the “Terms”) for the website located at www.nationalon.com.au (the “Site”), including its sub-domains and its mobile optimized versions.  These Terms shall supplement our Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) and our other guidelines, terms and policies made available by us from time to time, all incorporated herein by reference.

The Site is proudly operated to you by the National Operations Network, hereinafter referred to as “NationalON”.  As used herein, the terms ‘us’, ‘its’, ‘ours’ and/or ‘we’, as used herein, refer to NationalON and/or its affiliates, assignees, successors and/or brands.  As used herein, the terms ‘you’, ‘your’, and/or ‘yourself’ refer to you, a user/visitor/browser of our Site, whether registered under an account or not.

Acceptance

If you continue to browse and use this Site, you hereby acknowledge and agree to be bound by and under these Terms, either by simple use or through a clickable action, such as the “I agree” button or otherwise.  These Terms, along with our Policy, will govern NationalON’s relationship with you in relation to the Site and any security products and services offered thereby (collectively, the “Service(s)”).  The Services include, but will not be limited to, crowd control, event security, unarmed guards, investigations and skip tracing.  Overall, your access to the Site is only offered for your individual use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party you may represent.

Updates

NationalON reserves the right to modify, amend, suspend, terminate, upgrade, update or otherwise modify the Services and Site, at any time and without notice.  Any changes to these Terms will be displayed in the Site, and we may notify you through the Site or by email.  Please refer to the last effective date where changes were last undertaken by us.  Your use of our Services after the effective date of any update– either by an account registration or simple use – thereby indicates your acceptance thereof.

Account

In order to use part or all of the functionalities and Services provided via the Site, you may need to register for an account.  You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account and for keeping your password secure and confidential.  In order to register and create an account with us, you will need to provide your name, email and other information.  You shall not disclose your user credentials to any third party.  If you suspect any unauthorized or fraudulent use of your account, please notify us immediately.  You must inform us of any changes to the information of your account.

Orders

The products offered via the Site are provided by us and by authorized third parties.  As such, NationalON hereby reserves the right to discontinue or change their specifications and to update their availability, eligibility, prices and characteristics, at any time and without any responsibility.  NationalON will undertake its reasonable commercial efforts to ensure that the quoted prices and descriptions are true, accurate, updated and correct.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, NationalON cannot fully guarantee such information and, therefore prices, availability and other item specifications are subject to change.

Upon placing an order, payment must be received by NationalON prior order processing and shipping/delivery.  Once payment clears, we will proceed to shipping.  It is made note that all items are subject to availability, and NationalON will inform you if the selected products are out of stock, and the Site will usually display alternatives for your purchase.

Delivery and shipping

Before placing a final order, you will be able to review the amount and type of shipping and handling fees for your order.  For the case of temporary unavailable items that you select to purchase, they will be shipped as they become available.  All dates displayed are estimated, since NationalON uses third party couriers to ship products, but it will use its commercially reasonable efforts to ship products within a reasonable timeframe after receipt of completed order, as well as to keep you updated via parcel tracking technology.

We usually ship all order items together where possible, and will inform you if your order requires multiple shipments before payment.  For the case of downloadable products, we will make them available after your payment goes through our systems.

Depending on your place of residence, NationalON may collect taxes on orders, and you will be able to review them before placing your final order.  Tax obligations are not optional, but if you deem that we are charging taxes based on erroneous geographical information of yours, please contact us to solve the matter.  NationalON may not be able to sell certain items outside Australia, and therefore we may reject orders with different delivery addresses.

Returns and refunds

If you have a problem with your order, please contact us as soon as possible as indicated below.  We offer a thirty (30) day guarantee for defective, mistaken and damaged products.  As a general rule, there is no refund for downloadable, digital products.  Please include a description of the items in question, including the reason for return, your name, address, account information, payment details, products along with images of the shipping package, the product and any defects or shipping damages.  Since some of our products are provided by third parties, there may be some delays in processing your return and refunds, and we will contact the appropriate supplier in order to help your case.
