By incorporating standards that all of our e-Commerce Buyers are expected to comply with, it gives our Vendors a certain level of assurance and confidence when selling their Products on the Website and sets reasonable expectations that all of our e-Commerce Buyers can understand and follow.

For this reason, we ask all e-Commerce Buyers to be familiar with and uphold the e-Commerce Buyer Standards and Conditions of Use outlined in this document.

e-Commerce Buyer Standards and Conditions of Use:

All e-Commerce Buyers are expected to meet and maintain certain standards including, but not limited to:

  • providing honest and accurate information about themselves when required.
  • providing honest and accurate payment information when required.
  • leaving honest and accurate reviews on Vendor Products and Services.

  • Failure to comply with any of the e-Commerce Buyer Standards constitutes a breach of our Terms and understandably may result in the immediate suspension or termination of your right to access the Website, and our products and Services.

e-Commerce Buyer/Vendor Relationship:

The Website provides a platform for e-Commerce Buyers to browse and acquire certain Products and Services from Vendors. It is important to note that when you are purchasing a Product from one of the independent Vendors on the website , you are purchasing it from them and not from Wilkgard Technology Group itself. Only the Wilkgard Technology Group products listed on the Website are purchased directly from us. Our Vendors, who display and sell their products and services on the Website are thoroughly vetted and chosen by us, because they provide exceptional quality products and provide best services to their customers.

Purchasing Products and Services from the Website:

When you buy a Product from the Website, you’re directly supporting an independent business, each with its unique listings, policies, processing times, and payment systems. By making a purchase from a Vendor on the Website, you agree that you have:

  • Read the Product Information carefully before making a purchase.
  • Submitted appropriate and correct payment for item(s) purchased.
  • Provided accurate contact and delivery information to the Vendor.
  • When purchasing a Product, you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Order including, without limitation, your credit or debit card number, expiration date of your credit or debit card, credit or debit card security number, your billing address, and your shipping information. By submitting such information, you grant us the right to provide the information to third parties for the purposes of facilitating the completion of the Order.
  • The Website is not designed to provide qualitative advice regarding the fitness for purpose and merchantability of any Product. We strongly advise you to exercise caution and undertake your own due diligence in conducting any transactions through the Website. You can use the contact details of any of the Vendors to get more information about any of the products you wish to purchase.
  • When you place an Order for Products from the Website, you are bound by that decision and are required to pay the relevant purchase price to the Vendor (unless otherwise specified by the Vendor). A failure to pay is a clear breach of these standards.
  • Making unreasonable demands of a Vendor constitutes a breach of these standards. As an e-Commerce Buyer, you are subject to the express Conditions of Use the Vendor has outlined in their Product Information. Demanding the Vendor to change the way they process payment, deliver the Products, or to significantly change the purchase price is not acceptable.
  • You must not contact a Vendor for the purpose of requesting or persuading the Vendor to enter into a transaction outside of the Website.
  • All Products should be purchased through the Wilkgard Technology Group RF Specialist MarketPlace. If Products are purchased outside of the Website, the Buyer will not be afforded the protections offered by Wilkgard Technology Group when using Website. Wilkgard Technology Group will not be liable for any losses incurred by the Buyer when the relevant Products are purchased outside of the Website.

Payment and Delivery of Products:

  • For each Order, the Buyer will pay, via an accepted payment method, the applicable price for the relevant Products, including any relevant taxes and GST, confirmed by the Vendor and a delivery and handling fee as set and calculated by the Vendor.
  • If payment is made via a third-party payment system, you must abide by any terms and conditions applicable to that payment system.
  • We are not responsible for the shipping or delivery of any Product, except Wilkgard Technology Group products. It is your responsibility to make contact with the other Vendors from whom you have purchased the product regarding delivery.

Cancellations and Refunds:

  • Wilkgard Technology Group reserves the right to refuse or cancel any Order at any time for any reason including but not limited to:
  • Product unavailability.
  • Errors in the Product Information.
  • Errors in your Order; or
  • If fraud or an unauthorized transaction is suspected.
  • If you wish to cancel an Order, it is your responsibility to make contact with the Vendor from whom you have made the purchase. Each Vendor may have their own cancellation and/or refund policies which will be clearly defined and stated on all Product descriptions.
  • If a Product you have ordered is defective, does not comply with the specifications contained in the Product Information, or is not delivered to you, you may be entitled to a refund. Please review the relevant Vendor’s refund policy. We suggest that you reach out to them, as most Vendors will be more than happy to help you to ensure that you are happy with your order. If the issue persists, you may contact Wilkgard Technology Group to assist you. While we don’t guarantee or promise any resolutions or refunds, we will use our best endeavours to assist you in resolving the issue.

Vendor Ratings and Reviews:

As an e-Commerce Buyer, you are able to review Vendor Products and Services. When providing a review for a Product, you warrant that:

  • you have purchased and used the Product.
  • the content of the review is honest and accurate; and
  • you have not falsified the review so as to damage the reputation of the Vendor who provided the Product.
  • Under no circumstances may an e-Commerce Buyer participate in any coordinated activity to artificially boost Vendor ratings or adopt the process of ‘shilling’ – i.e., creating fake accounts in order to leave positive reviews or ratings for a Vendor (in turn making the Products look more desirable). Shilling is dishonest, sneaky and a clear breach of these standards.
  • You also cannot threaten to leave a Vendor negative feedback if that Vendor won’t do something that wasn’t provided for in the Product Information.
  • In the interests of honesty, no Vendor may delete or manipulate any negative review that an e-Commerce Buyer has left regarding their Product (provided the review was itself fair and accurate). They may, however, leave a response to any negative feedback addressing the issue at hand.
  • If a Vendor does not agree with any review you have left on their Product, they may communicate with you in an amicable and friendly manner to address the issue. If the issue is resolved, the Vendor may ask you to clarify (but not remove) the review and highlight how their issue has been resolved. Or the Vendor may respond to the review highlighting how the issue was resolved.
  • You agree not to post any review that contains any unlawful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, illegal or infringing material.
  • We have the right, but not the obligation, to review, edit, or delete any review or feedback that we deem is offensive, inappropriate, unfair, or false.

e-Commerce Buyer Complaints & Queries:

  • If any legitimate dispute or issue arises in regard to the purchase of Products from the Website, we ask that you attempt to come to an amicable resolution with the Vendor in a polite and reasonable manner – often it is just a misunderstanding. If a dispute is escalated to the Wilkgard Technology Group Pty. Ltd. team because the disputing parties cannot come to an understanding or agreement regarding the issue, we may try and help you resolve your issue with a particular Vendor, but we will not be responsible for resolving any such disputes. If we agree to assist you in resolving the dispute, you agree to cooperate with us in investigating and resolving the dispute, and you agree that any determination we make will be binding on you and that you will comply with the outcome of our determination.
  • You agree to release Wilkgard Technology Group Pty. Ltd. from any claims, demands, and damages in connection with the dispute, or our role in resolving the dispute.
  • Making frivolous or unnecessary complaints in relation to a Vendor is a breach of these standards. Any complaints made must be serious and based on valid and sufficient grounds.

Privacy and Confidentiality:

  • Any personal information that you receive in the course of purchasing Products or otherwise using the Website must be collected and processed in accordance with all applicable privacy laws.
