In these Terms and Conditions of Sale (“Conditions of Sale“), “we” or “us” means Genesis 1 Student Accommodation ABN 26 618 203 606 and “you” means the person, organisation or entity that purchased the products or related services from us.
Please read through these Conditions of Sale carefully as they form the agreement under which we will supply products and services to you. These Conditions of Sale apply to all sales made by us to consumers whether products and services are purchased online or over the telephone.
1.1 Telephone Orders
You may place an order with us over the telephone or by completing and submitting to us an online order form on our website. We may at our discretion accept or reject an order depending on a variety of factors, such as availability of the ordered products or our ability to validate payment for the products. You must not order products or services from us if you are under eighteen (18) years of age. We may, at our discretion, treat any order by a person under eighteen (18) years old as void.
1.2 Prices are subject to change
Please choose your products carefully. Prices can change and so you should check the latest price on our website or confirm the price with our sales team on the phone before placing your order. It is your responsibility to check the order (including all pricing and product information) before you complete the online checkout process or before you place your telephone order.
1.3 Order Reference number
We will let you have an “order reference number” via a confirmation email or over the phone once your checkout process or phone order is complete. However, if you are paying by Credit Card, Direct Deposit or Paypal, we will not complete your order until your payment has passed our internal validation procedures. Once your payment has been validated, we will process your order and let you have an order reference number. Please keep your order reference number safely.
1.4 Conditions of sale
Once we have given you an order reference number, a binding agreement will come into existence between you and us and only these Conditions of Sale will apply in relation to the supply of the ordered products. Subject to clause 1.1.2, no changes to these Conditions of Sale will be effective unless we both agree to the changes in writing. If you wish to cancel your order we ask that you advise us at least one (1) business day before your planned delivery date and you will receive a full refund subject to these Conditions of Sale.
2.1 Stock levels
We do our best to keep in stock most products that are advertised by us. All stock availability as represented on our website or by our sales or Customer Service Team is accurate in accordance with our current stock levels with each manufacturer, however, these stock levels are subject to change without notice.
2.2 Product not in stock
If, for any reason, we cannot supply a product you have ordered, we will let you know over the phone or contact you using the details provided by you at the checkout process to amend, cancel or put your order on backorder as agreed with you. If you choose to put your order on backorder, we will contact you to arrange for delivery once the product is available.
3.1 Correct Pricing
The price payable for a product is the one set out on our website or advised by us over the phone at the time you place your order. All prices are inclusive of GST. Subject to clause 1.9.6, we make every effort to ensure prices and product information on our website, catalogues or advertisements are correct and up-to-date. Prices for our products displayed on third party websites may not be correct and we are not bound by them.

3.4 Gift Vouchers
If you would like to redeem a gift voucher for payment or partial payment of your ordered products, you must enter the gift voucher details during the checkout process or inform our sales or Customer Service Team when placing your phone order. Products purchased with a gift voucher cannot be returned in exchange for cash. Use of a gift voucher is subject to our Gift Voucher Terms and Conditions.

If you have a promotional/discount/coupon code, you will be prompted to enter the code at the checkout and this will generate a discount from your cart value or add an incentive. To activate, simply enter a valid code then click the “Apply” button. All promotional codes have a unique set of terms and conditions automatically applied when issued and are only valid at our discretion. Promotional codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or discount. If you are unable to use a promotional code, please contact our Customer Service Team.
3.6 Tax Invoice
Your tax invoice will be sent to you via email at the completion of the order and payment process. Your tax invoice is your proof of purchase and may be required for any warranty claims.
