    2. you will need to provide us with proof of purchase from Digistor and, if requested, proof of your identity;

    5. the goods should be complete with all accessories, manuals and, if possible, the original packaging;
    6. where goods are large or require special packaging, we will provide you, at our cost, suitable packing/shipping materials that you must use to return the goods to us, or we will collect the goods. We will pay for the collection of the goods, however you must promptly reimburse us for this cost if the goods are not defective or are not covered by our warranty, the manufacturer's warranty or the statutory guarantees;
    7. you should take good care when packing the goods to ensure that they are not likely to be damaged in transit to us;
    8. you must provide us with any help that we may reasonably request to help us diagnose (including by allowing us the ability to remotely connect to the goods and download any patches) or remedy a defect (including by installing user-installable parts), provide any replacement, arrange for collection or delivery, at no cost to us.

    Returning Good to You

    Where the goods are covered by our warranty, the manufacturer's warranty or the statutory guarantee, we will return the goods (or any replacement goods) to the same person and to the same address as they were received from, at our cost.

    Where the Fault is Not Covered by our Warranty

    If your issue is not covered by our warranty, the manufacturer's warranty or the statutory guarantee, then we may charge you our costs for diagnosing the issue and if we are able to provide a repair or a replacement, we will provide you with a pricing estimate for the repair or replacement (and any shipment, insurance and delivery costs). If you agree to the estimate, we will use our best efforts to provide the repair or replacement and ship the repaired/replacement item to you, within 10 business days (or such other period we inform you about) of the date you approved us to undertake the repair/replacement.

    If you do not agree to the estimate then you must either authorise us to keep and/or destroy the goods, or return it to you at your cost (and pay us the cost of returning the goods to you prior to us returning it to you).

    Your Costs

    You are responsible for any expenses you incur in using any of our warranty services, except where it is stated that we are paying the relevant costs. If you submit a claim for these expenses to us (including the original receipts or other acceptable proof of payment), and we have failed to meet any statutory guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law and as a result you are entitled to reimbursement of these costs, we will reimburse you for those costs.

    Other Returns

    You are only entitled to a refund, repair or replacement of the goods under the Australian Consumer Law or in accordance with our agreement. In particular, unless we have given you any representation to the contrary, you are not entitled to any refund, repair or replacement in any of the following circumstances:

    1. you have found the same or similar goods cheaper elsewhere;
    2. you have changed your mind as to whether you wanted the goods;
    3. you were aware of the relevant fault before buying the goods – such as if the fault was written on the packaging, or indicated in the photos or item description;
    4. if the goods were sold as being "second hand" or "demonstrator model" or similar, the nature of the fault is consistent with the goods of that nature (i.e. you can't expect a demonstrator model to be perfect and unused and you should expect that it would come with any faults that are typical of a good that is described as a demonstrator).
    If, in our absolute discretion and on an exceptional basis, we do allow the return of your order in circumstances where you are not entitled to a return, then we will charge you our then current re-stocking fee for the items on the order.

    Healthy and Safety Issues

    Due to health and safety regulations, Digistor does not accept returns of items such as headsets, ear pieces and headphones which have been opened and used, unless required to do so by law.

    User Generated Data Notice

    In accordance with Regulation 91 of the Australian Consumer Law, we give you notice that if we repair goods that are capable of retaining user-generated data, (e.g. computer hard drives, mobile phones, portable media players, games consoles, USB memory sticks), then we provide notice that the repair of the goods may result in the loss of the data.
