Terms and Conditions
The Magshop website (“Website”) makes it easy for you to purchase subscriptions to print and digital editions of magazines (“Magazines”) available through the Website (“Subscriptions”) and to purchase other products available through the Website (“Products”). In these terms, “Bauer”, "we", "us" and "our" means Bauer Media Pty Limited (ABN 18 053 273 546) of Level 8, 54 Park Street, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Please read these terms carefully as they apply to your purchase of Subscriptions and Products and your access to and use of the Website. By purchasing a Subscription or a Product or by accessing or using the Website, you agree to be bound by these terms.
We may revise these terms from time to time by updating this posting. The revised terms will take effect when they are posted.
1. By clicking "Pay Now" on the Website, you are agreeing to purchase a Subscription or a Product.
2. You instruct us to supply the contact information and order details you entered by you to the publisher of each Magazine for which you have requested a Subscription or the person offering the Product for sale (a “Vendor”), which may be us if we are the publisher of the relevant Magazine or if we are directly offering for sale the relevant Product (that is, not offering for sale the relevant Product as an agent for a third party).
3. Prices quoted are inclusive of delivery costs (but we are not responsible for any charges for internet access or mobile data network transmissions incurred in connection with any installation or download of a Subscription digital copy of a Magazine). 'Tip-ons' and gifts that may be available with non-subscriber copies of a Magazine may not be provided with print subscriber copies and will not be provided with digital editions.
4. If a Product offer includes the provision of a gift, then:
(a) if the Product is being purchased for a third-party, only you will receive the gift and the gift will be delivered to your address as provided to us;
(b) if that gift is unavailable, we, in our discretion, may substitute the gift with an alternative gift to an equivalent value or specification; and
(c) we are neither responsible nor liable for any damage caused to the gift in transit.
5. Any errors made by you in entering your contact information and order details are your responsibility and neither we nor any Vendor is liable for any consequences of such errors, including but not limited to failure to send any Subscription copies or Products to the correct address. If, in the case of a Subscription, you change address or any other relevant details, you must notify us.
6. All information about any Subscription or Product is provided by the Vendor and (except where we are the Vendor) we have no responsibility for the accuracy of that information and are not liable for any errors or omissions in that information. You agree that the Subscriptions and Products are offered by the Vendor, and that any Subscription contract or contract for the purchase of a Product is between you and the Vendor and that (except where we are the Vendor) we are not a party to that contract.
7. You may cancel a Subscription by emailing email@example.com detailing your name, order number, the Subscription to be cancelled and your reason for cancelling. We will endeavour to action the cancellation within 5 working days after receipt.
8. When you cancel a Subscription, we will (except where we are the Vendor) notify the Vendor and they will consider whether to provide you with a refund for the remainder of the Subscription. As your contract is with the Vendor, the decision to provide a refund rests with the Vendor. Where we are the Vendor, we will consider whether to provide you with a refund for the remainder of the Subscription. Any refunds will generally be paid to the credit card used to purchase the Subscription. If that credit card is no longer valid (eg, it has expired), a cheque payment will be issued. The cheque will be sent to the address nominated by you and may take up to 3 weeks to arrive. Please note, timing and methods for provision of refunds may vary according to each Vendor.
9. Delivery of the first Subscription copy (and any associated gift) may take up to 8 weeks from the date on which the relevant Subscription offer closes.
10. In no circumstances will you receive a refund for a Subscription copy received by you (whether in print or digital form). If you have any queries regarding delivery of Subscription copies or Products ordered by you, you should contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The Vendor is responsible for delivery of Subscription copies and Products ordered by you.
11. In order to purchase digital Magazines through the Website, or access purchased digital Magazines through the Website, you will need to establish an account. You will have the option to establish an account when you make a purchase on the Website. Don't reveal your password or other account information to anyone else, as you are responsible for all activities that occur through your account. If you're concerned that the security of your account has been compromised, contact us immediately on email@example.com.
12. If a digital Magazine becomes unavailable following a transaction but before you can download it, your sole remedy is a refund. If technical problems prevent or unreasonably delay delivery of your Magazine, your sole remedy is either replacement or a refund, at our discretion. This clause is subject to the terms relating to warranties and liability.
13. All digital content provided to you is for your private, non-commercial use only. You must not rent, lease, lend, sell, transfer or redistribute that content, or make it available over a network where it could be used by multiple users/devices at the same time. We do not guarantee that digital content will be available for more than one year after the date on which it is first made available. Accordingly, you may not be able to re-download digital content that you have purchased after one year from the date on which it was first made available. We (and any other Vendor) may, at any time, modify digital content that has already been made available. This may occur, for example, where there is a legal obligation to do so.
15. You consent to (a) the receipt of emails or SMS from us containing information and offers about products and services available through the Website in which you may have an interest, and (b) the receipt of emails or SMS from Vendors, containing information and offers about their products and services.
16. You declare that you are over 18 years of age, or if you are not 18 years of age, that you have parental consent to purchase the Subscription or Product.
17. These terms, as they relate to purchases of Subscriptions, do not apply to digital subscriptions or single digital editions of Magazines purchased through applications for Apple iOS devices (iPhones and iPads) or Android devices. For the terms applicable to those purchases, please refer to: (a) Apple App Store Terms of Sale and Terms and Conditions; and (b) Google Play Store Terms and Conditions.
