We may send a buyer an acknowledgement of receipt of an order, by email, or another medium (including telephone, fax or in person) as we see fit. Acknowledgement by email of receipt of your order is usually automatically generated and does not constitute an acceptance of the order. You should ensure that the information you submit to us in your order is accurate and complete to the best of your ability.

When your goods are ready to be shipped, the hold will be lifted and your card will be charged. If for any reason you decide to not complete your order with us, your order will be cancelled and the hold will be lifted.

We will provide this information to aid you, please note that we cannot be held responsible for this information provision, as these fees and charges have been created by local authorities and are outside of our business’ specialty field. They may be subject to change without notice.
Please note, that Expansys cannot artificially understate the value of an order, and will not refund delivery costs in either direction should goods need to be returned due to customer’s refusal to pay local fees and charges by their local authorities.

7.0 Pricing, Product Description and Availability
7.1 Whilst we endeavour to ensure the prices on our website are as accurate as possible, we reserve the right to change a price for ordered goods as we see fit. If a price for an ordered item is corrected due to exceptional or uncontrollable circumstance, customers will be informed of the change before payment is processed and offered the opportunity to cancel / amend their order to their preference. We may offer price reductions for promotional items from time to time at our discretion. Credits will not be offered for items that have been ordered before a promotional price has been launched, unless we deem this to be so.
7.2 Because of the dynamic nature of technology and markets (e.g. exchange rate variations and other variables beyond our control), prices, product versions, details and availability are subject to change on a continual basis without prior notice. Prices can and do change from day to day; if a price at the time of ordering is higher than a previously-shown price then the price at the time of ordering is the one that applies. If no promotion is evident, this may be primarily due to the fact that our company is a global organization and relies on global currency. Our parent company is Expansys PLC, based in UK. Our local site currencies are often pegged to our parent company’s dollar. As a result, pricing can fluctuate. If you have any questions, please Contact us
7.3 If an order is placed for an item with an erroneous price, and the erroneous price is less than the cost price of the item, we reserve the right to offer the opportunity for the customer to instead either receive the best-possible discount or to cancel the order.
7.4 Prices on orders for pre-release items are valid for one week after the order is placed. If the price changes when stock becomes available, customers will be informed of the change before payment is processed, and offered the opportunity to confirm or cancel their order, as per their preference.
7.5 EXPANSYS will honour requests for refund on the difference of price drops that occur within the same day of the original invoice date. Price drops beyond this date will not be matched.
7.6 Where stock availability for an item states a quantity "In Stock Now" then we have stock available in our Asia Pacific Hub (Hong Kong warehouse), to be allocated to confirmed valid orders in date priority. Where stock availability for an item states a quantity "In Stock" followed by the words "- x Days This product is at our central warehouse and should be shipped in x days" then the stock is available in an overseas Expansys warehouse, and the number of days is a fair estimate of when the item would arrive into our Hong Kong warehouse and be then shipped to you.
7.7 Stock availability on our website and order confirmations is generated by our system taking into account current stock levels, customer backorders, products already in transit from suppliers or from another Expansys warehouse, and information provided by suppliers for pending deliveries. Although as accurate as possible and generally reliable, they are estimates only which can be affected by many factors, especially unforeseen manufacturing delays or product discontinuations. Expansys offers these estimates in good faith but we cannot be held responsible should estimated and actual times vary, or if a product is discontinued or superseded by a manufacturer. If a buyer purchases an item that falls out of stock due to whatever reason, we will offer a solution in their best interests, including stock swap, or order cancellation, if the buyer does not want to wait for stock replenishment of the exact item ordered.
7.8 Descriptions and specifications of products shown on our website are taken directly from information supplied by manufacturers. Products are supplied as named and described. Where a product description is accompanied by an illustration of the packaging or product itself, that illustration is for illustrative purposes only and may not look absolutely identical to the product to be supplied; if the exact appearance of the product or packaging is essential to be identical then you should make that clear to us in writing at the time of order. This also applies if you don't want a barcode label on the packaging.
7.9 Because Expansys operates in many different countries, occasionally products may inadvertently appear on our Australian and New Zealand websites that we may be unable to sell here for technical, regulatory or commercial reasons. Appearance of these items is not intentional and we reserve the right to remove them without notice and/or decline any orders received for them.
8.1 We shall not be liable to you or any related party, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, for any business or personal loss including loss of profits (whether direct or indirect), data, revenue, goodwill, convenience, equipment/device/machinery/vehicle functionality, travel arrangements, third party claims or for any other incidental or consequential loss, that you may suffer as a result of the purchase, use or ordering of, goods from us. Any other liability shall be limited to the price paid for the goods. We do not exclude our liability for death or personal injury.
8.2 You will not export any goods purchased from us in contravention of your local government, or United States of America export controls.
9.0 Business and Government Customers
9.1 If you have a credit account with us payment is due 30 days after the date of our invoice and we may charge interest for late payment calculated daily at 4% above the local Bank base rate both before and after judgment. Collection costs if incurred are also chargeable.
