Return Policy

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused, in the original packaging, and in a resellable condition. To arrange a return please email info@glowpear.com.au with your original order number and reason for the return. We will email you a return number along with details of where to send the returned item. Glowpear will not cover the cost of return shipping. 

In most cases, you may return any unopened, unused items within 30 days of receipt, and we will promptly give you a refund, less shipping and handling.  Items returned after 30 days may not qualify for a refund, or may incur an extra restocking fee.

Once your returned item is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. If the item is in an acceptable condition a credit will be applied to your original method of payment. Please note that the refund can take up to two weeks to appear on your statement.

Shipping costs (including all standard shipping costs incorporated into our pricing) are non-refundable. When returning an item, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We can't guarantee that we will receive your returned item and cannot refund returned orders which we don't receive.

Warranty

Glowpear’s warranty obligations for the product you have just purchased (the "Product") are limited to the terms set forth in these terms and conditions. 

Glowpear warrants the Product against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase ("Warranty Period") when the Product is purchased from glowpear.com.au or through an authorised reseller. If a defect arises and a valid claim is received by Glowpear within the Warranty Period, at its option, Glowpear will repair the Product or exchange the Product with a functionally equivalent new product. Glowpear warrants repaired Products and replacement products provided hereunder against defects in materials and workmanship from the date of the repair or replacement for ninety (90) days or, if longer, for the remainder of the Warranty Period. If the Product is exchanged, the replacement product becomes your property and the returned Product becomes Glowpear property. When a refund is given, the Product becomes Glowpear property.

Exclusions and Limitations

Glowpear’s limited warranty applies only to the Product when purchased from glowpear.com.au or through an authorised reseller.

When do we disclose personal information?

We do not share, sell, rent or trade personal information about you to, or with, third parties or affiliates, except as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Statement.

We may also share your personal information with third parties or affiliates in the event of an acquisition of our business or similar transaction, to enforce our legal rights or those of others, or if we are required to do so by law.

We may share information with governmental agencies or other third parties for purposes of prevention or investigation of fraud or other illegal activities. We may only do so when:

1.  permitted or required by law;

2.  necessary to prevent actual or potential fraud, unauthorized transactions, or other illegal activities; or

3.  investigating fraud incidents or other illegal activities.

How do we store personal information?

The personal information which we collect from you may be stored by us in various forms including both electronic and hardcopy. We take reasonable steps designed to maintain the security of any personal information which we have stored, including taking reasonable steps to prevent loss, misuse and unauthorised access, use, modification, disclosure, alteration, or destruction of such information.

Please be aware however that any online transmission of information over the Internet is never completely secure and may be prone to error or attacks by malicious third parties. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the security or accuracy of any personal information that you transmit to us through this Website.

Accessing the personal information which we have collected about you

1.  provided sufficient proof of identity, and

2.  in the case of unusual or particularly onerous requests, paid a reasonable access fee.

If the personal information which we have previously collected from you is out of date or incorrect, you can contact us at info@glowpear.com.au to arrange an amendment to our records.

Internet users: what are “cookies” and how do we use them?

A “cookie” is a small data file stored on your computer. We place a unique identifier in the cookie and use the cookie to connect your computer with the information we store for you in our database. Some examples of the data we store in our database includes your account preferences, items added to your shopping cart, user-specific information on pages accessed, and previous visits to our site. Your information is stored in a safe and secure database. We do not use cookies to store any of your personal or financial information on your computer.

How to report fraud

You can help us identify attempts at fraud. We will never ask you for sensitive personal information in an email. If you receive a suspicious email appearing to come from us, such as one requesting that you confirm personal information like your credit card number, or if you have received an email implying that it has been sent by us after you have opted out of receipt of emails from us, you may forward the suspicious email to us at info@glowpear.com.au. You should not respond directly to suspicious email nor should you open any link in the email.

There are a few common features of fraudulent emails that can help you identify them as spam. The two most frequent are:

1.  receiving an email that contains mistakes such as misspelled words or grammatical errors; and

2.  receiving an email that asks for your confidential information or asks you to take immediate action on your account.

We encourage all of our customers to protect themselves and their information. You should not share your account information with any third party and you should ensure that your system has adequate anti-virus and firewall installed.

Children's Privacy

We do not knowingly request or collect personal information from any person under 13 years of age without prior verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that an individual is under the age of 13 and has submitted any information to this Website for any purpose without prior verifiable parental consent, we will delete his or her information from our files.

You should be aware that Australia and other countries have not harmonised their privacy regulations.
