Terms and Conditions

Sales

Ankalia wraps are available for sale worldwide. However the Belloborn Hybrid ring sling and half buckle conversions are only available for purchase in Australia. This is due to our converters insurance restrictions.

If you have won the right to purchase a wrap through any of our competitions, you must pay your invoice within 24 hours. Failure to pay will result in your wrap being reissued to another entrant. Failure to pay an invoice may also mean that you are ineligible for any future entries.

Change of Mind - Stockings. Please ensure that during stockings, in the online shop, that you do not purchase a size that you are unwilling to pay for. Due to the large volume of orders going through our platform, Ankalia will not make any changes to wrap sizes due to change of mind. This applies to both wrap size and shoulder type on ring slings where applicable. Also note that there is a re-stocking fee of 18% if you choose to cancel your online order or you can choose to have store credit with Ankalia Textiles.

Any item that has been altered in any way will not, under any circumstances, be accepted for return or exchange. The term “altered” is defined as including, without limit, dyeing, and fabric additions or removals made after purchase.

We reserve the right to refuse any order for whatever reason. We also reserve the right to cancel any purchase (an order already accepted by us) in (amongst others) the following situations, without being liable for any damage or costs: the product is not available/in stock (any payments will be refunded); your billing information is not correct or not verifiable; your order is flagged up by our security systems as an unusual order or an order susceptible to fraud; your bank transfer payment (Echeque) is not received within 12 calendar days after acceptance of your order; we have reason to believe that you are a reseller; there was an error in the price quote; we could not deliver to the address provided by you; or for any other reason.

Ankalia may also refuse purchases or participation in draws where the purchaser has engaged in behaviour that has caused administrative, financial or personal disruption to the company outside of expected activity. Disruptive activity includes attempting to purchase items on behalf of a person who has been refused purchase.

Preorders All pre-orders require a minimum of 40% deposit. These deposits are non-refunable given the nature of the custom order and the making of your carrier.

Colour

We try to provide our customers with photographs that most accurately display the colours of our wraps. However, due to the varying colours of computer monitors, we cannot ensure the accuracy of our images compared to the real product. Please contact us if you are unhappy with the colours of your wrap upon receipt of the product.

Whilst we make every effort to ensure that rails are sewn continuously and neatly, some minor cosmetic flaws may occur due to bobbin changes. We stress these cosmetic flaws are exactly that and will not affect the safety of your wrap.

Delivery

We shall deliver only to the address given when processing through checkout, regardless of any requests to deliver to an address different from the one given. For draw entries, we will only ship to the address on the account. This is to protect both us as suppliers, and you as customers. We aim to dispatch your product(s) within 5 business days of the receipt of payment. Tracking details will be emailed to you. All parcels are Sign on Delivery, and sent express through Australia Post and our international customers have their purchases sent through Pack and Send.

In accordance with the ACCC, Ankalia will not pay for damages or losses that:

  • are not caused by our business or the goods we supplied
  • relate to something independent of our business and outside our control, after the goods left our control.

Where an item is damaged or lost prior to delivery, Ankalia will initiate an investigation through the delivering party (e.g. Australia Post). Ankalia will take reasonable steps to ensure that any investigations are concluded promptly. Any reimbursements or substitutions for lost or damaged items will only be provided following the conclusion of an investigation undertaken by the delivering party. Where fault is found with the delivering party, Ankalia will pass on the full amount of any reimbursements.

Where fault is found with Ankalia, customers will be offered a repair (if possible). If repair is not an option, customers will be offered a replacement (if available). Where a replacement item is not available, financial reimbursement will be provided equal to the purchase price of the goods, together with initial delivery costs. In order to be provided one of these remedies for a damaged item, Ankalia requires the return of the item and will pay for return postage costs.

You are asked to examine your wrap as soon as reasonably possible after delivery. Should you find any defect in the quality or condition of the goods, you must cease use and contact us immediately. It is our responsibility to supply you with goods that meet your consumer rights. If you have any concerns that we have not met our legal obligations please contact us.

Cancellation by you. Lay-bys may be cancelled by you at any time during the term, in which case you will be entitled to a refund of the amount you have paid, less a termination fee of 20% (which is the initial deposit paid). Refunds for lay-by payments will be made using the original payment method only.

Cancellation for non-payment or non-collection. It is your responsibility to make the regular lay-by repayments by the due date. Failure to make payments when they are due will be treated as cancellation of the lay-by. Ankalia Textiles is not required to contact you before cancelling a lay-by for non-payment or non-collection.

A non refundable deposit of 50% is required to secure your wrap. Fortnightly repayments of a minimum of 25% of the full retail price must be met. All limited edition lay-bys must be completed 4 weeks after the initial deposit. Failure to complete lay-bys for limited edition items not in stock on the website will mean that we will not proceed with this option for further.

Security and Privacy

We utilise one of the most secure transaction channels available in the world today. Our Ecommerce application includes the following security features:

Ankalia Textiles uses Stripe as our credit card payment gateway, which ensures your credit card details are recorded in a highly secure encrypted environment.

Stripe is fully compliant with Level 1 PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), and their business is regularly audited by external auditors.

All browsers are required to use a minimum of 40-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology (This means that there is no way to bypass the security systems).

Stripe encrypts all transaction details before sending them across the internet, so the details of the message cannot be seen by anyone except Stripe Payment Server.

Each order is checked, one by one by our accounts department before processing. This reduces the possibility of credit card fraud.

Credit card details stored on Stripe, once entered, are hidden from view. Credit cards can therefore only be used within the Stripe environment.

What does this mean?

This means that when you order a product from our website, you can rest assured that very strong security checks have been put in place to make sure that your details will not fall into the wrong hands.
