ReturnsAll retail Website hosted by Rocketspark must have a returns policy.
Returns policies vary significantly from one retailer to the next and can be vastly different across industries. Therefore, we have not provided you with a returns policy template and we recommend you create your own and we recommend you seek your own legal advice.
To create your own policy we recommend you consider the following elements:
- Applicable consumer laws in New Zealand including the Fair Trading Act 1986 and the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993. Check out: https://www.consumerprotection.govt.nz/general-help/ways-to-buy-and-pay/online-shopping/.It is important that you make sure that you do not mislead people about inalienable rights, including Consumer Guarantees Act rights for many consumers. You should not say "no refunds" because in some circumstances the law will require you to give a refund. The NZ Ministry of Consumer Affairs suggests the following wording about change of mind refunds:
- Will change of mind refunds be given?
- Do you allow exchanges where customers change their minds?
- What written warranty will you provide (i.e. in addition to Consumer Guarantees Act guarantees)?
"We do not have to provide a refund if you have changed your mind about a particular purchase, so please choose carefully. If the goods are faulty, we will meet our obligations under the Consumer Guarantees Act to provide a remedy."
Liability LimitationWhere you acquire or hold yourself out as acquiring goods or services from us for the purposes of a business, the provisions of the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 will not apply. The conditions, warranties and guarantees set out in the Sale of Goods Act 1908 or otherwise implied by statute or common law will not apply and are excluded from these terms of trade.

None of the persons specified above is liable or has to pay you for anything else in connection with or resulting from anything any of us does or does not do, or delays in doing, whether or not it is contemplated or authorised by any agreement you have with us. This exclusion applies whatever you are claiming for and in whatever way liability might arise. This exclusion does not limit any inalienable rights you may have under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993.
Our maximum liability to you (if any) shall be limited to the value of any faulty products or services supplied by us and we, our employees, contractors and agents, will not be liable to you for loss or damage of any kind however that loss or damage is caused or arises.
