These Terms apply to any and all purchases made by you from Giant via the Website. If you place an order with Giant it means you have read and expressly agree, consent to, and accept these Terms. You must be 18 years or older to make a purchase on this Website. These Terms apply to all sales of bicycles, clothing, and any and all other goods and products offered on this Website (collectively, “Products”). These Terms cannot be altered, other than in writing and signed by an Officer of Giant.

Giant reserves the right to change or modify these Terms at any time in its sole discretion.

Giant’s right to require strict observance and performance of each of these Terms shall not be reduced, vitiated, or otherwise affected by any current or past waiver of any of these Terms (or by any previous course of dealing).
ORDERS AND ACCEPTANCE
When you place an order on the Website, such order will not be deemed accepted by Giant unless and until an “Order Confirmation” acknowledgment is sent to you via email by Giant. Orders accepted by Giant may not be cancelled without Giant’s express written consent, which Giant may withhold in its sole discretion. All orders are subject to the availability of the ordered Product. Giant reserves the right to impose quantity limits on any order, to reject all or part of an order, and to discontinue products or services without notice, even if you have already placed your order. Also, even if an order has been accepted, Giant may subsequently cancel such order in whole or in part due to Product availability (including without limitation, any discontinuation of the Product), price change, if the incorrect Product price was displayed on this Website, or as otherwise determined by Giant in its sole discretion. You will be notified of any order cancellation and any amounts you have paid to Giant in respect of such order shall be refunded as set forth in the “Payment” paragraph of these Terms.
OUT OF STOCK/BACKORDER
Under rare circumstances, an item may become out of stock before we are able to ship out the order. We will always contact you prior to shipment if this happens and we will try our best to remedy the situation and will notify you of the date by which the item will become available. However, due to limitations we cannot accept back orders. If you wish to substitute an item you will need to contact us to arrange for a substitute or to cancel your order outright. If the item is not available we will cancel your order. If your payment has already been processed for the purchase when your order is cancelled, Giant will issue a credit to the payment method used in the amount of the charge. Individual bank policies will dictate when this amount is credited to your account. In the event that we are unable to contact you within 10 working days, the order will be deemed cancelled and any sums you have already paid to us in respect of the goods shall be refunded to you.
All orders must be paid in full prior to shipment. Giant accepts payment via MasterCard & Visa credit cards and debit cards. Payment information is submitted by you upon the placement of any order, and acceptance, fulfillment and shipping of the order by Giant is subject to verification of payment information and availability of funds. Only valid credit or debit cards acceptable to us may be used and all refunds will be credited to the same card used in the purchase. By submitting your order, you represent and warrant that you are authorised to use the designated credit or debit card and authorise us to charge your order (including Taxes, shipping, handling and any other amounts described on this Website) to that credit or debit card. If the credit or debit card cannot be verified, is invalid, or is not otherwise acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled automatically.
Unfortunately, we cannot work out credit card problems with your financial institution if a credit card is declined. It is your responsibility to settle credit card problems with the issuing institution, and then place the order again when the problem is resolved.
If a credit card authorisation fails, we reserve the right to cancel your order without notifying you.

- Products (Other Than Bicycles): Please return the product to the Authorised Giant retailer where you collected the goods from initially with your original proof of purchase. Any merchandise that shows signs of use (wear, dirt, smell, scuffing, mounting, installation, etc.) cannot be returned. This includes any items that have been “tested out”. Items for which the packaging has been destroyed are not returnable. Assuming the returned goods meet the outlined above, the retailer will notify Giant to begin the refund process.
- Bicycles Only: Bring your order, with original proof of purchase, to the local Authorised Giant retailer who assembled your bicycle. You may be eligible for a full refund of the purchase price so long as any such bicycle is like-new and undamaged. Bicycle(s) that show sign(s) of being ridden, including, but not limited to, dirty tires or grips, worn brake pads, scuffed crank arms may not be returned.
Unless otherwise noted, the refund will be for the full value of the returned items. Shipping fees if applicable will not be refunded.

Returns will be inspected by the authorised Giant retailer within 72 hours of receipt and depending on your credit card company it may take an additional 2-10 business days before a credit is processed to your card. Please note: the authorised Giant retailer cannot process the refund directly, it must be processed by Giant via the same online method as purchased.
With all warranty claims please take your bicycle or gear item back into your local authorised Giant retailer with your original “Order Confirmation” email as your proof of purchase.

No Giant warranty and nothing in these terms and conditions limits the consumer guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law in any way.
