2. How the Agreement is Formed Between You and Sacred Earth Community
When you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement e-mail confirming receipt of your order. This email will only be an acknowledgement and will not constitute acceptance of your order. A formal and binding agreement between you and sacredearthmedicine.org will be formed when we send you confirmation by e-mail that the goods ordered have been dispatched to you. Only those goods listed in the confirmation e-mail sent at the time of dispatch will be included in the agreement formed.
When you make a service booking, you will receive an acknowledgement email confirming your booking. This will constitute acceptance of your booking and a formal agreement between you and sacredearthmedicine.org will be formed at this point. Only the booked service will be included in the agreement formed.
Both of the above agreements are covered by Australian law.
In the unlikely event that the goods are no longer available, or that we have made a pricing mistake, we will advise you of this. You will have the option of a full refund at this point and if accepted, you will not receive an e-mail confirming dispatch of your order, and there will be no agreement between us.
To order from sacredearthmedicine.org you must be over 18 years of age and possess a valid credit or debit card issued by a bank acceptable to us. sacredearthmedicine.org retains the right to refuse any request made by you. If your order is accepted we will inform you by email and we will confirm the identity of the party which you have made an agreement with - this will usually be sacredearthmedicine.org. In some cases, this may be a third party. Where a agreement is made with a third party, sacredearthmedicine.org is not acting as either agent or principal and the agreement is made between yourself and that third party and will be subject to the terms of sale which they supply you.
