15.2 Acceptance of orders
We may limit quantities available for sale or sold, and we reserve the right at any time to reject, correct, cancel or terminate any order for any reason whatsoever. If the price of any product you order was incorrectly displayed on our Website, we will provide you with an opportunity to place an order at the correct price assuming such product is available. Advertisements on our Website are invitations to you to make offers to purchase products and services on the Website and are not offers to sell. Your properly completed and delivered order information constitutes your offer to purchase the products or services referenced in your order. Your order will be deemed to be accepted upon submission of your order and forms a legally binding contract with Yarnia, which operates yarnia.com.au. Our online purchase is subject to Shopify's own security. Yarnia is committed to ensuring the security of your personal information and we will take all reasonable precaution to protect this information from loss, misuse or alteration.

Orders that cannot be filled at the same time, i.e., preorder or backorder products, will be treated as separate orders. If an order cannot be filled because the product is not available for shipment, customer service will notify you and you will be given the option to change, cancel the order or wait for the missing stock to be shipped. If you wish to cancel an order, you may request a cancellation by calling 02 9875 2813. However, if we are not able to receive and process your cancellation request before we accept and ship your order, your cancellation request may not be effective. It is a requirement that all orders intended for delivery within Australia be placed from within Australia. If an order is placed outside of Australia or is placed using a credit card with a billing address outside of Australia then it is considered an overseas transaction. We retain the right to either approve or deny any overseas transaction at our discretion. All orders placed undergo an internal order verification process. During this process an order may be approved or denied at our discretion.
