5. In the event that you buy any goods or services using our Website you will be bound by such terms as are notified by us to you on the materials that you will be sent once you have confirmed your order as indicated on the Website.
In the absence of any additional materials being sent by us to you, the terms will be as specified within these terms and conditions or those specified on the Website itself concerning the price of the goods, the methods of acceptable payment and the timing of such payments, and the requirement by you to pay such additional carriage and freight charges as may be specified on the Website.
We have no responsibility to supply to you any goods or services as may be advertised for sale or supply on our Website. When you place the order for goods or services, you are making a legal offer to us, which we may or may not decide to accept. A legally binding contract will exist between us when you receive written confirmation from us (by e-mail or otherwise) that confirms your order.
In the event of any discrepancy between the terms and conditions specified or highlighted on the Website, and these terms and conditions, and or such terms and conditions as are specified in the materials the prevailing terms will be those most favourable to us.


Subscribers will receive their first magazine from the first publication date after their subscription is processed, unless otherwise requested by the subscriber (who can nominate the starting issue). In case where subscribers require a current issue this will be mailed within one week (5 working days) from the time of their subscription.

9. No terms agreed between us will be varied unless such a variation has been agreed by us in writing. However, we reserve the right to supply to you goods that are not exactly those you ordered, but are of an equivalent type and quality, at the same or less price than those you ordered. If you are supplied with goods at a lesser price than those you ordered and paid for, we will reimburse you with the difference.

10. You may return such goods as are supplied by us to you provided: you return the goods to us within 7 days of receipt by you; the goods are returned in their original packaging; the goods are returned at your expense to the return address specified on the materials that accompanied the goods; the goods are in no worse a condition than when they were supplied to you by us; the goods are not of a type specified, or are supplied in circumstances as being, “non-returnable”. If these conditions are met we will refund you for the amount you originally paid for the goods within 30 days from the date we receive the goods back from you.

11. You may cancel an order for the supply of services by us to you within 7 days from the day you made payment provided we have not incurred any identifiable costs as a result of your order and the nature of the services intended to be supplied are not of a type specified by us or by law, as being exempt from cancellation. If these conditions are met we will refund you the amount you originally paid for the supply of the services within 30 days from the date we received notice of cancellation.


If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your Rhythms magazine, you may claim a full refund of your subscription, by contacting us prior to the magazine cutoff dates posted on www.rhythms.com.au, or within 1 week of your transaction processing date, whichever comes first.

Cancelling Subscriptions after the Cut Off Dates:

You may cancel your Subscription at any time during your subscription term. If you choose to cancel your Subscription, please note that we do not issue refunds on magazines already delivered (except where required by law).

You may request a refund for all magazines not yet delivered, by contacting us at subscriber@rhythms.com.au. The amount to be refunded will be a pro rata value based on the number of magazines already issued.

Money will be refunded into the account of the original purchaser.

If an error in processing was made on our part, or due to a technical error for online subscriptions, the full value of any non-delivered magazines will be refunded in full.

12. In the following circumstances goods shall be treated as being “non-returnable”: where the price of the goods was dependant on fluctuations in the financial market outside of our control; where the goods have been at your request personalised; where the goods by their nature cannot be returned or are likely to deteriorate or expire rapidly (e.g. perishable food); all audio or video recordings or devices or computer software if the seal has been broken or tampered with in any way.

13. The order from you to us for the supply of services cannot be cancelled in the following circumstances: where the price of the supply of the service was dependant on fluctuations in the financial market outside of our control; where the order from you to us was for gaming, betting or lottery services; where the request for the service required us to incur costs at your request prior to the cancellation period (in which case you will only be refunded for only the difference between the costs we incurred and the payment made by you to us for service); where the supply of the service was for a particular service on a specific date or within a specified period.

14. You will own the goods once they have been paid for and sent by us to you, and you will therefore be responsible for all risks of whatever nature that arise once the goods have been dispatched in good order by us to you. You may take out adequate insurance cover for such eventualities if you see fit to do so.

15. This agreement is between you and us and not any third party, and this agreement is not intended to confer any rights of any nature upon any party other than you and us and our legal associates.
