In order to deliver and provide services you may require, we may need to disclose your personal information to a company or organisation outside of our company, for instance, a service agent when you request a repair of an item.

The layout, stylisation, and composition of the site are copyright 1999-2013 by Audio Connection Australia Pty. Ltd., all rights reserved. No portion of this Internet site may be reproduced in any form whatsoever, without the prior written consent of both Audio Connection Australia Pty. Ltd. and the respective originator of the material desired to be reproduced.
Trade Marks and Service Marks
Mention within this site is made on numerous occasions, to product and/or feature names which are trade marks and/or service marks of their respective developers and/or owners. The inclusion of these names within this site is made on the understanding that the developers’ and/or owners’ (of these names) rights are in no way modified nor diminished, and that recognition of the ownership of these names is given here rather than as a suffix to each occurrence of these names purely for reasons of technical limitations of HTML (that is, the lack of universally available symbols for the “TM” and “SM” marks), and not for any other reason.
Recommended Retail Prices
References are made throughout this site to “recommended retail prices,” which are prices recommended to us by manufacturers, importers, and/or distributors of the products. Whilst every effort has been made to assure the stated “recommended retail price” of each product is correct, it is impossible due to the size of this site for us to guarantee that these prices are exact at any one moment. Therefore, reference to these prices should only be used as a guide, and an aid in determining the relative pricing of products from a particular manufacturer, and between similar products from different manufacturers. It is not the intention of Audio Connection Australia Pty. Ltd. to provide “recommended retail prices” as a marketing aid in improving the virtues of our “discounted” pricing.
Product Information and Specifications
The product information and specifications provided on individual product pages within this site, are given for the information of visitors to the site, and are taken verbatim from marketing material provided to us by the manufacturers, importers, and/or distributors of these products. Whilst every care is taken in assuring there are no errors in the information provided, it should be noted that manufacturers’ specifications are always subject to change without notice, and we cannot guarantee that information on a specific product will be wholly and perfectly accurate. Typographical errors may also have found their way into the numerous pages comprising our site, further adding to the possibility that specific information may indeed be incorrect.
It is not Audio Connection Australia Pty. Ltd.’s policy nor intention to mislead visitors to this site; therefore, if you find any information within this site which you feel to be in error, or encounter typographical errors on any of the pages, we would greatly appreciate you taking the time to send us an e-mail message, specifying the page you were viewing and the error or omission you have found, so that we may rectify the problem expediently, thereby offering a more accurate site for everyone’s benefit.
The prices at which the products herein are offered for sale, are maintained for accuracy on an ongoing basis, and will always to the best of our knowledge be accurate and achievable for us. Situations outside of our scope of control may arise, however, which prevent us from being able to sell a particular product for a particular price – currency fluctuations, importer and/or distributor price rises, and other external influences may bring us into this situation. In such circumstances, customers are always notified of the price difference before any sale transaction is entered into, ensuring the customer is fully aware of the final price of a product, prior to making the purchase. Typographical errors are another factor beyond our immediate control, and may be the cause of us not being able to honour a particular price. These errors will, of course, be rectified immediately upon our identification thereof.
Whilst we endeavour to ensure the availability of all products depicted and/or offered through this site, there are a number of factors affecting such availability, which are well outside of our scope of control. There are numerous situations where manufacturers may have opted to discontinue a particular product, importers have decided to stop importing a particular product into the country, or distributors have temporarily run out of stock of a particular product. In these cases, we shall endeavour to find the product for you from an alternative source, or offer a comparable product for a comparable price, either from the same or another manufacturer.
