Once you have placed your order, Hair By Science will send to you an email acknowledgement providing you with the details and value of your order, which has been debited to your credit or debit card.

Unless Hair By Science has notified you that it does not accept your order or if you have cancelled your order, the acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between you and Hair By Science will take place when Hair By Science dispatches the goods ordered by you.

All credit and debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses or does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us, whether in advance or subsequent to a payment, Hair By Science will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

Your Credit Card Verification number (CCV) is requested during the processing of your payment online.  This number is only found on the physical card, not on any receipts or imprints from EFTPOS machines. Although this does not guarantee that the card used for the purchase has not been stolen, it does assure us that the person placing the order has the card physically with them at the time of the order, and is therefore an additional security measure.

If your order is cancelled, you will receive an email to explain the reason for the cancellation and the appropriate amount will be refunded via your original payment method.

Please note that because Hair By Science generally dispatches orders within 2-4 days (excluding weekends and public holidays), it may not be possible to cancel the order prior to its dispatch. In this event, you will have to return your order once you have received it in accordance with the Returns Policy.

You will need to have a photo of your hair growth after finishing 90 days of treatment. The photo will need to be analysed by one of our doctors and if he or she is satisfied that the treatment has not improved your hair loss condition then you are entitled to a full refund. The photos need to be clear and broad enough to allow our doctors to analyse them effectively. You will need to prove that you have undergone the treatment as per the doctor’s instructions.

Credit Card Charge Back Policy

At Hair By Science Pty Ltd we do not tolerate credit card fraud. No expense will be spared and all fraud without exception will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. In addition, we will pursue civil legal action seeking any loss of income related to the fraud, including business, legal fees, research costs, employee down time and loss of revenues.

Hair By Science Pty Ltd also considers credit card charge backs to be fraud if you made no reasonable effort to notify us that a problem existed and allow us considerable time to resolve or clarify the or matter.

All frivolous charge backs not only costs our employees time away from our usual and customary matters of conducting normal business, but costs us money, therefore:

YOU AGREE that if you choose to do business with Hair By Science Pty Ltd and file a dispute/claim or charge back with your credit card company for a situation that contradicts our terms & conditions which you agree to when placing your order OR have not allotted us sufficient time to acknowledge, confirm, and research the situation; and as of any result, you do not win the charge back argument or dispute/claim you agree to pay us $200.00 for our time responding to the matter. You authorize us to charge this amount to your credit card. If this charge is rejected, Hair By Science Pty Ltd will peruse legal action to recoup losses for our time associated with responding to the charge back and or dispute/claim in addition to any other fees explained below.

In the event that you win the charge back with your credit card company, and have not returned our products in as new condition, Hair By Science Pty Ltd will attempt to recover fraudulently disputed charges plus additional costs via a third-party collection agency and your account will be reported to all credit bureaus as a delinquent collection account. This may severely damage your credit rating for at least the next seven (7) years. At this point, we will no longer accept a return of the products as settlement of the debt and will only accept payment in full.

Note: The customer must return the products, and must not have use them, before attempting a chargeback.

CEASE AND DESIST

Patient understands and is hereby notified that once a chargeback, dispute/claim or legal action is taken; all communication where it be via email, telephone, internet, or Australian mail and courier services with Hair By Science Pty Ltd will cease and desist.

RIGHT TO REFUSE A Patient

As a side note, management reserves the right to cancel an order and/or issue a refund, and pursue legal action against any customer who is deemed hostile. Hostile customers are those who initiate charge backs or dispute/claims without valid cause (particularly after the receipt of order), threaten/harass staff members in person, over the phone, internet, or email, and those who attempt to slander and/or commits acts of libel against Hair By Science Pty Ltd. and all divisions there under.

We are not interested in legal battles, but we are prepared to take them on when necessary.

You agree to reimburse us or any representative we may appoint for any legal expenses your actions may make us incur. We take fraud seriously. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. The waiver of a breach hereunder does not waive any other or subsequent breach.
