Terms & Conditions of Sale
Welcome to the Hero Labs online store (the “Store”), provided by Hero Laboratories Limited (“Hero Labs”). In purchasing any Hero Labs products (“Products”) from the Store, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions of Sale (“Terms & Conditions”) and any additional terms we provide, including but not limited to our Privacy Notice and our Terms and Conditions of Service. If you do not agree with any of the provisions of these Terms and Conditions, you should not purchase the Products.
We reserve the right to change these Terms & Conditions at any time, so please review the Terms & Conditions each time before making a purchase from the Store. Every time you order Products from Hero Labs, the Terms & Conditions in force at that time will apply between you and Hero Labs. If you have any questions regarding these Terms & Conditions, you can contact us at [email protected].
You may have certain legal rights in accordance with the laws applicable in your country or jurisdiction. The disclaimers, exclusions and limitations of liability under these Terms & Conditions apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law. For a full description of your legal rights, you should refer to the laws applicable in your country or jurisdiction. Nothing in these Terms & Conditions will affect those other legal rights.
Although the Store is available worldwide, the Products in the Store are not designed and tested for use in all countries. If you choose to access the Store and / or use the Products outside of the countries in which they are designed and tested for use (the “Approved Countries”), you do so at your own initiative and are solely responsible for complying with all applicable local laws in your country. If you use the products outside of the Approved Countries, you understand and accept that not all features may work correctly or be appropriate for use in your country. Hero Labs accepts no responsibility or liability for any damage or loss resulting from use of Products outside the Approved Countries.
We recommend that all Hero Labs Products are installed by an accredited professional in a relevant field of expertise (a “Professional”). For example, we recommend that the Sonic Leak Prevention System is installed by an accredited plumber. In purchasing the Products you acknowledge that you have verified the compatibility of the Products you are purchasing with other equipment in your home (e.g., verifying that you have access to a suitable installation site for the Products, and that installing the Product will not interfere with the operation of other systems such as fire-suppression sprinkler systems). Further information is included in the Safety and Warranty Information. Hero Labs is not responsible for determining the compatibility of the Products with other equipment in the home and you accept that lack of compatibility is not a valid claim under the warranty provided with the Products.
2. Orders and Pre-Orders
The Store may allow you to place an order for an existing product (“Stock Order”) and / or place pre-orders for forthcoming products (“Pre-Order”). Collectively, all Stock Orders and Pre-Orders are “Orders”. Your placement of an Order does not create a contract for sale but is an offer to Hero Labs to purchase the Product subject to these Terms & Conditions. Hero Labs may accept your offer to purchase Products subject to these Terms & Conditions and capture payment on the payment card you provided. Stock Orders require payment of the Order balance in full at the time of purchase. Pre-Orders may require payment of the Pre-Order balance in full, or may be subject to an initial payment (“Deposit”) followed by payment of the Pre-Order balance less the Deposit at a later date, but no later than the date on which the Pre-Order is shipped. Hero Labs may obtain additional authorisation from your payment card company to confirm the necessary funds are available to complete payment of the Order balance.
Hero Labs reserves the right to cancel or refuse any order for any reason at any time prior to shipment, including after an Order has been submitted, whether or not the Order has been confirmed. We may attempt to contact you if all or a portion of your order is cancelled or if additional information is needed to complete and accept your order.
By providing a credit card or other payment method accepted by Hero Labs, you represent and warrant that you are authorised to use the designated payment method and that you authorise us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your order (including any applicable taxes and other charges). If the payment method you provide cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled.
4. Availability and Pricing.
All Products offered on the Store are subject to availability and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, to reject all or part of an order and to discontinue offering certain Products without prior notice. Prices for the Products are subject to change at any time, but these changes will not affect any order for Products you have already placed.
In placing a Pre-Order, you understand and agree that the Pre-Order represents an offer to purchase forthcoming Products at such as time as they become available. Hero Labs will endeavour to provide good faith estimates as to when forthcoming Products are likely to become available, but reserves the right to adjust such estimates at our sole discretion, e.g. to ensure the quality of Products provided. Such estimates will be provided on the Store from time-to-time, such as on the Product listing, or via email or phone using the details you provided in placing your Order. In placing an Order, you consent to receive such communications and other relevant news. You can unsubscribe from such communications at any time using the unsubscribe link in each email or by emailing [email protected]
5. Sales Tax (also known as VAT).
Depending on the order, Hero Labs calculates and charges sales tax in accordance with the applicable laws.
6. Title Transfer.
Title for Products purchased from the Store passes to the purchaser at the time of delivery by Hero Labs to the freight carrier but Hero Labs and/or the freight carrier will be responsible for any Product loss or damage that occurs when the Product is in transit to you.
7. Shipping and Delivery.
Prices for the Products may not include shipping costs which are calculated at checkout. Our delivery charges and methods are as described on the Store website from time to time.

It may take up to 45 days for the returned items to be identified as refused and processed for a refund (although this does not affect your rights under paragraph 9 below).
Hero Labs recommends that the Products are always installed by a Professional. Your country or jurisdiction may have laws that govern where and how the Product should be installed. You should check you are in compliance with all relevant laws in your jurisdiction. Hero Labs is not responsible for any injury or damage caused by your installation.
