B.            ORDERS


Your receipt of an Order confirmation, in electronic or any other form, does not signify our acceptance of your Order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell Goods to you. Industrial Athlete reserves the right at any time after receipt of your Order to accept or decline your Order for any reason. Industrial Athlete reserves the right at any time after receipt of your Order, on written notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any Goods.

All Orders placed must obtain approval from our credit and fraud avoidance department and include payment details in the form or method required on our website at the time the Order is submitted. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any Order and we reserve the right to decline or refund an Order we suspect to be unauthorized or from an untrusted source.

6.            PRICING & PAYMENT

Prices on the website (Prices) are subject to change without notice to you. You agree to pay Industrial Athlete the Prices as quoted at the time of Order which will be charged to you after our credit and fraud avoidance department has approved your Order and your method of payment.

If there is a relevant promotion available, a promotional Price may also be quoted to you in addition to the recommended retail price or standard list price. Promotional Prices are valid only during the promotional period, and will not be applied to Orders outside the stated promotional period. The application of promotional Prices may be subject to further terms and conditions (see also clause 15 - “Promotions” for more details).

Prices quoted are in Australian Dollars.  You acknowledge and agree that all credit cards will be charged in Australian Dollars and that non-Australian currency figures are all approximations based on current exchange rates.

All Prices payable under these Terms are exclusive of any duties or taxes (including GST) that may be charged to you as required by the laws of Australia or any destination country of the Goods. You will be responsible for paying these duties or taxes either upon submission of your Order or delivery of the Goods to you and they will not be included in the total Price charged to you for your Order.

In the event that a product is listed on our website at an incorrect Price or with incorrect information due to typographical error or error in pricing or product information received from our suppliers, Industrial Athlete shall have the right to refuse or cancel any Orders placed for such products (including if such Orders have been confirmed or payment of the Price has been processed).

If your payment has already been processed and your Order is cancelled, Industrial Athlete will issue a credit to your account in the amount of the Order.


Orders to be delivered outside of Australia may incur a customs or import duty charge. Industrial Athlete does not have any control over these charges and is unable to advise what they will be, as it is based on the laws of the country of delivery. For further information, please contact your local customs office. All such charges are to be paid by the customer on delivery of Order. If you refuse to pay these charges, your parcel may be undeliverable and Industrial Athlete will not be held responsible for any resulting loss or damage incurred by you or any other person.


If notified before goods have been dispatched, Industrial Athlete may, but is not obligated to, accommodate Order cancellations. If items have been shipped, Industrial Athlete reserves the right to refuse Order cancellation or charge a reasonable cancellation fee should we be able to request the return of the package from our delivery service. Apart from the foregoing, an Order cannot be cancelled once placed by you.

9.            CHANGE OF ADDRESS

The shipping address for your Order is shown in the checkout and on your Order confirmation and shipping confirmation emails. In the event that an incorrect address was entered, address changes can only be made before the Order is shipped. Industrial Athlete cannot accommodate all address change requests. Industrial Athlete takes no responsibility for Orders shipped to an address provided by you that is incorrect or invalid and is not liable for any loss, cost, expense, or damage arising from an Order being shipped to such an address. 

10.          PRIVACY

Any personal information you provide to Industrial Athlete will be collected, used and stored for the purpose of providing information about our products or services, processing your Orders, communicating with you as a member of the Industrial Athlete customer community, or as otherwise stated at the point of collection or in our [privacy policy <insert link>].


C.            DELIVERY & RETURNS

11.          DELIVERY

The delivery times provided by Industrial Athlete are estimates only. You are not relieved of any obligation to accept delivery of or pay for Goods because of a delay in delivery.  Industrial Athlete will make all reasonable efforts to deliver the Goods to you at the time and on the date agreed as the delivery date, however, time is not of the essence under these Terms and, except where Industrial Athlete has an obligation under the Australian Consumer Law, Industrial Athlete is not liable for any failure to deliver or delay in delivery for any reason, including without limitation, where an event beyond our reasonable control occurs (including, without limitation as a result of any strike, trade dispute, fire, tempest, theft, breakdown, or similar). You agree that Industrial Athlete is not liable to you for any cost, expense, loss or damage arising out of such a delay in delivery or a failure in delivery.

12.          TITLE AND RISK

Risk in the Goods will pass you on delivery of the Goods unless otherwise agreed in writing.

Title in the Goods will remain with Industrial Athlete and pass to you only on payment of the Price, as well as all other amounts owing to Industrial Athlete by you, in full. You will hold the Goods (including where they have been converted or changed by any process) as bailee and agent for Industrial Athlete unless and until payment in full is received.

Until title to the Goods passes to you upon payment in full of all Prices owing to Industrial Athlete for all Goods supplied, you must:

(a)          subject to paragraph (b) below, store the Goods separately and in such a manner that they are safe, secure, insured, and clearly identifiable as the property of Industrial Athlete;

(b)          only sell the Goods, where onsale has been permitted by Industrial Athlete, in the ordinary course of your business (which does not include sale for less than cost or on conditions); and 

(c)           hold and agree to hold the proceeds of any sale, lease or other dealing of the Goods on trust for Industrial Athlete in a separate bank account with a bank over which the you have not given any security.

In addition to any rights Industrial Athlete may have under Chapter 4 of the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth) (“PPSA”), Industrial Athlete is entitled at any time until title in and to the Goods passes to you to demand the return of the Goods and shall be entitled without notice to you and without liability to you to enter, or cause Industrial Athlete’s agent to enter, any premises occupied by you (or any other premises where you are holding the Goods) in order to search for and remove the Goods. For that purpose, you irrevocably grant a license to Industrial Athlete to enter such premises (including via an agent) and indemnify Industrial Athlete from and against all loss, cost, damage, or claim suffered or incurred by Industrial Athlete as a result of exercising its rights under this “Title and Risk” section.

To the extent permitted by law, if there is any inconsistency between Industrial Athlete’s rights under this “Title and Risk” section and its rights under Chapter 4 of the PPSA, this “Title and Risk” section prevails.

You acknowledge and warrant that Industrial Athlete has and may perfect a registrable security interest in the Goods and any proceeds of the Goods until title passes to you. You agree to do any thing requested by Industrial Athlete or reasonably necessary to perfect and enforce Industrial Athlete’s security interest and waive any rights to receive notice of its registration or the exercise of Industrial Athlete’s rights in respect of that security interest.


Returns must be in as new condition with tags attached (unless faulty), and sent to the return address indicated on your Order or shipping confirmation. We recommend sending returns via registered post or courier as we do not accept responsibility for lost items.

We will happily exchange or refund your item for change of mind within 30 days of the shipment date, provided the item and its packaging are in the original condition with the original tags attached. Any Goods returned outside of this period or returned damaged or soiled (unless faulty) will not be replaced, refunded, or returned to you.

Where Goods are faulty, Industrial Athlete may (at its sole discretion): (i) refund the Price paid for the Goods (including a partial refund); (ii) replace the Goods; (iii) have the Goods repaired; or (iv) pay the cost of having the Goods replaced or repaired (see also clause 17 - Our Liability to You). Most repairs are carried out by the manufacturer and not by Industrial Athlete. Faulty Goods will be dealt with as per the manufacturer's warranty and terms, and otherwise in compliance with our obligations under the Australian Consumer Law. Please send a photo and description of your faulty product to prior to returning the item.

In some cases, faulty items cannot be repaired and a replacement, refund, or store credit will be offered (at our discretion). Industrial Athlete cannot control the availability of parts for replacement goods. Industrial Athlete has no control over manufacturer warranty periods, nor can we control manufacturer repair periods and cannot advise what they will be. We will, however, do everything we can to ensure your faulty item is handled as quickly as possible and that you are informed throughout the process. In cases where you have returned goods directly to the manufacturer, Industrial Athlete cannot be held accountable for repair periods or communication from the manufacturer. If the product is damaged or incorrect on delivery due to our error, your reasonable postage costs will be refunded.

Special return offers are personal and apply on an individual basis only. Products that are specially Ordered, non-stocked items, custom made, bulk quantity, or corporate special Orders cannot be exchanged/refunded. Gift cards, promo codes and promo prices cannot be applied to exchanges.

Due to health regulations, we are unable to exchange any underwear purchase.


The sale, possession, transportation, and use of knives are subject to local, state and federal laws. It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself and comply with all laws that might be applicable to your purchase, possession, transportation or use of the knives. If you are unsure, we recommend that you contact your local police for more information. We do not sell knives to anyone under the age of 18. By placing your Order with us, you are agreeing and representing to us that: (i) delivery of the Goods specified in your Order to the delivery address provided will comply with all applicable laws; (ii) you are over 18; and (iii) you will hold Industrial Athlete and its officers, directors, employees, suppliers, and contractors harmless from your failure to comply with these and all legal requirements.
