Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law.
You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage.
You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

Alinta offers 12-months’ warranty on all garments and bags that display manufacturing or fabric defects. Garments will be assessed by our Quality Control department and, if deemed to be faulty, Alinta will replace or repair the item, at its discretion, free of charge.
Your warranty may also be voided if Alinta reasonably considers the fault arises from:
· incorrect washing or drying methods, where care instructions have not been correctly followed;
· normal wear and tear, accident or mishandling.
Please note: Your warranty may be void if you make alterations or repairs to the garment before making a claim under this Policy.
The warranty period does not recommence upon replacement or repair of a faulty item.

Alinta offers a 6-month Lay-By Term at any of our on-campus retail stores and at our Adelaide Retail Store (limited to schools stocked in-store for retail). All items must be paid for in full and collected within this period. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer Lay-By for online-only stores.
A 20% deposit is required for each new
Lay-By. Lay-By Orders cannot be modified once placed.
We do not offer Lay-By on sale, discounted, discontinued (D) or (D)(O) products.
You are able to make unlimited payment instalments during your Lay-By term both online and in-store.
If you cancel a Lay-By within the 6-month term, fail
to make payments when they are due or fail to collect your Lay-By by the due
date, Alinta will refund you all amounts paid. Alinta will attempt to
contact any customer with an outstanding Lay-By at the end of the 6-month term,
however it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure their Lay-By is up
to date in the event Alinta is unable to contact them.
If a Lay-By is cancelled by virtue of the circumstances set out above, Alinta will not be responsible for any stock unavailability if the customer wishes to place a new order for the items not realised.
