Welcome to HelcatPTP.

In these terms, we also refer to HelcatPTP as “our”, “we, or “us”.

And you are you!

These terms apply when you use this website, being www.helcat.com.au/ (“Website”).  

These terms also apply when you purchase products through this Website (“Products”).

If you’re looking for our Privacy Policy, which we will comply with and you also agree to be bound by, you can find it here

 

 

How do I read these terms?

We separated these terms into three parts, so they are easy to read and understand.

Those parts are:

I’ve returned to your Website, do I need to read these terms again?

Once you place an Order, the terms of Part A accepted at the point of sale will apply to your purchase of those Products. However, please note that we may change any part of these terms at any time by updating this page of the Website, so you may find that different terms apply next time you use this Website or purchase Products.
