Any questions or concerns about these terms and conditions or any purchase for products or services made through the website should be directed to our team. We will always do our best to resolve any issues with sales or products to ensure a pleasant and customer focused experience.
While PPA endeavours to ensure the website and online store is accurate, pricing or stock errors may occur, as well as mechanical issues with printing equipment required to produce products in timeframes and at quantities required.
No agreement is formed until a payment is processed and your order accepted, which is indicated by your receipt of order confirmation. If an error has occurred prior to submission of your order, such as a stock or pricing error, PPA may chose not to fill the order. Any decision around this matter is not taken lightly and the PPA team will be in contact with you to discuss options. Options can include, but are not limited to, a request to resubmit an order, delaying an order, placing an order at the correct price, or providing a full refund. If an order cannot be filled and no other resolution can be found, a full refund will be provided as soon as possible.
You agree to pay PPA the price listed on the website. Prices will vary and you agree and acknowledge this can be done at any time with notice of such given by posting the new price on our website.
You acknowledge and agree that a condition of this agreement is conditional on payment in full in cleared funds and any breach of which entitles PPA to terminate this agreement. If your financial institution returns or denies your request for payment, or the purchase is unpaid by your for any other reason, you will be liable for any associated costs incurred by PPA such as, but not limited to, banking fees and charges. PPA may also stop delivery of any unpaid goods or provision of any unpaid services until payment is received in full.
If an insolvency event occurs in relation to you and you fail to pay for an order or services, we may suspend delivery for that order or service, require payment in a particular form or terminate this agreement.
Forms of payment accepted by the website are by credit card or Paypal.
By making a payment on the website, you indicate to PPA that you have read, understood and agreed to the terms of third-party payment service or credit provider which will be available on their own websites, and that these services are provided to you on the PPA website for convenience only. PPA is not responsible for any issues, loss or damage arising from these services. Any issues with these services should be directed to the owners of these services.
3. Discounts and Coupon Codes
PPA offers discounts or coupon codes in various situations. Discount and coupon codes cannot be used in conjunction with another offer, meaning only one promotion can be applied to a purchase, not both. This includes discounts or coupons of different types, such as discounted prices and free shipping vouchers.
Discounts and coupon codes;
can only be used once per customer, unless specified otherwise.
are non-transferable and cannot be redeemed for cash.
are only available on full-priced goods
are only available for the time stated, else for a period of 12 months.
PPA reserves the right to revoke any discount or coupon code at any time without notice.
At this stage digital products are not available through PPA. No .stl files are directly sold nor are other 3D design or print files. Ownership of any designs created in response to a custom order or alteration of an existing product, even if paid for, remains with PPA. No digital files are to be provided for these custom orders, unless expressly agreed upon by PPA in writing prior to the work being commenced and/or payment being made.
If a file is to be made available, it will be provided via email attachment. If file size prevents this method, these will be transferred through Google Onedrive, or if not practical our team will work to find an alternative online solution.
Any loss of files or failure to receive emails in each order is at the responsibility of the customer and all risk passes to you on delivery to your nominated email address.

Additionally injury or illness of key personnel and respective dependants. Some key risks that can impact PPAs ability to function effectively are extremely high and low temperatures impacting photosensitive resin qualities and COVID-19 lockdown orders preventing operation of ‘non essential’ services and related delays to importing of materials.
If any circumstances beyond PPA’s control prevent production or dispatch of your order, you agree to release us from any obligation to dispatch your order while those circumstances continue. PPA may chose to cancel your order while these circumstances continue, or continue work and delay completion of your order until those circumstances end. If any major delay is expected, we will contact you to discuss a mutually beneficial solution.
