Third Party Seller Listings
The Blue Budha may allow third party sellers to list and sell their products on The Blue Budha.com.au (Site). The relevant seller is indicated on the respective product information page (“Third Party Seller”) following the product brand name.
While The Blue Budha helps facilitate transactions that are carried out on the Site, The Blue Budha is neither the buyer nor the seller of third party seller’s items. The Blue Budha provides a venue for Third Party Sellers and buyers to complete transactions. Accordingly, the contract formed at the completion of a sale for these third party products is solely between the buyer and Third Party Seller. The Blue Budha is not a party to that contract nor assumes any responsibility arising out of or in connection with it. The Third Party Seller is responsible for the sale of their products and for dealing with any issues arising out of or in connection with the contract between the Third Party Seller and the buyer.

Please keep in mind that Third Party Seller listings are merely hosted on The Blue Budha.com.au and are posted solely at the direction of Third Party Sellers.

The Site may accept product information from Third Party Sellers in good faith. Except where The Blue Budha is the seller, advertisements on the Site for products are prepared by Third Party Sellers who are not related to The Blue Budha. The Blue Budha takes no responsibility for the accuracy of price information or specifications of any products advertised and/or sold by Third Party Sellers.

To the extent permitted by Australian Law, The Blue Budha gives no warranty in relation to any products offered for sale by Third Party Sellers on the Site. Certain information on the Site may be uploaded by Third Party Sellers. The Blue Budha does not endorse or warrant the accuracy of this content nor does The Blue Budha accept any liability for inaccuracies or omissions in this content. Content and information on the Site relating to Goods offered for sale by Third Party Sellers do not imply The Blue Budha’s endorsement or liability in respect of such content.
