In 2016, Data#3 refreshed its Social Responsibility and Community Program, which increased emphasis on ‘Community’, and confirmed it as one of Data#3’s key stakeholders. Popular annual initiatives include Data#3’s Charity Golf Day, Christmas giving program and World’s Greatest Shave.
Through the program, much needed funds have been raised for our nominated charities. Data#3 also supports its employees to give back through volunteering opportunities throughout the year and a workplace-giving program.
To ensure prompt and accurate processing of your order, Data#3’s generic requirements include:
Purchase order number or reference number
Signed quotation from authorised customer representative
Delivery contact name or end user name
Delivery contact number
End user e-mail address
Total purchase price
Products requested to be purchased
Quantity of products requested to be purchased
Data#3 quote number reference
If a quote provides various procurement options, the option selected for purchase.
Data#3’s generic requirements for written acceptance by way of email and signed quotes must come directly from someone in a position of purchasing officer, manager or higher for Data#3 to process the transaction. If it’s not clear the requestor holds a position of this level, this must first be confirmed before proceeding with the order.
Please note that the above information sets out our typical requirements. These may change as part of specific contract obligations.
Data#3 can provide a regular order status report, which includes an ETA for your outstanding orders. If you have further questions please contact your sales support team or submit an ETA request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Estimated delivery dates are based on information available to us from suppliers and are subject to change at any time, without prior notice. We are not responsible for delays in delivery caused by a supplier or for other reasons beyond our reasonable control. We are not liable for any delays.
Data#3’s generic requirements state that the risk of loss or damage to goods will pass to the customer upon delivery of the goods to the customer or their authorised representative. This is the point in time that the customer should ensure they have insurance coverage in place.
It is therefore important that any discrepancy or potential damage is clearly noted on the consignment note by the recipient. It is recommended to confirm the following:
Does the box count match the consignment note?
Is there a box count on the consignment note, or did the courier ask to sign for 1 pallet?
Are you the correct recipient?
Is there any physical damage to the boxes including holes, dents, tampering or water damage?
Please note that the above information sets out our generic requirements. These may change as part of specific contract obligations.
Below are a couple things to remember when signing for damaged consignments:
Notate all claimed damages
Be specific (e.g. 5 boxes damaged, 1 box water damaged)
“Subject to Inspection” is NOT a valid notation. When in doubt, notate “Damaged.”
If you must, refuse the delivery. If there are cases where the courier will not let you sign or check for damages, refuse the delivery.
Report damaged delivery claims to your Data#3 sales support team with details and photos for investigation. Retain affected products including boxes in the same condition they were received, until advised otherwise.
Customer damage claims will be assessed.
If part of the shipment is missing, record the number of boxes received on the consignment note. Then also write down the number of missing boxes and note them as “short.”
For payment via Bank Transfer, contact your sales support team and they will assist you with your purchase. If you require Data#3’s payment details, contact Accounts_Receivable@data3.com.au.

Change or Cancel an Order
In some circumstances, Data#3 may be able to accommodate a change or cancellation request. If you need to request a cancellation, change or notice a mistake on an order, contact your Data#3 sales support team immediately. Charges may apply to cancellations or address changes. Acceptance of a customer request for cancellation or change remains in Data#3’s sole discretion.
In some circumstances, Data#3 hardware and software vendors may be able to accept a return or replacement request. When you have a request to return an item, contact the Data#3 sales support team with product and order details and the reason for the return request. The information will be assessed as to whether approval can be provided for the return/refund, in Data#3’s sole discretion.
See our typical return conditions for physical items:
All goods shall be in a new condition
Some vendors require that the boxes are unopened
All goods shall not have any labels, markings etc. on the original packaging
All product descriptions and serial numbers must match exactly
The total number of items to be collected (in box numbers) must match exactly (couriers will not collect where the box count does not match the request)
All goods shall be collected by an authorised Data#3 agent
Customers must retain the POC (proof of collection), along with the matching return request number. These numbers may be asked for by Data#3 to aid in the resolution of your return request (i.e. especially if goods are lost in transit etc.)
Customers must have goods ready for collection within agreed timeframes
Restocking fees of up to 50% of the goods value may apply in some returns
Exceptions to the above must be noted in the original return request, otherwise any approvals to return goods may be rendered invalid and credits not issued
The returns and refund policies of vendors vary and this will influence our ability to fulfil your request.
