SMS Service

We offer an integrated SMS system for use within Nookal that is an automated appointment reminder and sender of SMS messages. We use a credit based system for sending SMS messages – each message is charged at a predetermined amount monthly and may change at any time without notice. We cover all of the Australian network operators, but the cost of sending is dependent on the network operators in the particular region.

1 credit will generally = 1 message, however some destinations may charge less than 1 credit and some may charge 2 or more credits per message. A set-up fee of $10.00 + GST (once off payment) is required to activate your account. Please note that all prices are exclusive of VAT. SMS charges are not included during a free trial or demonstration period, and will be charged to you during or at the conclusion of your trial or demonstration.

You agree that Nookal Pty Ltd will not be held responsible for any repercussions for SMS messages not sent or not received and for any misuse of the SMS services offered, which may be interpreted as spam or unwanted electronic material.

SMS message delivery is not guaranteed by any network operator, and there is no method through which we can determine whether an SMS message has been delivered to the recipient’s handset. Around 1% to 5% of messages are lost in transmission during normal operating conditions, and some may be delivered late, or not at all.

Claiming Service

We offer an integrated Medicare and DVA (Department of Veteran’s Affairs) online claiming system for use within Nookal that sends claims to Medicare and DVA within Australia for processing. We use a credit based system for sending claims – each claim marked as “completed” is charged at a predetermined amount and may change at any time without notice.

You agree that Nookal Pty Ltd will not be held responsible for any repercussions for claims not sent or not received and for any misuse of the claiming services offered.

Claims marked as “completed” do not guarantee that the claimed amount was paid to the recipient, and there is no method through which we can determine whether the claimed amount was paid to the recipient.

Service Credits

Unused service credits for services including but not limited to SMS and Online Claiming will expire 12 months after purchase. Nookal Pty Ltd enforces a strict no refund policy for unused service credits for services including but not limited to SMS and Online Claiming.

Charges and Payment

You must pay any charges on your Nookal account in full and without any set-off or deduction by the date shown on the invoice.

If you supply your credit card or direct debit details to us, we may debit that account for all charges under this agreement until you notify us otherwise in writing.

If you do not pay any amount due to us under this agreement by the due date, we may terminate, restrict or suspend your account and all other services in your name; use an external agency to recover the debt; charge you a late payment fee; charge you a disconnection fee if we terminate, restrict or suspend the service; and add our collection costs to the amount that you owe us.

If we terminate, restrict or suspend the service for any reason, we reserve the right not to reinstate the service until you have paid all amounts outstanding on all your accounts. We may also charge a fee for reinstating your service. This fee is in addition to any late payment fees and disconnection fees. We may report any payment default to a credit reporting Agency. We will endeavour to bill you promptly. However, due to circumstances outside of our control it is not always possible for us to include all charges for a particular billing period on the bill for that period. Some charges may appear on a later bill. In some cases, we may bill you for earlier charges after the service has been terminated.

Refund Policy

Nookal Pty Ltd enforces a strict no refund policy after the expiration of the initial free trial or demonstration period. Nookal Pty Ltd enforces a strict no refund policy for unused service credits for services including but not limited to SMS and Online Claiming.
