- Defective Product
7.1 The Company warrants its products against defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of one year from date of shipment (the “Warranty Period“).

When a product is exchanged, any replacement item becomes the Customer’s property and the replaced item becomes the Company’s property. When a refund is given, the product for which the refund is provided must be returned to the Company and becomes the Company’s property. The Company will not accept liability for any cost in addition to the value of the product including but not limited to components, labour, business interruptions and any other consequential damages or losses.

7.3 Time shall be of the essence in respect of clause 7.2, and a failure to comply with clause 7.2 shall mean that the Company shall not be liable in any way to the Customer and the Customer will remain responsible for the price of the goods as if they had been delivered fully in accordance with the Contract.
7.4 This limited warranty does not apply: (a) to damage caused by use with non-Company products; (b) to damage caused by accident, abuse, misuse, flood, fire, earthquake or other external causes; (c) to damage caused by use of the product outside the permitted or intended uses described in the product specifications; (d) to damage caused by service (including upgrades and expansions) performed by anyone who is not a representative of the Company; (e) to a product or part that has been modified to alter functionality or capability without the written permission of the Company; or (f) to cosmetic damage, including but not limited to scratches or dents, that does not otherwise affect the product’s functionality or materially impair its use.

7.6 In the event that the Customer wishes to return a product for any reason, the Customer shall be responsible for paying the delivery costs of the return of the product to the Company.
