Dronesforhire.com.au (“DFH”) Warranty Terms and Conditions
The warranties set out in these Terms and Conditions are provided by Drones For Hire irrespective of:
a. the identity of the manufacturer of the Product;
b. whether or not the manufacturer has provided its own warranties or product support in relation to the Product.
For the avoidance of doubt we make no representations or warranty in relation to the existence, non-existence, validity, availability, terms or conditions of any other warranties or product support that may or may not be offered or provided by the manufacturer of the Product.
Subject to the terms and conditions set out below, DFH agree to repair or replace the product which it supplied to you at its own cost or provide you with a refund if the Product is found to be defective and not able to perform in accordance with our specifications for 12 months, commencing on the date of delivery of the Product. Where there is no proof of delivery, this date will be assumed to be 3 business days from the date of dispatch of the Product.
When requesting service under the DFH Warranty, proof of purchase (invoice or paid Order confirmation) must be provided and every effort must be made to return any accessories such as connectivity cables, remote controls, battery chargers, and power cables, that were sold with the Product.
When requesting service under the DFH Warranty you must comply with directions from our staff in relation to troubleshooting any issue and facilitating any repair or replacement.
You are responsible for inspecting the Product received from DFH upon arrival. Where Products are faulty or damaged upon delivery, photographic evidence of the damage must be submitted to DFH via [email protected]
within 3 days of receipt of the Product otherwise DFH can deny your claim.
Where DFH has an obligation to repair a Product, we reserve the right to replace the Product with the same or equivalent Product, rather than repair it.
Where we provide a replacement we will determine, in our discretion, the closest Product within the then current range of Products offered by us with which to replace the faulty or damaged Product. The replacement Product may differ with the replaced Product in size and specifications, at our reasonable election. We may replace parts with refurbished parts. Replacement of the Product or a part under the DFH Warranty does not extend or restart the DFH Warranty.
Where we have an obligation to repair or replace the Product but we are not reasonably able to do so, we will offer a store credit or a refund of the purchase price of the Product excluding the cost of delivering the Product (‘Delivery Cost’).
In the event that a replacement or refund, is provided, the faulty item will become the property of DFH.
Subject to clause 12, where we authorise the repair of replacement of a Product, we will organise for our authorised courier to pick up the Product during business hours (between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday) and deliver it to the appropriate authorised repair centre, provided that the Product is safely and securely packaged for safe transport. If we deem it appropriate, we may alternatively supply a pre-paid postage label for the Product to be returned via our chosen carrier to the authorised repair centre. In either instance it will be at our cost. Alternatively, if we specifically authorise you in writing, you may take the Product to the appropriate repair centre or post the Product as directed by us in which case we will refund you the cost of the postage on provision of a scanned copy of the postage receipt. Where you are located outside Australia, we may require that the Product be sent overseas or to Australia, as directed by us.
If you do not have the original packaging, you will bear the responsibility for safely packaging your Product for transport and we accept no liability for any damage that may occur in transit. If your Product was exclusively available for shipping to Sydney and Melbourne metro areas only, we will collect and return the Product from these areas only.
We reserve the right to determine the repair centre.
The Product will be at the Customer's risk while in transit to and from the DFH authorised Repair Centre.
We may seek reimbursement of any costs we incurred where the Product is found to be in good working order, or when it has been determined that the DFH Warranty (as the case may be) does not apply.
We will reasonably determine whether any Product is or is not performing in accordance with the DFH’s specifications.
Extended Care is available for purchase for some Products, as listed on the Website and may be purchased up to 14 days after delivery of Your Products.
To the full extent permitted by law, the DFH Warranty will not apply:
to a Product which has not been installed, operated, maintained or used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions or specifications provided with the Product;
if the factory-applied serial number has been altered or removed from the Product;
to a Product which has suffered damage, malfunction or failure resulting from any unauthorised alterations or modifications (of hardware or software), accident, misuse, abuse, fire, liquid spillage, mis-adjustment of customer controls, use on an incorrect voltage, power surges and dips, thunderstorm activity, force majeure, voltage supply problems, tampering or unauthorised repairs or service, use with other defective or incompatible accessories or products, the operation of a computer virus of any kind, exposure to abnormally corrosive conditions or entry by any insect, vermin or foreign object in the Product;
to a Product which has been primarily used in a business or commercial capacity and DFH has not explicitly advised, prior to purchase, as to the product’s suitability for that purpose;
to cosmetic damage to boxes, packaging or exterior surfaces (including during transit);
to defects caused by normal wear and tear or otherwise due to the normal ageing of the Product;
to damage arising during transportation, installation or while moving the Product,
if the Product is stolen or we reasonably believe that the Product is stolen based on information provided by law enforcement authorities;
where proof of purchase (invoice or paid Order confirmation) cannot be provided;
to service and support of any software operating system or application installed on any Product, except to assist in restoring the Product to its factory default settings or;
to service of any product whilst it is outside Australia.
To the full extent permitted by law:
DFH will not be liable for any loss, damage or alterations to third party hardware, software, programs, data and/or information stored on any media or any part of the Product, no matter how occurring; or for any loss or damage arising from loss of use, loss of profits or revenue, or for any resulting indirect or consequential loss or damage; and
our aggregate liability in respect of all claims under the DFH Warranty shall not exceed the original purchase price of the Product or, at DFH's option, replacement of the Product with a like or similar Product.
