PART I   – LIMITED WARRANTY

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

If you order one of our products in Australia, you have legal rights known as ‘consumer guarantees’ which apply for a reasonable time from the date of your purchase until the failure becomes apparent and regardless of the manufacturer warranty as provided in this policy. The manufacturer warranty herein applies in addition to the rights you have at law and are not intended to limit, modify or restrict your consumer guarantee rights in any way.

 

What is Covered

XAG Australia warrants that each hardware product that you purchase is free from materials and workmanship defects under normal use and conditions during the warranty period. If the product fails due to a covered defect during the warranty period, XAG AUSTRALIA will provide you with a remedy under this policy. The warranty period for the product starts on the original date of purchase specified on your sales receipt or invoice unless XAG Australia informs you otherwise in writing. The warranty period and types of after-sales service that apply to your product are set forth below in “Part II – General Terms”.

The benefits given by this Limited Warranty are in addition to your rights and remedies at law, including those under the Australian Consumer Law.

 

How to Obtain Warranty Service

If a product does not function as warranted during the warranty period, you may obtain after-sales service by contacting XAG Australia’s Technical Department. You will need to provide a valid proof of purchase, receipt or Invoice number for the warranty service.

Charges may apply for services not covered by this Limited Warranty. Please contact XAG AUSTRALIA for information specific to your location.

Please note that the warranty service is only available in the respective XAG service regions where you purchased your XAG product.

 

What Will XAG AUSTRALIA Do

XAG Australia will attempt to diagnose and resolve your problem by telephone, e-mail or online chat. XAG Australia may direct you to download and install particular software updates.

If your problem cannot be resolved over the telephone or through the application of software updates, you may be required to deliver the product to XAG Australia for further examination. XAG Australia will arrange for repair or replacement service at no cost if the problem falls under this Limited Warranty.

Only unaltered XAG products and parts are eligible for replacement. Products and parts presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished products or parts of the same type rather than being repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair the product, and repair of the product may result in loss of data if the product is capable of retaining user-generated data. The replacement product or part provided by XAG may not be new, but it will be in good working order and at least functionally equivalent to the original product or part. A replacement product or part shall be covered for the time remaining in the original product or part’s warranty.

 

Use of Personal Contact Information and Data

XAG Australia will not be able to provide you with our service under this policy if you refuse to provide your information or do not wish us to transfer your information to our agent or contractor. You have the right to access your personal contact information and request correction of any errors in it pursuant to the Privacy Act 1988 by contacting XAG.
