    YOUR RIGHTS AND GUARANTEES UNDER AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW

    The duration of your rights and guarantees under ACL vary greatly and depends on many factors such as, but not limited to: Value of the goods, type and nature of the goods, whether the goods are classed as low-end, mid-range, high-end.
    This is seperate from any warranties provided by the manufacturer and may be longer or shorter than the manufacturer warranty.
    Please understand the wording of ACL can be vague, subjective and open to interpretation. For any major disputes, a case may need to be raised to a tribunal or government department.
    No wording on our website is intended to subvert Australian law.

    Customers have the right to choose the type of remedy in the event that:
    - Goods are dead on arrival (within 7 days)
    - Goods have a 'major' fault or develop a 'major' fault within a 'reasonable' amount of time
    - Goods are not as described (must notify within a 'reasonable' amount of time)
    - Goods appear to be unsafe
    - Goods don't do what they are supposed to

    VTech Industries has the right to choose the type of remedy in the event that:
    - Goods have a 'minor' fault or develop a 'minor' fault within a 'reasonable' amount of time

    VTech Industries does not have to provide a remedy in the event that:
    - Customer changes his/her mind 
    - Customer accidentally purchased the wrong item
    - Customer purchased a product based on incorrect technical advice from anyone other than VTech Industries
    - Customer 'misused' the product in a way that caused a fault
    - Customer can't provide any type of proof of purchase
    - Customer has returned a product as faulty but has been confirmed not faulty by VTech Industries or Supplier or Manufacturer
    - Customer refuses to, or is unable to return the faulty item to us within a reasonable amount of time
    - Serial numbers used to identify the product are missing or have been removed
    - Any 'warranty void if removed/broken' or similar stickers have been broken/removed
    - The item is physically damaged

    A remedy can be in the form of a refund or replacement or repair or compensation for loss.

    Original box, packaging and accessories isn't required by law, but can help speed up the warranty process

    The customer is responsible for any costs involved in returning faulty goods, except where the costs are considered 'significant'.
    If paying via Paypal, any claims for re-imbursement of return postage must be done via Paypal's "Refunded Returns". The fees/surcharges we pay Paypal per transaction go towards policies like this.

    Please contact warranty@vtechindustries.com.au first to explain the fault and obtain an RA number before returning faulty goods.

    Repair/replacement is usually handled by the relevant importer/supplier or manufacturer.

    The terms 'major', 'minor', 'reasonable', 'significant' are broad terms outlined by the ACCC.

    If no fault is found with the product, the customer is responsible for paying any costs incurred in returning the product to them and a service fee may also apply.

    MANUFACTURER WARRANTIES

    Manufacturer warranties are separate from your rights under ACL and in no way affect your consumer guarantees.

    All manufacturers provide their own warranties on their products that cannot be excluded under ACL. In most cases this is at least 12 months.

    Some major manufacturers have service centres in Australia to deal directly with end-users, and in most cases will provide a much faster turn-around times than dealing with the reseller.

    Any warranty periods stated on our product names or descriptions are manufacturer warranty periods.

     

    BUYERS REMORSE RETURNS

    In most cases we can accept a return and refund for "change of mind" or "accidentaly ordered the wrong item" within 7 days.

    The customer is responsible for any costs involved in returning the item to us, and any original freight costs are not refundable.
    The item must be in original resellable condition (brand new, any seals must still be intact, no signs of it being opened or used).
    Serial numbers are recorded on a majority of items, this must also match our internal records
    Refund will be via the exact same method you original paid with.

    Effective late 2019 - Paypal no longer re-imburses fees to sellers when issuing a refund. Any buyers remorse refunds via Paypal will incur a 2% fee.
