1.1. This Limited Warranty is given by Vision AV Limited (NZCN: 636793) (Vision) and sets out the warranty responsibilities
of Vision for Vision branded products (Hardware).


2.1. This Limited Warranty is for the benefit of the original purchaser (referred to as you in this Limited Warranty) of a new

defective Hardware with a similar new or refurbished product at no cost to you; or

b. accept the return of the Hardware and refund you the original purchase price.

3.3. If the Hardware is repaired or replaced during the Warranty Period, the balance of the Warranty Period shall apply to the

c. to damage or defects to the Hardware caused by your failure to follow the instructions in any user documentation

f. if the Hardware was opened, repaired, altered or modified by someone other than Vision or a Vision authorised service provider;

g. to interfacing, equipment, accessories or other parts or supplies other than original Vision products;

h. if any identification or warning label has been defaced or removed from the Hardware;

i. to any second-hand goods, or to any goods sold or provided ‘as-is’ or as samples or otherwise expressly stated as being supplied without any warranty;

j. to any damage or loss while the Hardware is in transit; or

k. to any software that may be installed on the Hardware.

4.2. Vision does not warrant that the operation of the Hardware will be uninterrupted or error-free.


5.1. To make a claim you need to contact Vision at and return the Hardware during the Warranty Period. In order for Vision to verify your warranty claim and to provide a warranty service, you must provide proof or original purchase. Vision is entitled to charge you for any reasonable shipping and handling costs made in connection with the repair or replacement of the Hardware. You must comply with any other return procedures specified by Vision.

5.2. If the Hardware is returned but the fault with the Hardware is not covered under this Limited Warranty, terms and charges may apply for any repair or processing performed.


6.1. Vision’s warranties are limited to those set out in this Limited Warranty, and all other conditions, guarantees or warranties whether expressed or implied by statute or otherwise (including any implied warranties or merchantability, satisfactory quality and/or fitness for a particular purpose) in respect of the Hardware are disclaimed to the extent permitted by law.

6.2. If you purchased the Hardware for the purposes of a business you agree that the provisions of the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 do not apply.

9.1. Before taking any Court action, a party must use best efforts to resolve any dispute under, or in connection with, this Limited Warranty through good faith negotiations but this requirement does not affect either party’s right to seek urgent interlocutory and/or injunctive relief.


10.1. Any personal information received by Vision in respect of a warranty claim will be used, processed, transmitted, and disclosed to the extent necessary to perform the warranty services described in this Limited Warranty and in accordance with Vision’s Privacy Policy published on its website from time to time.
