Warranty claim procedure

(a)

To obtain the benefit from this warranty:

(i) the Product must have been installed in accordance with Galvin Engineering installation instructions and application guidelines supplied with the Product including where applicable by a licensed plumbing contractor and/or licensed electrical contractor; and

(ii)

the Customer must:

(A) contact Galvin Engineering within the Warranty Period or within 7 days of the discovery of the claimed problem, whichever is the earlier; and (B) obtain Galvin Engineering’s prior written approval (including the approval of all costs) for all service agents or technicians to repair, alter or replace the Product the subject of any claim under this warranty. (b) The Customer may make a claim under this warranty by completing and sending the Warranty Registration Form to Galvin Engineering Pty Ltd, including providing a copy of the proof of purchase of the Product and handover documentation for new buildings. (c) On receipt of the Warranty Registration Form, Galvin Engineering will contact the Customer to determine the extent of the issue with the Product and, where possible, attempt to resolve the issue. (d) Where the Product has not been installed, the Customer may arrange to have the alleged defective Product delivered to Galvin Engineering, the place or purchase, or to a repairer specified to the Customer in writing by Galvin Engineering for a refund, repair, or replacement. If the cost or returning any defective Products (or parts) is unreasonable, the Customer can contact Galvin Engineering and, if appropriate, Galvin Engineering may arrange collection of the product. (e) Where the Product has been installed, the Customer may request a Galvin Engineering service technician to travel to the Customer’s site to effect repairs or replacement of the Product, but the reasonable travel expenses (including travelling time) of the technician must be paid by the Customer. (f) A Galvin Engineering service technician will not attend the Customer’s site until Galvin Engineering receives a completed Service Call Agreement Form. Please add any further information that may be useful for us in solving your issue more promptly, such as photos or videos of the Product and installation.

(g) The Customer agrees to give Galvin Engineering’s service technician all necessary access to effect Product installation, repairs, or replacement. Galvin Engineering will not be responsible for any damage, loss or costs, or any consequential damage, loss, or costs, where reasonable access is not available, and it reserves the right to provide a replacement item or refund only in these circumstances. If site access is not available when the Galvin Engineering service technician attends, the Customer will still be liable for the reasonable travel expenses of the technician. (h) Any service outside the scope of this warranty will be charged for at Galvin Engineering's rates and terms then in effect and in accordance with the terms of the Service Call Agreement Form. Galvin Engineering recommends that the Customer confirm those rates and terms prior to requesting this service. (i) The Customer must obtain Galvin Engineering’s written approval to use a service technician or repairer other than Galvin Engineering’s service technicians to undertake any service work including the approval of all costs.

7.

Transportation costs

All transportation charges incurred in returning a defective Product, or any of its component parts, to Galvin Engineering for repair or inspection, and the cost of returning them to the Customer, must be paid by the Customer.

8.

Excluded components

Subject to any statutory provisions to the contrary, this warranty does not extend to cover damage to furniture, carpets, walls, foundations, vehicles, or any other consequential loss either directly or indirectly due to malfunction of the Product after the Customer takes delivery of the Product.

9.

Third party warranties

All Third-Party Equipment may be covered by the original manufacturer’s warranty. It is the Customer’s responsibility to familiarise itself with these warranties, and, subject to clause 2(b), that warranty is the only warranty given to the Customer in respect of that part of the Product.

10.
