At O-video, our goal is to ensure you are completely satisfied with your purchase. If for whatever reason you wish to return your purchase our returns policy and procedure is set out below.
1.1 Other than the express provisions set out in these Terms, all other terms and the implied terms or warranties relating to the supply of goods or services are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
1.2 In the event that you need to return Goods, then a Goods Returns Authorisation Number (RAN) must be obtained from us for each and every return so that we are able to administratively process your return, otherwise we have no means of identifying the Goods being returned and this may result in difficulties in returning monies. You will be sent a RAN acknowledgement by email. The RAN must be clearly shown on each parcel returned, and must be in the original manufacturer's packaging (which shall not be defaced) complete with accessories, manuals and documentation. Software packages must be returned unopened with the Software seals intact. Except in the case of faulty Goods, returned items not complying with these requirements will be rejected.
1.3 In the event that any Goods Delivered to you do not correspond with the Goods in the Order Confirmation, or have been Delivered to you by mistake, then you will be under a duty to take reasonable care of such Goods and to contact our Customer Services team immediately no later than 14 days. We will then arrange for a courier to collect the Goods and replacements to be supplied on a credit and recharge basis.
1.4 Care of Goods to be Returned
Whilst in possession of the Goods you will be under a duty to take reasonable care of them. We reserve the right to refuse a refund on Goods returned which have been made unfit for resale or damaged whilst in your possession.
1.5 Address for Returns of Goods
If you need to return Goods to us for whatever reason, then please send such items to: O-video UK, Units 3&4 Teddington Business Park, Station Road, Teddington. Middlesex. TW11 9BQ.
1.6 Return of Defective Goods
(a) In the event that Goods are found to be defective at any time within the first 30 days from delivery then please contact our Customer Services team immediately that you become aware of the defect, ensuring that you have the item's serial number available to provide to our staff. Different manufacturers have differing policies for dealing with Goods which are termed 'dead on arrival', meaning that the Goods are found to be faulty either on delivery or very shortly afterwards. You will therefore be advised by our Customer Services team
of the relevant manufacturer's returns policy. We will not charge you for the collection of the Defective Goods.
It is your responsibility to package and secure the Goods prior to collection to prevent damage during their return to us.
(b) We shall at our option repair or replace such Defective Goods (or the defective part) and only if a repair or replacement is not possible or would be disproportionate to the price of such Goods we shall at our discretion refund the price of such Defective Goods at the pro-rate contract rate provided that you return the Defective Goods to us with all internal and external parts that were delivered with the Goods.
(c) If we arrange for a courier collection of your Goods, this will normally take place between 9.00am and 5.30pm, and it is your responsibility to ensure that someone will be present at the collection address when the courier arrives.
(d) On receipt by us of the returned Goods, if following the testing process the Goods are found to be in good working order without defect, we will return the Goods to you, and the carriage costs of this return will be your responsibility. Please note that if you have, in the meantime, required us to provide you with replacement Goods before completion of the testing process, you will be liable to pay for these Goods. If, when we examine the Defective Goods, it is evident that the defect has arisen because you have failed to follow O-video's or the manufacturer's instructions as to the storage, installation, commissioning, use or maintenance of the Goods, or if you have altered the Goods without the written consent of O-video then we reserve the right to refuse a repair, replacement or refund.
(e) You should note that we adhere to individual manufacturers' guidelines in respect of acceptable deviation of quality of certain items. Therefore, we reserve the right not to accept Goods considered by you to be defective if the error or fault is within the manufacturer's accepted manufacturing tolerances. If you have any doubt, please contact our Customer Services. As an example, due to the current manufacturing methods of active matrix display panels, a small percentage of sub-pixel anomalies (i.e. a pixel that is stuck on or off) are accepted by the industry as unavoidable. Accordingly, because the manufacturing yield of perfect active matrix panels is low, displays may have some sub-pixels that are either always on or off. The cost of accepting only theoretically perfect displays would almost double the price of a portable computer using an LCD screen. Please be aware of this before purchasing a TFT screen.
2.1 Warranty Claims
(a) If Goods become faulty more than 30 days after delivery then you are advised to contact the manufacturer and use their warranty procedure. Unless otherwise stated in the manufacturer's documentation, all Goods carry a manufacturer's warranty.
(b) If you wish to make a warranty claim, you must comply with the manufacturer's instructions and warranty procedure. In order to resolve your problem as quickly as possible, we will refer you to the manufacturer who will deal directly with the return. In these instances, we will provide you with the contact information for the relevant manufacturer.
(c) All warranties provided under these Terms shall be invalidated if the Goods have been worked upon, altered or damaged in any way by you or your employees or agents, or if the Goods have not been used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
(d) You should note that certain Goods have a reduced warranty period. In particular, Goods specified as 'refurbished' are only subject to a 3-month warranty from the date of delivery. Your statutory rights are not affected when you purchase such Goods.
2.2 Return for credit
(a) In the event that we, at our absolute discretion, agree to accept the return for credit of unwanted products, the Goods must be returned with our prior written agreement within 14 days of delivery. The Goods must be unopened, with the manufacturers' seals intact and in perfect re-saleable condition. All Goods returned in these circumstances will not be subject to a re-stocking fee. Please ensure that the Goods you have purchased are to
your specification prior to breaking the manufacturers' seals. This will avoid disappointment and the Goods being rejected, should you wish to return them.
(b) Any Goods returned unopened, with the manufacturers' seal intact and in re-saleable condition, outside of the 14 days specified in clause 5.8(a) may be returned for credit subject to our absolute discretion and shall be decided by us on a case-by-case basis. All Goods returned in these circumstances will be subject to a reasonable re-stocking fee to cover our administrative charges.
(c) No Software on which seals have been broken can be returned for credit. If any Software discs are faulty, then you are advised to use the manufacturer's warranty procedure. Please note Software Licences are non-returnable unless the Software is materially non-compliant with its specification or the physical media on which it is supplied is defective.
