The warranties and product support set out in these Terms and Conditions are provided by Dick Smith and Dick Smith Electronics (as the case may be) irrespective of:
- the identity of the manufacturer of the Product;
- whether or not the manufacturer has provided its own warranties or product support in relation to the Product.
For the avoidance of doubt we make no representations or warranty in relation to the existence, non-existence, validity, availability, terms or conditions of any other warranties or product support that may or may not be offered or provided by the manufacturer of the Product.
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 goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
Subject to the terms and conditions set out below, Dick Smith and Dick Smith Electronics agree to repair or replace the KA Product or KHK Product (as the case may be) which it supplied to you at its own cost or provide you with a refund if the Product is found to be defective and not able to perform in accordance with our specifications during:
- the Dick Smith Warranty period as set out in the diagram at the end of these terms; or
- the applicable Extended Care period,
commencing on the date of delivery of the Product. Where there is no proof of delivery, this date will be assumed to be 3 business days from the date of dispatch of the Product.
When requesting service under the Dick Smith Warranty or Extended Care, proof of purchase (invoice or paid Order confirmation) must be provided and every effort must be made to return any accessories such as connectivity cables, remote controls, battery chargers, and power cables, that were sold with the Product.
When requesting service under the Dick Smith Warranty or Extended Care you must comply with directions from our staff in relation to troubleshooting any issue and facilitating any repair or replacement.
You are responsible for inspecting the Product received from Dick Smith upon arrival. Where Products are faulty or damaged upon delivery, photographic evidence of the damage must be submitted to Dick Smith Support via theHelp Centre within 3 days of receipt of the Product otherwise we can deny your claim.
Where we have an obligation to repair a Product, we reserve the right to replace the Product with the same or equivalent Product, rather than repair it.
Where we provide a replacement we will determine, in our discretion, the closest Product within the then current range of Products offered by us with which to replace the faulty or damaged Product. The replacement Product may differ with the replaced Product in size and specifications, at our reasonable election. We may replace parts with refurbished parts. Replacement of the Product or a part under the Dick Smith Warranty or Extended Care does not extend or restart the Dick Smith Warranty or Extended Care period.
Where we have an obligation to repair or replace the Product but we are not reasonably able to do so, we will offer a store credit or a refund of the purchase price of the Product excluding the cost of delivering the Product (‘Delivery Cost’).
In the event that a replacement or refund, is provided, the faulty item will become our property.
Subject to clause 13, where we authorise the repair of replacement of a Product, we will organise for our authorised courier to pick up the Product during business hours (between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday) and deliver it to the appropriate authorised repair centre, provided that the Product is safely and securely packaged for safe transport. If we deem it appropriate, we may alternatively supply a pre-paid postage label for the Product to be returned via our chosen carrier to the authorised repair centre. In either instance it will be at our cost. Alternatively, if we specifically authorise you in writing, you may take the Product to the appropriate repair centre or post the Product as directed by us in which case we will refund you the cost of the postage on provision of a scanned copy of the postage receipt. Where you are located outside Australia, we may require that the Product be sent to Hong Kong or Australia, as directed by us.
If you do not have the original packaging, you will bear the responsibility for safely packaging your Product for transport and we accepts no liability for any damage that may occur in transit. If your Product was exclusively available for shipping to Sydney and Melbourne metro areas only, we will collect and return the Product from these areas only.
We reserve the right to determine the authorised repair centre.
The Product will be at the Customer's risk while in transit to and from the Dick Smith Authorised Repair Centre.
We may seek reimbursement of any costs we incurred where the Product is found to be in good working order, or when it has been determined that the Dick Smith Warranty or Extended Care (as the case may be) does not apply.
We will reasonably determine whether any Product is or is not performing in accordance with the Dick Smiths's specifications.
Extended Care is available for purchase for some Products, as listed on the Website and may be purchased up to 14 days after delivery of Your Products.
Where an Extended Care is purchased, it will replace the Dick Smith Warranty period with the Extended Care period (for example, either 3 or 5 years).
