Fluke Australia Pty Ltd - General Warranty Notice
General Warranty Notice »
The terms, conditions and limitations on which Fluke Australia Pty Ltd (Fluke Australia, we or our) warrants its products are set out in Fluke Australia's Statement of Limited Warranty (warranty). Nothing in this Notice adds to or detracts from the warranty. This Notice is provided for information purposes only. Any advice, recommendation, information or assistance provided by Fluke Australia in relation to the warranty is given in good faith and is believed by Fluke Australia to be appropriate and reliable, however, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any advice, recommendation, information, assistance provided by Fluke Australia in relation to the warranty is provided without liability or responsibility on the part of Fluke Australia.
GREY PRODUCTSFluke™ branded products that have not been manufactured by Fluke Australia are occasionally purchased by Australian Consumers (you) from persons or companies located overseas or from Resellers who have purchased these products from persons or companies located overseas without the involvement or consent of Fluke Australia. We refer to these products as "Grey Products". There is, of course, nothing wrong with either you or a Reseller buying products from overseas. Recent advances in the Internet have made it easy for anyone to buy products from online auction sites or from the web sites of overseas sellers. However, there is a problem when it comes to the warranty for these Grey Products.
In recent years we have received an increasing number of requests for service from Consumers who have purchased Grey Products themselves or have purchased Grey Products from a Reseller. Unfortunately these Consumers mistakenly believe that Fluke Australia has an obligation to warrant and provide free repairs for any and all products with the Fluke™ brand on it. This is not correct. The purpose of this Notice is to clarify the circumstances regarding Fluke Australia's warranty obligations and the obligations of those Resellers who buy and then resell Grey Products.
FLUKE AUSTRALIA WARRANTYFluke Australia's obligations regarding product warranties are fully described in Fluke Australia's warranty. Please refer to the warranty for detailed information on the terms, conditions and limitations of Fluke Australia's product warranties. Fluke Australia's warranty will always apply to Fluke™ branded products manufacturer, imported or supplied by Fluke Australia. To assist you to understand how Fluke Australia's warranties relate to Grey Products we note the following:
- Our warranty does not apply to any products purchased at auction (whether online or otherwise). If you buy a Fluke Australia product at auction then we do not warrant that product; and
- Our warranty does not apply to any Grey Products that you buy yourself or that you buy from a Reseller.
Put simply, this means that if a Reseller buys Fluke™ branded products (that have not been manufactured by Fluke Australia) from overseas and then sells these products in Australia, Fluke Australia is not liable for the warranty on those products. If you choose to buy these Grey Products from a Reseller then any claims that you have relating to defects in those Grey Products should be made to the Reseller who sold you the product. If you choose to buy Grey Products yourself from overseas then you must contact the person who sold you the Grey Products if those products are defective.
Fluke Australia recognises that it is the right of every Consumer to decide who you purchase products from. However, if you choose to purchase Fluke™ branded products from any supplier other than Fluke Australia, or our authorised distributors or resellers who have obtained their products from Fluke Australia, then you may be purchasing a product that is not covered by Fluke Australia's warranty.
If you are unsure of the product that you intend to purchase, or if you would like to know which distributors or resellers stock Fluke™ branded products that come with our warranty, then please refer to the Where to Buy section of our web site at www.fluke.com.au.
