Standard Warranty Information
Please read these terms and conditions carefully. They contain very important information about your rights and obligations, as well as warranty and liability limitations that may apply to you. By placing an order for Products, you ("Customer") accept and agree to these terms and conditions. A binding contract will only be formed upon OSSL giving notice of its formal acceptance of an order. Acknowledgment of receipt of an order shall not constitute acceptance of an order.
In these terms and conditions: Oregon Scientific SmartLiving Limited is referred to as "OSSL". "Customer" or "you" refers to the person (a natural person or other legal entity) who orders Products or Services via this website, and whose order for Products is accepted by OSSL; "Contract" is the contract containing these terms and conditions, formed by OSSL's acceptance of your order, and credit card or other payment details; "Products" are the products listed as items for sale on OSSL websites; "Services" are any services available from OSSL through OSSL websites, for example, delivery or packaging services; "Terms" are these terms and conditions of sale; "OSSL websites" are the websites operated by or on behalf of OSSL including those located at the internet domain with the URL http://www.oregonscientific.com; and "day" refers to a calendar day.
2. General-Application of Terms and Conditions
Customer's (your) purchase of Products or Services, whether through an OSSL website, is subject to these Terms and no other terms or conditions shall apply. These Terms override any other terms or conditions referred to by Customer or in any course of dealing.
3. Changes to Terms and OSSL websites OSSL may amend these Terms, including payment, guarantee and warranty terms, without notice. Also OSSL reserves the right to modify the terms of separate Product guarantees, at any time. OSSL may provide notices of changes to OSSL websites, the Terms and other matters by displaying notices or hypertext links to notices or by simply making the changes on the relevant OSSL website.
Frequent review of OSSL websites and these Terms is recommended. However, Contracts concluded on the basis of previous terms and conditions remain unaffected.
Although care is taken to ensure the accuracy of the information on OSSL websites, they could include inaccuracies or typographical errors, including pricing errors. OSSL shall not be obliged to honour, nor be liable in respect of, such errors. OSSL and third party suppliers may make improvements and/or changes in Products, Services, Service Programs, Prices and other details described in OSSL websites, at any time. Changes are periodically made to update OSSL websites.
4. Product information and availability changes
OSSL continually updates and revises Products. OSSL may update, revise and/or discontinue Products and/or any peripheral products at any time. OSSL may revise prices for Products listed as available items on OSSL websites at any time. A price remains valid only for the duration of the day on which Customer visits the page of the OSSL website displaying that price. OSSL displays current Products at http://au.oregonscientific.com. OSSL endeavours to maintain Product availability. However, Product availability constantly changes and different Products and Product groups may have different availabilities. All orders are subject to availability of the relevant Product(s). OSSL reserves the right to prioritize orders and to allocate limited stock between orders as it deems fit.
Any weights and measurements stated on OSSL websites are approximate.
The price of Products shall be OSSL's currently applicable price at the date and time of acceptance of the Customer's order. This may be specified on OSSL websites or at Product purchase "check-out", but the definitive price shall be that which is notified to Customer by OSSL on acceptance of the order by OSSL. Any incorrect prices on OSSL websites shall be void and of no effect and in respect of any orders placed for incorrectly priced Products, the correct price as determined by OSSL shall be notified to the Customer and, if the Customer wishes to continue with the order, substituted in place of the incorrect price. ALL prices displayed on our website are valid to online purchases ONLY.
Prices do not include shipping or handling costs, transport insurance, other taxes, levies or charges of any authorities, unless otherwise specified, or otherwise required by applicable law. You agree to pay shipping and handling costs for Products, as specified on the check-out page and any other charges described in the previous sentence (if applicable).
6. Manner of Payment
OSSL accepts payment by approved credit card. OSSL does not accept other means of payment (e.g. cheque).
7. Terms of Payment
Customer must tender payment (via an accepted credit card or other payment means accepted by OSSL) before the delivery of Products unless otherwise agreed with OSSL. Payment collection by OSSL may be effected through third parties.
For credit card payments, Customer must provide his or her valid credit card number and other requested details either in the relevant purchase "check-out" section of the relevant OSSL website, when Customer orders Products. OSSL will attempt to verify the validity of the credit card with the card's issuer and may convey acceptance of the order (as set out below) to Customer if the credit card is accepted.
8. Order Acknowledgment, Order Acceptance, Contract formation
All orders for Products placed by you with OSSL are subject to acceptance by OSSL. OSSL may in its sole discretion accept or reject orders, or advise you of its inability to process orders.
OSSL may send you an acknowledgement of receipt of an order, by e-mail or other medium (including telephone). Such an acknowledgement of receipt may be automatically generated and shall not constitute an acceptance of the order. OSSL websites through which orders can be placed may contain automatic means for identifying and alerting you to certain types of input error before you place your order. Such means may not identify all errors or omissions and you should ensure that the information you submit in your order is accurate and complete.
If an order placed online through an OSSL website OSSL may advise of its acceptance of the order by e-mail.
Any Contract is dependant and conditional upon OSSL's verification of availability and acceptance of both your order and your credit card or other payment details. Unless and until OSSL confirms acceptance of both of these items, OSSL has no obligation to provide any Products or Services.
We maintain records of orders, order acknowledgements and Contracts (including these Terms and order acceptances) and retain these for a reasonable period following delivery. Whilst we may if necessary (and only on written request) be able to provide you with a copy of your Contract, these are not made generally available to Customers. We recommend that you retain a printed copy of these Terms with a copy and/or note of your order, order acknowledgment, order acceptance, and payment method acceptance as evidence of purchase.
9. Account Information
You are solely responsible for 1) providing true, accurate, current and complete information about you as prompted in the OSSL website account details section ("Account Information"), and 2) maintaining and promptly updating Account Information to maintain its accuracy, currency and completeness. You are solely responsible for the security of any password provided to you for purposes of facilitating Product purchases or other matters via this and other OSSL websites. OSSL shall not be liable for any unauthorized use of passwords.
Products will be delivered to the ship to addresses within Australia and New Zealand only, except as otherwise exceptionally agreed with OSSL. OSSL will use its discretion in selecting a reputable carrier and appropriate means of delivery. OSSL may deliver Products by installments in any sequence. Where Products are delivered by installments, each installment is deemed to be the subject of a separate Contract. No default or failure by OSSL in respect of one or more installments will affect the Contract in respect of Products previously delivered or undelivered Products. If OSSL notifies you that it is unable to deliver any installment of Products, you will be deemed to accept those installments already delivered (subject to applicable law).
11. Delivery Date
OSSL aims to deliver promptly. However, there may be reasons for OSSL's inability to ship according to its target dates (most of which are beyond OSSL's control). Accordingly, any dates given by OSSL for the delivery of Products are estimates only, and OSSL cannot and does not undertake that delivery will occur on any specified dates.
If Products cannot be delivered by any estimated or target dates given by OSSL, OSSL may elect to cancel the order and refund any money paid by the Customer. If an order is cancelled, OSSL's only obligation shall be to refund any money paid by the Customer to OSSL.
OSSL retains full legal title to Products until it has received in full all amounts due on those Products and (to the extent permitted by applicable law) payment on any other Products that you have ordered. OSSL reserves rights (subject to applicable law) to terminate Customer's right to use, sell or otherwise deal in Products, and to enter the premises of Customer and repossess Products (or to instruct a third party to do so), if payment is not made when due, or if the credit card company declines payment or requires OSSL to return any payment made for the Products, for any reason.
Title to any software comprising, included in or with Products remains with OSSL, the relevant OSSL Group Company or the relevant licensor, notwithstanding payment.
13. Software Licenses
All software, including pre-loaded software contained in hardware Products, is licensed and not sold. It is licensed either by OSSL or the relevant software owner to you subject to the relevant software end-user license agreement or other terms included with the software and/or with the Product or Services. Software may not be disassembled, decompiled, reverse engineered, merged or combined with any other software, copied, translated, adapted, varied or modified (save as expressly permitted by applicable law) nor may it be distributed in any form.
Where express software license terms are not supplied, software is licensed on a non-exclusive, non-transferable, single user basis for use only with the accompanying Product.
OSSL's guarantees or warranties do not include the correction or avoidance of software defects or errors or the loading or re-loading of Customer's applications software or data or any reconfiguration of Products beyond reloading the operating system software as installed in the Products before shipment (subject to software availability).
14. Your Acceptance of Products
You have the responsibility for examining the Products on delivery and verifying their condition, and that the content of the Product package is complete. Products will be considered to have been accepted by you on delivery, as in good condition, and with all accessories, components and other products and content to be contained in or packaged with the Product, and as otherwise in accordance with the Contract, unless you have on delivery or promptly thereafter inspected the Products and notified OSSL of any deficiencies or defects.
15. Returns Policy
If a product is faulty and within the warranty period (12 months from date of purchase for all products except heart rate monitors which is 24 months from date of purchase, term of warranty also applicable; refer to clause 18) you must obtain an OSSL return reference number. This number may be obtained from OSSL by sending an email to email@example.com along with the following details i.e. name, date of purchase, model number and order number.
On return of the product, OSSL will check and if the product is found faulty, a replacement unit will be send within 28 days subject to exceptions to warranty coverage as mentioned in clause 18 below. If the product is found to be in good condition, a replacement product will not be sent and the return of this product to the consumer is the total responsibility of the consumer.
16. Exceptions to right to return
The right of return does not apply if you do not purchase Products or Services as a consumer. The right of return and refund does not apply to software sold with OSSL products, or as a separate product, if the license seal has been broken and/or shrink-wrap packaging opened.
17. Resale of Product, Parts etc.
Customer shall not resell Product, Product parts, components or accessories packaged with the Products. OSSL may (among other reasons) reject orders placed by Customer if Customer breaches this term (with regard to any Products) or if OSSL reasonably suspects that Customer has breached or will breach this term.
18. Guarantees and Warranties
Subject to the qualification with respect to statutory rights (below), to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, OSSL gives no guarantees or warranties with respect to Products or Services, additional to those in the warranty card included with the Products, (in each case, "Warranties").
Guarantee cards and Typical Guarantee terms and exceptions
In the Warranty cards included with Products, OSSL or the relevant OSSL Group Company gives certain warranties and service undertakings concerning the Products.
The terms of the Warranties applicable to the Products you order may vary depending on the relevant Product, country of sale or intended use of the Product. In the Warranties, OSSL or the relevant OSSL Group Company (as stated in the relevant Warranty) typically guarantees the Product to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 12 months (or other stipulated period) from original purchase. Repair or replacement of defective Products or parts in accordance with the relevant Warranty terms is (to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law) your only and exclusive remedy for defective Product covered by a Warranty.
However, the Warranties (and these Terms) do not affect or detract from, and should not be read to affect, your statutory rights under applicable law (whether as a consumer or otherwise) which cannot be waived or limited by contract, and you may assert your rights at your sole discretion.
The following are some typical exceptions to Warranty coverage (stated in the Warranties):
- A Warranty does not cover damage from adaptations or adjustments made to the relevant Product without the prior written consent of OSSL Scientific.
- A Warranty will not apply if the type or serial number of the product has been altered, deleted, removed or rendered illegible.
- A Warranty does not cover (among other things): a. periodic maintenance and repair or replacement of parts due to normal wear and tear; b. consumables supplied with the Product such as batteries; c. cosmetic damage; d. physical damage to liquid crystal displays; e. damage or loss to software, data or storage media; f. transport costs and risks; g. damage from improper use or maintenance; h. damage from installation or use of the Product inconsistent with applicable technical or safety standards or installation or user instructions; i. damage from improper or incorrect installation of software and other products; j. repair or attempted repair of the Product by non-authorized persons; k. damage from accidents, lightning, water, fire, improper ventilation or any cause beyond the control of OSSL; l. damage by use of the Product with accessories, products or peripheral equipment not made by OSSL; m. damage by defects of any system into which the Product is incorporated; n. software (as mentioned below); and o. damage due to abuse, neglect or commercial use.
The Warranty cards contain warranties and other vital terms concerning the Products, including limitations and exclusions of warranty coverage and liability. Please review the Warranty(ies) which apply to the Products carefully. Placing an order for Products with OSSL constitutes full acceptance of the warranty and warranty terms and limitations set out in these Terms and in any applicable OSSL Warranties available to view at the time of placing an order. The terms of the Warranty card shipped with the Product supersedes (to the extent of any inconsistency) Warranty terms in OSSL websites and other sources.
All warranty services under a Warranty will be provided only on presentation of proof and date of purchase. Therefore, you should keep a copy of the order confirmation email for the Product with the Product Warranty card. You should also keep a copy of the courier delivery note as evidence of the exact delivery date.
Claims to be made within warranty period
Notwithstanding any provision of the Warranty, all warranty claims must be made within the warranty period stipulated in the Warranty.
No other terms or warranties
No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from OSSL, distributors, resellers or other third parties, whether through or from after-sales or other services referred to in, or linked to or from OSSL websites, or otherwise, will create any warranty or condition concerning Product features or capabilities not expressly stated in these Terms or the relevant Warranty(ies). There are no warranties, conditions or other terms that are binding on OSSL other than as stated in these Terms, except for those (if any) provided by your statutory rights under applicable law (whether as a consumer or otherwise) which cannot be waived or limited by contract.
There may be differences between Products delivered to you and seemingly equivalent products described in marketing materials (advertisements, catalogues, specification sheets etc) in manufacturers', distributors', resellers' or other websites or other materials, which may or may not be intended for use in your country of residence. OSSL is not responsible for such differences.
Any other warranty, condition or other term concerning Products that might otherwise be implied into or incorporated into the Terms by law is expressly excluded (to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law). OSSL employees are not authorized to vary these Terms.
If Products (such as certain accessories) are sold without an applicable Warranty card, OSSL gives no warranty or guarantee, other than as stated in applicable law.
Third Party Hardware
If hardware which is not manufactured by OSSL is included as or with Products available for purchase from OSSL and a separate third party Warranty for that hardware is included with Products, the terms of that guarantee or warranty shall apply to the exclusion of the guarantees and warranties mentioned above (to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law).
The Guarantee(s) and/or warranties mentioned above do not cover any software products contained in or supplied with the Products (whether produced by OSSL or by other parties). No guarantees or warranties (express or implied) with respect to software sold with or embedded or incorporated into Products are given, save any expressly set out in any accompanying software end-user license agreement or other terms included with the software.
Any such software is provided "AS IS" (i.e. without warranty or conditions as to its satisfactory quality, fitness for purpose or correspondence with description) unless expressly provided in any end-user license agreement or software or other product warranty from the relevant manufacturer or licensor, enclosed with the relevant Products. Please refer to the end-user license agreements and/or guarantees or warranties included with the Products, for Customer's rights with regards to the manufacturer or supplier of software, and the parties' respective obligations with respect to that software.
Technical Assistance and Support
The Guarantee(s) and warranties do not cover technical assistance for hardware or software use.
OSSL does not offer support to customers for problems or issues regarding any software or other products licensed or manufactured by a party other than OSSL. If Customer needs such support, Customer must contact the respective manufacturer or licensor of the relevant software or other product.
Modification of Guarantees and warranties
OSSL reserves the right to modify warranties (in or referred to in these Terms), and/or separate warranties and guarantees (included with the Products) at any time. However, Contracts accepted on the basis of previous terms and conditions, including Warranties which applied to your purchase (at the time of purchase) remain unaffected.
19. Liability limitation
These Terms set out the full extent of OSSL's (and other OSSL Group Companies') obligations and liabilities in respect of the supply of, or failure to supply, Products. OSSL is not liable to you (or any other parties):
a. for any indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, or for loss of income, profits, bargain, revenue, contracts, goodwill, use, enjoyment, time, data, electronically transmitted orders or other economic advantage (even if OSSL have been advised of the possibility of such damages), however caused, through serious fault, Product unavailability or otherwise and regardless of the theory of liability, whether in contract, tort or otherwise (but not to the extent that applicable law prohibits liability exclusions or limitations for intentional torts or gross negligence, or other fault bases), or
b. for 1) loss of the use of Products or inability to order Products via a OSSL website or other media, 2) the cost of procuring substitute goods and services resulting from any Products, data, information or services purchased or obtained or messages received or transactions entered into through a OSSL website or other media, 3) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmission or data, or 4) statements or conduct of any third party regarding any matter relating to content downloaded from an OSSL website or other media.
This clause and the limitations of liability apply also to OSSL named as the guarantor or warrantor (if any), in the relevant Warranty. If applicable law prevents, restricts or limits OSSL's ability to limit or exclude its liability or its liability in respect of certain kinds of loss, the limitations and exclusions in these Terms shall apply to exclude or limit OSSL's liability to the maximum extent permissible.
Important Consumer Qualification
Nothing in these Terms limits, excludes or affects (and should not be read to limit, exclude or affect) OSSL's liability which, under the laws which apply to you (which may include consumer protection laws in your usual country of residence) cannot be excluded or limited. Nothing in these Terms affects (or should be read to limit or affect) statutory rights under applicable national laws in force which apply to you. You may assert your rights at your sole discretion.

OSSL may share, make available or transmit Personal Data to other departments and divisions in OSSL, and other OSSL Group Companies within Europe and (subject to OSSL's strict compliance with applicable data protection laws) overseas, including OSSL's Parent Company IDT International Ltd.
Disclosure to others
OSSL will not disclose Personal Data to entities and persons, other than OSSL Group Companies and Partners, ("3P's") without your consent, except in the cases below.
Personal Data may be disclosed to 3P's to enable the performance of contracts you are party to or for other purposes specified in these Terms, or in the "Personal Data" (or similarly entitled) section of the OSSL website order submission form or telephone call center ordering process.
Personal Data may be disclosed to 3P's to enable compliance with legal obligations to which OSSL or other OSSL Group Companies are subject.

Where Personal Data is provided in connection with purchase transactions, OSSL may transmit Personal Data to 3P's who are credit/fraud probability assessment agencies or 3P's who are otherwise involved in crime prevention, in order to process the acceptability of your tendered credit card or other payment methods or to combat crime, and/or to credit card and other payment processing agencies. Some agencies have advised that transmitted Personal Data will also be used to generate credit, risk or fraud possibility assessments for OSSL and other third parties with whom you may enter into transactions.
OSSL may use, process and disclose without restriction any anonymous or generic data (including statistics) in which you cannot be identified.
You may request OSSL to inform 3P's to whom Personal Data has been communicated of corrections or deletions to that Personal Data. If OSSL does not have control of that Personal Data, OSSL will use its reasonable efforts to communicate your corrections and deletion requests. However, where Personal Data has been transferred to credit card payment and certain other agencies for payment processing, you may need to contact such agencies directly if you wish Personal Data transferred to those agencies to be rectified or deleted. OSSL cannot assume, and excludes all, responsibility for rectifying or deleting Personal Data which has been transferred (with your consent) to certain agencies such as credit or fraud probability assessment, and payment processing agencies, who require and/or assume control of that data. OSSL accepts no liability for any incorrect credit or other assessments generated by such 3P's, or any other consequences (including adverse credit ratings) of Personal Data disclosed and used as contemplated in the "Personal Data" (or similarly entitled) section of the OSSL website order submission form, and these Terms.

Without limitation, no waiver by any party of any breach of any provision of these Terms shall be a waiver of any subsequent breach of that or any other Term.
If all or any part of one or more of these Terms is or becomes illegal, invalid, unenforceable, or prohibited in any respect under any applicable law or regulation or found to be illegal or unenforceable in whole or in part under any applicable law, or regulation of any jurisdiction or country, or with respect to a certain category of persons, such provision or part shall to that extent, and only if it cannot be interpreted in a manner to avoid the illegality, invalidity or unenforceability (and only in relation to that jurisdiction or country, or category of persons) be deemed not to form part of the Contract.
