Returns & Refund Policy

There is a strict no returns or refund policy on all Ethitech products and consumables.

Warranty of Quality and Replacements

In terms of s56 (read with s55) of the CPA, all Ethitech goods sold to consumers have a standard manufacturing warranty in that:

  • Goods are reasonably suitable for the purpose that they are intended to be used for,
  • Goods are of good quality, free of defects and in good working order, and
  • Goods will be durable and usable for a reasonable period of time.

A product is not defective, and the customer will not be entitled to any, replacement refund or credit under the general warranty if:

  • The faults/damage are a result of normal wear and tear;
  • The damage arising from incorrect usage or storage of the product;
  • Product performance or results discrepancy is a result of user error, or user not consistently adhering to correct testing procedures.

If the product is found NOT to be defective and is commercially acceptable, or where user error is the reason for results discrepancy,  you will NOT be entitled to any repair or replacement but will instead be liable for the costs incurred in having had such product returned to Ethitech as well as the costs of redelivering the product back to you.

The decision to repair, replace or credit goods for a customer remains at the discretion of Ethitech.

Ethitech is only liable according to the manufacturer warranty of our products.  Ensure to verify the warranty period of your product upon your initial purchase.
