6.3 We shall at our option repair* or replace any defective Goods, and only if a repair or replacement is not possible would we at our discretion refund the price of such defective Goods plus the delivery costs paid (except for the additional costs arising if you selected a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us). In all cases we reserve the right to inspect the Goods and verify the fault.

Please note that if you have, in the meantime, required us to provide you with replacement Goods before the completion of the testing process, you will be liable to pay for these Goods.
6.7 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.
* Repairs will be carried out by the manufacturer’s own service teams to ensure your Goods are repaired by skilled and qualified engineers.
7. FAULTY GOODS
7.1 If the Goods are found to be defective at any time within the first 30 days from delivery then please contact us immediately when you become aware of the defect. Different manufacturers have different policies for dealing with Goods, which are deemed to be ‘dead on arrival’ meaning that the Goods are found to be faulty either on delivery or shortly afterwards. You will therefore be advised of the relevant manufacturer’s return policy. In the event that the manufacturer’s returns policy applies 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.
7.2 If it is evident that the defect has arisen because you have failed to follow Tablet Academy Shop or the manufacturer’s instructions as to storage, installation, commissioning, use or maintenance of the Goods, or if you have altered the Goods without the written consent of Tablet Academy Shop then we reserve the right to refuse a repair, replacement or refund.
7.3 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.

8.1 While we try to offer reliable data, we cannot promise that catalogue content will always be accurate and up-to-date, and you agree that you will not hold us responsible for inaccuracies in our catalogue.
8.2 If we discover an error in the price of goods ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and provide you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it.
