Customs authorities may require us to declare the value of the products you have purchased.
9.3 You acknowledge that delays associated with customs clearance procedures may cause our original delivery time frames estimates to be exceeded. We are not responsible for such delays.
9.4 Actual shipping costs and applicable taxes will be reflected on your order page before you are asked to confirm and place your order and also will also appear on your confirmation of acceptance. Delivery costs are described in section 8 above. Applicable sales and use taxes will vary based on the location to which products are being shipped. Delivery costs and applicable sales and use taxes are not stated on the product pages but will be added to the product price after you have chosen your delivery options.
9.5 Applicable sales tax associated with your purchase, if any, will be calculated at the time your order is to be shipped, at which point you will receive a confirmation of acceptance. Please note that changes to applicable law between the date your order is placed and the date you are sent a confirmation of acceptance may result in changes to the sales tax applicable to your purchase. If the change in law results in an increase in the sales tax applicable to your purchase, we will notify you and ask that you reconfirm your purchase.
9.6 The fact that we may not be obligated, under the laws of the jurisdiction in which a purchaser of our products is located or to which our products are being shipped, to collect sales tax with respect to the purchase of such products shall not be deemed to constitute a representation on our part that such products are not subject to use tax or any other tax applicable under the laws of such jurisdiction or any other jurisdiction in which such products may be owned or used.
10. Warranties and guarantees in relation to our goods
10.1 We offer a minimum twelve month limited warranty from the date of purchase against defects in material and/or workmanship on all of the products that we sell.
10.2 Miseno branded watches have a three year limited warranty and lifetime limited battery replacement, provided that the International Guarantee Booklet provided with the watch is presented to a Miseno store before the work on such watch under this guarantee can be started. To the extent permitted by relevant consumer protection laws, this three year limited guarantee does not cover:
(a) pressure tests in water proof watches after battery replacement;
(b) adjustment to links, bracelets or straps (including refurbishment of any adjustment damage);
(c) further rhodium plating;
(d) repairs or refurbishment of shop soiled or shop distressed stock or repairs necessary due to misuse or normal wear and tear and any repairs made by unauthorised service centres; and
(e) any other matter excluded by 10.5 or 10.6 below.
We may impose fees payable by you in relation to any repair/service not covered by this three year guarantee or where the guarantee has expired.
10.3 We may, at our sole option, repair or replace a defective product or provide a refund of the purchase price.
10.4 Repair, replacement, or refund as set forth at section 10.1(c) above, are without prejudice to your rights at law. The remedies under the twelve month limited warranty and three year watch limited warranty are given by Miseno in addition to, and not in place of, your rights at law.
10.5 The twelve month limited warranty and the three year watch limited warranty each exclude, to the extent permitted by law, damage due to ordinary wear and tear, misuse, accident, abuse, alteration, substitution, improper repair or warranty service performed by someone other than us or our authorised repairers, theft, disappearance, loss (including lost stones) or any other type of use causing deterioration.
10.6 Loose diamond stones supplied by Miseno and assembled by someone other than Miseno or its authorised agents can be damaged during jewellery assembly. Such damage will not be covered by the twelve month limited warranty or the three year watch limited warranty, and Miseno will not be liable for any such damage.
10.7 Miseno reserves the sole right to judge whether or not an item of jewellery has been subject to ordinary wear and tear, misuse, abuse, alteration, substitution, improper repair or warranty service performed by someone other than Miseno (or its authorised repairers), theft, disappearance, loss (including lost stones) or any other type of use causing deterioration. If, in our sole discretion, such jewellery shows signs of any of the foregoing, the twelve month limited warranty or the three year watch limited warranty will be entirely void.
10.8 To obtain any limited warranty service for any product that is a diamond product with a sales price greater than $990, you must provide Miseno with an original certificate of authenticity for that item. This certificate of authenticity must be fully completed and signed on behalf of us by an authorised person at the time of purchase. If this certificate of authenticity has been altered in any fashion, the warranty is void to the maximum extent permitted by law.
10.9 White gold jewellery is rhodium plated to enhance its appearance. This plating is not permanent and will require further plating to maintain the enhanced appearance. Neither the twelve month limited warranty nor the three year watch limited warranty cover any further rhodium plating.
10.10 When a product is repaired under the original guarantee term, only the remaining term of the original guarantee will continue to apply (e.g. if a product is purchased under the 12 month limited guarantee and returned for repair after 11 months from the date of purchase, once the repaired product is handed back to the customer, the remaining guarantee term will be only 1 month and any other repairs after this term will be outside the original guarantee period and may be charged accordingly).
