(i) remedy any defect or fault in any product purchased; or
(ii) replace any product in respect of which there is a defect or fault, during the warranty period, provided that notice is given by the Purchaser to TOVO Lighting of any such defect or fault in the product as soon as the Purchaser becomes aware of that fault or defect. All warranty claims must be returned to TOVO Lighting for assessment with a receipt or other proof of payment. No warranty is given in respect of any glass contained in any product.

The Purchaser is entitled to a repair or replacement (as per clause 2) if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
- TOVO Lighting has no liability to remedy any defect in a product or replace a product where the defect or fault is caused or contributed to by
(i) the failure of the Purchaser to install the product according to specific installation instructions either supplied within each product or available on the TOVO Lighting website or through the wholesaler or TOVO Lighting 's representative; or
(ii) use of the product in a manner or for a purpose for which it was not designed.
- All site application or installation must reflect these procedures otherwise the product warranty will be considered void or will not take effect.
- Except as provided for in this warranty, and to the extent allowed by law, TOVO Lighting 's liability in respect of the product under the law of any State or Territory is excluded.

This Clause 5 will only apply in Australia to the extent to which the provisions of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (“ACL’’)") apply to contracts entered into by TOVO Lighting for the provision of goods and services. In all other countries the local equivalent Competition and Consumer legislation shall apply and TOVO Lighting exercises all its rights to limit its liability to the full extent allowed.
- Pursuant to section 64A of the Act, this Clause 6 applies in respect of the goods or services supplied by TOVO Lighting which are not of the kind ordinarily acquired for personal, domestic, or household use or consumption, provided that this Clause 6 will apply if the Purchaser establishes that reliance on it would not be fair and reasonable.
Liability for a breach of a condition or warranty implied by the Act is limited to any one of the following, as determined by TOVO Lighting in its sole discretion:
(i) the replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods;
(ii) the repair of the goods;
(iii) the payment of the cost of replacing the goods or acquiring equivalent goods; or
(iv) the payment of the cost of having the goods repaired.
In no event will TOVO Lighting be liable to the Purchaser for any damages, including lost profits, lost savings or any other incidental or consequential damages arising out of the use or inability to use the product or any claim by any other party. All claims are limited to the repair or the replacement of the products only and do not include any labour or transportation charges.
