Dead On Arrival (or “DOA”) Products

A delivered product is determined to be DOA if it is not of acceptable quality when first removed from its original packaging. Sloane Accessories Customer Service will make a DOA determination with reference to the relevant legislation contained in the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (formerly known as the Trade Practices Act 1974).

In the case of a DOA determination, Sloane Accessories will issue a full refund or a replacement to you for a DOA product if there has been a major failure. You have the discretion as to whether you receive a full refund or a replacement product in the event that there has been a major failure.

A major failure is defined as a product which:

  • differs significantly from the descriptions given on the Sloane Accessories website;
  • is substantially unfit for the purpose for which the goods are generally used or for a purpose which you have made known to Sloane Accessories prior to purchase; or

In the case of either a major or minor failure, Sloane Accessories will be responsible for the costs of you returning the product to Sloane Accessories.

Should a product not be determined to be DOA, Sloane Accessories reserves the right to refuse to refund or replace the product. A replacement product becomes yours upon delivery. In the case of a refund or replacement product, the DOA-determined product becomes the property of Sloane Accessories when it has been determined to be a DOA-determined product by us.

Dead Shortly Following Arrival (or “DSFA”) Products

If, after a reasonable amount of time after successful product delivery (usually 30 days) you find that your product is not of acceptable quality, contact Customer Service. If Customer Service determines your product to be DSFA as not being of acceptable quality and having a major failure (as defined above), Sloane Accessories will issue a full refund or a replacement of the DSFA product. You have the discretion as to whether you receive a full refund or a replacement product in the event that there has been a major failure. If the product is not of acceptable quality but only has a minor failure, Sloane Accessories has the right to offer you either a full refund, to repair the product or give you a replacement product.

Should a product not be determined to be DSFA, Sloane Accessories reserves the right to refuse to refund or replace the product. A replacement product becomes your property upon delivery. In the case of a refund or replacement product, the DSFA-determined product becomes the property of Sloane Accessories when it has been determined by us to be a DSFA-determined product.

Defect Later-On (or “DLO”) Products

A delivered product is determined to be DLO if it is not determined to be DOA or DSFA, and it is determined to not to be of acceptable quality after a reasonable time of your owning the product.

“Reasonable time” is defined as the length of time in which it is reasonable to expect a product to be free of problems or defects, taking into consideration such factors as price, quality, and degree of use.

If Customer Service determines your product to be DLO, as not being of acceptable quality and having a major failure (as defined above), Sloane Accessories will issue a full refund or a replacement of the DLO product. You have the discretion as to whether you receive a full refund or a replacement product in the event that there has been a major failure. If the product is not of acceptable quality but only has a minor failure, Sloane Accessories has the right to offer you either a full refund, to repair the product or give you a replacement product.

If Customer Service determines that a product not DLO, Sloane Accessories reserves the right to refuse to replace or refund the product. A replacement product becomes your property upon delivery. In the case of a refund or replacement product, the DLO-determined product becomes the property of Sloane Accessories when it has been determined by us to be a DLO-determined product.

Many of our products are also accompanied by the promise of such services as Customer Support for technical troubleshooting or other issues. We encourage our customers to fully understand and take advantage of manufacturer warranties and promised Customer Support services.
