TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Wattie is composed of (1) hardware (“Hardware”) and software embedded in the hardware (“Software”), (together, “Product”), and (2) a Wattie user account and applications and services made available to you through mobile devices and/or our website (https://wattie.io) (the “Site”) (collectively, the “Service”). Together the Product and Service are called “Wattie”.
These Terms & Conditions govern your purchase and use of Wattie and the Site. These Terms & Conditions give you specific legal rights, and you may also have other legal rights, which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under these Terms & Conditions will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or other rights, so those provisions of these Terms & Conditions may not apply to you.
THIS IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT. BY PURCHASING WATTIE OR USING THE SITE, YOU ARE ACCEPTING AND AGREEING TO THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR THE ENTITY YOU REPRESENT. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT, AUTHORITY, AND CAPACITY TO ACCEPT AND AGREE TO THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR THE ENTITY YOU REPRESENT. YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE OF SUFFICIENT LEGAL AGE IN YOUR JURISDICTION OR RESIDENCE TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THE PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS, YOU SHOULD DISCONNECT WATTIE AND CEASE USING IT AND/OR YOU SHOULD STOP USING THE SITE.
We reserve the right to change these Terms & Conditions at any time, so please review the Terms & Conditions each time prior to making a purchase from Wattie or visiting the Site. Every time you order Wattie or visit the Site, the Terms & Conditions in force at that time will apply between you and Wattie. If you have any questions regarding these Terms & Conditions, you can contact Wattie as provided herein.
The Site is for retail sales to private consumers only. Please contact email@example.com if you wish to purchase wholesale supplies.
Although our Site is accessible worldwide, Wattie is designed and tested only for use in Europe. If you choose to install and use Wattie outside Pakistan, you do so on your own initiative and you are solely responsible for complying with applicable local laws in your country. To the extent permissible by law, Wattie accepts no responsibility or liability for any damage or loss caused by your installation and use of Wattie.
(a) Hardware Limited Warranty. Wattie warrants that the hardware will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one (1) year from the date of delivery following the original retail purchase (the “Hardware Warranty Period”). If the hardware fails to conform to this Hardware Limited Warranty during the Hardware Warranty Period, Wattie will, at its sole discretion, either (a) repair or replace any defective hardware or component; or (b) accept the return of the hardware and refund the money actually paid by the original purchaser for the hardware. Repair or replacement may be made with a new or refurbished product or components, at Wattie’s sole discretion. If the hardware or a component incorporated within it is no longer available, Wattie may, at Wattie’s sole discretion, replace the hardware with a similar product of similar or greater function. This is your sole and exclusive remedy for breach of this Hardware Limited Warranty. Any hardware that has either been repaired or replaced under this Hardware Limited Warranty will be covered by the terms of this Hardware Limited Warranty for the longer of (a) ninety (90) days from the date of delivery of the repaired hardware or replacement hardware, or (b) the remaining Hardware Warranty Period. This Hardware Limited Warranty is transferable from the original purchaser to subsequent owners, but the Hardware Warranty Period will not be extended in duration or expanded in coverage for any such transfer.
(b) Hardware Warranty Conditions. Before making a claim under this Hardware Limited Warranty, the owner of the hardware must (a) notify Wattie of the intention to claim by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org during the Hardware Warranty Period and provide a description of the failure, and (b) comply with Wattie return shipping instructions. Wattie will have no warranty obligations with respect to returned hardware if it determines, in its reasonable discretion after examination of the returned hardware, that the hardware is an Ineligible Hardware (as defined below). Wattie will bear all costs of return shipping to owner and will reimburse any shipping costs incurred by the owner, except with respect to any Ineligible Hardware, for which owner will bear all shipping costs.
