3.  Your rights under the warranty

3.1    In the event that the Product does not comply with the warranty:

3.1.1      within a period of 6 months from date of delivery, you may return the Product, without penalty and at Canon's risk and expense, and choose whether Canon repairs or replaces the Product, or refunds you the price paid for the Product, provided that you provide Canon with reasonable proof of purchase; or

3.1.2      if the warranty period is longer than 6 months, for the period of the warranty which exceeds 6 months, Canon will choose whether to repair or replace the Product, provided that you provide Canon with your original receipt.

3.2    Unless the Product is a large format printer, in order to exercise your rights under the warranty, you must return the Product either to the place of purchase or to an authorised service centre.

3.3    Canon has the right to inspect the Product prior to effecting any repair, replacement and/or refund in terms of 3.1.

5.  Exclusions of liability

     This clause 5 constitutes an assumption of risk, liability or both by you. It limits or excludes your rights and remedies against Canon, its employees and sub- contractors in the circumstances described below. This means that you will be financially responsible for your own losses in these instances.

5.1    The warranties described in 1 will not apply if:

5.1.1      the product is used, stored, altered, or handled contrary to Canon's instructions;

5.1.2      non-Canon approved consumables, such as ink, ink refills, paper, toner, toner refills and batteries not compatible with the Product are used, and the use of these non-Canon approved consumables will also immediately invalidate any warranty which may exist in respect of the print head or any other part of the Product related to the printing process, including print quality; fire, accident (whether due to your fault or otherwise), lightning (including power surges), natural disasters or burglary;

5.1.3      non-Canon modifications, other than in accordance with Canon's written instructions, are made;

5.1.4      fittings and accessories not approved by Canon in writing are attached;

5.1.6      the Product is subjected to normal wear and tear.

5.2    Canon, its employees and subcontractors shall not, under any circumstances, be liable for:

5.2.1      loss of income, profits or contracts;

5.2.2      indirect or consequential loss or damage caused by the Product or using the Product;

5.2.3      any data loss or damage arising from changes to your operating, or network operating, system as a result of providing the repair service; or

5.2.4      film/tape or data losses.

5.3    The exclusions of liability in point 5 does not purport to exclude Canon's liability to you in instances of the gross negligence or willful default of Canon or any person acting for or controlled by Canon, or where it would otherwise be:

5.3.1      contrary to, or prohibited by, the Consumer Protection Act, 68 of 2008, for Canon to do so, or

5.3.2      unlawful for Canon to attempt to do so.

6.  General

6.1    This warranty is offered (subject to these terms and conditions) in addition to, and does not affect, your statutory rights.

6.2    Canon may disclose your details and other personal information to other companies within the Canon group including any subsidiary company or sub-contractor of Canon for the purposes of performing its obligations hereunder.

6.3    Canon may disclose your details and other personal information to any subsidiary company, holding company or sub-contractor of Canon for the purpose of market research or direct marketing of other Canon products or services.
