LIMITED WARRANTY

 

These Aero41 Warranty Policies (these “Policies”) only apply to Aero41 products you purchased from Aero41 authorized retailers/agents for your own use and not for resale.

 

By using your Aero41 product, you agree to be bound by these Policies. If you are not eligible or do not agree to any of the Terms, do not use your Aero41 product.

 

Warranty duration

 

The warranty on your drone starts on the date of its delivery (as per hand-over form). The warranty lasts 24 months.

 

Warranty extension

 

Warranty extension, if available, can only be purchased once per equipment. Warranty extensions can be purchased only while the equipment is still under warranty. Aero41 retains the right to refuse an extended warranty for any reason.

 

What is covered?

 

Under this Limited Warranty, Aero41 warrants that each Aero41 product that you purchase will be free from material and workmanship defects under normal use in accordance with Aero41’s published product materials during the warranty period. Aero41’s published product materials include, but not limited to, OM, user manuals, safety guidelines, specifications, in-app notifications, and service communications (Safety Notices, etc.).

 

How to obtain warranty service?

 

If a product does not function as warranted during the warranty period, you may obtain after-sales service by contacting Aero41. You will need to provide a valid proof-of-purchase or receipt for the warranty service. Charges may apply for services not covered by this Limited Warranty. Please contact Aero41 for information specific to your location. Please note that the warranty service is only available in the respective Aero41 service regions where you purchased your Aero41 product.

 

What will Aero41 do?

 

Aero41 will attempt to diagnose and resolve your problem by telephone or e-mail. Aero41 may direct you to download and install particular software updates. If your problem cannot be resolved over telephone or through e-mail, you may be required to deliver the product to Aero41 for further examination. Aero41 will arrange for repair or replacement service at no cost if the problem falls under this Limited Warranty.

Product and part replacement

Use of personal contact information and data (see also Privacy Policy)

You agree and understand that it is necessary for Aero41 to collect, process and use your data to perform service under this policy. We may contact you to inquire about your satisfaction with our service or to notify you about any product recalls or safety issues. We may also disclose your information where required by law.

Essential information

  • You are responsible for shipping costs when sending product(s) for return, repair or replacement.

  • Aero41 will examine the returned product(s) to identify the problem. If the problem qualifies for service under this policy, Aero41 will bear the cost for refund, replacement, or repair and return the product(s) at our cost to you.

  • If Aero41 determines that the issue in question is not covered by this Aero41 policy, you will have to apply for paid repair service. Aero41 will not start repair until you agree to the cost for repair quoted by Aero41. If you disagree with the cost for repair, Aero41 will return the product(s) with you burdening the cost of return shipping.

  • Products and components presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired. These refurbished goods have been tested and are similar to brand new goods in function and appearance. If any refurbished parts or units do not meet our quality assurance requirements, brand new parts or units will be issued. Any replaced parts may come with different serial numbers.

  • Where a product is capable of retaining user-generated data, such data may be lost during the repair process. We therefore recommend that you back up your data prior to any repair.

  • Data analysis service will not be provided after warranty expiration.

  • Before sending your product for repair, remove any customized decorations and items on it (including but not limited to decorative stickers, UAS stickers, paintings, etc.). Aero41 will not be responsible for any damage or loss that may occur to these customized decorations and items.

  • To guarantee your legal rights, please check whether your product is intact (check whether any damage has occurred to your product during transportation) when signing for it. If the product has a defect, please report it to us within seven (7) days of signing for it; or it will be deemed that the product you signed for is intact and fully functional.
