Performance Guarantee (linked to from the Company>Performance Guarantee page)

Aurora Scientific’s Performance Guarantee is intended to ensure that if you are not completely satisfied with the items that you have purchased you may exchange them for a different model or return them for a full refund.

Our guarantee presupposes that the user has made a reasonable effort to use the product as intended and/or has contacted Aurora Scientific directly for advice or assistance before invoking the performance guarantee.

Products manufactured by Aurora Scientific Inc. (ASI) are guaranteed to the original purchaser for a period of three (3) years. Under this warranty, the liability of ASI is limited to servicing, adjusting and replacing any defective parts that are of ASI manufacture. ASI is not liable to the customer for consequential or other damages, labour losses or expenses in connection with or by reason of the use or inability to use the products manufactured by ASI. Guarantee of parts and components not manufactured by ASI shall be the same as the guarantee extended by the manufacturer of such components or parts. Where possible such parts returned to ASI will be sent to the manufacturer for credit or replacement. Ultimate disposition of these items will depend upon the manufacturer’s decision. All shortages must be reported within thirty (30) days after receipt of shipment. Except where deviations are specified in literature describing particular products, the limited warranty above is applicable to all ASI products, provided the products are returned to ASI and are demonstrated to the satisfaction of ASI to be defective. Transportation costs of all products returned to ASI must be borne by the customer and products must be returned to ASI within three years after delivery to the original purchaser. ASI cannot assume responsibility for repairs or changes not authorized by ASI or damage resulting from abnormal or misuse or lack of proper maintenance.

Repair or service work not covered under the limited warranty will be billed at current service rates.

NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES AND NO IMPLIED WARRANTIES WHETHER FOR MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR USE, OR OTHERWISE OTHER THAN THOSE EXPRESSLY SET FORTH ABOVE WHICH ARE MADE EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, SHALL APPLY TO PRODUCTS SOLD BY ASI, AND NO WAIVER, ALTERATION OR MODIFICATION OF THE FOREGOING CONDITIONS SHALL BE VALID UNLESS MADE IN WRITING AND SIGNED BY AN EXECUTIVE OFFICER OF ASI.

Repairs

Returned items must be securely packed to prevent further damage in transit. The customer is responsible for both shipping and brokerage charges so please mark the waybill accordingly. Please don’t ship freight collect. Shipments sent freight collect will be received but you will be invoiced for the shipping and brokerage charges when your instrument is returned. Aurora Scientific Inc. carries shipping insurance that covers shipments both to and from us. Therefore your shipment will be covered by our insurance policy and you do not need to purchase shipping insurance from the courier. Identification of the item(s) by model number, name, serial number and Return Material Authorization (RMA) number as well as a complete description of the difficulties experienced should be written on the RMA request form and a copy of the form must be included with the item.

Aurora Scientific China Distributor Guidelines

This document is intended for our Distributors and our Customers who purchase through distributors but have concerns about the price the distributor is charging.

Our intention as a manufacturer is always to be open and transparent with customers.

If any customer requests pricing then we will show them our Standard International Selling Prices in US dollars (USD). When viewing these prices customers should be aware that the distributor they are dealing with may have to cover many other costs before delivering the goods to the end-user in China and it is reasonable for a distributor to make a profit on providing such services.

The services/costs the distributor may have to add to the Standard International Selling Prices in USD may include:

  1. Shipping
  2. Import document processing charges
  3. Import VAT
  4. Import Duty (another type of tax)
  5. Finance for credit terms unless end-user pays 100% in advance of delivery
  6. Currency conversion to RMB
  7. Reasonable profit for the distributor for all the above services and for providing support to the customer

If the customer is still unhappy with the distributor we will provide a direct quotation to the customer in USD including shipping (but excluding ALL other costs). This quotation will be at our Standard International Selling Prices in USD and will be based on 100% pre-payment by TT to our bank in Hong Kong in advance.

The customer may then decide to use another import company and/or dealer for this transaction but there will be no discount on these prices to the customer or to any third-party distributor they request us to use for this transaction.

We appreciate the co-operation of all our distributors, dealers and other intermediaries as well as our customers in maintaining an open, fair and transparent pricing policy.
