RECALIBRATION SERVICES WARRANTY

We warrant our Recalibration Services for a period of 12 months after the Recalibration Service is completed or until the next Recalibration Event occurs, whichever occurs first (warranty period).
In this warranty:
ADAS means Advanced Driver Assistance System.
Recalibration Events include windscreen replacements, wheel alignments, change of wheels, change of tyre, geometry changes, faulty engine control unit or disconnection or partial removal of the camera from its mounting or any other event after which your vehicle manufacturer recommends you should have your ADAS recalibrated.
Recalibration Services means a service pursuant to which the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems in a vehicle is recalibrated by Us.
Most vehicle manufacturers recommend that vehicle owners should have their ADAS recalibrated after a Recalibration Event. It is important that you check your vehicle guide book for manufacturers recommendations about when recalibration is recommended. It is reasonably expected that vehicles could expect to experience any number of events in a year that affect components like suspension or tyres, impacting upon the reliability of the camera recalibration. For this reason, We recommend recalibration of vehicle ADAS cameras at least once every 12 months.
In the event of any suspected fault in a vehicle’s ADAS, and following the occurrence of a Recalibration Event, drivers of the vehicle should not rely on the ADAS technology within the vehicle and the owner of the vehicle must ensure they take reasonable action to notify all those who might drive the vehicle to not place reliance on the vehicle’s ADAS.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this warranty, if, during the warranty period for a Recalibration Service, We determine that the Recalibration Services were defective in material or workmanship then We will re-perform the Recalibration Service free of charge.
Alternatively, if, during the 6-month period after the Recalibration Services was completed, We determine that the Recalibration Services were defective in material or workmanship then you may elect to receive a full refund of the amount paid to us for a Recalibration Service.
