The Company will, at its option, replace or credit the Purchaser with the value of any defective goods supplied by the Company. The Company will only do this if it is satisfied such defects arose solely through faulty material or workmanship, and such goods are returned, in a manner agreed by the Company, immediately upon discovery of the defect. The Company will normally not consider any claims made after 12 months from date of despatch.
