•    EXCEPTIONS TO THE GENERAL RULE:

•    Special Offers: If the product was ordered pursuant to a “Special Offer” and such product is no longer being offered at the special price, should you elect to have the product repaired or replaced (as opposed to being refunded), In2sports.co.za  will only be able to repair, not replace same.

•    Certain product types which have been opened:  To combat the illegal copying of digital media, if the following types of products are returned for being defective or damaged, they will only be replaced with another copy of the same product and will not be refunded: CDs, Videos, DVDs, audio tapes, computer software, games and printer consumables.

•    Photographic or Video equipment:  When returning the product, the relevant invoice and proof of payment must also be returned to In2sports.co.za .  Assessments and repairs are carried out by the approved repair centres and may take up to 6 weeks.

•    eBooks:  Due to the many variables which could render an eBook (being the .pdf or .epub file) or the Link thereto (being .acsm file) problematic or defective; the fact that it is not possible to return a defective Link or eBook to In2sports.co.za  for inspection; and the resultant difficulty in proving the existence or cause of any defect, any alleged defect in an eBook or Link thereto shall be dealt with as follows:

•    Should you experience any problems in using the Link to access the eBook, or in opening or reading the eBook itself, or, although able to read the eBook, the eBook is defective in some other way (missing pages, incorrect book, etc), you must report the problem to In2sports.co.za  by way of email to email:shop@in2sports.co.za or by contacting the +27 82 99 77 888, within 6 months of purchase.

•    If timeously reported as aforesaid, In2sports.co.za  shall assist you in determining the possible cause/s of the problem and how to rectify same.  If In2sports.co.za  deems it necessary, it may liaise with the relevant service providers in this regard to rectify the problem or to issue you with a new Link if required, but no refunds shall be issued unless In2sports.co.za , determines that a refund would be appropriate.

•    It should be noted that it will be even more unlikely that In2sports.co.za  deems a refund appropriate if you have already downloaded the eBook.  Consequently, if you believe an error has been made in your purchase (ie you’ve accidentally ordered the incorrect eBook), please report the problem to In2sports.co.za  WITHOUT clicking on the Link to download the eBook.

•    Manufacturer’s Warranties/Guarantees: Certain products may carry additional manufacturer’s warranties/guarantees which are wider in scope, and/or longer in duration, than the 6 month warranty generally provided (as discussed above).  Consequently, if a defect is discovered AFTER 6 months from delivery, you could still rely on the following:

•    Electronic hardware manufacturer guarantees are normally a 1 year repair guarantee.  Your remedy under such Electronic Hardware Manufacturer Guarantee is restricted to the costs of repair or replacement of faulty goods or granting of a credit at the sole discretion of In2sports.co.za and/or its suppliers after investigation and/or testing of goods.

•    All Electronic Hardware Manufacturer Guarantees are immediately null and void should any equipment be tampered with, or the seals on equipment be broken by anyone other than the manufacturer’s representative, or the goods be operated outside the manufacturer’s specifications.

•    Under no circumstances will in2sports.co.za  or the manufacturer be liable for any damage arising from any misuse or abuse of the goods.

•    No writable media CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-RW may be returned under an Electronic Hardware Manufacturer Guarantee.  

•    Personal Training, Dietary, Navigational and Other Software:  software may be exchanged for the same game/software, but no refunds will be payable.

•    Photographic and Video Equipment:  The Manufacturer warranties on Photographic Equipment (“Photographic Equipment Warranty”) endure for a period of 1 year from the date of purchase (“Photographic Equipment Warranty Period”) against defects in workmanship and materials.  To obtain service under this warranty, the product together with the original invoice and proof of payment must be sent back to in2sports.co.za .  The Photographic Equipment Warranty does not cover 

-         routine cleaning or normal cosmetic and mechanical wear and tear;

-         damages, defects or unsatisfactory performance caused by the attachment of lenses, flashes or other accessories not produced by the same company as the product purchased; or

-         damages, defects or unsatisfactory performance caused by repairs performed by any party other than a facility authorized by In2sports.co.za  (as listed on the Website).
