Durafence liabilities are limited solely and exclusively to the obligations specifically undertaken herein, and under no circumstances will Durafence be liable or obligated for any incidental, consequential, indirect, special, punitive or any other damages of any kind whatsoever (including, but not limited to, lost profits, lost sales, loss of goodwill, use of money, use of goods, stoppage of work, or impairment of assets), whether foreseeable or unforeseeable, arising out of breach or failure of express or implied warranty, breach of contract, fraud, misrepresentation, negligence, strict liability in tort or otherwise, except and only to the extent this limitation is specifically precluded by applicable law of mandatory application.

This writing is understood and intended to be the final expression of the parties’ agreement and is a complete and exclusive statement of the terms and conditions with respect thereto, superseding all prior agreements or representations, oral or written, and all other communication between the parties relating to the subject matter of this agreement.

Procedure for Making a Warranty Claim
 
If a defect appears within the periods from the date of original customer purchase, the Purchaser shall notify Durabuild™ in writing within thirty (30) days from the discovery of the alleged defect, and, upon confirmation by an authorised Durabuild™ representative of the defect, Durafence sole responsibility shall be, at its option, to either replace the defective Product or refund a percentage of the portion of the purchase price paid by the Purchaser for such defective Product (not including the cost of its initial installation). This warranty shall not cover, and Durafence shall not be responsible for, costs and expenses incurred with respect to the removal of defective Durafence products or the installation of replacement materials, including but not limited to, labour and freight. The foregoing remedies are the SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR BREACH OF ANY WARRANTY. This warranty may not be transferred to a subsequent buyer of the property upon which the Durafence products were originally installed. To make a claim under this limited warranty, the Purchaser shall send to Durafence, within the warranty period referred to above, a description of the claimed defect and proof of purchase, to the following address: Durafence Ltd, Box 18050, Glen Innes, Auckland.
