BARESQUE - EXPRESS WARRANTY
Products sold by Baresque Australia Pty Limited ABN 39 097 110 846 (Baresque) and its subsidiaries come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under Australian Consumer Law.

In addition to all rights and remedies to which consumers may be entitled under Australian Consumer Law and any other relevant legislation, Baresque offers a further express warranty on the terms set out below (Express Warranty).
The benefits given to consumers by this Express Warranty are in addition to other rights and remedies that may be available under a law in relation to the products to which this Express Warranty relates.

Warranty Claim Process
To make a warranty claim please ensure you have the following information:
Proof of purchase (copy of invoice, point of sale receipt or sales order);
Image and description of fault;
Address where the product is currently located; and
Contact details of the claimant (must correspond to the purchaser’s details).
Then please contact Baresque on 1300 306 399 or via email at email@example.com with the details of warranty claim. Baresque will usually respond within two (2) working days. Given the nature of the products sold and location of our manufacturing partners, warranty claims are usually finalised within 30 days if the products or parts are located in Australia. However if the product requires repair using parts that need to be sourced internationally or the product needs to be replaced, this could take up to 3 months.
Note that the customer is responsible for the cost of delivering the product to Baresque and picking it up once the warranty process is complete. If the warranty claim is approved by Baresque, the costs of providing the remedies as set out in this Express Warranty will be covered by Baresque.
