1. Introduction to the FLIR Maritime Global Limited Warranty

FLIR Maritime’s Global Limited Warranty is effective for qualifying products purchased on or after 1st August 2017. FLIR Systems, Inc. and its affiliates (“FLIR”) warrants FLIR Maritime products purchased directly from FLIR, from an approved FLIR dealer (visit flir.com/marine/dealerlocator to find and contact your local approved FLIR dealer), or installed on a new vessel by an authorized boat builder, known as the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) (the “Products”), to be free from defects in material and workmanship for;

  1. Cooled Sensor Products for one (1) year (“Cooled Sensor Limited Warranty Period”); and
  2. Uncooled Sensor Products for two (2) years (“Standard Limited Warranty Period”); from

(a) the date the Products were first purchased; or (b) in the case of Products installed on a new vessel by an authorized OEM, the date the vessel was first delivered (the “Purchase Date”) to the first retail customer (the “Original Customer”).

All prior FLIR Maritime warranty policies, procedures and points of contact are superseded and replaced by this FLIR Maritime Global Limited Warranty.

Except for Warranty Replacement Product, Refurbished Product and Cooled Sensor Product, by registering your new Product with FLIR Maritime, you can upgrade the 2-year Standard Limited Warranty to a 3-year Extended Limited Warranty at no additional cost.

In some countries and for some Products, FLIR also offers a Warranty Replacement service and On-Board Warranty. These services, when available, are designed to help minimize the down-time of Products that may require warranty repair.

Your Proof of Purchase documentation is important. Please keep it in a safe place. If you need a warranty service your proof of purchase will be required.

FLIR Products are not a substitute for possessing and exercising the independent judgment and skill needed to safely and effectively operate any vessel or engage in any marine activity.


2. GLOBAL LIMITED WARRANTY STATEMENT

THE LIMITED WARRANTIES AND REMEDIES IN THE GLOBAL LIMITED WARRANTY ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES EXPRESS OR IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING ANY LIABILITY ARISING UNDER ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE. THIS WARRANTY GIVES THE OWNER SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, WHICH MAY VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION.

IN NO EVENT SHALL FLIR SYSTEMS, INC. OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER RESULTING FROM THE USE, MISUSE, INABILITY TO USE, IMPROPER RELIANCE ON, OR FROM ANY DEFECTS IN THE PRODUCT. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION ON INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

THE GLOBAL LIMITED WARRANTY DOES NOT AFFECT A CUSTOMER'S RIGHTS AGAINST A RETAILER ARISING FROM A SALES/PURCHASE CONTRACT.

FLIR, IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION, RETAINS THE RIGHT TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THE PRODUCT, WHICH, IN THE ABSENCE OF ANY APPLICABLE LAW TO THE CONTRARY, SHALL BE THE CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY.

PRODUCT REPAIRED OR REPLACED UNDER WARRANTY WILL BE WARRANTED ONLY FOR THE REMAINING BALANCE OF THE APPLICABLE ORIGINAL STANDARD LIMITED WARRANTY PERIOD OR EXTENDED LIMITED WARRANTY PERIOD.


3. 1-Year Cooled Sensor Limited Warranty

Subject to the terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions in the Global Limited Warranty, all Cooled Sensor Products are warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship for a period of one (1) year from the date the Product was purchased by the Original Customer (the “Cooled Sensor Limited Warranty Period”). During this period and for the Original Customer, FLIR will, at its sole option, repair or replace any components that fail in normal use.

If the Cooled Sensor Limited Warranty applies to you, FLIR will not charge you for parts or labour for warranty repairs or replacements. However, the cost of transporting your warranted Product to FLIR for repair or replacement is your responsibility and is not covered by FLIR.


4. 2-Year Standard Limited Warranty

Subject to the terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions in the Global Limited Warranty, all FLIR Maritime Uncooled Sensor Products are warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship for a period of two (2) years from the date the Product was purchased by the Original Customer (the “Standard Limited Warranty Period”). During this period and for the Original Customer, FLIR will, at its sole option, repair or replace any components that fail in normal use.

If the Standard Limited Warranty applies to you, FLIR will not charge you for parts or labour for warranty repairs or replacements. However, the cost of transporting your warranted Maritime Product to FLIR for repair or replacement is your responsibility and is not covered by FLIR.

Some customers may have the option to purchase a Refurbished FLIR Maritime Uncooled Sensor Product instead of a new Product, typically at a reduced price. A Refurbished FLIR Maritime Product is a product that was repaired or rebuilt and fully tested by FLIR to ensure that it meets all Product performance specifications. A Refurbished FLIR Maritime Product may have observable cosmetic blemishes, but such blemishes will in no way affect product performance.

This 2-Year Standard Limited Warranty applies equally to both new Uncooled Sensor Maritime Products and Refurbished Uncooled Sensor Maritime Products, except that observable cosmetic blemishes not affecting product performance on any Refurbished Product that a customer chooses to purchase are expressly excluded from warranty coverage.


5. 3-Year Extended Limited Warranty

Subject to the terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions in the Global Limited Warranty, and excluding Warranty Replacement Product, Refurbished Product and Cooled Sensor Products, all new Maritime Products registered with FLIR within ninety (90) days from the date the product was first purchased by the Original Customer are warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship for a period of three (3) years from the date the Product was purchased by the Original Customer (the “Extended Limited Warranty Period”). During this period and for the Original Customer, FLIR will, at its sole option, repair or replace any Product components that fail in normal use. Upon successful registration of the Product, the 3-Year Extended Limited Warranty replaces the 2-Year Standard Limited Warranty.

If the Extended Limited Warranty applies to you, FLIR will not charge you for parts or labour for warranty repairs or replacements. However, the cost of transporting your warranted Product to FLIR for repair or replacement is your responsibility and is not covered by FLIR.

Cooled Sensor Products that are covered under FLIR’S 1-Year Cooled Sensor Limited Warranty Period (see Section 3 “1-Year Cooled Sensor Limited Warranty”), Refurbished Products that are covered under FLIR’S 2-Year Standard Limited Warranty (see Section 4, “2-Year Standard Limited Warranty”) and Warranty Replacement Product (see Section 7 “Procedures for Standard and Extended Limited Warranty Returns, Repairs and Replacements”) are not eligible for the 3-Year Extended Limited Warranty upgrade.

11. Out-of-Warranty and Non-Warranty Evaluation, Service and Repair

FLIR may, in its sole discretion, agree to evaluate for potential service or repair a product that is out-of-warranty or not covered under warranty. For information on obtaining out-of-warranty or non-warranty service or repair, contact your local certified FLIR dealer by visiting flir.com/marine/dealerlocator or by contacting FLIR Customer Service at flir.com/CustomerRepair.

If you need to return your Product to FLIR, this must be done through the FLIR Customer Portal at flir.com/CustomerRepair. Products must only be returned when you have received a notification number.
