(2). IMPORTED “CONTROLLED” ITEMS.
GENERAL STARLIGHT COMPANY INCORPORATED (GSCI) equipment is imported on a CANADIAN GOVERNMENT EXPORT CERTIFICATE as a controlled item, and once a request to purchase has been accepted by AUSTRALIAN NIGHT VISION and the order is placed with GSCI, it is then binding and cannot be varied or altered under GSCI terms & conditions of sale unless specifically authorized.
Pricing is shown in $US on this site, and the current $Au will apply at the time of money transfer to Canada. Australian GST will be added, calculated on the day on clearing Australian Customs.
Variations of price can occur rapidly due to the US/Au dollar value fluctuations, the final price will be adjusted accordingly, prior to delivery.
Where, if with prior agreement, a deposit or part payment only, is paid to AUSTRALIAN NIGHT VISION/AUSTRALIAN SHOOTING SERVICES for any item/s, the "purchaser" named on the invoice shall forfeit that deposit or part payment, should the "purchaser" fail to complete the invoiced sale within 30 days of notification, for any reason whatsoever.
The "purchaser" will then also be liable for all additional associated costs incurred by AUSTRALIAN NIGHT VISION/AUSTRALIAN SHOOTING SERVICES, including, but not limited to, freight and insurance of that item to Australia, Australian Goods and Services Tax, Customs brokerage costs.

(3). A PURCHASERS UNDERSTANDING.
A purchaser*, is deemed to be the person/organization named on the invoice, and/or include any person who places an order on behalf of the purchaser, whether authorized or not, may also be held responsible for that purchase.
As Australian Night Vision can only offer guidance to a purchaser, we therefore cannot and do not guarantee individual suitability.
A purchaser must assure themselves that their choice of product will fulfill their own requirements, as those requirements will vary greatly from user to user.
The purchaser must also be fully aware of the fact that all classes of IMAGE INTENSIFYING, THERMAL IMAGING & DIGITAL devices, performance WILL vary considerably under differing atmospheric conditions, and does NOT constitute faulty equipment.
Regardless of claims made by some, stating that thermal imaging is not affected by smoke, fog, rain etc., it is important to be aware that all of those situations will affect the performance of all grades of thermal imaging by varying degrees, dependent on the prevailing conditions. As it will with all other types of night vision products.
Humidity, even atmospheric pressure will alter the performance to some extent.
It is claimed at times by various sources, that thermal imaging will “see through thick bushes etc., unlike other forms of night vision".
Anything that completely shields an object/target or any part thereof, will prevent it, or that part, being seen with all optical devices.
More details and explanation of specifications used with all night vision & thermal imaging equipment can be found in the "Night Vision Information" pages on this site.
It should be understood that all products on this site will need to be returned to the manufacturer for repair during and/or after the warranty period has expired and therefore normally entail delays in servicing of products from the service center.
The purchaser should be aware they will be liable for the cost of freight and insurance to the manufacturer as per their warranty statement and for any non-warranty repair.
It is therefore understood by all parties that -
THE PURCHASER HAS AGREED TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS PRIOR TO MAKING A PURCHASE.
PRICES AND SPECIFICATIONS CAN CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. IMAGES ARE INDICATIVE & THE PRODUCT MAY VARY SLIGHTLY.
