(g) Exclusion of Other Warranties: Any condition or warranty other than those relating to the title of the Products which might otherwise be implied or incorporated within these Terms by reason of statute or common law or otherwise is expressly excluded to the extent permitted by law.
(h) Legality of Use of Scooters: Obtain Group Limited believes that the Storm Cruiser and Storm Compact electric scooters fit within the guidelines of the Mobility Device category of NZTA as stated here: https://www.nzta.govt.nz/vehicles/vehicle-types/low-powered-vehicles/mobility-scooters/ however Obtain Group Limited disclaims any and all responsibility or liability for any illegal use and makes no claim as to the certainty or reliability of the legality of use of a Storm Electric Scooter of any type or model in any circumstance or use case, the individual owner accepts full reponsibility for ensuring the legality of their use of any product sold by Obtain Group Limited.
UPDATE: NZTA have provided additional information regarding the Mobility Device class and based on this unpublished and previously unavailable new information, which runs contrary to the published and available information and public statements of the NZTA, it now would appear that the Storm Scooters are currently not considered Mobility Devices under the discretion of the NZTA - we contest this and are in ongoing active talks with the NZTA, and are taking other professional advice in regards to the matter.
Other modern personal transport devices have recently been caught up in such decisions such as Segway - who ended up winning their Court case, but are still in a form of limbo with their legal status.
The NZTA are in a process of review of their quidelines and decisions regarding many vehicle categories such as Mobility and Low Powered, we await further information and in the meantime are pursuing LA Moped status
- NOTE: that this would require a drivers licence and a Rego.
Please consider this information before purchasing.
