Vega Technik GmbH does not accept responsibility for damage that has been caused by the improper handling of magnets. With the purchase of this magnet you confirm that you have read, understood and acted on the following warnings.
When magnets are brought close enough they can have a surprising power. Finger are quickly caught between them which could cause a painful nip or even a blood blister. Do not place these magnets up your nose or around the ears.
Magnetically sensitive Items:
Keep a safe distance (>50mm) between the magnets and all objects that can be damaged by magnetism. These include mechanical watches, heart pacemakers, CRT monitors and televisions, credit cards, diskettes and other magnetically stored media.
Keep magnets away from heart pacemakers. The operation of heart pacemakers will be affected by the close proximity of a magnet. Magnets can set a pacemaker working in a way that is not suitable for the pacemaker user and that might affect their health.
Danger for children:
Ensure that children under 16 are not allowed to play with magnets and children over 16 are told about the potential danger of the magnets and supervised by an adult who has read and understood these warnings. If two or more small magnets are swallowed, they could attract each other trough the walls of the intestines, this would cause major swelling, life-threatening injuries and need surgery to remove them. Please do everything possible to make sure children cannot swallow the magnets.
Many of our magnets have coatings that contain nickel. Some people have an allergic reaction when they come into contact with nickel. Nickel allergies could develop from constant contact with nickel-plated objects. Avoid constant skin contact with nickel-plated magnets. Avoid contact with magnets if you already have a nickel allergy.
Magnetic fields of improperly packaged magnets could influence airplane navigation devices. In the worst cases it could lead to an accident. Airfreight magnets only in packaging with sufficient magnetic shieling, please refer to the respective regulation. More information is available on the IATA website (www.iata.org) or from your designated carrier.
