Read the fineprint:

Vango says:

All Vango products are ... guaranteed for the end purpose intended.

As part of our ongoing commitment we guarantee ..., excluding fair wear and tear[*] , ..

[*] this excludes all poles and fabric colour fading, ...

Ie if you use a tent they describe as being designed for festival and weekend use for your 5-week camping trip the guarantee is void. And if you pitch your tent and the wind breaks your cheap fibreglass poles you are screwed too, as they won't replace them either.
