SERVICES PROVIDED UNDER THIS SERVICE CONTRACT:
1. Service Provision.

Authorized third party providers may collect the needed information from you to setup your service and to fulfill the obligations on Our behalf.

The Service Contract Term is continuous month to month until cancelled by either you or us.
3. What is Covered?
3.1 Hardware Service. If during the Service Contract Term, you submit a valid claim on the Covered Device to notify us that (i) a defect in materials and workmanship has arisen, we will arrange a service event to either: (i) repair the defect, using new or refurbished parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) exchange the Covered Device, with a replacement that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability.
All replacements provided under this Service Contract will, at a minimum, be functionally equivalent to the original Covered Device. If we exchange the Covered Device, the original becomes Our property and the replacement becomes your property, with coverage for the replacement device effective for the remaining portion of the Service Contract Term.
There is no service fee for Hardware Service repairs or replacements, only during the Manufacture Limited Warranty.
3.2 Accidental Damage from Handling. If during the Service Contract Term, you submit a valid claim on the Covered Device to notify us of a failure due to accidental damage from handling (“ADH”), We will, subject to the service fee described below, either (i) repair the defect using new or refurbished parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) exchange the Covered Device with a replacement product that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability.
ADH coverage only applies to an operational or mechanical failure caused by an accident from handling that is the result of an unexpected and unintentional external event (for example, drops and damage caused by liquid contact other than because of defect in material or workmanship) that arises from your normal daily usage of the Covered Device as intended.
We may ask you to provide an explanation of where and when the accident occurred with a detailed description of the actual event. We will deny the claim if you fail to pay the service fee or fail to provide information relating to the accident when asked.
You will be assessed a non-refundable service fee each time an ADH repair or replacement is completed.

6. Service Options.
6.1 Repairs will be performed by Telispire. Service will be available and rendered during the regular working hours and work week of the repair centers. Following Our diagnosis and claim approval, we will, at Our option, setup one of the following service events:
- Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Devices. If we determine that your Covered Device is eligible for mail-in service, we will send you a prepaid shipping label (and, if needed, packaging material) for you to ship the Covered Device to an authorized repair center according to the instructions provided by us. Once service is complete, we will return the Covered Device to you. We will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.
- Service where we require return of the replaced Covered Device or part. We may require a credit card authorization or other method to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement Covered Device or part and applicable shipping costs. We will ship a replacement device or part to you with installation instructions, if applicable, and any requirements for the return of the replaced Covered Device or part. If you follow the instructions, the credit card authorization will be cancelled, so you will not be charged for the replacement Covered Device or part and the shipping to and from your location. If you fail to return the replaced device or part as instructed or return a replaced device or part that is ineligible for service, we will charge the credit card for the authorized amount. If you are not able to provide credit card authorization, this service may not be available to you, and we will offer an alternative service option.
- Service where we do not require the return of the original Covered Device or part. We will ship you free of charge a replacement Covered Device or part accompanied by instructions for installation, if applicable, and any requirements for the disposal of the replaced Covered Device or part. Neither we nor our third-party providers are responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service. Should you require further assistance, you should contact us, at the telephone number listed above.
6.2 We reserve the right to change the method by which we may provide repair or replacement service to you, and your Covered Device’s eligibility to receive a particular method of service. Service will be limited to the options available from us in the country where you request service. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary according to country. If service is not available for the Covered Device in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service to a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you must comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T., and other associated taxes and charges. We may repair or exchange the Covered Device or its parts with a comparable device or parts that comply with the local standards of the countries where you request service.
