TYPES OF WARRANTY SERVICES

 

The types of warranty support service that may be applicable to the Products you have purchased are described below.

 

Return-to-base Warranty services

 

“Return-to-base” warranty services mean repairing service for your products by the Authorized Service Provider’s technicians Where the Warranty service type is “Return-to-base”, you will be responsible for transporting the product for service to and from the Authorized Service Provider’s service center.

 

You will need to include your proof of purchase with the warranted product. Damage caused during transportation by failing to package the product correctly will not be covered by this Warranty.

 

Onsite Warranty services

 

“On-site” warranty services means repairing services for your products performed by the Authorized Service Provider’s technicians at the customer’s designed place (but limited to areas designated by Brother or the Authorized Service Provider). Contact the Authorized Service Provider to find out if you are within an area where the on-site Warranty service is available.

 

If you are outside a service area and if we agree to provide on-site warranty service, you will be responsible for travel charges for the service. Alternatively, you may elect to apply the Return-to-base terms.

BROTHER MAKES NO OTHER EXPRESS WARRANTY OR CONDITION WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL AND, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, BROTHER EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS NOT STATED IN THIS WARRANTY. SOME STATES OR COUNTRIES DO NOT ALLOW A LIMITATION ON IMPLIED WARRANTY OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF PARTICULAR TYPES OF DAMAGE, INCLUDING INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES FOR CONSUMER PRODUCTS. IN SUCH STATES OR COUNTRIES, SOME EXCLUSIONS, DISCLAIMERS OR LIMITATIONS OF THIS WARRANTY MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

 

TO THE EXTENT THAT THE ABOVE WARRANTY SERVICES AND TERMS OR ANY PART THEREOF IS INCONSISTENT WITH LOCAL LAW, THE WARRANTY SERVICES AND TERMS OR THE CORRESPONDING PART SHALL BE DEEMED MODIFIED TO BE CONSISTENT WITH SUCH LOCAL LAW. EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT LAWFULLY PERMITTED, THIS WARRANTY DO NOT EXCLUDE, RESTRICT, OR MODIFY BUT ARE IN ADDITION TO THE MANDATORY STATUTORY CONSUMER RIGHTS APPLICABLE TO THE SALE OF THIS PRODUCT TO YOU.

 

REPLACEMENT/REFUND

 

To the extent permitted by local law, Products presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished products of the same type, rather than being repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair the products. To the extent permitted by local law, replacement of the product or a part does not extend or restart the Warranty period.

 

If a product presented for repair is capable of retaining user-generated data, you are advised that repair of the product may result in loss of the data.

 

All component parts or hardware products removed under this Warranty become the property of Brother unless otherwise stipulated by applicable local law.

 

In the unlikely event that your Product has recurring failures or Brother determines it is unable to repair or replace the Product, Brother, at its option, may elect to give you a refund or credit of your purchase price instead of a replacement. To the extent permitted by local law, this is your exclusive remedy for defective products.

 

Some states or countries do not allow the above exclusion or limitation, so this exclusion and limitation may be limited in its application to you.

 

REIMBURSEMENTS

 

Brother or its authorized service providers, to the extent permitted by local law, may seek reimbursement from you of any reasonable costs incurred by them if the products are found to be in good working order, the problem is not a consequence of a defect or manufacturing fault or where any of the warranty exclusions and limitations apply. Reasonable costs may include transportation costs and parts and labor costs.
