Europe and Africa Limited Warranty
The terms of this Plantronics Limited Warranty shall apply to Plantronics products purchased within Europe and Africa.
What is the Warranty Period?
Plantronics offers a ninety (90) day, one (1), two (2) or three (3) year limited warranty depending on the product. The warranty period is stated on the product box and in the in-box collaterals. The warranty period starts on the date of purchase of a brand new, unused product by the initial first end user. Plantronics will require copy of the original proof of purchase of the initial first end user as a condition of receiving warranty service. Please note that the duration of the warranty depends on the laws of your country. We strongly advise you to keep your receipt of purchase in order to prove the date of purchase of this product.
Plantronics warrants that the products are free from defects in materials and workmanship, with its obligations under this warranty being limited (save in the case of sole gross negligence causing death or personal injury) to repair or replacement at its own expense provided a claim is made within the warranty period applicable to the product.
What Plantronics Will Do to Correct Problems?
Pursuant to this limited warranty, Plantronics will, at its option, repair or replace products (a) with new or previously used products, parts, or components equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (b) with re-manufactured products using new components or new and used or reconditioned components equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (c) with a product equivalent to an original product that has been discontinued.
Refund of the price paid is applicable only in cases provided in the applicable law and provided that the product is returned to the point of purchase or such other place as Plantronics may direct with a copy of the sales receipt. Shipping and handling charges may apply except where prohibited by applicable law. When a product or part is replaced, the replacement item becomes your property and the returned product or part becomes the property of Plantronics. All products received by Plantronics for replacement will become the property of Plantronics.
For products sold with customized, user-replaceable batteries manufactured by Plantronics, in the event the battery fails during the Warranty Period, Plantronics will replace the battery. For products sold with batteries that are not user-replaceable, in the event the battery fails during the Warranty Period, Plantronics will replace the product.
What is the Period of Coverage?
In the unlikely event that your product has recurring failures or Plantronics is unable to repair or replace the product, Plantronics will provide you with a replacement product selected by Plantronics that is the same or equivalent to your product in performance. This is your exclusive remedy for a defective product.
Any replaced/repaired product will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period or:
- a) 30 days of the original 90 days warranty, or
