If a manufacturing, material or workmanship defect arises regarding any Product, and a valid claim is received by Valeur Absolue no later than sixty (60) calendar days after the expiration of the applicable warranty period, Valeur Absolue will in its discretion: (1) replace the Product with a new Product. For purposes of this Limited Warranty, if the product is no longer being manufactured or is out of stock, we may replace your product with a comparable or improved product at our option. Valeur Absolue will make every effort to replace discontinued and limited edition products but cannot guarantee their availability for replacement. Any Valeur Absolue limited edition products or discontinued product still under warranty that cannot be replaced with an identical product will be replaced with the equivalent model based on availability. Replacement Products are warranted as above only for the remainder of the original applicable Warranty Period. We are not able to credit or refund products that have been opened or used. We will not pay shipping insurance, or transportation charges from you to us, or any import fees, duties or taxes. In the event of a defect, these are customer’s sole and exclusive remedies. This Limited Warranty is extended only to the original end-use customer, and will not be extended to any other person or transferee.
EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS
Except for the remedies expressly set forth above or to the extent restricted or prohibited by applicable law, the entire risk as to the quality and performance of the Products is with the customer, and the customer assumes the entire cost of repair should the Products prove defective following their purchase. In addition to and without limiting the generality of the foregoing disclaimers, this Limited Warranty does not, under any circumstances, cover defects resulting from: normal wear and tear or otherwise due to the normal aging of the Product; cosmetic damage, including but not limited to scratches, dents and broken plastic unless failure has occurred due to a defect in manufacturing, materials or workmanship; improper or unreasonable use or maintenance; failure to follow operating instructions; accident; excess moisture; insects; damage caused by accident, abuse, misuse, fire, lightning, earthquake, or other external cause; power surges; connections to improper voltage supply; unauthorized alteration or modification of original condition; damages caused by inadequate packing or shipping procedures; damages caused by use with non-Valeur Absolue products; Products that require modification or adaptation to enable them to operate in any country other than the country for which they were designed, manufactured, approved and/or authorized, or repair of products damaged by these modifications; and products purchased from unauthorized dealers that are not subject to Valeur Absolue’s quality controls.
