Conditions of Warranty
- The consumer must retain proof of purchase for the warranty period.
- The warranty period of one (1) year is valid from the original date of purchase of the product. Read below for specific details on 'Lifetime Warranty'.
- This warranty extends only to the defects in material or workmanship occurring under normal use of the product.
- The product was purchased directly from incipio.com.au website or an authorised retailer we have approved.
Incipio warrants the product you purchased (“Product”) against defects in materials and workmanship for a period one (1) year from the date of original purchase ("Warranty Period") when the Product is purchased through www.incipio.com.au, www.incipio.co.nz or an authorised reseller. If a defect arises and a valid claim is received by Incipio within the Warranty Period, at its option, Incipio will replace the Product with a functionally equivalent new product. Incipio warrants repaired Products and replacement products provided hereunder against defects in materials and workmanship from the date of the repair or replacement for ninety (90) days or, if longer, for the remainder of the Warranty Period. If the Product is exchanged, the replacement product becomes your property and the product becomes Incipio's property.
Incipio warrants the following products, when purchased through an authorized reseller, with a Lifetime Warranty (“Limited Lifetime Warranty”): Slim, Grip, Stashback, Duo and Organicore phone cases. This Limited Lifetime Warranty is for the life of the product covered by the warranty. Over time products are subject to normal wear and tear and may become obsolete due to advances in technology, therefore, this Limited Lifetime Warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, or damage to any non-Incipio product used in connection with an Incipio product. This Limited Lifetime Warranty covers the lifespan of various products, not the life of the purchaser or any other individual. Considering the foregoing, Incipio has determined that the reasonable lifespan of the products covered by this Limited Lifetime Warranty to be seven (7) years from the original date of purchase of the product from an authorized reseller. During the time the Limited Lifetime Warranty is in effect, Incipio warrants its products against defects in materials and workmanship. Incipio will replace a product if the product does not perform as intended due to defective parts or workmanship. This Limited Lifetime Warranty does not extend to instances where the product is damaged through use for which it was not intended, such as misuse, mishandling, removal and/or re-installation, neglect, accident, tampering, unauthorized modification or alteration.
Exclusions and Limitations
Incipio's limited warranty applies only to the Product when purchased from www.incipio.com.au, www.incipio.co.nz or an authorised retailer approved by Incipio. The warranty does not apply to any non-Incipio product, even if packaged or sold with the Product. The warranty excludes without limitation any scratching or surface damage to any non-Incipio product, even if packaged or sold with the Product. This warranty applies only to the normal use of the Product, normal wear and tear, dirt, stains and finish damage excepted, in accordance with written use instructions, if any, provided with the Product (either in writing or through a hyperlink to such instructions). This warranty does not apply to damage caused by accident, abuse, misuse, or modification of the Product.
