SOME STATES (COUNTRIES AND PROVINCES) DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION MAY LAST, SO THE LIMITATIONS DESCRIBED ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM STATE TO STATE (OR BY COUNTRY OR PROVINCE).

This Limited Warranty for the hardware product is limited to the terms set forth herein. VTech warrants the VTech Branded Product (as hereinafter defined and referred to as the “Product”) against defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of THREE (3) MONTHS from the date of retail purchased by the original purchaser (“Warranty Period”). If a Product defect arises and a valid claim is received by us within the Warranty Period, VTech will, at its discretion and to the extent permitted by law, replace the Product with a product that is new or refurbished that is equivalent to new in performance and reliability and is at least functionally equivalent to the original product. A replacement product or part assumes the remaining Warranty Period of the original product or 30 days from the date of replacement, whichever provides a longer period of coverage. Replacement may consist of replacement by like product or by product of comparable value.
Prior to returning a product for any reason, please notify VTech HK Consumer Services Department at (852) 3612-9851.
