What will happen in the event of a warranty claim?
If, during the warranty period you submit a claim which does not breach the terms as stated above, Sala Phones will, at its option:
- Repair the product using new or previously used parts that are equivalent in performance, reliability and physical condition to parts which would have been provided within the product at the original point of purchase (given the age and grade of device as advertised at the original point of purchase), or
- Replace the product with the same model (or with your consent a product that Sala Phones deems as similar in performance and functionality) formed from new and/or previously used parts that are equivalent in performance, reliability and physical condition to parts which would have been provided within the product at the original point of purchase (given the age and grade of device as advertised at the original point of purchase), or
- Refund your purchase price in exchange for the return of your original product
When a product or part is replaced or a refund provided, any replacement item becomes your property and the replaced or refunded item becomes Sala Phones’ property. A replacement part or product or a repaired Sala Phones product assumes the remaining warranty of the original Sala Phones product.
In all cases, we will inspect the product in order to verify the fault. If the fault cannot be verified, we may, at our discretion, return the product to you and close your claim.
