(2) Parts repaired or replaced during the Warranty Period will be warranted for the remainder of the original Warranty Period of the Product or for ninety (90) days from the date of repair or replacement, whichever is longer.

(3) Replacement or repaired products, as applicable, will be returned to you as soon as commercially practicable. All parts of the Product or other equipment that we replace shall become our property.

 

5. WHAT IS NOT COVERED?

(1) This Limited Warranty does not apply to batteries, accessories or other consumable items, such as filters, brushes, dirt disposal bags, cleaning pads or cleaning solutions.

(2) Unless agreed in writing, the Limited Warranty will not apply if the defect(s) relate to: (a) normal wear and tear, (b) defects caused by rough or inappropriate handling or use, or damage caused by accident, misuse, neglect, fire, water, lightning or other acts of nature, (c) non-compliance with the Product instructions, (d) wilful or deliberate damage, neglect or negligence; (e) use of spare parts, an unauthorised cleaning solution, if applicable, or other replacement items (including consumables) that are not provided or recommended by Us; (f) any alteration or modification to the Product that has been carried out by you or a third party not authorised by us, (g) any failure to adequately package the Product for transportation, (h) extreme or external causes beyond our reasonable control, including, but not limited to, breakdowns, fluctuations or interruptions in electric power, ISP (Internet service provider) service or wireless networks, (i) weak and/or inconsistent wireless signal strength in your home.

7. ADDITIONAL TERMS

For products purchased in France, the following terms also apply:

Le vendeur livre un bien conforme au contrat et répond des défauts de conformité existant lors de la délivrance.

Il répond également des défauts de conformité résultant de l’emballage, des instructions de montage ou de l’installation lorsque celle-ci a été mise à sa charge par le contrat ou a été réalisée sous sa responsabilité (article L. 217-4 du Code de la Consommation).

Le bien est conforme au contrat:

1 s’il est propre à l’usage habituellement attendu d’un bien semblable et, le cas échéant:

- s’il correspond à la description donnée par le vendeur et possède les qualités que celui-ci a présentées à l’acheteur sous forme d’échantillon ou de modèle;

- s’il présente les qualités qu’un acheteur peut légitimement attendre eu égard aux déclarations publiques faites par le vendeur, par le producteur ou par son représentant, notamment dans la publicité ou l’étiquetage;

2 Ou s’il présente les caractéristiques définies d’un commun accord par les parties ou être propre à tout usage spécial recherché par l’acheteur, porté à la connaissance du vendeur et que ce dernier a accepté (article L. 217-5 du Code de la Consommation).

L’action résultant du défaut de conformité se prescrit par deux ans à compter de la délivrance du bien (article L. 217-12 du Code de la Consommation).

Lorsque l’acheteur demande au vendeur, pendant le cours de la garantie commerciale qui lui a été consentie lors de l’acquisition ou de la réparation d’un bien meuble, une remise en état couverte par la garantie, toute période d’immobilisation d’au moins sept jours vient s’ajouter à la durée de la garantie qui restait à courir. Cette période court à compter de la demande d’intervention de l’acheteur ou de la mise à disposition pour réparation du bien en cause, si cette mise à disposition est postérieure à la demande d’intervention (article L. 217-16 du Code de la Consommation).

Le vendeur est tenu de la garantie à raison des défauts cachés de la chose vendue qui la rendent impropre à l’usage auquel on la destine, ou qui diminuent tellement cet usage que l’acheteur ne l’aurait pas acquise, ou n’en aurait donné qu’un moindre prix, s’il les avait connus (article 1641 du Code Civil).

L’action résultant des vices rédhibitoires doit être intentée par l’acquéreur dans un délai de deux ans à compter de la découverte du vice (article 1648 du Code Civil, alinéa 1er).
