What does this Limited Warranty cover?
Bullitt Mobile Limited (“Bullitt”) warrants to the original consumer purchaser (“you”) that the Mobile Phone accompanying this warranty, and any in-box accessories that accompany it (the “Products”), will be free of substantial defects in material and workmanship for a period noted in the Appendix beginning from the date of original consumer purchase (“Warranty Period”).
This warranty only applies to the first purchaser, and begins on the original date of purchase by such first purchaser. This warranty does not apply to products that are resold (as used, refurbished, or otherwise) to a second purchaser. In the event of a dispute as to whether the phone was resold, if the date when the phone was first activated precedes the date of purchase by the second purchaser, such phone shall be deemed to have been resold, and this warranty shall not apply.
Repairs made by Bullitt or its authorized Service Provider under this Limited Warranty (“Warranty Service”) are covered for the balance of the original Warranty Period, or for the period noted in the Appendix, whichever is longer. This Limited Warranty covers only a purchase of new Products from Bullitt or an authorized reseller or authorized distributor of Bullitt Products which are accompanied in-box by this written Limited Warranty. This Limited Warranty is personal to you and not transferable. No retailer or other third party is authorized to make any representations on behalf of Bullitt or to modify this Limited Warranty.
THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY BY STATE, PROVINCE OR COUNTRY (SUCH AS THE LEGAL WARRANTY IN BRAZIL). FOR CONSUMERS WHO ARE COVERED BY CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS OR REGULATIONS IN THEIR COUNTRY OF PURCHASE OR, IF DIFFERENT, THEIR COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE, THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS LIMITED WARRANTY ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES CONVEYED BY SUCH CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS AND REGULATIONS. FOR A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF YOUR RIGHTS YOU SHOULD CONSULT THE LAWS OF YOUR COUNTRY, PROVINCE OR STATE.
What will we do if you make a claim under this Limited Warranty?
If you make a valid claim under this Limited Warranty, Bullitt or its Authorized Service Provider will, at their discretion, either (1) repair the Product using new, used, or reconditioned replacement parts; or (2) replace the Product with a new or “like new” reconditioned Product that is the same or similar to the warranted Product; or (3) refund the purchase price. Repaired or replaced products will be returned to you in their original factory configuration, plus any applicable software updates, which may affect use and/or compatibility with third party applications (for which Bullitt shall have no liability). Any refunded or replaced Product shall become the property of Bullitt. To obtain service under this Limited Warranty, the claim should be made in the country where the Product was intended for sale; otherwise repair services may be limited to the options available in the country where the service is requested.
Bullitt manufactures devices which have or may have country or regional specific elements, and therefore Bullitt cannot guarantee to support variants of a device imported into a country or region when that variant was not intended for sale in a particular country or region. Please always make sure you are buying the correct variant of a device for your particular region/country. In order for you to obtain service repairs under this warranty, Bullitt may require you to send your device to the country / region where it was intended for sale, and you shall be solely responsible for any transit costs for shipping to and from the authorized service center.
