What Will We Do to Correct Problems
During the Warranty Period Plantronics will repair or replace, at its option, products that manifest defects in materials or workmanship if you provide notice to Plantronics and return the product to Plantronics in the manner described below.
Plantronics may repair or replace products under this Limited Warranty (a) with new or reconditioned products, parts, or components, or (b) with a product similar to an original product that has been discontinued. If these replaced or repaired products, parts or components manifest a defect in materials or workmanship during the greater of 12 months following their repair and/or replacement, or during the remainder of the Warranty Period for the product they replaced or in which they were installed, Plantronics, at its discretion, will repair or replace these products or parts.
For products sold with customized, user-replaceable batteries manufactured by Plantronics, in the event the battery fails during the Warranty Period, Plantronics will replace the battery. For products sold with batteries that are not user-replaceable, in the event the battery fails during the Warranty Period, Plantronics will replace the product.
When a product or part is replaced, the replacement item becomes your property and the returned product or part becomes the property of Plantronics.
In the unlikely event that your product has recurring failures or Plantronics is unable to repair or replace the product, Plantronics will provide you with a replacement product selected by Plantronics that is the same or similar to your product in performance. This is your exclusive remedy for a defective product.
