The terms of this Poly Limited Warranty ("Limited Warranty") shall apply to purchases of Poly products.
Who Does This Limited Warranty Cover?
The original end user customer who purchased a Poly product.
What Products Does This Limited Warranty Cover?
This Limited Warranty covers Poly products purchased in original Poly packaging.
Poly products must have been purchased as new from Poly, a Poly affiliated company or a Poly authorized reseller. A list of Poly authorized resellers is located at https://partners.poly.com/English/directory/.
This Limited Warranty covers any defects in the materials used in the Poly product, and any defects in the workmanship during the manufacture of the Poly products.
What is the Period of Coverage?
The term of the Limited Warranty begins from the date of purchase by the original end user customer.
The dated sales receipt showing the date of purchase is the proof of purchase. We strongly advise you to keep your receipt of purchase in order to prove the date of purchase of the product.
The period of coverage varies by product and is generally 1, 2 or 3 years; consult your original Poly product packaging or user information provided by Poly at the time of purchase for the warranty term specific to your product or online at www.poly.com/support/ ("Warranty Period").
Poly's obligation under this Limited Warranty to repair or replace products that manifest a defect in materials or workmanship ceases upon the expiration of the Warranty Period.
You are responsible for shipping charges, insurance, and other transportation-related expenses incurred when returning products to Poly. If you return out-of-warranty products or products not covered under the Limited Warranty, you will be responsible for all return-shipping and other transportation-related expenses.
How to Obtain Warranty Service?
Before submitting a warranty claim for a Poly product, please visit www.poly.com/support/ for technical assistance.
You may obtain warranty support for valid warranty claims through your point of purchase during the first thirty (30) days after purchase. This warranty support may not always be available where you purchased the Poly product and, where it is available, the period may vary depending on where you purchased the Poly product. Please contact your point of purchase for more details.
Poly offers an online system for service requests. Please register your product at www.poly.com/support/. To determine the start of the warranty period you may be asked to provide the dated sales receipt showing the date you purchased the Poly product.
Warranty claims that cannot be processed through your point of purchase and any other Poly product related questions should be addressed directly to Poly. You can find our knowledge base articles, ask a question, receive service over the Internet or speak directly to a representative via www.poly.com/support/.
Any claim under this Limited Warranty is subject to you notifying Poly or your point of purchase of the alleged defect within a reasonable time of it having come to your attention and in any event no later than before the expiry of the Warranty Period.
Obtaining Warranty Support in Another Country
Poly products purchased in one country or region may be eligible for warranty service in other countries or regions where Poly or a Poly authorized service provider offers warranty service for the same Poly product, based on Poly’s product model number.
However, the Warranty Period provided in the country where the product was purchased shall apply. The warranty terms (including those stated here), service availability, and service response times may vary based on the country or region. Warranty service response times are always subject to change due to local conditions (including, without limitation, availability of parts and materials and a Poly authorized service provider).
What Is Not Covered by This Limited Warranty?
This Limited Warranty does not cover:
1) products that are not manufactured by or on behalf of Poly;
2) products purchased from anyone other than from Poly, a Poly affiliated company or a Poly authorized reseller;
3) products purchased through online auctions and second-hand products;
4) products that are operated in combination with software, peripheral or ancillary equipment such as but not limited to batteries, chargers, adapters, headsets, connector cables, and power supplies ("Ancillary Equipment") not furnished or otherwise certified by Poly for use with the Poly products or any damage to the Poly products or Ancillary Equipment as a result of such use;

9) Limited life consumable components and accessories, that are subject to normal wear and tear, such as cases, cradles, protective coatings, headbands and ear tips, (unless they are found to be non-functional or broken upon purchase of product).
Poly does not provide a warranty for software (whether pre-loaded on hardware or provided as a standalone product) under this Limited Warranty – please refer to the applicable Poly end user license agreement or software license. No warranty is made that any software provided by Poly will meet your requirements or will work in combination with any hardware or applications software products provided by third parties, that the operation of the software will be uninterrupted or error free, or that defects in the software will be corrected.
What Will We Do to Correct Problems?
For an end user customer with a Poly product that is within the applicable Warranty Period and has a defect that is covered by this Limited Warranty, Poly will repair or replace, at its option, the Poly product if you provide notice to Poly and return the product to Poly in the manner described in this Limited Warranty.
Poly may repair or replace products under this Limited Warranty: (a) with new or reconditioned products, parts, or components, or (b) with a similar Poly product if the eligible product under this Limited Warranty has been discontinued.
Poly further warrants on the same terms as this Limited Warranty the repaired or replaced Poly products for the greater of: (a) ninety (90) days following the repair and/or replacement, or (b) the remainder of the original Warranty Period for the Poly product that was repaired or replaced.
When a Poly product is replaced, the replacement product becomes your property, and the returned product becomes the property of Poly.
In the unlikely event that your Poly product has recurring failures or Poly is unable to repair or replace the Poly product, Poly will provide you with a replacement Poly product that is selected by Poly and is the same or similar in performance.
This is your exclusive remedy for a defective Poly product that is covered by this Limited Warranty.
