WHAT IS COVERED BY THIS EXPANDED LIMITED WARRANTY?
During the Expanded Warranty Period HTC will, at no charge to You, provide one repair or replacement of a cracked, scratched, or broken screen of the Eligible Product caused by an accident from handling that is the result of an unexpected and unintentional external event (e.g. drops) that arises from your normal daily usage of the Eligible Product as intended for such Eligible Product (“Expanded Limited Warranty”).

This Expanded Limited Warranty is given only to You, and may not be sold, assigned, transferred, or given in full or in part to any subsequent purchaser or acquirer of the Product or any other person.  This Expanded Limited Warranty gives You specific legal rights, and You may also have other rights which vary from State to State.

WHAT IS NOT COVERED BY THIS EXPANDED LIMITED WARRANTY?
This Expanded Limited Warranty does not apply other than to the Eligible Product.  It therefore does not apply to any non-HTC equipment or any software whatsoever, whether developed by HTC or a third party, even if packaged with or installed on the Eligible Product prior to purchase by You.  Third party manufacturers, suppliers, or publishers may provide warranties for their own products and You may contact them directly for service.

EVEN WITH RESPECT TO THE ELIGIBLE PRODUCT THAT YOU PURCHASED, THIS EXPANDED LIMITED WARRANTY SHALL NOT APPLY:

  1. if the Eligible Product serial number or the IMEI/MEID number has been removed, erased, defaced, or altered, or is illegible;
  2. if the battery of the Eligible Product was improperly installed by You or another person or if the seals of the battery enclosure or the cells of the Eligible Product are broken or show evidence of tampering, or if the battery of the Eligible Product has been used in equipment other than that for which it has been specified;
  3. if the Eligible Product has suffered unauthorized modifications or connections, unauthorized opening, repair by use of unauthorized spare parts, or repair by an unauthorized person or location;
  4. if the screen of the Eligible Product was damaged by use not in accordance with the user manual, rough handling beyond normal use, exposure to moisture, dampness or extreme thermal or environmental conditions, or a rapid change in such conditions, corrosion or oxidation.

This Expanded Limited Warranty is valid and enforceable only in the United States where the Eligible Product is intended to be sold.  Moreover, if the Eligible Product is returned to be repaired under this Expanded Limited Warranty in a country other than the United States, HTC will return the Eligible Product unrepaired. 

DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF OTHER WARRANTIES AND RIGHTS
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THIS EXPANDED LIMITED WARRANTY, THE LIMITED WARRANTY AND THE REMEDIES SET FORTH ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, REMEDIES, AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER ORAL, WRITTEN, STATUTORY, EXPRESS, OR IMPLIED.

HTC DISCLAIMS ALL STATUTORY AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND WARRANTIES AGAINST HIDDEN OR LATENT DEFECTS, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

INSOFAR AS SUCH WARRANTIES CANNOT BE DISCLAIMED, HTC LIMITS THE DURATION AND REMEDIES OF SUCH WARRANTIES TO THE DURATION OF THIS EXPANDED LIMITED WARRANTY AND, AT HTC’S OPTION, THE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT SERVICES DESCRIBED HEREIN.

Some States do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to You.

HOW DO I OBTAIN WARRANTY SERVICE?
In the event of a cracked, scratched or broken screen of the Eligible Product, You should take the following actions:

  1. Refer to the resources available at www.htc.com/support in order to contact an HTC service center. Only HTC or an HTC authorized service center should perform service on the Eligible Product. 
  2. When You contact HTC, please be sure to have the following information available:
    1. The model, serial number, and IMEI/ESN number of the Eligible Product.
    2. Your full address and contact information.
    3. A copy of the original invoice, receipt or bill of sale for the purchase of the Eligible Product. You must present a valid proof of purchase upon making any claims pursuant to this Expanded Limited Warranty.

Upon completion of these steps, HTC will provide You with instructions regarding how and when the Eligible Product should be returned. You may be responsible for costs in connection with the return of the Eligible Product to HTC.

If You return the Eligible Product during the Expanded Warranty Period and it satisfies the terms of this Expanded Limited Warranty, HTC or its authorized agent will, at its sole discretion, repair or replace it. Repair or replacement may involve the use of a functionally equivalent reconditioned product and/or parts.  HTC will return the repaired or replacement product to You in good working condition. Any Eligible Product, parts or components thereof that are replaced under the terms of this Expanded Limited Warranty become the property of HTC.

Before returning any unit for service, be sure to back up data and remove any confidential, proprietary, or personal information, and/or removable memory from the Eligible Product, such as micro SD cards.  HTC is not responsible for damage to or loss of any programs, data, images, personal information, or removable storage media.  DURING THE NORMAL REPAIR PROCESS, THE CONTENTS OF THE PRODUCT WILL LIKELY BE ERASED, INCLUDING DATA STORED ON EITHER INSTALLED OR REMOVABLE STORAGE.  At HTC’s sole discretion, the Eligible Product may be returned to You in either the original configuration or as updated to the newest available software.

HTC must be notified of the cracked, scratched or broken screen of the Eligible Product during the applicable Expanded Warranty Period in order for You to be eligible for any remedy under the Expanded Limited Warranty.  Do not ship Your Eligible Product directly to HTC unless You are asked to do so when following the steps above.  If You need to return the Eligible Product for screen repair service, the steps above must be followed.
