Terms & Warranties
We warrant that Deka branded products purchased by you from this site (1) will be free of defects in materials and workmanship for 1 year from the date of original shipment or purchase from an authorized reseller, as determined by the date on the original packing slip or original receipt of authorized reseller; and (2) will not fail because of perspiration for the expected life of the product, as determined by Deka in its sole discretion (the "Limited Warranty"). As used above, the phrase "fail because of perspiration" means that the electronics in the product cease to function as a direct result of the effects of perspiration and excludes other causes of failure, including without limitation broken wires, cracked casings, and dead batteries, even if they may have some indirect relation to perspiration.
This Limited Warranty extends only to the original end-user purchaser of the product and is not assignable or transferable to any other person. This Limited Warranty does not cover (1) any damage or loss that occurs after we place the product with the carrier for shipment, (2) any damage caused by normal wear and tear, abnormal use or conditions, neglect, abuse, misuse, accident, improper storage or handling, unauthorized modifications or repairs, improper use of any electrical source, undue physical or electrical stress, user error, or failure to follow product instructions, (3) any product with an altered or missing serial number or any counterfeit product, (4) any damage from external causes such as storm, flood, fire, dirt, sand, earthquakes, Acts of God, exposure to sunlight, weather, heat, or corrosive environments, electrical surges, or third-party products, or (5) product fit or appearance other than failure to provide a product that is materially equivalent to the product description on this site.
Any replacement product assumes the remaining of the original warranty OR 90 days from the date of receipt of replacement item, whichever provides longer coverage.
WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT PRODUCTS WILL OPERATE UNINTERRUPTED OR BE ERROR FREE OR THAT ALL PRODUCT ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED. OUR ONLY LIABILITY UNDER THIS LIMITED WARRANTY, WHETHER IN TORT, CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, AND YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY, WILL BE, AT OUR OPTION, TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THE PRODUCTS OR REFUND THE AMOUNT PAID FOR PRODUCTS RETURNED TO US, LESS A PRORATED AMOUNT FOR ANY PERIOD OF PROBLEM-FREE USE. THE PRORATED AMOUNT WILL BE BASED ON THE EXPECTED LIFE OF THE PRODUCT.
Replacement products may include refurbished Deka products that have been certified to conform to the original product descriptions. If we elect to repair any defective product and are unable to do so after a reasonable number of attempts, we will provide you a replacement product or will refund your purchase price less a prorated amount for any period of problem-free use.
IN NO EVENT WILL DEKA'S LIABILITY EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU PAID FOR THE PRODUCT, LESS A PRORATED AMOUNT FOR ANY PERIOD OF PROBLEM-FREE USE, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION OR THE THEORY OF LIABILITY.
We have no liability to pay for any repairs performed by anyone other than us, unless in each instance we have given written approval for such repairs. Any unauthorized attempt to repair products will void our warranty on the product(s). For any product(s) you purchase from us that are covered by another manufacturer's warranty, your warranty is limited to that warranty. In such event, we will reasonably assist you, upon written request, to place a warranty claim with the manufacturer.
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY SHALL BE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, AND STATUTORY, AND DEKA EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL SUCH WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. WE WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS OR DAMAGE RESULTING FROM THE USE OF ANY PRODUCTS THAT YOU PURCHASE FROM US, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION OR THE THEORY OF LIABILITY AND EVEN IF WE ARE AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE LIMITATIONS CONTAINED IN THIS "LIMITED WARRANTY" SECTION SHALL APPLY EVEN IF ANY REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
