CleverPet Warranty Policy
1 Year Limited Warranty
CleverPet’s warranty obligations for this hardware product are limited to the terms set forth below:
CleverPet, Inc. ("CleverPet") warrants the CleverPet-branded hardware product against defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of ONE (1) YEAR from the date of retail purchase by the original end-user purchaser ("Warranty Period").
If a hardware defect arises and a valid claim is received within the Warranty Period, at its sole discretion and to the extent permitted by law, CleverPet will either
(1) repair the hardware defect at no charge, using new or refurbished replacement parts, or
(2) exchange the product with a product that is new or which has been manufactured from new or serviceable used parts and is at least functionally equivalent to the original product.
CleverPet may request that you replace defective parts with new or refurbished user-installable parts that CleverPet provides in fulfillment of its warranty obligation. A replacement product or part, including a user-installable part that has been installed in accordance with instructions provided by CleverPet, assumes the remaining warranty of the original product or thirty (30) days from the date of replacement or repair, whichever provides longer coverage for you. When a product or part is exchanged, any replacement item becomes your property and the replaced item becomes CleverPet's property.
Parts provided by CleverPet in fulfillment of its warranty obligation must be used in products for which warranty service is claimed. When a refund is given, the product for which the refund is provided must be returned to CleverPet and becomes CleverPet's property.
Such repair or exchange shall constitute complete fulfilment of all of CleverPet’s obligations under this limited warranty and shall preclude any additional right of compensation or damages.
