SPORTDOG® LIMITED WARRANTY
WHAT IS COVERED: Radio Systems Corporation, hereinafter referred to as SportDOG, warrants to the original retail consumer purchaser who purchased a SportDOG product from an authorized reseller of SportDOG products, and not to any other purchaser or subsequent owner, that its SportDOG product, when subject to normal and proper use, will be free from defects in material or workmanship for the “Warranty Period” applicable to the particular product. The Warranty Period will vary based on the product purchased. The various SportDOG products and their respective Warranty Periods are listed below unless otherwise specified in the product manual. An “original retail consumer purchaser” is a person or entity who is the original purchaser of the product from an authorized reseller of SportDOG products or is a gift recipient of a new product that is unopened and in its original packaging. When serviced by SportDOG Customer Service, SportDOG covers labor and parts for the Warranty Period commencing on the purchase date; following the Warranty Period, a service or upgrade charge will apply with regard to replacement of the product with new or refurbished items at SportDOG’s sole discretion. The limited warranty is non-transferable and shall automatically terminate if the original retail consumer purchaser re-sells the SportDOG product or transfers the property on which the SportDOG product is installed. In the event of a product defect, these are your exclusive remedies.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED: This non-transferrable limited warranty does not apply to products purchased from unauthorized sellers, including unauthorized Internet sites.
