Repair Terms and Conditions

IMPORTANT: THESE REPAIR TERMS AND CONDITIONS (“AGREEMENT”) CONSTITUTE YOUR AGREEMENT WITH APPLE (AS IT IS DESCRIBED IN THE COUNTRY VARIATION SECTIONS, SPECIFIED THROUGHOUT THE AGREEMENT) AND WILL APPLY TO YOUR ORDER IF THE SERVICE IS OUTSIDE THE TERMS OF APPLE’S LIMITED WARRANTY, AN APPLE ADMINISTERED EXTENDED SERVICE CONTRACT OR YOUR STATUTORY CONSUMER RIGHTS. 

CONSUMER LAW: FOR CONSUMERS WHO ARE COVERED BY CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS OR REGULATIONS IN THEIR COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE, THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS AGREEMENT ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES CONVEYED BY SUCH CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS AND REGULATIONS AND YOU SHOULD CONSULT THE CITIZENS ADVICE SERVICE IN YOUR COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ON THESE RIGHTS. 
 
1.              Services and Products.
 
1.1       Services. For service orders, Apple will service your Apple product as described to you for the estimated charges stated, unless such charges are revised with your prior oral or written consent. Unless otherwise stated, Apple will provide repair or replacement services to address a defect in the materials or workmanship of a product. Service is not available for issues caused by failure of or incompatibilities with any software or data residing or recorded on your product.
 
1.2       Parts and Labor. Apple may provide both parts and labor, but may direct that you replace certain readily installable parts yourself, as described below. In servicing your product, Apple may use parts or products that are new or refurbished and equivalent to new in performance and reliability. Apple will retain the replaced part or product that is exchanged during service as its property, and the replacement part or product will become your property. Replaced parts and products are generally repairable and are exchanged or repaired by Apple for value. If applicable law requires Apple to return a replaced item to you, you agree to pay Apple the retail cost of the replacement item and shipping.
 
1.3       Service Options. Apple will provide service through one of the following options and will choose which method of providing service depending on the circumstances, in particular depending on the type of Apple product:
 
A          Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Parts Service. DIY Parts Service allows you to service your own product. If Apple determines that DIY Parts Service is available to you, Apple will ship to you a replacement part for your Apple product. The replacement part will be accompanied by instructions on installation and any requirements for the return of the replaced part. For DIY Parts Service requiring the return of the replaced part, you must provide credit card details to secure the return of the replaced part. All replaced parts requiring return, must be returned to Apple within ten (10) days from the date Apple ships the replacement part to you (“Return Period”). If (i) you fail to return the replaced part as instructed within the Return Period, or (ii) the replaced part is not eligible for service due to a Service Exclusion, as described below, you will pay the amount agreed by you at the time service was ordered. If Apple does not require the return of a replaced part, Apple will ship to you a replacement part or product accompanied by instructions on installation and any requirements for the disposal of the replaced item. Apple is not responsible for any labor costs relating to DIY Parts Service.
 
B          Direct Mail-In Service. If Apple determines that your product is eligible for Direct Mail-In Service, you will ship your product to Apple’s repair service location in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Apple may provide prepaid way bills (and if you no longer have the original packaging, Apple may send you packaging material). If Apple does not provide prepaid way bills or packaging, you must arrange for the shipping and packaging of your product to Apple’s repair service location, as described at the time of ordering, and you may want to consider insuring your package in case of damage or loss during shipment. Once service is complete, the Apple repair service location will return the repaired product or provide a replacement product to you.
 
C          Express Replacement Service (ERS).
 
i.          If Apple determines that your product is eligible for ERS, and you choose to order ERS by providing to Apple your credit card details, Apple will ship to your designated location a replacement product. You will return your product so that Apple receives it within ten (10) days from the date Apple ships the replacement product (the “Return Period”). You must return the original product in the package that contained the replacement product in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Apple will retain the original product and you will retain the replacement product.
 
ii.         For the ERS, Apple will charge your credit card the ERS Charge, described at the Service FAQ web page Shown in the table below (“Service FAQ”) at the time the Replacement product ships. At the time the Replacement product ships, Apple will effect an authorization against your credit card equal to the replacement value of a new product (“Replacement Value”), described at the Service FAQ. This authorization will be maintained by Apple and will be applied against any damage to the original product that is not eligible for Out-of-Warranty Service, or loss of the original product or other payments due Apple.

iPad www.apple.com/support/ipad/repair
 
iii.        If Apple receives the original product within the Return Period in a condition that is not eligible for Out-of-Warranty Service, your credit card will be charged an additional amount representing the difference between the replacement value of a new product (“Replacement Value”) and the Out-of-Warranty Service Fee, as described at the Service FAQ Web Page. An original product that is inoperable due to unauthorized modifications or has failed due to catastrophic damage, such as the product separating into multiple pieces, are examples of a product that is ineligible for Out of Warranty Service.
 
iv.         If Apple does not receive the original product within the Return Period your credit card will be charged the Replacement Value. However, if the original product is returned to Apple within ten (10) days after the end of the Return Period your credit card will be charged the Late Fee, as described at the Service FAQ, and any other charges for which you are responsible, and the remainder of the Replacement Value will be credited back to your credit card. After confirmation that all charges have been paid, the authorization on your credit card will expire. All fees and charges described herein exclude all applicable taxes.
 
1.4       Changes to Service Options. Apple reserves the right to change at any time the service options available to you.
 
1.5       End Users Only. Apple services, sells and ships products to end user customers only. You may not purchase for resale. Apple reserves the right to refuse or cancel your order if Apple suspects you are purchasing for resale.
 
1.6       No Sale to Minors. Purchase under these terms is available only to those who have reached the age of majority.
 
1.7       Service Exclusions and Diagnostic Fee. Apple may charge you a diagnostic fee (including shipping charges) as described in the Country Variation table, below (“Diagnostic Fee”), if Apple inspects your product and determines that (i) your product does not require service, (ii) your product has failed due to or has incompatibilities with software or data residing or recorded on your product (iii) service is required due to the failure of parts that are neither supplied by Apple nor Apple-branded, (iii) additional labor or parts are required that were not specified in the original estimated charges and you do not agree to authorize service based on Apple’s revised estimated charges, or (iv) service cannot be performed because the serial number has been altered, defaced or removed or the product has failed due to accident, abuse, liquid spill or submersion, neglect, misuse (including faulty installation, repair, or maintenance by anyone other than Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider), unauthorized modification, extreme environment (including extreme temperature or humidity), extreme physical or electrical stress or interference, fluctuation or surges of electrical power, lightning, static electricity, fire, acts of God or other external causes (“Service Exclusions”).

1.10.3  Abandoned Property. Unless you provide alternative instructions, Apple will ship your repaired or replacement product to the mailing address you furnished when you authorized service. If your product is returned to Apple because delivery could not be completed at the address given, Apple will attempt to contact you for an alternative mailing address. If you do not provide an address at which Apple or its agent may deliver your product within sixty (60) days (see the Country Variation sections, below, for any applicable exceptions) after the original delivery attempt, Apple will notify you that it considers your product to be abandoned. Apple will send notice to the mailing address you furnished when you authorized service. In the event that your product is abandoned, Apple may dispose of your product in accordance with applicable provisions of law, and, specifically, may sell your product at a private or public sale to pay for any outstanding service performed. Apple reserves its statutory and any other lawful liens for unpaid charges.

For customers in Austria or Germany: Apple is entitled to retain your product until full payment by you of all charges for the repair.  If you have not claimed your product and paid all charges due within sixty (60) days after being notified by Apple that your product has been repaired, Apple will invite you to collect the product and/or to accept delivery of the products, in exchange for the payment of the charges.  It is understood that, without prejudice to the rights of Apple to obtain compensation of damages, you will be responsible for all charges incurred for the custody of the products Apple reserves its statutory and any other lawful liens for unpaid charges.

If you decline authorization, Apple may return your product unrepaired in the damaged condition without any responsibility.
 
2.         Orders and Payment
 
2.1       Payment. Terms of payment are within Apple’s sole discretion, and unless otherwise agreed to by Apple, payment details must be received prior to Apple’s acceptance of an order.

Apple allows you to make purchases or place orders (that require security for the return of the replaced part or product) using credit card, debit card or check card when applicable and acceptable in the Country where the service is provided (except in Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore), or some other prearranged payment method unless Apple has agreed to some other credit terms. When you provide Apple with your card information, Apple will obtain a pre-approval from the card company for the amount of the order, which may result in a corresponding block on your available credit while the pre-approval remains in place. Apple will not bill your credit card or process a transaction under your debit or check card until your order is processed. Apple may not be able to accept credit, debit, or check cards associated with a billing address outside of the country site.

2.4       Confirmation. Apple will send you a confirmation of your order via email shortly after receipt. You will receive a confirmation by regular mail when Apple accepts your order.
 
2.5       Refunds. Except as described in the Warranty and Limitation of Liability section below, Apple does not provide refunds for service orders.
 
3.         Warranty and Limitation of Liability

If non-conforming service is provided or a defect arises in a replacement part or product during the applicable warranty period, Apple will at its option, either (a) re-perform services to conform to their description (b) repair or replace the part or product, using parts or products that are new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (c) refund the sums paid to Apple for service.
 
Australia: The rights described in this policy in respect of returns, refunds and warranties are in addition to the statutory rights to which you may be entitled under the Consumer and Competition Act 2010 and other applicable Australian consumer protection laws and regulations. Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure. Goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired.  Refurbished parts may be used to repair the goods.  The repair of goods may result in loss of the data.
 
Brazil: Apple does not use reconditioned or previously used products or parts when servicing Apple products.
 
Denmark: For Danish consumers the rights in this warranty come in addition to and do not affect your mandatory rights as a consumer, including those contained in the Sales of Goods Act, among other things establishing the right to complain as to nonconformities until the expiry of the two year claims period set forth therein, that is 2 years as from the date of the purchase. Furthermore, if the serviced product fails following the expiry of the 90 day warranty, but within 2 years of date of performance of the services, consumers shall, at Apple’s discretion be entitled either to a re-performance of the services, or a refund of the fee paid for the services, if it can be established that such a failure is due to a non-conformance in the service performed.
 
Norway: For Norwegian consumers the rights under this Agreement are in addition to your statutory rights pursuant to the Norwegian Craftsmanship Services for Consumers Act (håndverkertjenesteloven) and/or the Norwegian Consumer Purchase Act (forbrukerkjøpsloven), including your right to use the longest period of claim, that is within two years from the repair or purchase.
 
3.2       Disclaimer of Warranty.

EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN, APPLE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY ANY THIRD PARTY. YOU AGREE THAT FOR ANY LIABILITY RELATED TO THE PURCHASE OF PRODUCT, APPLE IS NOT LIABLE OR RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY AMOUNT OF DAMAGES ABOVE THE AMOUNT OF YOUR ORDER. IN CONSUMER CASES, THE LIABILITY FOR (1) PERSONAL DEATH AND INJURY AND (2) FRAUD MAY BE WIDER THAN NEGLIGENCE CAUSED LOSS AND IN SUCH CASES APPLE DOES NOT SEEK TO EXCLUDE THIS LIABILITY.
 
3.4       Some states, provinces and jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or exclusions or limitations on the duration of implied warranties or conditions, so these limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
