1.  The Plan.  This service contract governs the hardware service and technical support provided to you by Apple under the above-mentioned plans (each referred to herein as the “Plan”) for an Apple-branded iPhone, iPad or iPod and the accessories contained in its original packaging (“Covered Device”) listed on your proof of coverage document (“Plan Confirmation”).

(For purposes of this service contract, the Covered Device and, if applicable, the iPad Connectivity Device is known collectively as the “Covered Equipment”).
 
2.  When Coverage Begins and Ends. 
 
Coverage begins when you purchase the Plan. Coverage ends twenty-four (24) months from the date of retail purchase of your original Covered Device (“Plan Term”). Your Plan Confirmation will be provided to you at or about the time of purchase or sent to you automatically thereafter. The terms of this Plan, the original sales receipt for your Plan and the Plan Confirmation are each part of your service contract. To obtain a copy of your Plan Confirmation, follow the instructions and enter your Covered Device’s serial number at www.apple.com/support/applecare/view.

Coverage under this Plan is additional to the coverage provided under applicable mandatory laws, the manufacturer’s hardware warranty and complimentary technical support. 
 
3.  What is Covered?
 
3.1 Hardware Service
 
If during the Plan Term, you submit a valid claim by notifying Apple that (i) a defect in materials and workmanship has arisen in the Covered Equipment, or (ii) the capacity of the Covered Equipment’s battery to hold an electrical charge has depleted fifty (50%) percent or more from its original specifications, Apple will either (a) repair the defect at no charge, using new parts or parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (b) exchange the Covered Equipment, with a replacement product that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability. All replacement products provided under this Plan will at a minimum be functionally equivalent to the original product.  If Apple exchanges the Covered Equipment, the original product becomes Apple’s property and the replacement product is your property, with coverage for the remaining period of the Plan.
 
3.2 Accidental Damage from Handling
 
If during the Plan Term you submit a valid claim notifying Apple that the Covered Device has failed due to accidental damage from handling (“ADH”), Apple will, subject to the service fee described below, either (i) repair the defect using new or refurbished parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) exchange the Covered Device with a replacement product that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability (both individually known as a “Service Event”). ADH coverage will expire and all of Apple’s obligations to you under this section 3.2 will be fulfilled in its entirety before the end of the Plan Term when Apple, as a result of ADH claims, has provided to you two (2) Service Events. ADH coverage only applies to an operational or mechanical failure caused by an accident from handling that is the result of an unexpected and unintentional external event (e.g. drops and liquid contact) that arises from your normal daily usage of the Covered Device as intended for such Covered Device. ADH coverage does not include (a) protection against normal wear and tear, theft, misplacement, reckless, abusive, willful or intentional conduct associated with handling and use of the Covered Device, (b) protection against any other act or result not covered by the Plan, as described in Section 4.2 below, or (c) any resultant damage to the Covered Device that arises from one or more conditions described in Section 3.2(a) or (b).

Apple will deny your claim if you fail to pay the service fee or fail to provide information relating to the accident when asked.

You may obtain hardware services, which include those relating to ADH coverage and technical support.  To obtain such services or support, please access the Apple website (www.apple.com/support/country/) or call the telephone number listed below. If you call, you will need to give the Apple technical support representative who answers your call the Plan Agreement Number or Covered Equipment serial number before you can receive assistance.  You need to keep your Plan Confirmation document and the original sales receipt for your Covered Equipment and your Plan, as it will be required if there is any question as to your Covered Equipment’s eligibility for coverage.
 
6. Service Options.
 
6.1 Apple will provide hardware services to you through one or more of these options:
 
(i) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment products.  Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store location or to an AASP that offers carry-in service. Service will be performed for you at the store, or the store may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) site for service. Once you are notified that service is complete, you will promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.
 
(ii) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment products.  If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid way bills (and if you no longer have the original packaging, packaging material) and you will ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS site in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS site will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if you follow all instructions.
 
(iii) Express Replacement Service (“ERS”) or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service.  ERS is available for certain Covered Equipment products. DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment parts or accessories, and this will allow you to service your own Covered Equipment. If ERS or DIY parts service is available in the circumstances, the following process will apply.
 
(a) Service where Apple requires return of the replaced Covered Equipment or part. Apple may require a credit card authorization to serve as security for the retail price of the replacement Covered Equipment or part and applicable shipping costs. If you are not able to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you and Apple will offer an alternative arrangement for service. Apple will ship a replacement Equipment or part to you with installation instructions, if such are applicable, and any requirements for the return of the replaced Covered Equipment or part. If you follow the instructions, Apple will cancel the credit card authorization, so you will not be charged for the Covered Equipment or part and shipping to and from your location. If you fail to return the replaced Covered Equipment or part as instructed or return a replaced Covered Equipment or part that is ineligible for service, Apple will charge the credit card for the authorized amount.
 
(b) Service where Apple does not require return of the replaced product or part. Apple will ship you free of charge a replacement product or part accompanied by instructions on installation, if applicable, and any requirements for the disposal of the replaced product or part.
 
(c) Apple is not responsible for any labor costs you incur in respect to ERS or DIY parts service. Should you require further assistance, you should contact Apple at the telephone number listed below.
 
6.2 Apple reserves the right to change the method by which Apple may provide repair or replacement service to you, and your Covered Equipment’s eligibility to receive a particular method of service. Service will be limited to the options available in the country where you request service.  Service options, parts availability and response times may vary according to country.  If service is not available for the Covered Equipment in a country that is not the country of purchase, you may be responsible for shipping and handling charges to facilitate service to a country where service is available. If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you will comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated taxes and charges. For international service, Apple may repair or exchange products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.
