How Consumer Rights Affect this Plan

FOR CONSUMERS IN JURISDICTIONS WHO HAVE THE BENEFIT OF CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS OR REGULATIONS, THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THE ABOVE MENTIONED PLANS ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS. NOTHING IN THIS PLAN SHALL PREJUDICE CONSUMER RIGHTS GRANTED BY APPLICABLE MANDATORY LAWS, INCLUDING CONSUMER’S RIGHT TO THE REMEDIES UNDER STATUTORY WARRANTY LAW AND TO SEEK DAMAGES IN THE EVENT OF TOTAL OR PARTIAL NON-PERFORMANCE OR INADEQUATE PERFORMANCE BY APPLE OF ANY OF ITS CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS.

1. The Plan. This service contract governs the hardware services and technical support provided to you by Apple under the above-mentioned plans (each referred to herein as the “Plan”) for the Apple-branded product and the Apple-branded accessories contained in its original packaging (“Covered Equipment”) listed on your proof of coverage document (“Plan Confirmation”). For the purposes of this Plan, Apple will mean the entity or the successor in title to the entity listed in section 12 below.

2. When Coverage Begins and Ends.

Coverage begins when you purchase the Plan and ends on the date specified in your Plan Confirmation (“Coverage Period”). To obtain your Plan Confirmation, register your Covered Equipment and your Plan’s registration number (“Plan Agreement Number”) with Apple. If auto-registration is available, you may receive a separate Plan Confirmation. If auto-registration is available and you do not receive a separate Plan Confirmation, your original sales receipt will be your Plan Confirmation. The terms of this Plan, the original sales receipt for your Plan and the Plan Confirmation are each part of your service contract. The price of the Plan is contained in the original sales receipt. The hardware service and technical support coverage provided by the Plan is additional to the coverage provided by the manufacturer’s hardware warranty and complimentary technical support.

3. What is Covered?

If during the Coverage Period, 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 a covered battery to hold an electrical charge is less than eighty percent (80%) of its original specifications, Apple will either (a) repair the defect at no charge, using new or refurbished 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, and is at least 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.

If calling, an Apple technical support representative will answer, request your Plan Agreement Number or Covered Equipment serial number, before providing assistance. 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 product’s eligibility for coverage.

6. Hardware Service Options

6.1 Apple will provide hardware services through one or more of the following options:

(i) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store or an AASP location offering carry-in service. Service will be performed at the location, or the store or service provider may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) location to be serviced. Once you are notified that service is complete, you will promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.

(ii) Onsite service. Onsite service is available in some countries for many desktop computers if the location of the Covered Equipment is within 50 miles (80 kilometers) radius of an Apple Authorized Onsite Service Provider. Certain parts serviceable under do-it-yourself parts service, as described below, are not be eligible for Onsite service. If Apple determines that onsite service is available, Apple will dispatch a service technician to the location of the Covered Equipment. Service will be performed at the location, or the service technician will transport the Covered Equipment to an AASP or ARS location for repair. If the Covered Equipment is repaired at an AASP or ARS location, Apple will arrange for transportation of the Covered Equipment to your location following service. If the service technician is not granted access to the Covered Equipment at the appointed time, any further onsite visits may be subject to an additional charge.

(iii) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid waybills (and if you no longer have the original packaging, packaging material) and you will ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS location in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS location will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if all instructions are followed. Alternatively, Apple or Apple Authorised Service Provider may arrange to pick your Covered Equipment up from you and then once the service is complete, ship the Covered Equipment back to you directly.

(iv) Express Replacement Service or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service. Express Replacement Service is available in certain countries for certain Covered Equipment products, and DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment parts, allowing you to service your own product. If Express Replacement Service or DIY parts service is available in the circumstances, the following process will apply.

(a) Service where Apple requires return of the replaced product or part. Apple may require a credit card authorization as security for the retail price of the replacement product or part and applicable shipping costs. If you are unable to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you and Apple will offer alternative arrangements for service. Apple will ship a replacement product or part to you with installation instructions, if applicable, and any requirements for the return of the replaced product or part. If you follow the instructions, Apple will cancel the credit card authorization, so you will not be charged for the product or part and shipping to and from your location. If you fail to return the replaced product or part as instructed or return a replaced product 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 relating to Express Replacement Service or DIY parts service. Should you require further assistance, contact Apple at the telephone number listed at www.apple.com/support/contact/phone_contacts.html.

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 service is requested. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary according to country. You may be responsible for shipping and handling charges if the Covered Equipment cannot be serviced in the country it is in. 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 defective products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.

7. Your Responsibilities

To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to comply with the following:

(i) Provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, if requested;

(ii) Provide information about the symptoms and causes of the issues with the Covered Equipment;

(iii) Respond to requests for information, including but not limited to the Covered Equipment serial number, model, version of the operating system and software installed, any peripherals devices connected or installed on the Covered Equipment, any error messages displayed, actions taken before the Covered Equipment experienced the issue and steps taken to resolve the issue;

(iv) Follow instructions Apple gives you, including but not limited to refraining from sending Apple products and accessories that are not subject to repair or replacement service and packing the Covered Equipment in accordance with shipping instructions;

(v) Update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service; and

APPLE MAY REINSTALL THE COVERED EQUIPMENT’S ORIGINAL SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION AND SUBSEQUENT UPDATE RELEASES WHILE PERFORMING SERVICE, WHICH WILL RESULT IN THE DELETION OF ALL SOFTWARE AND DATA THAT RESIDED ON THE COVERED EQUIPMENT PRIOR TO SERVICE. DURING APP FOR IPOD SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE IPOD AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your iPod or provide a replacement iPod as the iPod was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install iPod OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the iPod from reverting to an earlier version of the iPod OS. Third party applications installed on the iPod may not be compatible or work with the iPod as a result of the iPod OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data and passwords.

8. Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO COSTS OF RECOVERING, REPROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA OR THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, ANY LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, RESULTING FROM APPLE’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS PLAN. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE LIMIT OF APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENT’S LIABILITY TO YOU AND ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER ARISING UNDER THE PLAN SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ORIGINAL PRICE PAID FOR THE PLAN. APPLE SPECIFICALLY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT (i) IT WILL BE ABLE TO REPAIR OR REPLACE COVERED EQUIPMENT WITHOUT RISK TO OR LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR DATA, (ii) IT WILL MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, OR (iii) THAT THE OPERATION OF THE PRODUCT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.

FOR CONSUMERS IN JURISDICTIONS WHO HAVE THE BENEFIT OF CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS OR REGULATIONS, THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS. TO THE EXTENT THAT LIABILITY UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS MAY BE LIMITED, APPLE’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED, AT ITS SOLE OPTION, TO REPLACE OR REPAIR OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT OR SUPPLY OF THE SERVICE. SOME STATES OR PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

How Consumer Rights Affect this Plan

FOR CONSUMERS IN JURISDICTIONS WHO HAVE THE BENEFIT OF CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS OR REGULATIONS, THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THE ABOVE MENTIONED PLANS ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS.  NOTHING IN THIS PLAN SHALL PREJUDICE CONSUMER RIGHTS GRANTED BY APPLICABLE MANDATORY LAWS, INCLUDING CONSUMER’S RIGHT TO THE REMEDIES UNDER STATUTORY WARRANTY LAW AND TO SEEK DAMAGES IN THE EVENT OF TOTAL OR PARTIAL NON-PERFORMANCE OR INADEQUATE PERFORMANCE BY APPLE OF ANY OF ITS CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS.

1. The Plan.  This service contract governs the hardware services and technical support provided to you by Apple under the above-mentioned plans (each referred to herein as the “Plan”) for the Apple-branded product and the Apple-branded accessories contained in its original packaging (“Covered Equipment”) listed on your proof of coverage document (“Plan Confirmation”).  For the purposes of this Plan, Apple will mean the entity or the successor in title to the entity listed in section 12 below.

2. When Coverage Begins and Ends.

Coverage begins when you purchase the Plan and ends on the date specified in your Plan Confirmation (“Coverage Period”).  To obtain your Plan Confirmation, register your Covered Equipment and your Plan’s registration number (“Plan Agreement Number”) with Apple.  If auto-registration is available, you may receive a separate Plan Confirmation. If auto-registration is available and you do not receive a separate Plan Confirmation, your original sales receipt will be your Plan Confirmation. The terms of this Plan, the original sales receipt for your Plan and the Plan Confirmation are each part of your service contract. The price of the Plan is contained in the original sales receipt. The hardware service and technical support coverage provided by the Plan is additional to the coverage provided by the manufacturer’s hardware warranty and complimentary technical support.

3. What is Covered?

3.1 Hardware Service

If during the Coverage Period, 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 a covered battery to hold an electrical charge is less than eighty percent (80%) of its original specifications, Apple will either (a) repair the defect at no charge, using new or refurbished 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, and is at least 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 Covered Equipment

In addition to the Apple-branded product and accessories contained in the original packaging, “Covered Equipment” includes the following according to your Plan:

 (i) Under APP for Mac, (a) one compatible Apple-branded display if purchased at the same time as the Covered Equipment, (b) an Apple-branded mouse, Magic Trackpad, Apple Battery Charger and keyboard if included with the Covered Equipment (or purchased with a Mac mini or Mac Pro), and (c) an AirPort Express or AirPort Extreme Base Station, AirPort Time Capsule, Apple memory modules (RAM) and Apple USB SuperDrive if used with the Covered Equipment and originally purchased by you no earlier than two years before the Covered Equipment purchase.
 
(ii) Under APP for Apple TV, an AirPort Express or AirPort Extreme Base Station and AirPort Time Capsule if used with the Covered Equipment and originally purchased by you no earlier than two years before the Covered Equipment purchase.

3.3 Technical Support

Technical support may include assistance with installation, launch, configuration, troubleshooting, and recovery (except for data recovery), including storing, retrieving, and managing files; interpreting system error messages; and determining when hardware service is required. Apple will provide support for the then-current version of the supported software, and the prior Major Release. For purposes of this section, "Major Release" means a significant version of software that is commercially released by Apple in a release number format such as "1.0" or "2.0" and which is not in beta or pre-release form. The scope of technical support provided to you will vary according to your Plan.

(ii) Under APP for iPod, Apple will provide technical support for the Covered Equipment, iPod OS and software applications that are pre-installed with the Covered Equipment (both referred to as "iPod Software") and connectivity issues between the Covered Equipment and a “Supported Computer”, meaning a computer that meets the Covered Equipment’s connectivity specifications and runs an operating system that is supported by the Covered Equipment.

(iii) Under APP for Apple Display, Apple will provide technical support for the Covered Equipment and connectivity issues between the Covered Equipment and a Supported Computer.

(iv) Under APP for Apple TV, Apple will provide technical support for the Covered Equipment, software applications that are pre-installed with the Covered Equipment (“Apple TV Software”) and connectivity issues between the Covered Equipment, a Supported Computer and a “Supported Television”, meaning a television that meets the Covered Equipment’s connectivity specifications.

If calling, an Apple technical support representative will answer, request your Plan Agreement Number or Covered Equipment serial number, before providing assistance. 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 product’s eligibility for coverage.

6. Hardware Service Options

6.1 Apple will provide hardware services through one or more of the following options:

(i) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store or an AASP location offering carry-in service. Service will be performed at the location, or the store or service provider may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) location to be serviced. Once you are notified that service is complete, you will promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.

(ii) Onsite service. Onsite service is available in some countries for many desktop computers if the location of the Covered Equipment is within 50 miles (80 kilometers) radius of an Apple Authorized Onsite Service Provider. Certain parts serviceable under do-it-yourself parts service, as described below, are not be eligible for Onsite service. If Apple determines that onsite service is available, Apple will dispatch a service technician to the location of the Covered Equipment. Service will be performed at the location, or the service technician will transport the Covered Equipment to an AASP or ARS location for repair. If the Covered Equipment is repaired at an AASP or ARS location, Apple will arrange for transportation of the Covered Equipment to your location following service. If the service technician is not granted access to the Covered Equipment at the appointed time, any further onsite visits may be subject to an additional charge.

(iii) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. If Apple determines that your Covered Equipment is eligible for mail-in service, Apple will send you prepaid waybills (and if you no longer have the original packaging, packaging material) and you will ship the Covered Equipment to an ARS location in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS location will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if all instructions are followed. Alternatively, Apple or Apple Authorised Service Provider may arrange to pick your Covered Equipment up from you and then once the service is complete, ship the Covered Equipment back to you directly.

(iv) Express Replacement Service or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service.  Express Replacement Service is available in certain countries for certain Covered Equipment products, and DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment parts, allowing you to service your own product. If Express Replacement Service or DIY parts service is available in the circumstances, the following process will apply.

(a) Service where Apple requires return of the replaced product or part. Apple may require a credit card authorization as security for the retail price of the replacement product or part and applicable shipping costs. If you are unable to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you and Apple will offer alternative arrangements for service. Apple will ship a replacement product or part to you with installation instructions, if applicable, and any requirements for the return of the replaced product or part. If you follow the instructions, Apple will cancel the credit card authorization, so you will not be charged for the product or part and shipping to and from your location. If you fail to return the replaced product or part as instructed or return a replaced product 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 relating to Express Replacement Service or DIY parts service. Should you require further assistance, contact Apple at the telephone number listed in the Guide.

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 service is requested. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary according to country. You may be responsible for shipping and handling charges if the Covered Equipment cannot be serviced in the country it is in. 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 defective products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.

7. Your Responsibilities

To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to comply with the following:

(i) Provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, if requested;

(ii) Provide information about the symptoms and causes of the issues with the Covered Equipment;

(iii) Respond to requests for information, including but not limited to the Covered Equipment serial number, model, version of the operating system and software installed, any peripherals devices connected or installed on the Covered Equipment, any error messages displayed, actions taken before the Covered Equipment experienced the issue and steps taken to resolve the issue;

(iv) Follow instructions Apple gives you, including but not limited to refraining from sending Apple products and accessories that are not subject to repair or replacement service and packing the Covered Equipment in accordance with shipping instructions;

(v) Update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service; and

(vi) MAKE SURE TO BACK UP SOFTWARE AND DATA RESIDING ON THE COVERED EQUIPMENT. APPLE MAY REINSTALL THE COVERED EQUIPMENT’S ORIGINAL SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION AND SUBSEQUENT UPDATE RELEASES WHILE PERFORMING SERVICE, WHICH WILL RESULT IN THE DELETION OF ALL SOFTWARE AND DATA THAT RESIDED ON THE COVERED EQUIPMENT PRIOR TO SERVICE. DURING APP FOR IPOD SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE IPOD AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your iPod or provide a replacement iPod as the iPod was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install iPod OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the iPod from reverting to an earlier version of the iPod OS. Third party applications installed on the iPod may not be compatible or work with the iPod as a result of the iPod OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data and passwords.

8. Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS WILL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER FOR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO COSTS OF RECOVERING, REPROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA OR THE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, ANY LOSS OF BUSINESS, PROFITS, REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, RESULTING FROM APPLE’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS PLAN. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE LIMIT OF APPLE AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENT’S LIABILITY TO YOU AND ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER ARISING UNDER THE PLAN SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ORIGINAL PRICE PAID FOR THE PLAN. APPLE SPECIFICALLY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT (i) IT WILL BE ABLE TO REPAIR OR REPLACE COVERED EQUIPMENT WITHOUT RISK TO OR LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR DATA, (ii) IT WILL MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA, OR (iii) THAT THE OPERATION OF THE PRODUCT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.

FOR CONSUMERS IN JURISDICTIONS WHO HAVE THE BENEFIT OF CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS OR REGULATIONS, THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS PLAN ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS. TO THE EXTENT THAT LIABILITY UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS MAY BE LIMITED, APPLE’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED, AT ITS SOLE OPTION, TO REPLACE OR REPAIR OF THE COVERED EQUIPMENT OR SUPPLY OF THE SERVICE. SOME STATES OR PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

How Consumer Rights Affect this Plan

FOR CONSUMERS IN JURISDICTIONS WHO HAVE THE BENEFIT OF CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS OR REGULATIONS, THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THE ABOVE MENTIONED PLANS ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER SUCH LAWS AND REGULATIONS.  NOTHING IN THIS PLAN SHALL PREJUDICE CONSUMER RIGHTS GRANTED BY APPLICABLE MANDATORY LAWS, INCLUDING CONSUMER’S RIGHT TO THE REMEDIES UNDER STATUTORY WARRANTY LAW AND TO SEEK DAMAGES IN THE EVENT OF TOTAL OR PARTIAL NON-PERFORMANCE OR INADEQUATE PERFORMANCE BY APPLE OF ANY OF ITS CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS.

1. The Plan.  This service contract governs the hardware services and technical support provided to you by Apple under the above-mentioned plans (each referred to herein as the “Plan”) for the Apple-branded product and the accessories contained in its original packaging (“Covered Equipment”) listed on your proof of coverage document (“Plan Confirmation”).  For the purposes of this Plan, Apple will mean the entity or the successor in title to the entity listed in section 12 below.

If auto-registration is available and you do not receive a separate Plan Confirmation, your original sales receipt will be your Plan Confirmation. The terms of this Plan, the original sales receipt for your Plan and the Plan Confirmation are each part of your service contract. The price of the Plan is contained in the original sales receipt. The hardware service and technical support coverage provided by the Plan is additional to the coverage provided by the manufacturer’s hardware warranty and complimentary technical support.

3. What is Covered?

3.1 Hardware Service

If during the Coverage Period, 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 a covered battery to hold an electrical charge is less than eighty percent (80%) of its original specifications, Apple will either (a) repair the defect at no charge, using new or refurbished 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, and is at least 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.

 (i) Under APP for Mac, (a) one compatible Apple branded display if purchased at the same time as the Covered Equipment, (b) an Apple-branded mouse, Magic Trackpad, Apple Battery Charger and keyboard if included with the Covered Equipment (or purchased with a Mac mini or Mac Pro), and (c) an AirPort Express or AirPort Extreme Base Station, AirPort Time Capsule, Apple memory modules (RAM) and Apple USB SuperDrive if used with the Covered Equipment and originally purchased by you no earlier than two years before the Covered Equipment purchase.

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 product’s eligibility for coverage. 
 
6. Hardware Service Options 
 
6.1 Apple will provide hardware services through one or more of the following options:  
 
(i) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store or an AASP location offering carry-in service. Service will be performed at the location, or the store or service provider may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) location to be serviced. Once you are notified that service is complete, you will promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment. 
 
(ii) Onsite service. Onsite service is available in some countries for many desktop computers if the location of the Covered Equipment is within 50 miles (80 kilometers) radius of an Apple Authorized Onsite Service Provider. Certain parts serviceable under do-it-yourself parts service, as described below, are not be eligible for Onsite service. If Apple determines that onsite service is available, Apple will dispatch a service technician to the location of the Covered Equipment. Service will be performed at the location, or the service technician will transport the Covered Equipment to an AASP or ARS location for repair. If the Covered Equipment is repaired at an AASP or ARS location, Apple will arrange for transportation of the Covered Equipment to your location following service. If the service technician is not granted access to the Covered Equipment at the appointed time, any further onsite visits may be subject to an additional charge. 
 
(iii) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. 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 location in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS location will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if all instructions are followed. Alternatively, Apple or Apple Authorised Service Provider may arrange to pick your Covered Equipment up from you and then once the service is complete, ship the Covered Equipment back to you directly. 
 
(iv) Express replacement or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service.  Express replacement service is available in certain countries for certain Covered Equipment products, and DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment parts, allowing you to service your own product. If express replacement or DIY parts service is available in the circumstances, the following process will apply.  
 
(a) Service where Apple requires return of the replaced product or part. Apple may require a credit card authorization as security for the retail price of the replacement product or part and applicable shipping costs. If you are unable to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you and Apple will offer alternative arrangements for service. Apple will ship a replacement product or part to you with installation instructions, if applicable, and any requirements for the return of the replaced product or part. If you follow the instructions, Apple will cancel the credit card authorization, so you will not be charged for the product or part and shipping to and from your location. If you fail to return the replaced product or part as instructed or return a replaced product 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 relating to express replacement or DIY parts service. Should you require further assistance, contact Apple at the telephone number listed in the Guide. 
 
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 service is requested. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary according to country. You may be responsible for shipping and handling charges if the Covered Equipment cannot be serviced in the country it is in. 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 defective products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards. 
 
7. Your Responsibilities  
 
To receive service or support under the Plan, you agree to comply with the following:  
 
(i) Provide your Plan Agreement Number and a copy of your Plan’s original proof of purchase, if requested;  
 
(ii) Provide information about the symptoms and causes of the issues with the Covered Equipment;  
 
(iii) Respond to requests for information, including but not limited to the Covered Equipment serial number, model, version of the operating system and software installed, any peripherals devices connected or installed on the Covered Equipment, any error messages displayed, actions taken before the Covered Equipment experienced the issue and steps taken to resolve the issue;  
 
(iv) Follow instructions Apple gives you, including but not limited to refraining from sending Apple products and accessories that are not subject to repair or replacement service and packing the Covered Equipment in accordance with shipping instructions; 
 
(v) Update software to currently published releases prior to seeking service; and 
 
(vi) MAKE SURE TO BACKUP SOFTWARE AND DATA RESIDING ON THE COVERED EQUIPMENT. APPLE MAY REINSTALL THE COVERED EQUIPMENT’S ORIGINAL SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION AND SUBSEQUENT UPDATE RELEASES WHILE PERFORMING SERVICE, WHICH WILL RESULT IN THE DELETION OF ALL SOFTWARE AND DATA THAT RESIDED ON THE COVERED EQUIPMENT PRIOR TO SERVICE. DURING APP FOR IPOD SERVICE, APPLE WILL DELETE THE CONTENTS OF THE IPOD AND REFORMAT THE STORAGE MEDIA. Apple will return your iPod or provide a replacement iPod as the iPod was originally configured, subject to applicable updates. Apple may install iPod OS updates as part of hardware service that will prevent the iPod from reverting to an earlier version of the iPod OS. Third party applications installed on the iPod may not be compatible or work with the iPod as a result of the iPod OS update. You will be responsible for reinstalling all other software programs, data and passwords.  
 
8. Limitation of Liability

(i) Carry-in service. Carry-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. Return the Covered Equipment to an Apple-owned retail store or an AASP location offering carry-in service. Service will be performed at the location, or the store or service provider may send the Covered Equipment to an Apple repair service (“ARS”) location to be serviced. Once you are notified that service is complete, you will promptly retrieve the Covered Equipment.

(ii) Onsite service. Onsite service is available in some countries for many desktop computers if the location of the Covered Equipment is within 50 miles (80 kilometers) radius of an Apple Authorized Onsite Service Provider. Certain parts serviceable under do-it-yourself parts service, as described below, are not be eligible for Onsite service. If Apple determines that onsite service is available, Apple will dispatch a service technician to the location of the Covered Equipment. Service will be performed at the location, or the service technician will transport the Covered Equipment to an AASP or ARS location for repair. If the Covered Equipment is repaired at an AASP or ARS location, Apple will arrange for transportation of the Covered Equipment to your location following service. If the service technician is not granted access to the Covered Equipment at the appointed time, any further onsite visits may be subject to an additional charge.

(iii) Mail-in service. Direct mail-in service is available for most Covered Equipment. 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 location in accordance with Apple’s instructions. Once service is complete, the ARS location will return the Covered Equipment to you. Apple will pay for shipping to and from your location if all instructions are followed.

(iv) Express replacement or do-it-yourself (“DIY”) parts service.  Express replacement service is available in certain countries for certain Covered Equipment products, and DIY parts service is available for many Covered Equipment parts, allowing you to service your own product. If express replacement or DIY parts service is available in the circumstances, the following process will apply.

(a) Service where Apple requires return of the replaced product or part. Apple may require a credit card authorization as security for the retail price of the replacement product or part and applicable shipping costs. If you are unable to provide credit card authorization, service may not be available to you and Apple will offer alternative arrangements for service. Apple will ship a replacement product or part to you with installation instructions, if applicable, and any requirements for the return of the replaced product or part. If you follow the instructions, Apple will cancel the credit card authorization, so you will not be charged for the product or part and shipping to and from your location. If you fail to return the replaced product or part as instructed or return a replaced product 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 relating to express replacement or DIY parts service. Should you require further assistance, contact Apple at the telephone number listed in the Guide.

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 service is requested. Service options, parts availability and response times may vary according to country. You may be responsible for shipping and handling charges if the Covered Equipment cannot be serviced in the country it is in. 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 defective products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.
