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 Product Service FAQ webpages described 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.
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 . 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.
v. Additional Terms. In addition to the terms described herein, Apple’s Repair Terms and Conditions, as described at https://www.apple.com/legal/sales-support/terms/repair/generalservice.html will apply.
