WARRANTY AND USE CONDITIONS
BrookPad LLC (hereafter referred to as the "Guarantor") offers a free-of-charge malfunction removal service for our devices. To take advantage of this service, customers must deliver the device to our Authorized Service Center along with the original proof of purchase. To ensure a smooth and efficient service, customers are required to provide information detailing the issue prior to sending the device. This information can be included with the parcel or sent by email to our service team. If a product is shipped back to us, we kindly request that customers provide a signed proof of delivery to confirm the returned parcel's identity.
We offer a 12-month default warranty for all new products purchased through our site. This warranty is provided by the manufacturer and is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. For those who require additional protection, we offer an extended warranty option that can extend the warranty period up to 5 years.
In the case of a warranty claim, our team is authorized to provide manufacturer warranty services for new BrookPad products purchased from third-party sites. Repairs will be performed as soon as possible, with a maximum turnaround time of twenty-eight working days. If any of the main mechanisms need to be replaced, the repair time may be extended while we wait for the parts to be delivered from the manufacturer. The warranty period will be extended by the amount of time the device is at the Authorized Service Center.
The warranty may not apply if:
- The proof of purchase and serial number of the device are inconsistent with each other, or if it is impossible to read the data contained in them.
- Breach of seals or unauthorized service is found to have interfered with the device.
- The defect arises as a result of the following conditions not being met:
- Failure to comply with the conditions of use or activities included in normal operating service.
- Lack of protection against limescale in the water.
- Failure to use additional filters when the water is hard and contains limescale.
- Slow settling of limescale and sediment that can impair the performance of the device.
- Failures in the municipal network that can cause sludge and sand to damage the device after switching on again.
- Use of the device for a purpose other than its intended use.
- Use of the device with a weight greater than 120 kg.
- Causes of external nature, such as mechanical damage, cracks, abrasion of the device coating, thermal damage, chemical contamination, liquid flooding, strong shocks, radiation, use of improper consumables, and/or power sources.
- Device malfunction or a defect in another device component.
In the event that a warranty claim is not applicable due to warranty expiration or any other reasons specified in the warranty terms, we offer After Warranty Service to our customers. However, in such cases, the customer is responsible for delivering the device to one of our Authorized Service Centers.
Please note that we cannot be held responsible for any losses resulting from the improper operation of the device or data loss. It is important to note that the warranty for our consumer goods does not limit, exclude or suspend the buyer's legal rights resulting from the non-compliance of the goods with the contract.
Please be advised that the warranty does not cover the cost of delivering the device to an Authorized Service Center. Additionally, consumables such as batteries, seals, filters, and light sources are not covered by the warranty.
AFTER WARRANTY REPAIR SERVICE
BrookPad (hereafter referred to as the "Guarantor") offers a repair service for any device malfunctions for a service fee, if repair is possible. The device must be delivered to one of our Authorized Service Centers for evaluation and repair.
We are also authorized to provide after-warranty repair services for BrookPad products purchased directly or from third-party sites. The cost of repair will depend on the sum of replacement parts, labor, and any additional services used, such as pick-up service from the customer's provided address. However, the cost of repair, excluding any additional services used, will not exceed the current retail recommended price of the device, if repair is possible.
Our repair service aims to complete the repair as soon as possible, with a maximum turnaround time of twenty-eight working days. However, if any of the main mechanisms need to be replaced, the repair time may be extended while we wait for the parts to be delivered from the manufacturer. Please note that the repair service does not cover the cost of delivering the device to an Authorized Service Center.
