Aug. 1. 2014
Brinno stands behind every product we make with a no-hassles warranty.
Warranty coverage may be extended, depending on your region. Brinno
Incorporated warrants the product for a minimum of one year from the original
date of purchase (invoice date) against defects in material and workmanship
under use as instructed by the user’s manual. Brinno, at its option, shall repair
or replace the defective unit covered by this warranty. Please retain the dated
sales receipt/invoice as evidence of the date of purchase. You will need it for any
warranty service.
Brinno Incorporated warrants its products against defects in material or
workmanship for the time period and as set forth below. Pursuant to this Limited
Warranty, Brinno will at its option, (i) repair the product using new or refurbished
parts or (ii) replace the product with a new or refurbished product. For purposes
of this Limited Warranty, “refurbished” means a product or part that has been
returned to its original specifications. In the event of a defect, these are your
exclusive remedies.
No returns or repairs will be accepted without a proper RMA approval (return
merchandise authorization) by Brinno’s dealers, distributors, or Brinno
headquarter in Asia. In order to keep this warranty in effect, the product must
have been handled and used as prescribed in the instructions accompanying

Warranty Periods for Brinno Refurbished Units When Purchased
from a Retail
Some retail stores do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or
consequential damages, or allow limitations on how long an implied warranty
lasts, so the limited warranty or exclusions may not apply to you. This Limited
Warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may have other rights which vary
from country to country, state to state, and store to store.
This Limited Warranty shall apply to any repair, replacement part or replacement
product for the remainder of the original Limited Warranty period or for one
(1) year, whichever is longer. Any parts or product replaced under this Limited

headquarter in Asia elects to replace the product after this Labor Warranty has
expired but while the Parts Warranty below is still in effect, it will do so for the
applicable labor charge.
For a period of one (1) year from the original date of purchase of product (“Parts
Warranty”), Brinno will supply new or refurbished replacement parts in exchange
for parts determined to be defective.
This Limited Warranty only covers product issues caused by defects in material
or workmanship during ordinary consumer use; it does not cover product issues
caused by any other reason, including but not limited to product issues due to
commercial use, acts of God, misuse, limitations of technology, or modification of
or to any part of the Brinno product. This Limited Warranty does not cover Brinno
products sold AS IS or WITH ALL FAULTS or consumables (such as fuses, batteries,
Micro SD cards, or Pen Drivers). This Limited Warranty is invalid if the factory
applied serial number has been altered or removed from the product.
For Brinno products no longer covered by warranty we use a flat rate estimate
system to determine the cost of the repair. The cost of repair is based on the
typical time and parts needed to service the unit back to full operating condition.
It is a set fee and will not increase if more than the typical time is required to make
the repair. A letter or e-mail will be sent to you with all charges required. No work
will be done without your approval and there is no charge to you should you
choose not to proceed with the repair.
Products received without identification or contact information will be listed as
Unclaimed. We will hold Unclaimed products for 90 days. After 90 days without
contact from you to identify and claim your product, we reserve the right to
discard the Unclaimed products without any form of compensation.
