PARTS AND LABOR (6 MONTHS)
Elane warrants your Scale to be free from factory defects in material and workmanship
for parts and labor from the date of original purchase. The obligation under this
warranty is limited to repairing or replacing any defective part and providing all
necessary labor for 6 months in connection with the correction of any defect. If a Scale
fails within the first 30 days from the date of purchase, Elane will replace the defective
Scale if it is returned freight prepaid by the owner to Elane's Representative named
below. After 30 days, Elane will at its option, repair or replace a defective Scale so
returned by an owner. Return freight will be prepaid unless a unit is to be returned to
any address outside of the United States, then shipping charges must be paid in
advance by the owner.
ALL WARRANTY REPAIRS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY
PROOF OF PURCHASE
The exchange of any factory defective Scale is at the exclusive option of Elane and in
no event does Elane assume liability for any damage beyond the refund of the
purchase price, or the replacement or repair of the Scale. Any usage of a Scale for
purposes other than those intended by its inherent nature, and any usage in
connection with electrical systems other than those for which the unit was designed will
VOID this warranty. All implied warranties to a Scale, except to the extent prohibited by
applicable law, shall have no greater duration than the warranty period set forth herein.
No warranties, whether expressed or implied, including warranties of merchantability or
fitness shall apply to a Scale after the warranty period has expired. Elane shall not be
liable for liabilities or obligations for damages, including but not limited to special,
indirect, or consequential damages, or loss of use, revenue, or profits, in connection
with or arising out of any failure or defect in a Scale. Some states do not allow
limitation on how long an implied warranty last, and exclusions or limitations of
incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusions may not
apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have other
rights which vary from state to state. This warranty extends only to the original
purchaser and is not assignable or transferable. This warranty shall not apply to any
Scale which has been improperly maintained or repaired including the installation of
parts or accessories that do not conform to the quality and specifications of the original
components or parts, or that may have been subject to alterations, abuse, misuse,
neglect (including improper installation), accidental, or intentional damage, or to any
product which may have had serial numbers or model numbers altered, defaced or
removed. Any modification or repair by unauthorized parties will VOID this warranty.
No informal dispute settlement mechanism as allowed under The Magnuson-Moss
Warranties/ Federal Trade Commission Improvements Act, Public Law 93-637 (1975)
is available under this warranty. Although it is not mandatory, to avoid unnecessary
difficulties in determining your eligibility for warranty work, we suggest you fill out your
warranty Registration Card and mail it to the address listed on the card within ten (10)
days after purchase of your Scale.
