Anki's published guidelines include but are not limited to information contained in technical specifications, user manuals and service communications.

What is Not Covered by This Warranty?

This warranty does not apply to any non-Anki branded hardware products or any software, even if packaged or sold with Anki hardware. Manufacturers, suppliers, or publishers, other than Anki, may provide their own warranties to you but Anki, in so far as permitted by law, provides their products "AS IS". Software distributed by Anki with or without the Anki brand is not covered by this warranty. Please refer to the licensing agreement accompanying the software for details of your rights with respect to its use. Anki does not warrant that the operation of the Anki Product will be uninterrupted or error-free. Anki is not responsible for damage arising from failure to follow instructions relating to the Anki Product's use.

This warranty does not apply: (a) to consumable parts, such as batteries, unless failure has occurred due to a defect in materials or workmanship; (b) to cosmetic damage, including but not limited to scratches, dents and broken plastic on ports; (c) to damage caused by use with another product; (d) to damage caused by accident, abuse, misuse, liquid contact, fire, earthquake or other external cause; (e) to damage caused by operating the Anki Product outside Anki's published guidelines; (f) to damage caused by service (including upgrades and expansions) performed by anyone who is not a representative of Anki or an Anki Authorized Service Provider ("AASP"); (g) to an Anki Product that has been modified to alter functionality or capability without the written permission of Anki; (h) to defects caused by normal wear and tear or otherwise due to the normal aging of the Anki Product, or (i) if any serial number has been removed or defaced from the Anki Product.

Your Responsibilities

Anki reserves the right to change the method by which Anki may provide warranty service to you, and your Anki Product's eligibility to receive a particular method of service.

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, Anki may repair or replace products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.

What will Anki do in the Event the Warranty is Breached?

If during the Warranty Period you submit a valid claim to Anki or an AASP, Anki will, at its option, (i) repair the Anki Product using new or previously used parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, (ii) replace the Anki Product with a product that is at least functionally equivalent to the Anki Product and is formed from new and/or previously used parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability.

Anki may request that you replace certain user-installable parts or products. A replacement part or product, including a user-installable part that has been installed in accordance with instructions provided by Anki, assumes the remaining warranty of the Anki Product or ninety (90) days from the date of replacement or repair, whichever provides longer coverage for you. When a product or part is replaced or a refund provided, any replacement item becomes your property and the replaced item becomes Anki's property.
