If You purchased this Service Contract on a date later than the purchase of Your Product, this Service Contract will take effect 30 days after the purchase of the Service Contract and will cover Your Product up to the coverage end date or until cancelled by either You or Us. Please see Your coverage start date and coverage term on the Declarations Page for Your coverage specifics.

WHAT IS COVERED:

MECHANICAL BREAKDOWN ONLY – This Service Contract provides repair or replacement coverage for Product hardware failures due to normal wear and tear. Should We repair Your Product, We will restore its hardware and preloaded manufacturer’s software functionality to the manufacturer’s written specifications.

MECHANICAL BREAKDOWN AND ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE – This Service Contract provides repair or replacement coverage for Product hardware failures due to normal wear and tear including accidental damage (such as drops, liquid spills, and cracks). Should We repair Your Product, We will restore its hardware and preloaded manufacturer’s software functionality to the manufacturer’s written specifications.

IF YOU NEED SERVICE:

All claims must be reported as soon as reasonably possible. This Service Contract covers only those claims reported within ninety (90) days of the date of the Product’s failure.

TELEPHONE HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE SUBSCRIBER ASSISTANCE: To arrange for service, call the toll free number or visit Us at the website indicated on the Declarations Page. A service representative will assist You by telephone and/or remote online support to diagnose any technical difficulties that may exist with Your Product’s hardware or preloaded manufacturer’s software. To the extent that Our telephone diagnosis confirms a covered hardware failure, We will process Your claim and arrange for any applicable service of Your Product. Our level of technical service does not support customized or proprietary software, applications not included by the manufacturer of Your Product at no additional cost, or software errors that confirm improperly functioning or defective software. Additionally, this Service Contract does not provide education on how to utilize or perform tasks using any type of software program, preloaded or other

SERVICE LOCATION: Repairs will be performed at an authorized repair center determined by Us. Service will be available and rendered during the regular working hours and workweek of the product repair centers. If Your Product requires an approved repair more than once within a sixty (60) day period, service must be completed by the original repair center.

REPLACEMENT OPTION: At Our option, following Our telephone diagnosis, We will either:

  1. Replace Your Product with a new, refurbished, or recertified product of like kind and quality if We are unable to repair Your Product or if the repair cost exceeds the current retail replacement value of Your Product. While We will try to accommodate specific replacement preferences such as equipment color, cosmetics, or features, this request is not guaranteed. The price of the replacement product shall not exceed the maximum replacement value of the original Product less any applicable deductible. If We replace Your Product, We will ship the replacement product to You; or
  2. Issue a cash credit equal to the value of the replacement product, not to exceed the maximum replacement value of the original Product less any applicable deductible. The cash credit, with Your authorization, will be deposited in Your account with Samsung and may be used by You toward the purchase of any eligible replacement product of Your choice; or
  3. Provide a settlement equal to the value of the replacement product, not to exceed the maximum replacement value of the original Product less any applicable deductible.

When You receive either the replacement product, cash credit, or settlement, the damaged/unrepairable Product becomes Our property. You are responsible for returning the damaged/unrepairable Product to Us and any subsequent shipping costs such as express or expedited shipping, or any reshipping expenses.

Once We receive the damaged/unrepairable Product, We will inspect the Product and validate that the reported hardware failure is covered under this Service Contract. Should We determine that the failure resulted from an Exclusion in this Service Contract, We will contact You with Our findings and arrange either to:

  1. Charge to You the difference between the value of the replacement product, cash credit, or settlement and the current market value of the damaged/unrepairable Product; or
  2. Return the Product to You and charge You the value price of the replacement product, cash credit, or settlement; or
  3. Return the Product to You after We receive the replacement product, cash credit, or settlement. The returned replacement product must be in the same condition that We sent it to You.
