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

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

ARBITRATION:

ARBITRATION: READ THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION PROVISION (“PROVISION”) CAREFULLY. IT LIMITS CERTAIN OF YOUR RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO OBTAIN RELIEF OR DAMAGES THROUGH COURT ACTION.

To begin Arbitration, either You or We must make a written demand to the other party for arbitration. The Arbitration will take place before a single arbitrator. It will be administered in keeping with the Expedited Procedures of the Commercial Arbitration Rules (“Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in effect when the claim is filed. You may get a copy of these AAA’s Rules by contacting AAA at 1633 Broadway, 10th Floor, New York, NY 10019, calling (800) 778-7879 or visiting www.adr.org. The filing fees to begin and carry out arbitration will be shared equally between You and Us. This does not prohibit the arbitrator from giving the winning party their fees and expenses of the arbitration. Unless You and We agree, the arbitration will take place in the county and state where You live. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq., will govern and no state, local or other arbitration law will apply. YOU AGREE AND UNDERSTAND THAT this arbitration provision means that You give up Your right to go to court on any claim covered by this provision. You also agree that any arbitration proceeding will only consider Your Claims. Claims by, or on behalf of, other individuals will not be arbitrated in any proceeding that is considering Your Claims. Please refer to the State Disclosures section of this Contract for any added requirements in Your state. In the event this Arbitration provision is not approved by the appropriate state regulatory agency, and/or is stricken, severed, or otherwise deemed unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, You and We specifically agree to waive and forever give up the right to a trial by jury. Instead, in the event any litigation arises between You and Us, any such lawsuit will be tried before a judge, and a jury will not be impaneled or struck.
