Snom technology GmbH ("Snom") provides Snom's customer ("customer") with this manufacturer warranty ("warranty") according to the following terms and conditions in their valid version. It applies without prejudice to the customer's statutory warranty rights as well as mandatory statutory liability provisions. The terms of this warranty are met by Snom itself or by an authorised service provider.
To assert any claims from this warranty the customer merely has to contact its specialist retailer or a Snom distributor. The warranty is only processed through the return procedure valid at the time of the warranty claim.
The rights from this warranty are supplementary to the legal and / or contractual warranty claims which customers have against each respective seller.
The warranty period shall not be extended as a result of any warranty services provided, in particular with replacement. In these cases, the warranty period also does not start again.
This warranty only applies to devices that were sold as new devices in perfect working order (so-called "A goods"). Devices sold by Snom, which have been used or (re-)conditioned (so-called "B goods") or (permanent) leased goods are exempt from this warranty. All demo versions of "A goods" products also do not have claim to the warranty mentioned here.
This warranty is on an individual basis and cannot be transferred.
If there is a warranty claim Snom is entitled to make repairs or change defective product parts or meet the claim using replacement products ("replacement"). The replacement may either be a newly manufactured or used product which is of the same or higher quality as the warranty product. Cosmetic wear and slight differences in colour due to repair or replacement cannot be claimed.
If product parts are replaced or a replacement is carried out, the customer agrees to the unconditional transfer of ownership for the concerned parts or products. This does not require any more information from Snom.
Snom will not save or restore any data, configurations or content when carrying out the necessary work for the warranty. All data may possibly be lost and the software may be changed. Under circumstances, the user may not be able to access the original software version when the product is delivered or sent in due to changes to the hardware or software caused by repair or replacement.

o) Devices that have been used in public areas, unless they are specifically for these applications,
p) Devices that have been solely or partly used outside, unless they are specifically for these applications or
q) Devices that have been damaged by inappropriate transport (unsuitable packaging) or other reasons which Snom is not responsible for.
With products with liquid crystal display ("LC displays") pixel errors may occur up to Class III of ISO 9241-307 and are therefore not covered by the warranty.
The warranty for supplied accessories (for example mains parts) is not included.
