Examples are cables, bags, cases, illuminants, spotlights, LEDs, faders and laser diodes. The extended warranty shall also not apply if defects have occurred in the product due to incorrect operation or non-observance of operating instructions, improper use, inappropriate use, overloading or lack of maintenance and care, or defects have been caused in the product due to the use of accessories, supplementary parts or replacement parts which are not original parts, or to products to which changes or additions have been made, or in the event of minor deviations from the expected quality if such deviations are irrelevant to the value and fitness for use of the product. For all acknowledged defects, we shall be exclusively responsible to choose between remedying the defect by repairing it free of charge or replacing it with a faultless product (which may also be a successor model etc.). Warranty services that are provided shall not lead to an extension or restart of the warranty period. Replaced products or components become our property. In order to assert the warranty, a sales receipt or other proof of purchase must be presented.

Please contact our service department for warranty processing.
