7. SWAPPIE WARRANTY™ TERMS
Swappie always provides a 12-month Swappie Warranty™ for all phones, devices and other products. Any detected faults are repaired by Swappie. The warranty terms separately specify those parts of a product, device or phone that are not covered by the Swappie Warranty™.
The Swappie Warranty™ contains the terms as defined by Swappie, which are listed in the terms below. Swappie products include liability for defects defined by European consumer protection law.
The period of validity for the Swappie Warranty™ is 12 months, starting from the purchasing date. The area of validity for the warranty is the country in which the phone has been purchased.
The following services are included in our warranty:
- Guaranteed fast repair service. Upon receiving the phone/device, we will begin the repair process immediately within 24 hours.
- Fault diagnosis for free. All our customers receive free fault diagnosis, regardless of whether the device in question is covered by Swappie’s liability for defects.
- Replacement device. If we are unable to return the device to its earlier condition, we will try to replace it with another corresponding model.
If it appears that the device’s fault has been caused by the Customer, Swappie is not liable for it. Possible such causes include, for example, causing physical damage to the device, using the device contrary to its instructions, or other negligent actions.
The detected fault will be repaired in our repair service. If the availability of spare parts is poor, the parts are unreasonably expensive or the device otherwise proves to not be worthy of repairing, the faulty device in question will be replaced with a corresponding model. Thanks to our fast repair service, Swappie’s warranty repair takes only up to 14 working days on average from the time the device has arrived to the repair service. In some cases, such as during public holidays or for other reasons, the repair process may take longer. In order for the device to be repaired within a reasonable time, the quality of the device, availability of spare parts, extent of the fault or other special technical properties must also be taken into account. Swappie may also agree on a price reduction or refund if repairing the fault is not worth it, the fault is minimal or the device cannot be repaired.
The following should be noted about the warranty:
• Batteries are not covered by the Swappie Warranty™.
• The screen breaking or cracking is not covered by the Swappie Warranty™.
• Software faults are not covered by the Swappie Warranty™.
• Removing viruses or other malware from the phone is not covered by the Swappie Warranty™.
• If the device has been plugged into an unearthed outlet, the damages are not covered by the Swappie Warranty™.
• Severing the power supply cables or physically opening the device will void the Swappie Warranty™.
• Damage to the product during shipment due to the sender’s negligence is not covered by the Swappie Warranty™. Packages should always be packed protectively enough.
• The Swappie Warranty™ is voided if the phone’s serial number or IMEI has been removed or otherwise made unreadable.
• Other indirect or purely financial damages caused by the breakage of the product, such as the destruction of files, are not covered by the Swappie Warranty™.
• The Swappie Warranty™ is voided if the phone’s glass/home button/camera/other features have broken due to improper use, such as the phone having been dropped or having hit something.
• The Swappie Warranty™ is voided, if a product bought from Swappie has been repaired inappropriately by the customer himself or a third party.

The Customer must inform us about any faults as soon as possible after they have been detected. Notifying us is to be done by email at email@example.com or through our chat. Upon notifying us and having received instructions on how to proceed, the faulty product is to be sent to us at the address and via the delivery service specified in the instructions.
The Customer is responsible for backing up the files on the device before sending it in for repair. If the device is delivered and returned so that it is marked as fragile, meaning that the handling of the device requires special measures, the Customer is liable to pay for the incurred delivery costs.
Products and services are always sold as they are. Swappie is not liable for any direct or indirect costs, nor loss of income incurred by faults and/or use of the products and services.
