WHAT IS COVERED
LEX Services Inc.'s ("LEX") Extended Warranty extends the coverage provided by the manufacturer or official Philippine distributor of the appliance for parts and labor ("Manufacturer's Warranty") for an appliance or gadget (the "Product") for a period as indicated in the Extended Warranty Contract ("Extended Warranty Period").
The Extended Warranty Period shall commence immediately upon the expiry of the Manufacturer's Warranty. The date of purchase of the Product ("Item Purchase Date") and the length of the Manufacturer's Warranty shall be stated on the Extended Warranty Contract, for purposes of determining the commencement date of the Extended Warranty Period.
In the event of a breakdown of the Product during the Extended Warranty Period, the Dealer, through LEX, as its warranty extension program administrator, shall arrange for an authorized service center to repair or replace the part/s which may be found defective and is part of the coverage of the Manufacturer's Warranty.
- "Product" shall be defined as the appliance, mobile phone, tablet, or gadget purchased, excluding its accessories and batteries.
- "Breakdown" shall be defined as failure of the covered part or component to work as it was designed to work under normal usage. Only if the Manufacturer's Warranty covers on-site service charges shall LEX cover on-site service.
This Contract's total coverage, including reimbursement for all covered check-up/transport/other fees incurred in connection with the Product's repair/replacement/diagnosis, shall not exceed the amount the customer paid for the Product indicated in the Sales Invoice issued by the Dealer, or the highest appliance price for the appliance product line/category covered by LEX at the time of the purchase of the Product, identified in the Extended Warranty Contract as the LEX Coverage Amount, whichever is lower.
Only Products (i) manufactured for use or distributed in, and legally imported into, the Philippines; (ii) purchased new from any recognized and authorized dealer listed on LEX's website or Online Sales Portal and indicated on the application form, which at the time of purchase included the Manufacturer's Warranty valid in the Philippines; and (iii) are included in the Dealer's official LEX Warranty Extension Price List, shall be eligible.
All eligible Products shall exclusively be for personal and household use only.
"Personal and household use only" shall mean any use within the residential premises of the customer and/or for the use of his/her family members and/or servant(s), and shall exclude: (i) use for any purpose other than for which the Product was intended; (ii) use by any person or common use by multiple users, other than the owner's family members, and/or servants; (iii) use outside the premises of the customer's residence or any form of outdoor use, unless the Product is specifically designed for such; (iv) use for business purposes, such as but not limited to office, warehouse, clinic, government use; (v) any form of use for income and/or rental/lease; and (vi) use that is similar or analogous to the foregoing.
For Contracts issued by a Dealer for appliances, mobile phones, tablets, or gadgets not included in the Dealer's LEX Warranty Extension Price List at the time of purchase, LEX shall reserve the sole right to determine whether to cover the claim or to cancel the Contract, with a full refund of the paid warranty extension price to be provided to the customer.
The original sales invoice issued by the Dealer indicating the inclusion of Extended Warranty in the purchase of the Product, the two (2)-page Extended Warranty Contract, and, if applicable, the airway bill or delivery receipt indicating the Product's International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) or Serial Number should be submitted by the Customer to LEX for the repair or replacement of the Product.
CHECKUP & REPAIR
- In case of breakdown of the Product, notify LEX by contacting 0919-170-0131, [email protected], or facebook.com/lexservicesph (direct message), within: (i) fifteen (15) calendar days from the date when the breakdown occurred for regular warranty extension claims, or (ii) forty-eight (48) hours from the time the breakdown occurred for Accidental Damage, including Liquid Damage, ("ADLD") claims.
- Upon verifying the customer's contract information, LEX shall promptly coordinate with the nearest authorized service center.
- The customer should bring the Product to the authorized service center or Dealer, or present the Product to LEX's authorized courier/service center/Dealer during the scheduled pick-up or on-site visit arranged by LEX, for check-up and/or repair within fifteen (15) calendar days from the date LEX was first notified of the Product breakdown, unless a longer period is approved by LEX in writing. Failure of the Customer to comply with the requirements to notify LEX and present the Product, as mentioned above, shall make the Product ineligible for repair/replacement.
- If check-up, repair or replacement is made by unauthorized personnel or establishments, the Product shall be considered "Tampered". For Tampered Products, the cost of repair/replacement shall not be reimbursed to the Customer. Also, in the case of Tampered Products, the Contract shall be considered terminated automatically.
- Prior to commencing any repair and/or replacement due to Product breakdown, the authorized service center must first obtain approval from LEX. No reimbursement or payment shall be given for non-compliance with this condition. Only those parts and labor charges indicated in the quotation or estimate approved by LEX shall be paid.
- LEX has the sole right to determine whether a breakdown will be remedied by repair or replacement. At its sole option, LEX will either: (i) cause the repair of the Product using new or previously used parts equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) cause the one (1)-time replacement of the Product with one that at least functionally equivalent to the defective Product and is formed from new and/or previously used parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability. In case of replacement, the cost of the replacement Product shall not exceed the original purchase amount of the Product, or the LEX Coverage Amount, whichever is lower.
- If the Product has been repaired during the Extended Warranty Period and a replacement shall be implemented, the reimbursement shall not exceed the LEX Coverage Amount less the amount paid for the repairs already done during the Extended Warranty Period. In the event of replacement, the Product shall be surrendered to LEX before replacement or release of cash settlement.
- The cost of bringing the defective Product to LEX or any office it shall designate shall be for the customer's account.
- If the spare part is not available from stocks held in the Philippines, LEX may pay the amount of such part; provided that the amount paid shall be limited to:
- The price quoted in the latest catalogue or price list issued by the manufacturer or its agents in the Philippines, or, if no such catalogue or price list exists, the price last obtained from the manufacturer plus the reasonable cost of transport other than by air to the Philippines, and the amount of the relative import duty; and
- The reasonable cost of fitting such part by LEX's authorized service center, which cost may be paid by LEX directly to the said service center.
- The amount LEX shall pay for the spare part, as described above, shall not exceed the purchase price of the Product or the LEX Coverage Amount, whichever is lower.
- If the customer, prior to the expiry of the Extended Warranty Period, can purchase the spare part after a settlement is made above, he/she shall personally arrange for LEX's authorized service center to install the said part or coordinate with LEX to have the latter arrange such installation by an authorized service center. For this purpose, the customer shall immediately, but not later than fifteen (15) calendar days from the customer's actual receipt of the settlement amount, present the Product and the part to the authorized service center for installation. In cases where the customer makes a personal arrangement with the authorized service center, the customer shall be responsible for settling payment of such installation costs. When coordination with the service center is conducted by LEX, LEX shall settle the cost of installation directly to the service center.
- Only one (1)-time replacement shall apply for optical lens, DVD loader, MPEG board, electronic control board, lens filter, fuses, lamps or bulbs in projection TVs, compressor, motor, evaporator, condenser and tub/base assembly.
