3. Limitation of liability

Consumers in jurisdictions that enjoy the benefits of consumer protection laws or regulations also enjoy the benefits due under this product guarantee, in addition to any rights and entitlements arising from those laws and regulations. No provision of this product guarantee affects the consumer protection laws granted by the applicable mandatory statutory regulations, including consumer protection laws, to press claims for damages against LEICA in the event of complete or partial non-performance or failure to properly perform its contractual obligations.

Insofar as is permitted under applicable law, LEICA and its employees and agents will not under any circumstances accept liability towards you or to your legal successors for indirect or consequential damage, including but not limited to the costs for restoring, reprogramming or reproducing programs or data or for any costs incurred as a result of the loss of confidentiality of data, the loss of business opportunities, loss of profit, lost sales or lost savings caused by the obligations of LEICA under this product guarantee.

Your Leica Camera AG

Guarantee Conditions

Leica Camera AG (“LEICA”) provides a one-year guarantee valid from the data of purchase from an authorized LEICA dealer for your LEICA product, including any accessories contained in the associated original packaging (collectively referred to as “Protected Product”). The product guarantee is subject to these guarantee conditions. Your statutory guarantee rights with respect to the retailer of your LEICA products remain unaffected by the normal one year LEICA product guarantee.

1. Scope of the Guarantee

1.1. Guarantees

The term of the product guarantee (“Period of Cover”) commences on the date of purchase from an authorized LEICA dealer. It terminates after a period of one year or after 100,000 shutter releases, whichever occurs first.

During the Period of Cover, complaints based on manufacturing faults and material defects will be remedied free of charge by repair, replacement of defective parts or exchange for an equivalent product in perfect condition, at the discretion of LEICA. The product guarantee does not cover any other claims on whatever legal grounds apart from those mentioned above. The replaced products or parts become the property of LEICA.

1.2. Limitations

The product guarantee does not provide cover for:

(I) installation, removal or disposal of the Protected Product nor for the installation, removal, repair or maintenance of products that are not Protected Products (including accessories, additional components or other devices) or the electrical connection beyond the Protected Product;

(II) Protected Products whose serial number has been modified, rendered illegible or removed;

(III) use of the Protected Product in an industrial application, such as:

a) installation of the Protected Product in an aircraft for aerial photography purposes;

b) use of the Protected Product to create reproductions;

c) use of the Protected Product on a production line for quality control or production
monitoring purposes;

(IV) damage caused by improper handling (e.g., drop/impact, water, dust/sand).

(V)  damage to a Protected Product caused by accident, through misuse, neglect, improper use (including incorrect installation, repair or maintenance work that was not carried out by LEICA or one of its authorized partners), unauthorized modifications, extreme environmental conditions (including extremes of temperature and very high levels of humidity), extreme physical or electrical loading, interference, fluctuations or voltage spikes in the power supply, lightning, static electricity, fire, force majeure or other external influences;

(VI) problems caused by components that are not part of the Protected Product, including products not supplied by LEICA, irrespective of whether or not these were purchased with the Protected Product;

(VII) services required to fulfill legal requirements that only came into force after the start of the Period of Cover of the product guarantee;

(VIII) faults resulting from normal use and wear and tear of the Protected Product;

(IX) purely cosmetic blemishes on the Protected Products (especially scratches, dents and dust);

(X)  wearing parts, e.g., batteries, unless the damage was caused by a material or manufacturing fault;

(XI) preventative maintenance of the Protected Product;

2.   Your Obligations

To obtain the services available under the product guarantee, the customer undertakes:

(I) to provide LEICA at its request with a copy of the original purchase receipts for the Protected Product;

(II) to provide information about the symptoms and causes of the problems with the Protected Product;

(III) to reply to questions, including requests for the serial number of the Protected Product, the model, the firmware version, peripherals connected to the Protected Product, error messages displayed, the actions performed before the problem manifested itself on the Protected Product and the measures taken to solve the problem;

(IV) to follow the instructions issued to you by LEICA, including the instruction not to send to
LEICA any products or accessories for which no repair or replacement service is available, and to follow the instructions to pack the Protected Product according to the shipping instructions;

(V)  to update the firmware to the most recent version before the customer avails himself of the service;

(VI) when making a guarantee claim, to first send the Protected Product with a description of the complaint to his dealer. The customer will not contact LEICA Customer Care until this has been done or the second contact partner in the national agency is unable to help the customer.
Contact addresses are located at the end of this document.

LEICA recommends making backup copies of all data in the Protected Products before sending the Protected Products to LEICA for repair or replacement.

3. Limitation of liability

Consumers in jurisdictions that enjoy the benefits of consumer protection laws or

regulations also enjoy the benefits available to them under this product guarantee in addition to all the rights and entitlements arising from such laws and regulations. No provision of this product guarantee affects the consumer protection laws granted by the applicable mandatory statutory regulations, including consumer protection laws, to press claims for damages against LEICA in the event of its complete or partial non-performance or the failure to properly perform its contractual obligations.

Insofar as is permitted under applicable law, LEICA and its employee and agents will not under any circumstances accept liability to you or to your legal successors for indirect or consequential damage, including but not limited to the costs for the recreation, reprogramming or reproduction of programs or data or for any costs incurred as a result of the loss of confidentiality of data, the loss of business opportunities, loss of profit, lost sales or lost savings caused by the obligations of LEICA under this product guarantee. Insofar as is permitted under applicable law, the liability under this product guarantee of LEICA and its employees and agents towards you and your legal successors is limited to the amount that you paid for the Protected Product.

In particular, LEICA does not guarantee

(I) that LEICA will repair or replace the Protected Product without risk for or loss of programs or data,

(II)  that the product will operate without interruption or without error.

No provision of this agreement will exclude or limit the liability of LEICA for

(I)   death or bodily injury or

(II)  fraud caused by the negligence of LEICA.

If liability can be limited according to the aforementioned laws and regulations, the liability of LEICA shall, at the discretion of LEICA, be limited to the replacement or the repair of the Protected Product or the provision of the service. According to the laws of some countries, states or regions, it is forbidden to exclude or to limit liability for accidental or consequential damage. Some or all of the aforementioned limitations may therefore not be applicable in your case.

4. Other Provisions

(I)   Should any individual provision or any part of any provision of these guarantee conditions be or become void, illegal or unenforceable, the validity of the remaining provisions hereof shall in no way be affected. In such a case this provision or part of a provision shall be removed from these guarantee conditions.

(II)  These guarantee conditions are subject to the law of the country in which the product was purchased. This choice does not encompass the provisions of international private law or the UN Conventions on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.

(III) LEICA is entitled to subcontract a third party to fulfill the duties of LEICA or to transfer the duties of LEICA under this contract to a third party; this does not absolve LEICA of its obligations to fulfill the contract with respect to you.

(IV) LEICA is not responsible for any non-fulfillment or delayed fulfillment of the product guarantee if this can be attributed to reasons beyond its reasonable control.

(V)  You agree that all the information and data you provide to LEICA as part of this product guarantee is neither confidential nor protected. You furthermore agree that LEICA may collect your data while performing the services and use such data on your behalf. This may also involve the transmission of your data to companies or service providers connected with LEICA that may be located in countries that do not enjoy the same level of data protection as found in your country of residence, including Australia, Canada, the Member States of the European Union, India, Japan, China and the USA.

(VI) LEICA has implemented security measures that are designed to protect your data from illegal access or disclosure and from unauthorized destruction. You are responsible for the instructions you give LEICA regarding the use of your data. LEICA shall endeavor to adhere to these instructions insofar as is reasonable for the performance of the services and its support obligations under the product guarantee. If you do not agree with the above or if you have any questions about the effect that this processing method has on your data, please contact LEICA on the telephone number below.

(VII) Any verbal statements, assurances or supplementary agreements do not constitute part of this guarantee. Amendments and/or supplementary agreements are only valid if they are set out in writing and confirmed by legally binding signatures. This also applies to agreements regarding the requirement for the written form itself.

(VIII) The exclusive place of jurisdiction is the registered office of LEICA. This does not affect any exclusively statutory legal venues.
