Altan Robotech (USA) Inc. (‘Altan’, ‘We’, ‘Our’, ‘Us’) warrants to the Warranty Registree (“you” or “your”), the person who registers the Warranty Registration Code supplied with the Product (“Giddel”, “Charging Station” and “Power Cord”) excluding batteries shall be free from defects and malfunctions during the period of one (1) year from the date of purchase also known as “Warranty Period” subject to the terms and conditions set out below. In the case of batteries, a “Warranty Period” of six (6) months shall apply from the date of purchase and the “Warranty Period” shall be read accordingly throughout this document. This Limited Warranty is limited to the Warranty Registree only, and is non-transferable, except where prohibited by applicable law. In order to receive the coverage this Limited Warranty provides the warranty registration code must be registered at http://altanrobotech.com/warranty-registration/ within 30 days of purchase of the Product. If the Product fails to meet the warranty standard, We shall, within a commercially reasonable period, either repair or replace the Product free of charge as described below. This Limited Warranty also limits all implied warranties to the duration of the Warranty Period. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
This Limited Warranty is only valid and enforceable in the country where you purchased the Product, provided that the said country is on the list of Specified Countries at our web site (http://altanrobotech.com) when you purchased the Product. This Limited Warranty coverage terminates if you sell or otherwise transfer the Product. This Limited Warranty does not cover any problem that is caused by abuse, misuse, or an act of nature (such as a flood). Also, consequential and incidental damages are not recoverable under this Limited Warranty. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
This Limited Warranty does not cover any damage, deterioration or malfunction resulting from any alteration, modification, improper or unreasonable use or maintenance, misuse, abuse, accident, neglect, exposure to excess moisture, fire, improper packing and shipping, lightning, power surges, or other acts of nature. This Limited Warranty does not cover any other cause which does not relate directly to a defect in materials and/or workmanship of the Product and does not cover cables or accessories used in conjunction with the Product.
Making a Claim under Limited Warranty
If you wish to make a warranty claim, please contact your local distributor or Altan, whose contact details can be found at http://altanrobotech.com. Please have the serial number of your Product ready and the original proof of purchase, showing the date of purchase. Our people will advise you of the process involved in making a claim.
Any claim under the Limited Warranty is subject to you notifying Us (or Our authorised service company/distributor) of the alleged defect within a reasonable period of time from the time it came to your attention, but no later than the expiry date of the Warranty Period.
All claims submitted under the Limited Warranty are subject to Altan’s review. Altan reserves the right to dismiss submitted claims at any stage as inapplicable under the Limited Warranty, at Altan’s sole discretion.

Any part(s) repaired or replaced during the Warranty Period shall be warranted for the remainder of the original Warranty Period.
Replacements or repaired Products, as applicable, shall be returned to you as soon as possible. All parts of the Product or other equipment that We replace shall become Our property.
