LIMITED PRODUCT WARRANTY
Your Lomi™ product (the “Product”) is covered by an Open Mind Developments Corporation (dba “Pela”) limited warranty* from the Product Shipment Date (as defined below). Subject to the “Terms of Warranty” set out below, if your Lomi Product has a defect in Product material or workmanship within the applicable warranty period, Pela will arrange to have your original Product returned to us and deliver an identical or comparable replacement to you or will apply another remedy as described below.

The 1-year limited warranty can be extended an additional 2 years if you purchase LomiCare within a year of the Product Shipping Date. If you do not register your Lomi Product or LomiCare, your Lomi Product is not eligible for coverage under the limited warranty.
**Should you cancel your Lomi Membership at any time prior to submitting a warranty claim, the limited warranty will revert to a 1-year standard limited warranty based on the Product Shipment Date.

PELATM MASTER LIMITED PRODUCT WARRANTY
INTRODUCTION TO THE WARRANTY
For the purposes of this limited warranty, please note the Jurisdiction (as defined below) for which such limited warranty is applicable.
For the purposes of this Warranty (as defined below), "Jurisdiction" means:
(i) the fifty United States and the District of Columbia only, not including any other U.S. territories, commonwealths, possessions and
(ii) any province or territory of Canada ("Canada", together with the USA, collectively referred to as "North America"),
as applicable to the consumer purchasing the relevant Product.
TERMS OF WARRANTY COVERAGE
Pela provides the Warranty coverage as further described below and limited to the terms and conditions hereof:
Pela hereby provides a limited non-transferable Product Warranty for a period of 1 year (subject to extension solely as provided herein) upon product registration in the manner described herein (the “Warranty”) against defects in Product materials and workmanship. This Warranty is offered on only those Lomi Products purchased and used in North America by the consumer and is the sole and exclusive Warranty provided by Pela for any Product(s).
The Warranty is non-transferable and commences on the applicable Product Shipment Date (the “Warranty Commencement Date”) and ceases upon the 1-year anniversary of the Warranty Commencement Date (the “Standard Warranty Period”) unless extended as provided herein. Product registration within 30 days of the Warranty Commencement Date, including submission of Proof of Purchase is required for the Warranty to be in effect.
The Warranty can be extended to a maximum of 3 years from the Product Shipment Date (the “Extended Warranty Period”) upon registration of the Product as provided herein and Purchase of LomiCare. The Extended Warranty is non-transferable and commences on the Product Shipment Date (the “Extended Warranty Commencement Date”) and ceases upon the 3-year anniversary of the shipping date (the “Extended Warranty Period”). Product registration within 30 days of the Extended Warranty Commencement Date, including submission of Proof of Purchase (as defined below) and enrolment by the Purchaser in the Lomi Membership program within 90 days of the Extended Warranty Commencement Date or Purchase of LomiCare within 1 year of the Extended Warranty Commencement Date is required for the Extended Warranty to be in effect.
Proof of the valid Product purchase for the purposes of this Warranty and/or the Extended Warranty (“Proof of Purchase”) is an original or copy of the sales receipt or gift receipt for the Product, or an invoice from an authorized reseller or partner, showing the Product, payment and date of purchase. Product registration is not sufficient to meet the Proof of Purchase requirement. For the purposes of this Warranty, “Purchaser” means (i) in the case of a purchase for personal use, the original purchaser of the Product as evidenced by the original sales receipt or (ii) in the case of a purchase of the Product as a gift, the recipient of the gift as designated by the original purchaser at the time of an online purchase or as evidenced by a gift receipt in the case of an in person gift purchase through a retail outlet, as applicable.
In the event the Standard Warranty Period or the Extended Warranty Period (as applicable) for the Product has expired or if the Product does not qualify for Warranty and/or Extended Warranty service, repair, reimbursement or replacement, Purchasers may still buy replacement parts or have Products repaired by a Pela authorized Product service facility. Please contact Pela for more information.
EFFECT OF THE WARRANTY
Within the Standard Warranty Period and/or Extended Warranty Period (as applicable), Pela may, at its sole discretion:
replace the Product entirely, either with a new or refurbished Product, at no additional charge to the Purchaser (other than applicable shipping fees may apply);
repair the Product with new or refurbished parts at no charge to the Purchaser (other than applicable shipping fees);
reimburse the Purchaser the amount of the original purchase price (a "Reimbursement"); or
replace defective parts that meet the performance specifications of new parts for any applicable Product.
Only Pela or Pela approved accessories and replacement parts are authorized for use with any Product. The use of any non-Pela or non-Pela approved accessories or replacement parts with any Product voids any Warranty which may be applicable to such Product.
All exchanged or substituted parts and products replaced under this Warranty shall become the property of Pela. Repaired or replaced Products or parts provided under this Warranty will be warranted by Pela for the remaining time of the original Standard Warranty Period or Extended Warranty Period (as applicable). Any Pela approved accessories or replacement parts purchased separately by a consumer will be subject to separate warranty coverage applicable to such purchased accessories or replacement parts and are not covered under this Warranty.
In the event replacement Product parts or replacement Product units are not available for any reason at the time a valid Product Warranty claim is submitted by a Purchaser, Pela may, in its sole discretion, provide a Reimbursement of the purchase price for the Product. Any such Reimbursement to the Purchaser shall be in full satisfaction with any applicable Warranty claim and of Pela’s obligation to the Purchaser under this Warranty for such Warranty claim. This provision of a Reimbursement terminates any further warranty coverage for such applicable Product.
PRODUCT WARRANTY LIMITATIONS
Pela’s obligation to the Purchaser with regard to the Warranty for any Product is limited to the repair or replacement of any defective Product or parts (as applicable) or the Reimbursement of the purchase price of any defective Product, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Warranty.
This Warranty is only valid for Product(s) purchased and used in North America and shall not extend to any Products(s):

This Warranty excludes any defects or damages caused by (i) the placement of unapproved materials (non Lomi Approved™ materials) in the Product and/or (ii) the use of accessories, replacement parts or repair services other than those that have been expressly authorized by Pela pursuant to the terms hereof.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, no other warranties, express or implied, are made by Pela or are authorized to be made on behalf of Pela by any retailer, agent, distributor, or other party with respect to any Product to any Purchaser.
The Warranty shall be rendered null and void, and of no further force or effect, and will provide no Warranty coverage with regard to a Product for any of the following reasons, without limitation:
Products requiring maintenance or replacement due to normal wear and tear, rust, stain, corrosion, age or Products damaged due to any improper or discouraged use, mishandling, negligence, excessive wear and tear, including damages caused by maintaining, operating or using the Product in a manner not consistent with, not in accordance with, or not contemplated by the instruction manual provided by Pela with the Product, or by otherwise failing to follow operating, care, safety, or cleaning instructions contained therein;

Products for which a Purchaser has failed to register with Pela as provided herein or for which the applicable Warranty period has expired;
Products not purchased from Pela or through a Pela authorized reseller or partner (for example, purchases from non-authorized sellers online, at auction, private sale, or otherwise, such as, without limitation, eBay® and other independent e-commerce sites not authorized by Pela);
