All “Factory Sealed”, “New/Open box” products sold at PLC Exchange come with a free one year warranty. All warranties either express or implied are provided by PLC Exchange directly and not through any brand manufacturer or distributor. The warranty period starts the day the purchased product is confirmed delivered by carrier (USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc.) or (3) business days after the original order date if no delivery confirmation is recorded or made available. The “warranty period” is defined as 365 calendar days thereafter the respective case above. Warranty claims cannot be made without valid proof of purchase via a copy of the original order receipt via email or paper copy shipped with original product delivery.
International purchase warranties are evaluated on a case by case basis and we make no explicit guarantee we will be able to arrange or assist with an INTERNATIONAL warranty claim. We will work in the best interest of our customers and clients but do not guarantee any warranty return or replacement for INTERNATIONAL purchases.
Warranty claims will not be processed until the warranted item is returned to PLC Exchange for a full product evaluation. If the product is found to be defective due to any other reason besides manufacturer defect your warranty claim can be denied.

Warranty does not cover accidental or intentional damage due to storage, use, transport, or any other medium that would cause accidental or intentional damage.
