This Plan applies exclusively to the item(s) indicated on the original bill of sale that is specified to be warrantable and covered under this Plan, and sold in Canada. This is NOT a valid Plan unless and until a numbered Plan Number page is attached, indicating the Plan number, covered product, and Plan owner information.
Throughout this Plan, the words “we”, “us” and “our” (whether or not capitalized) refer to the selling retailer.
We agree with the purchaser of the product(s) and this Plan (OWNER), to cover manufacturer’s defects in materials and workmanship that are the result of normal usage for a period specified on your sales receipt and/or contract, subject to a maximum combined coverage period of five (5) years from the original date of purchase for all eligible products covered. The Plan covers eligible products purchased, including its accessories, as new and manufactured for use in Canada, which at the time of purchase included a Manufacturer’s original warranty valid in Canada providing minimum coverage of ninety (90) days for parts and/or labour. The Plan begins the day you receive your product and is between us and the OWNER. Please note the NCIX 30 day limited warranty overrides the extended coverage for the first 30 days.
This Plan pays for parts and labour for functional parts; functional parts are those that are critical to the performance of the product’s essential function; non functional parts are those that are not critical including but not limited to knobs, handles or cosmetic parts. We will repair or replace the unit or any parts thereof, as required, subject to these terms and conditions.
We are not obligated to renew your Plan, however, if renewal coverage is offered, the price quoted will reflect current service costs and the age of the product. Should you have purchased an exchange plan as indicated on your receipt we will direct you to the location to exchange the Covered Product. You may be required to ship the Covered Product to a designated location before being able to receive your replacement.
