ShieldX2 Terms and Conditions
1. The ShieldX2 Protection Promise
We at ShieldX2 consider our case to be the gold standard for smartphone protection. We stand behind our ShieldX2 case with a comprehensive one-year protection promise - YOU BREAK IT. WE REPLACE IT. We call this the ShieldX2 Protection Promise. YOU MUST KEEP THE SHIELDX2 CASE ON YOUR PHONE AT ALL TIMES for our PROTECTION PROMISE to be VALID.
You bought a ShieldX2 case to protect your phone – or someone else bought one for you. Either way, the ShieldX2 Protection Promise is intended to mean that if your ShieldX2 case does not do what it was bought to do and your phone is damaged in one of the ways listed in paragraph 2.3(a) below, we will replace your damaged phone up to a maximum two (2) replacement per year.
1.1 Replacement of Your Phone
If we replace your damaged phone, we shall send you a similar refurbished phone of the same brand, and model of your previous one. Your replacement phone will be shipped out within 48 hours, if approved, and if request made before 2:00 pm eastern Standard time Monday thru Friday. We shall try to provide a replacement of the same color as your broken phone, when possible. If we cannot, we will call you and give you some options. You must ensure that you own the phone outright and not on a leasing program with your carrier. If provided a replacement phone, there is the chance that the carrier will not take back the phone in an exchange program.
2.1 The Small Print – Terms and Conditions
We at ShieldX2 are proud of our product and of our Protection Promise. We are sure that you will understand that the ShieldX2 Protection Promise (which is not insurance) is so great that we have to include some detailed terms and conditions to make sure that no-one tries to take unfair advantage of it. This Small Print is not intended to reduce our commitment to the principle of the ShieldX2 Protection Promise – YOU BREAK IT, WE REPLACE IT. What we are trying to do in these detailed Terms and Conditions is to clearly explain what the Protection Promise includes (and what is not included) and to make sure that our commitment to the protection of your phone is matched by you dealing fairly with us. Just to be clear when we refer to ShieldX2 in these Terms and Conditions we intend to include both our US company ShieldX2, LLC and our US company ShieldX2 Limited.
ShieldX2 offers the ShieldX2 Protection Promise on phones fitted with ShieldX2 cases in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. By completing a ShieldX2 Registration Form (see paragraph 2.4(a) below) you agree that you will not make any claim against any entity other than ShieldX2, LLC or ShieldX2 Limited for damage to your registered phone that is within the scope of the ShieldX2 Protection Promise. In particular, you agree not to make any claim against any retail or distribution partner of ours. Just to be perfectly clear, your agreement not to make any claim against any entity other than ShieldX2, LLC or ShieldX2 Limited for damage to your registered phone that is within the scope of the ShieldX2 Protection Promise will continue to apply to you if we apply to you the Blacklist provisions of paragraph 2.6 below.
2.2 Your Statutory Rights
The ShieldX2 Protection Promise does not affect your statutory rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (or any similar or equivalent laws in the US or any other EEA jurisdiction) which requires that when an item is purchased it must be of satisfactory quality, as described, fit for purpose and last a reasonable length of time. It is our intention that the ShieldX2 Protection Promise should add to your statutory rights by providing that we will replace your registered phone if it is damaged up to twice per year of protection under the ShieldX2 Protection Promise. And of course, if your ShieldX2 case is defective or is damaged you will have separate product protection – further details here https://shieldx2.com/requestprocess

If we cannot meet that target date, we shall continue to do our best to replace your phone as soon as we can, and we shall keep you informed of our progress by email.

The ShieldX2 Protection Promise is a comprehensive product protection promise. So, we have to put in place measures to protect ourselves if you do not deal fairly with us. If we conclude that you have made a Request a Replacement for a Previously Damaged Phone (that is to say the damage to your phone happened without the ShieldX2 case attached to it) or where the damage was not the result of an accident to your phone but was caused deliberately, not only will the ShieldX2 Protection Promise not apply to that phone but we shall also blacklist you to prohibit future registration of any other phone by you under the ShieldX2 Protection Promise.

We shall not do take that action unless we reasonably believe that you have attempted to make a Request a Replacement under the ShieldX2 Protection Promise of a Previously Damaged Phone or a deliberately damaged phone or have in some other way behaved dishonestly or tried to falsely benefit from the ShieldX2 Protection Promise.
In order to be eligible for the ShieldX2 Protection Promise you must be at least 18 years old and a resident of the United States, UK, or a country that is a member of the European Union.
