IF FLASHPOINT CANNOT LAWFULLY DISCLAIM IMPLIED WARRANTIES, ALL SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. FLASHPOINT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY OR CONDITION, OR UNDER ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or exclusions or limitations on the duration of implied warranties or conditions, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

FLASHPOINT OUT OF WARRANTY
Adorama can offer what is called an “Out of Warranty Replacement” . You would send back your damaged/defective unit and Adorama will send you a manufacturer-refurbished one for a discounted price. When the warehouse staff receives the damaged/defective unit, they will have Customer Service call you to place a NEW order for the replacement unit. Please note that the replacement unit will have a ninety (90) day warranty. If you want to extend the warranty beyond 90 days, you can add New Leaf’s Warranty.
The extended warranty must be added at the time Customer Service places the NEW order. Take note that the extended warranty will not cover accidental damage (only manufacturing defects).
Accidental Drops and Spills coverage cannot be added to Out of Warranty Replacement items.
