The warranty chain
Manufacturers, importers, distributors and outlets work together in a global warranty chain. On the warranty card, enclosed in the product packaging, you can find the terms and conditions. The information on this pages and this website is only for informational purposes. No rights can be claimed.
When you purchase a product in a (physical) shop, that shop offers you first technical aid without any cost. It's service. It's the way physical shops do business. After all, they are your business partner.
In case your product needs the attention of a specialized technician, such as one of ours, then the shop sends in the product to that brand's assigned service station for that region in the world. For instance: a shop sends a Tokina lens to us. If the warranty can be ascertained (serial number check, warranty card, original purchase receipt), your product will be repaired or replaced without cost and sent back.
Since the (physical) shop takes care of handling and shipment and we service the product free of charge, a warranty request within the region where you purchased your product will cost you nothing at all. That's service.
Did you buy your product in another shop than the region you are claiming warranty in?
In that case the shop owner where you bring your product for repair is entitled to charge you for some cost (handling and shipment).
If your warranty claim can be ascertained (serial number check, warranty card, original purchase receipt) we will not charge you any cost.
Did you buy your product in another country or region than the region you are claiming warranty in?
In such a case you are entitled to the manufacturers warranty of our brands, but you need to be aware that some cost for handling and shipment are due. Both the shop where you bring your product for service and the assigned (regional) service station can charge for cost of handling, insurance and transport.
All cost for repair of replacement of the product itself are covered by the warranty, provided that the original purchase receipt and the warranty card accompany your product.
Just a remark concerning international internet shops
Most internet shops offer their products without boundaries. Especially in Europa it's very easy to buy a product from an internet shop in a neighboring country. Did you buy your product at such a webshop and not at a physical shop within the country, then please be advised that extra cost may be charged, even if your warranty claim can be ascertained.
Because, if your product's serial number does not match the range of serial numbers that TSE Imaging has imported, then you are entitled for a full warranty in the country of purchase only. The manufacturers global warranty applies undiminished, but cost for handling, security and transport are not included.
