Talsam Limited Warranty
BY USING YOUR TALSAM CHARM OR ANY OF ITS RELATED ACCESSORIES (THE “PRODUCT”), YOU ARE AGREEING TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THE CHIPP’D LTD. (“CHIPP’D”) EXCLUSIVE LIMITED WARRANTY (“WARRANTY”) AS SET OUT BELOW.
DO NOT USE YOUR PRODUCT UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THE TERMS OF THE WARRANTY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE TERMS OF THE WARRANTY, DO NOT USE THE PRODUCT AND RETURN IT WITHIN THE RETURNS PERIOD STATED IN OUR RETURN POLICY, WHICH CAN BE FOUND ON OUR WEBSITE AT TALSAM.COM/PAGES/RETURNS.
What is Covered?
Chipp’d Ltd. warrants to the original purchaser that your Product will be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for one (1) year from the date of original purchase, except that if you reside in the European Economic Area (EEA) and you purchased your Talsam product in the EEA, the warranty period is two (2) years from the date of purchase (the “Warranty Period”).
The Warranty Period is not extended if we repair or replace the Product. Normal use is defined as being in accordance with Chipp’d’s published guidelines, which include but are not limited to information contained in technical specifications, user manuals, or marketing and service communications. The Warranty does not extend to any subsequent owner or transferee of the Product. We may change the availability of this limited warranty at our discretion, but any changes will not be retroactive.
Attention: Safety Instructions
Chipp’d products contain electrical equipment that could cause injury if not handled properly. Please note that Chipp’d is not responsible for damage arising from failure to follow instructions relating to the Product’s use.
Proper handling includes, but is not limited to the following:
- Use only accessories approved for use with the Product by Chipp’d. Using unapproved or incompatible batteries or other accessories may cause fire or other hazards. The use of any other types of accessories may void the warranty, may violate local regulations and laws, and may be dangerous.
- Due to the delicate nature of the crystals and semi-precious stones used in the makeup of the Product, treat your Product with extra care as the Warranty will not cover breakage in case of fall, misuse, or regular wear and tear.

Exclusions and Limitations
Chipp’d does not warrant that the operation of the Product will be uninterrupted or error-free. This Warranty does not cover software embedded in any Product and related services provided by Chipp’d. See the Talsam Terms of Service, which can be found at talsam.com/pages/terms for details about your rights with respect to use of the software and related services.
This Warranty is valid only in jurisdictions where the Products are sold by Chipp’d itself or through an authorized reseller or agent, and is valid to the extent permitted by the applicable laws of such jurisdictions. Any Product returned to Chipp’d without a valid Warranty claim or without a RMA may be rejected, returned at sender’s cost, or kept for 30 days for pick-up and then disposed of at Chipp’d’s discretion.
Without limiting the foregoing, this Warranty does not apply to any (a) Chipp’d products and services other than the Products, (b) third party products, even if included or sold with a Product, including, without limitation, any counterfeit products, (c) products that are, or Chipp’d reasonably believes to be, stolen, (d) consumables (such as batteries), or (e) software, even if packaged or sold with the Product or embedded in the Product.
This Warranty does not apply to a Product or part of a Product that has been serviced, altered, refurbished, or modified by anyone other than Chipp’d, nor does it apply (a) to consumable parts, such as batteries or protective coatings that are designed to diminish over time or other parts of the product with limited resistance, unless failure has occurred due to a defect in materials or workmanship; (b) to cosmetic damage, including but not limited to scratches and dents; (c) to damage caused by use with a third party component.
In addition, this Warranty does not apply to damage or defects caused by (a) use with non-Talsam products; (b) accident, flood, fire, earthquake or other external causes; (c) abuse, misuse, mishandling or improper, rough or careless treatment; (d) normal wear and tear or aging of the Product or otherwise due to the normal aging; or (e) operating the Product (i) outside the permitted or intended uses described by Chipp’d, (ii) not in accordance with instructions provided by Chipp’d, or (iii) with improper voltage or power supply.

Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, CHIPP’D EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, WHETHER STATUTORY OR IMPLIED, ARISING FROM COURSE OF CONDUCT OR OTHERWISE, REGARDING THE PRODUCT, EXCEPT THAT ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE ONE-YEAR PERIOD OF THE EXPRESS WARRANTY ABOVE.
Some States do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, CHIPP’D AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES AND AFFILIATES (COLLECTIVELY, “CHIPP’D PARTIES”) SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY—WHETHER CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, NEGLIGENCE, BREACH OR FAILURE OF ANY WARRANTY, OR OTHERWISE—FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES THAT MAY BE INCURRED BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THE PRODUCT, INCLUDING ANY LOSS OF DATA, WHETHER OR NOT A CHIPP’D PARTY OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF OR SHOULD HAVE BEEN AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH LOSSES ARISING. YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE CHIPP’D PARTIES’ TOTAL LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THE PRODUCT OR THIS LIMITED WARRANTY WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU ACTUALLY PAID CHIPP’D FOR THE PRODUCT.
Some States do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
Governing Law; Specific Legal Rights
This Limited Warranty shall be governed by the laws of the State New York regardless of whether choice-of-law rules point to the law of another jurisdiction. This Limited Warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary by state to state.
