What is covered by the Warranty:
- The Tero appliance and/or non-removable parts found to be defective, at Tero's sole discretion, will be repaired or replaced, at Tero's absolute discretion, up to one (1) year after the date of purchase as shown on the original invoice issued by Tero.

What is not covered by the warranty:
- Normal wear and tear on parts (such as blades and charcoal filters) that require regular maintenance and/or replacement to keep your Tero device working properly is not covered by the Warranty. Replacement parts are available for purchase on the website.
- Any damage caused by misuse, abuse, negligent handling, lack of maintenance (e.g., failure to use the Tero in accordance with the instructions in the User's Guide), or damage caused by mishandling during shipment.
- Any Tero device that has been altered or used for commercial purposes.
- Any defect caused by repairs not authorized by Tero.
Warranty coverage applies to the original owner and the original Tero device only and is not transferable.

Finally, Tero wishes to deliver a sustainable product that meets the expectations of its customers, so the organization reserves the right to modify the schedule in order to meet these quality criteria.
That said, Tero undertakes to keep customers informed by email (the one provided when ordering) of the status of their order.
