Your policy includes the cost of delivering a replacement to You. However, it does not include the cost of failed deliveries, for example, where delivery is aborted because:

  • You are not available to accept the replacement at a pre-agreed time and place, or
  • You fail to notify Us that Your Mobile Device reported Lost or Stolen has been recovered.

We reserve the right to charge You for subsequent deliveries.

If You make a claim that We think may be dishonest, We will refuse to settle it. If We settle Your claim but later discover it to be dishonest, We will take action to recover the costs of dealing with Your claim including the cost of the replacement Mobile Device.

If You receive a replacement because Your Mobile Device is considered to be beyond economic repair, the Insurer may take possession of Your Mobile Device. At Our discretion We may, on behalf of the Insurer, request to examine Your Damaged Mobile Device before a replacement is issued. If You receive a replacement device as a result of an accidental Damage claim the Damaged device must be returned to us.

As the Insurer's claim handling agents, all repairs to or replacement of Your Mobile Device will be at Our discretion. If Your Mobile Device is Damaged We will, at Our option, repair the Damage or replace Your Mobile Device on behalf of the Insurer. The Mobile Device will remain Your responsibility until We have received it. If the Mobile Device is Lost during delivery to Us, then You will still be liable for the cost of the Mobile Device. We recommend that You send the Mobile Device by secure means.

Any replacement will, wherever possible, be of the same or similar specification as Your original Mobile Device, but may be an alternative operating system, make or model. This decision will be made at Our discretion but We will always discuss the alternative device with You. The replacement will be from refurbished stock that has been tested and is fully functional.

Where only part(s) of Your Mobile Device have been Damaged, Lost or Stolen, We reserve the right to only replace the Damaged, Lost or Stolen part(s). There is no entitlement to have Your claim settled by payment of money.
