The extent of the warranty given for each product is described alongside each product.
The warranty lasts for the number of years stated against each product, starting from the date of purchase.
Customers are required to return the defective product to the place of purchase at their expense for repair. However in certain circumstances Empire may agree to conduct repairs at the customer premises. Empire will examine the product and decide if it is covered under this warranty. Empire will then, at its choice, either repair the defective product or replace it with the same or a comparable product.
In these cases, Empire will be responsible for the costs of repairs, spare parts, labour and travel for repair staff that Empire incurs, provided that the product is accessible for repair without Empire incurring additional expenditure to gain access. This will not apply in cases where repair work has not been authorised by Empire. Any defective parts removed in the course of repair works will become the property of Empire. If the item is no longer sold by Empire, Empire will provide an appropriate replacement. Empire will decide at its discretion, what will constitute an appropriate replacement.

You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure. The benefits under our guarantees are in addition to other rights and remedies under law in relation to goods.
