LIMITED WARRANTY - MATTRESS PROTECTORS
For a Gotcha Covered mattress protector/encasement (the “Product”) purchased in the USA and Canada, Sweet Dreams Inc. dba Gotcha Covered (“Gotcha Covered”) warrants to the original end purchaser (“Purchaser”) of the Gotcha Covered mattress protector/encasement (the “Product”) that if the laminate or fabric of the Produce fails as the result of a defect in manufacturing in the course of normal usage during the Warranty Period (as defined below), Gotcha Covered will replace the Product, provided the Purchaser complies with the conditions identified below. The “Warranty Period” shall mean the period commencing upon date of purchase of the Product by the Purchaser and continuing in the case of sales for HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY (i.e., non-commercial use) for a period of FIVE years.
Please retain this warranty and original proof of purchase for at least FIVE years from your purchase date.
In addition, in the event that the Product and a NEW mattress are purchased by an individual consumer for HOUSEHOLD use at the same time from the same authorized retailer, Gotcha Covered also warrants to the Purchaser that if the Product fails to protect (due to manufacturing defects in the Product) the mattress sleeping surface against staining while properly covered by the Product during shorter of the Warranty Period (defined above) or the warranty period offered on the mattress by the mattress manufacturer, then Gotcha Covered will, in its sole discretion, either a) have the mattress professionally cleaned (by a 3rd party), b) reimburse the original purchaser a 60 month pro-rated amount for the purchase price of the mattress, or c) replace the mattress with one of comparable quality and value, in each case provided the Purchaser complies with the conditions identified below: The warranty in this paragraph shall terminate in the event that Gotcha Covered satisfies its warranty obligations under this paragraph with respect to a claim; no subsequent claims will be covered for either the replacement Product or mattress in question. Installing (or reinstalling after laundering) an obviously damaged Product voids the warranty in this paragraph. For the avoidance of doubt, the warranty in this paragraph does not apply to mattresses used commercially, the sides of the mattress or to ensembles (linens and mattress pads or toppers) and mattress bases (box springs or foundations), or mattresses not fitted with the Product. The warranty in this paragraph also does not no apply to damage caused by (i) normal wear and tear, (ii) stains caused by inks, nail polish, cosmetics, bleach, grease, alcohol, dyes, chemical hair treatments, self-tanning related chemicals, or solvents, (iii) stains or other damage occurred during moves between residences, or while in storage, (iv) smoke, flood, or other Acts of God, (v) stains or damage caused by, or the result of mold or mildew, (vi) theft, vandalism or other crimes, or any loss that is covered by an insurance policy, (vii) stains or odors of unknown origins, or (viii) pet damage.
