If the warranty applies, you will be notified as to whether the product will be repaired, replaced (with the original or comparable product), or refunded.

Normal wear and tear and the natural breakdown of materials are also excluded.

The warranty is void if the Totem care instructions are not followed.

If the product fails due to a manufacturing defect, we will repair the product at our own discretion.

Products will be replaced if they fall within the guarantee period and they cannot be repaired.

This is a ‘carry in guarantee’.  You are responsible for all costs of getting the defective product to us.
