Warning: Warranties are not transferable. Sales of Catalyst® products by unauthorized resellers, including any unauthorized internet resellers, will invalidate the product warranty.
Catalyst® products are warranted to be free of material or workmanship flaws under the manufacturer warranty (see below). The limited warranties below are valid only in connection with the original purchase of new products from a Catalyst® authorized retailer who has agreed to the Terms and Conditions on our website at www.b2b.catalystcase.com and the limited warranties extend from the original purchase date of the original product purchased. An “original purchaser,” for the purposes of the limited warranties, is an individual or entity who purchases the product directly from a Catalyst® authorized retailer with the intent to use the product for personal consumer use and not with the intent to resell the product.
What is not covered:
No case is indestructible and the Catalyst® product is not warranted to protect a device in all circumstances. The warranty will not cover cosmetic issues or product failure because you broke it - any defect or malfunction caused as a result of misuse, failure to follow directions, abuse, or use with improper, customized, or faulty equipment. It doesn't cover incidental damages or damage caused by trying to disassemble, repair, or alter a product yourself. The warranty does not provide service or support for any third party products that our products attach to, including, but not limited to iPhones, Apple Watch, iPads, Tablets or watches.
Unauthorized resellers – no warranty:
Product warranties are void and not applicable to Catalyst® products sold by or purchased from unauthorized resellers. Catalyst® products obtained from unauthorized resellers are obtained without warranty, “AS IS” and “with all faults.”
Any individual or entity that purchases the product from whatever source with the intent to resell the product is an unauthorized reseller (“unauthorized reseller”). The Catalyst® product limited warranty does not apply to products sold by unauthorized resellers, including without limitation, unauthorized resellers on third party websites, including, without limitation, Craigslist, eBay, Amazon, etc. Neither unauthorized resellers nor purchasers from unauthorized resellers are “original purchasers” for the purpose of this limited warranty. If a purchaser is not an “original purchaser," the purchaser takes the product “AS IS” and “with all faults.” PROOF OF PURCHASE FROM AN AUTHORIZED RETAILER WILL BE REQUIRED TO DEMONSTRATE ELIGIBILITY TO MAKE A VALID CLAIM UNDER OUR LIMITED WARRANTY.
All warranties for Catalyst® products are NON-TRANSFERABLE. Sales of Catalyst® products second-hand, or by unauthorized resellers, will void and otherwise render the product ineligible for warranty protection. For example, there are no authorized resellers on eBay and Craigslist and any sales on those websites will make the product sold ineligible for warranty protection. Our Terms and Conditions on this website do not allow resale on Amazon.com are do NOT provide authorization to sell Catalyst® products online. Any sales on Amazon are unauthorized and will void the warranty and constitute a breach of our Terms and Conditions agreement.
Manufacturer Warranty to Consumer:
Rogue Lemmings, Inc. dba Catalyst is the sole authorized importer and distributor of Catalyst products in the United States, purchasing products from the manufacturer, Labworks International Design Limited (“Labworks”).

This Catalyst® Warranty does not apply to damage caused by negligent use, willful abuse, intentional acts to damage the product, mishandling or improper usage (including use contrary to the product’s intended use), alteration, unauthorized repair or modification, any physical damage to the product, cosmetic damage or defects caused by normal wear and tear or otherwise due to the normal aging of the product, abnormal mechanical or environmental conditions (including prolonged exposure to caustic or corrosive chemicals, solvents, oils or fuels), acts of nature, misrepresentation or fraudulent claims, failure to follow instructions, any damage caused by use with third party products (including screen protectors, cleaning solutions, charge cables or headphones), products purchased from an unauthorized reseller, or if inspection or testing show that an alleged defect does not exist.

This Catalyst® Warranty only applies to end-users who purchased the product directly from Rogue Lemmings, Inc. dba Catalyst or its authorized retailers and does not apply to transferees, products purchased from non-authorized dealers, online auction websites or anyone else who stands to profit from this Catalyst® Warranty without prior written authorization.
