How you can make use of the 30 years warranty by Jackalope

Before you send in the bow, we would ask you to inform us about the return. You can either do that via our ticket-system, per email (support@bogensportwelt.de) or via our hotline (+49 3971 241960). Of course we will also provide you with a returns label that we will send you per email. Thereby, the return is free for you.

For a trouble-free and quick execution it is essential to put a copy of the original invoice or the completed return form, we have provided you with, into the parcel you are sending back.

That already is it for your part, now it is our turn.

After we have received the return, we will control your Jackalope bow very carefully. In case it is possible, we will repair your bow and make it fully functional again. You will not be charged for this.

Should this be impossible, we will inform you accordingly. In this case you will receive a new bow. In case the respective model is not available anymore, we will send you an equivalent- or higher-quality bow. The same goes for this case: You will not be charged.

The following bows, risers and limbs are excluded from the warranty

  • all ILF-limbs by Jackalope

Warranty conditions - BSW additional warranty for bows

§ 1 General

  1. The additional warranty of BogenSportWelt is a dependent warranty and can only be concluded in connection with a purchase contract for a bow, in which the additional warranty can be selected in the online shop. The guarantor is BSW Handels GmbH in 17389 Anklam, Germany. (hereinafter referred to as guarantor).

  2. The person taking advantage of the warranty can only be a natural person, who concludes a legal transaction for purposes, which can be added predominantly neither their commercial nor their independent vocational activity (consumer). 

  3.          Only the first-time buyer of the bow purchased from the guarantor can be the sole holder of the warranty. The additional warranty is not transferable.

  4. Claims arising from the additional warranty can only be asserted for bows purchased and located in the Federal Republic of Germany. Benefits from the additional warranty can only be claimed in Germany.

  5. For the assertion of warranty claims only these warranty conditions apply. Any agreements to the contrary shall only apply with the express written consent of the guarantor.

§ 2 Legal liability for material defects

  1. Claims arising from the statutory liability for material defects shall apply in addition to the additional warranty and shall not be affected by this.

  2. Services rendered within the scope of the additional warranty do not constitute an acknowledgement of claims within the scope of the statutory warranty.

§ 3 Beginning and end of the additional warranty

  1. The warranty period begins with the delivery of the sheet and payment of the warranty price.

  2.  The warranty period is four years.

  3. The warranty period ends prematurely if the guarantor takes back the bow according to § 5 (2).

§ 4 Content of the additional warranty

  1. The guarantor guarantees the purchased bow against breakage or delamination (case of warranty).

  2. The additional warranty expressly does not cover the purchased bow:

    1. Attachments

    2. Damage caused by improper handling or improper use of the bow, e.g. due to a dry fire and incorrect settings on the bow.

    3. Damage caused by water, fire, force majeure, improper storage, inadequate care or other reasons beyond the control of the warranty e.g. twisted limbs.

  3. Regular maintenance and repair or the replacement of parts due to normal wear and tear, especially with typical wearing parts such as strings, limbs or nocking points, are also not covered by the warranty.

§ 5 Warranty services

  1. In the event of a warranty claim, the defective bow or component will be repaired free of charge by the guarantor.

  2. If the repair of the bow or its components is actually impossible or uneconomical, it is at the discretion of the guarantor to make an exchange bow available to the policyholder instead of repairing the bow or its components. The replacement is carried out by a new bow of the same type, quality and equipment. As a replacement bow, a technically at least equivalent bow of other series or manufacturers can also be handed over. Alternatively, it is at the discretion of the guarantor to fulfil his obligation under the additional guarantee by repaying 100% of the sales price. Repayment will be made step by step against the return of the defective bow.

  3. The additional warranty does not include any liability for consequential damages.

  2. When registering warranty claims, the policyholder must present the original proof of purchase.

  3. The repair is carried out at the guarantor's place of business, if necessary, at the place of the manufacturer of the bow. The warranty holder must return the bow to the service department of the guarantor. The return is free of charge for the warrantee if the return possibilities provided in the return portal in the online shop of the guarantor are used. Any other return must be borne by the warrantee and is not refundable.

  4. If the defect to be repaired is not a warranty case and if the policyholder could have recognised this, he shall bear all costs incurred by the inspection, in particular, shipping costs incurred.

§ 7 Right of revocation

The additional warranty is part of the purchase contract of the purchased bow. If there is a right of revocation with regard to the purchase contract on which the additional warranty is based and if the policyholder exercises this right of revocation, the additional warranty will also lapse without requiring any further explanation.

§ 8 Data protection

The warranter points out to the warrantee that the personal data collected in the course of processing a warranty claim will only be collected, processed and used in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) for the purpose of processing the obligations arising from the additional warranty. For the aforementioned purposes, personal data may be transmitted and processed by commissioned and carefully selected partners in accordance with § 11 BDSG within the framework of order data processing. After the storage purpose has been achieved, personal data will be deleted in accordance with data protection regulations.

§ 9 Partial invalidity

Should individual provisions of these terms and conditions be invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. This shall not apply if adherence to the contract would represent an unreasonable hardship for one of the parties.
