If you submit your Product to us for repairs and it has modifications, we may ship your product back without repairs, or we may repair it despite the modification. We can’t promise that we will leave your modifications intact. If you submit a modified Product to us for repairs, any damage or loss we may cause to your modifications will be your responsibility, not ours.
