If you turn in your Supported Product to Upgrade after exercising your Upgrade Option you understand and agree that you will not be able to get the Supported Product back.

You may exercise your Upgrade Option when purchasing a new eligible Product, subject to availability, on the following conditions:
Unless you receive express written permission from Upgraded, you must turn in the same physical Product that you used to enroll in the Upgrade Service. Upgraded will allow substitution of Supported Products in the case of warranty replacements where the consumer receives either the same or certain, slightly different, pre-approved Product versions by Upgrade, at its sole discretion. You are responsible for promptly notifying Upgraded to obtain its prior express written permission of any substitution of your Supported Product.
You must trade in your Supported Product in good physical and operational condition, as more fully described below in Section 2 (k).
To exercise your Upgrade Option, you must comply with the above conditions and enroll in a new Upgraded Service in connection with your purchase of a new eligible Product, which includes applying for and entering into a new Consumer Loan (“New Consumer Loan”) with Bank.

Whether exercising your Upgrade Option or simply turning in your Supported Product, in order to receive the Payment value, you must exercise your decision within the window of time expressly set forth in your Upgraded Account (the “Upgrade Service Window”). It is your responsibility to check your Upgrade Account frequently for any notifications from Upgrade.

You agree that Supported Product will be preliminary graded based on visual, physical and operational conditions according to the Evaluation Criteria (as defined below), as set forth in this Section 2(k).

You agree that Supported Product will be evaluated according to Evaluation Criteria, as described above in Section 2(h). You agree that result of evaluation of the Supported Product according to Evaluation Criteria, as described above in Section 2(h), will determine the conclusive amount of Payment paid by Upgraded.

Upgraded will not be responsible or in any way obligated to cover those expenses and costs. You agree that is your sole responsibility to pay and cover any expenses arising from any repairs that need to be made to the Supported Product.
If you have selected an Apple product as your Supported Product, and if it is not in good physical and operational condition, you will need to exercise your service rights according to the protection plan.
