Default Warranty void info

Hi, as this is my first sony phone so I am not familiar with sony.. So I have a question in my mind.. If I ask for bootloader unlock code from sony by filling up imei in the official sony website, will they void my warranty? Or they will only check if I have really unlocked it or not?!

Please note that you may void the warranty of your device and/or any warranty from your operator if you unlock the boot loader.
'Signing' up for bootloader unlock code does not mean that you really will/want/have (to) unlock(ed) the bootloader.

Legally it will depend on your countrys laws if they can void your warranty on those grounds or not. But generally, the service center will check if the phone has been unlocked or not, and base your warranty status on that. I had some issues recently with my Z1C, it wasn't waterproof and I had installed CyanogenMod. It wasn't bootable when I sent it, but when it arrived it booted into CyanogenMod and they almost denied me service on those grounds so I called them up and asked them to test the waterproofness which they did and I am now waiting on a new phone.
