Warranty Details via Dell product support page - Dell digital delivery.
Why have my Warranty Details changed after I have contacted support. I have recently contacted Dell support regarding a faulty hard drive (January 27/2016). I was sent to out of warranty support because my warranty was out of date 2.5 weeks (January 10/2016). One day later I log onto Dells Product Support page and have noticed under Warranty details for your Inspiron 5547. The warranty date had been changed to July 13/2015 (one year since it was shipped to Best Buy) and that Dell Digital Delivery was no longer there (previously dated to 2022). Now I get that my laptop is out of warranty either way but, Do I not have access to the software that was purchased with the computer for the life of the product?

Dell Digital Delivery Warranty and Licensing
The entitlement for the license (and download) is kept available for 8 years or 10 downloads, and is not related to the hardware warranty.
In the case of a system exchange, the entitlement for Dell Digital Delivery (DDD) is transferred to the new service tag.
When the customer downloads an application, a copy of the installer is kept on their hard drive. So, a reinstall only requires another download if the HDD is replaced, wiped, etc. A simple uninstall/reinstall/repair typically won't require a download.
