- Within the Hardware Warranty Period, and
- Within thirty (30) days of discovery of the non-conformity;
- Obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (“RMA”) number from the authorized Dealer; and
- Securely pack and ship the defective Company Product to the authorized Dealer that provided the RMA (with Customer assuming all costs and risks associated with transportation)
- Within thirty (30) days from the date the RMA was issued (RMA numbers may be cancelled if the Company Product is not received by the authorized Dealer within the thirty (30) day period), and
- With the RMA number clearly marked on the outside of each box being returned.
Any shipment that does not meet all of the Valid Claim requirements may be refused by the Company. The Company is not responsible for any refused shipments or any damage caused due to shipping, whether or not it was a Valid Claim. Customer shall be responsible for return shipment charges for the Company Product returned where Company determines there is no defect with the Company Product, or that Company Product is not eligible for warranty service under this Limited Warranty.

- Exchange the applicable Company Product with a product that is new or which has been manufactured from new or serviceable used parts and is at least functionally equivalent to the Company Product, or;

When a product or part is exchanged, any replacement item becomes Customer’s property, and the replaced item becomes the Company’s property. When a refund is given, the Company Product for which the refund is provided must be returned to the Company, and it becomes the Company’s property.
Before Customer delivers the Company Product for warranty service, it is Customer’s responsibility to keep a separate backup copy of the contents and disable security passwords (if any). THE CONTENTS OF CUSTOMER’S PRODUCT MAY BE DELETED AND THE STORAGE MEDIA REFORMATTED IN THE COURSE OF WARRANTY SERVICE. The Company Product will be returned to Customer configured as originally purchased, subject to applicable updates. Recovery and reinstallation of software programs and user data are not covered under this Limited Warranty.
