WARRANTY



JC COMPUTERS warranty obligations for this hardware product are limited to the terms set forth herein.

JC COMPUTERS, as defined in the table below, warrants this JC COMPUTERS-branded hardware product against defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of ONE (1) YEAR from the date of retail purchase by the original end-user purchaser (“Warranty Period”).

If a hardware defect arises and a valid claim is received within the Warranty Period, at its option and to the extent permitted by law, JC COMPUTERS will either:

(1) repair the hardware defect at no charge, using new or refurbished parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability,

(2) exchange the product with a product that is new or refurbished that is equivalent to new in performance and reliability and is at least functionally equivalent to the original product, or

(3) provide a credit for the price of the product.

JC COMPUTERS may request that you replace defective parts with user-installable new or refurbished parts that JC COMPUTERS provides in fulfillment of its warranty obligation. A replacement product or part, including a user-installable part that has been installed in accordance with instructions provided by JC COMPUTERS, assumes the remaining warranty of the original product or ninety (90) days from the date of replacement or repair, whichever provides longer coverage for you.

When a product or part is exchanged, any replacement item becomes your property and the replaced item becomes JC COMPUTERS’s property.

Parts provided by JC COMPUTERS in fulfillment of its warranty obligation must be used in products for which warranty service is claimed. When a refund is given, the product for which the refund is provided must be returned to JC COMPUTERS and becomes JC COMPUTERS’s property.


EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS



TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THIS WARRANTY AND THE REMEDIES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, REMEDIES AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER ORAL, WRITTEN, STATUTORY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.

AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, JC COMPUTERS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL STATUTORY OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND WARRANTIES AGAINST HIDDEN OR LATENT DEFECTS.

IF JC COMPUTERS CANNOT LAWFULLY DISCLAIM STATUTORY OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES THEN TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ALL SUCH WARRANTIES SHALL BE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THE EXPRESS WARRANTY AND TO THE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT SERVICE AS DETERMINED BY JC COMPUTERS IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION.

SOME STATES (COUNTRIES AND PROVINCES) DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION MAY LAST, SO THE LIMITATIONS DESCRIBED ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

No JC COMPUTERS reseller, agent, or employee is authorized to make any modification, extension, or addition to this warranty. If any term is held to be illegal or unenforceable, the legality or enforceability of the remaining terms shall not be affected or impaired.

This Limited Warranty applies only to hardware products manufactured by or for JC COMPUTERS that can be identified by the “JC COMPUTERS” trademark, trade name, or logo affixed to them. The Limited Warranty does not apply to any non-JC COMPUTERS hardware products or any software, even if packaged or sold with JC COMPUTERS hardware.

Manufacturers, suppliers, or publishers, other than JC COMPUTERS, may provide their own warranties to the end user purchaser, but JC COMPUTERS, in so far as permitted by law, provides their products “as is”.

Software distributed by JC COMPUTERS with or without the JC COMPUTERS brand name (including, but not limited to system software) is not covered under this Limited Warranty.

Refer to the licensing agreement accompanying the software for details of your rights with respect to its use.

JC COMPUTERS does not warrant that the operation of the product will be uninterrupted or error-free.

JC COMPUTERS is not responsible for damage arising from failure to follow instructions relating to the product’s use.

This warranty does not apply: (a) to consumable parts, such as batteries, unless damage has occurred due to a defect in materials or workmanship; (b) to cosmetic damage, including but not limited to scratches, dents and broken plastic on ports; (c) to damage caused by use with non-JC COMPUTERS products; (d) to damage caused by accident, abuse, misuse, liquid contact, fire, earthquake or other external causes; (e) to damage caused by operating the product outside the permitted or intended uses described by JC COMPUTERS; (f) to damage caused by service (including upgrades and expansions) performed by anyone who is not a representative of JC COMPUTERS or an JC COMPUTERS Authorized Service Provider (“JASP”); (g) to a product or part that has been modified to alter functionality or capability without the written permission of JC COMPUTERS; (h) to defects caused by normal wear and tear or otherwise due to the normal aging of the product or (i) if any JC COMPUTERS serial number has been removed or defaced.

EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS WARRANTY AND TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, JC COMPUTERS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY OR CONDITION, OR UNDER ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF USE; LOSS OF REVENUE; LOSS OF ACTUAL OR ANTICIPATED PROFITS (INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS ON CONTRACTS); LOSS OF THE USE OF MONEY; LOSS OF ANTICIPATED SAVINGS; LOSS OF BUSINESS; LOSS OF
OPPORTUNITY; LOSS OF GOODWILL; LOSS OF REPUTATION; LOSS OF, DAMAGE TO, COMPROMISE OR CORRUPTION OF DATA; OR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS OR DAMAGE HOWSOEVER CAUSED INCLUDING THE REPLACEMENT OF EQUIPMENT AND PROPERTY, ANY COSTS OF RECOVERING, PROGRAMMING, OR REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA STORED OR USED WITH JC COMPUTERS PRODUCTS AND ANY FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF DATA STORED ON THE PRODUCT.

THE FOREGOING LIMITATION SHALL NOT APPLY TO DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS, OR ANY STATUTORY LIABILITY FOR INTENTIONAL AND GROSS NEGLIGENT ACTS AND/OR OMISSIONS.

SOME STATES (COUNTRIES AND PROVINCES) DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.


OBTAINING WARRANTY SERVICE


JC COMPUTERS will provide warranty service (i) at a JC COMPUTERS Retail, where service is performed at the location, or the JC COMPUTERS Retail may send the product to a JC COMPUTERS repair service location for service, (ii) by sending you prepaid way bills (and if you no longer have the original packaging, JC COMPUTERS may send you packaging material) to enable you to ship the product to JC COMPUTERS’s repair service location for service, or (iii) by sending you customer installable new or refurbished replacement product or parts to enable you to service or exchange your own product (“DIY Service”).

Upon receipt of the replacement product or part, the original product or part becomes the property of JC COMPUTERS and you agree to follow instructions, including, if required, arranging the return of original product or part to JC COMPUTERS in a timely manner.

When providing DIY Service requiring the return of the original product or part, JC COMPUTERS may require a credit card authorization as security for the retail price of the replacement product or part and applicable shipping costs.

If you follow instructions, JC COMPUTERS will cancel the credit card authorization, so you will not be charged for the product or part and shipping costs.

If you fail to return the replaced product or part as instructed or the replaced product or part is not eligible for warranty service, JC COMPUTERS will charge the credit card for the authorized amount.

If the product is still not functioning properly after making use of these resources, please contact the JC COMPUTERS representatives or, if applicable, an JC COMPUTERS owned retail store (“JC COMPUTERS Retail”) using the information provided below.

When contacting JC COMPUTERS via telephone, other charges may apply depending on your location.

When calling, an JC COMPUTERS representative or JASP will help determine whether your product requires service and, if it does, will inform you how JC COMPUTERS will provide it.

You must assist in diagnosing issues with your product and follow JC COMPUTERS’s warranty processes.

Service options, parts availability and response times may vary according to the country in which service is requested. Service options are subject to change at any time. You may be responsible for shipping and handling charges if the product cannot be serviced in the country in which service is requested.

If you seek service in a country that is not the country of purchase, you will comply with all applicable import and export laws and regulations and be responsible for all custom duties, V.A.T. and other associated taxes and charges.

For international service, JC COMPUTERS may repair or exchange defective products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards.

In accordance with applicable law, JC COMPUTERS may require that you furnish proof of purchase details and/or comply with registration requirements before receiving warranty service.
