Sofasco Limited One Year Warranty
Sofasco's warranty obligations are limited to the terms set forth below:
Sofasco, as defined below, warrants this Sofasco-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, Sofasco will either (1) repair the hardware defect at no charge, using new or refurbished replacement parts, or (2) exchange the 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 original product, or (3) refund the purchase price of the product. Sofasco may request that you replace defective parts with new or refurbished user-installable parts that Sofasco 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 Sofasco, 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 Sofasco's property. Parts provided by Sofasco 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 Sofasco and becomes Sofasco's property.
EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS
This Limited Warranty applies only to hardware products manufactured by or for Sofasco that can be identified by the "Sofasco" trademark, trade name, or logo affixed to them. The Limited Warranty does not apply to any non-Sofasco hardware products. Manufacturers or suppliers, other than Sofasco, may provide their own warranties to the end user purchaser, but Sofasco, in so far as permitted by law, provides their products "as is". Sofasco does not warrant that the operation of the product will be uninterrupted or error-free. Sofasco is not responsible for damage arising from failure to follow instructions relating to the product's use.
This warranty does not apply: (a) to damage caused by use with non-Sofasco products; (b) to damage caused by accident, abuse, misuse, flood, fire, earthquake or other external causes; (c) to damage caused by operating the product outside the permitted or intended uses described by Sofasco; (d) to damage caused by service performed by anyone who is not a representative of Sofasco or a Sofasco Authorized Service Provider; (e) to a product or part that has been modified to significantly alter functionality or capability without the written permission of Sofasco; or (f) if any Sofasco serial number has been removed or defaced.
To the extent permitted by law, this warranty and remedies set forth above are exclusive and in lieu of all other warranties, remedies and conditions, whether oral or written, statutory, express or implied. As permitted by applicable law, Sofasco specifically disclaims any and all statutory or implied warranties, including, without limitation, warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and warranties against hidden or latent defects. If Sofasco 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 this express warranty and to repair or replacement service as determined by Sofasco in its sole discretion. No Sofasco reseller, agent, or employee is authorized to make any modification, extension, or addition to this warranty.
Except as provided in this warranty and to the extent permitted by law, Sofasco 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 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 Sofasco 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.
Consumer Protection Laws
for consumers who are covered by consumer protection laws or regulations in their country of purchase or, if different, their country of residence, the benefits conferred by this warranty are in addition to all rights and remedies conveyed by such consumer protection laws and regulations. Some countries, states and provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or exclusions or limitations on the duration of implied warranties or conditions, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary by country, state or province. This limited warranty is governed by and construed under the laws of the country in which the product purchase took place. Sofasco, the warrantor under this limited warranty, is identified at the end of this document according to the country or region in which the product purchase took place.
Obtaining Warranty Service
If the product is not functioning properly, please contact the Sofasco representatives or, if applicable, a Sofasco Authorized Service Provider. A Sofasco representative or Sofasco Authorized Service Provider will help determine whether your product requires service and, if it does, will inform you how Sofasco will provide it. Sofasco or its Authorized Service Providers will provide warranty service on products that are tendered or presented for service during the Warranty Period, as permitted by law. If the product is not portable, warranty service may be restricted to the country where the product is purchased. Service options, parts availability and response times will vary according to country. You may be responsible for shipping and handling charges if the product cannot be serviced in the country it is in. In accordance with applicable law, Sofasco may require that you furnish proof of purchase details and/or comply with registration requirements before receiving warranty service.
