6.2) We will make reasonable efforts to dispatch Products by the agreed-upon date with the Customer. However, we cannot be held liable for delays in delivery due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control, such as delays caused by delivery companies or manufacturer lead times. If a delay is anticipated, we will use reasonable efforts to communicate with the Customer and provide information about the delay. If a customer who is a Consumer finds the revised delivery date unacceptable, they are entitled to cancel the order.

6.3) In the case of Business Customers, if we are unable to deliver the Products within 30 days of the agreed delivery date, the Business Customer’s sole remedy is the right to cancel the order and request a refund of any payments made for that order. To cancel, the Business Customer must send written notice of cancellation to us after the date as mentioned earlier but before the delivery of the products or notification from us that the Products are ready for delivery.

6.4) For Business Customers, we do not accept liability for shortages or damage to deliveries unless the Business Customer notifies us in writing within 48 hours of receiving the delivery. Business Consumers should report shortages or damage within a reasonable timeframe after becoming aware of them.

6.5) Business Customers are required to be able to accept the Products during Normal Working Hours when they are ready for delivery.

6.6) The Products are at the risk of the Customer from the moment of their delivery to the Designated Carrier. If, for any reason, the Customer refuses delivery of any Products when they are ready for dispatch to the Designated Carrier or is unable to dispatch the Products to the Designated Carrier on time due to failure to provide appropriate instructions, documents, or authorizations, the risk in the Products will pass to the Customer (including for loss or damage caused by negligence). From the moment of signed proof of delivery, the Products will be deemed to have been delivered, and we may store the Products until delivery. In such cases, the Customer will be liable for all related costs and expenses, and Condition 4.2 shall apply.

6.7) Title in the Products does not transfer to the Customer until we receive full payment.

6.8) If the Customer is unable to accept delivery, we may, at our discretion: (i) store and insure the Products at the Customer’s expense and risk, (ii) sell the Products at the best reasonably obtainable price and, after deducting reasonable storage, insurance, and selling costs, pay the Customer any excess over the sale price or charge the Customer for any shortfall, or (iii) reschedule delivery, with additional delivery costs charged to the Customer.

6.9) The Customer may request proof of delivery, provided the request is made in writing within 3 months of the delivery date. We will make reasonable efforts to provide such proof. After this period, delivery shall be considered successfully completed.

6.10) Upon delivery of the Products, the Customer will be asked to sign a proof of delivery to confirm safe receipt. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that the number of packages delivered matches the number stated on the delivery note. Any discrepancy or evident packaging damage should be noted on the proof of delivery without amendments.

7 – Delivery Options

7.1) Standard Delivery: Our standard delivery option ensures that you receive your complete order within 3 to 4 Business days. This timeline begins when all the items in your order are in stock and ready for dispatch.

8- Product Availability

While we strive to maintain consistent availability for all items featured, we cannot guarantee constant stock levels. In the rare event that your selected item is unavailable, we will promptly get in touch with you to provide information on expected delivery dates. Should a product remain unavailable after the indicated waiting period, we will contact you via email or phone to discuss the possibility of extending the wait time or suggesting an alternative product. Even if a product appears as “out of stock” on our website, there’s a chance that one of our suppliers may still have it in stock. If you’d like to inquire about this, please don’t hesitate to contact us via phone or email.

This will be the sole recourse available to the Customer in such circumstances.

11 – Trade Names and Trademarks

11.1) Trade names and trademarks (excluding those bearing ‘s) do not consistently signify the actual producer of a specific product; instead, they might suggest common usage systems and machinery related to these products.

We cannot be held accountable for faults or damage not caused by our service engineers or contracted agents. In the event of a claim arising concerning the level of skill and judgment employed during the provision of Services, we reserve the sole discretion to appoint an independent expert in the field to assess the work carried out in delivering the Services. Furthermore, we are not responsible for equipment that has been altered or configured by parties other than us after installation or configuration.

Knepp Ave., Fullerton, California 92832 - United States.

Returned Products will not be accepted without an RMA Number. Do not write directly on the manufacturer’s packaging; please affix the RMA number to the provided address label with the Returns Material Authorization. Any damage to the manufacturer’s packaging or inadequate packaging may lead to the rejection of the return or an additional restocking fee at our sole discretion.

12.11) We cannot be held liable for packages damaged during transit. The Customer is responsible for packaging the product to prevent damage properly.

12.14) Some manufacturers require Products to be returned within 7 days or less to qualify for a refund. In such cases, the manufacturer’s time limit takes precedence, and we will only accept returns within 7 days of purchase or the manufacturer’s specified limit if it is less than 7 days. For defective products that do not meet the description, we can only accept returns if they are sent to us within 7 days. Beyond this period, you will be deemed to have accepted the Products and are responsible for inspecting them upon receipt. Please note that this period is reduced to 2 days for clearance bargains and ‘NCCR’ products, as outlined in clause 15.

12.15) This warranty replaces all other warranties, including implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. It represents our only warranty regarding the products. Furthermore, we make no warranties concerning performance, production, expendable or wearing parts, or any separately listed product item that is not explicitly covered herein.

These may include but are not limited to, business or profit losses, goodwill erosion, harm to business relationships, data loss, and other financial setbacks. It’s important to note that “financial loss” in this context does not pertain to the amount you paid for the Products.

31.3) We pledge to make every reasonable effort to service or repair the products and address any reported faults to the best of our abilities.

31.4) In cases where customers have multiple units of uncertain status, we can provide quotes for a testing service that does not include any repairs. Once these reports are available, customers can request repair quotes separately.

31.5) We will provide repair cost estimates based on the information available at the time of the quote request. If, upon inspection of the products, it is not feasible to repair them within the agreed-upon cost, an “uplift” in the repair price may be necessary. In such cases, we will communicate the reasons for the price adjustment, and the new repair cost will be provided to the customer. If the customer declines the uplift, the unit will be returned as “Beyond Economical Repair” at no additional cost (excluding shipping fees). If the customer requests test results, they will be charged at the test rate rather than the repair rate (see 32.4).

31.6) We retain the right to classify products as “Beyond Repair.”

31.7) The availability of necessary parts will dictate the timeline for repairs.

31.8) If products must be held due to parts availability or other reasons, we will promptly inform the customer and not be held liable for any resulting delays.

31.9) During the inspection phase, if the cost of required parts exceeds the repair price, this additional cost may be passed on to the customer as an “uplift” in the repair cost. We will only order these parts after receiving confirmation from the customer accepting the adjusted repair price. If the customer declines the uplift, the products will be returned as “Beyond Economical Repair” at no extra cost (excluding shipping fees). If the customer requests test results, they will be charged at the test rate rather than the repair rate.

31.10) Parts and components used for repairs or other services may be new or reconditioned, meeting factory specifications and functionality equivalent to new parts.

31.11) Customers are responsible for backing up or removing any data/configuration stored on the products before shipping them to us.

31.12) All data/configuration will be erased from the products as part of the standard repair process.

31.13) We are not responsible or liable for any loss, deletion, or inaccessibility of data stored on the products.

31.14) We do not guarantee that products will be upgraded to the “latest” software version due to copyright and licensing constraints.

31.15) Occasionally, upgrading or downgrading products may be necessary due to Hardware Storm/software compatibility issues. If there are licensing costs associated with this, we will seek the customer’s approval.

31.16) Customers are responsible for ensuring that all products are shipped with complete internal and external memory/flash/flash cards. Incomplete products will be tested with “reference” parts, which will be removed before return to the customer.

31.17) Warranty will not cover products found faulty due to missing memory/flash/flash cards.

31.18) Software issues are not covered under warranty and will be charged at the full repair price.

31.19) We provide a 12-month warranty for the actual repair but not for the entire unit.

31.20) Warranty claims must be submitted in writing within this period, quoting the serial number, using our standard RMA procedure (See clause 11).

31.21) It is crucial that the customer’s insurance covers the shipment of products to and from our repair facility. We will make reasonable efforts to notify customers within 48 hours of any damage to products received at our premises.

31.22) During the inspection phase, if products are found to have “No Fault Found” (NFF), we will send courtesy communications to the customer, requesting further information if necessary.

31.23) If there is no response from the customer or their representative regarding the resolution of an NFF after ten days of quarantine, we will return the products as NFF, charging the full repair price.

31.24) All products undergo a minimum soak test period of 2 hours unless an intermittent fault is suspected, in which case the soak test may extend up to 5 days (depending on the product type, etc.).

31.25) If a customer urgently requests the return of products during extended soak testing, it may affect warranty terms. We will inform the customer if the “turn-around time” will be impacted due to extended soak testing.

31.26) Repaired products will be returned to the customer within five working days from the inspection date. In case of unforeseen circumstances causing delays, we will promptly notify the customer.

31.27) Customers should include details of the suspected product fault whenever possible. Failure to do so may impact the quote and turnaround time.

31.28) Where feasible, We commit to providing diagnostic/test reports generated from the repaired products. However, to protect our intellectual property, we may not specify which (if any) parts were replaced or provide details of specific repair actions.

31.29) Customers are responsible for the transportation costs of sending products to and from their location. Transport costs will be invoiced to the customer, regardless of whether they accept a service quote or if services are performed on the products.

31.30) Products must be securely packaged to prevent physical damage and electrostatic discharge.

31.31) All modules within chassis-based products should be removed unless they are explicitly included in the purchase order and require testing/repair.
