ArecaDirect warrants its hardware products to be free from defects in material and workmanship, under normal use and service, and purchased from ArecaDirect or its authorized resellers during the warranty period. If a product proves to be defective in material or workmanship during the warranty period, ArecaDirect will, at its sole option, (a) repair the product using new, remanufactured, or refurbished parts, (b) replace the product with a product that is functionally equivalent to the original product, or (c) refund the purchase price of the product if it is not repairable or replaceable.
A replacement product/part assumes the remaining warranty of the original product. When a product or part is exchanged, any replacement item becomes customers' property and the replaced item becomes ArecaDirect property. When a refund is given, your product becomes ArecaDirect's property.
ArecaDirect doesn't warrant any products on which the serial number has been altered, defaced or removed, any products which are not sold by authorized resellers, or modified or removed or products that are damaged by service performed by anyone who is not explicitly authorized by ArecaDirect. The warranty does not cover the product for damages due to improper installation, improper testing, improper operation, abuse, misuse, accident, neglect, alteration, corrosion, and any acts of God.
ArecaDirect and its authorized resellers will provide its most comprehensive technical support, but are not liable for any damage to or loss of any programs, data, or other information stored on any media, or any other non-ArecaDirect products. Customers are advised to check the disclaimer for details.
