9. Bring-in warranty for dealing with repairs/claims under warranty – RMA’s
9.1. The General Conditions of Sale and Supply of TEGUAR CORPORATION shall apply.
The warranty provided by TEGUAR CORPORATION is a “bring-in” warranty. This means that in the event of a claim, the device will be returned, insured and freight-paid by the buyer, to an address specified by TEGUAR CORPORATION. TEGUAR CORPORATION will bear the costs of return transport via UPS Ground service for the repaired product within the continental US. Unless indicated differently on the invoice, for all items of hardware (new goods) a warranty of 12 months (the warranty period starts on the date indicated on the customer invoice) according to current statutory provisions shall apply. In the case of second-hand goods, the relevant warranty period agreed upon shall apply. If nothing specific has been agreed in regards to the used item warranty terms, Teguar provides a warranty of 3 months. The warranty covers the necessary spare parts, labor and return transport. Not included are software and its installation after replacement of a part or device. In the event of improper handling of the device (for example damage resulting from a drop), the warranty becomes null and void. As batteries and fans are wearing parts, we can offer a maximum warranty of 6 months on these parts. The supply of spare parts or repairs does not extend the original warranty.
TEGUAR CORPORATION can only rectify defects up to system interfaces. Defects that arise in connection with the use of peripheral equipment that was not acquired from TEGUAR CORPORATION are excluded from the warrantied performance and can only be addressed if the buyer agrees to pay for the necessary repairs. In the event of repairs to equipment outside the warranty, the buyer will receive a cost estimate in advance for approval.
In the case of warranty claims/returns please include wherever possible:
1. Proof of warranty, for example a copy of the delivery note or invoice
2. A comprehensible description of the defect, which should be as detailed as possible. Please note that the system will undergo a general operating test, but it is primarily the specified defect that will be remedied.
Send returns in original packaging or at least packaging of equivalent quality. Please purchase adequate transit insurance for any returns. TEGUAR CORPORATION is not liable for replacement due to loss or damage that is caused during transportation.
In the case of a defect or damage, please obtain an RMA number from Teguar. Instruction for the RMA process can be found here.
Where goods are returned to TEGUAR CORPORATION, but, despite in-depth testing, no defects can be found, as well as in the case of password-protected systems, where the customer has failed to provide all necessary passwords, TEGUAR CORPORATION charges an administration fee of $50 USD. In the event of lack of proof of warranty, TEGUAR CORPORATION is forced to charge the full costs for parts and labor to the customer.
Furthermore, please note:
→ Before sending goods back to us, please obtain an RMA number at: https://teguar.com/support/rma-procedure/
→ Shipments will only be accepted if they arrive at our premises freight-paid
→ No claims can be made under warranty if the goods have been damaged due to unsuitable packaging, or for goods where the warranty seal or serial number have been damaged or removed.
The same applies if the system has been opened incorrectly.
→ TEGUAR CORPORATION can accept no liability for loss of saved data. In any event, always back up your data before returning equipment to us.
In the event of transport damage, please notify the transport company responsible within 24 hours because otherwise you might lose any right to claim compensation. Make a note of all agreements, contact persons, dates and times of conversations.
