Purchased Hardware: iboss warrants to the original purchaser only that Purchased Hardware shall
be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period
of one (1) year from the original purchaser’s date of purchase.
Licensed Hardware: iboss warrants that Licensed Hardware shall be free
from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use during the license
If a Hardware defect arises and iboss
receives a valid warranty claim within the applicable warranty period for
Purchased Hardware or Licensed Hardware, as applicable, then iboss will, at its
option and to the extent permitted by law, either (1) repair the Hardware at no
charge, using new or refurbished replacement parts, or (2) exchange the Hardware
with new or refurbished Hardware.
Any replacement Hardware product will
be warrantied for the greater of (a) the remainder of the original warranty
period, or (b) thirty (30) days, as well as any additional period of time that
may be required under the applicable law of the jurisdiction in which the
Hardware is purchased or licensed.
If iboss, in its sole discretion,
determines it is not practical to replace the defective Hardware, then iboss will
refund to Customer the purchase or license price, as applicable, that Customer
paid for the Hardware. To the extent permitted by law, these are Customer’s
sole and exclusive remedies regarding defective Hardware. This limited warranty
is valid only in jurisdictions where iboss, either itself or through an
authorized reseller, a distributor, a partner, or an agent, sells or licenses
Hardware, and is subject to the applicable warranty laws of such jurisdictions.
c. Obtaining Warranty Service: To obtain warranty service, Customer must obtain a
Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) from iboss’ customer service team by
contacting support at 858.568.7051 or and deliver the Hardware, in either its original
packaging or packaging providing an equal degree of protection, together with
proof of purchase or license, to the address specified by iboss. Except where
prohibited by applicable law, Customer agrees to pay the cost of shipping the Hardware
to iboss. With regard to returns of Purchased Hardware, Customer agrees that
upon iboss’ receipt of the Purchased Hardware from Customer, the ownership of
the Purchased Hardware transfers to iboss. If iboss determines that the claim
is eligible for warranty coverage, then iboss shall bear the cost of shipping
the repaired or replacement Hardware to Customer. Any Purchased Hardware
returned to iboss without a valid warranty claim or without an RMA may be
rejected or returned at sender’s cost (subject to prepayment), or kept for 30
days for sender’s pick-up and then disposed of in iboss’ sole discretion.
If iboss sends Customer replacement Hardware prior to iboss’ receipt of Customer’s defective Hardware, Customer must return the defective Hardware within thirty (30) days of Customer’s receipt of the replacement Hardware. Any defective Hardware not returned to iboss within that thirty (30) day-period will be billed to Customer in the full amount of iboss’ then current sale price for the Hardware.
It is Customer’s responsibility to back up any data, software, or other materials Customer may have stored or preserved on the Hardware. It is likely that such data, software, or other materials will be lost or reformatted during service, and iboss will not be responsible for any such damage or loss.

manufactured by or for iboss that can be identified by the “iboss”,

logos affixed to it. This warranty does not apply to any (a) iboss products and
services other than the Hardware, (b) consumables (such as batteries), (c)
