Warranty Terms and Conditions
NOVATTE PTE. LTD. Standard Warranty
This warranty offer expressly supersedes any conflicting warranty terms listed in purchase orders, verbal agreements, or other warranty information set forth by NOVATTE PTE. LTD. (NOVATTE). This warranty automatically takes effect when the Buyer accepts the delivery of NOVATTE products and does not require any additional agreements.
NOVATTE offers Buyers of the M-series workstations, NovaSTACK, M1000 Render Farm, M500 Video Wall, G10 HPC Appliances, X- and R-series servers a free three-year limited warranty and Buyers of the M5 Mobile Workstation a free two-year limited warranty, each as described and limited in this Agreement. The term “Buyer” includes individuals, businesses, third-party vendors, or organizations that render payment for any Product. This limited warranty offered by this Agreement extends only to Buyer and is not transferable to anyone who subsequently purchases, leases or otherwise obtains Product from Buyer. This limited warranty does not cover software or non-NOVATTE branded products. This limited warranty covers parts, and return shipment costs. Buyer assumes shipment costs to NOVATTE. (NOVATTE offers service contracts for additional technical support and support services. Buyer should contact its NOVATTE sales representative for service contract information and terms.) However, this limited warranty does not include products manufactured by third-party vendors. Thus, this limited warranty does not cover third-party equipment, peripherals or monitors offered with NOVATTE Products. In the event of a third-party equipment, peripheral or monitor failure, Buyer should contact the third-party peripheral or monitor manufacturer for warranty redemption.
