Obtaining Warranty Service
Sonnet’s warranty obligations are limited to the terms set forth below: Sonnet, as defined below, warrants Sonnet-branded hardware products against defects in materials and workmanship under normal use to the original end-user purchaser for the Warranty Period. If a hardware defect arises and a valid claim is received within the Warranty Period, at its option, Sonnet will either (1) repair the hardware defect at no charge, using new or refurbished replacement parts, or (2) exchange the product with a product that is new or which has been manufactured from new or serviceable used parts and is at least functionally equivalent to the original product, or (3) refund the purchase price of the product. Sonnet may request that you replace defective parts with new or refurbished user-installable parts that Sonnet provides in fulfillment of its warranty obligation. A replacement product or part, including a user-installable part that has been installed in accordance with instructions provided by Sonnet, assumes the remaining warranty of the original product or thirty (30) days from the date of replacement or repair, whichever provides longer coverage for you. When a product or part is exchanged, any replacement item becomes your property and the replaced item becomes Sonnet’s property. Parts provided by Sonnet in fulfillment of its warranty obligation must be used in products for which warranty service is claimed. When a refund is given, the product for which the refund is provided must be returned to Sonnet and becomes Sonnet’s property.
All new Sonnet Products purchased on or after January 1, 2019, have a Two Year Limited Warranty, except as listed below. All new Sonnet Products purchased on or before December 31, 2018, have a One Year Limited Warranty, except as listed below. Refurbished Sonnet products have a One Year Limited Warranty.

CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS
FOR CONSUMERS WHO ARE COVERED BY CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS OR REGULATIONS IN THEIR COUNTRY OF PURCHASE, OR, IF DIFFERENT, THEIR COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE, THE BENEFITS CONFERRED BY THIS WARRANTY ARE IN ADDITION TO ALL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES CONVEYED BY SUCH CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS AND REGULATIONS. Some countries, states and provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or exclusions or limitations on the duration of implied warranties or conditions, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary by country, state or province.
This Limited Warranty is governed by and construed under the laws of the country in which the product purchase took place. Sonnet, the warrantor under this Limited Warranty, is identified at the end of this document according to the country or region in which the product purchase took place.
If your product is capable of storing data or software programs, you should make periodic backup copies of the data and programs contained on the product’s hard drive(s) or other storage media to protect your data and as a precaution against possible operational failures. Sonnet and its Authorized Service Providers are not liable for any damage to or loss of any programs, data, or other information stored on any media, or any non-Sonnet product or part not covered by this warranty. Recovery and reinstallation of system and application software and user data are not covered under this Limited Warranty.
OBTAINING WARRANTY SERVICE
A Sonnet representative or Sonnet Authorized Service Provider will help determine whether your product requires service and, if it does, will inform you how Sonnet will provide it. Sonnet or its Sonnet Authorized Service Providers will provide warranty service on products that are tendered or presented for service during the Warranty Period, as permitted by law. You may be responsible for shipping charges. In accordance with applicable law, Sonnet may require that you furnish proof of purchase details and/or comply with registration requirements before receiving warranty service. Please refer to the accompanying documentation for more details on this and other matters on obtaining warranty service.
Before you deliver your product for warranty service it is your responsibility to keep a separate backup copy of the system software, application software and data, and disable any security passwords. You will be responsible for reinstalling all such software, data and passwords. Sonnet and its Authorized Service Providers are not liable for any damage to or loss of any programs, data, or other information stored on any media delivered for warranty service.
For warranty periods over two years, you will be responsible for shipping charges to and from Sonnet USA, or Sonnet's designee.
