WARRANTY – HARDWARE:

If Buyer does not issue an acceptance report within three (3) business days from the Products arrival it will be assumed that Product is accepted as is. Products that are supplied by ALC to Buyer that are manufactured and provided to ALC by a third-party vendor are not warranted by ALC; but ALC agrees to assign any warranty rights to any such Product that ALC may have received from the original manufacturer or third-party supplier, to the extent such assignment is allowed by such original manufacturer or third party supplier. If any Products purchased from ALC become defective during the warranty period Buyer shall promptly notify ALC or their ALC representative. A RMA will be issued and Product shall be returned to ALC’s site in Everett, WA for repair or replacement. Buyer shall bear cost of all freight charges to return Product to ALC site and ALC shall bear all freight costs to return Product to Buyer. This warranty only extends to manufactured ALC Product or labor on said product. It does not cover any product that is deemed to be misused or neglected in use, storage, or handling; or that were modified or serviced without ALC’s express written authorization; or which have had their original identification markings removed, altered, or defaced. It also does not extend to any Products provided from a third party vendor, as stated above.
