Customer is responsible for all shipping and delivery charges for the returned Hardware.

      5. Once the Hardware is received by AI, AI will evaluate the warranty eligibility and cause of the defect and, if covered by warranty, AI will notify customer of repair or replacement and estimated time to complete.

In the event customer returns Hardware not under warranty, customer may choose to either a) have the Hardware repaired at the quoted price; b) request AI return the Hardware “as is”; or 3) upgrade the Hardware to a new Hardware version at a discounted price to be provided by AI. Any evaluation fee paid to AI by customer will be applied to the quoted price of repair or the cost of upgraded Hardware.
