A.1–Replaceable Swap Out Items
Customer invoice will indicate the swap out term for covered items. The Provider will cover the cost of the items and send via shipment method below. Phone support will be provided to assist with replacement. Provider reserves the right to exclude products from the policy and to replace a product with a replacement that is the equivalent in features and quality and not necessarily new, or the same model or name brand.
Replaced product will be shipped the next business day from time of received call and technical support department authorization. All replacement requests need to be verified by the Technical Support Center prior to the shipment or delivery of any replacement products. All returned items must be shipped prepaid. All manuals, cables, ribbons, paper guides, etc. must be returned. Provider is not responsible for shipper’s inability to ship or deliver products. When sending an item back, if it is improperly packaged and damaged in shipping, the Provider reserves the right to bill for the damaged item. Provider reserves the right to ship customer replacement items not the entire unit to fulfill this contract if it is feasible to do so.

Provider requires Customer to return the defective product within ten (10) days from receiving the replacement product. Provider is authorized to charge Customer’s credit card or account on file for the full amount of any and all product not returned within the above-mentioned time limitation. Unpaid invoices could result in the suspension of all services.
