B. AVIGILON PRODUCT RETURN POLICY
The Avigilon Product Return Policy applies to Avigilon products that the purchaser is seeking to return to Avigilon immediately following their purchase. Returns directly to Avigilon are only available to the person that purchased the product directly from Avigilon. Correspondingly, to the extent the original consumer purchaser did not purchase the product directly from Avigilon, they must coordinate any product return with the entity they purchased the product from.
Subject to the conditions below, Avigilon will only offer credit, and not a refund of the purchase price, in exchange for returned products. Activated software licenses and Avigilon ACM customized hardware items cannot be returned for refund or credit.
If products are unopened and undamaged (factory sealed), they may be (i) returned for full credit within 30 days of purchase; or (ii) returned for credit, subject to a 20% restocking fee, between 31 and 60 days of purchase (inclusive). If products are opened, but include all parts and packaging with no cosmetic or other damage, as determined at Avigilon's sole discretion, they may be returned for credit within 60 days of purchase, subject to a 20% restocking fee. After 60 days from purchase, no product returns will be accepted.
To initiate a return of a purchased Avigilon product, the purchaser of the product (the Returning Party) must complete and submit the Return Request form available on the Avigilon website, at avigilon.com/rma/. Once received and reviewed by Avigilon, Avigilon will issue a return merchandise authorization ("RMA") number and shipping instructions to the Returning Party. The issuance of an RMA number and deliver of the product to Avigilon does not constitute confirmation that the return is valid. Items returned to Avigilon without an RMA number will be returned to the Returning Party at the Returning Party’s cost.
C. AVIGILON PRODUCT REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT POLICY
The Avigilon Product Repair and Replacement Policy applies to Avigilon products that are subject to the Avigilon Limited Warranty, both during the applicable warranty period (within-warranty) and following the applicable warranty period (out-of-warranty).
Avigilon Technical Support should be contacted at email@example.com for assistance with troubleshooting or technical support prior to the return of any possibly defective product. If the issue cannot be resolved, the product (whether within-warranty or out-of-warranty) may be returned to Avigilon for inspection and, as applicable, repair or replacement.
To initiate a return of a possibly defective Avigilon product for repair or replacement, the purchaser of the product (the "Returning Party") must complete and submit the Return Request form available on the Avigilon website, at avigilon.com/rma/. Once received and reviewed by Avigilon, Avigilon will issue a return merchandise authorization ("RMA") number and shipping instructions to the Returning Party. The issuance of an RMA number and delivery of the product to Avigilon does not constitute confirmation that the product is defective. Items returned to Avigilon without an RMA number will be returned to the Returning Party at the Returning Party's cost.
Upon receipt of the product, Avigilon will assess the condition of the product and, as applicable, make the following determinations, all at Avigilon's discretion:
- Determine whether the product is in fact defective or otherwise damaged. If Avigilon determines that the product is not defective or otherwise damaged, Avigilon will advise the Returning Party and make arrangements to return the product to the Returning Party at the Returning Party's cost.
- If the product is within-warranty, determine whether the defect or damage is covered by the warranty. If the defect is covered by the warranty, determine whether to repair or replace the product. The repaired or replacement product will then be returned to the Returning Party at Avigilon's cost. See also "Advance Replacement" below. If the defect is not covered by the warranty, Avigilon will then advise the Returning Party of available options and proceed accordingly. See also "Out-of-Warranty Products" below.
- If the product is out-of-warranty, determine whether the product can be repaired. Avigilon will then advise the Returning Party of available options and proceed accordingly. See also "Out-of-Warranty Products" below.
Avigilon may, at its discretion, use new, refurbished, or comparable parts or units in connection with the repair or replacement of any returned product.
Avigilon may, at its discretion, replace any product in advance that is possibly defective, as long as such product is within-warranty (i.e. replacement may be completed prior to the product being physically returned to or inspected by Avigilon). Once Avigilon receives the product, Avigilon will conduct a physical assessment of the product and provide confirmation of the return status.
If an advance replacement product is shipped to the Returning Party prior to the Returning Party's shipment of the original product to Avigilon, and Avigilon does not receive the original product from the Returning Party within 30 days of shipping the advance replacement product, the Returning Party will be invoiced for the full price of the advance replacement product at the Returning Party's standard contracted price.
If the returned product is determined by Avigilon, at its discretion, to:
- have no faults or defects, the Returning Party will be invoiced for 40% of the standard contracted price for the advance replacement product (if an advanced replacement product has already been shipped); or
- be defective or damaged in a manner that is not covered by the Avigilon Limited Warranty, the Returning Party will be invoiced for up to a maximum of 50% of the current MSRP price for the advance replacement product (if an advanced replacement product has already been shipped).
In either case above, the original product will not be returned by Avigilon to the Returning Party.
For any advance replacement product, the balance of the warranty of the original product will continue to apply.
For defective or damaged products that are out-of-warranty, or for in-warranty products whose defects or damage are not covered by the Avigilon Limited Warranty:
- A one-time replacement of any Avigilon cameras or encoders is available at a cost of 50% off of the then current MSRP price.
- A billable repair service may be available for any Avigilon HD Professional cameras, HD PTZ cameras, or HD LPR Capture kits with the repair costs charged on a time and materials basis and limited to a maximum of 50% of the current MSRP price for the product. To receive a quote for a repair, the product must be returned to Avigilon with an RMA number provided by Avigilon.
- Out-of-warranty replacements or repairs are only available during the active support life of the product.
- Out-of-warranty replacements or repairs are covered by a limited 90-day warranty.
- All shipping and handling, taxes and duties are billable to the Returning Party for out-of-warranty replacements and repairs.
