Choice IT Global Equipment Warranty
Choice IT Global LLC (Choice IT Global) believes the best way to demonstrate true commitment to quality and value is by offering our end-user clients an unprecedented industry leading standard serviceable lifetime warranty on all pre-owned OEM-branded network equipment, as well as all new DataLight Optics branded products. For dealers, resellers, brokers & distributors there is a 90 day warranty on all pre-owned OEM-branded equipment and a lifetime warranty on all DataLight Optics branded products. For other New compatible offerings from Choice IT Global there is a lifetime warranty for all customers (end-users and resellers).
Choice IT Global warrants that the Equipment sold to Buyer will be free from defects in material and workmanship for the lifetime of such Equipment provided that the Equipment is properly used and maintained.
We will replace non-working or defective Equipment in accordance with the terms of our Warranty as set forth below.
For as long as our client owns the equipment, they will be 100% fully covered in the event of an equipment failure. During the warranty period, Choice IT Global will replace any defective Equipment, or if it is unable to locate a suitable replacement, Choice IT Global will repair the Equipment. If it is unable to do either, Choice IT Global will refund the purchase price to Buyer.
If you experience an equipment failure within one year of purchase, our technical engineering team will either solve your problem over the phone or email or approve an overnight advance replacement unit. Our advance replacement allows for replacement units to be sent before the original unit has left your location. There will be no wait for repair or return of original equipment and we cover freight for the replacement as well as the return within this 1-year time frame.
After the first year, and for as long as you own the equipment, if you experience an equipment failure, you can send the equipment back to Choice IT Global and we will repair or replace the equipment with the exact model, or a model with the same functionality within 7 business days of receipt.
This warranty does not apply to any failure of the Equipment as a result of misuse, abuse, accident, neglect or mishandling, lack of proper maintenance, environmental factors, improper installation or configuration, flood, fire or other natural disasters, physical damage, electrical issues such as lightning, power surges or incorrect electrical voltages, or improper modifications.
This warranty is only valid for the original purchaser of the Equipment (“Buyer”).
