Limited One-Year Warranty
Columbia Marking Tools manufactures its hardware products from parts and components that are new or equivalent to new in accordance with industry-standard practices. Columbia warrants that the hardware products it manufactures will be free from defects in materials and workmanship. The warranty term is one year beginning on the date of invoice, as further described in the following text.
Damage due to shipping the products to you is covered under this warranty. Otherwise, this warranty does not cover damage due to external causes, including accident, abuse, misuse, problems with electrical power, servicing not authorized by Columbia Marking Tools, usage not in accordance with product instructions, failure to perform required preventive maintenance, and problems caused by use of parts and components not supplied by CMT.
This warranty does not cover any items that are in one or more of the following categories: software; external devices (except as specifically noted); accessories, parts or components added to a Columbia system after the system is shipped from CMT; accessories, parts or components that are not installed in the Columbia Marking Tools factory or associative companies; or accessories, parts or components that are sold with an expressed specific warranty in place of being covered under this warranty.
Columbia will repair or replace products covered under this limited warranty that are returned to Columbia’s facility. To request warranty service, you must call Columbia’s Return Material Authorization or Service Department within the warranty period. If warranty service is required, Columbia will issue a Return Material Authorization Number. You must ship the products back to Columbia in their original or equivalent packaging, prepay shipping charges, and insure the shipment or accept the risk of loss or damage during shipment. Columbia will ship the repaired or replacement products to you (freight prepaid) if you use an address in the continental U.S., where applicable. Shipments to other locations will be made freight collect. Columbia Marking Tools will not take responsibility for the cost of transportation required for the unit to be returned to the purchaser/owner.
NOTE: Before you ship the product(s) to Columbia, back up the data on the hard-disk drive(s) and any other storage device(s) in the product(s). Remove any removable media, such as diskettes, CDs, or PC Cards. CMT does not accept liability for lost data or software. ** CMT owns all parts removed from repaired products. Columbia Marking Tools will use new and reconditioned parts made by various manufacturers in performing warranty repairs and building replacement products. If Columbia repairs or replaces a product, its warranty term is not extended.
