@Xi EXPRESS PARTS REPLACEMENT

Within the duration of the @Xi warranty, pursuant to the warranty claim requirement set hereunder, in the Continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, and APO/FPO addresses only and depending on the nature of the failure, @Xi Computer provides its Direct Original Customers with an exclusive EXPRESS PARTS REPLACEMENT program. Within the validity and applicability of the @Xi Limited Warranty, in the event one or more components of an @Xi product(s) is found to be faulty or defective, @Xi will ship the replacement part(s) to the site of the Customer, free of charge by FedEx Standard Overnight or equivalent shipping service and supply a return label for the faulty or defective part. An RMA form will be issued by the @Xi Tech Support with the description of the faulty part, the problem of the fault, a retail value of the part(s) and the written agreement of the customer to return the faulty part within 10 days of receipt of the replacement one. A major credit card is requested to guarantee such return unless he or she is already an approved customer on net terms. Is such case, a valid customer Purchase Order number is required by written, prior to shipment. If the customer is not capable to provide a valid credit card or approved P.O. for the amount of the faulty part(s), such part(s) must be returned before the replacement part can be shipped. If the faulty part(s) is not returned within thirty (10) days after the Customer has received the replacement part(s), @Xi will, without further notice, charge the Customer credit card or debit the Customer account with the retail amount contained in the original RMA form and issue a sale invoice for the replaced part(s). Such sale is considered final. If the Customer has purchased from @Xi an On-Site service contract (issued from a third party provider) at the time of purchase, the exact same procedure will be applied to part(s) provided at the site of customer to be installed by the On-Site service provider staff. @Xi reserves the right to replace part(s) with equally functional parts new or refurbished. Such part(s) are guaranteed for 90 days or up to the end of the original system warranty, whichever is longer. At sole @Xi discretion, within the continental USA only, the complete @Xi system unit may be recalled (if under warranty) to perform services or verifications that are beyond a simple and easy replacement of a faulty part(s). In such case @Xi will pay the freight both ways based on FedEx Economy or equivalent second day service. The Customer can elect to pay shipping to @Xi with an Overnight Service of his choice and @Xi will send it back FedEx Standard overnight (or equivalent) at @Xi expense. All efforts are made to minimize the turn around time of such unit accordingly to an accurate testing and verification on the unit functionality, as specified by the above procedure and pursuant to the warranty claims set hereunder. @Xi assumes no responsibility for loss or damage of any data from @Xi products shipped to @Xi for repair or replacement. In case of customer fault that affects the unit functionality, like software viruses, improper software installation or modifications, or malfunction due to hardware or software products not originally purchased by @Xi, the customer will be billed for the freight cost plus the current @Xi service repair rate. An estimate will be provided to the customer before proceeding with the work. Customer agrees to at least pay for freight and $85.00 inspection fee in such a case. All service will be provided pursuant to the present service and warranty conditions and warranty and service claim procedures described hereunder.

Shipment of warranty parts outside the United States.
For all other warranty parts being ship outside the United States, is sole discretion of @Xi to advance ship the replacement part with a credit card guarantee under the guidelines of the domestic EXPRESS PART REPLACEMENT program. If a credit card guarantee is not acceptable, Customer will have to return the defective part back to @Xi first. Customer pays for the return shipping cost of the defective part while @Xi will ship the replacement part to Customer, free of charge using International Economy Air or equivalent.

ON SITE SERVICE

Installation hardware labor will be provided at the client site only if the client chose, at the time of the original purchase only, to purchase on-site service from an @Xi-authorized Third-party service provider. On Site Service will be provided pursuant to the terms of such on-site service contract, at sole discretion of @Xi technical support engineers. On Site service is available in major USA and Canada locations for the duration of one year or three years if so purchased.
