  • the Customer (if asked to do so by the Company) returns the Product to the Company at the Customer’s own cost; and

5.2. The Company may conduct diagnostic tests on the Product to determine the cause of failure / defect. The Company’s decision on all claims, including without limitation whether there is a defect in the Product, the cause of failure / defect, validity of the warranty, and what remedy is to be provided, shall be conclusive and the Customer shall agree to abide by such decision.

5.3. Products with valid warranty subsisting upon repair or replacement continue to be under warranty for the remainder of its Warranty Period, or for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of completion of repair or replacement, whichever is longer.

Repair or replacement may involve the use of functionally equivalent refurbished or reconditioned products or parts.

5.5. Any replaced product or part, or fully refunded product, shall become the absolute property of the Company and must be returned to the Company.

6. WHAT CEED LTD WILL NOT DO.
