Getac Five (5) Year Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty
 
Getacʼs warranty obligations for this hardware product are limited to the terms set forth below:
 
Getac, Inc. warrants this Getac-branded rugged computer against defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and damage that occurs due to accidental acts and exposure to environmental conditions for a period of FIVE (5) YEARS from the date of purchase by the original end-user purchaser (“Warranty Period”). This warranty only applies to products sold by Getac or its Authorized Distributors or Dealers and only where the products are used and serviced within North America or its Authorized Service Providersʼ territories. Warranty coverage only applies to service carried out by a Getac Authorized Service Provider.
 
If a hardware defect arises and a valid claim is received within the Warranty Period, at its option and to the extent permitted by law, Getac will either repair the defect at no charge, using new or refurbished replacement parts, or exchange the product with a product that is new or which has been manufactured from new or serviceable used parts and is at least functionally equivalent to the original product. A replacement product or part, including a user- installable part that has been installed in accordance with instructions provided by Getac, assumes the remaining warranty of the original product or ninety (90) days from the date of replacement or repair, whichever provides longer coverage for you. When a product or part is exchanged, any replacement product becomes your property and the replaced item becomes Getacʼs property. Parts provided by Getac in fulfillment of its warranty obligation must be used in products for which warranty service is claimed.
 
Exclusions and Limitations

Batteries supplied with the product are covered under the warranty for one (1) year from date of purchase.
