Warranties that have been activated do not cause the warranty period to be extended, nor do they trigger a new warranty period. The warranty period for any replacement parts installed ends with the warranty period for the entire product. 5. Any other or further claims are excluded, especially those for replacement due to damage caused outside of the product, provided there is no obligatory legal liability. We therefore accept no liability for accidental, indirect or other consequential damage of any kind, which leads to usage restrictions, data loss, loss of earnings or interruption to business.

Asserting a warranty claim 1. To make use of the warranty service, you must contact the AXDIA Service Center by email, fax or phone (see below for contact details). You can also use the service form on our website or on the back of the warranty conditions. 2. AXDIA Service Center will try to diagnose and solve your problem. If it is determined that a warranty claim exists, you will be given an RMA number (Return Material Authorization) and you will be asked to send the product to AXDIA.

IMPORTANT: AXDIA will only accept parcels that have an RMA number. Please observe the following when sending the product:

2. Mark the RMA number on the outside of the package in such a way that it is visible and clearly legible. 3. You must enclose a copy of the sales slip as proof of purchase. 4. Once AXDIA has received the product, it will meet its warranty obligations in accordance with the warranty conditions and will return the product to the sender with carriage and insurance paid.

Service outside of warranty AXDIA can refuse any service claim made that is not covered by the warranty. If AXDIA agrees to provide a service outside the warranty, the customer will be invoiced for all repair and transport costs. AXDIA will not accept any packages that have not first been approved by AXDIA by means of an RMA (Return Material Authorization).
