We reserve the right to cancel your order if we fail to receive your payments in the period specified by us and communicated to you.
All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you a shipping confirmation email confirming the shipment of your order.

We will not be obliged to supply any other products or services which may have been part of your order but are not included in the shipping confirmation.

During the Warranty Period, we will undertake to repair, or based on our sole discretion, to replace a defective part/component of the product or a defective product by an identical or similar (e.g. newer) version of the part/component of the product or the product, unless the defect falls under the warranty limitations (set out above). The repair of the product during the Warranty Period is free of charge for the parts, components and labor necessary in order to perform the repair and restore the product’s proper operating condition, provided the unit is returned otherwise undamaged and shipping prepaid, including insurance, to our service processing facility.
The costs incurred in connection with the returning of the product, part, or component to our service processing facility shall be borne by you. If the product, part, or component is returned uninsured, you assume all risks of loss or damage during shipment.
