NIMA LABS, INC.. LIMITED WARRANTY:
Nima Labs, Inc. (“Nima“) warrants to the original purchaser only that the Nima portable gluten sensor device you purchased (the “Product“) shall be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of retail purchase of the Product from Nima or an authorized Nima reseller by the original purchaser (“Warranty Period“).
If a hardware defect arises and a valid claim is received by Nima within the Warranty Period, Nima will, at its option and to the extent permitted by law, exchange the Product with a new or refurbished Product. If Nima, in its sole discretion, determines it is not reasonable to replace the defective Product, Nima may refund to you the purchase price paid for the Product. In the event of a defect, to the extent permitted by law, these are your sole and exclusive remedies. Shipping and handling charges may apply except where prohibited by applicable law. This Limited Warranty is valid only in the jurisdictions where the Products are sold by Nima itself or through its authorized reseller, and is valid to the extent permitted by the applicable laws of such jurisdictions. Any replacement Product will be warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period, or for any additional period of time that may be applicable in your jurisdiction.
2. How to Obtain Warranty Service:
To obtain warranty service, you must obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) from our customer service team and deliver the Product, in either its original packaging or packaging providing an equal degree of protection, together with proof of purchase, to the address specified by Nima. There are two options for return.
2a. Advanced Exchange:
Nima will ship a replacement Product to you before Nima receives the defective Product if you provide us with a valid credit card number and you authorize us to charge you for the replacement Product if we do not receive the defective Product within ten (10) days after we issue your RMA. Nima will cover the cost of shipping the Product back to a specific location. By sending the Product, you agree to transfer ownership to Nima. If the claim is justified based on this Limited Warranty, Nima shall bear the cost of shipping the replacement Product to you. Any Product returned to Nima without a valid warranty claim or without a RMA may be rejected, returned at sender’s cost (subject to prepayment), or kept for 30 days for sender’s pick-up and then disposed of in Nima’s sole discretion.
2b. Return & Replace:
Nima will wait to ship a replacement Product to you until such time as Nima receives the defective Product with the previously obtained RMA. Nima will cover the cost of shipping the product back to a specific location. By sending the Product, you agree to transfer ownership to Nima. If the claim is justified based on this Limited Warranty, Nima shall bear the cost of shipping the replacement Product to you. Any Product returned to Nima without a valid warranty claim or without a RMA may be rejected or kept for 30 days for sender’s pick-up and then disposed of in Nima’s sole discretion. For specific instructions on how to obtain warranty service on your Product, visit the Nima website (www.nimasensor.com).
It is your responsibility to backup any data, software, or other materials you may have stored or preserved on the Product. It is likely that such data, software, or other materials will be lost or reformatted during service, and Nima will not be responsible for any such damage or loss.
