Limited Warranty Statement
Maxtor's warranty obligations are limited to the terms set forth below.
Please note that Maxtor reserves the right to update from time to time the warranty terms provided for new purchases of Maxtor
products, and to establish the effective date of those updated warranty terms. Please refer to www.maxtor.com for the then current
form of Limited Warranty Statement for Maxtor brand products.
Please note that Maxtor products are distributed outside the United States and Canada through local authorized distributors and
resellers (“Resellers”). These Resellers generally offer a consumer warranty, and associated warranty services, to consumer
purchasers. Maxtor recommends that consumers in these jurisdictions first contact the Reseller from whom they purchased the
Maxtor product for all issues with regard to product defects and the applicable product warranty.
Maxtor warrants to the original consumer purchaser (“you”) that new Maxtor disk drive products (“New Products”) will be free from
defects in material and workmanship for the Standard Warranty Period for the relevant New Product. The Standard Warranty Period
for the various New Products marketed by Maxtor and for the geographies in which they are sold is detailed on www.maxtor.com.
The warranty period on replacements for New Products is the remainder of the warranty on the original New Product or 90 days
from the date of shipment of the replacement product, whichever is longer.
In addition to the New Products, Maxtor may from time to time sell refurbished disk drive products which are not new and which have
been reconditioned to Maxtor’s standards for refurbished products (“Refurbished Products”). Unless a warranty period (“Refurbished
Warranty Period”) is designated by Maxtor for the specific Refurbished Product either on www.maxtor.com or on the product packaging
(as applied by Maxtor), Refurbished Products are provided strictly on an “AS IS” basis and Maxtor disclaims any and all warranties or
conditions whatsoever for Refurbished Products.
To the extent that Maxtor so designates a warranty period for the Refurbished Product, Maxtor warrants to the original consumer
purchaser that the Refurbished Product will be free from defects in material and workmanship for the associated Refurbished
Warranty Period.
New Products and Refurbished Products are together referred to as “Products.” The start of the Standard Warranty Period or
Refurbished Warranty Period (together referred to as the “Warranty Period”), as the case may be, is the documented date of your
purchase of the Product from Maxtor or Maxtor’s authorized reseller. In the absence of a documented purchase date, the start of the
Warranty Period will be deemed the date of original shipment by Maxtor from its point of new or refurbish manufacture, as the case
may be, to Maxtor’s customer.
The Products are manufactured from parts and components that are new or equivalent to new in accordance with industry standards.
If you discover a defect in material or workmanship during the Warranty Period, and Maxtor agrees that the defect exists, Maxtor will,
at its option, repair or replace the Product at no charge to you, provided it is returned during the applicable Warranty Period, with
transportation charges prepaid, to the facility designated by Maxtor. The Product must be properly packaged in Maxtor or Maxtorapproved packaging, with the Return Material Authorization clearly displayed on the outside of the packaging, to obtain warranty service.
Products that fail within the first 30 days after purchase will be replaced with a new Product. Maxtor may require proper proof of
purchase documentation prior to issuing the replacement Product.
If Maxtor elects to repair a Product, Maxtor owns all parts removed from the repaired Product. Maxtor uses new and reconditioned
parts made by various manufacturers in conjunction with warranty repairs and replacement Products. Repair parts or replacement
Products may, at Maxtor's option, include an equal or better model or features.
Maxtor has no responsibility whatsoever with regard to any content or data on returned Products.
To request warranty service and before returning a Product to Maxtor, please contact the Maxtor Service Center. Refer to the Maxtor
Installation Guide or www.maxtor.com for your online guide to find the appropriate telephone number for obtaining customer assistance
within your jurisdiction and the proper address for shipping authorized returns. Once the Maxtor Service Center determines that a
repair is required, Maxtor will issue an RMA number. A copy of your receipt or bill of sale bearing the name and location of Maxtor’s
authorized reseller and the Maxtor serial number and model number of the Product in which the defect has been reported may be
required as a proof of your purchase for warranty service. Note that, as an alternative, Maxtor offers an online warranty return option
for certain Products through www.maxtor.com.
You are responsible for saving or backing up data contained in any Product returned to Maxtor in conjunction with warranty or any
other services. Maxtor shall have no responsibility for such data whatsoever and shall have no liability arising out of any damage to,
or loss or disclosure of, such data.
This limited warranty applies only to the Maxtor products that can be identified by the original, unaltered Maxtor trademark, trade
name or logo affixed to them. Maxtor does not warrant any product that is not manufactured by, for, or with permission from Maxtor,
or which is not otherwise distributed by Maxtor under the Maxtor brand.
This warranty does not cover any of the following conditions:
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
Abuse, unreasonable use, mistreatment, or neglect
Unusual physical or electrical stress or power fluctuations
Damage caused during installation of the Product
Damage or capacity/performance/operational resetting caused by the equipment or system with which the Product is used
Damage caused by modification or repair not made or authorized by Maxtor
Products whose Maxtor Serial Number and/or Material Number label have been removed, torn or defaced
Damage caused by use of non-Maxtor packaging
Damage caused by improper or improperly used packaging
Damage caused by lack of ESD protection
Products that are determined to be stolen.
Further, this limited warranty is void if the Product cover, or any label or seal on the Product, is removed or damaged.
Maxtor owns all parts removed from the repaired Products. Maxtor uses new and reconditioned parts in performing warranty repairs
and building replacement products.
FAILURE TO COMPLETE AND RETURN ANY MAXTOR PRODUCT REGISTRATION FORM WILL NOT DIMINISH YOUR WARRANTY RIGHTS.
Certain Products include software or firmware as a component (“Software”). Maxtor or its suppliers retain all rights of ownership in
such Software and any use of the Software is subject to the license agreement provided by Maxtor accompanying such Software. If
no license is provided by Maxtor, you are granted the limited right to use the Software as required for the operation of the Product and
no other rights are granted whatsoever. Certain Software is licensed under the GNU General Public License Agreement (“GPL
Software”). EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED BY MAXTOR IN A WRITTEN LICENSE AGREEMENT, SOFTWARE IS OFFERED “AS IS”
AND MAXTOR GRANTS NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, BY STATUTE, COMMUNICATIONS OR OTHERWISE
WITH REGARD TO THE SOFTWARE. MAXTOR SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NONINFRINGEMENT WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE. Please note that Maxtor makes the
source code for the GPL software available through www.maxtor.com.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THIS WARRANTY AND THE REMEDIES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN
LIEU OF ALL OTHERS, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, EXPRESSED, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY. OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH
HEREIN, MAXTOR SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW ANY AND ALL REPRESENTATIONS,
WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS AS TO THE PRODUCTS, SERVICES, OR ANY OTHER MATTER WHATSOEVER. IN PARTICULAR, BUT
WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, MAXTOR SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL IMPLIED OR DEEMED
WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, PERFORMANCE
IN A SKILLFUL AND WORKMANLIKE MANNER, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS OR ANY OTHER WARRANTY
ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY DOES NOT APPLY TO, AND MAXTOR MAKES
NO WARRANTY TO YOU WITH REGARD TO, PRODUCTS ORIGINALLY SOLD AS AN INTEGRATED COMPONENT OF A SYSTEM NOT SUPPLIED
BY MAXTOR, OR PRODUCTS PROVIDED UNDER A THIRD PARTY LEASING OR SERVICE ARRANGEMENT. No Maxtor distributor,
reseller, dealer, agent or employee is authorized to make any modification, extension or addition to this warranty.
MAXTOR IS NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, UNFORESEEABLE, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES HOWEVER CAUSED AND WHETHER OR NOT MAXTOR WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, INCLUDING
BUT NOT LIMITED TO, COSTS OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, LOSS OF DATA OR PROGRAMS, LOST PROFITS, DOWNTIME,
GOODWILL, DAMAGE OR REPLACEMENT OF EQUIPMENT AND PROPERTY, AND ANY COSTS OF RECOVERING, PROGRAMMING OR
REPRODUCING ANY PROGRAM OR DATA STORED IN OR USED WITH MAXTOR PRODUCTS OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF
THE PURCHASE, USE OR PERFORMANCE OF THE PRODUCT. Maxtor is not, and cannot be, responsible for any losses or damages
arising out of any loss of, or any inability to access, data as a result from the failure of a Product, and accordingly you bear this risk.
The allocation of risk under this limitation of liability is reflected in the purchase price of the Product. This limitation of liability,
however, will not apply to claims for death or personal injury caused by the negligence of Maxtor or its associated companies,
officers, representatives or agents.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or exclusions of implied or deemed
conditions or warranties, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights,
and you may also have other rights that vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. By way of example, if a Product is purchased from
Maxtor or Maxtor's authorized reseller by you in Europe, Africa or the Middle East, you may have additional warranty rights which
are explained at www.maxtor.com.
Please note that you are expressly not permitted to use the Products in conjunction with the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft
navigation, aircraft communication, aircraft flight control, aircraft air traffic control systems, weapons devices or systems, or in any
devices or systems in which a malfunction (including, without limitation, software related delay or failure) would result in foreseeable
risk of injury or death to the operator of the device or system, or to others.
This Statement of Limited Warranty shall be exclusively interpreted in accordance with the English language with the meaning of its
terms. Should any provisions of this Limited Warranty be declared invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction, the balance of this
Limited Warranty will remain in full force and effect. In addition, should a translation of this Limited Warranty deviate from the
English language version, only the English language version shall apply and be binding.
