ODYS - MDV 30
The following conditions comprise the requirements and scope
of our warranty conditions and do not affect our legal and
contractual warranty obligations.
We offer a warranty on our products in accordance
with the following conditions:
1. Odys products are covered by a 24 month warranty. We will
resolve damages or defects on Odys products free of charge
within 12 months of the purchase date under the following
warranty conditions. For any damage or defect determined later
than 12 months after the purchase date, proof of a manufacturing
fault must be submitted for repair under warranty.
The warranty does not cover batteries and other parts, which are
considered consumables, parts that break easily such as glass or
plastic or defects based on normal wear and tear. There is no
warranty obligation in the event of marginal differences compared
to the target appearance and workmanship provided these have
a negligible effect on the product's fitness for use, in the event of
damage caused by chemical or electrochemical effects, by water
or generally from abnormal conditions.
2. The warranty will be performed in such a way that we shall
decide whether to repair the defective parts or to replace them
with working parts free of charge. AXDIA reserves the right to
exchange the product for a replacement product of equal value if
the product that is sent in cannot be repaired within a reasonable
time or at reasonable cost. The product can also be exchanged
for a different model of the same value. Requests cannot be
made for repairs to be carried out on site. Parts that have been
replaced or exchanged become our property.
3. The warranty claim does not apply if repairs or other work is
carried out by unauthorized persons or if our products are
equipped with additional parts or accessories that are not
approved for our products.
4. 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
EN
1. To make use of the warranty service, you must contact the
AXDIA Service Center by e-mail, 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:
1. Send the product suitably packaged with carriage and insurance
paid. Do not enclose any accessories with the products (no
cables, CD's, memory cards, manuals, etc.), unless the AXDIA
Service Centre specifies otherwise.
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).
