Warranty Information
These terms and conditions apply to you as you have availed of the customization service you have ordered from CRAFT. We recommend you read these terms and conditions carefully before completing your order for customization services and retain a copy for future reference.
Section I:
(a) Craft warrants this product against workmanship defects and non-accidental hardware failures for a pre-determined time period dependent on the level of warranty purchased by the customer. The standard warranty provided on new products purchased from Craft supplies the customer with 12 (twelve) months of coverage against aforementioned defects and failures unless an extended 06 (six) month warranty has been purchased. Some exclusions may apply - for exceptions see (b, c, and d). If the customer discovers a defect in the workmanship or experiences operational failures of any new product within the first 7 (seven) days after receipt Craft will, at its option, repair, replace or refund the product for the full purchase price provided the product is returned to the Craft service department within 30 (thirty) days, after obtaining a return product authorization (RPA number) prior to shipping the defective product (see Section II). Returns for any other reason must also be made within 30 (thirty) days of receipt including the aforementioned RPA number and will be subject to a 25% restocking fee.
(b) Products purchased from a Craft authorized retailer are covered by our standard warranty extending for 12 (twelve) months from the date of sale as long as a copy of the dated sales receipt is included with the product. Authorized retailers cannot make any changes or extensions to the warranty terms and conditions. Craft will not honor the warranty on an authorized retailer product without a copy of the receipt. Products requiring warranty services must be sent back to Craft with a RPA reference number and not the authorized retailer in question.
(c) Personal product sent in for the Craft coloring process is warrantied against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 30 (thirty) days from the date of shipping the finished product. Note that the coloring process will typically void any non-Craft outstanding warranties the customer may have. If you discover a defect, Craft will, at its option, repair or replace the product as long as the default is found to be at the fault of Craft and reported within the aforementioned thirty (thirty) day period.
(d) Gaming controllers sold as a customized accessory, have a standard warranty of 90 days.
Section II:
When sending in a product for repairs, the RPA reference number must appear plainly on the outside of the shipping packaging. RPA numbers can be obtained by emailing or calling Craft at the address and phone number printed on the Craft website. All RPA numbers are valid for 30 (thirty) days after being issued after which the customer must contact Craft for a new RPA number or the product in question will be returned to the listed shipping address without being serviced. Customers must attach their name, address, telephone number, email address, RPA number and description of problem to each product returned for warranty service. Craft will, at its option, cover any transportation fees relating to the return of the RPA product to the customer only if the return shipping address is within the country of the original order. Any product returned for repairs without a RPA number will be returned to sender, without exception, due to failure to follow proper policy. Also note that Craft has no liability for loss of recorded data, the cost of recovery of lost data, lost profits and the cost of installation or removal of any products or the installation of replacement products. Repair and other service options for all customized Craft products will be maintained for 2 (two) years after the final sale of such products.
Section III:
(a) This warranty applies only to hardware products customized or manufactured by Craft that can be identified by the Craft trademark, trade name, or logo affixed to them. Craft provides no warranty whatsoever for any software provided with its products; such software is warranted separately by their manufacturers. Craft does not warrant any hardware products that are not Craft products. This warranty does not apply if the product has been modified without written permission of Craft or if a Craft serial number has been removed or defaced. Product modification includes, but is not limited to unauthorized alteration of the hardware that may involve removal of case components. The Craft dead pixel policy with regards to a LCD or Plasma display requires a minimum of two dead or stuck pixels to qualify for warranty repair service. This warranty does not apply to damage caused by third party products used in conjunction with a Craft product; acts of nature, a loss of product functionality caused by accidental damage, cosmetic damages, or any faults potentially caused by the services of a non Craft representative. Such damages are not covered by this warranty and any related repairs will be at cost to the customer.
(b) Craft guarantees that proper use of Craft branded soft cases, handles or other accessories will not cause any staining, discoloring or damage to the high gloss or matte finishes applied to our products. Such cases or other enclosures are not meant to protect products from being dropped, crushed, struck or otherwise physically damaged. Craft cannot be held responsible for any such damages under the terms of this warranty.
Section IV:
Only Craft is authorized to make any modifications, extensions or additions to this warranty and reserves the right to make changes without advance notice (a current version of the warranty is available on the Craft website). Craft is not responsible for special, incidental, or consequential damages resulting from any breach of warranty, or under legal theory, including but not limited to lost profits, downtime, goodwill damages to or replacement of equipment and property and any costs of recovering, reprogramming or reproducing any program or data stored in or used with Craft products. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or exclusions of implied warranties, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. The warranty and remedies set forth above are exclusive and in lieu of all others, whether oral or written, expressed or implied. Craft specifically disclaims any and all implied warranties, including, without limitation, warranties or merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.
