Warranty and Shield Terms and Conditions

EXTENDED WARRANTY BASIC COVERAGE

GSA Pte Ltd (the "Company") provides to the original end-user purchaser ("you" or the "Purchaser") a twenty-four (24) months extended service warranty for the devices purchased from the Company against manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship.

This warranty is only valid for two (2) years that begins one (1) year from the original date of purchase of Chromebook/Chromebox products purchased from the Company.

If the product is found to be defective as a result of manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship during the warranty period, the Company will, at its sole discretion, repair or replace the product, at no charge as stipulated herein, with new or reconditioned parts or a functionally equivalent product, or provide a refund of the purchase price of the product, less the product's depreciated value, only if the Company is unable to replace the product or repair it in accordance with applicable law.

All replaced parts and products, and products for which a refund is provided, become the property of the Company and must be returned to the Company free of any third-party ownership claims after you receive the replacement parts or products (or refund, if applicable).

Replacement parts and products will be new or serviceably used, comparable in function and performance to the original parts. Replacement parts and products (not including device batteries) are warranted for the remainder of the original warranty period or thirty (30) days after they are sent to you whichever is later.

Replacement device batteries are warranted for the remainder of the one (1) year warranty period that begins from the original date of purchase of the device or thirty (30) days after they are sent to you whichever is later.

OBTAINING WARRANTY SERVICE

Warranty service can only be performed by the Company and its appointed service workshop(s) (the "Technician"). The Company will not reimburse for any service performed by others. The original dated bill of sale, or a substitute proof of purchase acceptable at the sole option of the Company in accordance with applicable law, must be presented upon request as proof of purchase.

If return of the product is required, you must send the product to the Company unless you purchased onsite warranty support, in which case you need to refer to Onsite Warranty Support section below. The Company will notify you when the product is ready for collection.

You are responsible for backing up all system and applications software and data and disabling any security passwords before services are performed, removing any data before parts or products are returned, and for reinstalling all software, data and passwords. THE COMPANY SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR THE LOSS OR DESTRUCTION OF DATA OR APPLICATION RESULTING FROM THE USE OR SERVICE OF THIS PRODUCT.

CHROMEBOOK SHIELD

The Company provides to you a thirty-six (36) months add-on Chromebook Shield (the "Shield") for the devices purchased from the Company.

The Shield is only valid for three (3) years from the original date of purchase of Chromebook/Chromebox products purchased from the Company.

The Shield covers damages resulting from fire1, vandalism2, lightning, power surges (leading to fire), and accident3 (e.g. water spillage, drop, etc.)

1 Incidents of fire not caused by or resulting directly due to owners' action.
2 Criminal damage such as graffiti and defacement directed by persons without permission of the owner.
3 Incidental and unplanned event or circumstance leading to the damage of device not caused by or resulting directly due to owners' action, misuse or negligence.

A tiered excess is applicable for repair claims of the device:

  1. excess of S$80 for repair claims up to S$300
  2. excess of S$160 for replacement of device and/or repair claims greater than S$300

The Company has the absolute discretion to decide on the replacement or repair of the device under the Shield upon diagnosis of the fault.

The Shield will lapse immediately in the event of either:

  1. two (2) valid repairs, or
  2. one (1) valid replacement claim

whichever takes place earlier.

The Shield Coverage does not cover the recovery nor preservation of any files or applications on the device. The Company and the Technician bear no responsibilities for the loss of any files or applications on the device.
