Creative offers to you that the hardware will be free from material defects ("Defect") in workmanship and material under normal use for a period of twenty-four (24) months for the X-Fi Sonic Carrier and twelve (12) months for all other products from the date of retail purchase by original end-user purchaser ("Warranty Period").
During the Warranty Period, if a Defect arises and a valid claim is received within the Warranty Period, Creative will repair the hardware defect at no charge using new or refurbished replacement parts. This limited warranty covers the replacement of the hardware only. When a product or part is exchanged, any replacement item becomes your property and the replaced item becomes Creative's property.
The warranty period will be extended by each whole day that the product is out of your possession for repair under this warranty. Creative warrants that the repaired or replaced parts will be free from material defects in material and workmanship for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of repair or replacement, or for the remainder of the Warranty Period, whichever is greater.
To obtain the fastest, most appropriate service for your Creative Product, you should make use of Creative's Worldwide Support site's online resources to diagnose and attempt to resolve the problem there.
If you have confirmed that your product requires a warranty service, you can submit a technical support request directly to Creative or return to your retailer for warranty service.
Any exchange that is shipped to countries outside of the U.S. may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country ("Import Fees"). The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such Import Fees which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient.
