Hardware induced Defects are fixed by repair or replacement of the faulty parts or the whole hardware device. Commsignia reserves the right to provide a newer model as a replacement hardware in case the faulty device is out of production.
Such Hardware warranty is provided as set out in this Policy.

2.4. Scope of Technical Support

Troubleshooting can proceed if the latest public release or the preceeding public release of the software is used. In other cases, the Customer is asked to upgrade to either of those versions.
Commsignia undertakes to fix software defects effecting the latest public release of the software.
During troubleshooting, the Customer might be asked to upgrade to latest public release of the software to reproduce the problem symptoms. If those symptoms do not occur on the latest public release version of the software, the defect is considered fixed, and the Problem ticket is closed.
Security vulnerabilities are fixed in the next public release of the software and not back ported automatically to preceeding versions.

2.5. Workflow for Technical Support Problems

  1. The Customer reports a Problem via the Support portal and provides all relevant and available information, including the Severity and serial nr of the device(s) experiencing the problem.
  2. The Support Team responds within the Response Time specified by the applicable Support Package and the approved Severity level.
  3. In case of a Critical Severity Problem, the primary aim is to provide a Workaround to reduce the impact on operation. Once a Workaround is provided, the Severity is reduced to Medium.
  4. The Support Team may request further data and perform analysis to decide whether the root cause is a Defect or not. Severity can be lowered in case the necessary data is not provided within Response Time determined by the Severity and the Support Package. In case the requested data is not provided within a week, the Problem ticket may be closed.
  5. In case the Support Team determines that the root cause of the reported Problem is not a Defect, the Problem ticket is closed.
  6. In case of a software-related Defect, the Support Team files a bug report and provides the reference number and expected timeline of the fix to the Customer. The Problem ticket is closed and the Customer is notified when the release containing the fix is published.
  7. In case of a probable hardware-related Defect, the Support Team may instruct the Customer to open an RMA ticket via the Support Portal, providing shipping and contact information. The Problem ticket is kept open until the RMA process is concluded (see 2.5 iii.).
2.6. RMA process

  1. Once the RMA ticket is filled in with device serials and shipping and contact details, the Support Team organizes the shipment of the device to Commsignia premises.
  2. The Support Team examines the device for Defects.

    1. If the result of the examination is that Commsignia is responsible for the Defect, Commsignia will, at its sole option, repair or replace (with a new or refurbished replacement Product) any components that fail in normal use or refund the purchase price of the Product. Such repairs or replacement will be made at no charge to the Customer for parts or labor, provided that the Customer shall be responsible for the incurred transportation cost.

      Repairs have a 90-day warranty. If the Product sent in is still under its original warranty, then the new warranty is 90 days or to the end of the original one-year warranty, depending upon which is longer.
    2. If the result of the examination is that the defect is not covered by warranty, the Customer is provided with a quotation for the repair and the shipping costs separately.
      • In case the Customer decides to order the repair work, the device is repaired and sent back to the Customer. The Customer is invoiced for the repair and the shipping costs.
      • In case the repair is not ordered, the device is sent back and the Customer is invoiced for the shipping costs.
