Warranty Scope:

Warranties generally include a remote technical support during business hours (“BHS” as defined below) for a limited period as set out below and software updates, but exclude any of the additional benefits that are available to customers that enter into a separate service support contract. Warranties as described in this document do not apply to third party hardware or software that Ruijie Networks may provide in combination with or as part of the Products. Such third-party hardware*2 and software*3 may however be covered by such third party’s warranty terms.

Unless otherwise agreed, warranty rights are not transferable, i.e., they apply only to the original End Customer.

A warranty is available during a specific time period (the “Warranty Period”) commencing from the Warranty Start Date.
