(i) The Equipment is warranted by CenturyLink to the person originally purchasing or leasing the Equipment, and no others, to be free of manufacturing defects:
(A) during the term of the Equipment lease, only (for Equipment leased from CenturyLink); and
(B) for a period of 30 days from the date of Equipment purchase from CenturyLink ("Warranty Term"). Equipment you purchase may be eligible for additional warranty coverage from the manufacturer of that Equipment and you should review the materials included with that Equipment or contact the Equipment manufacturer for further information.
(ii) This Limited warranty covers only the basic operations of the equipment, and CenturyLink does not warrant the compatibility of the Equipment with any computer, operating system, or networking equipment, nor does this Limited Warranty cover any defect present in any computer, network, operating, or other system. If the Equipment malfunctions due to a manufacturing defect before the Warranty Term expires, CenturyLink will replace or repair it, at its option, without charge, so long as
(A) you notify us by contacting us as set forth in Section 14(a)(vi) below, report that the Equipment's basic operations are not functioning properly, and cooperate with the CenturyLink representative to evaluate the circumstances;
(B) the date you so notify us is within the Warranty Term specified above; and
(C) you promptly return the Equipment according to the procedure specified in Section 12(c), if CenturyLink requires you to return the Equipment. CenturyLink will:
(1) replace or repair the Equipment, at its option, and return the replacement or repaired Equipment to you, within thirty (30) days after you comply with (A) through (C), above;
(2) provide you with an expedited option whereby we will send you a replacement Equipment promptly after you comply with (A) and (B); provided that, prior to sending you such replacement Equipment, we may charge you, via a credit card that we accept or other means CenturyLink chooses, for the full retail cost of the replacement Equipment ("Advance Charge"). If you return your defective Equipment to us according to procedure specified in Section 12(c), if CenturyLink requires you to return the Equipment, and we receive your defective Equipment on or before the 30th day after you request a replacement Equipment pursuant to this Limited Warranty, we will credit back the Advance Charge to the same payment method to which the Advance Charge was applied (e.g., credit card) or to your monthly service bill; or
(3) such other option that you and CenturyLink may agree to. No other person or party is authorized to provide repair or replacement service pursuant to this Limited Warranty.
(iii) Repaired/replacement equipment.
CenturyLink may use new or reconditioned parts to repair the Equipment, or replace the Equipment with new, repaired, or reconditioned Equipment, all at CenturyLink's sole discretion. This Limited Warranty will apply to the replaced or repaired Equipment, for ninety (90) days or until the end of the warranty period set forth herein, whichever is longer. All replaced products or parts become the property of CenturyLink and will not be returned.
(iv) Exceptions and exclusions.
This Limited Warranty does not cover defects due to defacement, misuse, abuse, neglect, improper use, improper electrical voltages or current, repairs by others, alterations, modifications, accidents, fire, flood, vandalism, acts of God or the elements. No advice or information given by CenturyLink, its affiliates, its contractors, or their respective employees will vary the terms of the Limited Warranty. You agree that CenturyLink are not responsible for any damages that may occur if your relationship with your Internet service provider causes interference or interruption with the Service. If such actions cause your Service not to work correctly, you will still be billed by CenturyLink for the Service and CenturyLink will not issue credits for such incidents. Service may not be compatible with communications equipment or services at your physical location that are not associated with the Service, including security services, fax machines, satellite systems, monitored medical device alert, alarm, or assistance systems, and CenturyLink are not responsible in any way for such incompatibility or any problems or losses of any type related to that equipment or services.
(v) No other express warranties and limitation of implied warranties. This Limited Warranty is the only express warranty extended by CenturyLink in connection with the Equipment. Implied warranties which may not be disclaimed are limited in time to the duration of this Limited Warranty, and all remedies for all such implied warranties are restricted to the remedy and procedure set forth for this Limited Warranty. This Limited Warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, however arising, and all such other warranties are hereby disclaimed. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
