About Axiom Product Warranties

Axiom provides a non-transferable warranty to the purchaser of Axiom hardware product purchased from an authorized Axiom reseller. Axiom warrants to the end user, that this product, excluding content and or software supplied with or on the product, will be free from material defects in manufacture, will conform to Axiom’s published product specifications and be fit for normal use during the Warranty Period specified on the warranty page commencing on the date of purchase provided that the product is legally placed on the market. The warranty period will vary by specific product, as identified in your user documentation, on the product package, or as listed in the attached listing of Axiom Warranty Periods. In the event any of these warranty periods differ, the longest specified warranty period will apply.

Axiom will, at its option, either repair or replace any part of its products that prove defective by reason of improper workmanship or materials. Axiom may at its option repair this product or provide you with an equivalent product; and if unable to repair or replace the product, will refund the purchase price. Axiom will also require that the defective warranted product be received before a replacement product or RMA is issued.

Axiom will not be liable for indirect or consequential damage (including loss of data), or for damage caused by improper use (including use in an incompatible device and use not in accordance with the instructions), or by improper installation, unprofessional repair, modification or accident. This constitutes Axiom’s entire liability which will never exceed the price you paid for it, plus the necessary costs you made for the warranty claim. Axiom products must not be used in applications where failure could threaten injury or life, such as life support systems.

National, state and local laws may grant you other rights that are not affected by this warranty.

Warranty Limitations and Exclusions

Axiom does not warrant that the Product will be free from non-substantial design defects or errors. Further, this Limited Warranty does NOT cover: (1) any costs associated with the repair or replacement of the Product including labor, installation or other costs incurred by the Buyer, and in particular, any costs relating to the removal or replacement of any Product that is affixed to another device; or (2) damage to the Product due to external causes, including accident, problems with electrical power, abnormal electrical, mechanical or environmental conditions, usage not in accordance with Product instructions, misuse, neglect, alteration, repair, improper installation, or improper testing; or (3) any Product which has been modified or operated outside of Axiom’s specifications or where the original identification markings (trademark or serial number) has been removed, altered or obliterated from the Product.

THIS LIMITED WARRANTY REPLACES ALL OTHER WARRANTIES FOR THE PRODUCT AND AXIOM DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NONINFRINGEMENT, COURSE OF DEALING AND USAGE OF TRADE. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties so this limitation may not apply to purchasers in those jurisdictions. ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE LIMITED WARRANTY PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so this limitation may not apply to purchasers in those or jurisdictions.



Axiom’s Products are not authorized for use as critical components in life support devices or systems without the express written approval of an officer of Axiom. As used herein: (1) life support devices or systems are devices which (a) are intended for surgical implant into the body, or (b) directly support or sustain life or whose failure to perform when properly used can be reasonably expected to result in significant injury to the user; and (2) a critical component is any component in a life support device or system whose failure to perform can be reasonably expected to cause the failure of the life support device or system or to affect its safety or effectiveness.

How Axiom Doesn’t Void OEM Warranties

It is commonly believed and there have been reported incidents where networking, storage, and computer system manufacturers, have informed customers that if third-party products or upgrades are being used in the system manufacturer's hardware application, the warranty for that system would be voided. The truth is, no third-party product voids the original system warranty, and in addition to anti-trust laws, it violates the Magnuson-Moss Act to coerce any consumer with this tactic. Regardless if the pressure or coercion is directed through a distributor or reseller, any tie-in provision that forces the consumer to purchase a manufacturer's own equipment or brand, whether the consumer didn't want to buy the product at all, or preferred to purchase the product elsewhere under different terms, U.S. laws are being violated.

Axiom products are compatible with your system's warranty.

From a legal standpoint, this type of sales-tactic is referred to as a "tie-in sales provision." In general, these kinds of provisions are illegal. Per section 102(c) of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975 (15 United States Code section 2302(c)) these types of sales tactics are prohibited in the consumer market. Sections 1 and 2 of the Sherman Antitrust Act (15 United States Code sections 1 and 2) states that these types of activities can be considered violations as well.

The Federal Trade Commission's Magnuson-Moss Act protects consumers to purchase 'The OEM Alternative'.

What does this mean to you?

You cannot be required to add the Manufacturer's memory, hard drive, or other OEM branded upgrade or accessory to maintain the warranty on the system. Also, the OEM Manufacturer cannot state that the system warranty is void if other brands (third-party) are used.

For example: If you purchased a Proliant ML 370 Server and chose to install Axiom Upgrades, or any third-party manufacturer memory for that matter, HP cannot void the warranty or refuse to provide service on your computer.
