Please email with any warranty questions before returning products. You will be given instructions specific to the product and authorization to return. Warranty replacement procedures may require some diagnostic or testing steps, the customer agrees to carry out reasonable testing to identify whether products are in fact defective. If the buyer does not co-operate in testing, a fee will be assessed for testing of the products once they are returned. Non defective returns are subject to restocking charges. Other than our 10 day memory DOA policy (below) Warranty shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer. Un-authorized packages and freight-collect packages will be refused. Consult your computer owner's manual for installation instructions. Do not use tools such as pliers on RAM modules. Warranty coverage excludes any damage done by customer. All warranties are voided by modification to or abuse, damage or alteration of the product. Returned goods with damage (including freight damage from inadquate customer packaging) will not be accepted for refund or warranty and will be charged at full price. Warranty terms are for replacement by new or recertified equivalent product, not for refund or credit. In the case of an advance exchange, if the returned parts are not received at CanadaRAM within 15 days, the customer agrees to pay the full price for the replacement memory.
