Satcom Direct, Inc., its corporate parents, affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, “SD”) warrants that your new Satcom Direct-branded hardware (the “Equipment”) shall be free of defects in material and workmanship for a period of twentyfour (24) months from the date of shipment from SD to receiver (the “Shipment Date”). Receiver includes, but is not limited to, an SD authorized dealer, an end-customer, a maintenance repair organization, and aircraft original equipment manufacturer.
For new SD internet connectivity Equipment, which means the Satcom Direct Router (“SDR”) and Satcom Direct Router Gateway (“SDR Gateway”) (the “Internet Equipment”), the warranty period shall be forty-eight (48) months from the Shipment Date, so long as you maintain all satellite internet services (>= 200 kbps) that are compatible with the Internet

Premium Bundle Warranty.
Internet Equipment, WiFi Hub, LTE Hub, and WiFi Hub 2.0 for Premium Bundle customers is warranted from the Shipment Date and the warranty shall continue for the duration of your contract term for Internet Services with SD, as long as you maintain the Premium Bundle. If you downgrade from a Premium Bundle, the Premium Bundle Warranty shall revert to the Extended Warranty, or Limited Warranty, as applicable.
Warranty for Refurbished or Replacement Equipment
Refurbished or replacement Equipment shall be warranted for the longer of (i) the remaining warranty period of the original Equipment; or (ii) a period of twelve (12) months from the Shipment Date of the replacement or refurbished Equipment, whichever period provides longer coverage for you.
Under the above warranties (“Warranty”), SD shall, at its sole option and expense, repair, replace, or refund the purchase price of any Equipment found to be defective during the applicable warranty period, provided that SD is notified of the defect as soon as practicable and in any event within thirty (30) days of discovery of such defect. Where appropriate,
defective Equipment shall be returned to SD’s premises at your expense, subject to SD’s prior approval. Repaired or replaced Equipment shall be shipped to you at SD’s expense. When Equipment is exchanged, the replacement Equipment becomes the end-user’s property and the replaced Equipment becomes SD’s property. In no event shall SD’s liability
exceed the purchase price actually paid for the Equipment.

Please have the serial number of the Equipment available when contacting SD’s Technical Support to determine whether the
Equipment is still within the warranty period. SD’s Technical Support will help you determine whether the Equipment requires service and, if it does, will inform you how SD will provide it. You must assist in diagnosing issues with the Equipment and follow SD’s warranty processes. SD may, at its sole option, provide warranty service (i) at an SD authorized
dealer’s location, (ii) by having you ship the Equipment to SD’s repair service location, or (iii) by SD sending you new or refurbished customer-installable replacement Equipment or parts to enable you to service or exchange the Equipment. When providing replacement service requiring the return of the original Equipment or parts, SD may require a purchase
order as security for the retail price of the replacement Equipment or part and applicable shipping costs. If you fail to return the Equipment as instructed, SD will issue an invoice against the purchase order. Service options, parts availability, and response times may vary.
If the Equipment is capable of storing software, data and other information, you are responsible for protecting its contents against possible operational failures and data losses, and SD expressly disclaims any liability therefore. Before delivering the Equipment for warranty service, it is your responsibility to keep a separate backup copy of the contents and disable any applicable security passwords. THE CONTENTS OF THE EQUIPMENT WILL BE DELETED, AND THE STORAGE MEDIA REFORMATTED IN THE COURSE OF WARRANTY SERVICE. The Equipment will be returned to you configured as originally purchased, without any user data, subject only to applicable SD software updates. You will be responsible for reinstalling and reconfiguring all user data, settings, and passwords. Recovery and reconfiguration of user data are not covered under the Warranty.
