Limited Warranty

QNAP warrants its products against defects in material and workmanship. Under normal use and service, every hardware portion of the products will be free from physical defects in material and workmanship during the warranty period, or the product will be repaired or replaced as determined solely by QNAP. QNAP provides a limited warranty for its products only to the person or entity that originally purchased the product from QNAP or its authorized distributor or retailer. QNAP's products are diskless devices, and QNAP makes no warranty of the hard disk installed, or warranty on compatibility of all hard disks and peripheral devices. QNAP will not be liable in any way for the loss of data stored on QNAP products and any damage caused by this.

The following standard warranty rules apply to QNAP products:

Extra warranty period might be provided by QNAP's worldwide dealers/distributors. Please contact your dealer/distributor for the local warranty period. Extended warranty may be offered with extra payment in some countries.

If a product does not operate as warranted above during the applicable warranty period, QNAP shall, at its option and expense (except for shipping cost), repair the defective product or part, deliver to the customer an equivalent product or part to replace the defective item. All products that are replaced will become the property of QNAP. Replacement products may be new or reconditioned.

Warranty does not apply, if

  1. The warranty period is expired,
  2. The warranty label is broken or removed,
  3. The serial number label is missing or unrecognizable,
  4. The product has been modified or repaired by any unauthorized service center or personnel,
  5. The defect was subject to abuse, improper use not conforming to product manual instructions, or environment conditions more severe than those specified in the manual and specification.
  6. The defect was subject to Force Majeure, such as acts of God, flood, lighting, earthquake, war, vandalism, theft, brownouts or sags (damage due to low voltage disturbances)

If the customer's product is not covered under warranty, QNAP may offer Repair Services under the customer's payment.

Repair Service

Warranty and out of warranty service should be obtained by contacting the system integrator/dealer/retailer/e-retailer or distributor where the customer purchased the product. When requesting for service, the proof of purchase and the product serial number must be provided. The return of the defective product should be strictly through the original route of purchase, and the customers shall pack the product appropriately to prevent the returned product from suffering in the transportation.

There are no user serviceable parts inside the product. Do not allow any unauthorized service center or personnel to repair or modify the product. If the original channel is no longer in business or unavailable, the customer may contact QNAP Technical Support for international RMA services. In this case, the customer will be charged for handling fee, $50 (USD), and all fees incurred, including two ways freight, duties, taxes and brokerage fee.

It is customer's sole responsibility to back up his/ her data. Before allowing any service from QNAP or its service provider, including remote login check and repairing service, the customer must back up the data and remove any of the customer's confidential, proprietary or personal information. Neither QNAP nor its service provider will be liable for any damage, loss and exposure of confidential or private information or data contained in any product, hardware, software or media.
