Cinegears Limited Warranty
WARRANTY POLICY & INSTRUCTIONS
Please refer to the product information to see specific warranty durations and terms. Peripheral items (e.g., power cables, mounting brackets) are not covered under warranty.
All warranty service requests must be initiated with the completion of our RMA form found at www.cinegears.com/RMA. After completing the RMA form, a Cine Gears associate will contact you within 3 business days with further instructions. Returns must abide by all of the instructions listed on the RMA form, and the auto-generated RMA-form response. Failure to do so may result in your return not being received or processed by our team.
After our team contacts you, take care to pack your return item carefully. Ensure that you use a trackable shipping service, and ensure that you send the tracking information to our team. We can not be responsible for lost packages, or damage incurred during shipping.
Warranty repairs will be addressed in the order received, within the capacity of our technician staff. We can not guarantee a timeframe of repair services prior to our technicians assessing your equipment. Our goal is to repair your equipment within 1-3 weeks. In some cases, this may be up to or exceeding 4 weeks. International warranty repairs may also exceed 1-3 weeks. Our technical staff does not work during national holidays, so this may factor in to repair timeframes as well. Cinegears products are manufactured and/or assembled in the People’s Republic of China. Repairs sent to and/or returned to you from China may be subject to customs/duties fees. These fees are your sole responsibility and Cinegears is not liable for any additional charges incurred by international customs/duties.

LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS
This Limited Warranty applies only to the Product manufactured by or for Cinegears that can be identified by the “Cinegears” trademark, trade name, or logo affixed to it. The Limited Warranty does not apply to any (a) Cinegears products and services other than the Product, (b) non-Cinegears hardware product, (c) consumables (such as batteries), or (d) software, even if packaged or sold with the Product or embedded in the Product. Refer to the licenses accompanying the software for details of your rights with respect to its use. Our warranty does not apply to peripheral items that are purchased individually or are included with packages. These items include, but are not limited to, cables, mounting brackets and straps, antennas, and marking disks. Issues with items that are covered by warranty which are due to issues outside of workmanship (e.g., standard wear and tear, physical damage or abuse, liquid contact, fire, power surge, or other outside issues) are not covered by warranty.
This Limited Warranty does not cover the cost of returning the Product to Cinegears; this is your responsibility.
No Cinegears reseller, agent, or employee is authorized to make any modification, extension, or addition to this Limited Warranty. If any term is held to be illegal or unenforceable, the legality or enforceability of the remaining terms shall not be affected or impaired. Please refer to Cinegears’s Terms & Conditions for more information on Limited Warranty.
Cinegears’s obligations under this warranty and the sole remedy for its breach are limited to repair, of any part or parts of its products which prove to be defective; or, in its sole discretion, replacement of such products. All returns of defective parts or products must include the product model number and serial number and must be made through the RMA form found on the Cinegears website (https://cinegears.com/rma/). Authorized returns must be shipped prepaid. The warranty provided herein does not cover charges for labor or other costs incurred in the troubleshooting, repair, removal, installation, service, or handling of parts or complete products.
All claims under the warranty provided herein must be made within thirty (30) days from the date of discovery of the defect. Failure to notify Cinegears of a warranted defect within thirty (30) days of its discovery voids Cinegears’s obligations hereunder.
The warranty provided herein shall be void and of no effect in the event that (a) the product has been operated outside its intended application; (b) the product has been subjected to misuse, neglect, accident, improper or inadequate maintenance, corrosive environments, environments containing airborne contaminants (silicone, aluminum oxide, etc.), or excessive thermal shock; (c) unauthorized modifications are made to the product; (d) the product is not installed or operated in compliance with the manufacturer’s printed instructions; (e) the product is not installed and operated in compliance with applicable building, mechanical, plumbing and electrical codes; or (f) the serial number of the product has been altered, defaced or removed.
You acknowledge that the Product is not fault tolerant and is not designed, manufactured, or intended for use or resale as control equipment in hazardous or high risk environments and activities requiring fail-safe performance (such as in the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or communication systems, air traffic control, direct life support machines, or weapons systems) in which the failure of the Product could lead directly to death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental damage. You agree not to use or allow the use of the Product or any portion thereof for, or in connection with, any such environment or activity.
The warranty provided herein is for repair or replacement only. Cinegears shall not be liable for any loss, cost, damage, or expense of any kind arising out of a breach of the warranty or of the sale. Further, Cinegears shall not be liable for any incidental, consequential, exemplary, special, or punitive damages, nor for any loss of revenue, profit or use, arising out of a breach of this warranty or in connection with the sale, delivery, maintenance, use, operation or repair of any Cinegears product. In no event will Cinegears be liable for any amount greater than the purchase price of a defective product. The disclaimers of liability included in this Paragraph shall remain in effect and shall continue to be enforceable in the event that any remedy herein shall fail of its essential purpose. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
THIS WARRANTY IS THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE WARRANTY FOR CINEGEARS’ PRODUCTS AND IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES. CINE GEARS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
