What to do Before Obtaining After-sales Service

  • Fluidity will provide a Return Material Authorization Number (“RMA”) and shipping instructions.
  • Safely pack and mail all original contents, including accessories, to the address provided in the shipping instructions. Additionally, include RMA reference with your return package, both on shipping label description, if applicable, and inside the box.
  • Once received, Fluidity will review and respond to initial service request with service alternatives.

Product and Part Replacement

When after-sales service involves the replacement of a product or part, the replaced product or part becomes Fluidity’s property and the replacement product or part becomes your property.  Only unaltered Fluidity products and parts are eligible for replacement.  Replacement products or parts provided by Fluidity may not be new, but they will be in good working order and at least functionally equivalent to the original product or part’s warranty.  A replacement product or part shall be covered for the time remaining in the original product’s warranty.

Use of Personal Contact Information and Data

If you obtain service under this policy, you authorize Fluidity to store, use, and process your product’s log information and your contact information, including name, phone numbers, address, and e-mail address.  You agree and understand that it is necessary for Fluidity to collect, process and use your data to perform service under this policy.  We may contact you to inquire about your satisfaction with our service or to notify you about any product recalls or safety issues.  Fluidity may request your authorization to access, use and process the data that is stored in your product when you decide to apply for after-sales service.  If you refuse to do so, Fluidity may not be able to provide certain after-sales service to you.  To achieve these aims, you authorize Fluidity to transfer your information to any country where we do business and to provide it to entities acting on our behalf.  We may also disclose your information where required by law.  Fluidity’s privacy policy will govern the usage of data that you provide and is available at https://fluidity.tech/privacy-policy/.

Essential Information

  • You are responsible for shipping costs when sending product(s) for return, repair or replacement.
  • Fluidity will examine the returned product(s) to identify the problem.  If the problem qualifies for service under this policy, Fluidity will bear the cost for refund, replacement, or repair and return the product(s) at our cost to you.
  • If Fluidity determines that the issue in question is not covered by this Fluidity After-Sales Policy, Fluidity will return the product(s) with you burdening the cost of return shipping.
  • Please note that the products and components presented for warranty repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired.  These refurbished goods have been tested and are similar to brand new goods in function and appearance.  If any refurbished parts or units do not meet our quality assurance requirements, brand new parts or units will be issued.  Any replaced parts may come with different serial numbers.
  • Please be aware that where a product is capable of retaining user-generated data, such data may be lost during the repair process.  We therefore recommend that you back up your data prior to any repair.
  • Please note that products are covered under warranty only if they are purchased from Fluidity directly or authorized dealers.
  • To guarantee your legal rights, please check whether your product is intact (check whether any damage has occurred to your product during transportation) upon delivery.  If the product has a defect, please report it to us within fifteen (15) days of delivery; or it will be deemed that the product you received is intact and fully functional.
