Warranty Policy

HDL warrants for the duration of the warranty period (as defined below), that each item will exhibit a condition of material and workmanship that it will maintain the integrity and reliability of the item in the specified service environment and meet the form, fit, and functional requirements as they are explicitly specified in the contract with the end user (the prime contract) under which the delivery order is issued.  Such requirements including standards which have not been cancelled apply as defined in the prime contract under which this delivery order is issued at the time of shipment. HDL warrants that it shall repair or replace, at its sole option, all items which fail to meet this condition during the warranty period which are returned to the HDL facility and HDL shall arrange and pay for return freight. The warranty shall not apply to items which have been subjected to customer abuse or misuse. The warranty shall be voided by unauthorized access to the item or evidence or product tampering which includes breaking and/or removing the product seal(s), disassembling any part of the item, and/or altering the item from its originally delivered condition.

HDL warrants that the item(s) delivered will be new as defined in FAR 52.211-5, and free of counterfeit materials.

Warranty Period

The warranty period shall begin on the shipping date plus fifteen (15) days transit time, and shall end twelve (12) months thereafter. The warranty entitlement shall enure to the benefit of both Buyer and Buyer's customers.
