HARDWARE: 3Com warrants to the end user ("Customer") that this hardware product will be substantially free from material defects in workmanship and materials, under normal use and service, for the following length of time from the date of purchase from 3Com or its authorized reseller:
3 Year Limited
3Com's sole obligation under this express warranty shall be, at 3Com's option and expense, to repair the defective product or part, deliver to Customer an equivalent product or part to replace the defective item, or if neither of the two foregoing options is reasonably available, refund to Customer the purchase price paid for the defective product. All products that are replaced will become the property of 3Com. Replacement products or parts may be new or reconditioned. 3Com warrants any replaced or repaired product or part for ninety (90) days from shipment, or the remainder of the initial warranty period, whichever is longer.
SOFTWARE: 3Com warrants to Customer that each software program licensed from it, except as noted below, will, if operated as directed in the user documentation, substantially achieve the functionality described in the user documentation for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of purchase from 3Com or its authorized reseller. No updates or upgrades are provided under this warranty. 3Com's sole obligation under this express warranty shall be, at 3Com's option and expense, to refund the purchase price for the software product or replace the software product with software which meets the requirements of this warranty as described above. Customer assumes responsibility for the selection of the appropriate programs and associated reference materials.
3Com makes no warranty or representation that its software products will meet Customer's requirements or work in combination with any hardware or software products provided by third parties, that the operation of the software products will be uninterrupted or error free, or that all defects in the software products will be corrected. For any third party products listed in the 3Com software product documentation or specifications as being compatible, 3Com will make reasonable efforts to provide compatibility, except where the non-compatibility is caused by a "bug" or defect in the third party's product or from use of the software product not in accordance with 3Com's published specifications or user manual.
THIS 3COM PRODUCT MAY INCLUDE OR BE BUNDLED WITH THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE. THE WARRANTY PROVISIONS OF THIS DOCUMENT DO NOT APPLY TO SUCH THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE. IF A SEPARATE END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT HAS BEEN PROVIDED FOR SUCH THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE, USE OF THAT SOFTWARE WILL BE GOVERNED BY THAT AGREEMENT. FOR ANY APPLICABLE WARRANTY, PLEASE REFER TO THE END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT GOVERNING THE USE OF THAT SOFTWARE.
OBTAINING WARRANTY SERVICE: Customer must contact a 3Com Corporate Service Center or an Authorized 3Com Service Center within the applicable warranty period to obtain warranty service authorization. Dated proof of purchase from 3Com or its authorized reseller may be required. A User Service Order (USO), Return Material Authorization (RMA) or Service Repair Order (SRO) number will be issued. This number must be marked on the outside of the package sent to 3Com's Corporate Service Center. The product must be packaged appropriately for safe shipment and sent prepaid. It is recommended that returned products be insured or sent by a method that provides for tracking of the package. Responsibility for loss or damage does not transfer to 3Com until the returned item is received by 3Com. 3Com will retain risk of loss or damage until the item is delivered to Customer. For non-US Customers, the word 'prepaid' shall be omitted where this requirement is not permitted by law. The allocation of responsibility for loss or damage stated shall be subject to any mandatory legal requirements.
3Com shall not be responsible for any software, firmware, information, or memory data of Customer contained in, stored on, or integrated with any products returned to 3Com for repair, whether under warranty or not.

Some countries, states, or provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of implied warranties or the limitation of incidental or consequential damages for certain products supplied to consumers, or the limitation of liability for death or personal injury, so the above limitations and exclusions may be limited in their application to you. When the implied warranties are not allowed to be excluded in their entirety, they will be limited to the duration of the applicable written warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights which may vary depending on local law.
GOVERNING LAW: This Limited Warranty shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, U.S.A., and by the laws of the United States, excluding their conflicts of laws principles. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is hereby excluded in its entirety from application to this Limited Warranty.
