Unless there is an agreement in place between Lenovo and Customer, this Agreement, including associated warranty statements, license agreements, and any applicable attachments, is the sole and complete agreement between Customer and Lenovo regarding the Products or Services purchased hereunder.  Any additional or different terms in any order or communication from Customer shall not be binding on Lenovo unless signed by an authorized representative of Lenovo.   

Customer accepts the terms of this Agreement by clicking to accept these terms when ordering online or, when ordering by any other means, by opening the package containing the product.  A Product or Service becomes subject to this Agreement when Lenovo accepts Customer’s order by shipping the hardware Product or making the software Product available to Customer; or providing the Service.  Confirmation of receipt of Customer’s order shall not mean Lenovo has accepted Customer’s order.   

 

1. Definitions 

1.1 Product shall mean any Lenovo branded or third party hardware or software that Lenovo provides to Customer under this Agreement.  Hardware products include computers and accessories.  Software products include computer software programs (whether pre-loaded or provided separately) and related licensed materials such as documentation.

1.2 Service is the performance of a task; provision of advice or assistance; or access to a resource such as access to an information data base that Lenovo makes available to Customer.

 

2. Prices and Payment 

2.1 Except for credit or debit card transactions, or if not paid in advance of shipment, payment is due upon receipt of invoice.  Any amounts not received by Lenovo within thirty (30) days of receipt of invoice shall be overdue.  Customer shall pay a late payment fee of the lesser of one and one half (1.5%) percent per month or the maximum rate permitted by law on the undisputed overdue balance of the invoice amount. Customer shall pay any applicable sales, use or similar taxes, fees or duties unless Customer provides exemption documentation to Lenovo.  Customer is responsible for taxes, if any, on Products from the date Lenovo ships them to Customer or on Services, on the date the Services are provided by Lenovo.  No other discounts, quantity entitlements, or promotions apply unless agreed in writing by Lenovo.    Delivery charges, if applicable, will be as specified in an invoice.

2.2  If Lenovo makes an error in pricing information, Lenovo may nevertheless refuse or cancel an order placed for a Product or Service quoted at such price, even if Lenovo has confirmed the receipt of Customer’s order or charged Customer’s credit or debit card.  If Lenovo has charged Customer’s credit or debit card, Lenovo will promptly issue a credit to Customer’s credit or debit card account in the amount of the charge.

 

3. Electronically Delivered Software Products. 

In the case of electronically delivered software Products, Customer will receive an email with an activation key and download link.  Customer shall be responsible for downloading the software Product and bear risk of loss relating thereto, including the failure of a computer, hard drive, or internet connection.  Internet or other connection charges in connection with the download, access, and use of the software Product shall be Customer’s responsibility.  

 

4. Returns 

If Lenovo makes an error in fulfilling Customer’s order, Customer may return or exchange a Product in its sealed, unopened package to Lenovo for a refund or credit.  Customers may only return the entire Product or all such Products for a refund or credit.  Returns allowed for any other reason will be subject to a restocking fee in the amount of 15% of the price paid.  All returns must be initiated within 21 days of the invoice date.  Partial refunds or credits for Products, including installation of software Product options; or quantities of Products that are not separately priced, are not available to Customers.  In order to return a Product, Customer must contact Lenovo to obtain an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization).  Any authorized return must include the Product and all accessories in their sealed, unopened packaging, along with all documentation (including invoice, RMA and original shipping label).  It must be received at the Lenovo National Return Center within ten (10) days of issuance of the RMA.   Returns on any other basis may be refused by Lenovo.  Customer assumes risk of loss and damage for Products returned without an RMA.  

If Customer acquired a software Product separate from a hardware Product and paid a software license fee, but does not agree to the terms of the software license, Customer may return the software Product within 21 days of the date of invoice and receive a refund or credit in the amount of the fee.  Media-based software Product must be returned in its unopened, sealed package.  For return of an electronically delivered software Product, Customer shall provide a letter of destruction to Lenovo, in a form provided by Lenovo, confirming that the software Product has been uninstalled and destroyed.
