TIE warrants that its installation shall be free from defects in workmanship in connection with such installation for a period of ninety (90) days after the cut-over date (defined in the purchase agreement between TIE and purchaser as the date on which TIE executes or otherwise completes a “Closure of Installation Ticket”).

TIE warrants that its equipment will be free from manufacturer defects under normal use by purchaser for a period of one (1) year after the cut-over date. Within this period the equipment will be replaced via Advanced Replacement, where a replacement piece of equipment will be shipped and the old defective equipment will be required to be returned.
LABOR – The warranty on Equipment covers labor costs in connection with troubleshooting and replacing any defective equipment for a period of ninety (90) days after the cut-over date.

SHIPPING – If TIE determines that parts must be shipped to Purchaser in connection with a defect in the Equipment, then TIE shall ship such parts to Purchaser using ground services for defects that do not cause a Service Affecting Issue, and using overnight mail service for defects that cause a Service Affecting Issue. Shipping of defective equipment back to Tie National will be the responsibility of the Purchaser.
