Tempered reserves the right to examine promptly any allegedly non-conforming Covered Product and perform an analysis to reasonably determine if the alleged non-conformance: (a) is a result of defective materials or workmanship (in which case the remedies set forth herein shall apply); (b) does not exist; (c) results from issues external to the Covered Products such as problems with Customer’s network or systems; or (d) was caused by improper use or installation other than by Tempered or damage in transit hereunder in which case Customer shall have no right to any remedies hereunder for the respective Covered Product.

            3.2        RMA. Upon receipt of Customer’s written notification of failure, Tempered and Customer shall promptly exchange all relevant data reasonably necessary to determine the root cause of the alleged non-conformance and cooperate in good faith to establish a corrective action plan. If Tempered determines that the non-conformance was due to defective materials or workmanship, or Tempered’s improper use or installation, or to damage in transit from Tempered to Customer, Tempered will issue a Return Material Authorization (“RMA”) for the non-conforming Covered Products, and Customer will return the non-conforming unit or units to Tempered’s designated facility in accordance with the RMA procedures. Covered Products returned to Tempered must be pre-authorized by Tempered with an RMA number marked on the outside of the package, and sent prepaid, insured and packaged appropriately for safe shipment in the packaging provided by Tempered.
