The warranty warrants you that the product you receive is in good and working condition to serve its purpose as specified by the manufacturers or us in the listing.
If an item sold by himarkcomputers.com (in our Ebay account or the himarkcomputers.com website) is confirmed to be defective, not working or not serving the purpose specified when it is received, it will be treated as DOA (Dead On Arrival). The warranty period for DOA is 7 days from the date the item is delivered to you.
Any products found to be defective within the warranty period specified by himarkcomputers.com (in our Ebay account or the himarkcomputers.com website) will be claimable and honoured by himarkcomputers.com (in our Ebay account or the himarkcomputers.com website).
For all products sold by himarkcomputers.com (in our Ebay account or the himarkcomputers.com website) that stated himarkcomputers.com as the warrantor, fulfilments for the warranty will be either of the following:
