Refund Policy

Refund Policy

We have prepared this Refund Policy to explain when you can request a refund with respect to products and services acquired from Movetech or through us from our partners and/or affiliates (collectively “Services”).

General Terms

General terms apply to all refund eligible Services. In addition, there may be special term(s) that apply to a specific product and/or service and those are outlined below.

  • In no event is the same Service eligible for more than one refund.
  • Service(s) must be cancelled before we can issue a refund.
  • No refund will be made if your Service(s) are suspended or terminated for cause.
  • If purchased Service(s) include free domain name registration as part of a promotion or sale of the Service(s), and you cancel the purchased Service(s), the standard price for the domain name will be deducted from the refund amount. If the refund amount is less than the standard price for the domain, you must either elect to pay the difference or forfeit the domain, in which case, ownership of the domain will revert back to Movetech.

  • Purchases made using M-Pesa account can only be refunded on the purchaser Mpesa account. Purchases made by credit card or PayPal may be refundable to the source of payment.

Shipping and extended warranty are not refundable. After 30 days, the terms of the hardware warranty agreement apply.

Software licenses bundled with appliances sold before January, 2016 may not be transferred to other hardware.

Warranty

Movetech hardware products are covered by a one, two or three year manufacturer warranty based on the option chosen at the time of purchase. If local regulations require a longer period, the longer warranty period applies. The warranty period is effective from the date of delivery to the original purchaser. Any products that are found to be defective within this warranty period will, at the option of Movetech, be replaced or repaired.

During the warranty period, Movetech will repair, replace or credit all defective products, provided that they are returned to Movetech. Return, replacement or repaired units being shipped to and from customers outside the Nairobi, Kenya will be shipped at the customer’s expense. Untangle has sole discretion to determine whether a particular product will be either repaired or replaced. Returns must be made in original factory packaging and include all components originally shipped. Movetech reserves the right to charge for any missing components or packaging, or for damage sustained by the hardware as a result of returning it in non-original packaging, even if the unit otherwise qualifies for warranty repair or replacement under this policy.

Warranty only applies to defects in materials and/or workmanship, which occur during normal wear and proper use.

Warranty does not apply to those products that are damaged due to misuse, abuse, negligence, alteration or modification.

Warranty does not extend to any damage that occurs in shipment or due to natural phenomenon (e.g. lightning).
