Limited Warranty

WD warrants that the Product, in the course of its normal use, will for the term defined
below, be free from defects in material and workmanship and will conform to WD’s
specification therefor. The term of your limited warranty depends on the country in which
your Product was purchased. The term of your limited warranty is for 3 years in the
North, South and Central America region, 3 years in the Europe, the Middle East and
Africa region, and 3 years in the Asia Pacific region, unless otherwise required by law.
The term of your limited warranty period shall commence on the purchase date
appearing on your purchase receipt. WD shall have no liability for any Product returned if
WD determines that the Product was stolen from WD or that the asserted defect a) is not
present, b) cannot reasonably be rectified because of damage occurring before WD
receives the Product, or c) is attributable to misuse, improper installation, alteration
(including removing or obliterating labels and opening or removing external enclosures,
unless the product is on the list of limited user-serviceable products and the specific
alteration is within the scope of the applicable instructions, as found at


), accident or mishandling while in the possession

of someone other than WD. Subject to the limitations specified above, your sole and
exclusive warranty shall be, during the period of warranty specified above and at WD’s
option, the repair or replacement of the Product.

The foregoing limited warranty is WD’s sole warranty and is applicable only to products
sold as new. The remedies provided herein are in lieu of a) any and all other remedies
and warranties, whether expressed, implied or statutory, including but not limited to, any
implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, and b) any and all
obligations and liabilities of WD for damages including, but not limited to accidental,
consequential, or special damages, or any financial loss, lost profits or expenses, or lost
data arising out of or in connection with the purchase, use, or performance of the
Product, even if WD has been advised of the possibility of such damages. In the United
States, some states do not allow exclusion or limitations of incidental or consequential
damages, so the limitations above may not apply to you. This warranty gives you
specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.

Warranty Information (Australia/New Zealand)

Nothing in this warranty modifies or excludes your legal rights under the Australian
Competition and Consumer Act or the New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act. This
warranty identifies WD's preferred approach to resolving warranty claims which is likely
to be quick and simple for all parties.

No other warranties either express or implied by law, including but not limited to those
contained in the Sale of Goods Act, are made with respect to the Product. If you
purchased your Product in New Zealand for the purposes of a business, you
acknowledge and agree that the New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act does not
apply. In Australia, our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the
Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure
and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also
entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if goods fail to be of acceptable quality
and the failure does not amount to a major failure. What constitutes a major failure is set
out in the Australian Consumer Law.
