Hauppauge products may only be returned to the place of purchase, and are subject to the return policy of the place of purchase.
A product purchased directly from the Hauppauge webstore may be returned for a refund within 30 days of the original purchase date. Refunds will not be granted after this duration. Returned hardware must include all items from the original package (Cables, carton, etc). in addition to the product. Credit will not be issued for incomplete packages.
Refunds will normally take 5-7 business days to be processed. If the original purchase was made by credit card, your credit card will be refunded the purchase price plus any sales tax less shipping charges. A purchase made by check or money order will have a refund check issued by mail accordingly. Shipping charges and duties for products shipped to you are not refundable.
Refunds are not available for software purchases.
All returns must be authorized by Hauppauge before they will be accepted.
In order to send in a defective Hauppauge product for warranty service, you MUST contact Hauppauge to obtain a Return Material Authorization number (RMA). To obtain an RMA, please contact Tech Support by email email@example.com or by phone +1-631-434-1600. Proof of purchase would be required and must fall within the warranty period of 2 years from the purchase date.
Once an RMA# is obtained, you will be given instructions on how to ship the product to Hauppauge for service/replacement. All returns must be shipped in a box to avoid damage during shipment, and must have the RMA# assigned to your return clearly marked on the outside of the box. The cost to ship the product back to Hauppauge is the responsibility of the customer. Products lost or damaged during transit are not the responsibility of Hauppauge. We recommend shipping returns with a trackable shipping method only.
Any order placed on the Hauppauge webstore can be cancelled up until the product is shipped to you. If you cancel an order after a product has been shipped, we will process this cancellation under the 'Refunds' section of this Limited Warranty.
Shipping Point and VAT
Products shipped into Europe will be delivered from the Hauppauge Digital Europe Sarl warehouse in Dublin, Ireland. VAT is prepaid based on the country where the products are shipped to.
Out Of Warranty Service
A product that falls out of the warranty period and requires service may be sent in for repair. An RMA# must first be obtained by contacting Hauppauge Computer technical support (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by telephone +1-631-434-1600. Out of warranty products will incur a repair charge of $35 plus parts plus shipping costs.

HAUPPAUGE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE OR DATA (WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT) OR COMMERCIAL LOSS FOR BREACH OF ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY ON YOUR PRODUCT EVEN IF HAUPPAUGE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of special, indirect, incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
