In all cases, purchaser must obtain from Crystal Pure Water Company a Return Authorization Form (RAF) and an RMA number prior to returning a product or products. Correct return address including RMA will be provided. Returning goods without a valid RAF and an RMA are not accepted. Purchaser pays for this return shipment. Seller will not assume responsibility for transit damage or loss, therefore, suitable insurance is recommended.
Refund type/amount will fall into the following categories.
1) Declared defective products, within warranty period - case 1: Originating manufacturer/factory in communication with Crystal Pure Water Company (Prosperity Management, Inc.) will rigorously assess the condition of the returned item(s). If a product(s) is found defective or out of spec, appropriate product warranty terms will apply. Brand new product(s) will be re-shipped to the purchaser free of charge and the return shipment charge will be reimbursed in full.
2) Declared defective products, within warranty period - case 2: If the product(s) is found to be functional and within spec, it will be sent back to the purchaser as is. Purchaser will be charged for the second shipping and the incurred product return shipment cost will not be reimbursed
3) Declared defective products, outside warranty period: In principle Crystal Pure Water Co has no obligation. In practice, however, Crystal Pure Water Co may entertain some accomodation depending on the circumstance. The accomodation will vary from case to case. It might involve RMA return and shipment of brand new product(s) after agreed upon differential payment is received. It may involve no return and agreed upon differential payment. The details will be negotiated between Crystal Pure Water and the purchaser.
4) No-fault, change-of-heart return: If the purchaser changes mind after receiving the product ordered, there is no return or refund if the equipment has been installed, regardless of if water has entered it. If return and refund are requested, f returned unit(s) is functional and suitable for resale as is, and if buyer orders any item from Crystal Pure with the credit, the original payment minus the first shipping cost is applied in full to the second purchase. If the buyer just wants refund, 25% handling fee will be levied on the original payment minus the original shipping.
If the item(s) has been in use for some time and found not suitable for resale as is, Prosperity Management, Inc. retains the right to unilaterally determine the level of reimbursement depending on the residual resale value.
