How will you fix my product?

We use new and refurbished parts made by various manufacturers in performing warranty repairs and in building replacement parts and systems.

Replacement parts and systems are covered for the remaining period of the limited hardware warranty for the product you bought. Dell owns all parts removed from repaired products.

May I transfer the limited hardware warranty?

No. Limited hardware warranties on KACE Hardware are not transferrable.

Support and Training

KACE Appliance Installation Support. First time purchasers of KACE Hardware are required to purchase a KACE JumpStart Program at the time of purchase of their initial KACE Hardware. In connection with the KACE JumpStart Program, KACE or a KACE authorized third party will deliver online training to assist you in the installation and basic configuration of the KACE Hardware. This training will also include exercises that enable deployment of KACE Agent Software on up to 150 managed machines as well as instructions on how to successfully deploy KACE Agent Software on the remaining managed machines (if any). The KACE JumpStart Program consists of a fixed number of two hour sessions depending on the specific model and modules purchased.

 

Standard Appliance JumpStart 2 sessions Standard Bundle JumpStart 4 sessions Enterprise Appliance JumpStart 6 sessions Enterprise Bundle JumpStart 12 sessions

 

These sessions must be completed within 60 days of the initial KACE Hardware shipment. Sessions not completed within that time period can be purchased separately at the then current price levels. Dell KACE Support Services. In order for the KACE products to remain fully updated and current with all patches, you must purchase ongoing Software support services. First time purchasers of KACE Hardware or Software are required to purchase support services covering their first year of use at the time of purchase of their initial KACE Hardware or Software. Thereafter, you must elect to continue to purchase annual support services in order to continue to receive support covering the Software, whether delivered together with the KACE Hardware or separately. A description of the technical support services is available at www.kace.com/support. For so long as you maintain a continuous and up-to-date support services contract, you will also be entitled to software patches, upgrades and updates as described in the Dell KACE Software End User License Agreement available at: www.dell.com/softwarelicenseagreement.

Fee for Reinstatement of Lapsed Support Services. In the event that you elect to discontinue support services, or allow support services to lapse, you will not be entitled to receive any patches, upgrades, updates or other software support services, as described above. In addition, if you later desire to reinstate the Dell KACE support services, you may do so but will be required to pay an amount equal to the sum of: (a) all fees for support services that you would have been required to pay between the date of termination and the date of the reinstatement had the support services remained continuously in effect, (b) the then-current annual fee for support services, and (c) a reinstatement fee equal to 25% of the then-current annual support services fee.
