Why Do I Have To Register?
In order to ensure that your Thecus NAS Product is fully covered by your On-Site Warranty it is important that you correctly register it with Origin Storage Limited, failure to register your Thecus NAS Product correctly may result in your product not being eligible for cover.
By registering your Thecus NAS Product you will provide Origin Storage Limited with all the details we need to ensure you receive all the benefits of your On-Site Warranty and that we can provide the levels of service you would expect from ourselves.
Upon successful Product Registration you will receive a Product Registration Certificate which will contain your unique On-Site Warranty Contract Number, without this number you may not be able to make a claim under warranty.
How Do I Register My Thecus NAS Product?
To register your Thecus NAS Product you must return the completed Product Registration Form within 60 days of date of purchase. If you fail to register your Thecus NAS Product within this time period you may lose entitlement to cover under the On-Site Warranty.
When submitting the Product Registration Form it is important that you complete all the fields in full and that you ensure all the details supplied are correct. Failure to provide the correct details on the Thecus NAS Product to be covered may result in your registration being delayed.
Whilst you have up to 60 days to register your Thecus NAS Product, we will not be able to provide On-Site Warranty Cover on faults that occur prior to you completing the Product Registration process.
Each On-Site Warranty Pack is only usable against an individual Thecus NAS Product. If you have purchased multiple Thecus NAS Products and On-Site Warranty Packs you must complete a Product Registration Form for each Thecus NAS Product to ensure that they are all correctly registered for On-Site Warranty Cover.
Upon receipt of your completed Product Registration Form(s), Origin Storage Limited will validate the information on the Thecus NAS Products to be covered. Once the information has been successfully validated we will send you a Product Registration Certificate for each Thecus NAS Product registered which will contain your unique On-Site Warranty Contract Number.
Origin Storage Limited cannot be held responsible for Product Registration Forms not received by ourselves. If you have not received your Product Registration Certificate(s) within 3 working days of registering your Thecus NAS Product please contact us immediately.
How Do I Make A Claim On My On-Site Warranty?
Should a Thecus NAS Product that is covered by an On-Site Warranty develop a fault during the period of warranty cover, please contact the Origin Support Department immediately upon discovering the fault or failure.
You can contact our Support Department using the contact details below between the hours of 08.45 and 17.45, Monday to Friday (excluding National or Bank Holidays).
Please ensure you have the unique On-Site Warranty Contract Number and Serial Number for the Thecus NAS you are calling about.
After we have verified your details a fully trained Support Representative will take details of the fault you are experiencing and ask you some troubleshooting questions to help diagnose the actual cause of the fault.
Origin Storage Limited may, at its sole discretion, determine if a defect can be repaired:
- By the use of a Customer Self Repair part;
- By an on-site service call at the location of the defective unit;
In the first instance a Remote Support session may be used by our Support Representatives to help confirm the cause of the failure or to take corrective action to resolve the failure.
Should our Support Representatives determine that the cause of the failure is a Customer Self Repair part, such as a hot-swappable hard drive or redundant power supply, then provided the support incident has been logged by 15:00 a replacement Customer Self Repair part will be dispatched to arrive the next business day (Monday to Friday) to allow the customer to carry out the repair. Customers who wish to have a Support Representative guide them through the repair once the Customer Self Repair part arrives can request this.
If Origin Storage Limited ultimately determines that an on-site service call is required to repair a defect, the on-site visit will be scheduled for the next business day during standard office hours, provided the support incident has been logged by 15:00. The engineer will only attend the location that the Thecus NAS Product is registered as being installed at.
Next Business Day is defined as Monday to Friday (excluding National/Bank Holidays) and the standard office hours are 08:45 to 17:45.
In order to receive on-site support, you must:
- Have a representative present when Origin provides warranty services at your site;
- Notify Origin if products are being used in an environment which poses a potential health or safety hazard to Origin employees or subcontractors;
- Subject to its reasonable security requirements, provide origin with sufficient, free, and safe access to and use of all facilities, information, and systems determined necessary by Origin to provide timely support;
- Ensure that all manufacturers labels (such as serial numbers) are in place, accessible, and legible;
- Maintain an environment consistent with product specifications and supported configurations;
