8.1 Ad-pods will not accept returns unless prior authorisation has been approved and a returns number issued. Ad-pods reserve the right to not issue a returns authorisation if the circumstances of return are deemed by Ad-pods to be unreasonable. The Ad-pod is not a try before you buy product and we do not issue refunds based on a change of mind or limited use by the end user. Ad-pods are shipped preloaded with your advert campaign running and the pod has been thoroughly tested and is ready to use from the point of delivery. Should the software be incompatible with a PC operating system this does not constitute grounds for a returns authorization number to be issued. In circumstance where a customers PC is incompatible with the Ad-pods updater it is the customers responsibility to use a compatible PC, if this is not possible Ad-pods will send out pre-configured zip files which allow the customer to udate the ad-pod using a memory stick. As Ad-pods are sold with a 1 year return to base warranty in the event of a hardware fault the unit will be repaired or replaced so long as there is no physical damage to the unit that was done while in the customers care that would nullify the 1 year warranty. To obtain authorisation for return please call 01803 226112. All returns must be processed within 7 days of delivery.

9.0 General Descriptive Matter

As we set up the customers advert before delivery this is highly unlikely to occur because full length communications happen with every customer and the Ad-pod is delivered tested and ready to use by simply connecting a power supply.

We do not license the Ad-pods for use in an advertising network promoting other non disclosed businesses without prior authorisation from Ad-pods.

There may be monthly license fees applicable for running an advertising network using Ad-pods technology.
