MetaVR return policy and RMA procedure for damaged dongles
MetaVR will replace a damaged dongle if you return, at a minimum, the electronic circuitry to MetaVR along with a MetaVR-allocated Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. MetaVR will not replace a dongle for which you only return the plastic housing or metallic connector without the corresponding electronic circuitry.
Damaged dongles must be photographed or scanned and the images must be emailed to MetaVR before an RMA will be issued. Include in the photo or scan the lot sticker located on the outside of the dongle. In addition to the lot sticker, MetaVR may need the ID number of the dongle. Please see our web page on identifying your dongle. (Note: Your IT department may track the dongle ID number.)
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain an RMA number.
Return a damaged dongle shipped via a return receipt mechanism such as the US Postal Service delivery confirmation with signature or certified mail return receipt. MetaVR charges a nominal shipping/handling fee for replacing a damaged dongle.
