FileMaker Branded Products

If you discover what you believe is a product defect for any FileMaker-branded product, please contact Customer Support. Such a defect, if any, may be covered under the terms of your product's warranty. Please refer to the warranty information contained in the Application Software License Agreement for your product.

Note: Products sold through this web site, or through the FileMaker Order Center that do not bear the FileMaker brand name are serviced and supported exclusively by their manufacturers in accordance with terms and conditions packaged with the products. FileMaker's Limited Warranty does not apply to products that are not FileMaker-branded, even if packaged or sold with FileMaker products.

NOTE: FileMaker recommends that you:

  1. Use a carrier that offers shipment tracking for all returns, and
  2. Either insure your package for safe return to FileMaker or declare the full value of the shipment so that you are completely protected if the shipment is lost or damaged in transit.

If you choose not to (1) Use a carrier that offers tracking and (2) Insure or declare the full value of the product, you will be responsible for any loss or damage to the product during shipping.

Please note that the United States Postal Service (USPS) offers limited tracking capabilities and that there is a 30-calendar-day waiting period before the USPS will initiate a trace.
