PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS

Unified attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Unified does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this site or any Unified Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by Unified itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
