insurance tablets

Here is some further information on the "insurance" that some of the teachers in the kick.off meetings.

The contract document signed by the participating schools says: During the period of the Project, the School shall ensure that the Equipment is fully covered by insurance, or a similar arrangement, for loss or damage from whatever cause.

In practice this means that an insurance is not obligatory and a school can decide not to have an insurance if it will cover the cost of a new tablet if anything happens. To decide, the schools can make an estimation of possible costs: insurance coverage to all equipment vs. buying new tablet if any of the tablets gets damaged.

Related to this please remember that the Acer product warranty covers defected material or workmanship under normal use (during 12 months). It does not cover damages as a result of use of the product other than for its normal intended use or other misuse, e.g. if liquid is spilled over the tablet or if it is dropped on a floor.
