1.    What defects are we liable for?

As the seller we are liable that the goods have no defects as of the moment of its takeover. This means that the goods:

  • have characteristics, which have been negotiated between us, which we describe, or which you could expect with regard to the nature of the goods and on the basis of an advertisement;
  • have the right quantity, measure or weight; and
  • meet the requirements of the applicable legislation.

The disparity of colour tones in reality and on electronic display devices is not considered to be the defect of the goods. If the goods do not match your idea, you have, if you are a consumer, the right to withdraw from the contract within 14 days from receipt of the goods in accordance with Article 5 of the Terms and Conditions of the Sale.

In case the defect occurs within six months from the receipt of the goods, it shall be deemed that the goods were defective at the time of the takeover (unless proved otherwise).

For consumers we guarantee that the defects will not occur within the warranty period. If you are a non-consumer, you are not provided with such a quality warranty. Article 2 of these Warranty Claim Guidelines applies to consumers only.

2.    How long is the warranty period?

For the new consumer goods, the warranty period is twenty-four months from the receipt of the goods. If there is a longer warranty period stated on the website or in the documents accompanying the goods, such longer warranty period shall apply.

3.    What rights from the defective performance do you have?

In the event that the defect of the goods occurs during the warranty period, for which the purchased product cannot be used properly in full, and this defect could be removed, you are entitled to a free repair.

For removable defects on the yet unused product you can require an exchange of the defective product for a new good one instead of the elimination of the defect, or a reasonable discount from the purchase price.

In case of defects that cannot be removed and which prevent the goods to be properly used as a goods without the defect, you have the right to exchange the goods, right to a reasonable discount from the purchase price or the right to withdraw from the contract.

You have the right to a reasonable discount also in case we are not able to supply you a new goods without defects, exchange the part of it, or repair it, or if we do not make a remedy within a reasonable time, or that the remedy would rise a substantial difficulties to you.

You do not have the right to withdraw from the contract or the right to require a delivery of a new item in case you cannot return the goods in the condition in which you received it (except the cases stated by law).

4.    When you cannot exercise the rights from defective performance?

You do not have the rights from the defective performance if:

  • you have had the knowledge of the defect prior taking over;
  • you have caused the defect by yourself;
  • warranty period has expired.

Warranty and liability claims for the defects also does not apply to:

  • wear and tear of the goods caused by their use;
  • defects caused by improper use of the goods, failure to comply with the manual, improper maintenance or improper storage.

For the items sold at a lower price, we are not responsible for the defect for which the lower price was negotiated.

We are not responsible for any personal injury or damage to property and goods, which are caused by improper use, or misuse of the goods or negligence.
