The Consumer may exercise their right of withdrawal between the date of fulfilment of the contract and the date of delivery of the product.

If the Consumer wishes to exercise their right of withdrawal, they shall provide the Service Provider with a unequivocal declaration of their intention to withdraw from the contract (by e-mail or in a letter addressed to the mailing address indicated in Clause 1 for product returns). The Consumer may exercise their right of withdrawal in due time by sending their declaration of withdrawal to the Service Provider before the expiration date of the above deadline.

The Consumer shall be responsible for proving that they exercised their right of withdrawal in accordance with the provisions set forth in Clause 5. In both cases, the Service Provider shall immediately confirm the receipt of the Consumer’s declaration of withdrawal by e-mail. This is not possible if the Consumer gives their declaration of withdrawal by phone.

In case of a withdrawal by the Consumer, the Consumer is obliged to return the ordered product to the Service Provider’s address indicated in Clause 1 without undue delay, but no later than within 3 working days from the date of the notice of withdrawal. The deadline is deemed to be met if the Consumer sends the product by post or hands it over to courier ordered by them before the 14-day deadline expires.

In this case, only the price of the product shall be refunded but not the cost of postage.

The returned package must contain the product and the invoice for the product, preferably along with a paper copy of the completed declaration of withdrawal.

  5. e) with respect to digital content provided on a non-tangible medium, when the Service Provider has commenced the performance with the explicit, prior consent of the Consumer, and the Consumer has, at the same time, expressed their acknowledgment that they will lose their right of withdrawal after commencement of the performance.
  6. Warranty

6.1 Liability for defects

In the event of a defective performance by the Service Provider, the User may enforce a liability for defects claim against the Service Provider. In the case of a consumer contract, the Customer may, within the 2-year limitation period from the date of delivery, enforce their warranty claims for product defects that had existed at the time of delivery. Outside of the two-year limitation period, the Customer is no longer entitled to enforce his/her warranty claims.

In the case of a contract concluded with a non-consumer, the entitled person may enforce their warranty claims for a period of 1 year from the date of delivery.

The Customer may, at their discretion, request a repair or replacement, unless the request would be impossible to carry out or if the Service Provider would incur a disproportionate amount of additional costs by fulfilling the request in comparison to the cost of any other claim. If the Customer has not requested or could not request the repair or replacement of the product, they may request a proportional discount in the product price or they may repair or have the defect repaired at the expense of the Service Provider or, as a last resort, may terminate the contract. There is no ground for withdrawal due to insignificant defects.

The Customer may also choose to enforce another right other than the liability for defects, however, they shall bear the cost of such a change, unless it was justified or the Service Provider gave cause for it. The Customer is obliged to notify the Service Provider immediately, but no later than within two months upon the discovery of the defect. The Customer may enforce their warranty claim directly against the Service Provider.

Within six months of the fulfilment of the contract, apart from the reporting the defect, the assertion of the liability for defects claim shall not be subject to a further condition other than the Customer showing proof that they purchased the product from the Service Provider (by presenting the invoice or a copy of the invoice). In such a case, the Service Provider shall be exempt from the claim only if they rebut this presumption, that is, if the Service Provider manages to prove that the defect in the product occurred after the delivery of the product to the Customer. If the Service Provider can prove that the defect occurred for a reason attributable to the Customer, then the Service Provider is not obliged to accept the Customer’s warranty claim. However, after the expiration of the six month period from the contract fulfilment date, the Customer shall be obliged to prove that the fault detected by them had already been present at the time of the fulfilment.

If the Customer enforces their warranty claim with respect to a part of the product that is separate in terms of the indicated defect, the warranty claim shall not be deemed enforced for other parts of the product.

6.2 Product warranty

In the event of a defect in the product (movable item), the customer who is considered to be the consumer has as the option to enforce the right as specified by clause 5.1., or may enforce a product warranty claim. However, the Customer does not have the right to enforce a liability for defect and a product warranty claim at the same time for the same defect. On the other hand, in the event of a successful enforcement of a product warranty claim, the Customer may enforce a liability for defects claim against the manufacturer with reference to the replaced product or the repaired part. When enforcing a product warranty claim, the Customer may only request the repair or replacement of the defective product. In the event of a product warranty claim being enforced, the defect in the product must be proven by the Customer. A product is considered to be defective if it does not meet the quality requirements in force at the time of its release on the market or if it does not have the properties specified by the manufacturer’s description.

The Customer may enforce their claim within two years of the product being placed on the market by the manufacturer. When this period expires, the Customer shall lose this entitlement. The Customer is obliged to notify the manufacturer immediately upon discovery of the defect. If the defect is reported within two months of the discovery of the defect, then it shall be deemed to have been reported without delay. The Customer is liable for any damages arising as a result of a delay in the communication. The Customer may enforce their product warranty claim against the manufacturer or distributor (Service Provider) of the movable item.

The manufacturer, distributor (Service Provider) shall only exempted from the product warranty claim if they can prove that:

  • the product was not manufactured or marketed within the scope of their business, or
  • the state of the scientific and technical knowledge did not allow the defect to be detectable at the time when the product was put into circulation,
  • the defect in the product arose as a result of applying legal or mandatory regulatory requirements.

The manufacturer, distributor (Service Provider) must only provide one reason for the exemption.
