the Contract. That is, it is responsible for ensuring that the goods have quality and performance characteristics required by the Contract, described by it or by the manufacturer, or expected on the basis of advertising the goods, possibly for a thing of such a kind of common. The Seller is also responsible that the goods comply with the requirements of the legislation, in the respective quantity, measure or weight and corresponds to the purpose indicated for the use or for which the thing is usually used.
6.2 If the goods do not indicate a longer period, the warranty period is 24 months, with exceptions laid down by the relevant legislation. If there is
instruction indicated on the item sold, its packaging or attached to it, the warranty period does not end before the expiration of this time. However, if the goods bear the expiry date, in this case warranty period lasts only until the date of consumption. For things that are intended to be used for a longer time, special regulations provide for a guarantee period of more than 24 months. A warranty period exceeding 24 months may cover only some
parts of the thing.
6.3 The warranty period starts from the day when the Buyer took over the goods. The complaint is the Buyer entitled to apply by sending the claimed goods to the address of the Seller. Before sending the claimed goods and initiating the complaint procedure, the Seller recommends the Buyer to send him by email a photograph of the claimed goods, for the purpose of an informal assessment of the condition of the goods and obtaining non-binding information on the possible further procedure and outcome of the complaint procedure. In case of a complaint, the Buyer is obliged to prove the origin of the goods, for example by invoice, warranty card, if it was attached to the goods where appropriate, by other demonstrable means. The Buyer is also obliged to describe how the defect manifests itself.
6.4 If it is such a defect in the goods that can be eliminated, the Buyer has the right to have it
free of charge, timely and properly eliminated, and to eliminate the defect without undue
delay. Instead of eliminating the defect, the Buyer may require replacement of the item, or if
the defect relates only to the part of the thing, the replacement of the part, if the Seller does not incur disproportionate costs, given the price of the goods or the severity of the defect. Instead of eliminating the defect, the Seller can always replace the defective item with an impeccable one, if it does not cause serious difficulties to the Buyer.
6.5 In case of such a defect in the goods which cannot be remedied, and which prevents the goods from being properly used as a thing without defects, the Buyer has the right to the goods replacement or has the right to withdraw from the contract. The Buyer has the same rights even if the defects are removable but cannot for the re-occurrence of the defect after repair or for a greater number of defects properly use the goods. Re-occurrence of the defect after repair means that the defect, which has already been repaired at least twice during the warranty period, will occur for the third time. If these are other non-removable defects, the Buyer has the right to a reasonable discount on the price of the item.
6.6 Method of handling the complaint shall be determined by the Seller and handle the complaint immediately, in complex cases no later than three working days from the date of filing of the complaint, in
justified cases, in particular where a complex technical assessment of the condition of the goods is required no later than 30 days from the date of application of the complaint. After the expiry of that period shall the buyer have the same rights, as if it were a defect that can not be eliminated.
6.7 When filing a complaint, the Seller shall issue a written confirmation. The Seller shall
issue a written document about handling the complaint.
6.8 If the complaint is made by the Buyer within the first 12 months of purchase, the
Seller may handle the complaint and refuse it only on the basis of professional assessment. Regardless of the outcome of the expert assessment, the Seller will not require from the Buyer reimbursement of professional assessment costs and other costs related with expert assessment.
6.9 If the Buyer files a complaint of the goods after 12 months after the purchase and the Seller rejects it, in the complaint handling document we will indicate to whom you can send the product for expert assessment. If the Buyer sends the product for expert assessment to a designated person, the costs of the expert assessment as well as any other related purposefully incurred costs shall be borne by the Seller, regardless of the result of the expert assessment. If by professional assessment, the Buyer proves the Seller's liability for the defect, the complaint may be reapplied. During the execution of the professional assessment of the warranty period does not elapse. In this case, the Seller shall reimburse the Buyer within 14 days from the date of re-filing the claim all costs incurred for expert assessment, as well as all associated costs incurred purposefully. Complaint thus reapplied shall not be rejected.
6.10 The warranty does not apply to wear and tear of goods caused by their normal use; or
defects resulting from unprofessional handling or exploitation of goods.
6.11 The period from the exercise of the right of liability for defects until the time after the end of the repairs the Buyer was obliged to take over the goods, is not counted in the warranty period. If there is replacement, the warranty period starts to run again from the receipt of the new goods.
6.12 A warranty card can also be delivered together with the goods. Unless delivered, it is replaced by an invoice.
