WITHDRAWAL FROM THE CONTRACT, COMPLAINTS AND RETURNS
The Complaints and Returns Rules specify how the Customer and Seller should proceed if the customer has a legitimate reason for exercising his rights in connection with liability for defective goods.
The Customer is obliged to select a product type and size that meets his requirements. In other words, before buying the product the Customer must take into account the purpose, use, material composition, design and finish of the goods.
The Customer is required always to pay sufficient attention to the fundamental rules governing the use of the goods. All factors with a detrimental effect on the full functionality and lifespan of the product (in particular excessively intensive use of the product or use for an inappropriate purpose) must be considered.
If a defect arises on purchased goods during the warranty period, the Customer is entitled to return the product. Defect means a change in (the properties of) the goods caused by the use of unsuitable or poor-quality materials, non-compliance with technological procedures or use of unsuitable technologies, or possibly unsuitable design. A change in (the properties of) goods caused during the warranty period by wear-and-tear, incorrect use, insufficient or inappropriate maintenance, natural changes in the materials the goods are made from, any damage by the user or a third party or any other inappropriate tampering cannot be regarded as a defect.
If the Customer exercises his right to return a sold item in the proper manner, the return process, including the elimination of any defect, will be executed without undue delay and no later than 30 days after the product was returned (unless Engelmüller agrees on a longer processing period with the Customer). The assigned and competent employee will decide how the complaint is dealt with. Returned goods should be returned complete, clean, dry and hygienically safe. If goods are returned in a hygienically unacceptable state (dirty, wet, mouldy etc.), the complaint will be rejected immediately.
Customers returning goods must fill in the returns form and send the goods, in their original condition and packaging, to the Operator’s address along with the returns form. Customers return goods at their own expense. The Customer is responsible for the goods until it they are properly delivered to the Operator. Before sending, goods must be packed in a way preventing them from being damaged or destroyed.
Returns must be done within twenty-four months after the goods were bought and received. Returns must be done without delay as soon as the defect emerges. Any delay and continued use of the goods may cause the defect to worsen and devalue the goods or prevent an objective assessment of the actual causes of the current condition of the goods, and may therefore be grounds for rejecting the complaint.
The warranty period must not be confused with the goods’ lifespan, i.e. the period of time the goods may last if correctly used and correctly maintained with regard to their properties, their purpose and differences in the intensity of their use. The warranty period is a general administrative period that has no direct connection to the usual lifespan of a particular product.
The kind of defect that can be eliminated without compromising the appearance, function and quality of the goods is deemed to be an eliminable defect.
If it is not inappropriate in view of the nature of the defect, the Customer may demand that the goods are exchanged (the goods may be exchanged for any other goods as the Customer wishes). If the goods cannot be exchanged, the Customer may withdraw from the contract or demand a proportionate discount on the price of the goods.
The kind of defect which cannot be eliminated or whose elimination is impractical in view of all the significant circumstances is deemed to be a non-eliminable defect. If the defect is non-eliminable and prevents the goods being used in the normal way as non-defective goods, the Customer is entitled to:
- demand that the goods are exchanged for new, non-defective goods (any goods chosen by the Customer) or withdraw from the purchase contract.
- If the nature of the non-eliminable defect does not prevent the goods being used in the normal way (e.g. aesthetic defects) and the Customer does not demand that the goods are exchanged, the Customer is entitled to a proportionate discount on the purchase price or may withdraw from the contract. Discounts are provided taking into account the nature of the defect, the degree and type of wear-and-tear, the length of the time the product has been used and the possibilities for its further use.
The Complaints and Returns Rules were drawn up within the meaning of Act No. 89/2012, Civil Code, and Act No. 634/1992, on consumer protection.
