The Operator may always exchange the defective Goods for Goods without defects instead of removing the defects if this does not cause serious difficulties for the Customer.

9.13. In the case of an Irremovable defect that prevents a proper use of the Goods as Goods without defects, the Customer has the right to request from the Operator an exchange of the Goods or to withdraw from the Contract.

If the Customer has submitted a Complaint regarding the Goods later than 12 months after the purchase of the Goods and the Operator has rejected it, the person who handled the Complaint is obliged to specify in the Complaint report to whom the Customer may send the Goods for expert evaluation. If the Goods are sent for expert evaluation to a designated person, the costs of the expert opinion, as well as all other related and reasonably incurred costs, shall be borne by the Operator regardless of the result of the expert evaluation. If the Customer demonstrates the Operator’s liability for a defect by way of an expert opinion, the Customer may re-submit the Complaint. The warranty period shall be suspended during the expert evaluation. The Operator is obliged to pay to the Customer within 14 days from the date of re-submission of the Complaint all reasonably incurred costs of the expert evaluation, as well as all other related and reasonably incurred costs. A re-submitted Complaint cannot be rejected.

The Operator shall send a copy of the Complaint protocol to the Customer together with the Goods, or hand it over to him in person upon receipt of the Goods claimed defective.

9.18.

Defects caused by improper handling of the Goods and defects that occurred only after the delivery of the Goods other than as a result of a breach of duty by the Operator are also excluded from the Warranty. In the event that the Customer discovers that the Goods have been damaged during their transport to the Customer, he shall fill out a report on damage to the Goods during transport in the presence of the Courier (if possible), or upon collection at the Post office or in Paketa in the presence of an authorized employee of the Post office or Paketa.
