A complaint about defective goods may be made to the Seller pursuant to the complaint procedure.
Complaints regarding goods purchased prior to and including 31 December 2013 are governed by Act No. 40/1964 Coll., the Civil Code, Consumer Protection Act and the complaint procedure valid until 31 December 2013.
The Buyer is obligated to get acquainted with the complaint procedure and Business Terms prior to order of the goods. By accepting the goods from the Seller, the Buyer agrees with the below stated complaint procedure.
The Seller shall issue a receipt together with each purchase which serves as a valid invoice and contains information necessary for asserting a faulty performance claim (title of the goods, date, price, quantity, number of the order).
Quality of goods at the time of the receipt
The Seller shall guarantee to the Buyer that the goods at the time of receipt are not defective. The Seller shall namely guarantee to the Buyer, that the goods at the time of receipt:
- have the characteristics that the parties agreed on, otherwise have such characteristics that the Seller or the producer has described or that the Buyer reasonably expected with regard to the nature of the goods and based on the performed advertising;
- are fit for the purpose as declared by the Seller or as ordinarily used for this kind of goods;
- correspond in quality or design to the agreed on sample or model, if a sample or a model was agreed on for quality or design of the goods;
- come in the corresponding quantity, rate or weight;
- comply with all legal requirements.
The above stated provisions shall not apply in regard to sale of defective goods for a lower price, to sale of used goods to the wear out caused by the goods’ ordinary use, to sale of used goods to the defect corresponding to the degree of use or wear out that the goods had at the time of the receipt by the Buyer or if it results from the nature of the goods.
In case the goods do not comply with the above stated requirements at the time of the receipt by the Buyer, the Buyer is entitled to delivery of new non defective goods unless it would be unreasonable with regard to the nature of the goods. In case only a part of the product is defective, the Buyer is entitled to an exchange of the defective part; if an exchange of the defective part is not possible, the Buyer is entitled to withdraw from the agreement and claim return of the full purchase price. However, if such procedure is disproportionate to the nature of the defect, particularly if the defect may be removed without undue delay, the Buyer is entitled to free removal of the defect. In case the Buyer does not withdraw from the agreement or does not claim delivery of new non defective goods, an exchange of its part or repair the goods, the Buyer is entitled to a proportional discount from the purchase price. The Buyer is entitled to a proportional discount even if the Seller cannot provide new non defective goods, exchange its parts or repair the goods, as well as if the Seller does not redress the Buyer in a timely manner or if such redress would cause significant inconvenience to the Buyer.
In case the defect manifests itself within 6 months from the receipt by the Buyer, it is assumed that the goods were defective at the time of the receipt.
Rights from faulty performance and warranty period
The Seller shall be liable for all defects arising within the warranty period, i.e. 24 months after receipt of the goods by the Buyer. Liability for such defects is applicable where liability for the quality of goods at the time of the receipt does not apply. The warranty period for used goods may be shortened to 12 months; such change shall be marked by the Seller on the receipt.
In case the faulty performance constitutes a substantial breach of the agreement, the Buyer is entitled to a removal of the defect in the way of delivery of new non defective goods or delivery of a missing part, removal of the defect in the way of repair of the goods, proportional discount from the purchase price or withdrawal from the agreement.
A breach is substantial if the breaching party at the time of entering into the agreement knew or must have known that the other party would not have entered into the agreement had it anticipated such a breach; otherwise it is not a substantial breach of the agreement.
In case the Seller fails to remove the defects in a timely manner or announces to the Buyer that it shall not do so, the Buyer is entitled to a proportional discount from the purchase price or withdrawal from the agreement instead of removal of the defect.
In case the faulty performance does not constitute a substantial breach of the agreement or the Buyer fails to notify what right based on the above he chose to claim when reporting a defect that constitutes a substantial breach of the agreement or afterwards without undue delay, the Buyer is entitled to removal of the defect or proportional discount from the purchase price.
In case of repeated occurrence of defects after repair or in case of multiple defects, the Buyer is entitled to choose either delivery of new goods, exchange of a part or right to withdraw from the agreement.
The Buyer shall assert faulty performance claims at the seat of the Seller. The Buyer may also send the defective goods for complaint to the business premises of the Seller. The shipment must be visibly marked with the words “REKLAMACE” and must contain the defective goods (including all accessories), copy of the receipt, a detailed description of the defect and sufficient contact information of the Buyer (return address, phone number). The origin of the shipment and the defect of the goods cannot be identified without the above stated information.
The complaint shall be examined only in regard to the defect described in writing by the Buyer (in a complaint form or letter with a description of the defect).
In case of delivery of the goods by a transport operator the Buyer is obligated to check the status of the shipment in the presence of the transport operator (quantity of the packages, integrity of the strip with the company logo, damage of the packaging) according to the attached shipping document and in case a defect is discovered, the Buyer shall make a complaint directly with the transport operator. The transport operator shall consequently issue a report on discovered defects and the shipment shall be returned to the Seller. The Buyer is entitled to refuse the shipment which does not comply with the purchase agreement, e.g. if the shipment is incomplete or damaged. In case the Buyer accepts such defective shipment from the transport operator, it is necessary to issue a hand over protocol with a description of the defect. In case of an incomplete or defective shipment, it is necessary to notify the Seller without undue delay of the shipment by email to the email address: info@ pivnidarky.cz, issue a report on discovered defects and send the report without undue delay to the Seller to the email address and by mail. There can be no breach of the purchase agreement based on an additional complaint on incompleteness or outer damage of the shipment.
The Buyer shall prove the validity of the warranty with a receipt, or in another reliable way, and in case a complaint was made in the past, the Buyer shall put forth documents relating to the previous complaint as well.
The moment the Seller receives the defective goods from the Buyer is considered as the moment the complaint is made.
The warranty does not apply to defects caused:
- by careless, improper or forcible mechanical manner;
- by ordinary wear out caused by ordinary use of the goods;
- by use of goods in inappropriate temperature, dust or humidity conditions contrary to the manufacturer’s recommendation;
- by excessive strain or use contrary to the conditions set out in the goods documentation or general principles;
- in case it is a defect that the Buyer must have noticed using reasonable care and diligence when entering into the contract;
- in case the goods were damaged by natural forces or force majeure.
In case the Seller discovers that the defect corresponds with one of the above set out provisions, the complaint shall be denied. In case the Buyer consequently agrees with a paid repair, the repair shall be charged based on a currently valid price list.
