  1. These general terms and conditions apply to every offer made by the entrepreneur and to every remote agreement and order that is concluded between the entrepreneur and the consumer.
  2. Before the remote agreement is concluded, the text of these general conditions shall be made available to the consumer. If this is not reasonably possible, before the remote agreement is concluded, it will be indicated that the general conditions are available for perusal at the entrepreneur’s premises and that they will be sent to the consumer free of charge as soon as possible, at the consumer’s request.
  3. If the remote agreement is concluded electronically, then, contrary to the previous paragraph, and before the remote agreement is concluded, the text of these general terms and conditions may be made available to the consumer by electronic means in such a way that the consumer can easily store them on a durable medium. If this is not reasonably possible, prior to the conclusion of the distance selling agreement, it will be indicated where the general terms and conditions can be viewed electronically and that they will be sent to the consumer free of charge, at his request, either electronically or in another way.

In the event that specific product or service conditions apply in addition to these general terms and conditions, the second and third paragraphs apply by analogy and, in the event of conflicting general terms and conditions, the consumer can always invoke the applicable provision that is most favourable to him.

If one or more provisions in these general terms and conditions are null and void or annulled in part or in full at any time, the agreement and these terms and conditions will remain in force for the rest and the provision in question will be replaced without delay, in mutual consultation, by a provision that approximates the meaning of the original provision as closely as possible.

Article 11 – Compliance and Warranty

  1. The entrepreneur guarantees that the products and/or services fulfil the contract, the specifications stated in the offer, the reasonable requirements of reliability and/or serviceability and the statutory provisions and/or government regulations that existed on the date that the contract was concluded.

  • The consumer has repaired and/or modified the delivered products himself or has had them repaired and/or modified by third parties;
  • The delivered products have been exposed to abnormal conditions or have otherwise been handled carelessly or contrary to the instructions of the entrepreneur and/or on the packaging;

In that case, the consumer has the right to dissolve the agreement free of charge. The consumer is not entitled to compensation.
