A buyer – customer is a natural person that does not act within the scope of his/her business activity, job or occupation when concluding and performing a consumer contract.

If the buyer does not check the product, or if he does not have it checked, s/he can make claims ensuing from defects which could have otherwise been detected by this check, only if it is proven that the goods had already suffered from such defects at the time when the risk of damage to goods was transferred.

If the buyer entrepreneur does not take the delivery of the ordered products at a specified address without a prior agreement with the seller on the cancellation of the contract and/or order, the seller is entitled to compensation for the cost incurred by the delivery of the ordered products. This does not affect the claim for compensation for damage and a contractual penalty in compliance with the section on the Cancellation of an Order of these terms and conditions.

Warranty, a Letter of Warranty

The warranty does not apply to normal wear and tear, mechanical damage and the like.

The buyer entrepreneur is entitled to a warranty period of 12 months from accepting the goods.

Complaints and Warranty Claims  

A consumer 

The seller is liable for defects that sold products have at their acceptance by the buyer.

If a defect is repairable, the buyer is entitled to free, proper and early removal of it. The seller is obliged to remove the defect without undue delay. Instead of the removal of the defect, the buyer may require the exchange of the item or its defective components, if this does not incur an unreasonable cost with regard to the product price or seriousness of the defect. The seller may always substitute a defective item for an undefective one if it does not cause serious difficulties to the buyer.  If the defect is not removable and the item cannot be properly used as an undefective one, the buyer may demand the exchange of the item (in the event of selling used goods, the buyer is entitled to an adequate discount) or has the right to withdraw from the contract.    The same rights apply to the buyer if the defects are removable, but the buyer cannot use the item properly, due to the repeated defects after the repair or due to the larger number of defects. If the defects are not removable, the buyer is entitled to an adequate discount on the purchase price. 

The seller is obliged to decide on the manner of handling a complaint without any delay, in the event of complicated cases no later than within 3 working days of asserting a claim, in justified cases, particularly due to the complex technical evaluation of a product or service, no later than 30 days from submitting a claim.  After determining the manner of dealing with a complaint, it is processed immediately without any delays, in justified cases, it can be dealt with later; however, the procedure cannot take longer than 30 days from when submitting a complaint.  After the period for a complaint procedure is over, the consumer is entitled to withdraw from the contract or has the right to demand the exchange of a product for a new one.   

The period from the assertion of the right for liability for defects to the end of a complaint procedure (delivering repaired products, a written notice to perform or a justified refusal) is not included in a warranty period. In the case of exchange of a product for a new one, the new warranty period begins by accepting the new product.  

If the customer makes a claim within the first 12 months from the purchase, the seller can reject the claim only on the grounds of an expert evaluation; regardless of the outcome of the expert evaluation, the customer cannot be asked to cover the expenses incurred by the expert evaluation or other expenses related to the professional evaluation.

The seller is obliged to provide the customer with a copy of an expert evaluation justifying the rejection of a complaint no later than 14 days from the day of handling the complaint.

If the customer lodges a complaint within 12 months of the purchase, and the seller rejects it, the seller is obliged to inform the customer who s/he may send the product for an expert evaluation to in a formal document for a complaint procedure.

If the product is sent to a designated person for a formal evaluation, expert assessment costs, and any other related expenses incurred shall be borne by the seller regardless of the outcome of the expert evaluation. If the consumer proves the seller's liability for defects by an expert evaluation, he can lodge the complaint again. During the process of professional assessment, the warranty period shall be suspended. The seller is obliged to reimburse the customer within 14 days of the day of making a repeated complaint, for all the costs incurred by the expert assessment, as well as all other related expenses.

A refiled complaint cannot be rejected.

The seller is obliged to confirm the submission of a complaint to the customer immediately. If this is not possible, the confirmation has to be delivered without undue delay, together with proof of resolving the claim; the confirmation of submission of a complaint does not have to be delivered if the customer has an opportunity to demonstrate the submission of a complaint in another way.

When submitting a complaint, the buyer will send properly packed goods, the description of a defect as well as a copy of a receipt (or the letter of warranty if it has been issued), to the address: 

UKOVMI s.r.o.

The buyer will be informed about the outcome of the complaint procedure immediately after the end of this procedure by phone, and at the same time a complaint protocol will be delivered to them via e-mail and/or together with the claimed goods. 

 The goods sent by cash on delivery are not accepted by the seller. It is recommended to insure the goods. The buyer is entitled to reimbursement of necessary costs incurred by exercising his/her rights for liability for defects. 

 

Entrepreneur 

The buyer entrepreneur is obliged to lodge a complaint immediately after detecting a defect; otherwise, his/her rights for liability for defects shall cease to exist. 

Delivering products to the buyers in a quantity different from the ordered quantity is considered to be an unimportant breach of the contract in relation to the entrepreneur.

Other rights and duties arising from exercising rights for liability for defects are governed by Act No. 513/1991 Coll., The Commercial Code, as amended.

Withdrawal from the Contract

The customer is entitled to withdraw from the contract without giving any reason within 14 days of receipt of the goods or of entering into a contract on the provision of services.  The withdrawal period is maintained if the consumer gives the seller notice of their right to withdraw from the contract (by post, e-mail, form etc.) no later than on the last day of the withdrawal period.  The customer is entitled to withdraw from the contract relating to the supply of goods, even before the commencement of the period of withdrawal.

Upon the customer’s withdrawal from the contract, the contract is cancelled from the beginning. The seller is obliged to take back the goods or cease to provide services, and reimburse the customer the price paid for the goods or service, or a deposit  put down on the goods or service including expenses related to ordering the goods or service (including postage, transport,  shipping cost, etc. the buyer paid for the delivery of the goods), no later than 14 calendar days from the day of the withdrawal from the contract (however, not before the seller receives the goods or the customer proves the goods have been delivered to the seller).

The seller is not obliged to pay additional costs to the consumer if the consumer expressly chooses another method of delivery than the cheapest common delivery method offered by the seller. The consumer bears the cost related to the returning of the goods only if the product has met quality requirements and has not been faulty. The consumer will send the notice of withdrawal from the contract (not as cash on delivery, as such consignments shall not be accepted) to the address for the withdrawal from the contract or via an email or the form for the withdrawal and the consumer is also obliged to send the goods to the address below, no later than 14 calendar days of the withdrawal from the contract:

If the customer withdraws from the contract via an email or withdrawal form, the seller is obliged to acknowledge the receipt of this form without undue delay.   Within the legal period for withdrawal from the contract without giving a reason (14 calendar days from the receipt of the goods), the customer is entitled to handle the goods to find out their properties and functionality; in the opposite case, the customer is responsible for decreasing the value of the goods. The seller will refund the paid amount of money/price to the customer within a legal 14-day period using the same method of payment as the customer or another method based on agreement with the consumer.

Given the fact that in the event of the withdrawal from the contract, the contract is cancelled from the beginning, the contracting parties will return or substitute all mutually provided performance.

 When returning the goods the value of which is decreased due to such a handling that is beyond the handling required to find out the properties and functionality of the goods, the seller is entitled to require from the customer the payment for such damage.

If the seller and the customer do not agree otherwise, the customer may not withdraw from the contract with the following subject-matter:

a) the provision of the service, if the provision of it started with the customer’s explicit consent and the customer declared that s/he had been duly instructed on the fact that upon the consent s/he loses the right to withdraw from the contract after full provision of the service, and if the service was fully provided, 

 b) the sale of the goods and provision of the service, the price of which depends on the price fluctuation on the financial market that cannot be influenced by the seller and that might occur during the withdrawal period, 

c) the sale of the goods made according to specific requirements of the customer, of the tailor-made goods, or the goods particularly made for one customer, 

d) the sale of the goods subject to fast deterioration and destruction,

e) the sale of the goods closed in a protective package which cannot be given back due to health protection or hygienic reasons and the package of which was damaged after delivery,
