13. Product guarantee
13.1 We warrant to you that the products will be free from conformity defects for 2 (two) years from the delivery and will therefore comply with the following requirements:
i. subjective conformity (correspondence with description, type, quantity and quality; possession of functionality and characteristics; suitability for the uses requested by you and accepted by us; supply of accessories and instructions; as set out in the purchase contract); and
ii. objective conformity (suitability for purposes for which items of the kind are generally used; delivery of accessories, packaging and instructions that you can reasonably expect to receive; quantity and quality ordinarily found in goods of the same type as the products and that you can reasonably expect, taking into account the nature of the product and what we have stated);
as set out in the sale and purchase agreement.
13.2 Claims for defects of conformity which have not been fraudulently concealed by us shall in any event be barred within 26 (twenty-six) months from delivery of the product.
13.3 Unless proven otherwise, any lack of conformity that appears within 1 (one) year after delivery of the product shall be presumed to have existed on the date of purchase, unless such a presumption is incompatible with the nature of the product or the lack of conformity.
13.4 In the event that the product shows a conformity defect, you shall be entitled to have the product's conformity restored, or to receive a proportional reduction in the price, or to have the purchase agreement terminated as set forth below.
13.5 For the purposes of remedying the lack of conformity of the product, you may choose between repair and replacement, provided that the remedy you choose is not impossible or, compared to the alternative remedy, does not impose disproportionate costs on us having regard to all the circumstances (including the value that the product would have in the absence of the lack of conformity, the extent of the lack of conformity and the possibility of pursuing the alternative remedy without significant inconvenience to you). We shall be entitled to refuse making the products compliant if repair or replacement is impossible or if the costs we would incur in are disproportionate, taking into account all the circumstances.
13.6 Repair or replacement shall be carried out without any costs on you, within a reasonable period of time after we have been informed of the lack of conformity and without significant inconvenience to you, taking into account the nature of the product and the purpose for which you purchased the products. If the lack of conformity is to be remedied by repair or replacement, you shall make them available to us and we shall take back the replaced goods at our expense. You shall not be liable to pay for the normal use of the replaced products in the period preceding the replacement.
13.7 You shall be entitled to a proportional reduction of the price or to termination of the purchase agreement in the event that:
i. we have failed to repair or replace, where possible, or have refused to make the products compliant;
ii. a lack of conformity becomes apparent despite our attempt to bring the products into conformity;
iii. the lack of conformity is so serious as to justify immediate price reduction or termination of the purchase contract; or
iv. we have declared, or it is clear from the circumstances, that we will not restore the conformity of the products within a reasonable period and without significant inconvenience to you.
It is understood that you shall not be entitled to terminate the purchase agreement if the lack of conformity is minor, as proven by us.
13.8 The price reduction shall be proportional to the decrease in value of the product received by you compared to the value it would have had if it had been in conformity.
13.9 If the lack of conformity relates only to some of the items delivered under the contract of sale and there is a cause for termination of the contract, you may terminate the contract only in respect of the non-conforming products and the products purchased together with the non-conforming products, if you cannot reasonably be expected to have an interest in retaining the non-defective products in your possession. If you terminate the contract in whole or in respect of any of the products, you shall return the products to us at our expense and we shall refund the price paid for the products upon receipt of the products or evidence provided by you that you have returned or dispatched the products.
13.10 You may refuse to make payment of any part of the price that is the subject of the contract under which the remedies referred to in this article 13 are exercised until we have fulfilled our obligations under this article 13, without prejudice to the provisions of the applicable law in terms of non-performance exception and concurrence of fact.
13.11 Any refund of money in your favor resulting from the application of this clause 13 shall be made by the same means of payment used at the time of purchase.
13.12 The remedies provided in your favor in this clause 13 shall also be extended to cases of impediment or limitation of use of the products resulting from a restriction arising from the infringement of the rights of third parties, in particular intellectual property rights, without prejudice to the other remedies provided by applicable law.
