The Provider reserves the right to amend these Complaints Procedure and other related documents at any time and, if it does so, to publish these changes on the website without undue delay.

If he finds mechanical damage to the packaging of the goods, the user is obliged to check the condition of the goods and in case of damage to make a record of damage, which he will sign together with the carrier's representative.
Warranty and claims
Warranty service is provided by the provider. The provider is responsible for the damage that the goods have when taken over by the user and during the warranty period. The warranty period is 24 months and starts from the date of receipt of the goods by the user. The warranty does not apply to normal wear and tear of the goods caused by its use and to goods purchased after the discount agreed due to the defect.
If the user finds defects in the goods for which the provider is responsible, he is obliged to file a complaint with the provider without undue delay, while the complaint must be notified to the provider by e-mail to email@example.com or by phone at +421 947 917 661, within 48 hours from the receipt of the goods.
The user can make a complaint by mail (as a registered item, not as a cash on delivery) or directly in the provider's stores designated for this purpose, which are listed on the website. The user is obliged to enclose all documents related to the purchase of goods - especially the invoice and confirmation of receipt of goods from the carrier - and state the reason for the complaint and a description of the defects of the goods. The costs of transporting the claimed goods from the user to the provider are borne by the user.
The provider will handle the complaint within 30 days of its application and receipt of the claimed goods. The provider will send a confirmation of the complaint to the user by e-mail without undue delay upon receipt. The user will be informed about the result of the complaint immediately after the end of the complaint procedure by e-mail, through which he will receive a document on the handling of the complaint (complaint protocol).
After the expiration of the period for handling the complaint, the user has the right to withdraw from the contract or has the right to exchange the goods for new goods.
The period from the exercise of the right from liability for defects to the time when the user was obliged to take over the goods after the end of the complaint does not count towards the warranty period. If the goods are exchanged, the warranty period begins to run again from the receipt of the new goods.
The user is entitled to reimbursement of the necessary costs incurred in connection with the exercise of the right of liability for defects. This right must be exercised by the provider no later than one month after the expiry of the period during which the defects are to be alleged; otherwise the right expires.
In the case of defects that can be rectified, the user has the right to have them rectified free of charge, in good time and properly. The Provider is obliged to eliminate the defects without undue delay, no later than within 30 days from the date of the complaint.
Instead of eliminating defects, the user may request the exchange of goods (the same), if the provider does not incur disproportionate costs due to the price of the goods or the severity of the defects.
The provider can always replace the defective goods with perfect ones instead of eliminating the defects, if this does not cause the user serious problems.
If the user is unable to use the goods properly due to the recurrence of the defect after repair or due to a larger number of defects, he has the right to exchange the goods or the right to withdraw from the contract, i. the right to a refund of the purchase price (the user has the right to choose).
In the case of defects which cannot be eliminated and which prevent the goods from being properly used as goods without defects, the user has the right to exchange the goods or has the right to withdraw from the contract (the user has the right to choose).
In the case of other irreparable defects (i.e. those that do not prevent the goods from being properly used as defect-free goods), the user is entitled to a reasonable discount on the price of the goods.
