Warranty & Guarantee Conditions
Product illustrations do not always have to match the appearance of the delivered products. We shall fulfill warranty claims of the customer in the event of a remediable defect at our discretion either by replacement, repair within a reasonable period or price reduction. In the case of an exchange, the replacement part will be shipped free of charge. The exchange itself is to be carried out by the customer at his own expense.
Claims for damages by the customer aimed at rectifying the defect can only be asserted if Bizibits Sales GmbH is in default with the fulfillment of the warranty claims. The fulfillment of possible warranty claims is carried out according to the BIO-Stefan warranty conditions. In accordance with §§ 377 f of the Austrian Commercial Code (UGB), the goods must be inspected immediately after delivery, but within 6 working days at the latest. Defects discovered in the course of such inspection shall be notified to us in writing without delay, but no later than 3 working days after their discovery, stating the nature and extent of the defect. Corresponding defects must already have been present at the time of handover.
Bizibits Sales GmbH may request additional photos and evidence for more precise identification from the customer. Hidden defects are to be reported in writing immediately, at the latest, however, within 3 working days after their discovery. If a notice of defect is not made or not made in time, the goods are considered approved.
All BIO Stefan products are packed in boxes for self-assembly (incl. photo assembly instructions) and are delivered disassembled and not assembled. Please note that there may be minimal color variations in spare parts and reorders due to different material batches.
The following terms and conditions shall apply to the exclusion of any general terms and conditions of the purchaser for all our deliveries and services, including future deliveries and services.
