In the case that the warranty period has been prolonged, the warranty claims are governed only by Warranty Claim Guidelines.
The warranty conditions follow Seller’s Warranty Claim Guidelines and the valid legislation of the Czech Republic. The invoice serves as a warranty certificate. We ask Buyer to check the parcel in the presence of the carrier and in case of damage to the parcel to make a claim directly to the carrier. The carrier will write a protocol with the receiver about the damage found and the parcel will be returned to the sender. Buyer is entitled to refuse to take over a parcel which is not in accordance with Purchase Agreement (e. g. the parcel is uncomplete or damaged). If Buyer accepts a damaged parcel, it is necessary to describe the damage in carrier’s certificate of transfer.
It is necessary to notify of the incomplete or damaged parcel immediately by email on the address email@example.com, to write a protocol with the carrier and send it without undue delay by email or post to Seller. An additional claim of incompleteness or exterior damage to the parcel gives Seller the possibility to prove that there isn’t any discrepancy with Purchase Agreement.
The place to make a claim is the store of Seller: papelote, Vojtěšská 9, 110 00 Praha 1.
The Buyer can send the damaged goods for warranty claim by a transport service to the above address. The package should be visibly marked “REKLAMACE” (warranty claim) and contain: the claimed goods (including all accessories), we recommend to enclose a copy of the invoice, detailed description of the defect and Buyer’s sufficient contact details (return address and telephone number). Identification of the origin and defect of the goods is not possible without the above information. Buyer will support the validity of the warranty claim by providing the invoice. In case that there was a warranty claim already in the past on the same goods, Buyer will also provide a proof of warranty claim. There has to be the same order number on the relevant documents (an invoice or a proof of warranty claim).
The warranty does not apply to damage caused by:
- careless, improper or forceful mechanical handling
- using the goods in unsuitable conditions because of temperature, dustiness or moisture, if specified by the producer
- the goods has been damaged by natural elements or force majeure.
The goods handed over for warranty claim will be tested only for the defect stated by Buyer (in the warranty claim form, on an enclosed paper with a description of the defect). In case that it is found out that the cause of problems are not the claimed goods but Buyer’s mishandling, the warranty claim will be dismissed. In case that Buyer agrees with a paid reparation, such a reparation will be charged according to the up-to-date and valid price list. Seller is responsible for hidden defects which appear when the goods are being taken over by Buyer or during warranty period.
