If the sold Product has a defect, the Customer may submit a statement about a price reduction or withdrawal from the Sales Agreement, unless the Seller immediately and without excessive inconvenience for the Customer will replace the defective Product with a product free from defects or defect removed. This limitation does not apply if the Product has already been replaced or repaired by the Seller or the Seller did not satisfy the obligation to replace the Product with a product free from defects or to remove the defect. The reduced price should remain in such proportion to the price resulting from the Sales Agreement, in which the value of the Product with the defect remains to the value of the Product without a defect. The Customer can not withdraw from the Sales Agreement if the defect is irrelevant. If the customer is a consumer, may instead replace the Product to replace the defect or replace the Product, request removal of the defect, unless bringing the Product to compliance with the Sales Agreement in a manner chosen by the customer is impossible or would require excessive costs in comparison with the method proposed by the Seller. When assessing the excess of costs, the value of the product free from defects, the type and significance of the defect is taken into account, and the inconvenience to which the customer would otherwise be satisfied is taken into account.
If only some of the Products sold are defective and can be disconnected from Products free from defects, without prejudice to both parties, the Customer's right to withdraw from the contract is limited to Defective Products. 2) Group: repair / replacement
If the Product sold has a defect, the Customer may request replacement of the Product free of defects or removal of the defect. The seller is obliged to replace the defective product with one free of defects or to remove the defect within a reasonable time without excessive inconvenience to the customer. The Seller may refuse to remedy the Client's request if it is impossible to bring the Defective Product into conformity with the Sales Agreement in the manner chosen by the Customer or if it would require excessive costs compared to the second possible way to bring it into conformity with the Sales Agreement.
