|(1)||The warranty is based on the warranty claims of a consumer in accordance with the statutory provisions. If the Customer is an entrepreneur, the legal provisions apply with the following modifications:|
- Only the Supplier’s own information regarding the quality of the goods is binding, not public promotions, statements and other advertising by the Supplier.
- The Customer is obliged to immediately check the goods for deviations in quality and quantity and to report any defects within seven days of receipt of the goods. Timely notice is sufficient to meet the deadline. This also applies to hidden defects from the moment they are detected. In the event of breach of duty to investigate and to give notice of defects, the right to warranty is excluded.
- In case of defects, the Supplier shall provide warranty in the form of rectification or replacement. In case of rectification of the defects, the Customer shall not be required to bear the increased costs incurred by shipping the goods to a location other than the place of delivery, provided that the shipment does not correspond to the intended use of the goods.
- The Seidl Group guarantees that the software or hardware complies with the specifications as set out in the respective offer at the time that they are handed over/made available. The burden of proof for the existence of defects lies with the Customer if they are an entrepreneur. The presumption of defectiveness under Sec. 924 of the Austrian Civil Code (ABGB) is excluded vis-à-vis entrepreneurs. The Seidl Group shall not be liable for defects after goods are handed over/made available that occur due to a failure to install updates.
- If the subsequent improvement fails, the Customer may either demand a price reduction or withdraw from the contract.
- The warranty period is one year from delivery of the goods.
