  • the goods are fit for the purpose stated by the seller for their use or for which goods of that kind are usually used,
  • the goods correspond in quality or workmanship to the agreed sample or specimen, if the quality or workmanship was determined according to the agreed sample or specimen,

A change of choice without the seller's consent is only possible if the buyer has requested the repair of a defect that proves to be irremediable.

  9. The Seller or an employee authorised by the Seller shall decide on the complaint immediately, in complex cases within three working days. This time limit does not include the time appropriate to the type of product or service required for a professional assessment of the defect. The complaint, including the removal of the defect, must be settled without delay, at the latest within 30 days from the date of the complaint, unless the seller and the buyer agree on a longer period. The expiry of this period in vain shall be considered a material breach of contract and the buyer shall have the right to withdraw from the purchase contract. The moment when the Buyer's expression of will (exercise of the right from defective performance) reaches the Seller is considered the moment of claiming.
  10. The Seller shall inform the Buyer in writing of the outcome of the complaint.
  11. The right of defective performance does not belong to the buyer if the buyer knew before taking over the thing that the thing has a defect or if the buyer himself caused the defect.
