§ 4. Complaints
- The Seller shall deliver the Goods without any physical or legal defects. Pursuant to Article 556 and subsequent articles of the Civil Code, the Customer is the beneficiary of implied warranty. The Seller is liable under implied warranty if the Goods sold have physical or legal defects.
- If the Goods have a defect, the Customer may request a price reduction or rescind the sale agreement, unless the Seller, immediately and without undue inconvenience for the Customer, exchanges the defective Goods for ones that are defect-free or immediately removes the defect. This limitation does not apply if the Goods have already been exchanged or repaired by the Seller or if the Seller has not fulfilled the obligation to exchange the Goods for defect-free ones or remove the defect.
- If the Customer is a Consumer, instead of the defect removal proposed by the Seller, the Customer may request that the Goods be exchanged for ones that are defect-free, or instead of exchanging the Goods, request that the defect be removed, unless bringing the Goods into conformity with the agreement as chosen by the Customer is impossible or would require excessive costs in comparison with the manner proposed by the Seller. The Customer may not rescind the agreement if the defect is insignificant.
- If the Goods have a defect, the Customer may request that the Goods be exchanged for ones that are defect-free one or that the defect be removed. The Seller shall exchange the defective Goods for defect-free Goods or remove the defect within a reasonable time, without causing undue inconvenience to the Customer. The Seller may refuse to comply with the Customer’s request if the defective Goods cannot be brought into conformity with the agreement in the manner chosen by the Customer, or would require excessive costs as compared to the other possible way of bringing the Goods into conformity with the agreement. In the event that the Customer is a trader, the Seller may refuse to exchange the Goods for defect-free goods or remove the defect also when the costs of meeting this obligation exceed the price of the sold Goods.
- The Customer who exercises their rights under implied warranty shall deliver defective Goods to the Seller at the Seller’s expense.
- The warranty period is two years (the warranty covers physical defects discovered within two years from the date of receipt of the Goods), subject to the provisions of Article 568(6) of the Civil Code.
- In the event that the Seller, on the basis of the warranty provisions, supplies defect-free Goods to the Customer, the Seller may at the same time request that the defective Goods be returned.
- Complaints are handled on the basis of the proof of purchase presented by the Customer.
- Complaints should be addressed to the Seller. Complaints can also be submitted by traditional or electronic mail, to the address Sklep Otwarte Klatki, ul. Henryka Sienkiewicza 128/10, 50-347 Wrocław or [email protected], respectively.
- In the complaint, the Customer should indicate:
a) the description of the defect,
b) the requested method of settlement of the complaint, and
c) the Customer’s contact details (first name, last name, address, e-mail address).
Along with the complaint, the Customer should deliver the Goods concerned. The Seller reserves the right to contact the Customer in order to request additional information if the information provided by the Customer in the complaint is incomplete, rendering handling of the complaint impossible.
- If the Customer, being a Consumer, requested that the Goods be replaced or the defect be removed, or requested a price reduction, specifying the amount by which the price is to be reduced, and the Seller has not responded to this request within 14 (fourteen) days, the request shall be deemed accepted by the Seller.
- The Customer shall be notified of the manner of handling the complaint by e-mail sent to the Customer’s email address indicated in the complaint, and in case that the e-mail address has not been provided – to the Customer’s postal address.
- If the Customer is a Consumer, after the complaint procedure has been completed, the Customer may have recourse to an out-of-court complaint and redress mechanisms. In particular, the Consumer may have recourse to mediation procedures handled by the Provincial Inspectorates of the Trade Inspectorate or permanent consumer arbitration courts operating at Provincial Inspectorates of the Trade Inspectorate. Detailed information on out-of-court complaint and redress mechanisms, as well as the rules of access to these procedures are available at the offices and on the websites of district (municipal) consumer advocates, social organisations whose statutory tasks include consumer protection, and Provincial Inspectorates of the Trade Inspectorate. Important information in this respect can also be obtained on the website of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection: www.uokik.gov.pl. In the event of a dispute involving a Consumer, the ODR internet platform, which is available at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/, may also serve as an out-of-court mechanism of dispute resolution: (the Seller’s e-mail address for the purpose of contact via the ODR Internet platform is as follows: [email protected]). The use of out-of-court complaint and redress mechanisms is voluntary and can only take place if both parties to the dispute agree. The above provision is for informational purposes and does not imply the Seller’s consent to participate in out-of-court complaint and redress (dispute resolution) procedures.
