For each Product purchased by a Consumer Customer, the latter will freely benefit of the Legal Conformity Guarantee (“Legal Guarantee”) in accordance with articles 128 and following of the Consumer Code.
The Seller’s Legal Guarantee applies to defects of conformity that occur within 24 months of the date of delivery of the Product and are reported by the Customer within two months of the date of the discovery of the defects, in accordance with article 132 of the Consumer Code.
It should be noted that a defect of conformity exists when one of the following situations occurs: (i) the product is unsuitable for the use it is intended to serve on a regular basis; (ii) it does not conform to the description or does not have the qualities promised by the seller; (iii) it does not offer the usual quality and performance of goods of the same type; (iv) is not suitable for the particular use intended by the consumer if brought to the attention of the seller at the time of purchase and accepted by the seller.
The Consumer Customer will in any case be entitled to the rights deriving from the above-mentioned Legal Guarantee, irrespective of the subscription to other conventional, free or paid, warranties.
Remedies available to the Consumer Customer
If a lack of conformity occurs, the Consumer Customer may request, if he/she decides, to the repair of the Product or its replacement, unless the remedy requested is objectively impossible or overly burdensome with respect to the other, in accordance with the provisions of article 130, paragraph 4 of the Consumer Code.
In particular, a remedy is to be considered overly burdensome if it imposes on the seller unreasonable expenses compared to the other, taking into account: (i) the value that the good would have if there was no lack of conformity; (ii) the extent of the lack of conformity; (iii) the possibility that the alternative remedy may be experienced without significant disadvantages for the Customer.
Boeris Bikes sas, in order to offer a high-level and absolutely transparent post-sales service, voluntarily undertakes to repair or replace the defective Product within 60 (sixty) days from the request for assistance in warranty. Alternatively, the Consumer Customer may request, if he/she decides to, a reasonable price reduction or the Contract termination, if one of the following situations occurs: (i) the repair or replacement is impossible or excessively expensive; (ii) Boeris Bikes sas has failed to repair or replace the Product within 60 (sixty) days; (iii) the replacement or repair previously carried out has had significant disadvantages. A minor lack of conformity for which it was not possible or it is excessively expensive to experience the remedies offered by repair or replacement, does not entitle to terminate the contract.
Boeris Bikes sas reserves the right to replace or repair the Product within 60 days for the countries of the European Community. For non-CEE countries, this commitment will not be valid with the set deadlines.
After Boeris Bikes sas has received the complaint of lack of conformity, it reserves the right to offer any possible remedies to the Customer Customer, with the following effects:
(i) if the Consumer Customer has already requested a specific remedy, Boeris Bikes sas will be obliged to enforce it, with the necessary consequences referring to the end of the 60 (sixty) days period mentioned above, unless the Consumer Customer accepts the alternative remedy proposed;
(ii) if the Customer has not already requested a specific remedy, he must accept or reject the proposal by choosing one of the remedies provided for by law.
Cases of exclusion of the Legal Guarantee
The Consumer Customer will not be entitled to repair, replace, reduce the price or terminate the Contract in respect to any Product or any component identified as defective if, unless otherwise provided for and in accordance with the applicable law:
(i) the Products have been repaired or altered by persons other than the manufacturer, Boeris Bikes sas, or any other authorized person; and/or
(ii) the lack of conformity of the Product or Products has occurred beyond the 2 (two) years period after the delivery of the Product itself and/or the relative repair or replacement of the defective Product or Products has been filed 2 (two) months after the discovery of the defect; and/or
(iii) defects are due (in part or solely) to misuse, improper use, or storage, or maintenance, or installation, carried out by persons other than the manufacturer, Boeris Bikes sas, or any other authorized person – or failure to follow the instructions provided by manufacturer, or other instructions provided by Boeris Bikes sas together with the delivered Products; and/or
(iv) at the moment of the conclusion of the Contract, the Consumer Customer was aware of the defect and could not ignore it with ordinary diligence; and/or
(v) the lack of conformity derived from instructions or materials provided by the Consumer Customer.
Operating Modes to Claim the Legal Guarantee
The Legal Guarantee shall be enforceable directly against Boeris Bikes sas, if the latter acts as defective Products Seller, and specifically in the case of sale of Products for which the related Contract stipulates the home delivery of the Product (at the address indicated by the Customer), at the carrier’s warehouse, or at the Boeris Bikes Sales Point selected by the Customer in the Purchase Order.
The Legal Guarantee can be enforced:
(i) At the Sales Point. The Customer -with the Product and the documentation that certifies his purchase- can go directly to the Boeris Bikes sas Sales Point where the defective Products have been collected and contact the staff who will be available to provide all the necessary assistance related to this case.
The staff of the aforementioned Sales Point will take in charge the Product for which the Customer complains of a defect of conformity and will provide him with the “repair sheet”, a document certifying the taking in charge of the Product, which contains all the indications and references about the procedure to be followed to benefit, if applicable, of the Legal Guarantee.
