If the purchase of the goods is already a subject of a contract, the Contracting Parties have agreed that the time for exercising the rights of defective performance is reduced to half of the statutory period in accordance with the provisions of Section § 2168 of the Civil Code.
The previous paragraph shall not apply:
a) for items sold at a lower price due to a defect because of which the lower price was agreed,

The consumer can bring the claimed goods in person every weekday between 7:00am and 15:20pm or send the goods to the above-mentioned addresses. Goods cannot be shipped using the cash on delivery method, such shipments cannot be accepted by the seller. In the case of shipping the goods, the consumer is obliged to choose such method of transportation, so that the goods are not damaged or otherwise spoiled by the transport, in particular the Seller is obliged to protect the goods by a firm and intact packaging.

For a quicker resolution of the matter, it is recommended to include the name, surname, address of the consumer, as well as telephone number and email address.
The claims of the consumer in the application of defects arise from the applicable legal regulations, particularly law No. 89/2012 Coll. of the Civil Code, as amended, in particular as follows:
If the product does not have a characteristic set out in Section § 2161 of the Civil Code, the consumer may also require the supply of a new item without defects if this is not disproportionate due to the nature of the defect, however if the defect relates only to a part of the product, the consumer may only demand a repair of that specific part of the product; if it is not possible, the consumer may withdraw from the contract. However, if exchange for a new product is disproportionate considering the nature of the defect, especially if the defect can be repaired without undue delay, the consumer shall be entitled to a free removal of the defect.
The consumer is entitled to receive a new product or a replacement of a faulty part of the product even in the case of repairable defect, if the consumer cannot use the product properly due to a repeated appearance of a defect even after repair or due to appearance of more defects. In such case, the consumer also has the right to withdraw from the contract.
If the consumer does not withdraw from the contract or if the consumer does not exercise the right to a delivery of a new product without defects, right for a replacement of the product’s part or repairing of its part, the consumer may request a reasonable discount. The consumer has the right to a reasonable discount even in case where the Seller cannot deliver a brand new product without defects, replacement of its part or a repair of its part, as well as when the Seller fails to repair the defect within reasonable time or in case where scheduling of the replacement or repair would cause serious difficulties to the consumer.
The right deriving from a faulty performance of the consumer does not apply if the consumer knew before the takeover that the product was defective or if the consumer had caused the defect himself/herself. The Seller is also not liable for any damages resulting from improper use of the product, or for damage cause by external elements and mishandling. Warranty also doesn’t apply for such defects. A shorter product life cannot be considered a defect and is not a reason for a complaint.
The Contracting Parties have agreed that the jurisdiction of courts of the Czech Republic is effective and responsible for the settlement of any disputes between the Seller and the Buyer. Any disputes between the Seller and the consumer may also be dealt with by an out-of-court procedure. In such case, the consumer may contact an out-of-court dispute resolution body, such as the Czech Trade Inspection Authority, or resolve the dispute online through the dedicated ODR platform. Before an out-of-court settlement of the dispute is reached, the Seller recommends the Buyer to use the email address firstname.lastname@example.org to resolve the situation.
