6.1 The products delivered by the seller comply with existing standards and specifications. To validate warranty, the buyer must notify the seller about the defect within 7 days of receipt. If the defect is likely to generate damage, the notification must describe the defect precisely and in detail. Buyers lose their right to repair if they do not notify the seller about the defect within the deadlines and conditions specified in this clause.
6.2 Warranty means the replacing or repairing the defective product or component by its services free of charge. No liability for a compensatory payment for any reason whatsoever can be accepted. Before replacement under warranty, the seller must approve the course of action to be taken. The buyer loses the right to replacement or repair if the defective part is not returned to the seller within 7 days. Shipping and carriage expenses are excluded from this warranty. Buyers are responsible for their own dismantling and assembly operations for all equipment other than the product concerned.
- Warranty does not cover defects caused by incorrect assembly, defective maintenance, abnormal use or storage, normal wear or assemblies in environments, which do not suit the product. The seller cannot accept liability for assembly operations that do not comply with the recommendations for fitment and use.
- The maximum total amount assumed by the seller under warranty cannot exceed 100% (one hundred percent) of the amount received in payment for the order in question.
Unless otherwise stipulated, the seller is not responsible for loss of production, loss of profit, loss of use, failure to sell nor any other consecutive, economic or indirect loss whatsoever by the buyer.

7.2 The Seller undertakes to use its reasonable endeavors to dispatch the Goods on an agreed delivery date, but does not guarantee to do so. Time of delivery shall not be of the essence of the contract.
7.3 The Seller shall not be liable to the Buyer for any loss or damage whether arising directly or indirectly from the late delivery or short delivery of the Goods. If short delivery does take place, the Buyer undertakes not to reject the Goods but to accept the Goods delivered as part performance of the contract.
