A longer guarantee period than the one referred to in the previous sentence is valid solely in the event that TOPMET LIGHT makes an express statement in this regard.
1.2. The Guarantor guarantees that the subject matter of the contract is in working order and that the declared technical parameters will be maintained throughout the guarantee period.
1.3. Under the guarantee, the Guarantor undertakes to:
- remove physical defects free of charge or
- supply the subject matter of the contract that is free from defects or
- refund the paid price
1.4. The choice of one of the guarantee obligations specified in Point 3 is up to the Guarantor. In particular, the Guarantor represents that the Guarantor will refund the price of the goods to the Purchaser in the event that the repair or replacement of the goods entails excessive costs or is hindered or turns out to be inexpedient for other reasons.
1.5. Liability under the guarantee covers solely defects revealed during the guarantee period, resulting from causes inherent in the subject matter of the contract. The guarantee protection does not cover:
- damage caused by usage, storage, assembly or disassembly inconsistent with the operation manual or principles of reasonable technical knowledge, unless the assembly or disassembly was carried out by the Guarantor

- lumen decrease in lm (applicable to LED strips)
- mechanical damage
- malfunction resulting from external circumstances not attributable to the Guarantor (e.g. parameters of the purchaser’s electricity network, temperature that may harm the product)
- consequences of force majeure
TOPMET LIGHT represents that light parameters expected by the Purchaser (in particular when it comes to the colour, luminous flux, colour repeatability and colour rendering index) that are higher than those declared by the manufacturer do not constitute a basis for starting the guarantee procedure and do not mean that the subject matter of the contract is inconsistent with the contract.
1.6. The guarantee service shall be provided by the Guarantor in the Guarantor’s registered office with the possibility of making the repair at the Purchaser’s site, provided that it results from the agreement between the parties or that as far as the Guarantor is aware, repair in the Guarantor’s registered office is impossible or inexpedient.

The exclusion of liability applies in particular to any indirect or direct losses related to defective spare parts, as well as the loss of profits that the purchaser or a third party could have gained had the Guarantor not supplied the Purchaser with defective products.
1.12. Disputes arising from this guarantee will be settled by a court of general jurisdiction having territorial jurisdiction over the registered office of the Guarantor.
1.13. The above mentioned guarantee is valid in the European Union. For the avoidance of doubt, the Guarantor represents that the guarantee is valid solely in relations between TOPMET LIGHT and the direct Purchaser of the product covered by the guarantee.

The Ordering Party needs to promptly notify Topmet that the order is incomplete or that the goods are damaged, preferably on the delivery date, but not later than within the next 7 business days.
2.6. In the event that the order is incomplete or the goods are damaged in transport, the Ordering Party needs to draw up a damage report during the collection of the package or add a relevant note to the stock issue confirmation (WZ document).

2.12. Topmet Light stipulates the right to collect damaged or incomplete goods as a condition for making a positive decision on the complaint.
