WARRANTY CONDITIONS FOR END CUSTOMERS
End customer = consumer
Purchaser = consumer
Manufacturer = RP Climbing s. r. o.
Retailer = dealer, distributor
A warranty period of 24 months applies to all products.
The warranty period begins on the day when the product is received by the purchaser (if the product is not collected personally, the receipt of the product means the moment when the product is picked up from the parcel delivery company) unless the retailer and the purchaser have previously agreed otherwise.
Complaints, including defect elimination, shall be settled without any unnecessary delay within 30 days of the manufacturer receiving the complaint.
The warranty period shall be extended by the time for which the product was under warranty repair.
In the case of product replacement the purchaser shall be given a new warranty period, whose length is determined by the manufacturer in compliance with the provisions of the law in force.
Warranty terminates if the warranty period for the returned product expires before the complaint.
The delivery company is liable for defects caused by it and it is necessary to fill in the delivery company’s complaint form on the spot upon receipt or not to accept delivery.
1. Products under warranty
The consumer shall return the product along with the receipt or invoice or another document (e.g. delivery note) or its copy proving the purchase of the product sold / manufactured by RP Climbing s. r. o.
For the returned product it is necessary to fill in the electronic or printed complaint form that can be found here. If necessary, the consumer may also use a form of their own.
In the complaint form, the consumer shall fill in the mandatory fields and the required solution to the complaint. Otherwise the complaint will be solved in accordance with the law.
Depending on the particular kind of defect the consumer may require – in accordance with the warranty terms – that the faulty product be repaired or replaced by a new one or they may withdraw from the contract and require that the purchase price be returned to them. (No postage or packing charges can be returned to the consumer within the complaint procedure.)
The warranty does not apply to the wear and tear to the product caused by its ordinary use, failure to observe the manufacturer’s instructions included in the instructions manual – especially by its use under such conditions that are not suitable for the particular product (e.g. unsuitable ocun.com temperatures, humidity, chemical environment or mechanical influences of the environment) –, improper treatment or lack of treatment, etc. Neither does the warranty apply if the product has been damaged by the elements or if damaged mechanically (by its falling, violent damage, etc.).
Conditions of accepting products for warranty repair:
The complaint procedure may not be begun without the properly filled-in complaint form.
The retailer may not make any repairs without the prior written consent of the manufacturer until the complaint procedure has been completed. If they do so, they may not demand the reimbursement of the repair costs from the manufacturer.
The product shall be clean, dry, sanitary and complete. Otherwise the manufacturer may return the product to the consumer immediately without beginning the complaint procedure.
Climbing shoes shall not be packed in a plastic bag because they become damp, reek and therefore are not sanitary.
It is suitable to put the product in the original packaging but the purchaser is not obligated to do so.
2. Sending the returned product
The consumer may file a complaint with the retailer or with the manufacturer of the product at its premises:
RP Climbing s.r.o.; Hrnčířská 1557, 295 01 Mnichovo Hradiště; Česká republika, or in the network of shops whose list can be provided by our customer service upon request.
German consumers may return products to the German collecting depot:
Mailbox.com; RP Climbing – ID3694; Dresner Strasse 9; DE-02763 Zittau; Germany.
As a standard the services of contractual delivery companies (GP, Dachser, DPD, etc.) are used. The choice is entirely on the sender.
Returned products for which the complaint has been settled shall immediately be sent to the consumer or to the retailer to whom the consumer returned the product. For large and bulky products it is necessary to make a prior agreement about the way of transport, packing and place of delivery beforehand.
Postage for complaints shall always be paid by the sender.
If the consumer does not accept delivery of the product and does not respond to repeated requests for taking delivery, the manufacturer may charge the consumer additional costs connected with repeated delivery.
3. Exception in the Complaint Procedure
An exception when the product to be returned must not be sent back to the manufacturer /retailer is the case when the product cannot be repaired – should be disposed of – and sending it to RP Climbing’s complaints department for assessment would be overly expensive with regard to the price of the product (this concerns especially purchasers from countries outside the EU, from overseas, etc.)
In such a case the consumer shall fill in the complaints form and attach detailed photo documentation of the product, which must clearly show the defect.
This way of settling a complaint depends entirely on the manufacturer’s assessment and may not be demanded by the consumer without the manufacturer’s consent.
4. Complaints Settlement
The manufacturer shall notify the purchaser /retailer of receiving the returned product and after the complaint is settled, the manufacturer shall notify the purchaser /retailer of sending the product back to them. The manufacturer shall solely use the contact information included in the complaint form.
After proper settlement of the complaint the retailer shall also receive a settled complaint statement. That shall be kept by the purchaser for the warranty period in case another complaint is filed. If it is proved that the complaint is not legitimate (see the conditions in article 1), the manufacturer /retailer may charge the purchaser all the costs incurred in connection with settling the complaint, including postage.
