10 Warranty, complaints, returns
We undertake, at our option, either to replace all products supplied by us free of charge, or to refund the invoice value of articles that cannot be replaced when a prior inspection by ourselves shows that defects in the workmanship or materials make the products unsuitable for their intended purpose. The replaced items are our property and must be returned, carriage paid to Nunningen, in the same condition. We shall not recognise any other claims. The delivered goods shall be deemed to have been accepted if the buyer does not raise any complaints, giving reasons and delivery details, within 14 days of receipt of the goods.
