8. Warranty and liability for defects
In case of defects, the customer is entitled to have the defective unit repaired by the Swiss general agency during the entire warranty period. The customer will inform Buchmann Direct Electronics, then it will be decided whether the defective unit will be sent via BDE or directly to the general agency. The right to cancellation or reduction is excluded. Defective units will not be collected. The customer must send the defective unit to the designated service centre or hand it in at the designated location at his own expense and risk.
We guarantee a professional, quick repair of the unit.
Warranty repairs are only free of charge for the customer if the defect is a product defect or a manufacturing defect and there are no reasons for exclusion. Reasons for exclusion are: Damage due to the elements, moisture damage (oxidation), impact or fall damage, incorrect manipulation and damage due to external influences. In the event of such a reason for exclusion, a cost estimate of CHF 100 (excl. postage and shipping) will be provided. As a matter of principle, we do not assume any guarantee or liability for smartcards (PayTV) of any kind and their functioning. A return of smartcards is also excluded.
The warranty does not cover wear parts such as batteries, rechargeable batteries and housing parts as well as consumables (ink cartridges, toner, diskettes, print heads, etc.); detailed information can be found in the manufacturer's specifications and the warranty certificate. The guarantee also excludes damage caused by additional devices not recommended by the manufacturer which are connected to the product or used together with the product.
Work without warranty
In the event of defects or faulty operation for which there is no guarantee, the purchaser shall bear the costs of troubleshooting. The use of original accessories and original software is a prerequisite for the proper functioning of a device. Liability for incidental extraordinary or consequential damages (in particular loss of use, loss of time, loss of data, inconvenience, loss of business, loss of profit or loss of savings) arising from the use or impossibility of use is excluded.
The repair service of the Swiss General Agency will automatically prepare a cost estimate as soon as no purchase receipt or warranty document is enclosed with the device. Cost estimates will be issued for non-disassembled or only partially disassembled units. If further defects (e.g. impact, sand, water damage, foreign bodies, etc.) become apparent after the repair has been approved, the repair workshop may interrupt the work and carry out the repair only after a new written order has been issued if the additional expenditure exceeds 10 % of the originally estimated repair value. If the repair is not to be carried out at the customer's request, the item examined need not be restored to its original condition if it is not economically and technically feasible to do so. In order to prepare a cost estimate, it is necessary to intervene in the item. Therefore, if the repair is refused, the unit may not be returned in its original condition. If the customer does not inform Buchmann Direct Electronics AG of a decision regarding the cost estimate within 10 days after receipt of the letter, Buchmann Direct Electronics AG is allowed to return the device and is released from any claims of the customer and the costs incurred will be charged.
