Definition of the lack of conformity

Products delivered by Devialet must be in compliance with the contract. Devialet will be liable for defects during the delivery, but also for all those resulting from the packaging, the assembling instructions or the installation when it is under Devialet’s responsibility.

According to the Directive 1999/44/CE, the product complies with the contract when :

  • The product is appropriate to the use usually expected from a similar good. The product is in accordance (i) when it corresponds to the description of the seller and possesses the qualities presented in sample or models ; (ii) when it possesses the qualities that a consumer can legitimately expect in light of the public statements of Devialet ; or
  • The product possesses the characteristics agreed by the parties or is appropriate to the particular purpose for which the consumer required the product, known and accepted by Devialet.

Implementation of the legal warranty of conformity

The warranty can be implemented within two years after the day the product has been delivered.

The anteriority of the defect is presumed to have existed for 6 (six) months from the delivery date of the good. You, as a consumer, will not have to bring the proof of the defect during 6 (six) months following the physical acquisition of the product. Once the period is expired, the consumer will bear the burden of proof of the defect.

In the event of defect of conformity, Devialet will, at your choice :

  • replace the product ; or
  • repair the product

According to the applicable law to this legal guarantee, Devialet can, in case of considerable difference of cost between both options, impose the one with the lower cost.

  • the replacement or the repair turn out to be impossible ;
  • the replacement or the repair cannot be implemented within the month following the complaint ;

All charges related to the replacement, repair or the termination of the contract will be supported by Devialet.
