If, due to the type of product or the method of its installation, the delivery of the goods would be excessively difficult, you must make it available to us in the place where it is located. We undertake to respond to the complaint promptly, no later than within 14 days from the date of its submission.
                  We are responsible for the statutory warranty if a physical defect is found before the expiration of two years from the date of delivery of goods to you.

                    The buyer who is not a consumer at the same time loses the statutory warranty rights if he has not examined the goods in time and in the manner accepted with such items and did not immediately notify the seller about the defect, and if the defect appeared only later – if he did not notify the seller immediately after its finding.
