Otherwise, the risk of damage to the goods passes over on the delivery of the goods and the Buyer is not obligated to take over the goods in the case of an evident damage of the goods or of its packaging. The established damage has to be recorded by the Buyer on the spot or it has to be included in the transportation note of the carrier (record) and they are to inform the Seller without any unnecessary delay.

6.4 The Buyer has the right to assert the right from the defect that appears in consumer goods within twenty-four (24) months since their takeover, unless a longer period is stated on the goods or on its packaging.

However, if this is not in due proportion with respect to the character of the defect, especially if the defect can be removed without any unnecessary delay, the Buyer has the right to the removal of the defect free-of-charge. The Buyer has the right to the delivery of a new thing or to the exchange of a part even in the case of a removable defect, in case they cannot use the thing properly due to a repeated defect occurrence after its repair or due to a greater number of defects. In such case, the Buyer also has the right to withdraw from the agreement.
