Repair services performed by r2p showing a deficiency within the warranty period of 6 months after return which has been present at the time of transfer of risk already will be corrected within reasonable time or if decided by r2p performed again free of charge. If the correction or a new repair fails, you may demand the cancellation of the contract or reduction of the repair costs. This also applies, if despite a reasonable period of grace r2p is in delay regarding the correction/new repair. Damage claims are excluded unless we are liable for intent or gross negligence.
7. If you are in delay with the approval, the risk shall pass to you. We are not responsible for an accidental loss of the repair item. The risk shall pass to you as soon as we have dispatched the repair item. In case of rejection of an offer or after the expiry of the validity of an offer of 6 weeks, you instruct us to recycle the item sent by you. If this does not correspond to your wishes, please arrange for a prompt collection or inform us of your forwarding carrier with the freight account to be used.
8. If r2p has to dispose of the device, the service flat of €160.- rate will be invoiced without any deductions.
