If the Products cannot be procured, then AVC can, without liability of any kind, cancel the offer/order confirmation for these products. As soon as AVC becomes aware that the Products cannot be procured, AVC must inform the Customer of this within a reasonable pe-riod of time.

6. Delivery time

If the delivery time cannot be adhered to, AVC will at-tempt to mitigate the inconvenience to the Customer as best as possible. However, AVC assumes no liability for compensation for any delay.
6.2 If the delivery time is exceeded by more than 90 days, and the delay is solely attributable to AVC or conditions under AVC’s control, then the Cus-tomer is en-titled to terminate the Agreement, with reasonable notice, by no-tifying AVC in writing.

10.4 A 3-month consumer protection legislation period is offered for the installa-tion of spare parts and other replaced Products.
10.5 In order to claim the goods/services delivered are defective (hereinafter referred to as a “defect”), the Customer must promptly submit a written complaint to AVC once the fault is detected.

10.7 If the Customer wants to cancel the sale, the Customer must return the goods to AVC in the original packaging and at the Customer’s own expense and risk.
10.8 Should AVC choose to rectify a defect, then AVC is obliged to, with the speed the situation requires and at their own cost, rectify the relied on de-fects in the delivered goods.
10.9 If AVC does not rectify the defect with the speed the situation requires, then the Customer may give AVC, in writing, a final and reasonable deadline to rectify the defect. The deadline must constitute a minimum of 30 days.
10.10 If the defect is not rectified by the end of the deadline, then the Custom-er is entitled to a proportional reduction in price that corresponds to the size of the error in relation to a fault-free provision of services. If the defect is of decisive importance to the Customer’s use of the delivered goods, then the Customer is entitled, after the end of the deadline, to terminate the Agree-ment with respect to the defective Product or Service.
