Quality assurance

The Bottero Ski company is an authorized dealer of all the brands and products present in its stores and online shop. Each product sold by Bottero Ski srl to a "consumer" buyer is supported by the legal guarantee on consumer goods , which covers conformity defects that appear within 24 months from the date of delivery of the goods.

The Consumer Code (Legislative Decree no. 206/2005) in Articles 128-135 provides for the obligation for the seller to guarantee consumers the conformity of the purchased goods with the characteristics and qualities offered. The seller is therefore responsible for any lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery of the goods for all products sold in its stores.

The lack of conformity exists when the product:

  • it is not suitable for the use to which it must normally be used;
  • does not conform to the description or does not possess the qualities presented by the seller;
  • it does not offer the usual qualities and performances of a good of the same type;
  • it is not suitable for the particular use desired by the consumer, if brought to the attention of the seller at the time of purchase and accepted by the seller.

The Legal Guarantee exclusively protects the "consumer", that is the natural person who, having purchased a product, acts for purposes unrelated to any entrepreneurial, commercial, craft or professional activity carried out and therefore does not apply to products purchased with invoice and P. VAT from professionals and businesses.

The legal guarantee has a duration of 2 years from the date of delivery of the goods, regardless of the existence of any other guarantees issued by the manufacturer and their duration. The lack of conformity covered by the legal guarantee that occurs within this period must in any case be reported by the consumer within 2 months from the date of discovery of the defect Unless proven otherwise, it is assumed that the lack of conformity that occurs within 6 months of delivery of the goods already existed on that date unless this hypothesis is incompatible with the nature of the good or with the nature of the lack of conformity.

In the event of a lack of conformity duly reported within the terms, the consumer has the right to have the seller restored, without charge, the conformity of the goods by repair or replacement, or to an adequate reduction in the price or termination of the contract. In particular, the consumer has the right:

  • to repair or replace the goods, at his choice, unless the requested remedy is impossible or excessively burdensome compared to the other;
  • the remedy requested is "excessively burdensome" when it imposes unreasonable costs on the seller compared to the alternatives, taking into consideration the value of the intact good, the extent of the defect and the possibility of resorting to alternative remedies without significant inconvenience for the consumer;
  • in the alternative (where the first two remedies are impossible or excessively burdensome, or have not been carried out within reasonable terms, or previous repairs or replacements have caused significant inconvenience to the consumer), to request a reduction in the price or the termination of the contract.

The consumer can assert his rights regarding the legal guarantee of conformity by contacting the seller of the goods directly - that is Bottero Ski Srl.

n addition to the Legal Guarantee of Conformity to which the seller is directly required, the goods can also be covered by a "conventional manufacturer's guarantee", which is precisely the manufacturer's autonomous commitment, assumed towards the customer, to replace, repair , or otherwise intervene on the good, if it does not correspond to the conditions set out in the warranty declaration.The manufacturer's conventional warranty, whether paid or free, does not replace or limit the Legal Guarantee of Conformity described above, for which the customer can choose whether to use one or the other; this conventional warranty may have a different duration and extension than the Legal Compliance Warranty, as specified in the instruction booklet of the individual product purchased.

To receive warranty assistance on the products sold, you can contact Customer Service at +39 017192275 or by e-mail address assistenza@botteroski.com . If it emerges that the problem derives from a lack of conformity, a case will be opened in your name and you will be assigned a code for the free repair or replacement of the defective product under warranty.
