Terms & Conditions
The following general terms and conditions apply exclusively to the business relationship between Red Lychee and the customer. Red Lychee sells its goods exclusively to end consumers and in quantities that are considered normal for an average household.
Prices in the Red Lychee Online Shop are always given in Euros and include VAT. The VAT rate and proportion is always shown on the invoice.
3. Concluding the contract
The presentation of goods in the Red Lychee Online shop only represents a non-binding appeal to order goods from Red Lychee.
By ordering from Red Lychee, the customer makes a binding offer to enter into a sales contract.
The offer is accepted by Red Lychee and the sales contract concluded only at the time of delivery of the ordered goods, which begins when the package is transferred to the courier. Red Lychee informs the customer by e-mail that the ordered goods have been transferred to the courier.
The automatically generated e-mail confirming receipt of the order does not constitute acceptance of the offer by Red Lychee, but merely documents the fact that Red Lychee has received the order.
If Red Lychee realises when processing an order that the ordered goods are unavailable, the customer shall be informed by e-mail.
Red Lychee delivers to the order address provided by the customer. Goods can be delivered to the following countries in Europe: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom. Red Lychee shall fulfil the order within 30 days of the day after the customer places the order, unless a different delivery date has been agreed. Order won’t be shipped until the funds have cleared in Red Lychee account.
5.1. Transfer of ownership
Ownership of the goods sold, including their accessories, is transferred to the customer only when the full price of the goods and any costs have been paid.
Before payment has been received, the customer is not permitted to dispose of the goods in any way (selling the goods, renting them out, pledging them…) or to make changes to the goods that reduce their value.
In the event of a pledge or notification of a payment order issued by a third party, the customer shall undertake to inform the seller immediately and to inform the third party of the reservation of ownership clause set out in these terms and conditions.
5.2. Appropriation of goods sold
5.2.1 All complaints regarding non-conformity or visible defects must be made to the seller by registered post, fax or e-mail within 3 (three) days of the delivery date at the latest. Please use the following contact details:
Red Lychee Online Shop
ul. Piastowska 6/7
The relevance and exact nature of the alleged defect must be specified in detail so that Red Lychee can check the delivered goods.
If a complaint is not received within this period, the goods shall be deemed to have been accepted without reservation in accordance with the provisions set out in these terms and conditions.
5.2.2 If a non-conformity or visible defect is found, Red Lychee shall either replace or repair the goods in question or issue a refund in the form of a credit note for the invoiced amount.
5.3. Warranties and hidden defects
5.3.1 If the goods are found to contain a manufacturing defect or material defects that affect their intended use, Red Lychee shall replace the goods or item found to be defective within a reasonable period of time after the delivery date, excluding any other claim for damages.
5.3.2 This warranty takes effect on the date the goods were delivered.
5.3.3 This warranty is terminated by law if the owner changes the material or the goods, if the goods are used for a purpose other than that for which it was intended, if changes have been made to the goods without the consent of Red Lychee or if they have been repaired by a third party or the customer himself in the meantime.
In any case, the warranty shall expire by law two years after the date of delivery.
5.3.4 On penalty of forfeiting the warranty, the customer shall undertake to inform Red Lychee of any defect in writing immediately and no later than two months after the defect was discovered. The nature and scope of the defect must be described as accurately as possible and Red Lychee must be invited to check the defective goods.
5.3.5 This warranty covers the replacement of parts found to be defective, within normal, foreseeable and acceptable limits, and the adjustments necessary in connection with this replacement.
To that effect, this warranty does not cover repairs required as a result of the goods being used in a way that deviates from that described in the user instructions, incompetence or negligence on the part of the customer or a maintenance defect.
5.3.6 Red Lychee’s intervention under the guise of the warranty does not constitute an extension of the warranty, but represents an admission of liability on its part.
Equally, returning material to Red Lychee, with its prior consent, does not constitute recognition on its part of the defectiveness or non-conformity of the material that has been returned.
