4.5 Product warranty
The warranty provided by Merinito for its customers for textiles is 30 days from the date of purchase for faults not attributable to the consumer. The purchased product is not a durable product and should be used and cared for according to the maintenance recommendations. The warranty covers the lack of conformity which exists at the time of purchase, where the normal wear of the product is not covered. The warranty provided does not affect the consumer's rights under European law. Ways to ensure the collateral deficiency is based on product repair, replacement or refund of the product, under the legislation in force.
For possible warranty claims it is necessary to respect all measures of maintenance / use / storage of textiles. Detaching the textile maintenance label (sewn inside the product) leads to the loss of warranty. Warranty does not cover deficiencies related to normal wear of the product, or to a particular improper use or exposure to external aggressive factors (heat, fire, excessive exposure to sun, washing with other substances than those special for wool, contact with salt sea water or sand, contact with chlorinated water, drying in the sun, keeping the product moist by not rinsing the sweat immediately after use, etc.), or use for purposes other than those the product was designed for. Damage of products such as, for example, scratches, stains, tears that were not disclosed to us by the consumer upon receipt of the product, in order to grant the guarantee, are not covered by the warranty. Tampering of the product, failure to follow cleaning and maintenance instructions, as well as its use in conditions other than those for which it was intended entail cancellation of warranty. Merinito cannot be held responsible for defects due to contact with sharp or abrasive objects that may cause breakage / drilling / premature wear of the material (e.g. pilling and blunting caused by backpack straps).
If a product is nonconforming, the consumer has the right to request the repair of our product, its replacement or, if necessary, a refund. In the event of a claim, we can repair the product, replace it with an identical or, if not available in stock with another product, with the possibility of a payment or refund of the price difference. If we find that the product cannot be repaired, we will proceed with its replacement. If the product is not available and the consumer does not want to replace the defective product with another one, we will refund to the customer the product within a maximum of 14 calendar days of receipt of the written complaint and the product in question.
Please take into consideration that due to hygiene reasons our store does not allow the exchange of goods in the undergarment category. This will include: shorts, panties, briefs and boxers. We advise our customers to choose carefully the size before purchasing or to contact our support. This warning will be displayed also on the page of each in question product.
