Art. VIII - Warranties

Warranty conditions: In 'B to B', the warranty is 1 year. (purchase by company)

Warranty conditions: Only for 'B to C':

All delivered equipment follows the current European legislation concerning warranty periods.

To be clearer, the European warranty for ANY product sold in the territory by a European merchant MUST follow the regulation of a minimum of 2 years to date. (For France, see articles 1641 to 1649 of the civil code concerning the legal warranty against hidden defects, and articles L.217-4 to 14 of the consumer code concerning the legal warranty:

Some manufacturers and/or XBS Telecom sometimes offer contractual warranty extensions that can be free or paid depending on the case. These are always warranties that complement the legal warranty conditions during the 2-year period.

If the repair is accepted under warranty by the repair center, we will also need a copy of the transport receipt to provide you with assistance on the outbound transport price (Maximum 30 €), the return being covered during a warranty by the repair center.

Unless otherwise stated, the warranty periods mentioned in all commercial communications are the total coverage periods of the products concerned. In practice, the first two years are always covered by the legal warranty, under the conditions imposed by law. The warranty granted for the remaining period (total duration minus two years) is a contractual warranty (most often free). The conditions of these contractual (commercial) warranties depend on the brand and model of the product and are subject to change at any time, without prior notice from us. In case of doubt, please contact our team or obtain information directly from the concerned manufacturer.

The contractual (commercial) warranty is applicable only to the original purchaser; it "is not transferable" to a third party.

Deposits in relay points or any storage center of a carrier are not accepted.
