V. Warranty

Insofar as there is a defect in the goods, the customer is entitled, at his discretion, to remedy the defect in the form of a remedy of the defect or to deliver a new goods free of defects.

If the supplementary performance has failed, the customer can, at his discretion, declare his withdrawal from the contract or reduce the purchase price. A special nature of the goods to be delivered is not agreed. The delivered goods are defective if they do not meet the technical standard of digital photo development and processing. Color deviations between the products and the differently displayed image files on different screens can not be technically avoided, they are therefore no defects. Likewise, there is no defect if the customer orders despite warning a format or photo product for which the original image file does not exhibit optimum resolution and thereby the image quality is impaired (e.g., pixelation, blurring). nicedive4u assumes no guarantee of quality or durability. In the case of orders of an entrepreneur ordering goods in the course of his commercial or independent professional activity, the following additionally applies: the customer undertakes to inspect the goods immediately upon receipt and to report any obvious defects within one week in writing stating the defect. If the customer omits the ad, the delivered goods are considered approved. The same applies to later defects.
