  8. Inspection and complaints
    1. The Customer shall be obliged to carefully inspect the Products immediately upon arrival at their destination or to have these examined upon receipt by the Customer itself or any third party acting at its instructions, whichever is earlier.

  9. Limited Manufacturer Guarantee
    1. In the event of the purchase of a new Ti1 Vinghen push-bike model, in addition to the Customer’s statutory warranty claims, Vinghen gives the Customer a limited 2-year guarantee that the Products are free from defects in workmanship and materials.
    1. This limited guarantee referred to in article 9.1 is expressly limited to the replacement of a defective frame, or defective parts, which is the sole remedy under this limited guarantee. Notwithstanding local statutory rights, a repair/replacement under a guarantee does not extend the guarantee period. This guarantee applies to the original owner and is transferable for the remaining period in the event of a new owner having purchased the bike.
    1. Claims under the limited guarantee must be made directly to Your point of purchase, whereby proof of the purchase is required. The replacement of boxes is not covered by the limited guarantee. In the event You need a replacement of the box, we will send You one for an additional fee.
    1. This limited guarantee does not cover normal wear and tear, improper assembly or follow-up maintenance including damage resulting from incorrectly replacing parts, or installation of parts or accessories. The limited guarantee does not apply to damage or failure due to accident, misuse, abuse, neglect, or failing to follow instructions. Any unauthorized modification of the frame or components shall void this limited guarantee. This limited guarantee shall not apply in case of a copy, modification, reverse engineering, decompiling, disassembly of or otherwise tampering with the Product, its components and/or the Service. Vinghen is not responsible for incidental or consequential damages. This limited guarantee does not affect the statutory warranty rights of the Customer.
    1. The incorporated battery of the Product, battery replacements and battery accessories, are tested and should perform over 1000 charge cycles before it falls below 70% of its original total capacity during the warranty period as described in article 9.1 of these Terms.
  10. Force majeure
    1. If Vinghen is unable to fulfil any of its obligations towards Customer due to force majeure, these obligations shall be suspended during the force majeure situation.
    1. Provided however, if a force majeure situation has lasted for one (1) calendar month, both parties have the right to dissolve the Agreement in writing entirely or in part. In the event of force majeure of Vinghen, Customer is not entitled to any compensation or damages.
    1. Parties shall notify each other as soon as possible of any (possible) force majeure situation.
  11. Warranty claims
    1. Vinghen warrants only those features, qualities of its Products that are explicitly agreed in writing. All other specific or implied warranties are – to extent allowed under applicable mandatory law – hereby expressly excluded.
    1. If Vinghen should deliver Products to the Customer which Vinghen has obtained from its own suppliers, Vinghen shall at no time be obliged to honour a warranty or liability in respect of the Customer which is more far-reaching than that which Vinghen can claim from its own supplier.
    1. Except as provided in section 14.1, if, in Vinghen’s opinion, the Customer has been able to prove that any Products supplied by Vinghen to the Customer do not function properly, Vinghen may choose, at its sole discretion, between:
      1. re-supplying the Products with a Product of the same model that is of similar, age, mileage and condition, upon receiving the returned Products;
      1. modifying the Products properly;
      1. granting the Customer a discount on the purchase price to be agreed by mutual consent.
      1. Vinghen shall be fully discharged of its warranty obligations by complying with one of the options described above, and it shall not be held to pay any further compensation or damages.
  12. Liability
    1. Customer’s claims for compensation are hereby excluded. This exclusion shall not include the Customer’s compensation claims arising out of the loss of life, physical injury, damage to health or out of the breach of fundamental contract obligations (cardinal obligations), or liability for other damage and loss which is due to an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by Vinghen, its legal representatives or vicarious agents. Fundamental contract obligations (cardinal obligations) are those whose fulfilment is what makes the due performance of the contract possible at all and whose fulfilment may be usually relied upon by a contract partner
    1. In the event of a breach of fundamental contract obligations, Vinghen is liable only for the contract-typical, foreseeable damage and loss if this was caused through simple negligence, unless the Customer’s compensation claims arise out of a loss of life, physical injury or damage to health.
    1. The limitations of liability arising out of 12.1 and 12.2 do not apply insofar as Vinghen’s liability is due to fraudulent concealment or the assumption of a guarantee.
  13. Termination
    1. If Customer fails to fulfil any of its obligations arising from the Agreement properly or in time, Customer shall be in default and Vinghen shall be entitled without any default notice:
      1. to suspend the fulfilment of the Agreement until payment has been adequately guaranteed; and/or
      1. to dissolve the Agreement with Customer entirely or in part;
      1. all this without prejudice to Vinghen’s other rights under any Agreement whatsoever and without Vinghen being held to any damages.
    1. If Vinghen exercises its right of termination as mentioned in article 13.1, Vinghen is authorized to set off any amount which may possibly be refunded to Customer with a remuneration for activities already carried out as well as with a compensation for loss of profit.
    1. In the event of bankruptcy, (provisional) suspension of payment, liquidation or attachment of one or more assets of Customer or if Customer is aware that any of these situations may occur, Customer must notify Vinghen thereof as soon as possible.
    1. In case of a situation as referred to in article 13.3, all Agreements with Customer shall be terminated immediately by notice from Vinghen or Vinghen may notify Customer that it wishes (part of) the Agreement concerned to be fulfilled, in which case Vinghen is entitled without any default notice:
      1. to suspend fulfilment of the Agreement(s) concerned until payment has been adequately guaranteed; and/or
      1. to suspend all its payment obligations, if any, towards Customer;
      1. all this without prejudice to Vinghen’s other rights under any Agreement whatsoever and without Vinghen being held to any damages.
    1. In the event of a situation as referred to in article 13.3, all Vinghen’s claims against Customer shall be immediately payable in full.
  14. Transfer of rights and obligations
    1. Vinghen is allowed to transfer to third parties the rights and obligations described in any Agreement with Customer. If obligations of Vinghen are transferred, Vinghen must inform Customer aforehand and Customer shall be entitled to terminate the Agreement by the date on which the transfer shall take place.
