PERLES WARRANTY TERMS & CONDITIONS
All Perles power tools (hereinafter: the power tools) have been thoroughly checked and tested in accordance with the Perles Quality Assurance System standards.
The manufacturer assures warranty for the power tools in accordance with the terms and conditions as set forth herein in the form of a free repair of defects in material or manufacturing that is proven to occur within the warranty period. This warranty does not limit the purchaser's rights resulting from the seller's liability for defects arising from the purchase contract and the legal rights of the purchaser.
In addition to all purchaser’s legal rights relating to the purchase of the power tool, the power tool is covered by the warranty in accordance with the following conditions:
1. POWER TOOL NAME
The manufacturer and guarantor is the company ATECH elektronika d.o.o., Bač pri Materiji 30, 6242 Materija, Slovenia, registration number: 5433282000 (hereinafter: the manufacturer).
4. TERRITORIAL COVERAGE
This warranty is valid within the territory of the country in which the seller has its principal place of business. In the event the power tool has been obtained outside this area, please contact your authorised dealer to determine whether a different warranty applies in this particular case.
5. WARRANTY PERIOD
A standard warranty period of 12 months applies to all new power tools. The warranty becomes valid at the purchase date, evidenced by the date on the original invoice or other proof of purchase.
5.1. WARRANTY PERIOD EXTENSION
The manufacturer offers the possibility of an extension of the standard warranty period by an additional 24 months, resulting in a total warranty period of 36 months from the date of the purchase.
To qualify for the warranty period extension, the purchaser needs to register his/her newly-acquired power tool on the manufacturer's website within 30 days of the date of the purchase (listed on the original invoice or other proof or purchase). In addition, the purchaser must give his/her consent to the storage of the required data which must be entered online and he/she must accept these terms and conditions. After successful registration of the power tool, the registration certificate will be sent to the purchaser automatically. Accompanied by the original invoice or other proof of purchase (clearly showing the product ID, serial number and purchase date), the registration certificate will serve as proof of the extended warranty period.
The extended warranty explicitly excludes gears and toothed rings, collectors, brushes, clamping systems (drilling heads, pulses ...), bearings, clutches, saw blades, drills and other accessories, and other parts where signs of wear and tear are visible.
5.2. WARRANTY TERMS
All warranty claims must be submitted within the warranty period. The warranty period for the enforcement of warranty, post-warranty or any other claim shall run from the date of purchase of the power tool or when the purchaser collects a repaired or replaced power tool. In the event the power tool is repaired, the warranty period shall run from the moment the purchaser receives the repaired power tool or from the date the invoice for the power tool repair is issued, whichever comes first, provided that the repair is of such nature that the warranty begins to run again for the entire power tool, otherwise the warranty period shall start anew only for that part of the power tool that has been substantially repaired or replaced.

The power tool must be returned, accompanied by the warranty card and original invoice or other proof or purchase (clearly indicating the power tool ID, serial number and purchase date), to the seller or authorised service centre of the manufacturer.

The purchaser must collect the repaired or replaced power tool within 7 days from the date when he/she has been prompted to do so in writing. In the event of uncollected goods, the manufacturer or the seller may, without prior notice, invoice the purchaser a penalty for each default day of the power tool’s storage.
In the event that purchaser does not collect a repaired or replaced power tool within 2 months after a notification from the previous paragraph and provided that the total amount of penalties was not paid, The manufacturer may sell the power tool at the price and purchaser at his own discretion, provided that the customer receives prior written notice in accordance with the applicable regulations.
