13 DELAYS AND NON-DELIVERY – YOUR RIGHTS AND TIME LIMIT TO MAKE A CLAIM

13.1 If we do not deliver the good or delivers it late according to the terms of the parties’ contract, and this is not due to you or to conditions on tyour side, you may, in accordance with Chapter 5 of the Consumer Purchases Act, withhold the purchase sum, demand performance of the contract, terminate the contract and/or demand compensation from us, according to the relevant circumstances.

For demands of remedy for breach of contract, notice should be given in writing for the purposes of documentation (e.g. by email).

13.2 Performance. You may affirm the purchase and demand performance from us. You may not however demand performance if there is a barrier to performance we cannot overcome, or if performance would cause a great disadvantage or expense to us that is out of proportion to your interest in the performance. Should these obstacles be removed within a reasonable amount of time, however, you may demand performance.

You will lose your right to demand performance if you wait an unreasonably long time to make the claim.

13.3 Termination. If we do not deliver the good at the time set for delivery, you shall call on us to deliver within a reasonable additional time frame for performance. If we do not deliver the good within the additional time frame, you may cancel the purchase.

You may however cancel the purchase immediately if we refuse to deliver the good. This also applies to cases in which delivery at the agreed time was a decisive factor in the conclusion of the contract, or if you has informed us that the delivery time is a decisive factor.

If the item is delivered after the additional time frame set by the consumer or after the delivery time that was a decisive factor in the  conclusion of the contract, termination must be asserted within a reasonable time frame after you were informed of the delivery.

13.4 Compensation. You may demand compensation for losses incurred as a result of the delay. However, this does not apply to cases in which we can assert that the delay was due to obstacles outside our control that could not have reasonably been foreseen at the time the contract was concluded, could not have been avoided or the consequences of which could not have been overcome.

14 DEFECTIVE GOODS – YOUR RIGHTS AND TIME LIMIT TO GIVE NOTICE

14.1 If the good is defective, you must notify us that you wishes to invoke the defect within a reasonable amount of time after the defect was discovered or should have been discovered. You are always considered to have given timely notice if it occurs within two months after the defect was discovered or should have been discovered. Notice may be given no later than two years after you took possession of the good. If the good or parts of it are meant to last considerably longer than two years, this deadline is extended to five years.

If the good has a defect and this is not due to you or to conditions on your part, you may, in accordance with Chapter 6 of the Consumer Purchases Act, withhold the purchase sum, choose between repair and replacement, demand a price reduction, demand that contract be terminated and/or demand compensation from us, according to the relevant circumstances.

Notice should be given to us in writing.

14.2 Repair or replacement. You may choose between having the defect repaired or the delivery of an equivalent item. We may however oppose your claim if carrying out the claim is impossible or causes us to incur unreasonable expenses. Repair or replacement shall be performed within a reasonable amount of time. We do not as a rule have the right to more than two attempts to cure for the same defect.

14.3 Price reduction. You may demand a suitable price reduction if the good is not repaired or replaced. This means that that relation between the reduced and originally agreed price corresponds to the relation between the item’s value in defective condition and the condition according to the original contract. If special circumstances call for it, the price reduction may instead correspond to the defect’s impact on you.

14.4 Termination. If the good is not repaired or replaced, you may also cancel the purchase in cases where the defect is not immaterial.

15 OUR RIGHTS IN CASE OF YOUR BREACH OF CONTRACT

15.1 If you do not pay or otherwise fulfil your duties according to the contract and/or the law, and this is not due to us or to conditions on the part of us, we may, in accordance with the rules in Chapter 9 of the Consumer Purchases Act, withhold the good, demand performance of the contract, terminate the contract and demand compensation from you, according to the relevant circumstances.

15.2 Fulfilment. If you do not pay, you may affirm the purchase and demand that you pay the purchase sum. If the good is not delivered, we will lose our right if it takes an unreasonably long time to make the claim.

15.3 Termination. Upon significant non-payment breach or any other significant breach by you, we may terminate the contract. However, we may not terminate the contract after the purchase sum has been paid. We may also terminate the purchase if you do not pay within a reasonable additional time frame for fulfilment set by us.

16 CONFLICT RESOLUTION

Claims must be directed to us within a reasonable time frame in accordance with Sections 13 and 14. The parties shall attempt to resolve any disputes out of court. If this is not successful, you may contact the Consumer Council of Norway for mediation. The Consumer Council may be reached on (+47) 23 400 500 or at www.forbrukerradet.no.

17 GENERAL
If any part of the Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed to be severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any of the remaining provisions of the Terms.
