6.1 Legal warranty of compliance
All new and reconditioned Products sold on the Maltazon.com Website are covered by the European Law on Legal Warranty of Conformity. The Legal warranty is only applicable within the territory of Malta.
The warranty period for new products is 2 years (24 months), while for reconditioned products 1 year (12 months), starting from date received tax. The Legal warranty is thus reserved, only to consumers, that is to the Customers who have made the purchase on the Site Maltazon.com for purposes unrelated to the entrepreneurial, commercial, craft or professional activity eventually carried out. For all activities listed above that require an invoice, a warranty limited to 1 year (12 months) will be applied, starting from the invoice date.
Malta System LTD is only liable to the consumer for products sold and shipped by Maltazon with the exclusion of liability for products sold by "Sellers" on Maltazon.com.
Malta System LTD is responsible for any lack of conformity that exists at the time of delivery of the product and that occurs within two years of such delivery (except for reconditioned products, as written above). The lack of conformity must be reported to the seller, under penalty of forfeiture of the warranty, within two months from the date on which it was discovered. Unless there is evidence to the contrary, any lack of conformity which becomes apparent within six months of the delivery of the products shall be presumed to have existed at that date, unless that assumption is incompatible with the nature of the product or the nature of the lack of conformity. From the seventh month following the delivery of the product, it will be the responsibility of the consumer to prove that the lack of conformity already existed at the time of delivery of the product.
In order to benefit from the Legal warranty, the Customer must first provide proof of the date of purchase and delivery of the goods. It is therefore appropriate that the Customer, for the purpose of such proof, keep the purchase receipt or any other document that can attest to the date of the purchase (for example, the credit card statement or bank statement).
Any failure or malfunction caused by accidental events or by the Customer’s responsibility or by a use of the product that does not conform to its intended use are excluded from the scope of the Legal Warranty. (For more details see section 6.3 Return Merchandise Authorization).

• primarily, the repair or replacement of the goods, free of charge, at its choice, unless the remedy requested is objectively impossible or excessively expensive compared to the other*;
• as a secondary measure, upon termination of the contract.
**The remedy required is excessively burdensome if it imposes unreasonable costs on the seller in comparison with alternative remedies that may be put in place, taking into account the value that the asset would have if there were no lack of conformity and the extent of the lack of conformity.
If a product purchased on the Site, during the period of validity of the Legal warranty, manifests what could be a lack of conformity, the Customer must send to Maltazon.com appropriate notice. Maltazon.com reserves the right to ask the Customer to attach to the request the purchase receipt or other document that proves the date of completion of the purchase.
