Remedies available to the Consumer Customer
In the event of a lack of conformity, the Consumer Customer may request, at his choice, the repair of the Product or its replacement, unless the remedy requested is objectively impossible or excessively burdensome compared to the other in accordance with the provisions of art. 130 paragraph 4 of the Consumer Code.
In particular, a remedy is to be considered excessively burdensome if it imposes unreasonable costs on the seller compared to the other, taking into account:
(i) the value that the asset would have if there was no lack of conformity;
(ii) the extent of the lack of conformity;
(iii) the possibility that the alternative remedy can be carried out without significant inconvenience for the Consumer Customer.
Vemas, in order to provide a high-level and absolutely transparent after-sales service, undertakes, on a voluntary basis, to have the defective Product carried out or replaced within 40 (forty) days from the request for warranty assistance.

(i) the repair or replacement is impossible or excessively expensive;
(ii) Vemas has not repaired or replaced the Product within the term of 40 (forty) days;
(iii) the replacement or repair previously carried out has caused significant inconvenience. A minor lack of conformity for which it has not been possible or is excessively burdensome to carry out the remedies for repair or replacement, does not give the right to terminate the contract.
After Vemas has received the complaint of the lack of conformity, it reserves the right to offer the Consumer Customer any other available remedies, with the following effects:
(i) if the Consumer Customer has already requested a specific remedy, Vemas will remain obliged to implement it, with the necessary consequences with regard to the expiry of the 40 (forty) day term referred to above, unless the Consumer Customer accepts the proposed alternative remedy;
