Consumer Guarantees – Your Right to Refund, Replacement or Credit
Cypriot Consumer Law (CCL) is the national law for fair trading and consumer protection. Nothing in these terms excludes, restricts, or modifies any right, remedy, or consumer guarantee available to you under the CCL.
Under the CCL, you are entitled to a refund, replacement, or credit from Gems Pets when a product fails to meet one of the automatic consumer guarantees provided under the CCL. These guarantees include that:
- The product is faulty or of unacceptable quality;
- The product does not match the product description; and
- The product is unfit for the intended purpose (does not do what it is meant to);
The consumer guarantees will not apply where you have:
- caused the product to become damaged (such as using the product in a way that it is not intended to be used);
- have mistreated or abused the product (intentionally or unintentionally);
- received what you asked for but changed your mind, found it cheaper elsewhere or decided you do not like the product; or
- knew of or were made aware of the faults before you bought the product.
Gems Pets complies with Cypriot Consumer Law. If you receive a damaged or faulty product, or the product does not match its description or does not perform as promised, you may be entitled to a refund, replacement, or credit. However, we cannot offer refunds for products that have been damaged due to misuse or for products that you have simply changed your mind about. Please keep your proof of purchase.
Limitation of Liability
To the extent permitted by law, Gems Pets’ liability for any breach of any term, condition, or warranty implied by any Act of Parliament is limited to the cost of either replacing the product or having it repaired.
