General terms

of this warranty

LIGHT ENVIROMENT CONTROL, S.L. (hereinafter, interchangeably referred to as “LEC” or “Company“) certifies that any of its lighting products and equipment sold or supplied are free from any manufacturing defects, malfunctions, or damages caused by mishandling during manufacturing.

The warranty regulated in this document is applicable to any product within the lighting range of Light Environment Control (hereinafter referred to as the “Products” or the “Product”) if this document is included in the accompanying documentation and if it was purchased within the warranty coverage territory. By means of this document, LEC grants a warranty to the Products for manufacturing defects or defects in the materials used for a duration of five (5) years, starting from the date of issuance of the delivery note of the product, against any non-conformity with the sales contract of the Products as set forth in Article 116 of Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007, of November 16, approving the Consolidated Text of the General Law for the Defense of Consumers and Users and other complementary laws, or any replacing regulations.

After the initial two years of the warranty period have elapsed, LEC, regarding Products with manufacturing defects or defects in the materials used, will repair or replace, at its discretion, the Product or its defective parts in accordance with the conditions specified below. Furthermore, during the last three years of the warranty, it will maintain its initial coverage of not imposing any charges for labor or repair parts.

In any case, for purchases within European Union countries, the warranty provided by the Company starts with the Product at LEC’s facilities. That is to say, once the Product has been inspected and it has been confirmed that it is covered by the warranty regulated here, the Product will be returned to the Customer under the terms and conditions set forth in this document, with the return shipping costs of the Product to the Customer paid for, and reimbursing, within the first two years, the shipping costs incurred by the Customer in sending the Product to LEC’s facilities. If the purchase takes place outside the European Union, LEC is not responsible for transporting the material to our facilities or delivering it to the customer once the Product has been inspected. Starting from the third year, the warranty will not cover both the shipping and delivery of the Product, as well as failures in control and power devices. This warranty does not cover, under any circumstances, the costs incurred for the uninstallation and installation of the product.
