"CONVENTIONAL” WORLDWIDE WARRANTY Dedication to quality products and service All MABEF products are guaranteed 24 months, starting from the date of purchase, against all the manufacturing defects. The purchase date must be proved by a delivery document released from the retailer or by other document (i.e. till receipt) that brings the retailer's name and the delivery date of the product. If, during the warranty period, a manufacturing defect is recognized, MABEF will provide to eliminate the defect by reparation and/or substitution of the defective components, without any expense for the Consumer. This warranty excludes claims that arise for the following causes: •Negligence, misuse and/or mishandling •No observance of the instructions for the maintenance (see Care & Maintenance section) •Damages occured during transport, or due to circumstances and/or events that don’t depend on manufacturing process We’d point out that possible changes in colour and grain, found on the product, are not flaws but intrinsic characteristics of the wood.
