Warranty conditions

General and warranty

We, FOND OF GmbH, grant a two-year manufacturer’s warranty on the workmanship and material of all ergobag school bags from the date of purchase. The warranty applies within the EU and Switzerland and within the personal scope if you, as a consumer, have purchased a ergobag school bag within the meaning of Section 13 of the German Civil Code.

Your statutory rights as a consumer in the event of defects (subsequent performance, withdrawal or reduction as well as, if applicable, damages in accordance with Sections 437 et seq. German Civil Code) are not limited by this warranty, but can be asserted against the respective dealer (seller) independently and free of charge.

If you identify material or processing defects within the two-year warranty period and return the ergobag school bag to the respective dealer or directly to us before the warranty expires, we will rectify the defect in question or replace the ergobag school bag with a defect-free product. We make the decision on how to remedy the defects. We will cover the costs incurred for rectifying defects as well as any shipping costs incurred. We will not assume any other costs that may also arise in connection with the warranty claim, such as costs for shipping packaging.

The warranty does not cover normal wear and tear and damage caused by improper handling, accidents or extreme temperatures.

All accessories of the ergobag school bags to which only the statutory warranty rights apply are excluded from the warranty, in particular: Leisure backpacks, duffle bags, gym bags, pencil cases and rolls incl. filling, rain capes, folder boxes, drinking bottles, neck pouches, hangies, kletties, zippies, umbrellas and reflective stickers.

Please note that the ergobag school bag may deform due to external influences such as a washing cycle in the dishwasher or washing machine or strong force from above, such as sitting on it, causing it to lose its stability. In addition, the deformed body can lead to the inability to open/close your school bag (cubo/light/wide) properly. In these cases, our warranty does not apply, as it is a case of incorrect handling.

In the event of a warranty claim, the warranty period will not be extended by another two years. The warranty is always valid from the date of purchase and is limited to the two-year term calculated from the date of purchase.
