This period will be listed in the relevant warranty certificate, service book or on the packing slip. The customer acknowledges that during the warranty period exceeding the length of the basic warranty period they cannot claim a replacement product or withdrawal from the contract. For certain products, which have the character of consumables (like lighting sources (light bulbs and lamps), storage batteries, batteries, air filters, cables, remote controls, storage media, transport bags, interactive pens, felt tip pens and lubricating sponges for white boards, etc.) the lifetime and the warranty period is limited and defined by the manufacturer.
