The guarantee shall never cover defects which are the consequence of accidents, an aggravation of the condition by negligence, wear and tear, falls, shocks, water damage, oxidation, use of the article which is abnormal or contrary to the purpose for which it was designed, non-observance of the instructions for use of the OSSEYAN article, adaptations or modifications made to the OSSEYAN article, a defect in maintenance.
The absence of original packaging shall also be a ground for non-application of the guarantee.
