Consumers have mostly know that they have the right to withdraw from the phone or via the Internet within 14 days. "Often, but he thinks that this also applies to purchases made in-store, or do not know the exceptions to which this law does not apply," Green warns.

These are widespread misconceptions consumers and placing them on the right:

Otherwise concluded contract binding for both parties and the receipt of the goods is the responsibility of the buyer. Breach of this obligation will expose penalty, at least do that you have to pay the cost of unnecessary transportation.

Seller is always obliged to expose me to the product warranty.
- The seller must issue a warranty card only on request. A claim when a product does not necessarily need to submit warranty. Just proof of purchase, which includes statutory data.

Within 14 days, I always have the right to withdraw from the contract.
- This only applies when buying over the Internet or over the phone, that is for contracts for the use of means of distance communication. Furthermore, in the case of contracts negotiated away from business premises businessman, for example. Demonstrations and doorstep selling.

If you claim that you have not come forward as an entrepreneur, you have to prove in the event of a dispute.

The case must endure throughout the warranty period. - The warranty period is a period in which the entrepreneur bears responsibility for defects in the goods sold.

If you lose confidence in the product, which has occurred defect, I am entitled to a refund.
- When appears on the product defect within the warranty period, whether the day after the purchase or after a year of use, you have the law given rights of defective performance.
