Cancellation and Refund Conditions
Cancellation and Return Terms
Under Law No. 6052 on the Consumer Protection, as per Distant Agreements, the Consumer is entitled to withdraw from the agreement without any justification and without assuming any penal liability, within a period of fourteen days following the receipt of the goods purchased via the internet. Replacements and failures to arise due to regular use of the product shall not be considered impairment.
The right of withdrawal period shall commence on the agreement execution date for service performance agreements, or on the date of delivery of the product to the consumer or a third party named by the consumer for goods delivery agreements. However, the consumer can also exert the right of withdrawal within the period from the execution of the agreement to the delivery of the product. The consumer should provide written notice of their intent to return the product, to AO Smith, explicitly specifying the product they had purchased, within 14 days.
The consumer shall be required to return the product to the firm which made the sales, within 10 (ten) days following the right of withdrawal notice. The products to be returned should be delivered along with their original invoice, box, packaging, and standard accessories if any.
In cases where the product covered by the right of withdrawal involves any factor that leads to its impairment or that precludes its return, and if such impairment or preclusion is caused by a fault on the part of the consumer, the consumer shall be required to cover the impairment or the value of the product, as applicable.
