OM Digital Solutions Repair Terms (UK)
Section 1 Scope
For the business relationship OM Digital Solutions GmbH, Domstrasse 10, 20095 Hamburg, Germany (hereinafter referred to as “OM Digital Solutions”, “we”, “us”) and the party placing a repair order, the following Repair Terms apply in the version valid at the time of the order. OM Digital Solutions does not recognise any deviating conditions of the ordering party unless OM Digital Solutions explicitly agrees to their application in writing.
Section 2 Concluding the contract
Repair orders can be submitted online via the "MyOlympus" website accessible at https://my.olympus-consumer.com/. At the beginning of the repair order process the ordering party will be ask to provide certain details regarding the device to be repaired and to provide evidence of the date of purchase, e.g. by a copy of the purchase invoice ("Purchase Document"). Based on this information the ordering party will be informed prior to the conclusion of a contract whether the repair order is covered by an OM Digital Solutions or Olympus guarantee/warranty (hereafter referred to as "in-warranty") or subject to a service charge (hereafter referred to as "out-of-warranty"). As regards in-warranty repairs, the terms and conditions stated in the European Service Warranty prevail and the following Repair Terms only apply supplementary. Any acceptance of a repair order as in-warranty is subject to a (manual) verification of the Purchase Document by us. In case the Purchase Document shows that repair order actually does not qualify for in-warranty repair, we will inform the ordering party and ask whether a charged out-of-warranty should be performed instead.
Before sending the repair order, the ordering party can view and modify the data at any time. The ordering party issues a binding offer of contract as soon as the ordering party clicks on the Submit for repair button. The repair order can however only be submitted and transferred if the ordering party sets a tick in the corresponding checkbox to accept these Repair Terms and the request is therefore accepted. If the ordering party submits a repair order, we will provide the ordering party with a confirmation of receipt of the order and list the details of such order (order confirmation). This order confirmation does not indicate acceptance of the offer, but rather aims to inform the ordering party that we have received the order. We accept the offer to conclude a repair service agreement at the moment in which the ordering party is charged the price either in full or in part. The ordering party waives receipt of an explicit acceptance declaration. If a repair service agreement is not concluded, then we reserve the right to demand back any performance possibly provided by us. The contractual partner is OM Digital Solutions. OM Digital Solutions does not offer any chargeable services to minors.
Language available for the conclusion of the contract is English. OM Digital Solutions will not store the text of the order after the conclusion of the contract and will not make it is accessible to the ordering party.

Section 9 Acceptance of Repair Service and Warranty
The repair services shall be deemed accepted if the ordering party has not refused acceptance within 7 days after receipt of the repaired device by stating at least one defect which is not only insignificant and actually exists (or - from an objective view - seems to exist). Any refusal of acceptance shall be notified together with an explanation to firstname.lastname@example.org
If the ordering party is a consumer, the statutory warranty rights apply for all repair services. In case the ordering party is a commercial entity/business person, the warranty period is one year or the statutory warranty period, whichever expires earlier. The warranty period commences in both cases from the moment the repair service has been accepted or is deemed to be accepted.
The assignment of warranty claims by the ordering party is excluded.
Section 10 Liability
OM Digital Solutions is liable to pay damages - regardless of their legal basis - only in case of intent or gross negligence. In any case of simple negligence, OM Digital Solutions shall be liable only for damage based on the breach of a material contractual duty (obligation which makes the proper implementation of the contract possible in the first place and the observance of which the ordering party may regularly rely on); in this case the liability is however limited to the foreseeable, typically occurring damages.
If the ordering party suffers a loss of data due to simple negligence on part of OM Digital Solutions and the recovery of the data is not possible or is significantly impeded due to the ordering party's lack of or inadequate data backup, OM Digital Solutions' liability shall be limited in amount to the damage that would have occurred even with proper data backup.
The foregoing exclusions and limitations of liability shall apply to the same extent in favour of OM Digital Solutions' executive bodies, legal representatives, employees and other vicarious agents.
The limitations stipulated in the foregoing Items shall not apply in case OM Digital Solutions has fraudulently concealed a defect or has assumed an express voluntary guarantee for the properties of the item. The same applies to damages resulting from injury to life, body and health as well as a product liability under the German Product Liability Act or any other product liability act under the law of the country of ordering party's habitual residence.
Section 11 Applicable law and dispute resolution
These Repair Terms are governed by German law. In case the ordering party is a consumer, mandatory statutory provisions of the country of ordering party's habitual residence remain unaffected. Nothing in these terms and conditions affect the ordering party's rights as a consumer to rely on such mandatory provisions of local law. Place of jurisdiction for all disputes under or in connection with this agreement is Hamburg. In case ordering party is a consumer, OM Digital Solutions may only sue ordering party at the competent court of the country of ordering party's habitual residence and (ii) ordering party may sue OM Digital Solutions at Hamburg or at the competent court of the country of ordering party's habitual residence.
Under the Regulation (EU) No. 524/2013, the EU Commission has created a platform for the out-of-court resolution of disputes and this is available from http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. We are neither willing nor obliged to take part in a dispute resolution process before a consumer arbitration authority.
