Well, I would expect them to follow the law of the land whether they are a hobby project or not. Under EU rules you always have the right to a minimum 2-year guarantee at no cost, regardless of whether you bought your goods online, in a shop or by mail order. There is no opt-out from this requirement for small-scale producers.
When buyers self-import goods from non-member states, different rules apply though. If ordered directly, the Vampire cards are produced and shipped from Northern America to buyers in Europe and elsewhere.Quote:
In fact, the right holds even for second-hand goods purchased from a trader (not a private person). I agree that this discussion is off-topic though.
I actually think it is fairly on-topic. There is at least one retailer that is both based in the EU and selling Vampire cards. Any buyer ordering from this retailer would be entitled to the usual warranty regardless of what the manufacturer may say about the matter.
For any users interested in Vampire cards as well as extended warranty times, this should be extremely useful information to be aware of.
