  17. The Consumer may, instead of the defect rectification proposed by the Seller, demand that the item be replaced with a defect-free item or, instead of the replacement, demand that the defect be rectified, unless making the item consistent with the Contract using the method selected by the Consumer is impossible or would be too expensive in comparison to the method proposed by the Seller – the determination if the selected method is too expensive shall be done with consideration of the value of a defect-free item, significance of the discovered defect and the inconvenience to the Consumer that would be generated by the other method of satisfying the Consumer's claim.

  29. If, due to a defect of the item sold, the Consumer has submitted a statement on withdrawal from the Contract or price reduction, the Consumer may demand that the damage it suffered by concluding the Contract without knowing the existence of the defect be redressed, even if the defect is a result of circumstances for which the Seller is not liable. In particular, the Consumer may demand refund of the costs of the Contract, costs of collection, transport, storage and insurance of the item, refund of the expenses paid to the extent to which the Consumer benefited from them but was not refunded by the third party and litigation costs.
