During this period, the consumer is only required to establish the existence of the lack of conformity and not the date of its appearance.
“Where the contract for the sale of the goods provides for the supply of digital content or a digital service on a continuous basis for a period of more than two years, the legal guarantee shall apply to that digital content or digital service throughout the period of supply provided. During this period, the consumer is only required to establish the existence of the lack of conformity affecting the digital content or service and not the date of its appearance.
