In particular, the two-year legal guarantee of conformity will apply to the sale of goods that contain digital elements (e.g. smartphones, smartwatches, DVDs, CDs and USB sticks) as well as to the supply of digital content (e.g. video games, audio recordings, videos and mobile apps) and digital services (e.g. video-on-demand, streaming and cloud storage).
