The customer shall be obliged to check the correctness of the data on the invoices issued by the end of the current month. Subsequent complaints shall not be considered.
9 Customer rights
Any claims of legal entities regarding the goods shall be considered individually, taking into account all justifications and circumstances as much as possible. In particular, we shall consider:
- non-delivery of goods,
- delivery of wrong items,
- delivery of damaged items,
- delivery of non-compliant items,
- other deviations of the item from the sample or model.
The claim may be submitted via PAKO online shop or via contact e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for submitting the claim is 3 working days after delivery of the item. After the indicated time, claim submission shall no longer be possible unless the item is covered by a warranty period.
The seller shall notify the customer about the claim resolution by e-mail.
The return or replacement of goods shall be executed by the post office of Slovenia or PAKO delivery service to the address Pako d.o.o. , Spletna trgovina, Slovenska vas 4c, 8261 Jesenice na Dolenjskem.
9.1 Non-delivery of goods
In case the delivery service does not deliver the ordered items to the customer, the customer must immediately inform the seller via request form in PAKO online shop or via contact e-mail: email@example.com.
9.2 Delivery of non-compliant items (material defect)
The customer informs Pako d.o.o. about the delivery of non-compliant items via request form in PAKO online shop or via contact e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. The customer may exercise the rights arising from a material defect if the customer notifies PAKO online shop about the defect within 3 days of receiving the goods. In the notification, the customer should describe the defect in more detail and allow the seller to inspect the item.
The item has a material defect, if:
- the item does not have the characteristics necessary for its normal use or placing on the market,
- the item does not have the characteristics necessary for the special use required by the customer, but which was known or should have been known to the seller,
- the item does not have the characteristics and features that have been explicitly or implicitly agreed upon or stipulated,
- the seller has delivered an item that does not match the sample or model, unless the sample or model was shown for information purposes only and was of a symbolic nature.
The suitability of goods for normal use shall be assessed in relation to the usual goods of the same kind, taking into account any seller's statements on the characteristics of the goods made by the seller or manufacturer, in particular through advertising, product presentation or indications on the goods themselves.
In the event that the product deviates from the sample or model, the suitability of the item shall be checked with another, faultless item of the same type, as well as with the manufacturer's statements or indications on the item itself.
Insignificant material defects are disregarded.
If it turns out that the seller has delivered a non-compliant product to the customer, the seller shall replace the product at the seller’s own expense. The customer shall return the non-compliant product to the seller undamaged and in the same quantity, unless the item is destroyed, damaged, lost or its quantity has decreased without the fault of the customer. In the event that the customer returns a damaged product, the customer shall not be entitled to a replacement.
The customer may not use the allegedly non-compliant items, otherwise the customer shall lose the rights arising from the material defect. Upon receipt, the customer may only inspect and test the items to the extent appropriate and necessary to establish the actual situation. Testing an item that deviates from the above is considered the use of the item which means that the customer thereby loses the rights arising from the material defect.
9.3 Partial deliveries
PAKO d.o.o. shall deliver the goods in accordance with the customer's order (items, quantities). As an exception, if the items are not in stock or the ordered quantities exceed the stock, it will not be possible to deliver the items (or the quantities) in question. In case of advance payment, Pako d.o.o. shall reimburse the customer (interest-free) the difference in the amount paid corresponding to the undelivered items.
Refunds shall be made as soon as possible, but no later than within 30 days of the claim acceptance. In order to ensure the certainty, accuracy and timeliness of the refund and to provide records of payments, the payment shall be refunded to the customer on the same account from which the payment was received (PayPal, credit card or the customer's transaction account). Cash refunds are not possible.
In addition to the invoice, Pako d.o.o. will always provide the buyer with a warranty certificate and instructions for the assembly and/or use of the products, when purchasing products in respect of which the issue of a warranty for the proper functioning products is mandatory, or when purchasing products in respect of which the manufacturer of the product offers a voluntary warranty. If the products do not work perfectly or do not have the characteristics stated in the warranty certificate or advertisement, Pako d.o.o. will provide a free of charge rectification of defects within the warranty period and within 45 days at the latest.
When claiming the warranty, the conditions stated on the warranty certificate provided with the product under warranty, apply. The Buyer can claim the warranty with the warranty certificate, the invoice and other documents indicated on the invoice.
Proper functioning goods for which the manufacturer is obliged to offer a warranty do not normally include general-purpose rechargeable battery packs, light bulbs, fuses, electronic components and other consumables.
The right to a refund in the event of a warranty claim is governed by the Consumer Protection Act.
10 The provider's right to withdraw from the contract
The provider shall reserve the right to withdraw (fully or in part) from fulfilling the order in the following exceptional cases:
- the ordered goods are no longer in stock (computer systems automatically check the stock several times a day, but the item may be out of stock in exceptional circumstances),
- the seller determines an increased payment risk on the part of the customer, especially if it was not possible to debit the customer's debit card or the purchase price was not paid upon maturity,
- the order does not contain all the information necessary for fulfilling the order,
- there is a material error on the part of the seller (Article 46 of Obligations Code). A material error is an error related to the essential characteristics of an object, to a person with whom a contract is concluded when concluded in respect of that person, or to circumstances which are considered decisive according to customary traffic or the intention of the parties because otherwise the erring party would not enter into a contract with such content. This also includes obvious price errors.
- if Pako d.o.o. is notified by a competent public authority or a payment service provider or payment method provider of the misuse of a credit card or of any other misuse or of a criminal offence,
- if it can be implied from past relations between Pako d.o.o. and the Buyer that the Buyer may abuse its warranty or other rights;
- if the Buyer is or becomes subject to insolvency or other liquidation proceedings that could make it difficult to make payment;
In all such and similar cases, the customer shall be immediately notified by e-mail of any withdrawal from the contract by the provider.
