This legal warranty is valid as from the date of delivery to the first owner. In order to make a warranty claim, the customer must be able to submit proof of purchase. Customers are recommended to keep the original packaging of the goods. For items purchased online and delivered to the customer's home, the customer must contact the seller and return the item to him at his own expense. The usual transport cost will be reimbursed to the customer in case if the complaint was justified (on the basis of the enclosed invoice).

The seller shall deliver goods to the customer in accordance with the contract and shall remain responsible for material defects relating to the fulfilment of the contract.

 A defect shall be deemed material if:

 – the item does not have the characteristics necessary for its regular use or placing in circulation;

– the item does not have the characteristics necessary for the special use for which the buyer

bought it, and this was or should have been known to the seller;

– the item does not have the characteristics and features that were expressly or tacitly agreed upon or prescribed;

– the seller delivered an item that does not match the sample or model, unless the sample or model was only shown for information purposes.

 

The adequacy of goods for normal use shall be assessed in relation to usual goods of the same kind and by having regard to any declarations of the seller as to the characteristics of goods, provided by the seller or the producer through, in particular, advertising, presentation of the product or indications on the goods.

Customers may exercise their rights resulting from a material defect on the condition that they notify the seller of the defect within two months of the discovery of the defect.

In the notification of a defect the customer shall precisely describe the defect and enable the seller to inspect the item. The customer may use the following form for the notification of a defect - warranty.

The seller shall not be liable for material defects that appear more than two years after the item was received by the customer.

A customer who has informed a seller of a defect in the prescribed manner, shall have the right to request that the seller:

 - eliminates the defect in the goods, or

- replaces the defective goods with new flawless goods, or

- reimburses the entire payment.

 

The consumer's rights shall expire two years from the day the consumer informed the seller of the material defect.

The warranty shall never apply to defects due to accidents, negligence, falls, use of the item for purposes it is not intended for, non-compliance with the user instructions or manual, changes or modifications made to the item, hard-handed usage, bad maintenance or any other abnormal or incorrect usage. Insignificant and/or industry-customary deviations in quality, colour, size, etc. may not serve as grounds for a claim.

 

 

6. Right of withdrawal/Order cancellation/Reconsideration period

 

The customer is entitled to withdraw from the agreement within a period of 14 calendar days without indication of reasons. The right of withdrawal ends 14 calendar days after the day on which the customer or a third party other than the carrier and designated by the customer acquires material possession of the goods. In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, the customer needs to inform the seller of his decision to withdraw from the contract, by means of a clear statement in writing sended by email to info@tehnomat.si. For this purpose, the customer can use the attached model withdrawal form. To comply with the withdrawal period, the customer needs to send the notification of exercise of his withdrawal right before the end of the withdrawal period. The customer shall return or hand over the goods to the seller immediately, or, in any case, not later than 14 calendar days after the day on which his decision to withdraw from the contract was notified to the seller. The customer is on time if he returns the goods before the end of the period of 14 calendar days.

The customer has a legal duty to keep the goods in his/her possession, to take reasonable care of them and not to use them before he/she returns them to the seller. If the value of the goods is less than it was because the customer has handled them beyond what is necessary (such as to see the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods) then the seller may charge the customer an appropriate amount and take that amount from what he owes to the customer. This might happen because the customer starts to use the goods. Only returns of items that are in their original packaging, together with all accessories, user manuals and an invoice or proof of purchase will be accepted. Returns should be sent to: Tehnomat, Kranj, d.o.o., Jezerska cesta 55, 4000 Kranj, Slovenia.

If the customer withdraws from the agreement, the seller will reimburse all payments received from the customer up to that moment, including standard costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if the customer choses a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by the seller), to the customer within 14 calendar days after the seller has been informed of the decision of the customer to withdraw from the contract and after the seller receives the goods well returned. The seller will reimburse the customer using the same method of payment the customer used for the initial transaction. Once a refund has been issued the customer will receive a confirmation e-mail detailing the amount that has been refunded and the item(s) the seller has received back.
