Awareness of the company’s liability for material defects
The Consumer Protection Act (ZvPot-1) stipulates that the seller must deliver the goods to the consumer in accordance with the contract. The seller is liable for material defects in his performance under the ZvPot.
When is a material defect? When:
- the goods do not have the characteristics necessary for their normal use or for circulation
- the article does not have the characteristics necessary for the particular use for which the buyer is purchasing it, which was known or ought to have been known to the seller
- the goods do not possess the characteristics and qualities which were expressly or tacitly agreed or prescribed
- the seller has handed over an article which does not correspond to a sample or model, unless the sample or model was shown for information only.
How the suitability of the article is checked
It is verified by another, faultless article of the same type, as well as by the manufacturer’s declarations or the indications on the article itself.
How is a material defect established?
The consumer may exercise his rights under the law on material defects if he notifies the seller of the defect within two months of the date on which the defect was discovered.
The consumer must describe the defect in detail in the notice of defect and give the seller the opportunity to inspect the item.
The consumer may give the defect notice to the seller in person, for which the seller must issue a receipt, or by sending it to the shop where the item was bought or to the seller’s agent with whom the consumer has concluded a contract (Article 37a of the CTMPL).
The seller is not liable for material defects in the goods which become apparent after two years have passed since the goods were delivered.
If the subject of the contract between the seller and the consumer is a second-hand item, the seller is not liable for material defects in the goods which become apparent after one year has passed since the item was handed over.
A defect in the goods shall be deemed to have existed at the time of delivery if it appears within six months of delivery (Art. 37b of the Consumer Protection Act).
If the existence of a defect in the goods or an irregularity in the performance of the service is not disputed, the company must comply with the consumer’s request as soon as possible, but at the latest within eight days. The company must reply in writing to the consumer’s request no later than eight days after receipt of the request if the existence of a defect in the goods or an irregularity in the performance of the service is disputed. (Art. 39 of Art. 39 of the PSCT).
Taking back of goods returned from warranty or material defect treatment
The buyer is obliged to take delivery of the goods which he has handed over to the seller for warranty or other defect treatment after the treatment has been completed. The Buyer shall collect the item at the collection point at which it was handed over to the Seller in person, or, if sent by post, it shall be returned to the Buyer at the delivery address.
The Seller shall send the Buyer a notification of the return of the item from the inspection and invite the Buyer to collect the item. The Buyer is obliged to collect the item within 14 days from the date of the notification.
If the Buyer fails to collect the item within the said period, the item shall be handed over to the Seller for safekeeping at the Seller’s warehouse address. The Seller shall keep the item in its own warehouse until the expiry of 6 months from the date of notification.
After the expiry of 6 months from the date of notification, the Seller may sell the item through the tehtnica.info online shop and transfer the purchase price, after deduction of the Seller’s selling and other costs, to the Buyer. In the event that the value of the item is insignificant, the Seller may donate it to charity, in which case the Seller shall not be obliged to make any refund to the Buyer. The Seller shall inform the Buyer 15 days before the expiry of the 6-month retention period of the intended sale or donation of the item and, after the sale, of the price achieved and the amount of the costs and the transfer of the balance of the purchase price to the Buyer’s transaction account.
Protection of personal data
The Provider is committed to the permanent protection of all personal data of the User in accordance with ZVOP-1.
The Provider shall store indefinitely the data of customers who have made a purchase in the online shop or who have subscribed to our periodic e-newsletter.
The Provider will use the personal data exclusively for the purpose of order fulfilment (sending information material, offers, invoices) and other necessary communication.
Under no circumstances will the user’s data be passed on to unauthorised persons.
The user is also responsible for the protection of their personal data by ensuring that their computer is protected by appropriate software (anti-virus). The user may at any time request the deletion of their data from our customer database or, if they are subscribed to our newsletter, they may unsubscribe themselves via email. UNSUBSCRIBE
The Provider will contact the User by means of distance communication only if the User does not expressly object.
The advertisement emails will contain the following elements:
- they will be clearly and unambiguously identified as advertising messages,
- the sender will be clearly identifiable,
- various campaigns, promotions and other marketing techniques will be identified as such. The conditions for participation in them will also be clearly defined,
- the means of opting out of receiving advertising messages will be clearly presented,
- the user’s wish not to receive advertising messages will be explicitly respected by the provider.
Reviews, opinions and recommendations
The reviews, opinions and recommendations written by customers are part of the functionality of the online shop and are intended for the community of all users.
The Provider allows any user of the online shop to write a review and the Provider reviews them before final publication. The Provider will not publish reviews or contributions that are in any way offensive, inappropriate or which, in the Provider’s opinion, do not offer any benefit to other users and visitors.
By submitting an opinion or comment, the Customer expressly agrees to the terms and conditions of use of his/her opinion or comment and authorises the Provider to publish part or all of the text in all electronic and other media. The Provider shall have the right to use the content of the opinion or comment for an unlimited period of time and for any purpose in the Provider’s commercial interest, including publication in advertisements or other marketing communications. The author of the opinion also declares and warrants that he/she is the owner of the material and moral copyrights of the opinions and comments written and that he/she assigns these rights to the Provider on a non-exclusive and perpetual basis.
The Provider reserves the right to change the Terms and Conditions at any time and in any manner, for any reason and without prior notice.
Complaints and disputes
The Provider complies with the applicable consumer protection legislation. The Provider shall make every effort to comply with its obligation to set up an effective complaints handling system and to designate a person whom the Customer may contact by telephone or e-mail in the event of problems. A complaint shall be made via the following e-mail address. The complaint handling process is confidential.
The Provider acknowledges that an essential characteristic of a consumer dispute, at least as far as judicial settlement is concerned, is its disproportion between the economic value of the claim and the costs incurred in resolving the dispute itself. This is also the main obstacle to a consumer not bringing a dispute before the courts. Therefore, the provider shall make every effort to resolve any disputes amicably.
Out-of-court settlement of consumer disputes
In accordance with legal norms, Techco.eu does not recognise any provider of out-of-court consumer dispute resolution as competent to resolve a consumer dispute that a consumer may bring under the Act on Out-of-Court Consumer Dispute Resolution.
Tehtnica.info, as a provider of goods and services offering online trade in the territory of the Republic of Slovenia, publishes on its website an electronic link to the Online Consumer Dispute Resolution Platform (ODRP). The platform is available to consumers here.
The above-mentioned regime is based on the Act on Out-of-Court Settlement of Consumer Disputes, Regulation (EU) No 524/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council on online dispute resolution for consumer disputes and amending Regulation (EC) No 2016/2004 and Directive 2009/22/EC.
We wish you a fun and pleasant shopping!
