Due to the nature of the online business, the offer on the UtaUta online store website can be updated and changed frequently and quickly.

Prices are presented as online prices. An online price is a price applicable to an online purchase in case of an invoice-based 100% payment transfer to a specified bank account. Prices in the online store are designed by UtaUta d.o.o. and are valid for a purchase through the www.utauta.si.

A customer can choose between the following payment methods:

  • an advance payment to the provider’s transaction account,
  • a PayPal payment, which also enables credit card payments – is not available yet.

The provider issues an invoice on a durable medium to the customer with defined costs and instructions on how to withdraw from the purchase and return an item if necessary and possible. A sale/purchase contract (“an order”) is sent electronically to the customer’s email address.

When delivering an ordered item, the provider sends an invoice in a PDF format to the customer’s email address, or an invoice will be included in a package together with the ordered items.

An invoice contains price details and all costs associated with the purchase and a notice of the right of a withdrawal from the contract.

The customer is obliged to check for the correctness of information before placing an order. Any subsequent objections to an issued invoice will not be accepted.

All product prices are in EUR and include value added tax (VAT). All prices in the online store are prices of products and do not include any shipping costs.

A price is valid for all the online store users. A visitor becomes a user by registering at an online store as a member or by signing in once as a guest in the online store.

Prices are guaranteed for the day of the order and could be subject to daily changes without prior notice.

Prices are valid in case of a payment with the above stated payment methods under the above stated conditions.

Despite an effort to provide the most up-to-date and correct information, it is possible for a price to be incorrect. In this case, or if the price of an item changes during the processing of an order, the provider will allow the customer to cancel the purchase.

The sale/purchase contract between the provider and the customer is concluded when the provider confirms an order (the customer receives an email with information on the order status). From that moment on, all prices and other terms are fixed and apply to both the provider and the customer.

Discounts, promotional codes, etc. are not cumulative. Gift certificates and promotional codes cannot be exchanged for cash.

The provider ensures that an item will be delivered within an agreed timeframe.

The provider sends products in stock to a customer’s address within 10 working days (usually in 3 days) counted from the date of payment of an order. If a product is out of stock, the customer is informed of it. The ordered product is shipped by the provider within 30 working days. A delivery will not be made on Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday. UtaUta d.o.o. reserves the right to a longer delivery time, as we are bound by availability of manufacturers or craftsmen for item production.

Shipping costs are calculated according to the weight of a product: shipping costs for a light product is 1.90 EUR, and for a heavier one 5.90 EUR.

Product weight is shown on the product page. Products that can be shipped in one package are, if possible, shipped as one shipment.

The contractual delivery partner is Post of Slovenia, and in some cases GLS Slovenia. The provider reserves the right to choose another delivery service so the order can be delivered more efficiently.

Items in stock are shipped within 3 working days from payment date, otherwise delivery time is up to 30 business days, depending on the product. In case the delivery time is extended, the buyer is informed. In case an extended delivery time is not suitable for the customer, the product is replaced with an another or a purchase is refunded.

ORDER ACCEPTED

After placing an order, the customer receives an order confirmation email. The customer has access to the status and content of the order. After the provider receives the order, the customer is informed when the product will be dispatched.

In case of a large order and in case you are in a hurry, please contact us at narocila@utauta.si.

ORDER CONFIRMED

When an order is processed it gets an “in process” status. The provider inspects the order, checks the availability of an item and confirms or rejects the order.

When supplying an item that is not in stock in the provider’s warehouse, the provider depends exclusively on the manufacturers and their ability to supply an item. The customer is informed via email of all the updated information related to the supply of the item. If a delivery time is very long and the customer does not want to wait, the customer can inform the provider to remove an item from the order and return to the customer any already paid funds. In this case the customer decides that either the rest of the items are still to be delivered or the whole order is canceled.

The provider accepts no liability for any damage caused by a longer delivery period or due to non-delivery of items, which the provider does not have in stock in their own warehouse.

THE DISPATCHED ITEMS

The provider prepares and dispatches items within an agreed time period and he informs the customer of it via email. After a package has been shipped, the order is given a status of “completed”. The customer receives an invoice for the purchased items, which is included in a shipment or sent by email. The provider also informs the customer about the return policy of the purchased items, what to do in case of a delivery delay and what to do in case of a complaint.

The purchase process for a legal entity is the same as for a natural person. If you would like an invoice for a company, please let us know at info@utauta.si. We allow a company, a sole proprietor and any other legal entity to return the purchased items under the warranty terms. Unlike natural persons, legal entities do not have the right to withdraw from the contract within 14 days of receiving an item without stating the reason for the withdrawal.

It is not possible for a legal entity to claim a defective product and a refund. The General Terms and Conditions of utauta.si also apply to a purchase by a legal entity.

Company UtaUta d.o.o. guarantees safety of a product in its original form. An UtaUta product is a subject to a 6-month limited warranty counted from the date of the purchase and claimed by the first owner. This warranty applies only to a product in its original condition. The customer must report any obvious product defect via email or regular mail within 2 weeks after the delivery of the items. Photographs of the damaged items must be attached.

An item is under warranty, if stated so on the warranty certificate or invoice. A warranty is only valid if the customer follows instructions on a warranty certificate. When claiming a warranty, the customer must also attach an invoice of the purchased item. A warranty timeframe is indicated on a warranty certificate or on an invoice.

Warranty information is also provided on a product introduction website page. If there is no warranty information, then the item does not have a warranty, or information about it is unknown at the time. In the latter case, the customer may contact the provider to be provided with the up-to-date information.

A warranty covers a defect in material and production. It does not cover damage resulting from a normal or abnormal use, wear, misuse, hits or accidents. It neither covers damage caused by biting or any other form of a damage caused by an animal. A warranty does not cover damage of a product that occurred due to a pet discharge. If an original defect of an item is declared, the item can be repaired or replaced.

In case of a malfunction due to improper use, negligent handling, mechanical damage and malfunction in an event of greater force, a warranty does not apply. Neither can a warranty be applied if a product shows tampering by an other unauthorized person, a mismanagement or negligent conduct.

The warranty does not apply if an item is not maintained in accordance with the use and maintenance instructions.

In case a customer is not satisfied with the ordered item, they have the right, in accordance with the Consumer Protection Act, to notify us with cancellation form via email narocila@utauta.si within 14 days of receiving an item, stating that the customer withdraws from the contract. According to the law, there is no need to state the reason for withdrawal from the contract. See also Online Dispute Resolution.

The customer does not have the right to withdraw from the contract when an item was custom-made for the customer and adapted to their personal needs and is therefore not eligible to be returned.

The customer must return an item no later than 14 days after the withdrawal from the contract. An item must be unused and undamaged, except if damage on an item was not caused by the customer. The return of an item is considered on time if a shipment is dispatched to a delivery service within the declared period.

The customer may not use the product limitlessly until terminating the contract. They may inspect and test the item to the extent necessary to determine its actual condition. Testing of an item which deviates from the latter is considered item usage which results in the customer losing the right to withdraw from the contract.

When returning an item, the customer needs to pay for the costs of the return shipping. A refund will be paid as soon as possible and no later than 14 days after receiving the notice of the customer’s withdrawal from the contract. A refund will be withheld if the customer fails to deliver the claimed item or fails to provide a receipt of a returned shipment within the withdrawal period.

In order to ensure that a refund is certain, accurate and on time and to maintain our record of payments, a refund to the customer is made exclusively by a transfer to a customer’s bank or PayPal account. A cash refund is not possible.

A return of a purchased item to the provider within the withdrawal period shall be considered as a notice of a withdrawal from the contract.

The right to a refund, warranty, material defect and improperly performed services are regulated by the Consumer Protection Act.

When returning an item to the provider UtaUta d.o.o. it is necessary to enclose a contract cancellation form, which you send to narocila@utauta.si. Please also attach a copy of an invoice and photos of the claimed item.
