ORDER CONFIRMED

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

When supplying an item that is not in stock in own warehouse, then is the provider exclusively dependent on a supply by a manufacturer or a craftsman and a time in which the latter can deliver an item to the provider. The customer is informed of an updated information relating to a supply of an item by the provider via an email. 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 an order and return to the customer any already paid funds. In this case the customer decides either the rest of the items in the order 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 a non-delivery of items, which the provider does not have in stock in his own warehouse.

THE DISPATCHED ITEMS

The provider prepares and dispatches items within an agreed time period and he informs the customer of it via an 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 an email. The provider also informs the customer about a 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 exactly the same as for a physical 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 other legal entity to return the purchased items under the warranty terms. The before-mentioned legal entities do not have a possibility to withdraw without a reason from the contract within 14 days of receiving an item, as is the case with a consumer (physical person).
