Liability of the company for material defects in accordance with Article 37 and Article 37(a)(b)(c)(č) of the Consumer Protection Act (ZVPot).

How is the suitability of products verified?

A product is checked against a faultless product of the same type. At the same time, the suitability of the product is also verified on the basis of the producer's statements on the product itself.

How to enforce the rights arising from material defects?

The buyer shall inform us of any material defects together with a detailed description thereof within the statutorily defined time limit. At the same time, the buyer shall allow us to inspect the product. The form for enforcing the rights arising from material defects is availablehere.

The rights arising from material defects are governed more in detail by the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act.

The above-mentioned time limit starts running on the day of acceptance of the products.

The consumer shall notify the seller of their withdrawal from the contract to the seller's e-mail:makom@makom.si.

If they decide to withdraw from the contract, the consumer shall return the product(s) either via mail to the seller’s address: Koroška cesta 64, 3320 Velenje, or in person at the seller’s seat.

If the products are returned to the company within the time limit stipulated for withdrawal from the contract, this is considered the notice of withdrawal from the contract.

The consumer shall return to the seller the undamaged product in the unchanged quantity, unless the product has been destroyed, damaged or lost, or the quantity of the product was decreased for reasons that cannot be attributable to the consumer. In the period up to the date of withdrawal from the contract, the consumer may not use the products without any limitations. The consumer may inspect and test the products to the extent necessary for identifying the actual condition the products are in. The consumer shall be responsible for a decrease in the value of the goods if such decrease is a consequence of acts not necessary for the purposes of identifying the nature, properties and functioning of the goods.

The only cost the consumer incurs on account of withdrawing from the contract is the cost of returning the goods (which is, if the goods are shipped, charged as per the applicable price list of the delivery service, and depends on whether the goods are considered a shipment/package/cargo). The product shall be returned to the seller no later than within 30 days of the sent notice of withdrawal from the contract (purchase).

The consumer may not withdraw from the contract when the product: was designed specifically for them or adapted to their personal needs, due to its nature does not qualify for a return, is a perishable product or is past its expiry date.

The customer may not withdraw from the contract when such contract involves:

  • goods or services whose price depends on market fluctuations which the company cannot control, and which may arise within the time limit stipulated for withdrawal from the contract.

Refunds for the returned goods will be made as soon as possible and no later than within 14 days of receipt of the notice of withdrawal from the contract. In order to ensure certainty, accuracy and timeliness of refunds and keeping of the records considering the payments, all refunds are made by wiring the amount to the consumer’s bank account. Cash refunds are not possible!

When withdrawing from a contract involving a bonus, promo or discount code, these shall be considered as a discount and shall not be refunded to the consumer. The bank account of the latter will only be credited for the amount they paid for the product(s). A gift card shall be considered a means of payment and shall be returned to the user as a gift card, while the amount paid shall be credited to the user’s bank account.

In rare cases, when products are not returned in accordance with the Consumer Protection Act, the consumer may be offered compensation determined on the basis of the report drawn up at the time of returning the product(s). Such reduced compensation shall be deemed approved when confirmed by the consumer via e-mail. The consumer may use such compensation solely for ordering another product of the same or higher value.

The right to be refunded the purchase price when enforcing the warranty or material defect are defined more in detail in theConsumer Protection Act(unofficial consolidated text).

The customer may not withdraw from the contract when such contract involves:

  • goods or services whose price depends on market fluctuations which the company cannot control, and which may arise within the time limit stipulated for the withdrawal from the contract.

Complaints and disputes
