- Remedies for material defects
A defect is material if:
- the item does not have the properties necessary for its normal use or for traffic;
- the item does not have the properties necessary for a particular use for which the buyer is purchasing it and which were known or should have been known to the seller;
- the item does not have the expressly or impliedly agreed properties or characteristics;
- the seller has delivered an item that does not correspond to the sample or model, unless the sample or model was shown only for notification.
The Buyer must notify the Seller and provide a precise description of the defect via the customer support chat on our website within two months of the day on which the defect was discovered. The Seller is not responsible for defects that occur after 2 years from the date of purchase. The Buyer must allow the Seller to inspect the product.
If the user (buyer) complains about a product within the first six months after receiving it, the Seller must prove that the complaint is unfounded, meaning that the product does not have a defect. If the user (buyer) files a complaint after six months from receiving the product, the existence of the defect must be proven by the user (buyer) themselves.
The user who has properly notified the Seller of the defect has the right to demand from the seller:
- to remedy the defect in the item, or
- to return a proportionate amount of the paid price in relation to the defect, or
- to replace the defective item with a new item that is free of defects, or
- to refund the paid amount.
The decision as to which guarantee claim to assert is exclusively up to the consumer and is not tied to any particular order of asserting them.
If the existence of a defect in the item is not disputed, the Seller must comply with the user’s request as soon as possible, but no later than within eight days.
The Seller must respond in writing to the user’s request no later than eight days after receiving it, if the existence of a defect in the item or an irregularity in the service performed is disputed.
- Satisfaction Guarantee
We are committed to the highest ethical standards in business and consumer protection, which is also reflected in our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
In accordance with the conditions specified below, we provide a 60-day return option, i.e. a satisfaction guarantee. This allows the customer (buyer) to return purchased products even after the expiration of the 14-day right of withdrawal. The customer (buyer) can do so by sending the products back to us (at the address Agrosloven z.o.o., Trstenik 1C, 4204 Golnik). We will refund the full purchase price of the products to the customer, except for shipping and return costs, provided that the buyer has fulfilled all conditions specified below.
To claim the satisfaction guarantee, the customer (buyer) must send an email to [email protected] with the subject “Return within 60 days”. In the message, the customer must state the reasons for the return. By sending the email, the customer (buyer) is deemed to be exercising their right to claim the satisfaction guarantee. This email is the only valid way to claim the satisfaction guarantee. The provider does not consider any other form of communication in this regard.
Products that have a satisfaction guarantee are clearly marked in the online store. If the customer (buyer) is not satisfied with the purchase, the merchant will refund the full purchase price within 30 days from the date of claiming the satisfaction guarantee. The only cost that the customer (buyer) bears for claiming the satisfaction guarantee is the cost of returning the products to the merchant.
The satisfaction guarantee is valid for 60 days from the receipt of the shipment for one package of Kruceficx products. The customer (buyer) can also receive a refund for packages purchased together with an already opened product, but the customer (buyer) must return the unused products in their original packaging and quantities, and must also return the packaging of the already used products, unless they have been destroyed, damaged, lost, or their quantity has decreased without the customer (buyer) having used them.
The satisfaction guarantee can only be claimed with the original invoice.
The customer (buyer) cannot claim the satisfaction guarantee more than once a year for the same product. Within one year, the customer (buyer) can claim a maximum of three satisfaction guarantees for different products.
The merchant guarantees that the product will work according to its intended purpose if the user (buyer) follows the instructions provided. This is the basis for claiming the satisfaction guarantee. For more information on the product return process, please contact us at [email protected].
The merchant will deliver the ordered products to the user (buyer) within the agreed-upon timeframe. Delivery is only possible to addresses in the Republic of Slovenia. The contractual partners of the merchant for package delivery are indicated at the end of the purchasing process. The merchant reserves the right to choose a different delivery service if it can fulfill the order more efficiently.
If there is visible damage to the packaging or goods, the buyer must make a complaint to the provider or delivery service upon receiving the goods. The buyer is not obligated to accept such goods and can reject the shipment. If the package is physically damaged, missing its contents, shows signs of being opened, or if the products in the package are damaged but the buyer still accepts it, the buyer must initiate a complaint process with the provider.
The merchant uses appropriate technological and organizational measures to protect the transmission and storage of personal data and payments.
Authorized online systems are responsible for secure authorizations and credit card transactions. Credit card authorizations are performed in real-time with immediate verification of the data by banks. Card data is not stored on the merchant’s server.
The user is also responsible for their own security, by ensuring the security of their username and password and by using appropriate antivirus software.
The merchant does their best to ensure the timeliness and correctness of the information published in their online store, but product characteristics, delivery times, or prices can change so quickly that the merchant may not be able to correct the information in time.
Although the merchant strives to provide accurate photos of the products for sale in their online store, all photos must be taken as symbolic. Photos do not guarantee the characteristics of the product.
- Complaints, Disputes, and Use of Law
The merchant complies with applicable consumer protection regulations. The merchant has an effective system for handling complaints and has designated a person with whom the user (buyer) can contact via email in case of problems. In the event of problems or complaints, the user (buyer) contacts the merchant via email. The complaint resolution process is confidential.
The merchant will confirm receipt of the complaint within five business days and resolve the solution to the warranty or guarantee claim within the legally prescribed period. The merchant will do their best to resolve any disputes amicably. If an amicable solution cannot be reached, the responsible local court under Article 51 of the Civil Procedure Act (ZPP) for resolving all disputes between the merchant and the user (buyer) is the court in the territorial jurisdiction in which the obligation subject to the dispute would need to be fulfilled.
These General Terms and Conditions of Business and all disputes between the Merchant and the user (buyer) shall be governed and interpreted in accordance with Slovenian law.
For all relationships and rights and obligations that are not regulated by these General Terms and Conditions of Business, the provisions of the Obligations Code, the Electronic Commerce on the Market Act, the Personal Data Protection Act, and the Consumer Protection Act shall apply accordingly.
14.1 Out-of-Court Consumer Dispute Resolution
In accordance with legal norms, the Merchant does not recognize any out-of-court consumer dispute resolution provider as competent to resolve a consumer dispute that the consumer could initiate under the Out-of-Court Consumer Dispute Resolution Act (hereinafter: ZlsRPS).
In the event that the customer/consumer is not satisfied with the solution to the complaint, the consumer can file a proposal for initiating out-of-court resolution of a specific consumer dispute through the European platform for online consumer dispute resolution (SRPS) in accordance with the ZlsRPS. Agrosloven also publishes an electronic link to the European SRPS in accordance with the ZlsRPS: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home2.show&lng=SL
The customer can also decide to file a lawsuit with the competent court based on their permanent residence.

Each change and/or supplement to the General Terms and Conditions of Business shall become effective and applicable eight days after the publication of the changes and/or supplements.
