The provider assumes no liability for possible consequences of using the online store and its content, including any material or non-material damage. Users shall bear sole responsibility for using the content in the online store to the best of their ability.
Even though the online store is secured with the SSL protocol, there is a risk of abuse of the online store, which is out of the provider’s control. Therefore, the provider excludes its liability in the event of any downloading of malicious software that can be installed on the user’s device used to access the online store. The provider advises the users to properly educate themselves about the risk of malware infection and protect their devices against potential malware downloading.
In spite of the provider’s best effort to ensure accurate and updated information in the online store, there is a risk that due to the multiplicity of products or rapid changes to information, such information on items, delivery terms, prices or any other information may differ from that indicated in the online store or may be incomplete. Users shall be the sole responsible for verifying the information when there is a suspicion that the information is incorrect and incomplete. We reserve the right to change the product information, including any images and all other related information, without prior notice.
The provider shall not be responsible for occasional online store disruptions, any inaccuracy of information in the online store as well as any damage caused as a result of inaccessibility, use or impossibility of using the information in the online store.
If a user has ordered an item having incorrect or incomplete information displayed, the provider shall notify the user thereof and enable the user to withdraw from the purchase. If a user establishes, after placing an order and prior to receiving the item, that the information indicated for the item is wrong, the user shall report the online shop error and the provider shall enable the user to cancel or change the order.
The provider updates the product images in the online store on a regular basis. Nevertheless, all product images are of illustrative nature. Some properties of an item in the image do not reflect the actual state of items (e.g. size of the item in the image).
The provider shall not be held liable for the content of the online shop user-generated comments. The provider may reject the comments containing blatant falsehoods, misleading facts or offensive language to other users as well as to the provider.
The provider reserves the right to make substantive and other changes to the general terms and conditions any time and in any way whatsoever, irrespective of the reason and without prior notice.
The provider reserves the right to modify the items offered online without prior notice. The provider makes every effort to ensure that the data published on the website is updated and accurate. It may happen, though, that the provider is unable to deliver an item to a customer because the item is sold out and not in stock. Nonetheless, the properties of an item, its delivery term or price may change so quickly that the provider is unable to update the information on the website. In such a case, the provider shall notify customers of changes and enable them to cancel the order or get a replacement for the ordered item.
The provider reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time and in any way whatsoever, regardless of the reason and without prior notice.
In accordance with the legal norms, Serena d.o.o. does not recognise any provider of the out-of-court resolution of consumer disputes as competent to resolve any consumer disputes initiated by consumers in accordance with the Out-of-Court Settlement of Consumer Disputes Act.
Serena d.o.o., as a provider of goods and services, offering online shopping in the territory of the Republic of Slovenia, displays a link on its website to the online dispute resolution platform for consumer disputes (“SRPS”). The platform is available to the consumers here.
The above arrangement is based on the Out-of-Court Resolution of the Consumer Disputes Act, 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 2006/2004 and Directive 2009/22/EC.
In accordance with the Obligations Codes, a customer shall collect a parcel and pay the COD amount. If a customer fails to collect the goods ordered according to the cash on delivery principle and they are returned to the company’s address after the expiry of the waiting period of fifteen (15) days at the post office, this shall NOT be considered a withdrawal from the contract, since the latter is still validly concluded and involves a unilateral unannounced customer’s withdrawal from the contract. If a customer fails to collect a parcel, this causes financial damage to the company. Therefore, the customer shall be held liable for payment of delivery costs and costs of delivery/return of items to the company and the seller shall issue an invoice to be settled by the customer since the contract has not been terminated. In the event of non-payment of an invoice, a debt recovery procedure is conducted by an outsourced service provider. In the event of fake orders, the IP will be submitted for further processing as fraud. The costs of non-acceptance amount to EUR 10.00 and include administrative costs, packaging costs, costs of delivery and return.
The customer is bound by the general terms and conditions, which become effective at the moment of the purchase (online order submission). The user is notified of the general terms and conditions before every order submission and confirms his or her familiarity with the terms and conditions by placing the order.
