Probotanic Ina Kruljac s.p. has a right to call the buyer on his or her phone number when it wants to check the accuracy of the entered data or to confirm some shipping details.

If the order has already been shipped, the buyer rejects the package and returns it to the delivery service provider.

10. The purchase process for legal persons
 

The purchase process for legal persons is the same as for natural persons with only one exception - when entering his or her data, a buyer also needs to enter the company information in the field Company information where he or she needs to provide the seller with full official name of the company, company's address and company's VAT number.

11. The buyer's right to retract the contract

 

On the basis of Zakon o varstvu potrošnikov - ZVPot (Consumer Protection Act), a buyer is entitled to inform the seller within 14 days after the purchase that he or she is retracting the contract, without having to state the reasons for his or her decision. This term starts one day after the purchase of products.

The buyer needs to notify the seller of his or her withdrawal from the contract via the following e-mail address: info@probotanic-slovenia.si

You can use the online contact form available here to notify us of your withdrawal from the contract.

In the case of withdrawal from the contract, the buyer returns his products:

  • via post to the company's official address: Ilirska cesta 6, 8310 Šentjernej, Slovenia or

  • in person at the company's branch location: Ilirska cesta 6, 8310 Šentjernej, Slovenia.
     

The return of the received products to the company within the set time limit for contract withdrawal counts as a message for contract withdrawal.

The buyer must return the purchased items undamaged and in the same amount/state unless the item is destroyed, damaged, lost or its quantity has been reduced without the buyer's fault. The buyer cannot use the products until the withdrawal from the contract has been finalized. The buyer is entitled to carry out an inspection of items to the necessary extent to determine the actual state of the products. Using a product in a way that falls out of the previously mentioned conditions counts as product use, which means that the buyer has lost his or her right to retract the contract.

The only cost of the withdrawal from the contract for the buyer is the cost of returning the purchased products (the cost of returning the products depends on the prices set by the delivery service provider and depends on the fact if the products are treated as a letter/package/cargo). The purchased products have to be returned to the seller within 30 days when the e-mail regarding the contract (purchase) withdrawal was sent. The buyer is not entitled to the refund of shipping costs.

The refund of payments will be made as soon as possible, but no later than 30 days after the receipt of returned products. In order to ensure certainty, accuracy and timeliness of refund and to ensure the official records of payments, the refund is carried out exclusively by wire transfer to the buyer's bank account. Refund in cash is not possible!

In case of withdrawal from the contract where a gift card or some other ways of discount were used, these methods of payment are considered discounts and thus they are not refunded. The buyer receives on his bank account only the amount that was paid in cash/credit card/PayPal. The amount paid by gift certificate or some other way of discount is refunded by issuing a gift card in the remaining amount. During contract withdrawal a gift card is treated as a method of payment and is refunded in the same way (as a gift card), the remaining amount is refunded to the buyer's bank account.
