2. Purchase process, prices and payment
There is no need for a user to sign up when ordering from an Online Store. The Buyer must enter the required personal information (name, surname, address, e-mail address, telephone number) when placing an order. The Online Store products can only be ordered for the territory of the Republic of Slovenia. An order can only be placed in the Slovenian language.
An order placed represents a sales contract that becomes effective the moment when the Seller confirms the order. Immediately after receiving the order, the Seller will confirm the order by sending the Buyer an electronic confirmation to the e-mail which the Buyer has provided to the Seller at the time of purchase.
The Buyer chooses the type, size and quantity of the product. Before placing an order, the Buyer must inspect the shopping cart by clicking the "Confirm and Pay" button, make any adjustments and confirm the order. Once the order has been placed, it is impossible to change the content or the total sum of the order. After confirming the purchase, an e-invoice will be displayed for the Buyer to have it printed and saved.
Prior to purchasing a product, the Buyer as a natural person will be informed that the Seller is Kovanec Unlimited d.o.o., Slovenska cesta 55A, 1000 Ljubljana, as well as about information on the ordered products (product name, ordered quantity of each product), the price of products, including all taxes and other duties and discounts, shipping costs, information that, by their very nature, products ordered through the Online Store are not eligible for return, which is in accordance
with the Article 43 of the Consumer Protection Act, as well as about contact information to which they may submit any objections, comments, requests and statements. Prices can be changed without notice.
The prices are valid at the time when the order is placed in the Online Store and they remain valid until cancellation. The Buyer can pay for the goods purchased at the Online Store by invoice, which the Seller sends to the Buyer via email. When paying by invoice, the Buyer shall settle the purchase price by transferring money to the Seller's bank account. The Buyer is obliged to check the amount of payment fee with the bank with which they will make the transfer. The Seller
will only send the purchased goods to the Buyer after receiving the payment. The time for the delivery of goods to the Buyer starts from that moment onwards.
The Seller, i.e. Kovanec Unlimited d.o.o., issues an invoice to the Buyer in an electronic form, which the Buyer will receive to their e-mail account. By purchasing products from the Online Store, the Buyer agrees that the Seller will issue an e-invoice. In order to receive an e-invoice, the Buyer must edit the software settings on their device accordingly.
The prices listed at www.shieldmaske.si do not include postal or shipping costs. The Buyer is aware of the amount of these costs before confirming the order placement.
The Seller will send the ordered products through the Pošta Slovenije postal service or the delivery services with which the Seller cooperates.
The Seller reserves the right to refuse the order acceptance if the quantities of goods which the Buyer would like to purchase in the Online Store clearly exceed the quantities intended for the ordinary personal use of the individual.
4. The consumer’s right of withdrawal from the purchase & the return of goods
The Consumer has the right to inform the company (via the contact e-mail email@example.com) within 14 days from collecting the goods about their withdrawal from the contract, without stating the reason for their decision. The only cost for the Consumer in connection with the termination of the contract is the cost of returning the goods. The goods must be returned to the Seller within 14 days of sending the termination notice (purchase cancellation). The received goods must be
returned undamaged and unaltered, unless the goods have been destroyed or are defective or lost or if their quantity has been reduced through no fault of the Consumer. The company shall return the received payment applying the same payment method that was used by the Consumer, unless the payer settled the amount in cash to the delivery service courier. All payments received by the Seller from the delivery service are made through a transaction account, so the Seller agrees to make a
purchase price refund through the transaction account as soon as possible and no later than 14 days after the payment has been made.
Payments will be refunded as soon as possible and no later than 14 days after receiving the contract termination notice. The return of the received goods to the company within the termination notice period shall be considered the contract termination notice.
The cancellation form is available here: Attachment 1 and Attachment 2.
In the case of sales contracts, the Seller may withhold the return of received payments until such time as the goods have been returned or until the Consumer has provided proof that the goods have been sent back, unless the Seller offers the option of collecting the returned goods.
The Consumer has no right to terminate the contract, if the Consumer bought in the online store and the Seller has delivered to them the sealed goods that are ineligible for return for reasons of health or hygiene and the Consumer has opened the packaging after the delivery. The company supplies the Shield face masks in sealed bags. The bags are sealed with a self-adhesive seal tape that clearly indicates damage to the seal in case of the bag being opened. In the event that the
Consumer returns to the company the Shield masks with a damaged seal, the Consumer shall be deemed to have unsealed the delivered goods and, in accordance with point 7 of the fifth paragraph of the Article 43č of the Consumer Protection Act, shall not be entitled to withdraw from the sales contract. In such cases, the company is not obliged to refund the Consumer for the goods supplied, nor is the company liable to reimburse the costs for returning goods or any other costs.

- return part of the paid amount in proportion to the error or
- replace the defective goods with new flawless goods or
- return the amount paid.
