VITAL-AIM d.o.o. assumes no responsibility for damage resulting from longer delivery times or from the non-delivery of items by VITAL-AIM d.o.o. out of stock in its own warehouse.
2. The order has been shipped The online store prepares and dispatches the item within the agreed deadline and informs the buyer by email. VITAL-AIM d.o.o. also informs the buyer by e-mail about the policy of withdrawing from the contract, where to turn in case of delay in delivery and where to turn in case of complaint. Should the buyer decide to cancel the order in due time, he must immediately inform the seller by telephone by calling the general help number +386 (0)41 388 394 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. If the order is already shipped, the buyer has to reject it on delivery. The right to withdraw from the contract The buyer (the above applies only to natural persons who acquire an item for purposes outside their own gainful activity) has the right to inform the seller within 14 days of the receipt of the item that he is withdrawing from the contract without having to give a reason for his decision. The deadline begins to count one day after the date of receipt of the items. The cancellation of the contract shall be reported to the seller by e-mail: email@example.com. In case of cancellation of the contract, the item is returned to the seller or returned by post to the seller's address: VITAL-AIM d.o.o., Podraga 46, 5272 Podnanos, Slovenia or personally brought to the company's headquarters by prior arrangement. The return of the items received to the company within the termination period is considered as a notice of termination. The buyer must return the item to the seller undamaged and in unchanged quantity, unless the item is destroyed, defective, lost or its quantity reduced without the buyer being at fault. The buyer of the items must not freely use them prior to the contract being terminated. The buyer may inspect and test the items to the extent necessary to determine the actual condition. Testing an item in ways that deviate from the above is considered to be use of an article, which means that the buyer thereby loses the right to withdraw from the contract. The only cost that is borne by the buyer in connection with the cancellation of the contract is the cost of returning the items (which in the case of shipment is charged according to the price list of the delivery service and depends on the type of shipment). The item must be returned to the seller within 30 days of sending the notice of withdrawal from the contract (purchase). The buyer is not entitled to withdraw from the contract in contracts whose object is an item made according to the exact instructions of the buyer, which was adapted to his personal needs, which by its nature is not suitable for a refund, that is perishable or which has expired. There is no possibility of withdrawal from the purchase of products if the buyer has already opened the security seal. Payments will be refunded as soon as possible and no later than 30 days after receiving the notice of withdrawal. In order to ensure the accuracy and timeliness of the return and to provide a record of payments, the refund of the payment to the buyer is made exclusively by transferring to his bank account. Cash refunds are not possible! In exceptional cases, when the items are not returned in accordance with ZVPot, we can offer the buyer the item with the appropriate compensation, which is determined by the upon return. This type of buyback is taken into account after buyer confirmation email. The buyer may use the balance from the buyback exclusively for ordering another item of equal or higher value from the online store. The right to a refund in case of material errors is more closely regulated by the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act (unofficial consolidated text).

Complaints and disputes VITAL-AIM d.o.o. complies with applicable consumer protection legislation. VITAL-AIM d.o.o. endeavors to fulfill its duty to provide an effective complaints system.
