After receiving the order, the Trader verifies the availability of the ordered products and either confirms the order or rejects it with proper justification. In order to verify the information and ensure the accuracy of the delivery, the Trader can call the user (buyer) by telephone using the contact number the user (buyer) entered. Once the order is confirmed, the Trader notifies the user (buyer) of the delivery time by e-mail. The sale contract for the ordered products between the user (buyer) and Trader is concluded in this phase (see point 7).
The Trader issues a written invoice with a breakdown of costs to the user who purchases a product.

The buyer is responsible for any decrease in the value of the product resulting from its handling, unless it was necessary for determining the nature, characteristics and functionality of the product.
A cancellation message is sufficient for returning the purchased products within the cancellation period of the sale contract. The only cost for the user (buyer) while returning a product is the cost of delivery to the Trader.
The purchased products need to be returned to the Trader no later than 30 days after the placement of the order and the cancellation notice. You can inform the Trader of your intention to return a product by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at the following phone number: +385 1 33 77 058.
