6.2. The User can provide their notification of withdrawal from the contract using an unambiguous statement clearly indicating that the User is withdrawing from the contract; alternatively, the User can fill in the Form for the withdrawal from a contract by a consumer (Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, No. 139/2022) available online. We recommend that the Consumer issues their notification in writing, since they are the ones carrying the burden of proof related to their exercise of the right of withdrawal.
6.3. The User is deemed to have provided the withdrawal statement in a timely manner if the withdrawal statement is sent in a written form within the deadline set out for withdrawal from a contract.
6.4. The User must return the goods to the Company within 14 days of their written notification on the withdrawal from the contract, whereby the direct costs of the return of the goods shall be covered by the User (i.e. the Buyer). A copy of the document proving the identity of the goods and the buyer, which was enclosed during the delivery of the said goods, must also be enclosed. The Consumer shall be held responsible for the decrease in value of the goods, if the said decrease in value is a consequence of an action that is not required in order to determine the nature, properties and functioning of the goods, which is why we recommend that users return unused and undamaged goods, unchanged in quantity and still in their original packaging (the latter is important in order to protect the goods from being damaged in the process of returning the goods to the SOLINE company).
6.5. The decrease in value of goods that have been used (whereby the said use exceeded the limit of any tests performed in order to determine the nature, properties and functioning of the goods) amounts to a certain percentage of the regular retail price of goods on the day the goods were purchased. If the goods had been damaged due to an action of the User (e.g. if the goods or a component of a sales kit are damaged, changed in quantity or quality, or returned in non-original or damaged packaging), SOLINE is entitled to require the User to pay an indemnity for the entire damage caused to the goods, pursuant to the core principles of liability for damages. The amount of the liability of the User for the payment for the decrease in value of goods can be equal to the amount of the full, regular retail price of the goods on the date of purchase of said goods, considering the scope of the decrease in value.
6.6. SOLINE shall reimburse the User for all payments performed as soon as possible, but in no event later than within 14 days of receiving the notification of withdrawal from the contract. When it comes to sales contracts, SOLINE can suspend the reimbursement of the received payments until it receives the returned goods, or until the User presents the Company with proof that the goods have actually been sent back to the Company.
6.7. SOLINE shall return to the consumer the payments received using the same means of payment as initially used by the consumer, unless the consumer has explicitly agreed to use another means of payment and if the consumer does not bear any costs as a result.
6.8. If the user withdraws from the service contract after the service has already started to be performed but before the end of the notice period, based on the explicit and prior consent of the user indicating that the user waives the right to withdraw from the contract after the company completely fulfils the contract, the user shall pay to the Company a sum that is proportionate to the services that have been performed until the day that the Company was informed of the user's withdrawal from the contract. In this case, the said proportionate part is calculated considering the total value of the service contract. In the case of withdrawal from the contract on the purchase of leased quantities of services, the used services shall be invoiced to the user in terms of the applicable price list of the said services available on-line and at other points of sale of SOLINE..
