2.2. Issuance of a pro forma invoice: the obligations of the company Bevec d.o.o. begin on the day of payment of the amount specified in the pro forma invoice, which also serves as the basis for order confirmation.
2.3. Although we make every effort to provide accurate photographs of the products we sell, all photographs should be interpreted as symbolic. Pictures do not guarantee the product features. Sketches, technical drawings, and other appendices or documents attached to the offer are only binding if explicitly specified in the order. These attachments or documents are only for the buyer's personal use and may not be reproduced or made available to third parties without our written permission.
2.4. If the buyer cancels the order, the buyer is obligated to reimburse Bevec d.o.o. for all costs of goods and work incurred in connection with the same order up to the date of cancellation.

The payment deadline starts on the day of dispatch of the goods.
2.6. Notwithstanding the preceding paragraph, the buyer may not cancel or change the order after receiving written confirmation from the Seller if the goods are made according to the buyer's instructions and plans, or exclusively for the buyer, unless the Seller expressly agrees.

3. Limitation of liability and price

3.1. While Bevec d.o.o. makes every effort to ensure the accuracy and up-to-datedness of the information published on the website, product characteristics, delivery time, or price may change so quickly that Bevec d.o.o. fails to correct the information published online. In such a case, we will notify the buyer of the changes and give him the option to change or cancel the order.

We understand that delivery times may be extended due to major machine breakdowns in our supplier's factory or in the company Bevec d.o.o., strikes, natural and other disasters, martial law, and the like. We also consider a significant extension of our suppliers' delivery periods due to the extension of their sub-suppliers' delivery periods to be a force majeure. In such cases, the delivery period is extended by the time of force majeure and the time required to restart production at our supplier.
4.5. In the event of a delivery delay, the buyer may set a new reasonable delivery period within which the company Bevec d.o.o. must deliver the goods, or the buyer may withdraw from the order without obligation.

Compensation can be up to 0.5% of the value of delivery for each week of delay, or up to 5% of the total value of partial delivery of goods that the buyer could not use in time and in accordance with the order, and the buyer can withdraw from the order.

In this case, we are entitled to the return of goods that the buyer has not paid for. The buyer has no right to possession of the goods, and Bevec d.o.o. takes it over from such a client.
6.8. The buyer has eight (8) days from receipt to reject the invoice (the disputed amount of the invoice mentioned in the previous paragraph). The buyer must explain and justify the rejection of the invoice. In the event of a delay or an unfounded or insufficient explanation, the buyer is deemed to have accepted the invoice in full.
6.9. If the buyer fails to pay within fifteen (15) days, the Seller may change the terms of sale, even for deliveries already made but not yet paid for, or withdraw from the contract without notice. In this case, the buyer also grants the Seller irrevocable and unconditional permission to enter the premises where the Buyer keeps the goods at any time and take back the goods that have not been paid for, or goods in the equivalent of the claim. This does not imply that the company Bevec has withdrawn from the contractual relationship unless he expressly states so in writing upon receipt of the goods.

7.4. Until all obligations are met, the buyer is required to participate in all measures to protect our property or property rights over our goods.

8. Concluding a distance contract

8.1. Distance contracts are concluded in writing or orally between the provider and the buyer by issuing a contract confirmation using a means of distance communication, allowing the contract to be concluded without the contracting parties' simultaneous physical presence. A telephone conversation or e-mail conversation is also considered a means of distance communication. The purchase contract between the provider and the buyer is thus formed when the provider confirms the order in writing or orally. All prices and other terms are now fixed and apply to both the company Bevec d.o.o. and the buyer.
8.2. We consider accepted orders to be irrevocable. In the period between the order's issuance and the receipt of an electronic notification that the order is in progress, the buyer has the right to cancel the order without incurring any additional obligations. When placing orders for personal collection at the Bevec d.o.o. headquarters, the contract is deemed to be finally concluded upon receipt and payment of the ordered goods.
8.3. Along with the goods, the provider sends an invoice to the buyer.

9. Right of withdrawal, return of products

9.1 Because the products of the company Bevec d.o.o. are made to order and according to the buyer's specifications, it is not possible to return the goods or cancel the order after order confirmation or payment.

10. non-collection of products

10.1. The buyer is required to collect the ordered goods within a certain time period after receiving notification of the completed order. If the buyer does not collect the ordered goods sent by cash on delivery and the goods are returned to the company's address after the waiting period at the delivery service, this is NOT considered a withdrawal from the contract, as the latter is still validly concluded, and this also applies to the buyer's unilateral unannounced withdrawal from the contract. In the event of non-acceptance, the buyer is also liable for the additional shipping/return of goods to the company. In the event of non-acceptance, it will be handled by our legal department, which will further regulate the payment and possible recovery of incurred costs and damages.

11. Warranty for the quality of deliveries and delivered goods

11.1. We assume responsibility for the quality or integrity of the delivered goods in the sense and in accordance with the catalogue data and previous written agreements.
11.2. The buyer must report or claim any quantity or quality deviations in the delivered goods in writing within 8 days of receipt.
11.3. The buyer may report or claim hidden defects or hidden quality deviations in writing immediately after discovery, but no later than 6 months after receipt of the goods.
11.4. In the case of prior technical acceptance of the goods (item 5.5.), the buyer has no right to make a subsequent complaint about the goods, unless there is a hidden defect.
11.5. In the event that we make a request, the buyer must immediately return the complained goods or individual items so that we can determine the validity of the complaint. Otherwise, the buyer forfeits his right to appeal or file a complaint.
11.6. If the buyer's complaint is found to be valid, we will resolve it as soon as possible, i.e. within the shortest reasonable time.
11.7. We do not consider any complaints resulting from improper use and unauthorized or unprofessional installation, unauthorized and unprofessional interference with the product itself, unprofessional start-up, or unprofessional, deficient, or careless product handling.
