Prior to completing an order as a registered user, the User should additionally provide a telephone number and delivery address in the event that they wish the ordered goods to be delivered to an address specified by the User.
In providing registration and order details, the User agrees:
To provide true, accurate, current and complete information about himself when completing the registration form;
to make changes to such personal data as necessary to ensure that it is true, accurate, current and complete.
In the event that the User provides false, inaccurate, outdated or incomplete information, the Provider shall have the right to block and/or delete the User's account and deny the User further access to some or all of its services.
The User is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of his account. User shall immediately notify Provider of any unauthorized use of its account or any other breach of security.

4. Ordering goods
Placing an order (concluding a purchase contract) is carried out by the following steps:
The user fills his basket with the goods of his choice;
The user enters delivery details;
The user selects the delivery method;
The user selects the payment method;
User enters invoice details (optional);
The user submits their order by clicking the "Complete Order" button;
Upon completion of the order, the User will receive an email from the Supplier confirming the order and containing the order details.
The order confirmation email has the meaning of acceptance by the Supplier of the submitted order and thus forms a contract of sale between the Parties.
As soon as the order is ready for dispatch, the Supplier will send an email confirming the dispatch of the order to the User.
5. Prices and method of payment
The prices displayed on the Website are quoted in Bulgarian Leva and include VAT and are applicable for delivery within Bulgaria. The Supplier reserves the right, without notice, to change the prices of goods at any time, except for goods already ordered by the User. VAT shall be applied at the statutory rate in force at the time of placing the order. The prices of goods displayed on the Website do not include courier costs.
The User may pay the price for the individual goods at once when ordering the goods in one of the following ways:
By bank transfer;
By debit/credit card
By accepting these Terms, the User undertakes to pay the Supplier in advance, in full, the sale price of any goods ordered from the Website.
In the case of payment by "cash on delivery", the User shall receive from the courier an invoice/fiscal receipt stating the price payable for the goods and the cost of processing and delivery of the order. The User shall hand over to the courier the total amount due, including the price of the goods and the handling and delivery charge stated on the invoice/receipt. The payment shall be noted in the acceptance document, which serves as a receipt and certifies the delivery of the goods by the courier to the User. By signing the acceptance document, the User authorises the courier to transfer on his behalf and for his account to the Supplier the amount stated in the invoice/receipt.
The User may choose whether the goods are delivered to an address specified by the User, to a courier's office, or to our shop. The products are delivered only to regular postal addresses in Bulgaria. In the event that delivery is made to a country outside the EU and EEA all customs fees and taxes (including customs duties) are the responsibility of the User, and the delivery time depends on the final destination and the freight forwarding company making the delivery. Goods may also be delivered to a so-called "collective" address (an address that is, for example, in a business building, school, kindergarten, etc.). In this case, the User confirms that the delivery of the order has taken place upon actual delivery to the collective address indicated in his order, although the goods may be received by a third party. The transfer of risks to the User takes place upon transmission, so it is important that the User takes all measures to ensure that his order is received at such address.
The delivery time is 30 days from the conclusion of the contract, unless otherwise agreed by the parties. The User will be informed of the dispatch of his order automatically by e-mail or telephone.
If the Supplier is unable to fulfil the contract due to not having the goods ordered, he is obliged to notify the User and refund the amounts paid by him.
Delivery shall be made by courier company and the cost thereof shall be borne by the User, unless otherwise provided for in these Conditions.
A User who is absent at the time of delivery will be contacted again in accordance with the rules of the relevant courier and, if delivery is not made within 10 working days, the product will be returned to the Supplier. The Supplier will then attempt to contact the User and in the absence of a response from the User within 7 working days, the User will be deemed to have exercised their right of withdrawal.
The User must inspect the goods at the time of delivery and handover and if they do not meet the requirements notify the Supplier immediately. If the User does not notify the Supplier the goods shall be deemed to have been approved as conforming.
In the event of an error, regardless of whose fault, which results in the User receiving goods other than those ordered by the User or at a different price from that stated at the completion of the order, the User shall immediately return the goods at the Supplier's expense.
7. Right of return
The consumer has the right to withdraw from the concluded contract within 14 days from the date of acceptance of the goods by the Supplier, without compensation or penalty and without giving a reason. The User shall notify the Supplier of his wish to withdraw from the contract or to replace a good clearly and unambiguously by completing the standard form for exercising the right of withdrawal in one of the following ways:
- by post to Bulgaria, Sofia, Lozenets district
- by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Supplier shall refund all amounts received from the User without undue delay and no later than 14 days from the date on which the goods are accepted by the Supplier. The Supplier shall refund the amounts received using the same means of payment used by the User in the original transaction, unless the User has expressly wished to use another means of payment and provided that this does not involve any cost to the User.
In lieu of a refund, the User shall have the right to request a replacement of the size or item appearing on his original order.
The cost of returning the goods shall be borne by the User.
The right of withdrawal does not apply to the following contracts:
for the provision of services, where the service has been provided in full, where the contract provides for an obligation for the consumer to pay, and performance has begun with the consumer's express prior agreement and acknowledgement that he knows he will lose his right of withdrawal once the contract has been fully performed by the trader;
for the supply of goods or services the price of which depends on fluctuations in the financial market which cannot be controlled by the Supplier and which may occur during the period for exercising the right of withdrawal;
for the delivery of goods made to the User's order or in accordance with the User's individual requirements;
for the delivery of goods which, by their nature, may deteriorate in quality or have a short shelf life;
for the delivery of sealed goods which have been unsealed after delivery and cannot be returned for reasons of hygiene or health protection;
for the delivery of goods which, having been delivered, have by their nature become mixed with other goods from which they cannot be separated;
for the delivery of alcoholic beverages, the price of which is agreed at the time of conclusion of the contract of sale, where delivery can be made no earlier than 30 days from the conclusion of the contract and whose actual value depends on market fluctuations which cannot be controlled by the Supplier;
where the Consumer has expressly requested the Supplier to visit him at his home in order to carry out urgent repair or maintenance work; where, during such a visit, the Supplier provides other services in addition to those requested by the Consumer, or delivers goods other than spare parts necessary to carry out the repair or maintenance, the right of withdrawal shall apply to those additional services or goods;
for the supply of sealed sound or video recordings or sealed computer software which are unsealed after delivery;
for the supply of newspapers, periodicals or magazines, excluding subscription contracts for the supply of such publications;
concluded during a public tender;
for the provision of accommodation services not intended for living purposes, the transport of goods, the hire of cars, catering services or the provision of services relating to leisure activities, if the contract provides for a specific date or period of performance;
for the provision of digital content which is not provided in a tangible medium, where performance has begun and the contract obliges the consumer to pay, where:
the consumer has given his express prior consent to the commencement of performance during the cancellation period;
the consumer has acknowledged that he knows that he will thereby lose his right of withdrawal;
the trader has provided a confirmation pursuant to Article 48(2) or 49(8) of the CPA;
for the provision of services which oblige the consumer to pay, where the consumer has expressly requested the trader to visit him at his home to carry out repair work after the service has been fully provided and performance has begun with the consumer's express prior consent.
The Supplier and the Consumer shall enter into separate purchase contracts for the goods requested by the Consumer, notwithstanding that they are selected by a single electronic order, and the Supplier shall jointly arrange for the delivery of the goods ordered by the separate purchase contracts. The User's rights in relation to the delivered goods shall be exercised separately for each purchase contract. The exercise of rights in relation to delivered goods shall not affect or have effect in relation to the purchase contracts for the other goods. In the event that the User has the status of a consumer within the meaning of the Consumer Protection Act, the exercise of the right of withdrawal from the purchase contract for a particular good shall not affect the purchase contracts for the other goods delivered to the User. When exercising the rights under the purchase contract, the Consumer shall be obliged to indicate precisely and unambiguously the contract and the goods in respect of which he exercises the rights.
8. Legal and commercial warranty
The Supplier reminds the User of the existence of a statutory warranty governed by the Digital Content and Services and Sale of Goods Act (DCTSA). The statutory guarantee is the Supplier's obligation to warrant, within two years of delivery of the goods, that it has sold an item that is as described in the contract of sale. The two year period starts from the day the Consumer receives delivery.
In the context of the statutory warranty, where the goods do not comply with the individual conformity requirements of the contract, the objective conformity requirements and the fitting or installation requirements of the goods, the Consumer is entitled to:
make a claim by asking the seller to bring the goods into conformity;
receive a proportionate reduction in the price;
cancel the contract.
When making a claim, the consumer has the right to claim that the goods be brought into conformity with the contract and may choose to do so by repairing or replacing the goods. The Supplier may refuse to bring the goods into conformity if repair and replacement are impossible for the Supplier, or if they would entail disproportionate costs for the Supplier, taking into account all the circumstances of the case, including:
the value that the goods would have if there were no lack of conformity;
the significance of the non-conformity, and
the possibility of providing the consumer with another remedy without significant inconvenience to the consumer.
The consumer has the right to request a proportionate reduction in price or to cancel the contract of sale where:
The supplier has failed to repair or replace the goods or has refused to bring the goods into conformity with the contract.
non-conformity has occurred despite the Supplier having taken action to bring the goods into conformity;
the non-conformity is so serious as to justify an immediate price reduction or cancellation of the contract of sale; or
the Supplier has stated or it is clear from the circumstances that it will not bring the goods into conformity within a reasonable time or without significant inconvenience to the consumer.
The consumer is not entitled to cancel the contract if the non-conformity is minor. The burden of proof as to whether the non-conformity is minor shall be on the Supplier.
The consumer is entitled to refuse payment of the remaining part of the price or part of the price until the Supplier has fulfilled its obligations to bring the goods into conformity.
Where the consumer has opted for a price reduction, the price shall be reduced in proportion to the difference between the value of the goods received by the consumer and the value the goods would have had if there had been no lack of conformity.
The consumer shall exercise his right to cancel the contract by making an application to the Supplier notifying him of his decision to cancel the contract of sale. Where the non-conformity relates only to some of the goods supplied pursuant to the contract of sale and there is a ground for rescission, the consumer is entitled to rescind the contract of sale only in respect of those goods which do not conform and in respect of any other goods which he has acquired together with the goods which do not conform if it cannot reasonably be expected that the consumer will agree to retain only the goods which conform. Where the consumer cancels the contract of sale in whole or in part only in respect of some of the goods supplied pursuant to the contract of sale, the consumer shall return those goods to the Supplier without undue delay and not later than 14 days from the date on which the consumer has notified the Supplier of his decision to cancel the contract of sale. The deadline shall be deemed to have been met if the consumer has returned or sent the goods back to the Supplier before the expiry of the 14-day period. The Supplier shall reimburse the consumer the price paid for the goods upon receipt of the goods or upon presentation of proof by the consumer of their shipment to the Supplier. The Supplier is obliged to reimburse the amounts received using the same means of payment used by the consumer in the original transaction, unless the consumer has expressly agreed to the use of another means of payment and provided that this does not entail a cost for the consumer.
The statutory guarantee of conformity shall apply independently of any commercial guarantee that may be provided.
Certain goods sold through the Website may also benefit from a commercial guarantee, the duration of which is stated on the product page of the relevant product. If the goods benefit from a commercial guarantee, the User will receive a guarantee card at the latest at the time of receipt of his order, which will indicate the content of the commercial guarantee, its performance, duration and territorial scope, as well as the name and address of the guarantor. All goods are subject to the warranty conditions of the respective manufacturer or authorised service centres. Only the original warranty cards with which the goods were received are valid in the service centres.
The warranty is void in the event of:
- damage caused by improper storage or operation.
- attempted repair by the User and/or another person.
- the use of poor quality and non-original consumables.
- as a result of force majeure.
