MATERIAL DEFICIENCIES

Dominović is responsible for material deficiencies of a product.

Deficiencies include:

if an item does not have the necessary properties for its normal use or for sale,

if an item does not have the necessary properties for the specific use for which the buyer purchases it, which was known to the seller or should have been known to him,

if an item does not have the properties and characteristics that are explicitly or tacitly understood, i.e. described, 

when the seller has sent an item which is not the same as the sample or model, unless the sample or model is shown for information only,

if an item does not have properties that otherwise exist in other items of the same type and which the buyer could reasonably have expected according to the nature of the item, particularly taking into account the public statements of the seller, the manufacturer and their representatives about the properties of the item (advertisements, labelling, etc.),

if an item is incorrectly installed, provided that the installation service is included as part of fulfilment of the sales contract,

if the incorrect installation is a consequence of deficiencies in the installation instructions.

The buyer is obliged to notify the seller of the existence of visible defects within two months of the date of discovery of the defect, and no later than two years from the transfer of risk to the buyer. When, after receiving the goods from the buyer, it turns out that the item has a defect that could not be detected by normal inspection at the time of receiving the item, the buyer is obliged, if he does not want to lose his rights, to notify the seller within two months of the discovery of the defect. 

The seller is not responsible for any defects that appear after the expiry of two years from handing over the item. The rights of the buyer that notified the seller about the existence of a deficiency in a timely manner, expire after two years, reckoning from the day of notifying the seller, unless the buyer was prevented from exercising them by the seller's fraud.

If the existence of a material deficiency is determined, the seller has one of the following obligations, in accordance with the provisions of the Civil Obligations Act, and in accordance with the buyer's choice:

defect elimination,

delivery of another product without defect,

price reduction.

The buyer may terminate the contract only if he has previously given the seller adequate time to fulfil the contract.

The buyer may terminate the contract without giving adequate time in the case that the seller, after the buyer notifies him of the defects, informs the buyer that he will not fulfil the contract, or if the circumstances of a specific case clearly show that the seller will not be able to fulfil the contract even at a later date, and also in the case of the buyer not being able to achieve the purpose for which he entered into the contract, because of the delay of the seller. 

If the seller does not fulfil the contract within the given deadline, the contract is terminated by law, but the buyer can keep it in force if he notifies the seller without delay that the contract remains in force.

If the buyer is a legal entity, the rules on material deficiency prescribed by the Civil Obligations Act apply.

RIGHT TO UNILATERAL TERMINATION OF THE CONTRACT

The consumer may unilaterally terminate the contract within 14 days without giving a reason.

The period of 14 days is reckoned from the day when the product is handed over to the consumer or a third party designated by the consumer, which is not the courier.

If the consumer orders in one order several parts to be delivered separately, or if the goods are delivered in several parts or several shipments, the period of 14 days begins to run from the day when the consumer or the third party designated by the consumer, who is not the courier, received the last part or last consignment of the product.

If regular delivery of goods is agreed for a certain period, the period of 14 days begins to run from the day when the first piece or the first consignment of the product is handed over to the consumer or a third party designated by the consumer, which is not the courier.

If the consumer is not notified of the right to terminate the contract, the consumer's right to unilateral termination of the contract expires after 12 months from the expiration of the period of 14 days.

If the seller has notified the consumer of the right to terminate the contract within 12 months, the right to unilateral termination of the contract expires after the expiration of 14 days from the time the consumer received the notification.

In order for the consumer to exercise his right to unilateral termination of the contract, he must notify the seller in writing of his decision to unilaterally terminate the contract before the expiration of 14 days, by an unequivocal statement sent by mail to Dominović University Bookstore and Antiquarian, Hrvatske bratske zajednice 4, 10000 Zagreb or by e-mail to the address: [email protected], in which he must state his name, address, telephone number or e-mail address. The consumer may, if he chooses, use the form for unilateral termination of the contract which can be found in Annex I to these Terms of Use.

The consumer may also fill in the form for the unilateral termination of the contract online, by clicking here.

Acknowledgment of receipt of the statement of unilateral termination of the contract shall be delivered by the seller to the consumer without delay, to the physical address or e-mail address. In the event of termination of the contract, each party is obliged to return to the other party what it received under the contract.

Except when the seller has offered to pick up the goods returned by the consumer, the seller must refund the payment only after the goods are returned to him, i.e. after the consumer provides proof that he sent the goods back to the seller, if the seller is notified before actual receipt of the goods.

The consumer is obliged to return the goods to the address: Sveučilišna knjižara i antikvarijat Dominović, Hrvatske bratske zajednice 4, 10000 Zagreb.

The seller is not obliged to reimburse the additional costs resulting from the consumer's explicit choice of mode of transport which is different from the cheapest type of standard transport offered by the seller.

The seller must reimburse the payment using the same means of payment used by the consumer during payment, unless the consumer explicitly agrees to a different means of payment, and on the assumption that the consumer is not obliged to pay for any additional expenses for such a return.

Unless the seller has offered to collect the goods being returned by the consumer himself, the consumer must return the goods without delay, and no later than 14 days after notifying the seller of his decision to terminate the contract.

It is considered that the consumer has fulfilled his obligation to return the goods on time if before the deadline he sends the goods or hands them over to the seller, i.e. to the person authorized by the seller to receive the goods.

All costs of product return are borne by the consumer.

The consumer is responsible for any impairment of the goods resulting from the handling of the goods other than that which was necessary to determine the nature, characteristics and functionality of the product.

In order for the consumer to determine the nature, characteristics and functionality of the goods, he can handle the goods and inspect the goods only in the way that is usual when buying goods at the seller's premises. The goods that the buyer intends to return within 14 days must not be modified or used, nor can any actions be undertaken that may not be taken in the physical branch of the seller, including those that would reduce the value of the goods.

In the event of impairment of the product resulting from the handling of the product, the seller will deduct an amount from the purchase price to be returned, in proportion to the impairment of the product, at his own discretion, taking into account the objective criteria of each particular case.

The right to terminate the sales contract is not allowed in the following cases when:

The buyer is obliged to return the products to the company Dominović at his own expense, to the address: Sveučilišna knjižara i antikvarijat Dominović, Hrvatske bratske zajednice 4, 10000 Zagreb.

LOYALTY PROGRAM 

By purchasing on the website www.knjizara-dominovic.hr, customers can collect points throughout the calendar year, according to which they are then classified into point classes. Depending on which point class they are in, customers receive a certain discount throughout the following calendar year.

301 – 500 points = 5% additional discount on the purchase throughout the following year

501 – 1000 points = 8% additional discount on the purchase throughout the following year

≥ 1001 points = 10% additional discount on the purchase throughout the following year

For a registered member the discount earned is added automatically from 1st January, and he will be informed of his point class by 15th January at the latest.
