Decrease in product value

In case of deterioration of the goods to be returned, the buyer is responsible for the decrease in value due to the use of the goods, if he has used the goods in a way other than what is necessary to make sure of its nature, properties and functioning. In order to make sure of the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods, the buyer can handle and use them only as he is normally allowed to do in the store. Among other things, the value of the goods is also considered to have decreased if the packaging of the product is damaged.

hotlips.ee is not responsible for product defects that have occurred:

  • due to use not in accordance with the instructions and/or recommendations
  • due to storage by the Buyer not in accordance with the instructions and/or recommendations
  • Due to damage caused intentionally or unintentionally by the customer

Refund

The money for the returned goods will be reimbursed to the Customer immediately, but no later than 14 days after receiving the withdrawal request.

The refund is made to the same current account from which the purchase was paid.

If the buyer has explicitly chosen a delivery method other than the cheapest usual delivery method offered by the Online Store, the Online Store does not have to refund the cost to the consumer that exceeds the cost associated with the usual delivery method.

Dispute and other terms

In the event that the Buyer does not agree with the decrease in value shown in the offsetting notice, the Buyer has the right to engage an independent expert to determine the decrease in value of the product. The costs related to the expertise are divided in half between the Buyer and HOTLIPS, except in case one party's position turns out to be unfounded. In such a case, the costs related to the expertise shall be borne by the party whose position was apparently unfounded.

The customer can turn to the Consumer Complaints Committee of the Consumer Protection Board, whose competence is to resolve disputes arising from the contract if the cost of the goods in dispute is over €20 (review of the complaint by the committee is free of charge).
