Returns & Complaints
INDEMNITIES FOR DAMAGE TO THE SHIPPED PRODUCTS
1. . Once the International shipping list is signed (with a legible signature, date, and time of the package's collection), the Buyer who is not a Consumer as per the Civil Code dated April 23rd 1964 (Dz. U. (Journal of Laws) number 16, position 93), is obliged to inspect the contents of the package in the presence of the courier. The courier is obliged to wait until the package is inspected. Should any damage or defect of the Product be detected, it shall be necessary to draw up a damage report, which shall then constitute a basis for filing a complaint.
2. If any damage to the package is detected, the courier is obliged to draw up a damage report in the place of unloading. Such a report should always be at a courier’s disposal. The courier is obliged to write down the damage report, in case of the courier's refusal, please contact to DPD Customer Service Office or DHL Customer Service Office.
3. Before the damage report is signed, it should be carefully read and examined in terms of whether its contents correspond to the actual state of the package (damaged packaging, warning signs). The Buyer may also take photographs of the damaged Product.
4. Should there arise any difficulties in examining the Product or if the courier refuses to draw up a damage report, the Vendor suggests collecting the personal data of the delivery company employee — name, surname, and employee ID of the courier — and immediately forwarding this information to the person handling the applicable Order or to the complaint department available at the following telephone number: +48 48 384 44 88 ext. 5.
5. The filled damage report (which must include the date of delivery) should be sent by the Buyer via e-mail to the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org or via fax to +48 48 384 44 88 ext. 106.
6. If the Buyer refuses to collect the package due to it being damaged, it should be noted in the shipping list.
7. Any complaints based on damage during transport are not reported by the DPD or DHL couriers, therefore the Buyer is requested to deliver the complete damage report to the Vendor.
8. The Product should be sent to the Vendor’s postal address Kratki.pl Marek Bal Wsola, ul. Gombrowicza 12 - Hala O, 26 – 660 Jedlińsk, Poland.
9. The provisions of the points 1 - 8 of these Terms and Conditions are not applicable to Buyers also being consumers, as per the Civil Code dated April 23rd 1964 (Dz. U. (Journal of Laws) 2017, item 459). In cases of consumers, the Vendor only suggests inspecting the package in the presence of the courier. Not inspecting the package and not drawing up a damage report will not have an effect on the final complaint due to damage, although going forward with the verification would make the entire process go significantly swifter and easier.
WARRANTY COMPLAINTS FOR PHYSICAL DEFECTS
1. If the Buyer determines that the delivered Product has a defect, they should inform the Vendor about it.
2. The complaint should contain a description of the Product’s defects, a date of its detection, and the Buyer’s requests relating thereto. In order to make the complaint processing simpler, the Vendor has made available a complaint form on the Online Shop's website, available at:http://reklamacje.kratki.com/ , as well as a complaint form as a text file available as Appendix no. 2. The Buyer is requested to send the filled form, available at http://reklamacje.kratki.com/ or as Appendix no. 2, to the Vendor via e-mail to the e-mail address email@example.com or via fax to +48 48 384 44 88 ext. 106.
3. The Product being the subject of the complaint should be accompanied by its Proof of Purchase or its copy.
4. The Buyer is obliged to send back the Product being the subject of the complaint.
5. The Product should be sent to the Vendor’s postal address: Kratki.pl Marek Bal Wsola, ul. Gombrowicza 12 - Hala O, 26 – 660 Jedlińsk, Poland.
6. If the complaint is found to not contain sufficient information, the Vendor shall revert to the Buyer and request additional data before responding to the complaint.
7. The Vendor is obliged to respond to a complaint within 14 calendar days. If no response is provided by the Vendor within the aforementioned time frame, the complaint shall be considered valid.
8. The Vendor is liable for warranty complaints if the defect is detected within 2 years of the Product being delivered to the Buyer.
9. Slight differences in the Product’s appearance resulting from individual settings of the Buyer’s computer — especially their monitor — shall not constitute sufficient basis for warranty claims.
10. The Vendor is not liable for warranty complaints against the Buyers also being entrepreneurs, as per art. 43 (1) of the Civil Code dated April 23rd 1964 (Dz. U. (Journal of Laws) 2017, item 459).
