The consumer, as the customer, enters into a sales contract with NOELLE, a limited liability company for services and design (hereinafter: NOELLE d.o.o.), as the seller.
The Civil Obligations Act and the Electronic Commerce Act apply to legal persons in the capacity of a customer, while the Consumer Protection Act does not apply. These General Terms of Service shall apply to legal persons in respect to the price and payment method, general product features, contract conclusion procedure, description of delivery method and costs, general information, liability disclaimer, warranty and service conditions, loyalty programme and the contract conclusion date. The seller may, at its own discretion, in each specific case enable a legal person to exercise the same rights as the customer in the capacity of a consumer.
Entry into a sales contract via the www.noellebrush.com website is governed by relevant regulatory provisions, with special regard to the principles and provisions of the EU directives. Entry into a contract via the www.noellebrush.com website is considered the conclusion of a distance contract.
These General Terms of Service represent also a pre-contractual notice and refer to the conclusion of a sales contract if the customer is a consumer, i.e. any natural person entering into a legal transaction or operating in a market outside their trade, business, craft or professional activity, and if the contract is concluded between a trader and a consumer within the framework of an organised sales or service rendering system without the simultaneous physical presence of the trader and the consumer in a single place, with the exclusive use of one or more means of distance communication up to and including the time at which the contract is concluded.
Means of distance communication are any means which, without the simultaneous physical presence of the trader and the consumer, may be used for the conclusion of a distance contract, such as the Internet and email.
The contract is deemed to have been concluded when the seller accepts the customer’s offer, pursuant to which all of the terms listed on www.noellebrush.com represent an invitation to purchase. The seller may terminate the sales contract if the customer fails to pay the purchase price, and is not obliged to deliver the products until the purchase price has been paid, except in cases where the customer has chosen the cash on delivery payment option.
The General Terms and Conditions of Personal Data Protection form an integral part of these General Terms of Service.
English is the official language of the sales contract conclusion.

NOELLE d.o.o. (hereinafter: the seller) is responsible for any and all material defects of a product until the risk is transferred to the customer (the moment of its delivery to the customer or a third party designated by the customer (other than the carrier) regardless of whether it was aware of them. Furthermore, it will be held responsible also for the material defects detected after the transfer of risk to the customer if they are the result of a pre-existing cause. It will be deemed that a defect arising within six months from the transfer of risk to the customer existed at the time of the risk transfer, unless the seller proves otherwise or unless the nature of the item/defect shows otherwise. The defect exists:
- If the item lacks the features necessary for its regular use or operation;
- If the item lacks the features necessary for the use intended by the customer, which was known or had to be known to the seller;
- If the item lacks the features and characteristics that were expressly agreed or implied, i.e. prescribed;
- If the seller delivered an item that differs from the sample or model, except if the sample or model was displayed for informative purposes only;
- If the item lacks the features that otherwise exist in other items of the same kind, and which the customer could have reasonably expected due to the nature of the item, especially taking into account public statements of the seller, the manufacturer, and their representatives about its features (advertisements, labels, etc.).
The consumer undertakes to inform the seller of the existence of any visible defects within two months from their discovery, and no later than two years from the date of risk transfer to the consumer.
When the customer, after receiving an item, discovers a defect that could not have been detected through a regular check when collecting it, the customer undertakes, under threat of losing the right, to notify the seller thereof within two months from the date of its discovery.
The seller will not be liable for any defects arising after the expiry of two years since the item was delivered. The rights of the customer who has notified the seller of the existence of a defect in due time shall extinguish after two years, counting from the day the notice was sent to the seller, unless the seller deceived the buyer into failing to exercise their rights.
In the case of existence of a material defect, according to the Civil Obligations Act the seller may be obliged to perform one of the following activities:
- Remove the defect;
- Deliver another product free of defects;
- Reduce the price;
- Terminate the contract.
The Civil Obligations Act governs the rights based on material defects of an item.
If the customer is a legal person, the rules about material defects set out by the Civil Obligations Act will apply, especially with regard to the part where this is regulated differently from these General Terms of Service.
RIGHT TO UNILATERAL CONTRACT TERMINATION
The consumer is entitled to terminate the contract unilaterally within 14 days without stating the reason.
The 14-day notice period begins on the date when the consumer or a third person designated by the consumer (other than the carrier) took possession of the product.
If the consumer orders one or more product items to be delivered separately, i.e. if the goods are delivered in more than one item or package, the 14-day period commences from the date when the consumer or a third party designated by the consumer (other than the carrier) took into possession the last product item or package.
If regular delivery of goods is agreed upon over a certain period, the 14-day period commences from the date when the consumer or a third party designated by the consumer (other than the carrier) took into possession the first product item or package.
If the consumer is not notified of their right to unilateral contract termination, the said right will cease to exist 12 months after the expiry of the 14-day period.
If the seller notified the consumer of their right to terminate the contract within 12 months, the right to unilateral contract termination will cease to exist upon expiry of 14 days from the date of receipt of the relevant notification.
In order for the consumer to exercise their right to unilaterally terminate the contract, they are obliged to inform the seller about such a decision prior to the expiry of the 14-day period by sending an unambiguous notice to the seller’s address at Nova Ves 45/1, Zagreb or by emailing it to email@example.com, together with their name and surname, address, telephone or telefax number and/or their email. The seller will promptly deliver to the consumer a confirmation of receipt of the unilateral contract termination notice. In the case of contract termination, each of the contracting parties undertakes to return to the other party the items received on the basis of the contract. Unless the seller has offered to take back the goods returned by the consumer, the seller will refund the amount paid only after receiving the goods, i.e. after receiving evidence of shipment from the consumer, should the seller be notified thereof before actually receiving the goods. The seller is not obliged to refund any additional expenses resulting from the customer’s express choice of transportation that differs from the cheapest standard transportation offered by the seller. The seller undertakes to refund the amount paid via the same payment method used for the original order payment, unless the consumer expressly agrees to another payment method, assuming that the consumer is not required to pay any additional costs for such refund.
Unless the seller offered to take back the goods returned by the consumer, the consumer will return them without delay and no later than 14 days from the date of notifying the seller about their decision to terminate the contract.
It will be deemed that the consumer has fulfilled their obligation to timely return the goods if they send or deliver them to the seller or their authorised person prior to the expiry date.
The consumer will bear all direct costs related to the product return. The consumer will be held liable for any reduction of the value of goods resulting from handling the products, except for that required for determining their nature, features and functionality.
In order for the consumer to determine the nature, features and functionality of goods, they can handle and inspect them solely in the manner that is customary when purchasing goods at the seller’s premises. The customer is not allowed to wear, use or take any other actions that might reduce the value of the goods they intend to return within the 14-day period.
During the period when the consumer is entitled to return the goods, they must handle them with due care and attention, i.e. be particularly careful and diligent. In the case of a reduction of value resulting from the product handling, the seller will compensate it at its own discretion out of the paid purchase price, taking into account the objective criteria of each individual case.
A sales contract may not be terminated in the following cases:
- If the subject-matter of the contract are goods made according to the consumer’s specifications or clearly tailor-made;
- If the subject-matter of the contract are sealed goods that, for health or sanitary reasons, cannot be returned as they were unsealed on delivery;
- If the subject-matter of the contract are goods which are, due to their nature, inseparably mixed with other items after delivery;
- If the consumer specifically requests from the trader to perform urgent repairs or maintenance, and the seller during such a visit also renders additional services, i.e. delivers goods other than those necessary for performing urgent repairs or maintenance, the consumer is entitled to unilateral contract termination with respect to the said additional services or goods.
When the customer is a legal person, the section of these General Terms of Services “Right to unilateral contract termination” does not apply. In this case, the Civil Obligations Act and the Electronic Commerce Act apply.
