The equivalent in euros (EUR) is calculated according to the valid mid exchange rate of the CROATIAN NATIONAL BANK and is for information purposes only. The exact amount of the price in euros (EUR) depends on the current exchange rate of the end user’s bank at the time of payment. Product prices are the same for all methods of payments and are visible on the product page and in the cart when concluding an order. The product price does not include the cost of delivery, which is calculated separately during the last step of the order after the user enters the desired delivery address, unless the conditions for free delivery are met (order of items over HRK 300). The seller reserves the right to change the price without prior notice.
4.2. In extraordinary cases of an administrative error in stating the price of the product on the webshop page, we are not obliged to enter into a sales contract on unfavourable terms. If such a case occurs, we will offer you to purchase the product at the correct price, without the obligation to accept such an offer. In case you do not accept the offer, the amount paid will be refunded if the payment has already been made.
4.3. The products remain the property of the seller until the receipt of full payment according to the concluded sales contract, regardless of whether the goods are delivered.
4.4. You can make payment by credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, American Express, Diners) at the time of concluding the order in the webshop, by payment to our transaction account using internet banking or general payment slip and in cash on delivery.

You can find out more about the instalment payment options for each card on the ‘Payment methods’ page. (LINK))

HT Pay Way applies the most modern standards in data protection – Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol with 128-bit data encryption and MD5 algorithm. The ISO 8583 protocol ensures that the exchange of data between the T-Com system and the authorization centres of card companies takes place in a private network, which is protected from unauthorized access by a double layer of firewall.
4.6. You will receive the invoice in a package together with the goods or as a separate shipment, depending on the place of dispatch of the goods.

5.3. Varteks will not change the terms of sale after the conclusion of the contract or cancel the delivery of goods unless, due to a technical error of the inventory tracking system, a certain product that was presented as available is not actually available. In this extraordinary case, we will notify you in a timely manner via the contact information you provided when placing your order. We will allow you to choose another product instead of the unavailable product from the originally concluded contract, without the obligation to accept such an offer. In case you do not accept the offer, the amount paid will be refunded if the payment has already been made.
5.4. If the order includes several products, one of which is unavailable, we will notify you in a timely manner, and the other ordered products will be delivered in accordance with the contract.
5.5. All products will be packed in transport packaging in such a way that they cannot be damaged by normal transport handling. When receiving the product, the buyer is obliged to check for any damage and immediately report it to the courier who delivered the goods, i.e. to refuse to receive the package with visible external damage. The buyer has to sign the delivery note when taking over the goods, and the courier takes it as a confirmation of delivery. Upon the Buyer’s signature on the delivery note, it is considered that the product has been received without visible external damage.
