Consumers Rights / Claims
PowerEnglishByLana complies with the Code of EU Online Rights (“Code”) and all Rights and Principles of Consumers, that is, users and visitors to the Platform, according to the Code of EU Online Rights.
We kindly ask you to refer to the respective Code, particularly in regard to the following Chapter that states: “Consumers in the EU have at least seven days to change their mind about goods or services they have ordered online from a trader. For goods, the withdrawal period starts from the date of delivery, for services in general from the date the on-line order was placed. Consumers can then withdraw from the contract without penalty and without giving any reason. Reimbursement of sums paid must be carried out as soon as possible and in any case within 30 days. The only charge that can be made to the consumer in this case is the direct cost of returning the goods.
This right does not apply, however, if the provision of a service has begun, with the consumer’s agreement, before the end of the seven working day period for the exercise of the right of withdrawal; for accommodation, transport, catering or leisure services, unless the date or period of this service is open and not specified; or goods or services the price of which is dependent on fluctuations in the financial markets which cannot be controlled by the supplier; for personalised or ‘tailor-made’ goods; for the supply of goods which are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly; for the supply of audio or video recordings or computer software which were unsealed by the consumer; for the supply of newspapers, periodicals and magazines; for gaming and lottery services. In the case of buying financial services online consumers can withdraw from the contract within 14 days without any penalty and without giving any reason.This right does not apply, however, to financial services whose price depends on fluctuations in the financial market outside the supplier control; travel and baggage insurance policies or similar short-term insurance policies of less than one month’s duration; contracts whose performance has been fully completed by both parties at the consumer’s express request before the consumer exercises his right of withdrawal.”
Thus, the consumer / buyer cannot exercise their right to withdrawal /unilateral termination of the Agreement made remotely (article 79 of the Law on Consumer Protection), since the service / education is provided at specific date or within a specific period.
The exclusion of the right to unilateral termination of the contract (article 79 of the Law on Consumer Protection):
- the Seller has fully met the contract on service provision, and the fulfillment began with the explicit prior consent of the buyer / consumer, and with the confirmation that he/she is familiar with the fact that they will lose the right to unilateral termination from this section if the service is fully met;
- subject of the contract delivery of sealed audio recordings or video recordings or computer software which were unsealed after delivery;
- subject of the contract is a delivery of digital content which is not supplied on a physical medium, if the execution of the contract started with the explicit prior consent of the buyer / consumer, and with the confirmation that he/she is familiar with the fact that by this he/she will lose the right to unilateral termination of the contract.
PowerEnglishByLana shall not refund fully or partially any amount to any Registered User once the purchase is done. Claims based on a subjective complaints to a purchased lesson, or any claims on its shortcomings etc. shall not be considered as grounded for refund.
Furthermore, we do not guarantee for the performance of your Internet connection, as the speed and the quality of accessing the lessons depend on Your Internet setting. Once purchased, You will receive an e-mail with a link to access the selected lesson stored at our server.
If you want to complain about any aspect of the purchased lesson, in accordance with Ar. 10 of the Consumers’ protection Act of Croatia and the EU Directive on Consumer Rights, the Platform, i.e, this Webshop, enables you to send your written complaints or claims to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
