Limitation of Liability
Gaia Naturelle d.o.o. is doing its best to ensure that the information published on its website is up-to-date and accurate. However, the properties of the items, delivery time or price may change so quickly that Gaia Naturelle sometimes fails to update online information in real time. In this case, Gaia Naturelle will notify the customer of the changes and allow them to withdraw from the contract or replace the item ordered.
Exclusion of liability
We reserve the right to disable the website or disable access to the website due to technical or other problems and maintenance, which also means disabling or impeding the use of the Online Store.

Complaints and disputes
Gaia Naturelle d.o.o. respects current European consumer protection legislation. Gaia Naturelle is doing its best to fulfill its duty to establish an effective complaints system and to identify the person whom the customer can contact by telephone or email in the event of problems.
The complaint is submitted via email email@example.com. The procedure for handling a complaint is confidential. Gaia Naturelle will confirm that it has received the complaint within five business days and inform the customer of how long it will take to be processed, and keep them informed of the whole progress.
Gaia Naturelle is aware that an essential feature of a consumer dispute, at least as far as litigation is concerned, is its disproportion between the economic value of the claim and the costs involved in resolving the dispute itself. This is also the main obstacle to the consumer from bringing a dispute to court. That is why Gaia Naturelle is doing its best to resolve any disputes by mutual agreement.
In the case of court dispute resolution, the court having jurisdiction of the consumer's domicile shall have jurisdiction.
Out-of-court settlement of consumer disputes
In accordance with statutory norms, we do not recognize any out-of-court consumer dispute resolution provider as competent to resolve a consumer dispute that a consumer could initiate under the Out-of-Court Consumer Dispute Resolution Act.
