Please be informed that according to the Law on Consumer Protection (Official Gazette of the Republic of Serbia No. 62/2014), online shopping through our website www.aura.co.rs is considered distance selling.
In the case of distance selling, the Law provides for the right of the Buyer, who is considered the Consumer (i.e. a natural person who purchases a product for his/her individual needs, rather than for conducting a professional activity), to cancel the purchase contract within 14 days of delivery of the product. When cancelling the order, the Buyer may, but is not obliged to, state the reason for cancellation.
The Contract Cancellation Form/Statement produces legal effects as of the day it was sent to the Trader.
