The High Life will acknowledge receipt of the complaint within five working days, notify the customer of the period of processing, and keep him or she informed of the progress of the procedure.
The High Life is aware that an essential feature of a consumer dispute, at least as far as judicial resolution is concerned, is its disproportion between the economic value of the claim and the costs incurred in resolving the dispute itself. This is also the main obstacle to the consumer not initiating a dispute in court. Therefore, The High Life strives to the best of its ability to resolve any disputes amicably.
In the case of judicial settlement of disputes, the court having jurisdiction over the consumer’s domicile has jurisdiction.
Out-of-court settlement of consumer disputes (under Article 32 of the ZlsRPS)
Under legal norms, we do not recognize any provider of out-of-court settlement of consumer disputes as competent for resolving consumer disputes that could be initiated by the consumer under the Out-of-Court Settlement of Consumer Disputes Act. The High Life, which as a provider of goods and services enables online trade in Slovenia, publishes an electronic link to the online consumer dispute resolution platform (SRPS) on its website. The platform is available to consumers at https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home2.show&lng=en.
That regulation derives from the Out-of-Court Settlement of Consumer Disputes Act, Regulation (EU) no. Regulation (EC) No 524/2013 of the European Parliament and the Council on the online settlement of consumer disputes and amending Regulation (EC) No 2016/2004 and Directive 2009/22 / EC.
