The Customer is responsible for all the actions of a third party resulting from the publication or disclosure of the username and password to a third party. After logging in the Customer can use all the available functions of the Services, in particular the creation of a Shopping List and the delivery order of Goods specified in the relevant Shopping List. Tesco sends to the Customer a confirmation of the Shopping List to the e-mail address the Customer provided during Registration.

    Customers can create a Shopping List at any time 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Tesco does not supply orders on 1 January, Easter Sunday, 24 December, 25 December, 26 December. After previous notice published on the Website, Tesco reserves the right to determine the following days when the supply of Goods will not be carried out, except the days referred to in the previous sentence.

    If the Customer wants the Goods delivered the next day, the confirmation of the Shopping List must be no later than 23:00 (11 pm) of the preceding day. The same applies in the case of a change or cancellation of delivery of Goods or packaging option according to below section.

    Tesco, by performing its business, tries to enhance the protection of the environment and offers this possibility to its Customers. Therefore, the Customer can choose from the following options of packaging and handover of the Goods:


    • (A) the Goods will be delivered in shopping bags; in such case the Customer will be charged a single flat fee for use of bags in the amount of 0,40 EUR per one purchase of the Goods regardless of the number of bags used;
    • (B) the Goods will be delivered not packed in shopping bags and the Customer will take over the Goods using his/her own shopping bag or by other means; counter meat and meat products, fresh fishes, detergents and other types of Goods that shall be packed because of hygienic reasons will be packed according to relevant applicable laws and such packaging will not be charged; Customer will have enough time to take over all the Goods delivered in this way.

    The Customer is entitled to cancel the Shopping List after logging in to their account on the Website or through the Customer Helpline. If the Customer cancels the Shopping List after 23:00 (11 pm), they can only do so through the Customer Helpline.

    The Customer is entitled to order the delivery of Goods up to a maximum amount of 24 pieces of each item (if sold in pieces). In case the total amount of Order exceeds 260 kg, Tesco is entitled to cancel such Order and is not obliged to deliver it. The Customer may contact the Customer Helpline with further possibilities regarding ordering and delivery of requested Goods.

    When ordering delivery of weighted Goods, Tesco reserves the right to deliver the goods whose the weight is different from the weights specified in the Shopping List, while the difference shall not be greater than +/- 10% depending on the type of goods. If the weight difference in the supply of Goods exceeds 10%, the Customer has the right to refuse accepting such Goods.

    In the case of Goods whose Price is determined in accordance with a unit weight and if its nature allows so and the Customer orders a number of items instead of the weight of Goods, Tesco will deliver the ordered number of items to the Customer. The price will then be determined by the weight of the ordered quantity of such Goods.

    2. Terms of Delivery

    Delivery of goods within the service is carried out on the days and at the time shown in the “Book time” section, except where provided otherwise in these GTC. Tesco delivers the goods at the earliest on the next day following the confirmation of the customer’s shopping list, if this day was shown as the earliest possible date of delivery. Tesco is committed to making every effort that may be justly required from it to perform the delivery of Goods on the agreed date and agreed time. Tesco is not responsible for late delivery due to force majeure or other unpredictable events (i.e. accidents and congestion on the roads).

    3. Delivery of Replacement Items

    Tesco does not guarantee the availability of the Goods presented on the website. If the Goods ordered by the Customer are not available, Tesco is entitled to offer replacement goods to the Customer, whose features and price are similar or the same as the price of the ordered unavailable Goods (hereinafter referred to as "Replacement Goods"). Upon delivery of the Goods, the Replacement Goods will be separated from those ordered by the Customer. The Customer has the right to refuse to accept the entire Replacement Goods, as well as its parts. Price of the Goods not accepted by the Customer will not be included in the total payment for Goods, even if the Customer has previously entered data on the payment card to make the payment online. 

    In case of sale of Goods within the promotion of the Goods or their discounted sale whose amount is limited. The supply of such Goods depends on the order in which individual Customer Shopping Lists were delivered to Tesco. Tesco reserves the right not to supply the Goods if the goods from the promotional event are sold out. 

    Tesco delivers Goods exclusively in areas that can be discovered by clicking on the link in "Where We Deliver" http://www2.itesco.sk/potravinydomov/on-line-overenie-psc.html and enter the postcode. Delivery is possible only to those Customers whose shipping address is located in the area covered by the use of Tesco within the Service. The Goods will be delivered to the door of the apartment or the house of the Customer, whose address was listed as the place of delivery. Within the Service, the Customer may request the delivery of Goods to a certain floor, while Tesco or the Worker of distribution to customers (hereinafter "the Deliverer") will make reasonable efforts to deliver them to the place designated by the Customer and must simultaneously satisfy all of the following conditions:

    • (A) the Deliverer is authorized to enter the building;
    • (B) entrance to the building shall not be obstructed by any obstacle;
    • (C) the Deliverer does not evaluate the Customer requirement as unreasonable or as one that could threaten or endanger the health, life, the Goods or other property.

    If on the agreed time of delivery the Customer is not available at the stated delivery address, the Deliverer shall leave them a note at the place designated for delivery of mail (Customer’s mail box).

    If the absence of the Customer is just temporary and the Deliverer is still located near the site of delivery, the Customer may contact the Customer Helpline and request that the Deliverer deliver the Goods to the Customer at an agreed alternative time. If the repeated delivery is possible on the same day, after agreement it will made at a new time of delivery. If the Deliverer is not close to the place of delivery and delivery on the same day is not possible, the Shopping List will be cancelled. The unsuccessful delivery of Goods for reasons based on the Customer's side establishes the right of Tesco for payment of the Delivery Price.

    Tesco reserves the right to refuse performing further deliveries to the Customer who has ordered the delivery of Goods and never once was located at the specified (agreed) place and time of delivery three times or more within one calendar month. Or if the Customer did not select any Goods from the delivered Goods and therefore the purchase agreement could not be concluded three times or more within one calendar month.

    Tesco reserves the right to additionally inspect the data of the Customer, the Customer Shopping Lists and the delivery order of Goods, i.e. phone. Tesco reserves the right to refuse delivery of the Goods referred to in the Shopping List if it has reasonable grounds for suspecting that the Goods were ordered in violation of these GTC.

    The Service Price stated on several Shopping Lists with the same time, date and address of delivery will be charged for each Shopping List.

    Tesco reserves the right to check the age of the person acquiring Goods at the point of delivery. If a person below the age of 18 years and the Goods can not be taken by another person Tesco shall refuse the delivery of Goods to such a person, especially if the Goods are, for example, alcoholic beverages, cigarettes and the like.

    The Customer may authorize the receipt of the Goods at the place of delivery only for a person older than 18 years of age. Tesco may not pass on alcoholic beverages to persons under 18 years of age, or persons under the influence of alcohol.

    VII. Withdrawal from the Agreement

    1. Conditions and Consequences of Withdrawal

    The Customer may withdraw from the agreement without giving any reason within 14 days from the date of delivery. To exercise the right of withdrawal, the Customer is obliged to inform Tesco of their decision to withdraw with an unequivocal statement to the e-mail address potravinydomov@itesco.sk or to the mailing address: TESCO STORES SR, a.s., Centrálna kancelária, Cesta na Senec 2, 821 04 Bratislava. For this purpose, the Customer may use the sample form of contract withdrawal HERE, which will be submitted to the Customer in person during the purchase. The deadline for contract withdrawal is maintained if the Customer sends a notice regarding the exercise of the withdrawal right before the expiry of the withdrawal period. Upon receipt of the contract withdrawal, i.e. after completing the form and sending the goods to the above address, you will be refunded the purchase price of the goods. Contract withdrawal establishes the obligation for the Customer to return the goods in the same condition as when purchased (undamaged, unpacked and complete) within a 14-day period. Goods which are protected against opening by the producer shall not be returned after removing the protective packaging or protective marking, otherwise a claim for compensation of damages or for issuing unjustified enrichment will arise for Tesco. Since after withdrawing from the contract it is not possible to withdraw from transport services (performed for the supply of goods) that was granted to the Customer, the Customer shall bear the cost of the service. If for the Customer, within a marketing event, the transport price was reduced to 0 Eur, and the returning of the Customer’s goods no longer meets the conditions of this marketing activity, the monetary amount for the returned goods will be reduced by this amount (the exact amount is indicated on the "Your Shopping" delivery note ). If the Customer chooses a different kind of receipt for returns (for the withdrawal from the contract), the cost of returning the goods will be compensated by the Customer according to the price list for the "Home Food Delivery" transport (the exact amount will be stated on the "Your Shopping" delivery note). Money (the purchase price or part thereof) will be returned to the Customer without delay to the Customer's bank account through which the payment for goods was carried out and no later than 14 days after the date on which Tesco received a notification of withdrawal.

    The Customer will receive the price of the returned goods after the due fulfillment of all the withdrawal conditions. When calculating the amount to be recovered the amount shown in the proof of purchase is used. Tesco is obliged to take the Goods back and return to the Customer the price paid for the Goods. 

    If the Customer was provided Clubcard points for the returned goods, the Clubcard points equaling the number of points awarded to the Customer for the purchase of the returned Goods will be deducted from their Clubcard account after the return of the Goods.

    2. Base Period

    The Customer has the right to cancel the agreement and return the Goods acquired through the Service without giving a reason within 14 days of receipt of the Goods.

    • (B) Goods subject to rapid deterioration or destruction;
    • (C) fee for the provided "Home Food Delivery" service.

    VIII. Complaints Procedure

    Complaints of defective Goods shall be governed by the Tesco complaint (here).

    IX. Alternative resolution for consumer disputes

    Alternative resolution for consumer disputes (ADR) is a process aimed at achieving an amicable settlement between consumers and entrepreneurs (traders) and preventing litigation between the two entities. If the Customer is dissatisfied with the outcome of their application for redress and the attempt to resolve a dispute with the entrepreneur is inconclusive, they have the right to submit a proposal to an appropriate entity for alternative dispute resolution, which in this case, for example, is Slovak Trade Inspection. Slovak Trade Inspection has all the necessary information about alternative procedures, through which the Customer can solve any dispute. More information on alternative resolutions for consumer disputes can be found at Slovak Trade Inspection: http://www.soi.sk/sk/Alternativne-riesenie-spotrebitelskych-sporov.soi.

    X. Final Provisions

    Respective legal provisions applicable and effective in the Slovak Republic apply to the rights and obligations not governed by these GTC. All disputes arising out of the Services, unless the parties reach a settlement, will be settled by a competent Court of the Slovak Republic. Tesco reserves the right to change these GTC. Changes shall not violate or restrict the rights of the Customer arising out of Shopping Lists and a performed delivery order before the entry into force of such changes. Changes to these GTC shall be valid from the date of publication on the website.
