13.7.4. power and water supply interruptions,
13.7.5. lack of access to the Internet,
13.7.6. delays or strikes by transportation companies or other Rainbowcups suppliers, service providers or subcontractors,
13.7.7. natural disasters, epidemics, pandemics, government actions and other force majeure actions not mentioned above.
Delays in Order completion resulting from the reasons mentioned above do not give rise to any liability to Rainbowcups for damages to the Customer.
13.8. Rainbowcups will endeavour to inform customers of the causes of extended Delivery Times described in the preceding point.

14. Complaints.

14.1. A condition for investigating a complaint is that the complaint is made in writing by completing an online complaint form provided by Rainbowcups at the Customer’s request by following the instructions contained therein, which is.
14.2. The complaint should include the order number, the exact description of the non-compliance, photos and videos confirming the non-compliance, the scope of the complaint request and have completed all other required fields in the online form.
14.3. The day of reception of the complaint is the day of the complete filling of the online complaint form, including uploading of the photos into the form.
14.4. The final deadline for lodging a complaint concerning the delivery, damage to the parcels, Product shortages in the delivery expires on the 5th working day from the moment of receiving the parcel by the Customer (it results from the courier contracts), and for shipments outside the Polish territory, according to the CMR convention, on the 3rd working day. After these deadlines, Rainbowcups does not warrant that any claims related to deliveries can be made.
14.5. Complaints related to the quality of courier shipments will be considered based on a damage protocol drawn up jointly with the courier upon receipt of the delivered Products. Lack of a damage protocol may be a reason for Rainbowcups to refuse to accept a complaint. The time for dealing with Complaints concerning deliveries and courier shipments is extended by the time of dealing with them by a courier or transport company.
14.6. The final deadline for filing a complaint regarding printing errors is on the 10th working day from the date of receipt of the shipment by the Customer.
14.7. Due to technological differences resulting from the way colours are displayed by most computer monitors and printing technology (which uses CMYK or Pantone colour space), comparing the colour of a printout with the colour presented on the monitor is technologically incorrect. The lack of conformity of the colours of the printout with the screen image cannot, therefore, be a reason for a complaint.
14.8. Rainbowcups makes efforts to reproduce the colours contained in the Graphic Designs as close as possible. Due to the fact that many printing machines and techniques are used in the printing process, between which there are differences in the representation of some colours, and raw materials from many manufacturers are used, the printing of the same or similar Graphic Design there may occur colour differences. Such a situation may occur when the Order placed earlier is resumed or when several Products are made with the same or similar Graphic Design. These differences cannot be relied upon as a basis for a warranty claim regarding Products supplied by Rainbowcups.
14.9. Due to the specification of production machines, materials used and the printing and production process, the following deviations are permitted:
14.9.1. when cutting the sheet for single Customized Product: tolerance up to 2 mm;
14.9.2. when bonding disposable cups and paper bowls: shifts on the longitudinal edge of the bonding resulting in a mismatch between horizontal and vertical graphic elements: tolerance up to 4 mm;
14.9.3. deviations of the fixed colour scheme by +/- 15%, resulting in particular from the properties of the media used and the printing processes;
14.9.4. when wrapping the Product with the second layer of paper, the displacement of the top-down outer layer from the base Product: tolerance up to 3 mm;
14.9.5. shifts of individual colours in relation to each other in the printing process using the pad printing technique: tolerance up to 2 mm;
14.9.6. with pad printing technology, the print elements can distort, shift or rotate, and the repeatability of the print between individual cups is limited. For technical reasons, it is not possible to avoid these effects.;
14.9.7. other tolerances and dimensions given in the Catalogue.
The customer accepts the above and assumes that if a complaint is made for the above reasons, such a  complaint will be rejected by Rainbowcups.
14.10. The materials used in samples of Rainbowcups Products are examples and may differ from those used in the Products provided. The difference is due to the use of materials from different manufacturers or may be due to a different printing technique.
14.11. If the goods are collected by Rainbowcups, if the Customer does not make the goods available for collection on the previously confirmed with Rainbowcups date, the Rainbowcups will invoice the Customer for 50 EUR with the obligation to pay.
14.12. Rainbowcups evaluates the validity of a Complaint based on archived samples of Products and tests of returned Products. In order to resolve the complaint, Rainbowcups may require the Customer to return all or part of the Products from the Order. If the complaint is accepted, Rainbowcups shall bear the cost of such a return. Otherwise, the Customer shall be provided with a test report containing photos and/or their recording, and the Customer shall be charged with the cost of collecting and shipping the goods increased by the amount of 60 EUR net as the cost of performing a test of products and its documentation.
14.13. If a complaint is rejected, products returned to the Rainbowcups will be returned back to the Customer. If the Customer does not collect the return shipment, the products will be disposed of at the Customer’s expense at 1 EUR per each kilogram of products. Shipping and disposal costs will be invoiced to the Customer with payment obligation.
14.14. Rainbowcups undertakes to process the complete complaint completed following the instructions on the online complaint form within 30 working days of receipt. In order to complete the complaint procedure, the Customer can be asked to return part or all of the Order. The time of dispatch and waiting for the return of the complained Order extends the time of processing the complaint. If the Customer refuses to return a defective Product (whole Order or part of it – at the discretion of Rainbowcups), the complaint is automatically rejected.
14.15. The date on which the complaint is considered is the date on which the decision to accept or reject the complaint is sent to the Customer by Rainbowcups.
14.16. If a complaint is accepted for a number of Products less than that specified in Catalogue as the Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ), rainbowcups will refund the Customer the amount resulting from the number of defective Products, without the possibility of replacement with nondefective Products. In particular, this applies to defective Customized Products in quantities less than MOQ or in excess over a multiple of MOQ, which are also smaller than MOQ. For example, if 2350 cups with a MOQ of 1,000 are defective, then 2000 cups will be re-manufactured, and for 350 cups the Customer will receive a refund. Returned products will be disposed of at the expense of rainbowcups.
14.17. The maximum level of compensation for a complained Order may not exceed 100% of the value of the Order, or if the Customer does not return all complained Products to Rainbowcups, up to 100% of the value of the returned Products.
14.18. All reimbursements, payments or debt collections will be made according to whole section 11.
14.19. Rainbowcups is responsible for defects in Products within 6 months of delivery.
14.20. Rainbowcups’ liability is limited to the Products themselves. In the event of defects in the Products, delays or other situations described in these Terms and Conditions, Rainbowcups shall not be liable for any lost Customer benefit.
