Updating client information
If the client wishes to verify the data submitted to PROZIS, this can be done by accessing his/her personal account.
At all times, client login information is to be stored in a safe place. The client will be held responsible for all orders and activity forthcoming from his/her account.
We do not recommend saving the password in the browser, where it and other personal information can be accessed by others with access to the same computer.
PROZIS uses one of the safest online ordering systems in existence, and makes a constant effort to improve its software in order to be able to offer the highest possible security level to its clients.
We use a server certificate, also known as a digital certificate, that guarantees our identity, as well as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption of transmitted data.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND CONTENTS
All intellectual property rights to the software and content available through this website belong to PROZIS, and are licensed and protected by laws and global treaties. All rights are reserved to PROZIS and its suppliers.
The contents of this website may be stored, printed or otherwise presented for your personal use only.
Publication, manipulation, distribution, or reproduction, in any format, of any content contained in this website, is forbidden, as is its linking to any business or company.
It is possible for the client to use a credit card and take advantage of the transaction speed and flexibility offered by this payment method. All transactions on our website are secure.
Is it safe to pay online using my card?
Prozis uses a state-of-the-art fraud detection and prevention mechanism. This solution allows verification of the authenticity of online payments, while ensuring our clients data integrity and security, as well as their identification.
This security feature is provided via SSL technology (Secure Socket Layer) that encrypts the communications between the client's computer and our server, so that they cannot be intercepted. Thus, Prozis reserves the right to refuse any order paid by a transaction considered illicit. All and any activities considered illegal will be immediately reported to the competent authorities.
3D Secure is a communication protocol designed to improve online payments and to enable the authentication of the card user by the credit card issuer. When paying at an online store, a credit card validation process is activated. If the credit card is considered valid, 3D Secure protocol security systems check the client's identity, resorting in real time to the credit card issuer. The issuer validates the client's identity and informs the store system that the card being used is legitimate.
The goal is to protect credit card users, minimising the possibility of fraudulent credit card use and improving the overall transaction performance. This protocol is used by Visa, with the 'Verified by Visa' designation, and by Mastercard, with the 'SecureCode' designation.
How is the credit card payment processed?
After selecting the credit card payment option and clicking on 'Place Order', the client is directed to the Redunicre payment platform where the necessary credit card data needs to be inserted, consisting of the credit card number, expiration date and security code. Finally, clicking on the button 'I validate my payment' will set the transaction in motion.
If the payment is not accepted, an error message will appear in the shopping cart window. In such an event, it is recommended to attempt the transaction again. If the problem persists however, we advise the client to contact his/her bank or credit card issuer for further information.
Once the payment is finalised, the amount will be charged from the client's credit card account. If, for any reason, it proves necessary to cancel the order, whether completely or partially, we will reimburse the corresponding amount within a maximum term of 5 working days. The transaction will show on the client's credit card extract after 2 working days, counting from the reimbursement date.
To protect our clients from potential frauds, we may ask for additional information to facilitate the payment's assessment. If such a request is made but we fail to get a reply within 3 business days, we will cancel the order and proceed to reimburse the payment.
Warning: Payments are always charged in Euros, even if prices are displayed in other currencies. Some banking entities may charge currency exchange rates. Prozis is totally alien to this fact and is not to be held responsible for it.
PayPal is a secure payment method used worldwide. For further information concerning this payment method, please visit www.paypal.com.
Save info for future PayPal transactions
By choosing this option, the client will not need to access the PayPal website when checking out future orders. The payment will automatically be charged from the PayPal account used to subscribe to this option.
At any time, the client can access his/her PayPal account on www.paypal.com and cancel this service. To do so, he/she must go to Profile > My Money > My preapproved payments. A list of all preapproved payments will be displayed, and from there the client can simply cancel the payment option associated to Prozis.
IMPORTANT: Prozis does not keep any PayPal account login information of the client.
With the exception of some rare cases alien to PROZIS, all orders placed and paid for via Credit Card, PayPal, ATM or Cash On Delivery* will be shipped on the same day, as long as the payment is realised before 14:00 on a working day. Orders paid for at a later time will be shipped on the next working day.
The bank transfer* payment option is subject to a confirmation period which can vary between 24 hours and 5 working days, according to the country from which the transfer is made. In regard to this payment method, Prozis has no control whatsoever over the term in which the transfer is executed, for which the customer's bank is responsible. In such cases, the order will be shipped on the day Prozis receives payment confirmation from the bank in question.
* The above-mentioned payment methods are not available for every country. To know what payment methods are available for the client's country, please read the information available, under "Payment Methods".
Should any concerns arise regarding the order (delivery address confirmation, payment verification, out-of-stock products, etc.), we will contact the client by Helpdesk message. We will wait for an answer from the client for three working days. The order will not be shipped until we receive an answer to our message. If no answer is received within the indicated time period, the order will be cancelled and its payment reimbursed to the client.
Once the order is shipped, the client will receive a confirmation email with the respective invoice, a tracking number and a link that allows tracking of the order on the transport service website.
The client may also access this tracking link by logging into his/her Prozis account and clicking on the "Orders" tab shown on the login page. By clicking on an order in the column "Orders History" on the left hand side of the screen, the client will be given all the information about that same order in the column "Order Details" on the right hand side of the screen, including the above-mentioned link.
It is possible that, at the time the shipping confirmation with the tracking number is sent to the client, attempting to track the order online does not yet provide any results. It may take up to 24 hours after receiving the shipping confirmation e-mail for any tracking updates to become available on the transport service website.
Orders are delivered from Monday to Friday, except for national or municipal holidays, at the address provided by the client when placing the order.
The client may receive the order at whatever address he/she prefers (with the exception of PO Boxes). All that needs to be done is to provide us with the address where he/she will be at between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. The chosen transport service will attempt to deliver the order at the address indicated by the client.
WARNING: The client cannot choose a specific delivery time, because deliveries are conditioned by the routes defined by the transport service on the respective delivery date.
Providing an incorrect or incomplete address may lead to the parcel being returned to PROZIS, leading to extra costs that will be imputable to the client. Hence we recommend the client to always make sure that the delivery address he/she provides when placing the order is complete and accurate. Once the order is processed it is no longer possible to change either the delivery address, or the billing details.
In case the client is not present at the designated address on the delivery date, the procedure will be as follows:
DHL will leave a note, requesting the addressee to call either the agency responsible for the parcel's delivery, or its general number, so that a new delivery can be scheduled on a more suitable date. The addressee has 5 working days to contact the delivery service and schedule a new delivery. If he/she fails to do so within this deadline, the order in question will be returned to Prozis.
DPD will leave a note, requesting the addressee to call either the agency responsible for the parcel's delivery, or its general number, so that a new delivery can be scheduled on a more suitable date. The addressee has 5 working days to contact the delivery service and schedule a new delivery. If he/she fails to do so within this deadline, the order in question will be returned to Prozis.
DELIVERY DEADLINESDHL Express
Once the customer's order has been shipped, the estimated delivery deadline is 1-2 working days.
Once the customer's order has been shipped, delivery is due in 3 days or more, depending on the destination country.DPD
Once the client's order has been shipped, we guarantee a delivery deadline of 4 working days.
WARNING: The delivery deadlines are guidelines and are therefore only be considered valid when there are no physical or structural impediments to delivery (e.g. incorrect delivery addresses or forces beyond our control such as strikes, missed connections and poor weather conditions, among others).
Shipping costs are automatically calculated by our system, depending on the following factors:
- the actual or volumetric weight of the parcel (whichever the highest);
- the order value (at least one free shipping option will be available for orders with a value of £29.99 or more);
- the transport service price tables, which are updated on a regular basis.
Shipping costs are automatically updated as the client adds items to the shopping cart.
In case an order is returned to Prozis for reasons not imputable to Prozis or the transport service, Prozis will reimburse the amount paid for the order with a deduction of the shipping and return costs.
The client can choose to be reimbursed via the original payment method, or by means of a reimbursement coupon that can be applied to a future order. The respective coupon will remain valid for a duration of 12 months, counting from the coupon creation date. After this period has passed, no further reimbursement can be issued. In case the original payment was made via bank transfer, the client will have to provide bank account details for the reimbursement to be realized.
If the reason for the unsuccessful delivery and the return of the order falls under the responsibility of the transport service, regardless of the chosen payment method, the client will have to send us a written complaint that will be subjected to analysis by the transport service. In case the delivery problem is due to an incomplete or incorrect delivery address, we request a proof of address from the client to be attached to the complaint (e.g. a gas, water or electricity bill).
The solution that Prozis will present to the client depends on the answer provided by the transport service. Therefore, in cases of complaints regarding the transport service, we can only present a solution to the client once the transport service informs us of their assessment. If the transport service accepts full responsibility for the return of the parcel, and all the products initially ordered are still available, we will suggest to the client a replacement order, without any additional costs. Instead of a replacement order, the client can also opt for a full refund. If the transport service does not accept responsibility, we cannot accept the complaint and as such cannot send a replacement order. The refund will then be subject to the above-mentioned terms regarding returned orders for reasons not imputable to Prozis or the transport service.
The client can only cancel the order directly from his/her account as long as it has not yet been paid for and is not already being processed. If these conditions are met, the client can simply access his/her account, click on "My Prozis account" and then on "My orders". In the column "Orders history", the client can then select the order to be cancelled, causing all relevant order information to appear in the column "Order details". At the bottom of this order details section (it may be necessary to scroll down), he/she can click on "Cancel order". Once the order is cancelled, the client will receive a confirmation message.
Order cancellation is only possible via the previously described procedure. Any cancellation request made by any other means will not be fulfilled.
Should the client wish to return one or more items, this can be done within 14 days after receiving the order, as long as the products are intact, sealed, complete and inside the original packaging. The packaging cannot be damaged, altered or scratched. It is up to the client to ensure that the returned items arrive at our facilities within 28 days, counting from the day on which the order was delivered.
To exercise the right of return, the client will have to contact our Customer Service. It will be necessary to specify the order number, the descriptions or reference numbers of the products to be returned, and how the reimbursement is to take place. Reimbursement is possible either via the original payment method or by means of a reimbursement coupon, that remains valid for 12 months after it is issued. Once this period has passed, no new reimbursement can be issued.
The client also needs to be aware if the product to be returned was acquired as part of any promotional campaign, and if any free product was attributed to the order as a result of the product's acquisition. If that is the case, it will be necessary to not only return the product in question, but also the product that was added for free. Both products are required to comply with the aforementioned guidelines.
A pack, composed of various products, can only be returned in its entirety. If the client wishes to return a product belonging to a pack, it will be necessary to return all the products that are part of that particular pack. All of the pack's products are required to comply with the aforementioned guidelines.
It is up to the client to send the item(s) to the following address:
Rua do Cais n. 198, Fontarcada
4830-345 Póvoa de Lanhoso
In case of incomplete or damaged products, products without their original packaging and/or label, or products that present signs of use, returns will not be accepted.
Neither do we accept returns of products that will expire in less than a month, underwear or swimming clothes, or offers or products that were purchased with ProzisPoints.
If we do receive an item in any of the above mentioned conditions or with the transport service label placed directly on the respective product packaging, the client will lose the right to be reimbursed and will be granted 10 days to have the item(s) picked up from our premises, paying for the collection costs.
The client will have to return the item(s), request the respective reimbursement, and subsequently place a new order.
The entire return process is described in detail in the paragraph RETURNS.
PROZIS will do everything in its power to reimburse the client as quickly as possible. PROZIS is however entitled to a maximum reimbursement term of 15 days, counting from the day the product arrives back at our warehouse.
If the payment was made by credit card, the reimbursement will be issued to the account associated with the credit card that was used for the original payment, and it will appear on the client's next bank statement.*
If the payment was made by PayPal, the reimbursement payment will be made to the respective Paypal account and will become available immediately.*
If the chosen payment method was Cash on Delivery or ATM/bank transfer, the client will be asked for the necessary details of the account on which he/she wishes to receive the reimbursement.*
* Please note that the above-mentioned payment methods are not available for every country. To know what payment methods are available for the client's country, please read the information available above, under "Payment Methods".
The client may also choose to be reimbursed through a discount coupon, regardless of the original payment method used. This coupon will remain valid for 12 months, counting from the day on which it is created. Once this period has passed, it will be impossible to realize any further reimbursement.
SHIPPING COSTS REIMBURSEMENT
In case PROZIS is liable for the return of the order, we will reimburse the respective shipping costs (e.g. in case of defective products or products different from the ones actually ordered).
However, if an order consisting of several products contains only one defective product, the shipping costs will not be reimbursed.
We take all the necessary precautions to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of the products on our website are correct. Nevertheless, situations may occur in which information regarding products, including prices and promotions, is not correctly published. In cases like these, we reserve the right not to process orders containing such products. If a client places an order for these products, they will be contacted by our Customer Service, informing them that the order cannot be shipped.
Orders may also be rejected due to other reasons, such as:
- a product being out of stock
- inability to obtain payment authorisation
- the order is considered to be fraudulent
All products, campaigns, promotions and offers are limited to the available stock and/or stock allocated for the campaign in question.
Whenever an order is placed using the Cash on Delivery payment method*, and it contains a product that we no longer have in stock, we will take the liberty to remove it from the order and dispatch the remaining products in order to keep possible delays in the process to a minimum. If the order contains one or more products that are part of a pack, this pack is to be removed from the order in its entirety. The client will in all cases be duly informed about the alteration made.

Once this period has passed, no further reimbursement will be issued. The client will be informed through a message by our Customer Service about both the order alteration and the reimbursement coupon code that is issued. If the client prefers a reimbursement via the original payment method instead of a reimbursement coupon, this can be requested by the client in a reply to the Customer Service message, by re-sending the reimbursement coupon code along with the details of the account to which the reimbursement is to be made (bank name, account holder name, IBAN and SWIFT).
If the order contains a product that is out of stock and for which ProzisPoints were exchanged, we we will take the liberty to remove it from the order and dispatch the remaining products in order to keep possible delays in the process to a minimum. The spent ProzisPoints will be put back in the client's account immediately. The client will be informed through a message by our Customer Service about the order alteration as well as the restitution of the ProzisPoints.
* Please not that the above-mentioned payment methods are not available for every country. To know what payment methods are available for the client's country, please read the information available above, under "Payment Methods".

One of the basic consumer rights is the access to services and goods corresponding to those purchased, and with warranty of proper functioning. Therefore, PROZIS guarantees the quality of its products for a period of 24 months starting on the day of purchase (except for perishable goods), offering its clients, whenever it proves legitimate, one of the following solutions, listed in order:
- Repair of the damaged item, ensuring its proper functioning and/or final quality;
- Exchange for an identical product;
- Exchange for a product with similar characteristics and purpose, after securing the client's agreement;
- Contract dissolution, leading to reimbursement, in case the previous options prove impossible.
To exercise his/her warranty right, the client will always be required to file a complaint regarding our services through the means set out in the terms and conditions of sale, as well as to return the malfunctioning product or the product that does not correspond to the purchased item.
Our Customer Service team will analyse the respective item to check the validity of the warranty claim made by the client. Exceptions are made for all situations resulting from the following, among others:
- Misuse and intentional or unintentional harm by the client;
- Normal wear and tear of the product, provided that it corresponds to the expected levels as declared by the manufacturer;
- Impossibility to confirm the malfunctioning or defect described by the client;
- All situations identified as attempted fraud.
After we have inspected the returned product, the client will be informed about the decision regarding his or her request.
In cases where the exercise of warranty proves applicable, PROZIS will promote the repairing or replacement of the item, or the reimbursement of the corresponding payment, within the shortest possible time up to a maximum of 30 days, counting from the day of the written confirmation stating that the client is entitled to exercise the right of warranty.
The reimbursement of any amount will be made through the original payment method, unless a different agreement is reached with the client.
These provisions do not affect the client's statutory rights.
