We publish all information from the manufacturer regarding the change of the parameters of the manufactured product, termination of production, unavailability of the product or even the exclusion of goods from our offer, even if such goods are still produced, in two ways. Not only on our website right next to the products; in addition, we will also notify you of the change via notification email.
