CLAIMS

1. A method of feedback for a ceramic sanitary ware, which detects the behaviors and preferences of the user, records said behaviors and preferences and provides feedback to its user, characterized in that it comprises the process steps of

• recording the interventions of the user in the toilet seat cover and/or the toilet seat and/or the automatic flushing system,

• comparing the recorded user interventions with the operating principle predefined in the system, and

• informing the user about the differences between the defined operating principle and the user intervention.

2. Method of feedback for the ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user, according to Claim 1, characterized in that in the embodiment where the use of the ceramic sanitary ware has been completed and the ceramic sanitary ware has been automatically flushed by the flushing system, in case said user intervention is the activation of the flushing system again by the user, the user is informed about the fact that the flushing process has been performed one more time manually, although the flushing process has already taken place automatically.

3. Method of feedback for the ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user, according to Claim 1, characterized in that in an embodiment where it is possible to adjust the quantity of liquid used by the automatic flushing system during the flushing process, in case said user intervention is the flushing process being performed again manually despite the flushing process having taken place automatically, the user is informed that he/she may increase the quantity of liquid used for flushing.

4. Method of feedback for the ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user, according to Claim 1, characterized in that in an embodiment where it is possible to detect the duration of use of the ceramic sanitary ware and/or the way of using the ceramic sanitary ware, i.e. the use of the same in a seated or standing position, and it is possible to perform the flushing of the ceramic sanitary ware with at least two different quantities of the flushing liquid, in case said user intervention is the flushing being performed with the quantity of liquid that is greater than the other quantity although it is detected that the ceramic sanitary ware has been used for a short duration and/or in a standing position, the user is informed that although the flushing with the quantity of liquid smaller than the other quantity could be sufficient to clean the ceramic sanitary ware, the flushing has been performed with the volume of liquid greater than the other volume.

5. Method of feedback for the ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user, according to Claim 1, characterized in that in an embodiment where it is possible to detect the contamination level of the ceramic sanitary ware by means of the sensors and where the flushing process has been performed with the quantity of flushing liquid appropriate for the contamination level after the use and it has been detected by said sensors that the ceramic

sanitary ware has been cleaned after the flushing, in case said user intervention is the flushing system being triggered one more time by the user after the automatic flushing process the user is informed that he/she has manually activated the flushing system again despite the ceramic sanitary ware having already been cleaned.

6. Method of feedback for the ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user, according to Claim 1, characterized in that in an embodiment where it is possible to detect the contamination level of the ceramic sanitary ware by means of the sensors and it is possible for the user to set the contamination level required for the realization of the flushing process, in case said intervention is the manual activation of the flushing system by the user after the use whereas it is possible to perform the flushing process automatically by setting the contamination level required for the realization of the flushing process to a level lower than the currently selected level, the user is informed that he/she may set the contamination level required for the realization of the flushing process to a lower value.

7. Method of feedback for the ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user, according to Claim 1, characterized in that in a ceramic sanitary ware where the position of the toilet seat cover may be detected, in case said intervention is the activation of the flushing system by the user while the toilet seat cover is open, the user is informed that this situation could cause the problems in terms of hygiene.

8. Method of feedback for the ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user, according to Claim 1, characterized in that said user information is provided via at least one display and/or panel.

9. Method of feedback for the ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user, according to Claim 1, characterized in that said user information is provided via at least one notification to be sent to at least one user device with network connection.

10. A ceramic sanitary ware, which detects the behaviors and preferences of the user, records said behaviors and preferences and provides feedback to its user, characterized in that it is a ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback, which operates according to the method described above.

11. Ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user according to Claim 10 characterized in that it comprises at least one sensor, which enables to detect the movement and/or proximity and/or contamination and/or the position of at least one component.

12. Ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user according to Claim 11 characterized in that said sensor is a movement and/or proximity sensor.

13. Ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user according to Claim 11 characterized in that said sensor is a contamination sensor enabling the contamination level to be detected.

14. Ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user according to Claim 11 characterized in that said sensor is a sensor capable of detecting the position of the toilet seat cover and/or the toilet seat.

15. Ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user according to Claim 10 characterized in that it comprises at least one actuator, which provides the automatic movement of the toilet seat cover and/or the toilet seat and/or enables the ceramic sanitary ware to be flushed.

16. Ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user according to Claim 15 characterized in that said actuator is an actuator capable of detecting the position of the toilet seat cover and/or the toilet seat.

17. Ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user according to Claim 10 characterized in that it comprises at least one main processing unit, which manages the operation of at least one sensor and/or at least one actuator and which enables the information provided by the sensors and/or actuators to be interpreted.

18. Ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user according to Claim 10 characterized in that it comprises at least one display and/or at least one panel enabling the differences between the defined operating principle and the user intervention to be transmitted to the user.

19. Ceramic sanitary ware providing feedback to its user according to Claim 10 characterized in that it comprises at least one communication unit enabling the main processing unit to be connected to the network, in the embodiment where the differences between the defined operating principle and the user intervention are to be transmitted to at least one user device connected to the network.
