Applicability

These general terms and conditions apply to every offer of the entrepreneur and to every distance agreement concluded between entrepreneur and consumer. Unless an exception is explicitly mentioned when purchasing.

Before the distance contract is concluded, the text of these general terms and conditions is made available to the consumer. If this is not reasonably possible, then before the distance agreement is concluded, it will be indicated that the general terms and conditions are available at the entrepreneur and can be sent free of charge at simple request of the consumer.

If the distance contract is concluded electronically, in deviation from the previous paragraph and before the distance contract is concluded, the text of these general terms and conditions may be made available to the consumer electronically in such a way that it can be stored by the consumer in a simple way on a durable data carrier. If this is not reasonably possible, before the distance contract is concluded, it will be indicated where the general terms and conditions can be taken note of by electronic means and that they will be sent free of charge by electronic means or otherwise at the request of the consumer. In the event that, in addition to these general terms and conditions, specific product or service conditions also apply, the second and third paragraphs apply mutatis mutandis and the consumer can always invoke the applicable provision that is most favorable to him in the event of conflicting general terms and conditions.


The offer

If an offer has a limited period of validity or is made under conditions, this will be explicitly stated in the offer.

The offer contains a complete and accurate description of the products and/or services offered. The description is sufficiently detailed to allow a good assessment of the offer by the consumer. If the entrepreneur uses images, these are a true representation of the offered products and/or services. Obvious mistakes or errors in the offer do not bind the entrepreneur.

Each offer contains such information that it is clear to the consumer what the rights and obligations are that are attached to the acceptance of the offer. This concerns in particular:

  • the price including taxes;
  • any delivery cost;
  • the way in which the agreement will be concluded and what actions are required for this purpose;
  • whether or not the right of withdrawal is applicable;
  • the method of payment, delivery or execution of the agreement;
  • the period for acceptance of the offer, or the period for the retention of the price;
  • the level of the fare for distance communication if the cost of using the means of distance communication is calculated on a basis other than the basic rate.
  • if the agreement is archived after its conclusion, in what way it can be consulted by the consumer;
  • the way in which the consumer can become aware of acts he does not want before concluding the contract, as well as the way in which he can restore them before the conclusion of the contract;
  • any languages in which, in addition to English, the agreement can be concluded;
  • the codes of conduct to which the entrepreneur has submitted and the way in which the consumer can consult these codes of conduct by electronic means;
  • the minimum duration of the distance contract in the case of an agreement that extends to continuous or periodic delivery of products or services;

The Agreement

The agreement is concluded, subject to the provisions of paragraph 4, at the moment of acceptance by the consumer of the offer and the fulfilment of its conditions.

If the consumer has accepted the offer electronically, the entrepreneur will immediately confirm receipt of the acceptance of the offer by electronic means. As long as the receipt of this acceptance has not been confirmed, the consumer can dissolve the agreement.

If the agreement is concluded electronically, the entrepreneur will take appropriate technical and organizational measures to secure the electronic transmission of data and ensure a secure web environment. If the consumer can pay electronically, the entrepreneur will observe appropriate security measures for this purpose.

The entrepreneur will send the following information to the consumer with the product or service, in writing or in such a way that it can be stored by the consumer in an accessible way on a durable data carrier:


Prices

During the period of validity stated in the offer, the prices of the products and/or services offered, will not be increased, except for price changes as a result of changes in VAT rates.

Contrary to the previous paragraph, the entrepreneur can offer products or services whose prices are tied to fluctuations on the financial market and over which the entrepreneur has no influence, with variable prices. This link to fluctuations and the fact that any prices quoted are target prices, are stated in the offer.

Price increases within 3 months after the conclusion of the agreement, are only permitted if they are the result of legal regulations or provisions.

Price increases from 3 months after the conclusion of the agreement are only permitted if the entrepreneur has stipulated this and:

  • a) they are the result of legal regulations or provisions
  • b) the consumer has the power to terminate the contract by the day on which the price increase takes effect
The prices mentioned in the range of products or services are inclusive or exclusive of VAT depending on the country and it’s VAT legislation.

Payment

Insofar as no later agreement has been made, the amounts owed by the consumer must be paid within fourteen days after delivery of the goods or in the case of an agreement to provide a service, within fourteen days after the issue of this agreement concerning documents.

When selling products to consumers, a partial or full advance payment may be stipulated in general terms and conditions (during the withdrawal period). When prepayment has been stipulated, the consumer cannot assert any right regarding the execution of the relevant order or service(s), before the stipulated advance payment has been made.

The consumer has the obligation to report inaccuracies in provided or stated payment details to the entrepreneur without delay. In the event of non-payment by the consumer, the entrepreneur has the right, subject to legal restrictions, to charge the reasonable costs which were made known to the consumer in advance.
