3. You must be at least 18 years old to place an order. If you are not 18, we ask that you have the order placed by your parents or legal guardian. If we notice that an order has been placed by a minor, we can refuse this order.

 

4. Placing an order on the website constitutes explicit acceptance of our general terms and conditions of sale, which are always available via the website.

 

5. If you order online, we will also send you a copy of these general terms and conditions in a format that you can save or print together with the order confirmation or at the latest upon delivery. We recommend that you always do this.

 

6. If additional special conditions apply in addition to these general conditions, the above also applies to those special conditions. If our general terms and conditions would conflict with those special terms and conditions, you as a consumer can always invoke the most advantageous text in your favor.

 

Article 3    Our Offer and your order

1. If an offer has only a limited period of validity or is subject to certain conditions, we will explicitly state this in our offer.

 

2. We always describe as completely and accurately as possible what we sell you and how the ordering process will proceed. In any case, the description is sufficiently detailed to allow you to make a good assessment. If we use images, they are a true representation of the goods and / or services offered. However, to err is human, and if we are blatantly mistaken, we are under no obligation to deliver to you.

 

3. Your order is complete and the agreement between us is final as soon as we confirm your order by e-mail and as soon as we have received approval from the card issuer for your payment transaction with credit or debit cards. We accept: Bancontact, Ideal, Visa, Mastercard, PayPall & Apple Pay. If the issuer of your card refuses to agree to your payment to us, we cannot be held responsible for delays in the delivery and / or non-delivery of your order. Orders without valid payment in the name of the registered cardholder will not be accepted or processed.

 

4. To purchase a product, add the product to your shopping cart. Afterwards you enter your contact details and billing information. Then you choose your method of delivery, during the last step you get an overview page, you accept our terms and conditions and confirm your payment by pressing the order button with the caption “order with payment obligation”. Once you have completed these steps, your purchase is final.

 

Article 4    Right of withdrawal

1. If you buy goods or services from us, you have the right to decide that you do not want to keep the goods for 14 days from delivery or [1] the conclusion of the contract. You can then return your order without paying a fine and without giving any reason (you pay the costs yourself). Within 14 days after we have received your order back or you have indicated that you want to cancel the agreement, we will refund you the full purchase price.

 

2. The direct costs of returning the goods are therefore for your account. We will indicate the cost of this or make an estimate, if this cannot be reasonably calculated in advance. If the goods cannot be returned by post, we will come and collect them from you and you will not be charged for this.

 

3. We may withhold the refund until we have received the goods back or until you have demonstrated that you have returned the goods, whichever comes first.

 

4. During the first 14 days after delivery, we expect you to handle the order and packaging with care. If you still want to be able to return the goods as described above, you may only unpack or use them to the extent necessary to assess whether you wish to keep them properly. Returned goods may be appropriate, but may not have been used. If you return the goods, this should if possible be done together with the original packaging, with all accessories supplied and in the original condition and packaging, taking into account our instructions below.

 

5. You can return your return package by post or courier.
