  3. 2.3. These conditions also apply to agreements whereby user uses third parties for implementation.

  5. 2.5. The user can, to the benefit of the customer, deviate from these conditions or implement them in a different manner. However, this does not mean that these conditions do not apply. The user reserves the right to require compliance with these conditions.

  5. 3.5. The user may suspend or terminate the agreement with immediate effect if the customer fails to, or in a timely manner, comply with the obligations in the agreement or these conditions or the user has a well-founded fear that this will occur and this default justifies suspension or termination. In this case, the user has no obligation to pay damages or compensation, while the customer is obliged to do so because of breach of contract.
  6. 3.6. All offers are non-binding and valid as indicated online. The user has the right to amend an offer or withdraw when it is based on inaccurate or incomplete information provided by the customer.

Article 4: Right of withdrawal customer purchases

  1. 4.1. In case of distance purchasing, a customer has a cooling off period of 14 calendar days whereby he can terminate the contract without giving any reasons, except for products or services that are excluded from the right of withdrawal. During this reflection period, the customer takes care of the product and may examine and try it as would be usual in a shop.
  2. 4.2. The reflection period begins when the customer or a pre-designated third party has received the product or final product or part with a contract for multiple products or components or after receiving the first product with a contract for repeated delivery of goods over a given period. In a contract for the supply of digital content which is not supplied on a tangible medium and services, the reflection period starts one day after the conclusion of the agreement.
  3. 4.3. If the customer wants to use the right of withdrawal, he shall report this unambiguously within the reflection period for users. The customer must then return the product within 14 calendar days after the report as specified by the user. The cost of return will be borne by the customer.

  2. 7.2. The user is never liable for indirect damages, including consequential damages, lost profits, lost savings and damage due to business interruption. The user is also never liable for damage caused because the user assumed incorrect or incomplete information provided by the customer.
  3. 7.3. Direct damage is exclusively: the reasonable costs incurred to determine the cause and extent of the damage, the reasonable costs incurred to still implement the agreement correctly and reasonable costs to prevent or limit the damage. These costs only fall under the direct damage if it is found that the damage is attributable to the user.

  6. 7.6. The customer indemnifies the user against any claims of third parties suffering damage in connection with the execution of the agreement and of which the cause can be attributed to another than the user. If for this reason the user is addressed by third parties, the customer is obliged to assist the user both outside and in law and immediately do for him which can be expected in that case. Should the customer fail to undertake adequate measures, the user is, without notice, entitled to undertake these measures. All costs and damages that result on the part of the user and third parties are for the account and risk of the customer.

Force majeure means, in addition to what is understood in law and jurisprudence, all external causes, foreseen or unforeseen, which the user cannot influence and whereby the user is unable to meet his obligations. This could include, among other things: strikes, technical complications, illness of deployed personnel, governmental measures, failures, etc..
  3. 9.3. The user has the right to suspend his obligations during a force majeure. The user has no obligation to pay any damages as a result of the force majeure.
  4. 9.4. The parties have the right to terminate the agreement if the force majeure lasts longer than 60 days. The parties have no obligation to pay any damages as a result of the termination.
  5. 9.5. If the user has already partially fulfilled or can still meet the agreement and the section is of independent value, the user is entitled to invoice this separately. There will be a separate agreement; the customer is therefore obliged to pay this invoice.

Article 10: Complaints, applicable law and disputes
