Article 3 - Applicability
  • These general terms and conditions apply to every offer made by the company and to every distance contract and orders between company and consumer.
  • Before the distance contract is entered into, the text of these general terms and conditions will be made available to the consumer. If this is not reasonably possible, before the distance contract is concluded, it will be indicated that the general terms and conditions can be viewed by the company and they will be sent free of charge as soon as possible at the request of the consumer.
  • If the distance contract is concluded electronically, by way of derogation from the previous paragraph and before the distance contract is concluded, the text of these general terms and conditions can be made available electronically to the consumer in such a way that the consumer can store them simply 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 consulted electronically and that at the request of the consumer they will be sent free of charge, by electronic means or otherwise.
  • In the event that specific product or service conditions apply in addition to these general terms and conditions, the second and third paragraphs shall apply mutatis mutandis and the consumer may, in the event of conflicting general terms and conditions, always invoke the applicable provision that is most favorable to them.
  • If one or more provisions in these general terms and conditions at any time are wholly or partially void or invalid, then the agreement and these conditions remain intact and the provision in question will be replaced by a provision that approached the scope of the original as much as possible.
  • Situations that are not covered in these general terms and conditions must be assessed 'in the spirit' of these general terms and conditions.
  • Lack of clarity about the explanation or content of one or more provisions of our terms and conditions should be explained 'in the spirit' of these terms and conditions.

Article 4 - The quote
  • If a quote has a limited period of validity or is made subject to conditions, this will be explicitly stated in the quote.
  • The quote is without obligation. The company is entitled to change and adjust the quote.
  • The quote contains a complete and accurate description of the offered products and/or services. The description is sufficiently detailed to allow a proper assessment of the quote by the consumer. If the company uses images, these are a true reflection of the offered products and/or services. Obvious mistakes or errors in the quote are not binding for the company.
  • All images, specifications and information in the quote are indicative and cannot lead to compensation or dissolution of the agreement.
  • Images with products are a true reflection of the products offered. The company cannot guarantee that the displayed colors exactly match the real colors of the products.
  • Each quote contains information such that it is clear to the consumer what rights and obligations are attached to the acceptance of the quote. This concerns in particular:
    • the price including taxes;
    • possible shipping costs;
    • the way in which the contract will be concluded and which actions are necessary for this;
    • whether or not the right of withdrawal applies;
    • the method of payment, delivery and execution of the agreement;
    • the period for accepting the quote or the period within which the company guarantees the price;
    • the level of the fee for distance communication if the costs of using the technique for distance communication are calculated on a basis other than the regular basic rate for the means of communication used;
    • whether the agreement is filed after conclusion and, if so, how it can be consulted by the consumer;
    • the way in which the consumer, prior to concluding the contract, can check the data they have provided under the contract and correct it if necessary;
    • any other languages, in addition to Dutch, in which the contract can be concluded;
    • the codes of conduct to which the trader is subject and the way the consumer can consult these codes of conduct electronically; and
    • the minimum duration of the distance contract in case of an extended transaction.

If the consumer can pay electronically, the company will observe appropriate security measures.
  4.
