- the codes of conduct to which the contractor is subject and the arrangements for electronic access by the consumer to those codes of conduct;
- and the minimum duration of the distance contract in the case of a contract for the continuous or periodic supply of goods or services.

Article 5 - The contract

1. Subject to the provisions of paragraph 4, the contract shall be concluded when the consumer accepts the offer and the conditions laid down therein are fulfilled.
2. If the consumer has accepted the offer by electronic means, the contractor must promptly confirm receipt of acceptance of the offer by electronic means. Until receipt of such acceptance has been confirmed, the consumer may withdraw from the contract.
3. If the contract is performed electronically, the contractor shall take appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the electronic transmission of data and ensure a secure web environment. If the consumer can pay by electronic means, the contractor shall take appropriate security measures to that end.
4. The entrepreneur may inquire, within the legal framework, whether the consumer can fulfill his payment obligations and all facts and factors relevant to conclude the distance contract in a justified manner. If on the basis of this research, the contractor has good reasons not to conclude the contract, he has the right to refuse a reasoned order or request or to link it to the fulfillment of the special conditions.

2. During this period, the consumer shall treat the product and its packaging with care. Unpack or use the product only to the extent necessary to assess whether he wishes to keep the product.

Article 13 - Payment
1. Unless otherwise agreed, amounts due from the consumer shall be paid within 14 days of the start of the cooling-off period referred to in Article 6(1). In the case of a contract for the provision of services, this period shall begin after the consumer has received confirmation of the contract.
2. When selling products to consumers, the advance payment to be provided for in the general conditions may never exceed 50%.

3. The consumer is obliged to inform the entrepreneur immediately of any errors in the payment data provided or mentioned.
4. In the event of non-payment by the consumer, the contractor, subject to legal restrictions, has the right to charge the consumer reasonable expenses that he has previously communicated to the consumer.

Article 14 - Complaints
1. The policyholder shall have a complaint handling procedure with sufficient notice. It shall examine the complaint in accordance with that complaint procedure.
2. Complaints concerning the performance of the contract shall be submitted to the contractor in full and in detail within a reasonable time after the consumer has discovered the defects.
3. Requests for compensation submitted to the policyholder shall be answered within fourteen days of receipt. If it is foreseeable that the examination of a complaint will take longer, the policyholder shall reply within 14 days with an acknowledgement of receipt, indicating when the consumer can expect a wider response.

If the entrepreneur so wishes, the consumer must give his opinion in writing within five weeks of the entrepreneur's written request to that effect, if he also wishes to do so or if he wishes to submit the dispute to the court having jurisdiction to that end. If the contractor is not informed of the consumer's choice within five weeks, the contractor has the right to refer the dispute to the competent court.
6. The Dispute Committee shall decide in accordance with the conditions laid down in the Rules of Procedure of the Dispute Committee. The decisions of the Dispute Committee shall be adopted by binding opinion.
7. 1.

Article 16 - Additional or divergent provisions
Additional provisions or derogations from these general conditions may not be detrimental to the consumer. They must be recorded in writing or in such a way that they can be stored in an accessible form on a durable computer medium.

Article 7 - Costs in case of withdrawal

2. If the consumer has paid an amount, the contractor will refund the amount as soon as possible, but within 30 days of reshipment or withdrawal.

Article 8 - Exclusion of the right of withdrawal
The entrepreneur may exclude the consumer's right of withdrawal, provided that this is provided for in paragraphs 2 and 3. The exclusion of the right of withdrawal shall apply only if the contractor has clearly indicated this in the offer, at least sufficiently in advance of the conclusion of the contract.
2. The exclusion of the right of withdrawal is only possible for products:
(a) that the contractor has performed the services in accordance with the consumer's specifications;
(b) which are clearly of a personal nature;
(c) which by their nature cannot be returned;

c. relating to betting and lotteries.

Article 9 - The price
1. During the period of validity indicated in the offer, the prices of the products and/or services offered will not be increased, unless the prices change as a result of changes in VAT rates.
2. By way of derogation from the previous paragraph, the entrepreneur may offer products or services whose prices are subject to fluctuations in the financial market that the entrepreneur cannot influence, in the face of variable prices. This dependence on fluctuations and the fact that the prices mentioned are indicative prices are mentioned in the offer.
3. Price increases within three months of the conclusion of the contract are only permitted if they result from statutory regulations or provisions.
4. Price increases starting three months after the conclusion of the contract are only permitted if the policyholder has concluded them, and
(a) result from legal rules or provisions, or
(b) the consumer has the right to withdraw from the contract on the day on which the price increase takes effect.
5. The prices indicated in the offer of products and services shall include VAT.

Article 10 - Compliance and warranty
1. The Contractor guarantees that the products and/or services comply with the contract, the specifications mentioned in the offer, meet the requirements of reasonable quality and/or usefulness and comply with legal provisions and/or government requirements. If this has been agreed, the contractor also guarantees that the product is suitable for a purpose other than the normal one.
2. A regulation offered as a guarantee by the contractor, manufacturer or importer does not eliminate any rights and claims that the consumer may have against the contractor under the law and/or the distance contract in the event of a breach of the obligations of the contractor.

Article 11 - Delivery and performance
1. The Contractor shall take the utmost care in receiving and executing orders for products and in assessing requests for services.
2. The place of delivery is the address that the consumer has given to the company.
3. Observing the provisions of article 4 of these general conditions, the company will execute the accepted orders promptly but within thirty days, unless a longer delivery time has been agreed upon. If delivery is delayed or if an order cannot be executed or can only be partially executed, the consumer will be informed at the latest one month after the placing of the order. In this case, the consumer has the right to terminate the contract of sale.


4. In the event of termination in accordance with the preceding paragraph, the contractor will refund the amount paid by the consumer as soon as possible and no later than thirty days after the termination of the contract.
5. If delivery of an ordered product is not possible, the contractor will make every effort to make available a product to replace the ordered product. At the latest at the time of delivery is clearly and understandably indicated that it is being delivered a replacement item. In the case of replacement items, the right of withdrawal cannot be excluded. The costs of return shall be borne by the Contractor.
6. The contractor assumes the risk of damage and/or loss of products until delivery to the consumer, unless otherwise expressly agreed. To this end in an appropriate manner, it is understood that, in the event of changes made during the period during which the offer is being made, the provision which is most advantageous to the consumer shall prevail.

The Dutch version of these general terms and conditions of business shall be the sole basis for the interpretation of these general terms and conditions of business.
