1. These general terms and conditions apply to every offer made by the entrepreneur and every distance contract realised between the entrepreneur and the consumer.

2. Before the distance contract is concluded, the text of these general conditions shall be made available to the consumer. If this is not reasonably possible, then before concluding the distance contract, it shall be stated that the general terms and conditions can be inspected at the entrepreneur's premises and that they will be sent to the consumer free of charge as soon as possible at the consumer's request.

3. If the distance contract is concluded electronically, then, contrary to the previous paragraph, and before the distance contract is concluded, the text of these general terms and conditions will be made available to the consumer in electronic form in such a way that the consumer can easily store them on a durable data carrier. If this is not reasonably possible, before the agreement at a distance is concluded, it shall be indicated where the general conditions can be consulted electronically and that they will be sent to the consumer free of charge, at his request, either electronically or in some other manner.

4. In the event that specific product or service conditions apply in addition to these general terms and conditions, the second and third paragraphs apply by analogy and, in the event of conflicting general terms and conditions, the consumer can always invoke the applicable provision that is most favourable to them.



1. If an offer has a limited validity period or is made subject to conditions, this shall be explicitly stated in the offer.

2. The offer contains a complete and accurate description of the products and services offered. The description is sufficiently detailed to allow the consumer to assess the offer correctly. If the entrepreneur uses images, these reflect the products and services offered. Obvious mistakes or obvious errors in the offer are not binding to the entrepreneur.

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

- The price including taxes;

- the possible costs of delivery;

- the way in which the agreement will be brought about and which actions are required for this;

- whether or not the right of withdrawal is applicable;

- the method of payment, delivery and implementation of the agreement;

- the period for accepting the offer, or the period within which the entrepreneur guarantees the price;

- the size of the fee for distance communication if the cost of using the technology for distance communication is calculated on a basis other than the regular basic rate for the means of communication used;

- whether the agreement is archived after its conclusion and, if so, in what way it can be consulted by the consumer.

- the manner in which the consumer, before concluding the contract, can check the data provided by him in the framework of the contract and, if desired, correct them;

- any other languages besides Dutch in which the contract can be concluded;

- the codes of conduct to which the trader is subject and how the consumer can consult these codes of conduct electronically; and

- the minimum duration of the distance contract in the event of an extended transaction.



1. The agreement comes into being, subject to that which is stipulated in paragraph 4, at the moment at which the consumer accepts the offer and the conditions thereby specified are fulfilled.

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

3. If the agreement is created electronically, the entrepreneur will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the electronic transfer of data and ensure a safe web environment. Likewise, if the consumer can pay electronically, the entrepreneur will observe appropriate safety measures.

4. The entrepreneur may - within legal limits - obtain information about the consumer's ability to fulfil his payment obligations and about all those facts and factors that are important for a responsible conclusion of the distance contract. Based on this investigation, the entrepreneur has good reason not to enter into the agreement; he is entitled to refuse an order or request while giving reasons or attaching special conditions to the implementation.

5. The entrepreneur will, together with the product or service, send the consumer the following information, in writing or in such a way that the consumer can store it in an accessible manner on a durable data carrier:

a. the visiting address of the entrepreneur's business establishment where the consumer may lodge complaints;

b. the conditions on which and how the consumer may exercise the right of withdrawal or a clear statement regarding the exclusion of the right of withdrawal;

c. the information on guarantees and existing after-sales service;

d. the data included in article 4, paragraph 3 of these conditions, unless the entrepreneur has already provided the consumer with these data before the implementation of the agreement;

e. the requirements for cancelling the agreement if the agreement has a duration of more than one year or is indefinite.

6. In the case of a long-term transaction, the provision in the previous paragraph only applies to the first delivery.



In case of delivery of products:

1. When purchasing products, the consumer can dissolve the contract without giving reasons within a period of fourteen days. This reflection period commences on the day after receipt of the product by the consumer or a previously designated by the consumer and the entrepreneur announced representative.

2. During the reflection period, the consumer will handle the product and packaging with care. He will only unpack or use the product to the extent necessary to judge whether he wishes to keep the product. If he exercises his right of withdrawal, he will return the product with all accessories supplied and - if reasonably possible - in the original condition and packaging to the entrepreneur, according to the entrepreneur's reasonable and clear instructions.

In case of delivery of services:

3. When services are supplied, the consumer has the option of dissolving the agreement without giving reasons for a period of at least fourteen days starting on the day of agreeing.

4. To use his right of withdrawal, the consumer will comply with the reasonable and clear instructions provided by the entrepreneur in the offer and at the latest on delivery.



1. If the Consumer uses his right of withdrawal, he shall pay no more than the costs of returning the goods.

2. If the Consumer has made a payment, the entrepreneur shall return this amount as soon as possible, but within less than 30 days after the return or withdrawal.



1. The entrepreneur can preclude the consumer from having a right of withdrawal as far as this is provided for in paragraphs 2 and 3. However, the exclusion of the right of withdrawal is only valid if the entrepreneur clearly stated this fact when making the offer, or at least in good time before concluding the contract.

2. Exclusion of the right of withdrawal is only possible for products:

a. that the entrepreneur has created in accordance with the specifications of the consumer;

b. that are clearly of a personal nature

c. that cannot be returned due to their nature

d. that spoil or age quickly;

e. whose price depends on fluctuations in the financial market on which the entrepreneur has no influence;

f. for single newspapers and magazines

g. for audio- and video-recordings and computer software of which the consumer has broken the seal.

3. Exclusion of the right of withdrawal is only possible for services:

a. relating to accommodation, transport, restaurant business or leisure activities to be performed on a specific date or during a specific period

b. of which the delivery has started with the express consent of the consumer before the period for reflection has expired;

c. relating to betting and lotteries.



1. During the period of validity mentioned in the offer, the prices of the products and services offered shall not be increased, except for price changes resulting from changes in VAT rates.

2. Contrary to the previous paragraph, the entrepreneur may offer products or services whose prices are subject to fluctuations in the financial market that are beyond the entrepreneur's control at variable prices. The offer shall state this link with fluctuations and the fact that any prices mentioned are recommended prices.

3. Price increases within three months after the conclusion of the agreement are only allowed if they are the result of statutory regulations or provisions.

4. Price increases from three months after the conclusion of the agreement are only allowed if the entrepreneur has stipulated it and:

a. they are the result of statutory regulations or stipulations; or

b. the consumer is authorised to terminate the contract on the day the price increase takes effect.

5. The prices mentioned in the offer of products or services include VAT.



1. The entrepreneur guarantees that the products and services comply with the contract, with the specifications listed in the offer, reasonable reliability and serviceability requirements, and the existing statutory provisions and government regulations on the date the contract was concluded. If agreed, the entrepreneur also guarantees that the product is suitable for other than regular use.

2. A guarantee provided by the entrepreneur, manufacturer or importer does not affect the legal rights and claims that the consumer, based on the agreement, can assert against the entrepreneur.



1. The entrepreneur shall take the greatest possible care when receiving and executing orders for products and when assessing applications to provide services.

2. The place of delivery is the address that the consumer has provided to the company.

3. Subject to what is stated in Article 4 of these General Terms and Conditions, the company shall execute accepted orders with convenient speed but at least within 30 days unless a more extended delivery period has been agreed. If the delivery has been delayed, or when an order cannot be filled or can be filled only partially, the consumer shall be informed about this within 30 days after the order was placed. In that case, the consumer has the right to dissolve the agreement free of charge and the right to possible compensation.

4. In case of dissolution in accordance with the previous paragraph, the entrepreneur shall return the amount paid by the consumer as soon as possible, but at the latest within 30 days after dissolution.

5. If delivery of an ordered product turns out to be impossible, the entrepreneur shall make an effort to provide a replacement article. The fact that a replacement article is being delivered will be communicated in a clear and comprehensible manner, at the latest upon delivery. The right of withdrawal cannot be excluded with replacement articles. The entrepreneur shall bear the cost of any return shipment.

6. The risk of damage or loss of products rests with the entrepreneur up to the moment of delivery to the consumer or a previously designated and notified to the entrepreneur representative, unless otherwise expressly agreed.



1. The consumer can terminate an agreement entered into indefinitely, which extends to the regular delivery of products (including electricity) or services at any time, subject to the agreed termination rules and a notice of up to one month.

2. The consumer may contract for a definite period, which extends to the regular delivery of products (including electricity) or services, at any time at the end of the fixed term denounces the applicable termination rules and a notice not exceeding one month.

3. The consumer can terminate the agreements referred to in the previous paragraphs:

- terminate them at all times and not be limited to termination at a specific time or during a specific period;

- at least terminate them in the same manner as he concluded them;

- always terminate them with the same period of notice as the entrepreneur has stipulated for himself.

4. An agreement that has been entered into for a definite period and extends to the regular delivery of products (including electricity) or services may not be tacitly extended or renewed for a definite period.

5. Notwithstanding the preceding paragraph, a fixed-term contract that has been concluded for the regular supply of daily or weekly newspapers or magazines may be tacitly renewed for a maximum period of three months if the consumer has the right to terminate this renewed contract before the end of the renewal period, with a period of notice that does not exceed one month.

6. A fixed-term contract that has been concluded for the regular supply of products or services may only be automatically prolonged for an indefinite period if the consumer has at all times the right to terminate, with a period of notice that does not exceed one month and a period that does not exceed three months if the contract is to regularly supply daily or weekly newspapers or magazines, but less than once a month.

7. Agreements with a limited term for the regular supply, by way of introduction, of daily or weekly newspapers and magazines (trial or introductory subscription) shall not be automatically continued and shall end automatically at the end of the trial or introductory period.

8. If a contract lasts more than one year, after one year, the consumer may at any time terminate with a notice of up to one month, unless the reasonableness and fairness are resisting the termination before the end of the agreed term.



1. As far as no other date has been agreed, sums payable by the consumer should be paid within fourteen days after the start of the reflection period, as referred to in article 6, paragraph 1. In the case of an agreement to provide a service, this period shall start after the consumer has received the confirmation of the agreement.

2. When selling products to consumers, general terms and conditions may never stipulate an advance payment of more than 50%. Furthermore, when an advance payment has been stipulated, the consumer cannot invoke any right regarding the execution of the order or service(s) concerned before the stipulated advance payment has been made.

3. The consumer must immediately report inaccuracies in payment data provided or mentioned to the entrepreneur.

4. In case of non-payment on the part of the consumer and subject to legal restrictions, the entrepreneur is entitled to charge any predetermined reasonable costs incurred to the consumer.



1. The entrepreneur shall have a sufficiently publicised complaints procedure and handle the complaint under this.

2. Complaints about the implementation of the agreement must be submitted to the entrepreneur within a reasonable time, fully and clearly described, after the consumer has found the defects.

3. Complaints submitted to the entrepreneur shall be answered within fourteen days, calculated from the date of receipt. If a complaint requires a foreseeably longer processing time, the entrepreneur shall respond within fourteen days with a notice of receipt and an indication of when the consumer can expect a more detailed answer.

4. A complaint about a product, a service or the entrepreneur's service can also be submitted via a complaint form or by contacting our office.



1. Contracts between the entrepreneur and the consumer to which these general terms and conditions relate are exclusively governed by Dutch law.

2. Disputes between the consumer and the entrepreneur about the formation or the performance of contracts related to products and services to be delivered or that have been delivered by this entrepreneur can be submitted with the Dispute Committee Webshop, Postbus 90600, 2509 LP in The Hague (www.sgc.nl) with due observance of the provisions set out below.

3. The Disputes Committee only considers a dispute if the consumer has submitted their complaint to the entrepreneur within a reasonable period of time.

4. The dispute should be submitted in writing to the Disputes Committee no more than three months after the dispute arose.

5. If the consumer wishes to dispute to the Disputes Committee, the entrepreneur is bound by this choice. When the entrepreneur wants to do that, the consumer will have to speak out in writing within five weeks after a written request made by the entrepreneur, whether he so desires or wants the dispute to be handled by the competent court. If the entrepreneur does not receive the consumer's choice within five weeks, then the entrepreneur has the right to submit the dispute to the competent court.

6. The Disputes Committee's decision is made under the conditions set out in the regulations of the Disputes Committee. The decisions of the Disputes Committee are through binding advice.

7. The Disputes Committee will not deal with a dispute or terminate their intervention if the trader has been granted a suspension of payments, gone bankrupt, or has terminated business activities before the committee dealt with the dispute during a session and rendered a final decision ruling.

8. If, in addition to the Disputes Committee Webshop, another recognised arbitration board or one affiliated with the Stichting Geschillencommissies for Consumentenzaken (SGC) or the Klachteninstituut Financiële Dienstverlening (Kifid) has jurisdiction, the Geschillencommissie Webshop has exclusive jurisdiction over disputes concerning mainly the method of distance selling or the provision of services. For all other disputes, the other disputes committees recognised by the SGC or Kifid shall be competent.



1. Webshop Keurmerk guarantees the fulfilment of the binding opinion of the Disputes Committee Webshop by its members unless the member decides to submit the binding opinion within two months after the despatch thereof for review by the court. This guarantee revives if the binding opinion has been upheld after review by the court and the judgement that shows this has become final. Up to an amount of €10,000 per binding opinion, this amount will be paid to the consumer by Webshop Keurmerk. For amounts greater than €10,000 per binding opinion, €10,000 will be paid. Webshop Keurmerk must try to ensure that the member complies with the binding opinion for the excess amount.

2. For this guarantee, it is required that consumers submit a written appeal to Webshop Keurmerk and that they hand over the claim on the entrepreneur to Webshop Keurmerk. If the claim on the entrepreneur exceeds €10,000,- it will be offered to consumers to the extent that the claim above €10,000 will be transferred to the Stichting Webshop Keurmerk, who, in its name and costs shall try to get payment and fulfilment of these rights to the consumer.



Additional provisions or provisions deviating from these General Terms and Conditions may not be to the consumer's detriment and must be put in writing or be recorded in such a way that the consumer can store them in an accessible manner on a long-term data carrier.
