Terms and conditions

INCOTECH BV WEBSHOP TERMS AND CONDITIONS


Article 1: General

1.1 These terms and conditions govern the use of the webshop of INCOTECH BV, registered with the Chamber of Commerce under 0460.694.174 and with business address at BE-9820 Merelbeke, Ambachtsweg 32.

1.2 Only the following sales and delivery conditions of INCOTECH BV, which the customer declares to have read and to have integrally agreed to, apply to the obligations of the parties. These terms and conditions cancel and have precedence over the general and specific sales and purchase conditions of the customer, even if these are introduced afterwards. Deviating conditions should be agreed upon separately and in writing.

1.3 The fact that the customer does not receive the general sales conditions in his/her native language does not exempt him/her from those conditions.

1.4 With every electronic order of products the customer declares to explicitly agree to these terms and conditions by checking the check box “I agree to the terms and conditions”. An electronic order placed without this explicit agreement is, except in cases of fraud, technically impossible, so these terms and conditions are always binding for the customer. The sales conditions apply every time a reservation or order is made through the webshop via http://www.incotech.wwebshops.be/ or every time an order is made by e-mail to web@incotech.be.

1.5 The customer explicitly declares to be of age. If the customer is not of age, the order should be made by his/her parents or legal guardian. INCOTECH BV reserves the right to cancel the order if it should appear that the customer is not of age. In that case a damages invoice shall be drawn up that covers all related expenses of INCOTECH BV.

Article 2: Order

2.1 Every order is governed by the terms and conditions presented on the webshop at that moment, excluding any older or newer regulations.

2.2 INCOTECH BV is obligated to process the orders placed on the website as long as the ordered products are in stock and subject to the limitations described in these terms and conditions. 

2.3 INCOTECH BV reserves the right to reject orders in case of serious suspicion of legal misuse or bad faith, serious suspicion of commercial aims unacceptable to INCOTECH BV or exhaustion of the stock of a certain product.

2.4 An order is only definitive upon accepting these terms and conditions, the prices, and the description of the offer.

2.5 An order details at least the following information: product description, number of products ordered, product price, your name, your address, e-mail address, telephone number and, if applicable, your VAT number. The delivery address is your invoice address unless you have declared a different delivery address. The products shall only be delivered upon complete payment of the invoice.

2.6 INCOTECH BV is careful concerning providing confidential and up-to-date information on products to the visitors and customers of our webshop. The information that we display has been composed based on the information of third parties. As a result, we cannot guarantee that this information is always free of errors, complete and up-to-date. Sales advice to the end user is based on the data you have provided to us and the information provided to us by the manufacturer concerning the products involved. Our sales information and purchase advice is intended only to support the end user in reaching a decision between the available products. As a result, the sales information on our website, as well as any sales advice from our employees, cannot serve as a basis to obtain any rights in case of damage caused by information offered or selection of a wrong product. INCOTECH BV shall never be liable for damage of that nature. Additional expenses resulting from changing the product shall be paid by the customer.

2.7 You shall receive a savable copy of these terms and conditions with your order confirmation or at the latest with the delivery of your order. 

Article 3: Price 

3.1 All prices mentioned exclude VAT and any other taxes to be paid by the customer. If delivery, transport, booking or administrative costs are charged, this is indicated separately. 

For orders below 800 Euros (excluding VAT) a delivery surcharge shall be charged (the exact surcharge shall be displayed during payment in the shopping basket).

For orders of 800 Euros and up (excluding VAT) no delivery surcharge shall be charged on the condition that the delivery address is in Belgium.

For countries other than Belgium a delivery surcharge applies (the exact surcharge shall be displayed during payment in the shopping basket).

3.2 The price only covers products as literally described. The pictures included are purely decorative and may contain products that have not been included in the price.

Article 4: Delivery

4.1 The products shall be delivered to your door on the ground floor. Upon reception the receiver should inspect the product for damage. The receiver should declare any damage on the delivery note that the driver shall present, and then sign that note for reception. If this is not done, any later complaints on the state of the products shall not be processed by INCOTECH BV and the customer shall not be able to hold INCOTECH BV liable. Any visible defects concerning the delivered products should be reported within 48 hours after delivery in writing to INCOTECH BV. The use of even a part of the delivery implies the irrevocable acceptance of the products by the customer.

4.2 If no one is present at the agreed upon delivery address on the agreed upon delivery date, the order shall be returned. In addition to the invoice price, extra transport and administration expenses shall be charged of at least 125 Euros (the exact expenses depend on the number and/or type of products).

4.3 The risks are transferred to the customer as soon as he/she or a person appointed by him/her physically accepts the products.

In case of non-payment in whole or in part without serious and acknowledged reason on the expiration date, a lump sum is owed of 10% of the invoice price with a maximum of €125, in addition to the amount legally owed and without prior notice, even in case of a grace period granted.

7.3 In case of disputes concerning an invoice, the protest should be sent in registered writing within the 5 calendar days after reception, failing which the customer is assumed to have accepted irrevocably the invoice.

7.4 Releasing a protest, the termination with clearance, refusal of payment – even if not established officially – or any other fact pointing to the threatened insolvency of the customer or which endangers his/her credit rating, has the legal consequence that all unpaid invoices become claimable immediately.
