terms & conditions
- Scope -
1. These general terms and conditions (hereinafter: the general conditions) govern all contracts, supplies and other services agreed between the customer and Griet Depoorter.
2. By placing an order, the customer agrees to be bound by the general conditions.
3. Unless Griet Depoorter has indicated otherwise in writing to the customer, the customer’s own general terms and conditions shall not be accepted.
- Entering into a contract -
1. Griet Depoorter shall confirm the customer’s order by e-mail. A contract is created only when payment has been successfully made.
Griet Depoorter is entitled to refuse, or impose special conditions upon, a supply, subject to giving reasons. If Griet Depoorter is unable to clearly establish the customer’s permanent or temporary address, an order cannot be accepted.
2. Order processes that for whatever reason have been technically or otherwise disrupted before the payment instructions have been completed are incomplete, even if the customer has received an order confirmation. Such an order will in principle therefore not be delivered. Griet Depoorter shall endeavour, however, to contact the customer to complete the payment instructions so that delivery can be made.
- Prices and costs -
1. The contract price is the current price at the moment when an order is placed with the webstore. The prices of articles are quoted inclusive of VAT.
2. The prices quoted in the webstore are exclusive of postage and administration costs.
3. Griet Depoorter is not bound by the terms of its offer in the event that there is any printing, typesetting or programming fault on its website.

2. Articles shall be delivered to the address given by the customer to Griet Depoorter.
3. Griet Depoorter shall dispatch accepted orders as quickly as possible in the order in which they are received.
4. The on the webstore indicated delivery term is approximate only and there is no right to compensation if actual delivery takes longer.
- Customs, Duties and Taxes -
1. The customer is responsible for assuring that the product can be lawfully imported to the destination country. When ordering from Griet Depoorter, the recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country. Orders that are shipped to countries outside the European Union may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; Griet Depoorter has no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.
2. It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting.

5. Griet Depoorter is entitled to refuse to accept a returned article or to send it back to the customer if the article appears to have been used, no longer carries the original labels, or reveals damage caused by the customer, or if the customer does not comply with the instructions for returning the article given by Griet Depoorter
