  3. The General Terms and Conditions may be fully or partially changed at any time. Consumers will be notified of any changes in a timely manner, in the form of an announcement by the Entrepreneur on his Website. If, within ten working days, the Consumer does not notify the Entrepreneur in writing that he does not agree to the changes on the grounds of reasonableness and fairness, the Consumer will be deemed to have accepted the changes. 


Article 4 - The offer and services

  1. If an offer has a limited period of validity or is made subject to conditions, this will be explicitly stated in the offer. Quotations and/or offers expire when this period has lapsed. The Cooling-Off Period is also explicitly communicated with the Consumer.
  2. The Entrepreneur is not obliged to abide by his quotations and/or offers if the Consumer, in accordance with the principles of reasonableness and fairness and generally accepted standards, should have understood that the quotation and/or offer or a part thereof contains an apparent error or mistake. 
  3. The proposal contains a description of the products and/or services on offer, which is as complete and accurate as possible. This description must be sufficiently detailed so as to enable the Consumer to make a fair assessment of the offer. If the Entrepreneur uses illustrations, they must be a true reflection of the products and/or services offered. Obvious oversights or obvious errors in the offer do not bind the business.
  4. Every offer contains such information that clarifies to the Consumer what his rights and obligations are in connection with accepting the offer. This particularly applies to:

    - the prices, inclusive of taxes;
    - any delivery costs;
    - the manner in which the agreement will be concluded and what actions are required for this;
    - whether or not the right of withdrawal applies;
    - the method of payment, delivery and execution of the agreement;
    - the term for accepting the offer and/or the term within which the entrepreneur guarantees the price;
    - the level of the rate for distance communication, if the costs of using the technology for distance communication are calculated on a basis other than the regular basic rate for the means of communication used;
    - whether the agreement is archived afterwards and, if so, the manner in which it can be consulted by the Consumer;
    - the manner in which the Consumer can check the details provided by him within the framework of the agreement and, if so desired, can correct them, prior to entering into the agreement;
    - any other languages in which the agreement can be entered into, in addition to Dutch;
    - the code of conduct the Entrepreneur abides by and the manner in which the Consumer can consult this code of conduct by electronic means; and
    - the minimum term of the distance contract in the event of a continuing performance contract.

  5. The Entrepreneur will notify the Consumer by telephone and/or digitally on the basis of the rates applicable at that time and make an offer from the Supplier/Service Provider that is most appropriate at that time and which best suits the Consumer’s needs. 
  6. The Entrepreneur has a facilitating role and is not a party to the Agreement that the Consumer and the Supplier/Service Provider enter into together. When entering into the Agreement between the Consumer and the Supplier/Service Provider, the General Terms and Conditions of the Supplier/Service Provider apply.

  4. The Entrepreneur confirms the telephone advice on products and/or services to the Consumer by e-mail. The Consumer subsequently sends his written consent to the Entrepreneur, also by e-mail. The Entrepreneur then e-mails the offer to the Consumer. The Consumer, after being given the opportunity to read the offer, can unambiguously accept the offer by e-mail. The Agreement is formed the moment the Consumer unambiguously accepts the offer.

Within the margins of the law, the Entrepreneur may investigate as to whether the Consumer will be able to meet his payment obligations, as well as inform himself of all those facts and factors that have a bearing on the sound conclusion of the Agreement. If based on this investigation the Entrepreneur has valid grounds to decide against entering into the agreement, he is entitled to refuse an order or request, or to attach special conditions to the execution thereof, supported by reasons.


Article 6 - Right of withdrawal
