I. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE
1. Scope of application
These general terms and conditions of sale (hereinafter the "GTC") define the mutual rights and obligations in the event of the purchase of products or services on the Platform by a User (hereinafter "Customer").
The GTC express the entirety of the parties' obligations. The Customer is deemed to accept them without reservation, failing which his order will not be validated.
In exceptional cases, the provisions of the GTC may be waived insofar as such waivers have been agreed in writing. Such deviations may consist of the modification, addition or deletion of the clauses to which they relate and shall not affect the application of the other provisions of the GTC.
The Belgian Society of Pathology VZW/ASBL reserves the right to amend the GTC from time to time. The changes will be applicable as soon as they are published online for all purchases made after that date.
2. Online shop
Through the Platform, the Seller provides the Customer with an online shop presenting the products or services sold, without the photographs having any contractual value.
The products or services are described and presented as accurately as possible. However, in the event of errors or omissions in the presentation, the Seller shall not be held liable for this.
The prices with taxes are specified in the online shop.
The Seller reserves the right to change its prices at any time by publishing them online.
Only the prices indicated and the taxes in force at the time of the order shall apply, subject to availability on that date.
The prices are indicated in euros and do not take into account any delivery costs, which are indicated and invoiced in addition before the order is validated by the Customer.
The total amount of the order (including all taxes) and, if applicable, delivery costs is indicated before final validation of the order form.
4. On-line ordering
The Customer has the possibility to fill in an order form online, by means of an electronic form. By filling in the electronic form, the Customer accepts the price and the description of the products or services.
In order for the order to be validated, the Customer must accept these GTC by clicking in the indicated area.
The Customer must provide a valid e-mail address, billing information and, if applicable, a valid delivery address. Any exchange with the Seller may take place by means of this e-mail address.
In addition, the Customer shall choose the delivery method and validate the payment method.
The Seller reserves the right to block the Customer's order in the event of non-payment, incorrect address or any other problem with the Customer's account until the problem is resolved.
5. Confirmation and payment of the order
The Seller retains ownership of the ordered items until full payment of the order has been received.
The Customer makes the payment at the time of the final validation of the order using the chosen method of payment. This validation is considered as a signature.
The Customer guarantees the Seller that he has the necessary authorisations to use this method of payment and acknowledges that the information given for this purpose is proof of his consent to the sale and to the payment of the sums due for the order.
The Seller has set up a procedure for verifying orders and means of payment in order to reasonably guarantee against any fraudulent use of a means of payment, including by asking the Customer for identification data.
In the event of refusal to authorise payment by credit card by the accredited organisations or in the event of non-payment, the Seller reserves the right to suspend or cancel the order and its delivery.
The Seller also reserves the right to refuse an order from a Customer who has not paid in full or in part for a previous order or with whom a payment dispute is in progress.
Upon receipt of the confirmation of the purchase together with the payment, the Seller shall send the Customer an invoice, unless the latter is delivered with the order.
The Customer may request that the invoice be sent to an address other than the delivery address by sending a request to this effect to the customer service department (see contact details below) before delivery.
If a service or product is unavailable, the Seller will inform the Customer by e-mail as soon as possible in order to replace it or to cancel the order for this product and possibly to reimburse the related price, the rest of the order remaining firm and definitive.
Communications, orders and payments between the Customer and the Seller may be proven by means of computerised registers kept in the Seller's computer systems under reasonable security conditions. The order forms and invoices are archived on a reliable and durable medium considered, in particular, as a means of proof.
The Seller guarantees the conformity of the products or services to the contract in accordance with the law in force at the time of conclusion of the contract.
8. Right of withdrawal
If the Customer is a consumer, he hereby waives his right of withdrawal in order to be supplied as soon as possible after the conclusion of the contract.
9. Force majeure
If the Seller is prevented, in whole or in part, from executing the order due to an unforeseen circumstance beyond his control, this shall be deemed to be force majeure.
In the event of force majeure, the Seller shall be entitled to suspend the execution of the order, in whole or in part, for the duration of the force majeure. The Seller shall notify the Customer immediately.
If the force majeure continues for more than 90 days without interruption, either party to the agreement shall be entitled to unilaterally terminate the agreement by registered letter to the other party. The services already performed by the Seller shall nevertheless be invoiced to the Customer proportionally.
10. Independence of clauses
The illegality or total or partial invalidity of any provision of these GTC shall not affect the validity and application of the other provisions. The Seller reserves the right to replace the illegal or invalid provision with another valid provision of similar scope.
11. Applicable law and jurisdiction
These GTC are governed by Belgian law.
In the event of a dispute and in the absence of an amicable agreement, the dispute shall be brought before the courts of the judicial district of the Seller's registered office.
