The business relationship between STREETNATURE SPRL (hereinafter the “Company”) and anyone making online purchases of the merchandise and services offered by the Company at www.natural-shop.bio (hereinafter the “Customer”) shall be governed exclusively by these general conditions of sale.
The Customer shall inform himself about the present general conditions of sale by logging onto www.natural-shop.bio (hereinafter the “Internet Site”).
Moreover, these general conditions of sale are accessible at all times on the Website.
The Customer states that he or she is at least 18 years of age and has the legal capacity, or has been given parental authorisation, to allow him or her to place an order on the Website.
The Customer also states that the orders placed on the Website form part of the normal needs of his or her household.
Final validation of the order implies acceptance on the part of the Customer of these conditions in their entirety and at the price stated.
This validation is equivalent to the signature and express acceptance of all transactions conducted on the Website.
After each order placed by the Customer, the Company will send the latter an email confirming the order and indicating (i) the essential characteristics of the items ordered, (ii) their price and (iii) any delivery charges.
The Customer has 14 calendar days in which to cancel the order placed, without any penalty that may be due to the Company, in accordance with Article 47 of the Law of 6 April 2010 on market practices and consumer protection.
This cancellation period begins as of the day following the date on which the order was placed by the Customer.
Exercise of the right of cancellation is not in any way implied. Therefore, it cannot be deduced from the mere fact that the Customer refuses to receive an order.
In case of cancellation, the Company will reimburse the Customer within 30 days after such right has been exercised.
The cost of return of the merchandise will be at the Customer’s own expense.
The cost of return of the merchandise will not, in any case, be at the Customer’s expense if the merchandise fails to match its description.
4.1 Prices displayed on the Website are given in Euros, all Belgian taxes included (Belgian VAT and other applicable charges), exclusive of postage-sharing, handling fees for the order, and gift wrapping charges.
4.2 Orders are accepted depending on the availability of stock.
The Customer shall be informed of the availability of the items sold on the Website on the information page for each article.
If, despite the Company’s diligence, the items are not available, the Customer will be so informed immediately.
In such case, the Company will make every effort to suggest an article of equivalent quality and price. Failing that, the order will be cancelled automatically.
The merchandise will be delivered to the address provided by the Customer at the time at which the order is placed. The Company cannot be held liable in the event that the address may have been given in error.
4.3 The Customer may select a method of payment from among those suggested at the time at which the order was placed (secured payment, bank cheque, or bank transfer).
4.4 The merchandise will not be delivered until the payment made by the Customer has been received.
4.5 Upon delivery of the merchandise, the Customer shall be obligated to verify the physical conditions and contents of the package or packages delivered in the presence of the carrier.
It is imperative that any anomaly concerning delivery (damage, omissions, etc….) be noted by the Customer in the form of reservations, explicitly and in detail on the carrier’s delivery slip.
The Customer must also indicate this anomaly to the carrier, within two working days following the date of delivery, by registered mail with acknowledgment of receipt, bringing such claims again to the carrier’s attention.
No merchandise will be replaced or exchanged if the abovementioned rules are not followed.
In addition, the Customer pledges to simultaneously forward copies of said mailing, together with the enclosed delivery slip, to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
4.6 Any return of merchandise will become the subject of a formal written agreement between STREETNATURE and the buyer. The cost of returning the merchandise will be at the buyer’s expense.
Any order transacted on the Website and delivered outside of Belgium may be subject to taxes and customs duties imposed on the packages when they reach their destination. These customs duties and taxes on the merchandise are charged to the Customer and shall be the latter’s responsibility.
The Company has no obligation to inform the Customer of the customs duties and applicable taxes.
6.1 The Company sells nutritional supplements, in addition to other products. Any food supplements are not a substitute for a varied and balanced diet or for a healthy lifestyle. These food supplements must be kept out of the reach of children. Their recommended daily dose must not be exceeded.
Therapeutic applications of these supplements in no case constitute replacement for treatment or diagnosis under a doctor’s supervision.
The Company cannot in any case be held liable for improper use or inappropriate application of the products.
6.2 For all stages of access to the Website, the ordering process, and subsequent delivery of services, the Company assumes only the obligations of intermediary.
The Company cannot be held liable for any inconvenience or harm inherent to the use of the Internet network, specifically, for the interruption of service, non-authorised intrusion or the presence of computer viruses, or for any occurrence which might qualify as force majeure according to case law.
Merchandise ordered is delivered by the usual postal service or by other carriers. The Company therefore disclaims any and all liability in the event of significant delays in delivery caused by the postal service or other means of delivery, as well as for strikes or the loss of the merchandise ordered.
The risks of shipment are the responsibility of the Customer, who will have to initiate the usual claim process against the postal service or the carrier responsible.
Ownership of the merchandise will be transferred to the Customer only after total payment of the amount billed, including handling fees and payment.
The Company reserves the right to collect data about the Customer, particularly when the latter places an order or by using cookies (small application programs sent by an Internet server, which are recorded on the computer’s hard drive. These keep track of the website visited and contain a certain amount of data about that visit).
