If, after selecting the products, the customer wishes to proceed with ordering the products placed in the shopping cart, the customer must enter the necessary details in the next screen so that the agreement can be concluded. The Buyer must provide their personal details, an e-mail address and, if necessary, a second address for the delivery of the goods, as well as a telephone number where they can be reached in the event of any questions or problems.
In the case of payment by credit card, the cost of the purchase will be debited after the contract has been concluded.

In case of non-payment, the vendor reserves the right to discontinue the sale and to suspend further deliveries, performances and services for as long as the outstanding invoices have not been paid by the customer.
9. The payment method – accepted payment methods
The payment methods offered are via Mollie.be – via payment cards and other payment platforms. This is not further specified, on the understanding that it may change.
10. The method and term of delivery
The method of delivery is stated in the product information accompanying the goods.
The vendor shall make all reasonable efforts to deliver the goods within the period stated in the contract. The customer acknowledges that the proposed term is indicative in nature. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, a delay in delivery shall not result in termination of the agreement or give rise to any compensation.
If the vendor expects a delay in the delivery of the goods, the customer shall be informed immediately. The vendor will then come to an agreement in consultation with the customer regarding the appropriate measures. The anticipated implementation or delivery period shall be suspended or extended in the event of frost, bad weather or supply problems.
The delivery dates given by the seller are not binding and are purely indicative. The delivery and/or implementation terms are therefore provided for information purposes only, and are therefore non-binding, unless expressly agreed otherwise by the parties. Delays in the performance of the agreement can never give rise to fines, damages or the dissolution of the agreement.*
The vendor cannot be held responsible for late delivery by one of its suppliers.
Orders will be delivered on the anticipated date to the address provided to the front door – ground floor.
The risk of loss or damage is transferred at the time of delivery of the goods to the customer.
Any event occurring beyond the control of one of the parties, which is unforeseeable and not caused by negligence or wilful misconduct or breach of law, has the effect of extinguishing the contractual obligations of the party concerned.
Potential provisions relating to insurance:
The vendor provides insurance for the transport of the goods until delivery to the customer. The customer undertakes to receive the delivery in good condition; visible defects and/or damage must be reported immediately to the courier before signing off and accepting the delivery. Concealed defects or damage must be reported within 24 hours via sales@4BILLIARD.com.
Potential provisions in the event that the client does not accept the delivery or refuses the delivery If, for any reason other than serious visible damage, the client refuses or neglects to accept the delivery according to the procedure used by the carrier, the ordered goods will be returned to 4BILLIARD.com; any costs involved will not be recoverable.
11. Period of validity of the offering or the price
Unless otherwise stated, the offering is valid for as long as stocks last. In other words, an offering that is no longer in stock cannot be sold; it can only be ordered via sales@4BILLIARD.com following mutual communication regarding this.
The price is valid as shown on the online store and in the shopping cart at checkout.
In the event of cancellation of the contract, the customer shall also be liable to pay fixed compensation amounting to 10% of the value of the order, at a minimum of €30.00, subject to the vendor's express option to claim higher compensation. If the agreement is cancelled by the vendor, the latter will owe equal compensation to the customer.
The vendor shall deliver to the customer an item that is in accordance with the agreement. The provisions relating to the legal guarantee obligation apply in accordance with Article 1649 bis of the Civil Code.
The customer shall benefit from the statutory 2-year guarantee for mechanical or electronic operation and its sub-components. This guarantee starts from full payment and only covers a lack of conformity that already existed at the time of delivery of the goods. During these 2 years, the vendor undertakes to replace or repair the defective goods (or parts thereof) free of charge.
The vendor reserves the right to exchange the goods if the cost of repair is disproportionate, or if repair is impossible.
Defects that manifest themselves after a period of 3 months after delivery are not deemed to be present at the time of delivery, unless the customer proves otherwise.
The legal warranty never applies to defects arising as a result of accidents, use of the product contrary to the purpose for which it was designed, aggravation of the situation through negligence, falls, failure to comply with the operating instructions or manual, modifications or alterations to the device, heavy-handed use, faulty assembly, poor maintenance, abnormal, commercial or incorrect use.
Nor does it apply to goods with a shorter lifespan – such as, for example, wear and tear goods or goods with a shorter expiry date – or in the event of intervention by a third party not designated by the vendor.
14. Retention of title
As long as the delivered goods have not been paid for, they remain the property of the vendor. The transfer of ownership of the goods supplied by the vendor shall therefore only take place upon full and complete payment for these goods.
The customer shall refrain from giving away, reselling or disposing of unpaid goods in any way whatsoever.
The customer shall take the necessary steps to inform third parties of the vendor's retention of title.
The customer is forbidden to pledge the goods delivered and/or still to be delivered, to sell them to third parties or to transfer them in any way whatsoever, for as long as they have not fulfilled all their obligations towards the seller; the goods must be returned on first demand.
The vendor reserves the right to enforce the right of unpaid vendor on the goods sold against third parties by fulfilling the formalities laid down by the legislator for this purpose.
The transfer of risk takes place at the time of delivery of the goods.
15. Force majeure
The agreement can be terminated by both parties without any compensation in the event of inability to execute it due to force majeure, strike, lock-out, etc.
In the event of questions or complaints, the customer can contact the vendor's customer service department as follows:

17. Vendor's liability

The vendor can in no way be held liable for compensation for indirect damages, economic damages or loss of profit resulting from an infringement by him against an obligation based on the agreement or these standard terms.
