If this is not possible (because the goods ordered are out of stock or no longer available), or there is a delay for other reasons, or an order cannot or can only be partially carried out, the consumer (client) shall be informed within 30 days after the order has been placed and shall in that case have the right to cancel the order without costs and notice of default.
Article 8. Dissolution
8.1 Without prejudice to Visign Nature's rights under the law, Visign Nature shall be entitled by means of a written statement to the consumer to suspend or rescind the agreement in whole or in part with the right to claim damages from the consumer. If after the conclusion of the agreement circumstances come to the knowledge of Visign Nature which give Visign Nature good grounds for fearing that the client will not fulfil his obligations or if Visign Nature at the time of the conclusion of the agreement has asked for security for fulfilment and this security is not forthcoming or is insufficient (despite summonses), as well as in the case of bankruptcy of the client, an own application for bankruptcy by the client, suspension of payments, liquidation or a decision to this end, whole or partial transfer of the client's business or seizure of any part of his assets.
8.2 If circumstances arise with regard to persons and/or materials which Visign Nature uses or tends to use in the execution of the agreement, which are of such a nature that the execution of the agreement becomes impossible or so difficult and/or disproportionately expensive that compliance with it can no longer reasonably be required, Visign Nature shall be entitled to rescind the agreement in writing.
8.3 The buyer shall have the right, in the case of goods delivered on the basis of an order with Visign Nature, if there is a consumer purchase, in accordance with article 7:5 of the Civil Code, to dissolve the agreement within a period of 14 days without giving reasons, unless expressly agreed otherwise. This period begins when the items ordered are delivered. If the buyer has not returned the delivered goods to Visign Nature within 14 days after dissolution, the sale shall be a fact. The buyer is obliged, before proceeding to return, to report this to Visign Nature within the period of 14 days after delivery. The buyer must prove that the delivered goods have been returned in time (no later than 14 days after dissolution), for example by means of proof of postal delivery. The return of the delivered goods shall be entirely at the expense and risk of the buyer. Goods must be returned in their original packaging (including accessories and accompanying documentation) and in new condition. If the goods have been used by the buyer, encumbered or damaged in any way, the right to return goods will lapse.
Article 9. Force majeure
9.1 Force majeure shall be understood to mean, in addition to its definition in the law and jurisprudence, all circumstances beyond Visign Nature's control that prevent or render impossible the delivery of goods, including but not limited to strikes at Visign Nature and/or its suppliers, internet or WAP failures, electricity failures, e-mail traffic failures and failures or changes in technology supplied by third parties.
9.2 Force majeure may also be invoked if the circumstance rendering (further) performance impossible occurs after Visign Nature should have fulfilled its commitment.
9.3 If the period in which fulfilment of the obligation by Visign Nature is not possible due to force majeure lasts longer than 2 weeks, both parties shall be authorised to rescind the agreement, without any obligation to pay damages.
9.4 If at the commencement of the force majeure Visign Nature has already partly fulfilled its obligations, or can only partly fulfil its obligations, it shall have the right to separately invoice the part already delivered or the deliverable part, as the case may be, and the client shall be obliged to pay this invoice as if it concerned a separate contract. However, this does not apply if the part already delivered and/or deliverable part has no independent value.
Article 10. Warranty
10.1 Visign Nature offers no more extensive guarantee on delivered goods than the guarantee (conditions) of the manufacturer of these goods, without prejudice to the rights of the buyer arising from mandatory statutory provisions.
10.2 The buyer is obliged to check the delivered goods immediately upon receipt. If it appears that the delivered goods are wrong, faulty or incomplete, the buyer must (before proceeding to return them to Visign Nature) immediately report these defects in writing to Visign Nature. Any defects or wrong goods delivered should and can be reported to Visign Nature in writing within 14 days after delivery. Any defects that become apparent during use may be reported in writing up to a maximum of 60 days. Goods must be returned in their original packaging (including accessories and accompanying documentation) and in new condition. Putting into use after the discovery of defects, damage occurring after the discovery of defects, encumbrance and/or resale after the discovery of defects, will completely nullify this right to complain and return.
10.3 If complaints from the buyer are found by Visign Nature to be well-founded, Visign Nature shall at its discretion either replace the delivered goods free of charge or make a written arrangement with the buyer about compensation, on the understanding that the liability of Visign Nature and therefore the amount of compensation shall always be limited to a maximum of the invoice amount of the goods concerned, or (at the discretion of Visign Nature) to the maximum amount covered in the case concerned by the liability insurance of Visign Nature. Any liability of Visign Nature for any other form of damage is excluded, including additional compensation in whatever form, compensation for indirect or consequential damage or damage due to loss of profit.
10.4 This guarantee does not apply if: A) and as long as the buyer is in default towards Visign Nature; B) the buyer has repaired and/or modified the delivered goods himself or has had them repaired and/or modified by third parties. C) the delivered goods are treated carelessly or have been treated contrary to Visign Nature's instructions and/or instructions for use on the packaging; D) the unsuitability is wholly or partly the result of regulations which the government has set or will set with regard to the nature or quality of the materials used;
10.5 Visign Nature is not liable for damages caused by intent or equivalent intentional recklessness of non-managerial personnel.
10.6 The buyer may write for questions and/or complaints to Visign Nature, Samsonweg 22, 1521 RC Wormerveer or email to: email@example.com. Complaints are usually dealt with within 30 days. If this is not possible for any reason, the customer will be informed of the delay time.
