1. Offers, conclusion of contract and order
- All offers and other expressions of Bold are without obligation, unless Bold expressly indicates otherwise.
- The agreement between Bold and the Customer is concluded after Bold’s order confirmation by e-mail of an order of products or services by the Customer or by dispatch of an order in accordance with the order confirmation.
- All printed matter, all catalogues, advertisements, price lists, promotional materials and other information relating to the Bold App, Bold Products, Bold Web Portal and Website (digital or otherwise) that describe technical data or product properties, provide only a general description and do not constitute grounds for all possible claims by the Customer.
- Bold does not warrant that the installation and use instructions supplied by Bold are error-free and that the items supplied have the properties stated in these instructions.
2. Order and execution of the agreement
- The Bold Products will be presented to you on our Website, where Customers can select and purchase these products. The presentation of products on the Website is not an offer in a legal sense. The offer is made by the Customer by completing the ordering process of the selected products. Our ordering process allows you to check and correct any errors before finalising your order. You can select the relevant Bold Product by clicking on the [BUY] button and then the [IN SHOPPING CART] button. You can also remove selected products from your shopping cart and replace them by pressing the [X] button or adjust the number of products shown in the shopping cart. Please carefully check your order and the information you have provided before placing your order. By clicking on the [Place order] button, you are making a binding offer to buy. Our receipt of your order will be confirmed by an automatic e-mail immediately after placing the order; this does not imply acceptance of the contract. We accept your order by sending you a separate order confirmation by e-mail or by shipping the products. We will strive to do this as soon as possible. Bold has the right to refuse orders without giving a reason, especially if the ordered product is no longer available.
- The delivery periods or dates mentioned by Bold or agreed between the parties are indicative target periods or dates and are thus not binding on Bold.
- If Bold does not have all products ordered by the Customer in stock, Bold may make partial deliveries where this is reasonable. Any periods such as delivery periods only start to run once the last partial delivery has taken place.
- The risk of damage, theft, loss or misappropriation of ordered products is transferred to the Customer at the moment that the Customer has the actual power of disposal, even if ownership has not yet passed to the Customer.
- The Customer is obliged to take delivery of the ordered products at the moment they are made available to him or at the moment they are delivered to him. If the Customer refuses to take delivery or fails to provide information or instructions necessary for delivery, the ordered products will be stored for a maximum of 4 weeks at the expense and risk of the Customer. In that case the Customer shall bear all related costs, including in any case storage costs.
- All obligations of Bold under any agreement or these Terms and Conditions are provided on the basis of Bold’s reasonable efforts (efforts based obligations) and are not performance obligations.
- The Customer waives his right of withdrawal.
- Sections 6:227b(1) and 6:227c of the Dutch Civil Code are not applicable.
3. Prices and terms of payment
- The prices shown on the Website are in euros including VAT and all other price components such as packaging, unless explicitly stated otherwise. Any shipping costs are also displayed on the Website and are also shown before the binding order is placed.
- Bold may change its prices at any time, but price changes do not affect a current order that has been accepted by Bold as described in article 2(1) above.
- Bold accepts payments by means of credit cards or online payment systems, such as PayPal and online banking. All related costs are at the expense of the Customer.
- Bold will send you an invoice for placed and accepted orders. Unless otherwise stipulated in the agreement, the invoice must be paid within 14 days of the invoice date.
- The Customer is not entitled to suspend payments or set off amounts owed.
4. Retention of title
- All products delivered by Bold to the Customer remain the property of Bold or its suppliers until all amounts owed by the Customer pursuant to any agreement with Bold, including the purchase prices for prior deliveries, have been paid to Bold, including, but not limited to, any damages owed, whether or not due to failure by the Customer to fulfil an obligation (or several obligations) towards Bold pursuant to an agreement or otherwise, as well as interest and/or collection costs owed.
- The Customer shall not pledge delivered products of which ownership has not yet been obtained or establish any other right on them.
5. Defects and complaint period
- The Customer is obliged to carefully check products delivered upon receipt to ensure that the products delivered comply with the agreement with Bold, including whether the correct quantities and goods have been delivered and whether the products delivered meet the requirements for normal use.
- If the delivered order is not satisfactory, the Customer shall submit a detailed written complaint within a period of 30 days. This 30-day period commences on the day following the date of receipt of the products delivered. Bold has no obligation under the purchase agreement with the Customer to deal with complaints that have not been submitted within the aforementioned 30-day period, in which case the Customer’s rights lapse.
- If, in Bold’s opinion, repair is not possible, repair will take a long time or involve disproportionately high costs, Bold may decide to replace the delivered products free of charge.
- Bold is entitled to amend and/or supplement the Terms and Conditions at any time, whereby these amendments and/or supplements shall take effect for the future, in particular when introducing new products or this is required pursuant to changes in legislation. The most current version of the Terms and Conditions can be found at https://boldsmartlock.com/general-terms-and-conditions-for-business-customers/
- Bold is at all times entitled to supplement or change its products and services, including the Bold Products, Bold Web Portal, Website and Bold App. Bold will make reasonable efforts to inform Customers of any material changes.
- Bold is not liable for interruptions, changes or termination of product development or services.
7. Warranties, liability and indemnifications
- The Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Bold Products, Bold App, Bold Web Portal, Website or other products and services offered by Bold are made available to it on an “as is” basis and that Bold makes no warranties with regard to the Bold Products, Bold App, Bold Web Portal, Website or other products and services offered by Bold.
