Orders are only considered accepted by us when we have confirmed or delivered them. Cancellation of orders accepted by us or return by the buyer of delivered goods can only take place with the prior written consent of our company. In this case, we reserve the right to invoice 10% - increased to 25% in case of customization of the canceled order as compensation for the damage and expenses that this cancellation entails. This provision also applies in the event of partial cancellation.

DELIVERY

Statements of delivery times are only approximate and only commit us to observe them as strictly as possible. The delivery time for each order is only given as an indication without guarantee of delivery on the specified date. No order can be canceled unilaterally due to the expiry of the delivery period.

The cessation of delivery by companies that provide us with raw materials or manufacturing due to war, strikes, force majeure and other unforeseen events release us from the obligation to deliver for the duration of the disturbances and in full of the effects and consequences of these disturbances. These events give us the right to cancel the agreement without the buyer being able to claim any compensation.
