Article 3: Offer
Despite the fact that the online catalogue and the e-commerce website are compiled with the greatest possible care, it is still possible that the information offered is incomplete, contains material errors or is not up to date. Obvious mistakes or errors in the offer do not bind Industria. Industria is only bound to a best efforts obligation with regard to the accuracy and completeness of the information offered. Industria is in no way liable in case of obvious material errors, misprints or printing errors.
If the Customer has specific questions about e.g. sizes, colour, availability, delivery period or delivery method, we request that the Customer contacts our customer service department first.
The offer is always valid while stocks last and can be modified or withdrawn by Industria at all times. Industria cannot be held liable for the unavailability of a product. If an offer has a limited validity period or is made under conditions, this will be explicitly stated in the offer.
Article 4: Online purchases
Products are ordered via the webshop. All products are in digital form. Often this is a digital ticket for an event. The Customer can order a product by going to the desired event. There the Customer can order an admission ticket. To do this, the customer must fill in some information. Which data is needed is different for each event.
After filling in the details, the order is completed by an online payment. As soon as the online payment has been completed successfully, the Customer will receive the digital product by e-mail.
The Customer has the choice between the following payment methods:
- via banking card
Industria is entitled to refuse an order due to a serious shortcoming on the part of the Customer with regard to orders involving the Customer.
Article 5: Delivery and performance of the contract
Articles ordered via this web shop will be sent to the Customer via email at the latest one day after payment.
Any visible damage and/or qualitative shortcomings of an article or other shortcomings in the delivery must be reported to Industria by the Customer immediately.
The risk due to loss or damage is transferred to the Customer as soon as he (or a third party appointed by him, who is not the carrier) has received physical possession of the goods. However, the risk already passes to the Customer upon delivery to the transporter if the transporter is instructed by the Customer to transport the goods and this choice was not offered by Industria.
Article 6: Reservation of ownership
The delivered items remain the exclusive property of Industria until the moment of full payment by the Customer.
If necessary, the Customer undertakes to inform third parties of Industria’s retention of title, e.g. to anyone who may seize the items that have not yet been paid for in full.
Article 7: Right of withdrawal
The provisions of this article only apply to Customers who purchase items online from Industria in their capacity as consumers.
The Customer has the right to revoke the agreement within a period of 14 calendar days without stating reasons.
The withdrawal period will end 14 calendar days after the day the agreement is concluded.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, the customer must inform Student Union Industria, Andreas Vesaliusstraat 13, 3000 Leuven, +32 16 30 10 48, email@example.com, of his/her decision to withdraw from the agreement by means of an unequivocal statement (e.g. written by post, fax or e-mail). The Customer may use the attached model withdrawal form for this purpose, but is not obliged to do so.
In order to meet the withdrawal deadline, the Customer must send his communication concerning his exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.
The Customer must send back the goods or hand them over to Industria, Andreas Vesaliusstraat 13, 3000 Leuven, without delay and in any case no later than 14 calendar days after the day on which he communicates his decision to revoke the agreement to Industria. The Customer is on time if they return the goods before the period of 14 calendar days has expired. In the case of digital goods, e.g. an admission ticket, the digital goods will be declared after the customer has communicated his decision to withdraw from the agreement.
The direct cost of returning the goods will be borne by the Customer.
If the returned product has diminished in value in any way, Industria reserves the right to hold the Customer responsible and claim compensation for any diminution in the value of the goods that is the result of the Customer using the goods in a way that goes beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
Only items that are in their original packaging, together with all accessories, instructions for use and invoice or proof of purchase may be returned.
If the Customer revokes the agreement, Industria will refund all payments received from the Customer up to that point, including the standard delivery costs, within a maximum of 14 calendar days after Industria is informed about the Customer’s decision to revoke the agreement. With sales agreements Industria can wait with the refund until they have received all the goods back or until the Customer has proven that he has sent back the goods, whichever comes first.
Any additional costs as a result of the Customer choosing another way of delivery than the cheapest standard delivery offered by Industria will not be refunded.
Industria will reimburse the Customer with the same means of payment the Customer used for the original transaction, unless the Customer has explicitly agreed otherwise; in any case the Customer will not be charged for such reimbursement.
The Customer may not exercise the right of withdrawal in respect of
- the delivery of newspapers, magazines or periodicals, with the exception of agreements for a subscription to such publications;
- the supply of digital content which is not supplied on a tangible medium if the performance has begun with the Customer’s express prior consent and provided that the Customer has acknowledged that he thereby loses his right of withdrawal.
