The present terms and conditions of sale govern the relationship between HILDE DEVOLDER CHOCOLATIER, whose head office is at, Sint-Michielsplein 10N, 9000 Ghent (Belgium), registered in the commercial register under BCE number 0825.458.716, operating under the name of “HD Ghent – by Hilde Devolder Chocolatier”, hereinafter called “the Vendor”, on the one hand, and any person or company ordering remotely (by means of placing an order online via the Internet site http://www.hildedevolderchocolatier.be), for himself/herself or on behalf of a third party, for professional or private purposes, hereinafter called “the Customer”, on the other hand. Depending on the Customers specific position (consumer or otherwise), some clauses in these terms and conditions of sale may not apply. HILDE DEVOLDER CHOCOLATIER offers to sell the Customer products online through the webshop of Hilde Devolder Chocolatier. The Customer declares s/he has the capacity to possess rights and be bound by obligations.

Article 1 : OBJECT
The products are described on the site http://www.hildedevolderchocolatier.be in good faith and as accurately as possible. The Customer may obtain extra information on the products presented on the site by sending an email to info@hildedevolderchocolatier.be, or by telephone to 00 32 (0) 495 65 52, or 00 32 (0) 9 269 02 00. The presentation of the products is not binding on the Vendor and does not constitute an offer in the legal sense of the term. The photographs, diagrams, drawings or videos illustrating the products are not contractually binding. Under no circumstances shall the Vendor be held liable for any errors that may occur in them.

Article 2 : ORDERING
As the products proposed for sale on the webshop of Hilde Devolder Chocolatier are foodstuffs that are prone to deteriorating or expiring rapidly, the right of withdrawal does not apply to the Customer. The products proposed for sale in the webshop of Hilde Devolder Chocolatier are those featuring on the website on the day that it is consulted by the Customer and are subject to availability. The Customer can find out about the various products that the Vendor offers on its website http://www.hildedevolderchocolatier.be. The Customer may navigate freely on the pages of the website with no obligation to purchase.

The products are presented using an information sheet (product description, composition, photograph and price) containing information that is as correct and precise as possible to give as faithful and complete a description as possible. However, considering the digital means of presenting the products online, it is possible that the Customers perception of the photographic representation of a product does not correspond exactly with the product itself. The Customer shall select the products s/he wants and specify the quantity. The products will then be automatically added to the Customers cart.

Before ordering a product displayed on the website, the Customer can open an account. S/he can do this at check-out or by clicking on “My account”. The Customer must fill out a form “Register”. The Customer must also supply an email address and choose a password that shall remain personal and confidential and will later be required for purposes of identification on the site. The Customer accepts that entering these two forms of identification is deemed to be proof of his/her identity and his/her acceptance of these general terms and conditions of sale.

At any time, the Customer may obtain a summary of the products selected by clicking on “My cart”, then continue selecting his/her products by clicking on the tab page “Webshop”, correct any possible mistakes by clicking on “Update cart” (although no corrections can be made once the Customer has clicked on “Proceed to checkout”), finish selecting products and place his/her order by clicking on “Proceed to checkout” and “Continue”.

To order the products s/he has chosen, after clicking on “Proceed to checkout”, the Customer must identify him/herself, if s/he has not already done so by entering his/her email address.

The Customer can choose the payment method desired as set out in article 6.

By clicking on “Place order”, the Customer completes his/her order. The order is recorded and the sale is complete. The Customer can no longer correct any data errors made when entering the order.

The confirmation email that the Vendor sends to the Customer concludes the contract and implies the Customer’s unconditional acceptance of these terms and conditions. The details of the order stated in the confirmation email are:

Summary of item(s):

  • Overview of the ordered article(s).
  • Total amount of the order.
  • Total amount of the delivery and handling of the order.
  • Information of the Customer.
  • Place and date on which the order will be sent (for information)
  • Information on payment modalities.
  • Contact details for the customer service of the webshop of Hilde Devolder Chocolatier.

The order form shall be recorded on the Vendors IT registers, which are stored on a reliable, durable server and shall be considered proof of the contractual relations between the parties. It also provides proof of the availability and price of the items.
Automatic recording systems are deemed to be valid proof of the nature, content and date of the order. The sale shall not be concluded until confirmation of the order has been sent by email to the Customer. The Vendor shall not be bound by the Customers order until written confirmation is sent that it agrees to process the order. The Vendor reserves the right to subject the order to other conditions, to suspend or refuse it, notably if the order proves to be incomplete, if the data supplied is obviously erroneous, if the Customer has failed to pay previous orders, or for any other reason that the Vendor may see fit. The information given by the Customer when s/he places an order is binding: in the event of an error in the Customers name or address, the Vendor shall not be held liable for its inability to deliver the goods. Orders shall not be final until they have been confirmed by payment of the price by the Customer.

If the product proves to be unavailable after the order has been finalised, the Customer shall be notified by email as soon as possible.

Article 4 : PRICES
The prices of the various products are given in euros (€) and include tax. The prices are net, before shipping costs. The Vendor reserves the right to change its prices at any time. The products, if available, shall nonetheless be invoiced in euros at the rates in force when the order was recorded. Placing an order implies accepting the price given for the chosen product. Shipping costs, where relevant, are given separately when you process your order and must also be paid at the time of completing your order.
The total price given in the order confirmation is the final price, including all taxes and costs.

Any order placed on the website and shipped outside Belgium may be subject to taxes and customs duties when it reaches its destination. The expense of the taxes and customs duties related to the delivery of an item are the responsibility of the Customer alone. The Vendor is not required to find out about and inform the Customer of any customs duties and taxes which may apply. The Vendor advises the Customer to contact the competent authorities in his/her country for further information on this matter.

The website of Hilde Devolder Chocolatier is governed by Belgian law and the items offered for sale on the site are all shipped from Belgium. Invoices are drawn up in euros, subject to Belgian value-added tax (TVA) of 6% and shipping costs subjected to 6%.
The Vendor accepts the following payment methods: PAYPAL (currently not applicable) and bank transfer. The Customer shall receive confirmation by email on receipt of payment for his/her order. Whatever payment method is used, the order shall not be taken into account until the payment has been validated. As long as the order has not been validated, it shall be recorded but not taken into account. Validation of the order is issued once authorisation to debit the account has been sent by the organisation that verifies and validates payment. The Vendor shall then send a confirmation email and the Customers account shall be debited.
The Vendor reserves the right to suspend the processing of an order if payment by bank card is denied or payment is not made. In these circumstances, the Vendor may consider the sale to be cancelled. The Vendor guarantees full confidentiality of bank information secured by the SSL protocol, which automatically checks the Customers right to use the bank card and encrypts all transactions to ensure confidentiality.

In general, the parties accept electronic evidence within the framework of their relations (email, back-up, etc).
The parties agree that the data recorded by the Vendor are proof of all the Customers transactions on the website. The data recorded by the payment system is proof of financial transactions. Order forms and invoices are stored on a reliable, durable server and shall be produced as evidence.

Orders are processed from Monday to Friday, except on public holidays. Parcels are dispatched from Belgium within a period of 1 to 15 working days following the payment of the order unless prevented by an act of God. The Vendor shall not be held liable for any late or non-delivery due to an act of God or an event beyond its control which may make performance of the contract impossible or more costly, in part or in whole, or due to the acts of third parties such as the suppliers to the parties to this agreement, subcontractors, agents and representatives, or if the Customer fails to fulfill his/her commitments. Acts of God which release the Vendor from its duty to deliver the goods are war, riot, fire, strikes, accidents and the impossibility of obtaining supplies. The Vendor shall keep the buyer informed in good time of the above mentioned events or incidents. Timely delivery of products shall only take place if the Customer has fulfilled his/her obligations to the Vendor. The lead times stated in the order or the order summary are given in good faith as an estimate only. The lead times are not in themselves an essential condition of the contract and the Vendor shall not be required to make any compensation whatsoever or to pay interest in the event of late performance of its duties. The Customer may also change the appointed date, under the conditions set out in the confirmation email, either on the website http://www.hildedevolderchocolatier.be, or by contacting the customer services department by sending a message to info@hildedevolderchocolatier.be, and paying any costs or modification of expenses related to the change of date. The Vendor reserves the right to entrust some services to third parties, employees or agents working under its responsibility within the limits provided by the law and regulations on accreditation. The products bought on the website http://www.hildedevolderchocolatier.be shall be sent to the shipping address supplied by the Customer. The Vendor shall not be held liable for the consequences of any errors made by the Customer at the time of ordering. The Vendor shall not be held liable for the non-performance of the contract in the event of acts of God, disturbances, or partial or total strikes, in particular relating to any means of transport or carrier services. A detailed invoice corresponding to the order, drawn up in the name of the Customer, shall be enclosed with the order. Return of products shall be accepted only for defects in quality. In that case, customers are requested to send an email to the customer services department at info@hildedevolderchocolatier.be accompanied by photos of the product as well as its packaging. Return of products is only permissible 7 working days after the package has been received.

In accordance with article VI.53 of the law of 21 December 2013 and article 47 § 4 6° of the law of 6 April 2010 on market practices and consumer protection, the right of retraction does not apply to contracts made through the website http://www.hildedevolderchocolatier.be.

Offers of sale are subject to the availability of products. If a product proves to be unavailable after the order has been validated, the Vendor undertakes to inform the Customer as soon as possible by email or telephone. The Customer may then request the cancellation of the order. When reimbursement is complete, the amount shall be credited to the Customers credit card account within thirty days of cancellation.

All text, comments, illustrations and images reproduced on our website are copyright. All rights are reserved. Any reproduction in part or in full without the Vendors consent is prohibited. Ordering does not entail the transfer or granting of intellectual property rights unless expressly stated.

Article 12 : LIABILITY
The products on offer comply with the Belgian and European laws in force. The Vendor cannot be held liable if it has performed its services in accordance with these regulations. The Vendor cannot be held liable for anything but fraud or gross negligence towards the Customer committed by the Vendor or its employees or agents. The Vendor shall not be liable for any indirect loss due to this contract, loss of business, loss of profit, loss of opportunity, loss of production, loss of activities, loss of clientele, damage to reputation, damages or costs, and this list is not exhaustive. Any complaints must be sent without delay by email addressed to info@hildedevolderchocolatier.be or by post addressed to the Vendor, whose address is given in article 1 of these general terms and conditions. If it transpires within thirty days following the receipt of the complaint that the Vendor has failed in the performance of its obligations, it shall then make a new delivery of the products concerned by the complaint, at its own expense.

Hilde Devolder Chocolatier keeps full ownership of the products sold until the total amount due by the Customer for that order has been received. The transfer of ownership of goods bought from Hilde Devolder Chocolatier by the Customer to a third party falls outside the scope of this contract. Only the Customer who originally bought those goods may claim to agree to the clauses of the present terms and conditions of sale.

The supply of personal information for online sales is compulsory because it is needed for order processing and shipping and for invoicing. This information is strictly confidential. Failure to supply information entails the automatic rejection of the order.
The Vendor undertakes not to divulge the information supplied by its Customers to any third parties. It shall be used solely for the purposes of internal management, that is, to manage orders, invoicing, service, solvency, marketing or personalised advertising, without this list being exhaustive. It may however be given to organisations under contract to the Vendor, for their own commercial prospecting. Visitors who wish to do so are entitled to oppose the use of their data for personalised marketing, by simple request and free of charge. The Vendor undertakes to respect the principles of the Belgian law of 8 December 1992 on the protection of privacy with respect to the processing of personal data. A Customer who has placed an order on the Vendors site may at any time consult, correct or delete the personal data that the Vendor has recorded about him/her by sending an email to info@hildedevolderchocolatier.be or a letter to the address given in Article 1 of the present terms and conditions.

Any order made by the Customer and all deliveries made by the Vendor imply full and unconditional acceptance by the Customer of the present terms and conditions of sale to the exclusion of any other documents such as the Customers own general terms and conditions, or any brochure, catalogue, etc, which are only to be taken as a guideline. The parties expressly agree that the present general terms and conditions apply to their commercial relations, unless otherwise provided in writing. The express waiver of one of the general or particular terms or conditions does not affect the application of the other general or particular clauses.
The cancellation or inapplicability of one of the clauses of the general or particular terms and conditions has no effect on the whole of the other provisions in the general and particular terms and conditions, which remain valid and applicable. The fact that the Customer has not received the present general terms and conditions in his/her native language does not exempt him/her from applying them. The ordering of any product proposed on the site supposes the reading and express acceptance of the present general terms and conditions, and this acceptance does not require the Customers handwritten signature. The validation of the order form by the Vendor constitutes an electronic signature, equivalent to a handwritten signature, confirming that the order is complete and that the sum due for fulfilling that order is payable. The Vendor reserves the right to change its general terms and conditions without personally informing the Customer and without the Customer being entitled to claim any compensation whatsoever. It is incumbent on the Customer to check periodically whether or not changes have been made. The Customer may copy or print the present general terms and conditions of sale as long as s/he does not alter them.

The present contract is governed by Belgian law. Any complaints must first be registered with our customer service department using the email info@hildedevolderchocolatier.be. The Customer should first contact the Vendor with a view to obtaining an amicable solution. Any disputes shall be settled under Belgian law by the Ghent courts, which have sole jurisdiction unless there is a mandatory statutory provision to the contrary.

The order will be packed with the utmost care. The special packaging protects the products in an effective way, so that the customer receives the order in pristine condition. The products are stored at optimal temperature and humidity. Because the temperature can vary greatly between different countries, the Vendor sends no orders from Friday to Sunday. That way the package is not stored in locations without climate control. The Vendor will retain the option to postpone the shipment a few days at high heat. For further information, the customer can always email us at info@hildedevolderchocolatier.be or call us on 00 32 (0)9 269 02 00 or 00 32 (0)495 65 52 81.
