II.                             Field of Implementation
The present general conditions of sale apply to all the orders placed at www.maisonberht.com.

Consequently, the fact for any person ordering a product offered on sale on www.maisonberht.com implies full and complete acceptance of these general conditions of sale that the Customer recognizes having been aware of before his order.

Maisonberht reserves the right to modify at any moment the present general sales conditions. Nevertheless, the General Sales Conditions applicable to the order placed by a Customer on www.maisonberht.com are those accepted by the Customer at the time of placing the order.

By validating his/her order on the website the customer acknowledges having read and accepted present conditions without reserve, and renounces to take advantage of his/hers. No dispensation of these General Conditions is allowed without prior written confirmation.

III.                           Offers and acceptance of the order

All our offers are without engagement. We are only committed by an order in case that order has been confirmed by email or after we started with the execution of that order. The information about the products and the prices, the detailed order information, are made and communicated with the restriction of changes.

IV.                           Delivery

www.maisonberht.com sells from Belgium, to different EU countries.  Wrong or not existing delivery addresses are the responsibility of the Customer and can result in extra costs. For delivery in a specific country, the Customer can contact www.maisonberht.comto have more information on delivery conditions to a specific country in the EU.

The given delivery times at www.maisonberht.comare not binding, and are used as an indication.

Orders placed online via the www.maisonberht.comsite are dealt with once the order is confirmed. The delivery of the products will then normally occur within 15 days, as also mentioned in the order confirmation. However, for some products, the delivery time will be longer than 15 days, which will always be mentioned in the specifications of the product, bought by the customer, as well as in the order confirmation.

The preparation and processing time of an order may be lengthened according to articles, and may require some more days. None delay in delivery can result in a breach of contract of the purchase or payment of claims in the advantage of the Customer, unless in case of deliberately delay.

Maisonberht cannot be held responsible should an event of force majeure occur, affecting production, availability, transport or delivery of the product.

Where incorrect prices are named on www.maisonberht.comdue to technical errors and a purchase contract materialises on the basis of these incorrect prices, Maisonberht is entitled to challenge the purchase contract even after having confirmed the order by e-mail, in which case payments already made by the customer are promptly refunded.

In case of non-delivery of the goods, the potential costs paid by the Customer are paid back without any interest or other compensation.

In case of non-availability of the product, Maisonberht will inform the customer by email. If it happens that initial delivery times cannot be met, a new delivery time will then be communicated to the Customer, according to the information available to Maisonberht. In this case, an option for the cancellation of the order, with a refund or a credit, will be also made to the Customer.

Maisonberht has the right to do partial deliveries after communicating with the Customer. If the Customer wishes to receive the products immediately available more quickly, he is advised to isolate these articles in a separate order and will pay twice the delivery charges.

An email is automatically sent to the Customer at the time of dispatch of the Products subject to the email address indicated in the inscription form not containing an error.

Transport times depend on the place of delivery. Maisonberht informs the Customers of the delivery times on a purely indicative basis, as given by the chosen transporter.

Transport charges are confirmed at the check out, , before the final confirmation of the order.  Transport charges will depend on the destination of delivery chosen as well as on weight and measurements.

Maisonberht informs its Customers that these delivery times do not include Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.

The products are packaged so as to respect the standards of transport in force, and to ensure an optimal protection of the products during their delivery. It is requested from the Customer to respect these same standards in the case of a product being returned because of after-sales service or for reasons of suitability. Any damage noted to a product arising from the product not being repackaged properly may lead to an only partial refund, or no refund in the event of the impossibility of resale in its state.

V.                             Price 

Prices indicated for each product are in Euro and are VAT inclusive. Delivery is only possible to the countries mentioned in the conditions of sale. Prices include the VAT applicable at the date of the order. Any variation of the VAT applicable rate may affect the sale price of the products of the catalog. However the prices cannot be modified once the Customer has placed his order. In the same way, if one or more taxes or contributions, in particular environmental tax is suddenly created or modified, whether it rises or falls, such a change will be reflected in the selling price of the articles present on the www.maisonberht.com site.

The product’s retail price is the one indicated on the website when the order is placed. This price does not include processing and delivery costs. These costs are invoiced as supplements and are clearly indicated before final validation of the order.

The debit for purchases on the customer's account is done at the time of the processing of the order.

An order is only considered valid once payment has been accepted by the system chosen (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Ideal, Bancontact). The data recorded by the payment system will constitute proof of all transactions.

VIII.                       Transfer of ownership

Maisonberht remains owner of the Products delivered until their complete payment by the Customer. The provisions above do not prevent the transfer to the Customer of the risks of loss or deterioration of the Products during delivery as well as of the damage which they could cause.

The transfer of ownership of the ordered product will take place as soon as the contract has been concluded, i.e. as soon as confirmation of the order’s validation has been sent, after acceptance of payment.

In all cases, the return is carried out at the Customer's own risk. It will be up to the customer to preserve any proof of return.

The returned products must be intact, in a perfect state for resale, and in original packing. They cannot have been worn, used or to have suffered even minimum deterioration, and in a state of perfect cleanliness. Any product which is damaged, incomplete, or whose original packing is deteriorated, will be neither refunded nor exchanged. This right of retraction is exerted without penalty, except for the transport charges which remain at the cost of the Customer.

In the event of having exercised the right of retraction, the Customer will receive, upon reception of the returned parcel and the validation by Maisonberht’s services, a confirmation email of the item having been returned. After validation, Maisonberht will then refund the sum according conditions stated here-before. Maisonberht will make all effort to refund the Customer within 10 days.

All the products on the site can be returned.  In any case, the right to cancel does not apply for products which have a personal character or have been made according the specifications of the Customer. Also in case of delivery of services for which the execution has been done with consent of the Customer before the end of the cancellation period as mentioned before, cannot be returned.

X.                  Complaints

Maisonberht reminds customers that it is the responsibility of the Customer to inspect his parcels upon reception in the presence of the deliveryman and to notify the transporter as well as Maisonberht of any anomaly (bumps, damage to the parcel, …) within two working days after the delivery of the goods.

In the absence of noting such points, the product is considered to be accepted by the Customer and cannot be the subject of any dispute concerning its delivery. No complaint related to the state of the parcel can be accepted a posteriori by Maisonberht.

All complaints or requests for information must be directed to info@maisonberht.com, so Maisonberht can take the necessary measures as quickly as possible.
